Dear iDEALS, as you may know already, Rick Owens is one of the designers that have their own place in my heart. For the forthcoming issue of Isterografo, Owens sent me a wide selection or rare and unseen material featuring the spaces he works in, his studio, the showroom, his furniture, backstage photographs both from his men's and women's presentation's as well as abstract images taken before, during and after his shows.
I feel truly honored to have him in Isterografo's 8th issue, since he was one of the first pioneers I presented in the magazine almost 6 years back..
All images are under RICK OWENS copyright, so better keep yourself out of trouble.

Dear iDEALS, my eyes caught 34-year-old Vivetta Pondi's work today. She stated off back in 2000 working for Roberto Cavalli in Florence, as his assistant for the womenswear and menswear. Four years later she got hired by Daniele Alessandrini for her womenswear collections. What is really interesting about "Vivi" is also her artistic background and her animation films with Virgilio Villores.
She uses the collages technique and painting while here work gets exhibited in 2008 at the Biagiotti art Galler in Florence, under the tittle "CRACK". Vivetta was launched in 2008 giving Vivi the first prize award at the Parisian Who's Next competition. Peaches Geldof was the A/W 2010 testimonial for Vivetta as one of her favorite brands...
Dear iDEALS,Carlo Mollino (1905-1973) was an architect, designer, photographer and writer, not to mention a race-car driver and a pilot. His buildings include the Royal Theatre in Turin, and his furniture, like his photography, is ever more valuable. In 2005, a Mollino table sold for $3.8 million, setting a world record for twentieth-century decorative art.
