JONATHAN ANDERSON Fashion designer The Northern Irish golden boy of fashion is on a roll, both with his ‘unpredictable’ eponymous label and as Loewe’s creative director. For our Subscribers Since… 1996 shoot (page 154), we peeped inside his Paris office to record his Wallpaper* collection. The designer, who recently collaborated with artists Gilbert & George on a JW Anderson capsule collection, will soon be busy preparing for the April opening of a new Loewe flagship store in London. EVA HAGBERG FISHER Writer Seventeen years after their last conversation, the Brooklyn-based writer Hagberg Fisher was pleased to catch up with architect Liz Diller, co-founder of New York practice Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The pair talked everything from correspondence theory to nylon and Prada, for whom Diller has created a pair of multifunctional bags-cumgarments (page 114). Hagberg…

Welcome to our March issue, where we take you on an exciting Wallpaper* journey through the world of fashion. Prada has reinforced its position at the forefront of fashion and architecture by collaborating with Kazuyo Sejima, Cini Boeri and Liz Diller, arguably the three most influential female architects working today. We invited Diller to model her very own metamorphic wearable luggage. Elsewhere we visit Chanel’s métiers d’art workshops, hold up Dior’s intricate couture-like take on menswear, and go for a digital detox with Apple and Hermès in the Yakushima forest in Japan. Albrecht Dürer-inspired pleats and drapes feature in our cover story by Brigitte Niedermair and Isabelle Kountoure. Working with a 4x5 large-format camera, Niedermair is a master of creating iconic images, soon to be celebrated at the Venice Biennale in May. We also…

scrunch time

Customisation is key this season, and Issey Miyake has put a unique twist on the trend with a womenswear collection, the shape of which can be moulded at will. The collection, which includes undulating dresses and sculptural sun hats, is formed from ‘Dough Dough’ fabric, conceived by creative director Yoshiyuki Miyamae, who was inspired by the process of kneading bread. We’ll be getting into shape this spring, twisting and crumpling these pieces into a range of new silhouettes. isseymiyake.com FOR STOCKISTS THROUGHOUT, SEE PAGE 216…

into the fold

Folded metal is having its moment in the sun. Designers Kim Colin and Sam Hecht, founders of Industrial Facility, have collaborated with new brand Fucina on a furniture collection featuring thin, flat panels arranged in graphic compositions. Applying the technique to smaller objects, Swiss designer Laetitia de Allegri used discreet folded elements throughout her ‘Secant’ collection of containers for London’s Ace Hotel, while Josep Vila Capdevila’s ‘Trapped’ mirror for Aparentment serves both as a decorative and a functional object. Originally designed for an exhibition exploring joints, Leon Ransmeier’s chair offers a softer approach to the fold, with multiple curves intersecting to create the sleek seat, combining aluminium and carbon fibre in its composition. It’s a design device that delivers clean lines and maximum impact.…

The fashion for aromatising your own alcohol can be credited to two prevailing trends. The one that wants none of your fake flavours, chemical contaminations or superfluous sweetenings, and therefore insists all enhancement processes be done in the home; and the one that has us imbuing drinks with the flavour heft of a five-course meal. To accommodate the trend, the domestic design arena is gaining a new product. Kicked off by Martin Kastner of Crucial Design, who designed his ‘Porthole’ vessel for Chicago’s The Aviary bar, alcohol infusers are proliferating, including the ‘Alkemista’ by Californian brand Ethan + Ashe and the spinning ‘Incanter’ carafe by Sempli. Whether it’s to macerate some moringa or permeate your pickme-up with parmesan or meadow hay, we now have increasingly stylish ways to transform our…

big league

Bottega Veneta’s new creative director Daniel Lee has been thinking big. The former director of ready-to-wear design at Celine, under Phoebe Philo, has designed two bags for the Italian brand, and our favourite comes in XL proportions. Lee drew from Bottega Veneta’s renowned skill for intrecciato technique, which sees strips of leather woven into accessories, like its signature ‘Cabat’ tote. It takes two days by hand to entwine the leather into this hyperbolic take on the style, proof that time does indeed work wonders. bottegaveneta.com…
