Steve Kraitt is a photographer and according to him a good photograph is like a good joke : if you had to explain it, it just isn’t that good. Respecting this principle, Steve Kraitt gives us his last photoshoot entitled “Designer Drugs” without further explanation. In these photos, starred the model (especially her lips) Echo Nittolitto. So, Designer Drugs show a contrast between the white teeth and the colored lips of Echo Nittolitto, a variety of pills and tablets stamped the biggest luxury brand : Chanel, Prada, Gucci, YSL, Dior… The artist may be trying to expose the addiction of some people to luxury brands and what they represent, the desire for recognition and a higher social status.

New Prada Phone By LG 3.0 For 2012.

LG and fashion label Prada are collaborating for the third time to release the first LG Prada smartphone, the Prada phone by LG 3.0.  The first LG Prada, also known as LG KE850, was the world’s first mobile phone to use a touchscreen display.  The teams behind the design and construction have offered a sneak peek into the handset that will be on offer next fall via an image released by the company.  Neither of the two concerned companies has revealed any information on the upcoming LG Prada phone.  Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said, “Our working relationship with PRADA is unique in its longevity and success, something no other phone company and luxury brand have been able to replicate.”  Designer labels attached to phones is not a novelty these days considering the Hugo Boss Samsung Galaxy Ace or the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 devices.

The Devil Wears Prada… The Virgin Mary Wears Louis.

The devil may well wear Prada, but at a biennial exhibition of sacred art in Italy, a statue of the Virgin Mary is donning Louis Vuitton.  The veil traditionally covering the Virgin’s head bears the French luxury brand’s trademark “LV” logo in golden letters.  Francesco De Molfetta, 31, said he created the work to “denounce a society based on the cult of appearance through the use of a brand that represents the search for ephemeral happiness.  This new way of interpreting sacred art is along the lines of the famous work presented (in 1999 in Venice by Maurizio) Cattelan that showed a wax icon depicting Pope John Paul II being crushed by a meteor,” the curator of the biennial Giuseppe Bacci told Il Centro.  “It is a way to hit the visitors’ unconscious,” he added.  The biennial is held at Isola del Gran Sasso in the central region of Abruzzo.  Milan native De Molfetta’s works have been on show in Tokyo, at the T20 contemporary art gallery of Murcia Spain and at the museum of Besancon in France.
