PSFK collaborator looks to design a new wardrobe for the 21st century.
Last week I was speaking to Piers, the Johnny Depp-like founder of this nimble monolith PSFK. The conversation went something like this:
One of the original members of the PSFK team shares his thoughts on a new marketing gimmick from the delivery company.
Imagine my happiness when I receive a parcel from UPS (Delivered by the Royal Mail!). The delivery giant had sent me a box with a picture of the Olympic stadium on the front. What could be inside? Perhaps tickets for the opening ceremony, an Olympic mascot keychain–certainly something interesting. My excitement is heightened when I find another box inside, eagerly I pull it out and open it. Its empty. A mistake, an error at the packaging factory? Then I see the text “Without logistics the Olympic Stadium would be this empty.” It’s a joke. A joke on me….
New mobile app gives an instant price comparison between 60 London wide fleets.
The PSFK research team in London recently spent time testing a new app to order cabs. After traveling for some of the most menial tasks (Collecting dry cleaning, lift to the pub, running kids to playdates), they started to look at the numbers. Kabbee gives an instant price comparison between 60 London wide fleets.
It wasn't the just the clothes that inspired and intrigued us, it was the whole deep dark perfectly presented package.
It wasn’t the just the clothes that inspired and intrigued us, it was the whole deep dark perfectly presented package. His life story, his nihilistic viewpoint and his constant flirtation with an alluring darker side which we loved gaining glimpses into. In PSFK’s opinion he was the most fascinating fashion designer of our time. He presented his graphically clear silhouettes through challenging and sometimes utterly horrific imagery. From the naked fat lady, tubes flowing out of her mouth reclining gracefully inside a mirrored box who appeared at the end of his ss01 show through to his AW09 show presented in a mortuary in the presence of a menagerie of stuffed animals.
Laura Weir from Drapers Record tells us that Ironic (sorry, Iconic) brand Biba’s main licencee Biba International has gone into administration. Is PSFK surprised? Here’s a snapshot of what we wrote two years ago when they relaunched:
The BBC pulled a blinder last week. After their show “How To Get On In The Art World” they invited viewers to download a free couple of pieces by the notorious Chapman brothers. The downloads were available for the following 48 hours and only required printing and hanging on your wall. No parting with your hard earned wedge. PSFK went straight to the bbc site and did our art buying for the day but we’re betting this digital art is not worth the $18m paid for Warhols Liz in NY last week.
It was Friday night and there were about 30 of us crowded into a mid terrace house in north London. The band had already set up in the upstairs living room and our host called us away from our conversations to enter the most intimate of concert experiences.

Whoa there Muiccia! Either PSFK does not understand your direction or you’ve taken up costume design for the new Chronicles of Narnia film? With a collection which was more London than Milan and a presentation tied more around the texture than the aesthetic this mortal is finding hard to decipher this enegma:

It looks like Dolly Jones over at Vogue.com has pulled off a blinder in getting behind the scenes access to Lagerfeld and his team at the recent Chanel show in Monte Carlo. Presenting a fashion show on film has always been a toughy. Other Fashion TV companies seem forever missing the point that while a show in reality is a runway and atmosphere on film you have to work much harder to convey the designers message.

There is a T-Shirt revolution underway online. This is Alex Singh’s third interview in the series. This time Alex catches up with Peter Lundgren, CEO and Editor in Chief of T-Post whose unique T-Business revolves arround creating graphic t-shirts commenting on news stories sold via subscription. Every month a new T pops through your door just like a newspaper! We hope these interviews will give our readers a complete picture of the first Web 2.0 fashion companies out there. Alex will also set up his own Web 2.0 T-Shirt project the progress of which he’ll track on his blog ‘Flavour Comes First‘.

By now you already know that the hottest ticket for London Fashion Week was not Gareth Pugh, Giles Decon, Jonathan Sunders, the Fashion East Shows, McDowells fashion fringe or even Armani showing in London (Piss off back to Milan you showman says Simon King of PSFK!) it was the relaunch of BIBA a defunct 60’s label playing on the malleable nostalgia of fashion editors who were far to young to remember your first brilliant reincarnation which rather synically has been reborn aka the phoenix from the cow-pat.
