Portrait of Fashion Designer hamansutra

hamansutra is taken in for questioning and his evidence is taken down, videographed in a video conference. Exploring the truth and exploring decisions about visions of the future. How can we speak so lightly of the future? Under the original Persian calendar we operate in a different age. We discuss what life will be like in thousand years.

Hamansutra’s NYC Radio Show “love.dreams.and.hiphop” is back.
“because his records start to smoke and then his turntables glow…“

Q & A

What are your thoughts on hiphop culture today?
Well, basically hiphop has been over the hill since around 2000.
That was the time when I started buying a whole lot fewer records – and I’m a passionate vinyl collector.

MP3s came along, record contracts for artists got a whole lot tougher, they practically signed away their lives for a contract and were forced to sample and cover hits. Rappers like MELLE MEL, RAKIM, KRS ONE and WHODINI did the same but they managed to be artists without always focusing on business. These old-skoolers are really suffering today because they don’t get any media attention any more. Hiphop today is kept alive by people like COMMON, PETE ROCK and MOS DEF.

Not “HIP POP” bullshit like Wale, Rick Ross, Waka Flocka Flame, Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Tyga and Gucci Mayne…insane.

ABOUT I
hamansutra’s NYC Radio Show brings you a mix of Hiphop, Rock, Disco, Electro and Soul with rare interviews and remastered songs selected from my collection of videos and music, ready for your iPods.

CMYK BY HAMANSUTRA IN COLLABORATION WITH PHILIP HANSKE

120930_cmykbyhamansutra_philip_hanske_AD_web

Vision of the Future II – People ask, Is he man or machine ?

hamansutra’s handmade CMYK shoes have arrived at Vision of the Future II: now custom orthopedic insoles can be added for supreme comfort.

hamansutra’s partner in this new venture is Philip Hanske, specialist in the production of orthopedic insoles.

All insole manufacture takes place on-site at our shop in the heart of Munich, created with love from Germany.

The perfect match between fashion and foot biomechanics.
Go bionic!

METHOD
We focus on manufacturing orthopedic insoles based on a technique developed and successfully used in the Netherlands for many years.

The insoles are individually handcrafted for you using several layers of high quality materials. Without using any prefabricated components or moulds, this special technique allows us to create ultra thin insoles which will fit in almost any shoe.

The therapeutic orthopaedic insole will positively and effectively change the foot’s biomechanics by activating the muscles, relieving a whole range of foot, posture and gait problems.

A thorough biomechanical examination is carried out to assess body alignment.

After about 6 months of wearing your insoles the first measurable changes can be seen in the foot and gait.

MEMORY OF CARI ZALLONI . born 1937 died 2012 . REST IN LOVE PEACE AND SOUL

CAZAL . eyewear . face . a design symbiosis

Friend, Partner, Mentor, Visionary and Idol. “The world was not ready for the mind of Cari Zalloni”. As a community of Cazal collectors and wearers, we spent years contacting the CAZAL company, trying to get them to issue your Vintage series – a pioneering idea in the late 1990s. We were laughed at, ignored, not taken seriously, while your eyewear landed with the wrong people – the wrong models, the wrong tasteless ad agencies…

Quote from Cari Zalloni’s Foreword
“hiding eyes behind dark glasses is a way of saying “look at me,” expressing the precise opposite of the action, and successful sun eyewear has a function which extends far beyond mere eye protection. for me, the eyewear market in the USA is and always has been my special market.”

As the saying goes, the prophet is without honor in his own country. Wake up, Germany! I’m happy that I could add some honor by staging a homage to you in New York City, with a foreword written by you that I waited years to get. Not an easy undertaking, but a very valuable one. We miss you, dear Cari. We had such plans. But we’ll continue to honor your work.

Cari Zalloni was an eyewear designer of outstanding reputation. His Cazal sunglasses – a name derived by combining the first syllables of his first and last names – are characterized by aggressive styling, unique detailing and unparalleled craftsmanship and express his uncompromising design attitude.

He says, “A designer eyewear line that pleases everyone is unlikely to inspire. Good design must be thought-provoking.”

Cazal eyewear
Today the eyewear and sun eyewear designed by Cari Zalloni is a success story spanning 40 years and acclaimed all over the world Cazal eyewear is associated with old school hiphop, graffiti, breakdance, DJs, record collectors and a host of other personalities like EGYPTIAN LOVER, MICHAEL JACKSON, RUN DMC, MELANIE GRIFFITH, RODNEY O & JOE COOLEY, ELVIS PRESLEY, BARRY NEWMAN, STEVIE WONDER, FAT BOYS, MIKE TYSON, GWEN STEFANI and JAY Z.
