Hyenas, shoes and fashion week


The Hyena & other men by Pieter Hugo

En el 2005 de Pieter Hugo documento en fotografias la vida de una familia en Nigeria, quienes adoptaron y domesticaron hienas, babuinos y serpientes, y publico estas poco convencionales imágenes bajo el nombre de "The Hyena & other men". Aquí les comparto algunas de las imágenes de este libro.
During 2005, Pieter Hugo, documented through pictures the life of a family in Nigeria. What makes this family unique is that they keep as pets hyenas, baboons and snakes. They don't only keep them near themselves, but they were actually capable of taming them. This images form an interesting book named "The Hyena & other men", so I decided to share with you some of this images with you.




Del otro lado del mundo el  diseñador Julian Louie, encontro en este material, la inspiracion para su coleccion Primavera-Verano 2011, presentada en la Semana de la Moda de Nueva York.
Louie explico que su coleccion esta conformada por piezas individuales, a diferencia de looks pre-construidos.
Sus sencillos pero no menos interesantes diseños, fueron combinados con unos super llamativos zapatos estilo "wedge"  manufacturados y distribuidos por Aldo., fueron combinados con unos super llamativos zapatos estilo "wedge"  manufacturados y distribuidos por  la marca canadiense Aldo.

Designer Julian Louie found on this book the right inspiration to create his 2011 Spring- Summer collection, presented during New York"s  Fashion Week.
Louie said that this collection was formed by "individual" pieces and not the usual "looks" proposed by fellow designers. His garments keep simple lines and color, and were presented in contrast with very flashy and tribal- motif wedges, manufactured and distributed by canadian brand Aldo.

Este post es una pequeña, probadita de lo que es el ciclo de la moda, el proceso creativo puro, antes de cualquier etiqueta y frivolidad.
Quien se iba a imaginar que la carita de ternura y la mirada valiente de Mummy Ahmadu (la  pequeña retratada por Pieter Hugo, sosteniendo una serpiente y jugando con hienas), ayudaria a que miles de mujeres se decidieran por comprar un par de zapatos. Les aseguro que ni ella, ni los hombres de esta foto lo imaginaron.

This entry is a little taste of the enormous and fascinating Fashion Cycle, that pure creative process before all tags and frivolity.
Who would have guessed that such a tender face and brave gaze on Mummy Ahmadu's face - the little girl captured by Pieter Hugo's lens, holding a huge snake and playing with hyenas- would contribute shaping what shoes thousands of ladies will be adding to their weardrobes.
I can bet that neither her, or the other men in this picture, saw it coming.
