Kurdish Dandies Start Iraq’s First Fashion Club

It’s not just about bringing fashion to Iraq. For these Kurdish peacocks it’s also about promoting a positive image of their homeland to the world. In early February 2016, a group of young men gathered in the ancient citadel at the heart of Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan Region. It was deep into the second winter of the Kurds’ war against the Islamic State and the region was mired in economic crisis. As a result, restoration work on the ancient UNESCO-listed site — said to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world — had ground to a halt, leaving the citadel with the air of an abandoned film set.

Against this backdrop, 22 of the city’s finest dressed men gathered. Like an ostentation of peacocks they preened and posed, showing off their finery and taking innumerable selfies. At this first meeting of sartorial minds it was decided: with jobs limited, few opportunities and precious little else going on, why not be the best damn dandies they could be? From this not so humble start, Mr. Erbil — Iraq’s first gentleman’s fashion club — was born.

カピバラたちが工場を抜き打ち視察?ゆっくりとした足取りでまったりと工場内を視察するというハプニング(ブラジル)

名称未設定-3


 今月半ば、ブラジルのある企業の工場に、総勢9匹ものカピバラ一家がアポなしで訪問、いきなり視察を始めるというハプニングがあったそうだ。

 いくら野生のカピバラが生息するブラジルとはいえ、工場にとっては前代未聞の出来事。

 これが抜き打ち視察ってやつ?

 とにかく人間側はびっくりしたのだが、カピバラ一家はまったく慌てる様子もなくゆったりと工場内を見て回っていたっぽい。

 そんなカピバラたちの様子がフェイスブックに投稿されていた。

Russian Paper Artist Reinterprets Baroque Wigs With A Modern Flair

Following a similar aesthetic style to the ornamental wigs of the baroque and rococo periods, paper artist Asya Kozina (previously featured) creates ornate headdresses that pay homage to one of the most outrageous luxuries and stylized trends in history.

The artist began experimenting with these paper creations in her initial paper, costume series published in 2015. With this second edition, the artist adds an additional artistic flare by integrating symbols of modern industrialization and advancement into the towering paper compositions.
