Franz West 1947– July 26, 2012

The Austrian artist Franz West has died. The artist, known for his largescale hyper-coloured sculptures that referenced both organic forms and a dream-like surrealist sensibility, exhibited internationally for over thirty years and was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2011 as recognition of his life’s work. The artist had been ill for a while and passed away peacefully in Vienna. The news was announced in a joint notice by the Franz West Foundation, Gagosian Gallery, Galerie Meyer Kainer and Galerie Eva Presenhuber. In that statement the galleries noted  that ‘Despite his international fame, his humour, generosity and quiet energy never left him. He managed his recent illness with great fortitude and was thinking of projects and working on exhibitions, sculptures and catalogues until a few days ago. The world has lost a great artist who changed the way people looked at art and themselves. His great sense of originality and his generosity with other artists, writers and musicians will be missed by us all.’

Nike Men’s Air Vortex Vintage Sneaker Fall/Winter 2012

The Nike Men’s Air Vortex Vintage Sneaker for Fall/winter ’12

Devised in the mid 1980s as part of Nike’s ground-breaking V-Series, the Vortex running shoe was an instant classic and popular amongst runners who appreciated its advanced cushioning. Re-issued by the brand decades later, the Vortex Vintage has all the popular hallmarks of the original and is given an authentic vintage finish to match the retro style.

Crafted with a comfortable nylon and suede upper, the sneaker features a thickly cushioned sole unit with a vintage effect wash across the midsole, to give it an authentic aged feel. The sneaker is finished with bold pink Nike branding on the heel and swoosh down each side.

A Louis Vuitton Gun Grip, Really?

If there’s ever a good time to announce a new gun grip, this is definitely not it, given the events in Aurora. Nonetheless, a Las Vegas lounge and gun range called Machine Guns Vegas has released this grip in a Louis Vuitton monogram style. We’re not sure how that’s even possible since it looks like the house is in no way involved. A press release also talks about their “gun girls” having previous gun or military experience, so Machine Guns Vegas could also be a strip joint. Who knows, everything about it is in unbelievably poor taste.

This was Modeblogger Fleamarket 21st July, Arena 21, MQ Vienna

Yes, we went there in the early afternoon and we were almost late: the Viennese fashion bloggers had sold out a big part of their private vintage and second hand treasures. Still our camera could grasp some impression: nice people, dogs, fashion bloggers, items, etc.
