Tags: , ,

Diane Pernet knows the fashion industry inside and out. She spent years running her own label and working as a costume designer before changing course in 2005 and founding one of the first fashion blogs, A Shaded View on Fashion. In 2008, she expanded the ASVOF brand with A Shaded View on Fashion Film, a film festival that has since been held in Paris, Rome, Tokyo and recently made its American debut in New York City. Never seen without her iconic style, she recently emailed us from Paris to talk about her unique position in the world of fashion, the effect the internet has had on the industry and her abiding passion for film.

The Fixer

A Conversation with Fashion Designer Lynne Hiriak

Lynne Hiriak owns more sweaters than anyone you know. Being forced to wear sweaters almost every day during her formative years, it’s no surprise her personal collection currently hovers around 200. Throughout her professional career, Hiriak has become something of an expert on the garment, honing her specialty during her time as a knitwear director at Michael Kors, and sharing that knowledge as a consultant to labels like Derek Lam and Ralph Rucci. Outside of her consulting work, Hiriak runs Cardigan New York, her own boutique label specializing in knitwear and ready to wear pieces. A long time resident of New York City, she recently spoke with LASTBLOG about her love of sweaters, her experiences collaborating with major fashion labels and her evolving relationship with the city she calls home.

Interview: Artist Sebastien Leon

Sebastien Leon transforms spaces with sculpture and sound. Creating installations that can take up entire rooms, Leon frequently uses sound not only to enhance his art, but to help him realize each piece’s goals. As much a musician as a visual artist, his work shows that visual and audio perception are essentially inseparable, just as they are in the natural world. A frequent collaborator with other artists and musicians from around the world, he holds a unique perspective about how contemporary art exists across cultures. He recently spoke to us over email from his studio in Tribeca, NYC, to discuss some of his recent pieces, his interest in the increasing cross-disciplinary projects, and how he embraces the unexpected when creating something new.

Interview: Architect Massimiliano Locatelli

Massimiliano Locatelli works to turn dreams into reality. Most of his early life was spent working towards a career in architecture, and by his mid 20’s he had already earned a PHD in Interiors and founded his own firm, CLS Architetti. Working between New York and Milan, he’s designed homes, stores, and entire buildings in cities like Paris, London, Moscow, Saigon, and many others. Mixing the natural with the fantastic, he has created spaces that wouldn’t appear in most architects’ wildest imaginations, even going as far as to design an entire store that appears to be upside down for Viktor & Rolf. He recently spoke with us over email about some of his projects, the techniques and themes he’s excited to explore in the future, and his lifelong love of architecture.

Interview: Artists Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe

Through their art, Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe bring their audience into a fully formed world of their own creation. The two have been making large scale installations for the last 10 years, and have become renowned for the intense attention to detail they put into every piece. Walking through the rooms Freeman and Lowe create, visitors will find libraries full of completely original books and disused print factories and commercials that never existed, all to make the installations feel like a forgotten piece of history. Though they’ve been working on a new installation, they spoke to us via email about about their long-running collaboration, the research and details required to make their installations believable, and how their previous installations affect any new work they begin.
