BE BRAVE: Special Olympics x Parsons

 

33-YEAR OLD SPECIAL OLYMPICS ATHLETE DANIEL FLETCHER IN DESIGN BY PARSONS SCHOOL OF DESIGN STUDENT WEIJING XIAO

“As designers in this over-consumption, over-production world, we are constantly thinking if what we’re doing is meaningful. What is my clothing contributing to the rest of the world? In this circumstance, I realized you can actually do something that moves people and makes people feel confident.”

— Weijing Xiao

In January of 2020, a new course was introduced into the Parsons School of Design curriculum in partnership with Special Olympics. It was initiated through a connection with Special Olympics board member and fashion model Natalia Vodianova, and offered students the opportunity to create designs for Special Olympics athletes. Taking a collaborative approach, students and athletes worked to conceptualize, design, and create figure skating uniforms. The mission was to amplify the voice of Special Olympics across the world of sport, fashion, and education, and generate new possibilities for inclusion and social justice.

Proving so successful in its first year, the course was offered again in January of 2021. For this semester, students were given the assignment to design both tennis and track & field uniforms for the athletes. Celebrated fashion photographer and Special Olympics Champion Ambassador, Nigel Barker, served as a mentor throughout the design process. Read More

Meow Mix: The Catsuit!

 

 

SERENA WILLIAMS AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2021

The 2021 tennis season is officially underway. The first Grand Slam tournament of the year, the Australian Open, is now in session and Serena Williams has come to play! Going for her record tying 24th Grand Slam title (with Margaret Court), she is making as big a statement with her Flo-Jo inspired, one-legged catsuit as she is with her powerful shots. But this is not the first time Serena has donned a catsuit for a major tournament. There was the controversial all black one she wore at the 2018 French Open that would have catsuits banned in the future at Roland Garros.

The catsuit has long been a symbol of female empowerment, strength, and sexuality that has a history in sports, music, and Hollywood. You don’t want to mess with a woman in a catsuit! Here is a look at some of the most iconic catsuits and the women who rocked them! Read More

 

Wave Prophecy Sorayama

 

 
Famed Japanese contemporary illustrator, Hajime Sorayama, has teamed up with Mizuno to transform its iconic WAVE PROPHECY sneaker into a work of art that is the WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA. Sorayama is best known for the erotic machinery of his Sexy Robot series and has added his signature highly stylized, slick and shiny layer to the futuristic evolution of this running shoe.

The most distinctive element of the WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA is the sole, already unique its design, which showcases the intersection of Mizuno’s technology with Sorayama’s creative vision. Sorayama wanted the sneaker to inspire “floating in the air” and the resulting design gives the impression it might actually lift off and fly.
 


 

This collaboration with Sorayama and Mizuno was not their first. The two teamed up previously on the design of prosthetic running blade called the KATANAΣ, also rendered in his shiny silver, and perhaps even more so embodying his Sexy Robots.

The WAVE PROPHECY SORAYAMA will be available for early release at 2G Tokyo and 2G Osaka on January 30, and at Dover Street Market Ginza and KITH Tokyo on February 6. The shoe is priced at ¥38,500 JPY (approximately $370 USD).
