I'll admit it right away.... the coat isn't exactly flattering to the body but I have this love for
costumes.I changed the color a bit...
(available in the U.K U.S.A and Australia at TOPSHOP)
The spoons are made by Ivan Kasner also part of this collective
He was looking for ways to let a product last for centuries or at least a lifetime
....hmmm how to explain this : if a forest gets buried under lava , the wood gets burned but at the same time preserved , it will not rot... it turns into a stony matter.
Ivan mimiced this process but it took him just a couple of weeks...
Love this journal by hachii
Remember this add I showed you back in February ...
Well...here's another one
Hit the pause button first...wait till it's loaded and then press play
if that doesn't work...here's the small version
Advertising Agency : Fallon London
Director : Nicolai Fuglsig
Art Director : Juan Cabral
Music : José González
I'm naming them all because they did a wonderful job....sometimes an add is a great excuse to make a beautiful very short film...

Googling around I came across this piece of art by Olafur Eliasson
found it on BLDG a blog about architecture
It's a light sculpture that is constantly moving and changing
here you can see more pictures.... it's called Remagine (2002)
I would love to see that moving...
on the weekend I watched a bit of the Glastonbury festival and saw
the Arctic Monkey's for the first time....they looked like they were only 17
but they turned out to be 21 already. Anyway ... a great performance

Eva Sofia Hagström just graduated at Denmark design school's textile department
I am really taken with her project , it's called reflections because she tried to reflect the outside
surface of the building in her textile design.
I like the way she was thinking not only as a textile designer but also like an architect
Here you can also see all the other graduates.

Next month we're going to a wedding in Germany.... so that's why I'm into dresses at the moment. 'what to wear....what to wear'
These are dresses from the 'lump' collection by Rei Kawakubo/comme des garçon 1997
and these and this one are from Junya Watanabe/comme des garçon 2000/01
You know how some people get tears in their eyes from watching a painting..
I get emotional when seeing dresses like these.
I'm looking forward to reading the interview with Maria Vettese at design*sponge
and.... Hoping for happy accidents ... your an inspiration to me too.

This animation has been removed from Issey Miyake's website
he's got a new website with a new animation ... you can see it here
I really like them although this new one is a bit heavy in terms of kilo bytes

I saw the lamp in a shop a few weeks ago and asked who made it , which I would have done anyway...but since I started grijs I have to say you start looking at things differently .... the next thing that go's through your mind is: I hope she has a website and preferably with good pictures on it. Hope it's not Under Construction...
..... anyway yada yada yada these beauties are made by Celine Wright
Tomorrow I'm going to hunt for cotton an I've found a silkscreen printer who I'm going to visit next week...here's why
