    REBEL WITH A CAUSE

    FABRIK BRANDS. While the sphere of style of the Nordic countries is a mystery to many and is often associated with minimlist aesthetics and practitionality assumingly representing a utalitarian and traditional traits FABRIK BRANDS sheds some light on how in reality things are up in the north in this extensive article. As some fashion brands stray into political and socio-economical dimensions expanding what is generally agreed to be wearable fashion, Barbara I Gongini 'rejects normative pressures and societal order, in favour of raw human statements'. FABRIK BRANDS further writes, the brand of Barbara I Gongini is 'challenging the patterns of an old-fashioned society with experimental geometric cuts and undefined silhouettes' and as such it brings people to the realziation that the 'true beauty of fashion lies in giving people the opportuity to share their inner selves'.

    MODULAR OBJECTS

    EXHIBITION. Fashion is so much more than just the plainness of cloth sewn together in a form-fitting way where adherence to the rules of garment making and general usability are prioritized over uniqueness of design and the playfulness of its allure. With the Modular Objects project Barbara I Gongini embarks on an in-depth exploration of form from an avantgarde perspective and strives to manifest an artistic take of the subject. This project focuses on the strict attachment to the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and seeks to practice multifunctionality of garment through a variety of methodological processes. Modular Objects challenge the perception of a piece of attire to create a unique and functional object that adds dimension versatility to what’s generally accepted as wearable. With its distinctive visual output, it opens up the senses with its stimulating appearance.

    Chelsea Wolfe for Bullet Magazine

    When it comes to Chelsea Wolfe, there are some things that are too personal—in fact, most things are. But you’d never be able to guess that after listening to Hiss Spun. On her seventh album, the Sacramento-based artist delves into her own experiences with anxiety and addiction, laying bare all the emotions that come with growing up. And in a world where all we see are sun-drenched selfies and pics of girls on what feel like perennial vacations, Wolfe details the feelings of an endlessly bad day. That unapologetic honesty, coupled with the 33-year-old’s dissonant yet dreamy howl, makes Hiss Spun more than a rarity—in showing her own bruises, Wolfe unearths ours.
