    COS x Agnes Martin at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

    Written by Fashion Tales

    We are thrilled about the recently announced collaboration between COS and the world-renowned Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York that will be ongoing from October 7, 2016 until January 11, 2017, as sponsor of the museum’s major retrospective of American painter Agnes Martin (1912–2004).

    One of the preeminent painters of the twentieth century, Martin is known for subtle, evocative canvases that feature delicate penciled lines and grids; an aesthetic that has had a significant influence on artists of her time as well as subsequent generations. Filling the Guggenheim’s famous rotunda, the exhibition includes paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture, celebrating the full scope of his practice. Martin’s work, committed to the expression of innocence, happiness, and beauty, has inspired the COS design team for many years.

    COS Creative Director, Karin Gustafsson said of the project, “It is a privilege to sponsor an exhibition of Martin’s work. The incredible richness and tactility of her work has always inspired our fabrics and designs; her use of subtle colour and dedication to her technique and style elevates apparently simple lines and grids to something extraordinary.”

    To celebrate the brand’s sponsorship of the Guggenheim exhibition, COS will create a capsule collection inspired by the works of Agnes Martin. Informed by Martin’s iconic geometric compositions, the COS design team have created a unique set of prints for a 12 piece collection of men’s and womenswear. Karin Gustafsson adds, “The opportunity to create this collection whilst exploring the subtle reinvention of classic silhouettes has been fantastic. The minimal pieces created form an effortless, artistic capsule offering”.

    On sale from the 7th October 2016, the pieces will be available to buy worldwide with a percentage of the proceeds from their sales being donated to the Agnes Martin Foundation.

  • Carl Kostyál - For Pete's Sake

    Written by Fashion Tales

    The late Peter Amdam was a musician, DJ, art critic, editor, curator and literary scholar with a particular love of philosophy, aesthetics and the history of ideas. He was an international figurehead in the so-called straight-edge genre, the driving force of the bands Onward, Sportswear and For Pete’s Sake. He was an editor at Natt og Dag, a regular contributor to Kunstkritikk.no and a host of other publications and, during the past five years, also increasingly engaged in organizing exhibition projects, often in collaboration with Carl Kostyál gallery.

    This exhibition is a homage and a farewell party all at once, For Pete’s Sake brings together a number of the artists Peter admired and collaborated with.

  • Reebok x FACE Stockholm

    Written by Meghan Scott

    A surprisingly unlikely, yet wonderfully synergetic duo has collaborated; Make-up brand FACE Stockholm and sportswear brand Reebok. Bringing us nostalgic bright 80’s colours, reminiscent of our cool aunties and moms, the make-up brand has released a full range of products that are available for purchase in FACE Stockholm stores and online. Reebok complements the collection, taking the colours and providing shoes in our favourite 80’s throwback styles, including Freestyle High and Princess versions. Style blogger Julie Sariñana of Sincerely Jules is the face of the new campaign.

    A few of us from Odalïsque Magazine went to an intimate meet and greet in the Stockholm flagship store last night to see the collection. We had an absolutely fabulous time mingling with the staff and the founders, dynamic mother daughter duo, Gun Nowak and Martina Arfwidson.

  • Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit

    Written by Anne van Beers

    It’s been almost three decades since the Air Max 1 debuted Nike’s visible Air technology, the shoe’s design has become so popular; it even has its own annual celebration.

    Today, the silhouette marks another milestone: It pairs with transformative Nike technology Flyknit to form the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit, the lightest Air Max 1 ever. 

    The Flyknit technology, which made its debut in 2012, enables Nike’s designers to engineer every stitch of a shoe upper to deliver maximum performance, all while producing 60% less waste than traditional cut-and-sew methods.

    At this summer's competition, more athletes than ever before will be wearing Nike Flyknit.

    The Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit is available in men's and women's sizes and colorways starting July 28, 2016
