Letter to Cardinal de Bernis, April 23, 1761 (viamisterchu)

misterchu: Yes. This man Marcel and his way of thinking, remembering. And thinking about remembering also. I am hoping to go to see the last of him (and many others) in the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris next month (I need to go to Spain as it is, and compared to the Austin, Texas I find myself living in it really is a good opportunity and not so very far). Anyway, interesting post. Be well. MC

Mister Chu, your way of thinking is also very captivating, immediately making the reader present in the magic that is your expression. Thank you for sharing your vision.

NEW WORLD COLLECTION

Posted in Egypt, fashion, siwa by simonalcantara on August 3, 2010



This collection is based on several series of photographs I have taken within the last year in different parts of the world at various times of day.  This particular collection references, New York and Berlin at sunset, New York City and Tokyo at night, and the Siwa Oasis in Egypt at daytime.  In most of the photos I played with the exposure to make something familiar reveal a different aspect, a different perspective.  “ When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change”. The world is changing at an accelerated speed, which we have never witnessed before, and it is apparent in the drastic storms, earthquakes and volcanoes we have experienced just in the last few months. We all need something familiar to steady ourselves, familiar but not exactly the same as in the past. We are looking for a new angle, a new perspective we had not observed previously. We need something to remind us “All Is Well”.

The runway images on my inspiration boards were my favorites from the collections and which I felt reflected this new way of looking at familiar things.  I imagined what jewelry one would wear to complement these clothes and I created them using my design vocabulary.  I hope it speaks to you.
