Daily Dose: Quote of the Day
“I feel it’s too careless and unsustainable to create items just out of my own selfish desire. Designs have to have a reason for existing. And that is why I create.”
– Blog author, Luxirare
Luxirare is a weekly webzine dedicated to clothing and cuisine. At Luxirare, the typical notion of a seasonal fashion show or seasonal “menu” does not exist. Styles and recipes are presented as individual pieces that do not follow a strict theme but rather a flow of ideas. The Luxirare principle is to use the unique mobility of the internet to develop an enticing, unorthodox presentation. A fluidity of information is easily produced because content can be accessed from anywhere at any time. The grassroots feedback system allows and encourages anyone to provide instantaneous feedback. Ideas are presented 1 by 1 so that detailed images can magnify the process or item being presented; this allows for a more intimate interaction between the image and the audience. However, there is a commitment to motion. There are no starts, no stops, no resumption of any discontinued story; just a continual conversation between the creator and the audience. Instead of typical “collections” or batches of ideas which are grouped into “seasons”, the goal is to move towards a season-less, collection-less presentation, promoting a constant renewal of thought. The power of the internet to swallow so much into obsolescence is usually considered detrimental. The point here is to use the greatest invention of the 20th century, the internet and the obsolescence associated with it, as an advantage.
