BIRGIT KOS X DRY CLEAN ONLY MAGAZINE

BIRGIT KOS X DRY CLEAN ONLY MAGAZINE

Dutch supermodel Birgit Kos stars in the new Beymen 2023 Spring/Summer Campaign shot by the famous duo Cristian Borillo and Martin Cespedes, aka Hunter & Gatti, who have accomplished successful projects for the big fashion houses in the fields of art, film, and photography with their visionary perspectives.

We discussed her rise to international superstardom within the fashion and modeling realms, her greatest achievements, and the new Beymen campaign she starred in.

Interview By: Ceren Taspinar

1. Do you remember where your interest in fashion came from?

I have never been very interested in fashion itself. The interest and passion for it really came from modelling and being in front of the camera trying to create an image with the whole team.

2. What kind of value do you place on the early jobs that helped you work up the ladder and reach the level of fame you have today?

Every job I did has helped me in some way. To learn how to move and work with my emotions but also how to communicate with new teams all the time and how to represent yourself in the right way. I value every job I have ever been able to do.

3.  Of the four major fashion capitals, which city best encapsulates your fashion aesthetic and how?

I think I am not the most fashionable person, I really enjoy it mainly because of the passion I have for modelling itself and meeting new people all over the world. So my style is very casual and comfortable but I guess I would fit in the best in New York just because its so many styles blended together.

4. What is your definition of a ‘Model as Muse’ and which model are you most inspired by?

My favorite model will always be Linda Evangelista. I think she was everyone’s muse back in the days.

5. What do you consider to be a great achievement in your career?

It’s hard to choose one but definitely my Vogue Italy cover is in the top 3 of my greatest achievements 

6. What was the most memorable part of your Beymen campaign shoot?

I think the house we shot in and working together with the photographers. It was a very nice team work on set.

7. How do you know when a job is right for you and what appealed to you most with the new Beymen Campaign?

The team really appealed to me by doing the Beymen shoot as the team and also seeing their previous campaigns. It’s always a really cool concept so I knew this was going to be great as well. Knowing what’s the right job for you too has many different factors from what the previous work looks like to what is the team you work with and how the exposure of the job you’re doing is. That’s why it’s so important to have a good relationship with your agency’s because they usually will tell us what is right to do.

LOUIS VUITTON X YAYOI KUSAMA

LOUIS VUITTON X YAYOI KUSAMA 

CREATING INFINITY:

THE WORLDS OF LOUIS VUITTON x YAYOI KUSAMA

A decade after they first collaborated, Louis Vuitton and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama reunite once again for an exclusive collaboration that offers an assortment of polka-dotted accessories and ready-to-wear pieces. Kusama’s signature objects, motifs, and imaginings of infinity take-over the Maison and all of its product categories: from bags to menswear; womenswear to sunglasses; fragrances to shoes and accessories. In turn, there is an evolution of some of Louis Vuitton’s own emblematic pieces, making them equally part of their own and Kusama’s transformative world. Yayoi Kusama’s extensive portfolio of works brings a sense of cheerfulness to the fashion house.

In line with Louis Vuitton’s past artistic collaborations, the encounter between the Maison and Yayoi Kusama is grounded in sincerity, in iconoclasm, and above all, in a mutual appreciation of craft and excellence over the commonplace. At Louis Vuitton, when it comes to the magic of making objects, anything is possible.

The collaboration brings Kusama’s talismanic objects, signature dots and hypnotic motifs into the Maison’s own emblems. The first drop will explore four distinguished motives of Kusama’s repertoire, painted dots, metal dots, infinity dots and psychedelic flowers. Each incarnation of the polka dots has been presided over by Kusama personally – as have all the many and varied objects in the project – being moved with precision to the nearest millimetre, brushstrokes echoed in uncanny detail with their texture and weight intact. It is in this pursuit of the infinite through craft that both Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama are ultimately united. It is in the making of magical objects that transcend space and time that both are engaged in and recognise each other through. It is here that both Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama want the person who possesses such objects to feel both the care and emotional investment it took to make them; to become part of their story and one that will hopefully become part of the story of future generations – stretching into infinity.

PRADA MODE DUBAI
9-10 NOVEMBER, 2022
AT ICD BROOKFIELD PLACE, DIFC

Prada Mode, the trending pop-up that also serves as a traveling social club with a focus on contemporary culture, presented its eighth iteration in Dubai featuring an installation by the renowned British artist Damien Hirst. “I’m thrilled and honored to be invited by Miuccia Prada to recreate Pharmacy for Prada Mode in Dubai after our successful collaboration in Moscow,” said the artist. “I’m working really hard with a complicated but beautiful space, ICD Brookfield Place, to create harmony between the inside and outside of the new building.”

On November 9 and 10, Prada provided members of the club with a unique and immersive art experience along with music, dining, and conversations in the newest landmark building in Dubai designed by Foster + Partners. The building was transformed by Damien Hirst, into a new edition of Pharmacy, a fully functioning restaurant, and the follow-up installation to the artist’s work with Prada Mode Moscow in 2021.

For Prada Mode Dubai, Hirst designed furniture, architectural details such as a huge molecular model in its window, light boxes, and a wallpaper design taken from a catalogue of prescription medicine. It is fitting for this to be made especially for Prada Mode: the artist’s long-time friend Miuccia Prada designed the staff uniforms for the original restaurant.

ADESUWA LAUNCHES ‘LEGACY WORLD’

A Cultural And Political Echo – Adesuwa Paves The Way For Emerging Artists in Africa Through “Legacy World”

Interview: Ceren Taşpınar 

Driven by her determination to make a difference by launching “Legacy World”, model-activist Adesuwa Aighewi paves the way for African craftsmanship to break new ground across the globe. The multidisciplinary brand serves as a vehicle to offer young creators the opportunity to exhibit their work to a global audience. At its core, it’s a creative platform to showcase and highlight African art while restoring pride in local craftsmanship. 

Adesuwa Aighewi during the creation phase of ‘Legacy World’.

Legacy World is based around expanding the perception of Africa’s art scene and providing exposure to emerging artists. How were you first introduced to the Pan-African art scene?

Adesuwa Aighewi: I moved to Nigeria when I was 3 years old to Benin City, my father’s home town which is part of the Benin kingdom, Edo Empire. 

How did your background shape your creative vision? 

Adesuwa Aighewi: I see all sides like Chanel.

Your products vary from ornate jewelry pieces that employ images and motifs associated with ancestral existence such as the “Legacy Necklace” to “Ivie Hoodie”, a cultural staple of the Nigerian Royalty. How did you come up with the concept of mixing traditional African style with contemporary fashion garments such as a hoodie?  

Adesuwa Aighewi: I like juxtapositions like myself. Opposites but one. I wanted to show it visually: royalty but also the common man. Traditional & Modern. Yin & Yang.  

The ‘Ivie Hoodie’, was handmade in Benin by royal beader, Uwaila Loveth Irorewean. 

The first collection embraces Africa’s cultural wealth and shares stories from the national past with a spiritualistic approach. What else inspired you during the creative process of your first collection? 

Adesuwa Aighewi: My mother. She’s a Horticulturist and Buddhist.

What would you say the fundamentals were in building the brand and the collective? 

Adesuwa Aighewi: Unity. Female empowerment and Beauty.

Over the past five years, you have collaborated with local artisans from Nigeria to Asia and were able to witness their opportunities and challenges first-hand. Where do you think their biggest challenges originated from? 

Adesuwa Aighewi: Education and play. Without both of those things as humans it’s kind of an unfair game in this life.

Where does your appetite for collaboration and creation come from? 

Adesuwa Aighewi: I want peace. I know unity takes us there. It’s no secret but each has to try.

As someone who’s well known for their successful modeling career, being featured on the covers of magazines to walking numerous fashion shows, how doe it feel to work on the design side of things? 

Adesuwa Aighewi: Like a human.

Legacy advocates for sustainability by encouraging customers to hold onto their jewelry. What does pursuing sustainability in fashion mean for you? 

Adesuwa Aighewi: Finding existence from life in art.

How would you like to see legacy grow?

Adesuwa Aighewi: Beyond me. 

“At its ethos, Legacy is a celebration of the human experience and acts as a catalyst to globally unite people and cultures.”
