MaryMe-JimmyPaul Redefining Feather Fashions

MaryMe-JimmyPaul Redefining Feather Fashions is almost an understatment… They are totally taking it to a whole nother planet! Using a large variety of Marabou, Ostrich, Chandelle and Goose Feathers MMJP’s creations are Met Gala and museum worthy. Marie Burlot and Jimmy Rinsum, the designers behind the over the top MaryMe-JimmyPaul describe their label as an “area that exists between art and fashion…”

We believe that fashion can be more than just an article of clothing. We want to tell a story with our collections and sometimes, creating big sculptural statement pieces is the best way to express our stories. Also, we graduated from the Rietveld Academy, a modern art school in the Netherlands that has also been a definitive influence. – www.notjustalabel.com/editorial/maryme-jimmypaul

We’re just gonna post some of our favorite tumblr pics… scroll through and let it simmer. We feel like we’ve died and gone to feather fashion heaven!

STEP 4. Dab a layer of white glue around base of the feather (we went down about an inch) and apply glitter.

Fly by Night Public Artwork

in EVENT,FINE ART

Just in case  you missed it, here are some stunning images from Duke Riley’s public artwork “Fly by Night”. We are completely mesmerized by the imagery and footage taken at this artful event in NYC! Who knew that pigeons rigged with LED lights could be so captivating!

Riley orchestrated a series of performances occurring regularly throughout late spring. At the call of a whistle, thousands of birds emerged from their home in a grand, converted historic boat docked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The pigeons circled above the river as the sun sets over Manhattan, and small leg bands, historically used to carry messages, were replaced with tiny LED lights, illuminating the sky in a transcendent union of public art and nature.

Duke Riley’s Fly By Night from Creative Time on Vimeo.

CURATORIAL STATEMENT

…Duke Riley’s Fly By Night brings the rock dove back to the forefront of the New York story once again, assembling an unprecedented fleet of specially trained birds that pay homage to the inhabitants of Cob Dock over 100 years later. Housed on a former naval aircraft carrier once used to train helicopter pilots, this new flight crew made up of Homers, Flights, Rollers, Tumblers, Tipplers, and even the ancient Syrian Damascene (the artist’s favorite), are Riley’s winged collaborators taking to the skies above Wallabout Bay. Twirling, swooping, and gliding – together, apart, and together again – Riley orchestrates an unpredictable flying composition. Like the birds themselves, no two performances are the same. Lacing together old New York and new, Fly By Night asks us to stop, watch, listen, and revere this extraordinary creature that has shared the triumphs and tragedies of the human experience – uniting individuals, cultures, and generations of fanciers in a tale of both the ancient and modern city.
