Anniversary Project: ALAIN MIKLI JAPON x przemek

przemek x Alain Mikli Japon 1
I would like to introduce one of my recent projects which I am very proud of – a collaboration with ALIAN MIKLI JAPON for their Anniversary Project, for which I did the main art direction.
It was an amazing journey to look into the history of such an iconic brand and do a proper research on it.
The checked pattern I have created is a direct reference to the characteristic pattern used by the brand for years.
All in the classic black and coral red colours in the shapes of optical illusion and deformations as a reminescence of magnifying glass or rain drop.
Based on the pattern I have created window displays for two anniversary boutiques in Minami-aoyama and Marunouchi
as well as there were issued a special limited edition of glasses – created here locally in Japan – especially on this occasion.
The project is also me coming back to my basis which is more design field, and a little bit less illustration this time.
The Anniversary Project will carry on at Minami-Aoyama and Marunouchi stores till the end of July. Please visit!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 with peace & love

test6-9According to Chinese Horoscope the year of the HORSE has just begun – on this occasion getting back to those moments when you truly feel in peace, content, loved and relaxed, full of inner “silence” but also full of creative energy just about to erupt, when you are complete and in order, back to happy childhood days, surrounded by nature and people you love, summer and the garden parties, sun, birds and nothing else – when you deep inside feel happy in the moment – wishing you to keep it alive every second of your life to make it even more real and last forever. Love Yourself even more in this Happy New Year 2014 – let it go and let it flow. Love. P.

By pure coincidence my last two projects are based on LIPS – and they are for two very special clients: first it was a neon design for SHISEIDO event with Dick Page, artistic director of Shiseido Makeup as a special guest,
and now for Christmas time – animated lips for CANON`s “White Kiss” TV CM featuring new EOS Kiss x7 in white – and it is my very first TV Commercial ever!!!

101TAIPEI 10th Anniversary

IMG_8080Happy Anniversary to 101TAIPEI 101 post-2

I would never expected how wonderful time I had had during my a very first visit to Taipei, and most of all to Taiwan!!! Just before I went there I had realized how little or rather almost at all I had known about the place. So basically everything – literally everything – was a big discovery for me, surprise and the new every single minute – and I truly loved so much – from all the places, foods, smells and most of all the amazing so-many-people I was so lucky to meet in such a short time. Overwhelmed. Amazed. In Love. Even I saw so little really.

The main reason I visited Taipei was the invitation to take part in celebration of 10th Anniversary of 101Taipei – the very taaaaaalllllll and quite distinctive landmark of the city. I was honored to be a part of Art Fashion Exhibition – as a one of artists invited for the event – for which I had created special piece inspired by 101Taipei, of course, which is donated for charity auction to support children`s medical check in small villages of Taiwan.  The online auction was finished on 6th Oct as well as all the art pieces were on display at the specially created for this event exhibition space made of recycling materials /very eco/ at the 101Shopping Mall 4th Floor – also till 6th Oct only.
All participating artists actually were connected to London fashion and art scene, one way or another, so for some of us it was unexpected reunion;
to name few: Hiro and KING from Tokyo or Tatty Divine, Kelly Kiwi, Natacha Marro or Mehui Liu from London. For myself I can say that I’ve known Hiro and Meihui for at least 10 years now.
Happy BIG ANNIVERSARY to 101TAIPEI and also big thank you to Jil Wu, Meihui Lui and Weni Chang – for made it all happened.
And what about Taipei and Taiwan – definitely I will be back and I hope very soon and for a bit longer.

All inquiries regarding potential projects in Asia /Taiwan, China, Hong Kong/  please contact my representative Jil Wu http://jilwu.com/, email: jilwu@jilwu.comIMG_8722with amazing my agent, Jil Wu – doing interviews just before the exhibition opened

for Stephen Jones and A-magazine he curated

Horoscope-Przmek-Sobocki-wholeAt this time around a year ago I was asked  by Stephen Jones, who doesn’t need any extra introduction I believe,to be a part of his new project – A magazine* /Antwerp/ he was about to curate. And it was just over a lunch we had together somewhere on the back of Shibuya. A year past and all just came true. A-magazine is finally OUT – also now available in Tokyo /Tower records, Parco e.g./ and apart my Horoscope pages with Stephen`s hats, of course, and his text it is featuring original sketches from house of Dior from 40s & 50s, illustration by John Galliano, Celia Birtwell`s quill nails, correspondence for Rei Kawakubo or Thierry Mugler, and other amazing contributors and invited guests as Nick Knight, Dita Von Teese, Zaha Hadid, Ron Arad, Hamish Bowles, Kim Jones, Marc Jacobs, Julie Verhoven and more and more and more…
All I just need to say is that I am really honoured /and lucky/ to know Stephen personally and to be part of this project!!! For all the “goodies” please check the nearest bookstore – the good one though.

*A Magazine Curated By  – is a fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue; previous curators including Jun Takashi /Undercover/, Maison Martin Margiela, Ricardo Tisci, Rodarte to name few.
