In this volume, we explore the theme of, "Perspectives." Through vocation, art, and architecture, we connected with people from around the world to hear how varying perspectives shape the world we live in. We start in North America where we deep-dive into social perspectives with photographer Alex MacLean and end in Ukraine where we discover a new destination from the architectural era of Soviet Modernism. It's these stories and those in-between that allow us to discover the development of viewpoints from one individual to the next.
As we globalize, we either move closer together or delve deeper into our handheld flat screen of choice. These social dynamics call for a focus on perspectives. For Autumn & Winter 2018, Rains is inspired by the viewpoint of others; be it inwards or outwards, or in the matter of beliefs. With this in mind, the AW18 collection has been designed with an empathetic approach to the perspective of others, as well as the individual.
Danish architects, Sine Lindholm and Mads-Ulrik Husum, have created The Growroom – a spherical pavilion for people to produce food locally in urban environments.
