Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader

New York City duo Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader have made a name for themselves due to their graphic and often bizarre fashion editorials, which typically employ .gif animation and reside exclusively online.

“We make work for screens,” Reed + Rader explain.
“Using movement with animation is just the beginning of exploiting the strengths inherent in using a digital screen as a medium. Animated and motion work is most exciting for us because it is fresh and pushes up against boundaries of what is expected and possible in the venue of editorial fashion.“Most importantly,” they add, “it allows us to continue exploring our love affair with technology, the internet, video games, and pushing towards the future.” 
Today, we are excited to bring you an Reed + Rader preview editorial for the upcoming Fall Winter 2011 season.


Melissa is known as one of the world's most renowned manufacturer of jelly shoes that has been around for more than three decades. It has partnered with respected designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karim Rashid, and Zaha Hadid.

The release comes in two models, the Oxford and Moccasin, both worked in different color options and the plastic and flaked version. Very lightweight and wearable in any season, they follow the prescription of positive balance of Melissa in the footwear market women.

Communication Prosthesis ➔ Sascha Nordmeyer

Nike Sportswear F/W 2011 → HYPERFUSE

Nike Sportswear goes beyond itself with the Hyperfuse. 
Superior design is rooted in one belief – form follows function. With performance functionality at the core of product design, Nike has evolved the fundamental form of footwear since the Moon shoe debuted in 1972. What began as a traditional process of hand-sewn running shoes has evolved into an automated, heat pressurized system that allows for the most efficient use of modern materials.

Hyperfuse creates a durable composite material composed of three layers; one for stability, one for breathability and the third for durability. All three layers are fused together using heat and pressure to create a level of precision unattainable via traditional cut-and-sew methods. The unibody design results in lightweight, breathable footwear and minimizes seams that can wear on an athlete’s foot. The process had also created a new look, one that “opened up” the overlays of the shoe to see through it.

This new sport aesthetic is merged with iconic silhouettes from Nike’s past in the Air Force One, Air Max One, Dunk Hi and Air Max 90. It turns out Hyperfuse also had some unintended results when designers found they could push the limits of both color and finishes with the new technology. 

The Fall 11 Nike Sportswear collection takes full advantage with hits of neon green, solar red and blue glow, complimented by shades of grey and silver and blasts of reflective detailing.

ANKARA DREAM EP (Trouble & Bass)

It seems like every time summer rolls around, Zombies For Money (Dj Manaia & Klipar) come through with a batch of amazing new T&B anthems for us. This superstar duo hit it big for Trouble & Bass in summer 2010 with the genre-shattering one-two punch of "Kolkata" and "Sururumba," a follow-up to their massive first EP, which included the best-selling club smashers "Numbra One," "Bhangra Dance," and "Sacanagem." If you've been paying any attention to the global tropical bass movement, then we're sure you're already familiar with ZFM's Manaia and Klipar, from their original tracks plus remixes for the likes of Drop The Lime, Torro Torro and Steve Starks, Slap in the Bass, Twin Turbo, and Kry Wolf. Often copied, never duplicated, these two wildmen pump out the best tunes in any genre you subscribe to.

Just in time for your next sweaty peak-time set or pool party vibe session, Zombies For Money now unravel two brand new originals showing they have truly cracked the formula for dancefloor devastation. Continuing their ride around the globe, the Turkish-themed "Ankara Dream" is a melodic, sinuous ride magic carpet ride of tweaked bleeps and funky drums with an epic breakdown that makes all the girls clap their hands and wind their hips... and speaking of wild rides, just wait 'til you see the music video! ZFM invites everyone to dance with them on "Baila Comigo," an infectious slice of island fun with bouncy marimbas and wicked percussive twists--it's pretty impossible not to jump to this one. This is an incredible follow-up to the catalog, and look out for more big tropical fun from ZFM coming real soon!

SKRILLEX ➔ 21.07.2011 LISBON

“I’ve been deep into electronic music my entire life. The first records I ever owned were ‘Fat of Land’ by the Prodigy and ‘Come To Daddy’ by Aphex Twin,” raves Sonny Moore, better known as emerging electronic visionary SKRILLEX. 
“Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails were also early influences. I’ve been dabbling in making electronic tracks on programs like Fruity Loops since I was 14 years old.”

SKRILLEX is part of a new generation of artists that refuse to be restricted by preconceived notions or outside expectations. “Genre has never been important to me,” he insists. “I’ve never thought about music that way.”Describing his current sound as “a mix of dubstep, electro and glitch all thrown together,” SKRILLEX release “SCARY MONSTERS AND NICE SPRITES” reflects all of the above and beyond.

Tomorrow Mad SubCulture will give away one ticket to this party, pay attention to Mad Subculture Facebook page to get it!

Santacruz Herrera ➔ Decorative potholes

Artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera has transformed the streets of paris through her visual interventionusing braided strips of colourful fabric. Seeing the many cracks and potholes of the city asthe 'canvas' of her project, the site-specific pieces are a playful addition to the grey urban setting.long lengths of dyed fabrics are braided and then coiled into the shallow breaks in the street.

Often made up of a combination of bright colours, the resulting effect creates a graphic andvisually-arresting contrast to the city's palette.
