Super Sharp Reloaded: RETURN II JUNGLE at Selfridges until Thursday 6 September 2018

Saul Milton and Tory Turk present Super Sharp Reloaded, the second instalment of RETURN II JUNGLE. πŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”Š

Held at Selfridges on the 3rd floor in the Designer Studio, the latest instalment comprises of a static installation inspired by British music and fashion of the golden years of Jungle music from the mid-late 90’s.

Initiated by Saul Milton’s extensive Moschino Collection – the unique display will explore the way in which the Jungle era played host to the appropriation of Italian high fashion labels.

Drawing on Jungle music whilst also transporting it into the present day, and re-vamping the genre for the modern-day music fan, the installation will be accompanied by a specially curated soundtrack by Saul featuring audio quotes from jungle artists such as Navigator, Uncle Dugs and renowned writer Brian Belle-Fortune.

There will also be a specially created film by Tom Archer, featuring rare footage by Garry Clarke from his archive of junglists and ravers at popular club nights such as One Nation and at venues like Sanctuary.

Inside Arc at Fashion Space Gallery until 28 July 2018

Archives are usually repositories of objects, not intended for further use, rarely displayed in static exhibitions or museum cases. πŸ‘— πŸ‘˜ πŸ‘š

The Arc is a working archive, consisting of garments, accessories and other paraphernalia amassed by designer Jennefer Osterhoudt. Many items are by John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, with whom she worked very closely from the beginning of their careers and throughout their time at Givenchy, as an accessories designer in Paris during the 1990s. Created by stylist Nick Royal, this constantly expanding collection is regularly frequented by established designers and stylists who use it for editorial photoshoots and campaigns.

This exhibition highlights the eccentricities and rarities from this archive, pieces that as much embody the processes behind creating elaborate toiles in expensive fabrics as reveal complex and labour-intensive techniques used by high fashion. Various personal items sit aside rare handmade invitations, crafted prototypes and toiles that made it into production and select examples are shown alongside a wall of photographs of her own vast shoe collection.

Showcasing these pieces reveals that an archive can be as much about preserving objects for posterity but as a resource to inform future image-makers as they reinterpret ideas from the not-so-distant past.
