When I started CUAP I wanted to be noticed for my photography and here are a few
quotations that I have been noted.
For Autumn-Winter Collection 2011 CUAP has chosen the music by the elegant
French combo CONSUME.
They are releasing "Suprématisme" - a smoking one-shot single of anthemic rock
with a fragrance of modern art tracing new frontiers through epic indie-rock.
You can get your copy of the "Suprématisme" 7 inches limited edition by CONSUME
featuring a remix by Blackjoy RECORDER.
Exhibition in Hamburg
The exhibition of Close Up And Private at CCAA Gallery (more pictures here) in
Hamburg got a positive reaction. Read the posts from a few great blogs,
who attended the opening:
Greensleeves to a ground
Get to know... Sergei Sviatchenko of CUAP
Read the Swipelife feature by Paul Castillo on Sergei Sviatchenko beginnings,
his vision, and where he finds inspiration for CUAP.
This publication is the result of a unique visual collaboration between
Sergei Sviatchenko and Gant Rugger Denmark. Opened last year,
the Copenhagen store was quick to reach out to the city's stylish and
creatively influential men.
Top of their list was Sergei Sviatchenko. Not only is he one of the country's
most respected living artists and undoubtedly one of Denmark's best-dressed men,
but his world-famous online gallery Close Up and Private also celebrates the kind
of menswear Gant Denmark is built on - a wardrobe for the modern man inspired by
American Ivy and European classics.
Many consider Sviatchenko's work as a revolutionary approach to fashion
photography. It's a totally fresh and dynamic style inspired by his work as
an abstract painter and collage artist and also his infectious love of clothes.
It didn't take long before Gant Rugger Denmark and Sergei Sviatchenko
pooled together on this, their first collaborative project:
A–COLLABORATION GANT RUGGER X CLOSE UP AND PRIVATE
FALL/WINTER 11/12 COLLECTION
Originally dating as far back as 1914, GANT is synonymous with ivy league
and classic preppy style. GANT Rugger is the brand's younger label.
Lead by Stockholm-based designer Christopher Bastin since 2009,
GANT Rugger is a pure expression of the brands authentic American heritage.
With cropped blazers, fair isle sweaters, rugged chinos, washed denim,
ribbed cardigans, winter weight madras shirts, signature popover button-downs
and an array of outer-wear, GANT Rugger's winter collection 2011/12 provides
close up and private's Sergei Sviatchenko with a rich palette of texture,
colour and design with which to work.
