Bright XXIV – Berlin’s Arena

Arena, Berlin
From 17 January 2017 to 19 January 2017

Bright is an original fashion trade event, which conveys a snapshot of modern lifestyle within an atmosphere relevant to its target groups. Since fashion is in constant motion, its predominant influences such as art, music and sports are therefore decisive regarding the resulting trends and how they get perceived – whereat credibility always has and will be the essential element to it.

Back at Berlin’s Arena, this summer’s 23rd edition of Bright was all about content – and about the culture surrounding our brands and exhibitors. The fact that, apart from Streetwear, skateboarding is and remains an important part of the Bright universe was impossible to miss this time around – simply because we took it all over town. Whereas Volcom’s massive, three-day “Three Streets To Berlin” contest took world-class riders from legendary spots such as Nationalgalerie to tourist venues, the week began with the official opening of the all-new concrete DSS obstacles just around the corner from our show. 24 hours later, the official Bright opening was another joint event with DC, who once again turned a club into a proper skate venue. And finally, there were plenty more sessions and things like a fun little jump ramp contest to round things off – turning Berlin once again into a temporary mecca that attracted some of the best international skaters.

Whereas the visitors of Bright XXIII got to experience a carefully RECAP handpicked portfolio of more than 250 brands – featuring new exhibitors such as Volcom, New Balance Numeric, Nikita, Defend Paris, and PAX, plus some of the most current core companies such as Polar, DQM, and Quasi –, the latest edition of Bright once again boasted a huge selection of side events that ranged from art shows and screenings to music and, last but not least, a series of talks hosted by Drago from Italy.

REN HANG, PHOTOGRAPHY

Art | October 27, 2020

Flesh, corpses, souls and bland flashlights, all composite into seconds or milliseconds of lights and shadows, projecting onto the film that never knows how to lie. Focus gathering and the shutter releasing, connecting his unpretentious, rebellious, wild and free perspectives towards the naked human body. The images look so natural, yet fun and unexpected. One soul after another all blossom like a newborn baby, urging to crawl out of his mother's womb, dying to be redefined. In this era that we live in, being censored by the Chinese government has almost become a stamp of approval for contemporary artists. Ren Hang, a young man with a mature look and tanned skin, hair as short as a Chinese soldiers', always carrying an irresistibly cute and innocent smile on his cheeks. He is, perhaps, the sole artist and photographer with the most edgy outlook towards the naked human body. Read more

INTERVIEW: EDUARDO MORENO

Interviews | October 17, 2020

"Maybe the world changed me more than how I tried to change it… ecumenic failure." E. M. Since very short age, exposed with intensity to every form of art and diverse disciplines, dancer Eduardo Moreno rediscovers, after ten years as an expert on environment and social projects, abstraction as a new way to express artistically in all confirmed levels.
