Object 12-1 Collection by Matija Čop
Croatian designer Matija Čop might be relatively new to the game, being a graduate student, but his collection, Object 12-1 is a striking mixture of sculpture and conceptual fashion. Inspired by architecture and the chiseled stone material used to construct the Šibenik cathedral, Cop used one material that was laser cut into small pieces that were then assembled together using the “plug and feather” technique.
Each sculptural garment, while made from a contemporary material, utilizes similar qualities to a building being built from stone – small pieces that work together to become a new form. After three months of production, the dramatic collection shows striking works of art that might just change how we view the future of fashion.
On this day in music history: August 31, 1978 - “Live And More”, the seventh album by Donna Summer is released. Produced by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, it is recorded the Universal Amphitheater in Universal City, CA (live tracks), Rusk Sound Studios, and Westlake Audio in Hollywood, CA (studio tracks) in early 1978. Her second double album, the first three sides are taken from a live concert (during the “Once Upon A Time Tour”) recorded at the Universal Amphitheater in early 1978. The fourth side of the album contains the “MacArthur Park Suite”, a seventeen minute long medley of three songs (“MacArthur Park”, “One Of A Kind”, and “Heaven Knows”). The album will further demonstrate Summer’s musical versatility beyond her “disco diva” image by covering jazz standards in her set, including “The Man I Love” and “I Got It Bad And That Ain’t Good”, as well as the pop ballad “The Way We Were”. It will spin off two singles including a cover of the Jimmy Webb penned pop classic “MacArthur Park” (#1 Pop, #8 R&B) (originally sung by actor Richard Harris in 1968 (#2 Pop) ), and “Heaven Knows (w/ Brooklyn Dreams) (#4 Pop, #10 R&B). “Live And More” will hit number one on the Billboard Top 200, number four on the R&B album chart, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
