Talking about the chicken or rooster, you probably won’t connect them with the word beautiful. Based on their living condition, you might not even think they are clean and neat. However, the unusual photos from photographe Matteo might change your impression. This crazy chicken photography show started when Matteo decided to have a Concincina as a pet for my studio garden in Milan. Then in an aviary exhibition, he found the hen he want and also started journey of taking photo for chicken. Work with his friend and work partner Moreno, they started to take pictures of literally hundreds of chickens and roosters. Eventually, we ended up with enough material that they can publish a book about that. Hence, they launched a Kickstarter campaign to sell their book about the sexiest and most beautiful chickens on the planet.
Shoe is one of the most important accessory for woman and sometimes you just can’t believe someone will spend that much money and time on collecting shoes. Sculpted shoes are among the top fashion trend and we have featured quite a lot of them. However, no matter how bizarre the shoes look like, most of them are still wearable, even though they might not be comfortable. While the shoe sculptures shown in this post by Costa Magarakis – a Tel Aviv-based artist, is quite different. They are literally sculptures and shoes are just the base objects of his works. At the hands of the artist, simulated footwear becomes animal body, wagon, seesaw maritime vessel or even otherworldly creatures. His work is described as existing within a “gothic wonderland illuminating the gray area between truth and lies.”
Embroidery is the craft of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn. To increase its richness, it can also incorporate other materials such as pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Russian textile designer Katerina Marchenko uses that kind of technical to create mesmerizing floating illusions out of the hand-stitching embroidery designs. On these net-like tulle fabric, you can see colorful insects flutter, fish jump out of the water and birds soar through the air. Once the artist’s ethereal designs are complete, she releases her thread animals from the embroidery hoop and incorporates her work into her own handmade garments.

Using seasonal leaves, blooms, and petals, Montreal-based fashion designer and creative Raku Inoue created some brilliantly colored moths and butterflies in his continuing “Natura Insects” series. Following the art of Ikebana – the Japanese art of floral arrangement, Inoue is taught to respect the nature he works with and only use what is most abundant, rather than focusing on what might look most attractive. Hence, all his working material is gathered from ground after a rain and big wind instead of being picked from trees or stem.
You can see more arrangements from his continuing series on Instagram.
