SHARP MOVES IN RED

Our last theme for 2020, FRONT RUNNER, is going out with Olympic-sized celebratory fireworks and red hot flashes of the signal gun. As usual, enjoy our very own fashion editorial as the proverbial cherry on top of the theme, this time inspired by two iconic video games. The best holiday present for us and for you – from us to you.

“Use it or lose it” applies not just to the muscle mass in our body but also to our brains. You’re going to need them both for this game.

The Reboot/21 collection by one of SWARM Mag’s founding mothers, the ingenious creator behind the Czech fashion brand Dry Milk of Virgin Mary (DMOVM), follows the respective aesthetics of two video games. The popular aggressive fighting game Tekken and the stunning indie adventure game Journey. Each game has its own rhythm and storytelling. The marriage of them birthed the muse that inspired the DMOVM studio and the SWARM Mag team.

Let’s have look at a fantasy world

“Complexity isn’t always necessary for impactful design.” Being a Swiss citizen of Vietnamese descent, Duc Siegenthaler has been navigating the ebb and flow of blending in and standing out since childhood. SWARM Mag interviewed the founder and Creative Director of the Siegenthaler label about avoiding reducing modularity to “a gimmick”, constant self-discovery, indulging in play, and more.
Mossy, mouldy, earthy – all these adjectives give you a very rough outline of the garments the Copenhagen-based Solitude Studios craft and sometimes even grow and ferment. Their A/W23 collection, Wood Wide Web, hints at the recently popularised notion of “mycorrhizal internet”, the sprawling matrix of mycelium that connects fungi and various members of the plant kingdom, ferrying nutrients and other kinds of “information”.
The goal of “bringing visions to life”, so essential and ubiquitous in the art world, is often hindered and challenged by compromises, most often on the technological and material side of things. But putting Susanna Pugliese's fantastical fashion sketches next to the near-identical final garments is a testament to her commitment to fulfil this goal no matter its labouriousness. Read on for the interview with the Italian-born fashion designer in possession of a wide range of artisanal skills.
“My practice is a lot like my compost bin.“ Welcome to the ever-germinating and sprouting world of Beth Williams, a disabled designer and multi-disciplinary artist who specialises in knitwear, living textiles and soft sculpture. With the designer, we discussed their pivotal creative concept, Uzumaki's World, the use of innovative compostable yarn, striving to get one's voice heard in predominantly able-bodied fashion spaces, the immense power of community, and more.
