Google Project Wing

By on Sep 2, 2014

From Google X comes Project Wing, an autonomous drone delivery service that recently went through some testing in Queensland, Australia. The project has been in the works for nearly two years, with self-flying vehicles now ready to complete specific delivery tasks. During the test flights in Australia, they were able to deliver a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and other small goods to farmers to the other side of town. Google X is in the process of exploring different methods to develop the technology to make a safe and efficient delivery system a real possibility. Though even with two years invested, it could be a few more until the technology can be used as a public...

Suitsupply Autumn/Winter 2014 Advertising Campaign

By on Sep 1, 2014

Suitsupply kicks off the Fall/Winter 2014 season with a new campaign celebrating individuality. Portraying a sharply dressed individual juxtaposed against backdrops of all kinds of beautiful uniformity, it is a depiction of Suitsupply’s manifesto ‘don’t fit in, but get your own perfect fit’. The quintessence of the radical, the Fall/Winter 2014 collection breaks away from norms and conventions. “We’ve taken cues from the rebels, loners and outcasts of style & history to create a collection that’s distinctive and nonconformist.” says CEO & founder Fokke de Jong. The result is an experimental narrative of bold and exceptional personality. Through the lens of classic Italian tailoring, the collection is infused with contemporary trimmings. The emphasis is on luxurious fabrics defined by exquisite craftsmanship – such as cashmere and baby alpaca blends – and a color palette that...

Isysia & PUMA // An Artistic View On Fashion

By on Aug 28, 2014

AJANAKU invites upcoming artists to share their view on fashion. Not in words, but through their artistry. By incorporating a fashion product in their work, each item is approached as a piece of art. This time we asked the talented illustrator Isysia from Belgium to share her vision on the iconic shoe PUMA ‘States’. PUMA ‘States’, 1980 Back in the 80’s, the PUMA Suede became the IT shoe in the hip-hop scene on the streets of New York City. A timeless classic and an integral part of sneaker history, the style was embraced by many sub-cultures and called by many names: the ‘Suede’, the ‘Clyde’, and PUMA ‘Joints’ to name a few – but it was the UK scene that adopted this style and made it their own, aptly re-naming it the PUMA ‘States’, after its birthplace. Initially, the shoe was not sold in Britain and was hard to find: but the legendary status amongst the NYC...
