The narrow black and white prison stripe: Although an iconic pattern, the regular, almost mathematic formation seems underrepresented and undocumented. Most probably due to its restrictions in optical reproduction. I'd like to propose it as eternal substitute for plaid.

Glass house Philip Johnson, 1949
Black stone mosaic. Black leather psycho divan. May a new life begin. It's my imaginary therapist's consultation. I have achieved nothing yet.

Acne Spring/Summer 2012
Since my latest photo booth experiment with pink velour pants, I am in the mood for a sleepover. Preferably Blair Waldorf style with candy cotton, popcorn machine and boytoy servants.

It was early in the morning. Grey and windy. Piles of clothes surrounded by low-society and myself. Once touching a piece of pastel pink woolen velvet, a teethless man smiled at me and said: 'Take it, it's yours now.'

Camp is an aesthetic sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value. When the usage appeared in 1909 it denoted: ostentatious, exaggerated, affected and theatrical. By the middle of the 1970s the definition comprised: banality, artifice, mediocrity and ostentation so extreme as to have perversely sophisticated appeal. I am pseudo-intellectual camp.

When the essence of Kim Kardashian and Nicole Scherzinger is injected into male genes, sexual characteristics become manifest. As a result, the intermediate state of being is replaced by exaggerated virility.

Beyoncé - Green Light 2006
From Eva Hesse to Beyoncé Knowles. Again, latex appears as a catalyst for anti-establishment revolt. Whereas the mutual motif is breaking artistical and social taboos, the ultimate driving force of pop will always remain 'sex sells'.

Artworks Eva Hesse
In Eva Hesse's work, the use of 'worthless' materials such as latex, fiberglass and plastic refers to the industrial ruins of a defeated German nation. By reinventing sculpture through aesthetic insubordination, she performs her very own, personal protest.

T-shirt Helmut Lang
Decisions have to be made. And words are taken seriously. A six-lettered term to define cultures, subvert cultures, undergo cultures. Tribal.

Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 vs. Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2005
Presumably, the scandal series will find a new climax every season. And most probably, the cast will always feature familiar names. But in the end, that's what we love about sequels. Same same but different. And Miuccia will always win.
