My contribution to the Grassi Museum for applied arts is still on show till November 2013. The Jeremy Scott for adidas poodle sneakers I have borrowed the museum, from my private collection, are now featured in the official book/catalogue of the show. Edited by Kerber Verlag. The exhibition is well worth a trip to Leipzig and my poodles are well taken care for by all the lovely co-workers from Grassi! I shot the pictures of the JS Poodle which you can see in the catalogue on page 157!

I decided to go punk for aesthetical reasons… and perhaps for gender reasons as well… but about gender I will report soon… very soon! Sooner then later – stay tuned! So I made the Jeremy Punk installation for No74, in Berlin.
Jeremy Scott… A little total look jumps out of his adidas spring/summer 2013 collection… Between all the teddy bears, poodles, pastels and neons, there is a shroud of punk and politics… or maybe just aesthetic punk without politics… your pic on how to interpret it…
Most ignorant people would complain about his punk design… but let them yell at their own mirroirs… let them cry and drink up their own bitter tears while we rejoice in the fact that we are free! Enjoy your freedom and never take it for granted! It is not a given! It is a privilege to be free! And so I say, we still need a revolution! Freedom should not be a privilege! It should be a free must!
Peace and love!
P.S. The little installation is to be seen at No74, in Berlin!

This coming June 6th, 2013, the Czech center in Berlin will host a great discussion and a little showcase of TON’s furniture, where ALex Gufler will introduce the process of cooperation between the designer and a company… how design is created into an actual material piece we all can enjoy and love! Be there!

Labor day… the traditional little 24 Hours in which the hard worker gets to believe for a nanosecond that anybody/the system gives a shit about him/her. I never really understood labor day. What are we the people that work our asses off supposed to do on this day? Celebrate our rights? Celebrate our jobs? Celebrate that we got one day off? Use this day to start a Read More…
The concept was to cut it with the ridiculous Berlin fashion week that only brings mostly untalented creations to the light of day, as well as uninspired designers. In fact, the so called Berlin fashion week has been cut from a real “week” to a mere four to five days…

I went to the opening of the exhibition: “STARKER AUFTRITT!” at the Grassi museum in Leipzig on March 27th 2013. I was there to see all the amazing shoes the two lovely curators Liza Snook, founder of the virtual shoe museum and Sabine Epple put together.
Hundreds of the most fascinating shoes ever made were protected inside thick elegant glass vitrines as if diamond tiaras were on display. That is exactly what I demanded for the Jeremy Scott x adidas poodle when I was asked by the curators to lend it to them from my private collection. They really delivered a great show and gave the poodles a worthy place in shoe design history!
Bare in mind that of all the shoes that were in the exhibit, only maybe seven sneakers were present, of which only one original adidas sneaker and they chose Jeremy to represent the brand. So it is a great honour! Just so you understand my point, check out some more models present in the exhibition after the jump! Read More…
Shifts and changes. Test shoot made for new video which is coming up soon…
