_London: Barbican Art Gallery 30 Years of Japanese Fashion

Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion is the first exhibition in Europe to comprehensively survey avant-garde Japanese fashion, from the early 1980s to the present. Curated by the eminent Japanese fashion historian Akiko Fukai, Director of the Kyoto Costume Institute, the exhibition explores the unique sensibility of Japanese design, and its sense of beauty embodied in clothing.
Japanese fashion made an enormous impact on the world fashion scene in the late 20th century and designers such as Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto redefined the very basis of fashion. Their works will be shown alongside Kawakubo’s protégé, the techno-couturier Junya Watanabe, together with the acclaimed Jun Takahashi, and the new generation of radical designers including Tao Kurihara, Fumito Ganryu, Matohu, Akira Naka, Mina Perhonen and Mintdesigns.

_HURTS @ Estragon

And we followed HURTS again (Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson) this time for their concert in Bologna at Estragon, 18.02.2011. For those who follows theohurts on twitter, you might know that the singer arrived the day before and had the chance to visit Bologna. The concert started an hour later than expected, the crowd became even more excited and the atmosphere just right. It was possible to see it live in streaming on ..WE LOVED IT. There's no much else to say :'D

"What a night! Grazie mille Italia! Forever an inspiration." -theohurts

"Unspoken" from album "Happiness" was the first song of the night.

"Verona" from album "Happiness". For a while Bologna was the new Verona ;)
