Welcome to DSCENE #16, a celebration of the art of fashion and the relationship between fashion and design. These elements have always been at the heart of DSCENE since our magazine was a simple blogger page launched in April, 15 years ago. Over the next decade and a half, DSCENE contributors have included an astonishing number of international creatives who are starting to shape the fashion and design industries. As we started to think about new problems, we reflected on how the digital world around us has been further strengthened over the past few years by epidemics and lockdowns. In the era of constant digital communication, sometimes it helps to pause and choose simpler pleasures. So our contributors and featured stars are true navigators of the times we live in.

Certainly DSCENE 16 tends to let us dream. However, it was a dream that allowed the artists and creators we are paying attention to today to look into the future of the design, fashion and art industries. It’s purely coincidental, but this issue is also a duo’s story. A photography and design duo formed much of DSCENE 16. First, we return to Los Angeles contributors Mark Williams and Sara Hirakawa to present a stunning portfolio of new season collections that form the captured cover story. This striking piece from the new collection comes to life thanks to Ashley Smith, a prominent cover star for this DSCENE. We also took the time to think about the world we live in from the glorious and imaginative portfolio of our favorite photography duo, Gus & Lo. In a series of videos and photos, they are once again stunned by sci-fi images.

The rapid digitization of our lives via TikTok, Instagram and Snapchat continues to reshape our perception of the world. So, what we thought about the new issue was to affect not only designers, but also artists, but also those who appreciate and buy their work. What does the endless duplication and instant mirroring of images mean for the creative industry? Can NFTs stop the freedom we are accustomed to on the Internet? Is it a sign of democratization or a sign of regulation? Will the global audience continue to engage in a meta world where these NFTs can push what they have and don’t have? True creativity finds new meaning in this gigantic vortex, and DRESSX founders Daria Shapovalova and Natalia Modenova show how fashion can thrive in the meta world. I tend to be optimistic about the NFT industry, but I understand why even young designers emphasize the physical skills of their work. For many innovative young designers, their image influences us in the digital world, but their originality is a true expression of creativity in the real world. This is the work of two design duos lucky enough to be talking about this time around. Cosima Gradient and Christa Bösch, the Swiss girls who succeeded OTTOLINGER, Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, the men who founded the equally refreshing COPERNI.

However, the story of the digital world being mixed with reality is also the story of Anna Yang, the creator of ANИAKIKI. A brand that has contributed to spreading its name and creativity throughout the digital realm by attending traditional events like Milan Fashion Week. Anna speaks with our fashion director, Katarina Djoric, on the path from her ideas to a living, breathing fashion brand. Another spotlight on the matter is Hong Kong-based artist Wong Ping, who brilliantly combines traditional forms such as sculpture with his dominance over graphic design in his digital world. His work often tells the story of our time in a simple yet effective way.

Elsewhere in the arc, contributor Slavica Pesic beautifully takes us into the world of groundbreaking artist Sejla Kameric. We also explore another form of art that we spoke with editor Igor Cvoro in a quietly public interview with actor Giancarlo Commare, who was spotlighted in front of the camera. Every magazine that has been under its belt over the years, like DSCENE, relies on a lively dialogue between its contributors and feature creatives. And at DSCENE, that conversation can encompass not only art and design, but also intelligence and emotion. These conversations, which often lead to collaboration, allow you to explore the external journeys created by contributing photographers, stylists, and writers.

Finally, in an age of endless bombardment of information and images turning to white noise, many of us are longing for something else. We hope you find some inspiring treasures in this DSCENE issue.
