When Helmut Lang came out with a perfume duo in 2000 and followed up by a third one in 2002, it was one of those rare fashion moments that occurs when an independent designer with a cult following translates his vision to another medium, thereby expanding his world. Who can forget (and by who, I mean those over 35 and really interested in fashion) the iconic ad campaigns on New York’s taxis or the long narrow SoHo store opposite Lang’s flagship where you could only by those three products, the very definition of minimalism?
Denis Music is a Ukrainian jewelry designer with an emphasis on contemporary style. His work is a minimalism that reflects the beauty of organic shapes. Each wearable object is handmade in limited quantities.
Alicia Hannah Naomi is a Melbourne, Australia based jewelry designer. Her pieces are made utilizing a lost-wax casting technique. They are hand carved in wax, cast in metal and finished by hand.
Naomi sees her work as a meditation on mountains and rugged terrain, evocative of their somber beauty. Her most dramatic pieces are the “crystal mountains” made using hand-cast, hand-dyed resin, giving each creation its own unique appearance due to the varying pigments. They have a severe, organic feel like that of snow tipped mountain peaks or blackened glaciers.
Dear readers. We would like to present to you new work by the Paris-based Danish designer Tobias Wistisen

First time I came across Taiana Giefer’s work, I spent a while examining one of her scarves. It was majestic, in a fairy tale way, something from another era. I wondered about how it was constructed, the crisscrossing wool felt surfaces that formed a kind of a grid, leaving openings like fortress embrasures. The fringes looked liked dreadlocks; the whole things was tactile, alive. A year later I met the California-born designer when we used her scarves for one of the StyleZeitgeist magazine editorials.
