Edible Selby Book Sneak Peak

Todd Selby have been portraying creative people and their lifestyle by some beautiful photography work on The Selby. He is careful with details focusing unusually interesting musicians, artists, designers, and actors in their places. After Todd’s first book, The Selby is In Your Place, he launches  Edible Selby.

Todd recently launched Edible Selby, in collaboration with NYTimes T Magazine in which he photographs the most creative and interesting people in food around the world.



Photographer Todd Selby is back, this time focusing his lens on the kitchens, gardens, homes, and restaurants of more than 40 of the most creative and dynamic figures working in the culinary world today. He takes us behind the scenes with Noma chef René Redzepi in Copenhagen; to Tokyo to have a slice with pizza maker Susumu Kakinuma; and up a hilltop to dine at an inn without an innkeeper in Valdobbiadene. Each profile is accompanied by watercolor illustrations and a handwritten questionnaire, which includes a signature recipe. Reveling in the pleasures of a taco at the beach, foraging for wild herbs, and the art of the perfectly cured olive, Selby captures the food we love to eat and the people who passionately grow, cook, pour, and serve these incredible edibles every day. Plus it comes with magnets for your fridge.

Food & Fashion

Food and fashion may seem like unlikely bedfellows but a new generation of designers are trading in their cutting tables for stovetops. Welcome to the intersection of haute couture and haute cuisine, part of a brave new world where clothing can be made without cloth and textiles are, quite literally, good enough to eat.



The brainchild of German designer Anke DomaskeQmilk is the trademarked name for a form of milk fiber, a silky textile derived from an odorless protein found in mammalian milk. Domaske extracts casein only from soured “secondary milk” that’s no longer for human consumption and headed for disposable. Unlike comparable milk-based fibers, Qmilk makes efficient use of water (2 liters for every kilogram of fabric), requires no harmful chemicals, and leaves behind zero waste.

For New Zealand designer Samantha Murray, turning liquid into clothing wasn’t just an audacious experiment, it was also an exercise in rethinking garment construction. The recent graduate, who developed her “Sweet Suspension” collection during her final year at Massey University, combined the shapes of classical sculpture with the “texture of gummy lollies” to create five, fruit-scented forms. “For me, this collection was entirely about the process: pushing boundaries, creating previously impossible shapes, and exploring the potential of the idea,” she tells Ecouterre.



Clothing as dessert? Get any tawdry ideas out of your head, dear reader; this concept is anything but. Eric Meursing and Marjolein Wintjes, owners of De Culinaire Werkplaats, a design-studio-cum-restaurant in Amsterdam, built their reputation on edible pastry wrappers made from dehydrated fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Described as a “novel eating initiative and experience,” De Culinaire Werkplaats draws inspiration from seemingly unrelated sources, from architecture to emotions. “Taste the Unwearables,” a series of fabrics made from vegetables, fruits, and herbs, is part call to eat more greens, part commentary on the ephemeral nature of fashion.

Il packaging dell’acqua San Pellegrino firmato Missoni

Il packaging  dell'acqua San Pellegrino firmato Missoni

Ha cominciato l’acqua francese Evian qualche anno fa, prima con la versione extra lusso firmata Christian Lacroix, poi con quelle di Jean-Paul Gaultier e di Paul Smith, l’ha seguita la Coca-Cola con le edizioni speciali di Karl Lagerfeld, di Roberto Cavalli o di Manolo Blahnik.

L’ultima collaborazione in ordine di tempo tra stilisti e marchi di bibite, è il connubio tutto italiano tra San Pellegrino e Missoni che rivede il packaging di una delle acque più bevute nel nostro paese. Più che in altre occasioni la rielaborazione è rispettosa del brand, il logo e i colori non sono stati alterati, pur essendo l’elegante tocco della maison chiaramente distinguibile.

La confezione in edizione limitata è stata concepita all’interno del progetto di Missoni Italian Talents che ha come scopo la promozione del Made in Italy e verrà distribuita solo in un numero selezionato di ristoranti per un periodo di tre mesi.

‘Cake’ Fashion Video [food art]

April 20, 2010, 2:13 pm   0 Comments


Still via today and tomorrow

Cake is a fashion video — a sort of long form commercial, but artier — directed by Stephen Blaise for Fly 16×9. The 20 minute long videos (which are cut from a 4 hour and 18 minute installation piece) feature models wearing designer clothing meticulously devouring entire cakes. The videos comment on design, consumption and body image in the context of major designers: Miu Miu (mocha cake with cherry blossoms), AF Vandervorst (chocolate mocha dome), Prada (mirror caramel cake & chocolate torte with chantilly cream), Zero Maria Cornejo (orange and white chocolate tiramisu), and Fendi (striped cake with chocolate roses). Click through to Fly 16×9 for the video (warning: autoplays). [via today and tomorrow]

Sculptures of paper food

Sculptures of paper food I engineered for Australian Women’s Health Magazine _ Aug 2009.

This job was a great challenge for me. I loved working with the bright block colours of the paper and I learnt a bit more about constructing paper volumes after finishing this project.

Chocolate was by far the most fiddly element to make, and I think the favs are baked beans and sardines, steak and cheese.

Madonna per la nuova campagna di Dolce&Gabbana

Lo sfondo è quello consueto: la classica Sicilia. Indaffarata con i lavori domestici troviamo una singolare Madonna.
Miss Ciccone è stata infatti immortalata nei panni di una mamma casalinga dall’obiettivo di Steven Klein per la nuova campagna di Dolce e Gabbana. Una donna come tante altre, lontana dalla Madonna sexy, regina del pop, che siamo abituati a vedere.

Madonna for Dolce&Gabbana new campaign

The background is familiar: the classic Sicily. Busy with the housework, we find an unusual Madonna.
In fact Miss Ciccone has been immortalized in the shoes of a housewife by Steven Klein for Dolce&Gabbana new campaign. A woman like many others, far from sexy Madonna, queen of pop, we’re used to seeing.
