For F/W 1999-2000, Viktor and Rolf showed a couture collection that featured Maggie Rhizer on a revolving pedestal where she was dressed outfit by outfit, layer upon layer like a "Russian Doll". It was a great moment in fashion that I've often heard about but never seen with my own eyes. The brilliant Dutch team gets a retrospective at the Barbican in London running June 18th to September 21. That collection along with the magnificent "Atomic" showing and the 1996 "Launch" are to be restaged and TI considers it a fashion pilgrimage!

Is there any man on earth cooler than Dune's Fumihiro Hayashi ? He's cult, he's king and he's still reeking that underground cool. More and more I'm collecting magazines as a cult object as the mainstream glossies get more and more dull and corporate. And TI's number one fetish right this minute is every back issue of Dune I can find. Don't you love the way the logo is inconstant and keeps shifting and changing? Plants design ideas in our heads for sure!

TI won't argue with a group that got their name from a Roxy Music song. Ghosts is from the new LP "Velocifero" . TI lives for the goth chic look of the lead singer here, Ms. Helen Marnie. Highly editorial.

If I were a designer I'd buy tons of "karakami" (woodblock-printed paper) as a fabric reference. Karocho, a firm that has been around since1624 in Kyoto has been creating karakami using the same techniques for nearly 400 years. I love the texture and the elegance of the technique involved . They are a beautiful example of meditative design marked by a degree of subtle colors and refined patterns, taken from a very organic idea of life.It is beyond "green" methinks.
