Early Warning Signal: Masha Vasyukova's Post-Digital Paradigm

I-330 Teaser from The Image NYC on Vimeo.

Masha Vasyukova is a young filmmaker who shuttles between Paris, where she is based, and London and New York where she finds constant inspiration. I first noticed the video work she did for Iris Van Herpen's FW 14 presentation which led me to Masha's beautifully prismic collaborations with Craig McDean. Masha's passionate yet nuanced image-making stayed in my memory bank for the past year, which is why it was such a pleasure to engage her in the following conversation.

EARLY WARNING SIGNAL: PEET DULLAERT'S DECISIVE ELEGANCE

Such a precise sense of identity always draws your attention.Such a precise sense of identity always draws your attention.

Peet Dullaert is the 24 year old Dutch designer who in only one year of work has set the antennas of dedicated followers of fashion on high alert . Peet is currently deep in the studio prepping his Spring 2014 offering. TI got his attention for a sec in the hopes of unraveling the essence of Dullaert's process. It is a process that presents a kind of classic femininity zapped with the nonchalance, speed and verve of very modern life. Subverting that illusory casualness with an obsessive attention to rigor, quality and detail, Dullaert is that rare young designer with a decided design signature all his very own. Such a precise sense of identity always draws my attention, though every time I have dinner with Peet I'm amazed at the open optimism of his youthfulness against the authoritative sharpness of his clothes. That combination is lethal. Here, he explains its genesis.

CURRENT LISTENING: MARQUES TOLIVER: CONTROL FROM THE Land of CanAan LP

Marques Toliver: An R&B Crooner With Strings AttachedMarques Toliver: An R&B Crooner With Strings Attached

In February of this year, in a sprawling Greenpoint loft , I made the acquaintance of Marques Toliver. We were put together for the purposes of possibly doing business by my friend Filip at Playout, a brand and talent management company in Antwerp.

Early February was the frenzy of Fashion Week, so I had debated whether I really wanted to jump on the G train to parts unknown of Brooklyn to weigh the future market index of another up and coming young musician. I mean, I love listening to music, but how the hell do you know musical stardom in advance?

EARLY WARNING SIGNAL: GEORGE HARVEY

Early George Harvey imageEarly George Harvey image

For a young man who cuts such a clear path through the London Fashion Scene, photographer George Harvey is one of the most unaffected new talent you could hope to find. But don't let the nonchalance fool you. In record time Mr Harvey has been ensconced in the ID camp, shooting covers and edits with a striking graphic quality and a beautiful sense of color control. George's images are pop, now , tight, fast and fluid. Tune in as he shares with TI his thoughts on the image trade.

ANTHONY VACARELLO'S Soigné Modernes

Vacerello has an idea of a woman and she is certain and strong. But even as she is angular and structured, she remains always, always, feminine.

EARLY WARNING SIGNAL: Leonardo Aguirre : TEXT BY TRICKY MAUS

Leonardo Aguirre is a rising talent on the design scene, based out of Los Angeles. He specializes in highly structured yet deconstructed clothing, with lots of intricate tailoring. There's a continuing thread of tension throughout his season less collections. Pieces are added to the continuous dialog, each a small fractal component of his overall vision.
