Prym® X Dr.Paco Cao


Artist and psychological mixologist Dr. Paco Cao presents a new process of making cocktails. This method transforms the way we usually consume cocktails. Instead of selecting drinks from a predetermined menu, the client fills out a questionnaire and, according to their answers, Dr. Cao creates a personalized recipe for each client.

Paco Cao is unfaithful to any particular medium. Employing a wide range of disciplines and materials, his work establishes a strong relationship between art, audience, and context as it challenges the boundaries between high and low culture. His work has been shown at and/or made in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, El Museo del Barrio, Creative Time, and the New Museum in New York City, as well as El Prado Museum (Madrid, Spain), MART (Rovereto, Italy), BOZAR (Brusells, Belgium), MUSAC (León, Spain), and MNCARS (Madrid, Spain). Cao holds a PhD in art history from the University of Oviedo, Spain.

Pia Coronel

"Finding and creating identity is an important part of growth in life. In my work, I explore what it means to search for oneself in places where structure and chaos collide. I strive to explore the feelings and challenges one faces in the struggle to claim a place in society. My work deals with our constant search for “it” as I believe that there will always be a battle within us to create that perfect identity. Cultures, societies, tribes, all have different expectations of how people should be. My work explores these feelings that come about when we are trying to figure out who we are and why we are here."— Pia Coronel

When it comes to collaborations, Maison Martin Margiela stays more busy than ever before these days. After having previously worked with G-Shock and Converse, the fashion brand announces this week a Japan exclusive luggage collection with Globe-Trotter, as reported by Selectism. Once again Margiela applies its signature “emblematic trompe-l’œil (French for “deceive the eye”) concept print” that has also been placed on the Converse sneakers. The outcome is a range of suitcases inspired by Globe-Trotter pieces from the 1920′s to 1950′s with a distinct used vintage look.

Marni Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

Marni Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

Italian brand Marni presents their new Fall/Winter 2013 Collection during Milan Fashion Week. Ever since their recent collaboration with H&M and in general a much stronger product offering, Marni has certainly gotten a lot more attention in the press and slowly starts showing up at a lot more retailers around the globe. It seems like especially internationally Marni has now a much stronger position.

The color palette, materials and silhouettes are once again great in the new collection. Overall the line feels a little more muted than previous ones though, so do not expect as many strong colors anymore.

Check out the full Marni Fall/Winter 2013 Collection in the above gallery.
