HOARDERS OF VISUAL STIMULI

A freshly-baked SWARM Mag editorial to officially launch our third quarterly topic and to usher you into the age of RE:PURPOSE. Enjoy the accompanying text below by our Head Stylist Kateřina Hynková.

The editorial is inspired by the constant human need to look for something new, exciting, and stimulating. We are overwhelmed by information, false information, photos, and stories on Instagram, news on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms available to us 24/7, year-round.

On one hand, it makes our life way easier, however, on the other, our brains can only take so much without taking a break. The same way we greedily collect unnecessary amounts of clothing, products or trinkets, we carry this visual trash on our backs. Is it sustainable? How much ballast and for how much longer we will be able to carry?

SWARM Mag is a family with roots deep down some rich, dark, fertile places. We like to sift through the hidden, shiny onyx sands of up-and-coming creativity to dig out whatever is thriving down there and bring it to you. But how did this peculiar chemistry happen?

The Czech designer Cindy Kutíková combines different crafts in expanding the conception of fashion design. Her thesis project, an outfit from 90.000 beads and 2.5km of thread, served as proof of concept for the interdisciplinary artist’s subsequent founding of a design brand. Today’s interview provides Cindy’s insight into the industry, her creative process and why she chose the traditional Czech format of glass beads.
