I love Yvan Rodic and how he is able to take beautiful pics of fancy people. Recently he was in Milan for the fashion week (well, yes, so was I ...but maybe in my case it doesnt mean much :)
Here are some snapshots as pictured in http://yvanrodic.com/posts/4866/milan
These pics come from a great fashio street blog I have recently discovered. The blog is http://www.koo.im/blog/ and it is run by a New York based guy who says "Through my camera lens, I hope to express and represent a myriad of cultures through fashion in hopes for the world to see. I am always on the streets of New York City and if you have yet to see me, I am positive you will if you are a true fashion lover". Should I add something else? I wish I could make pics like these....
Throughout their travels in many parts of the world, Rita Overzat and her two daughters, Ali Trier, and Jenna Overzat, decided to design a few bags made of authentic watersnake just for themselves as a memory of their whirlwind Indonesian vacation. After receiving an abundance of undeniably positive feedback from friends and retailers back home in New York, the decision to introduce beirn to the world was left unanimous. And now they sell almost everywhere, from Russia to Mexico.
Beatrice’s handmade leather moccasins, I love them so much. The moment I saw them, I just fell in love. She mixes indigenous-inspired styles with her native Mexican twist. I love the boots..they cost a bit (230$ on http://www.beatricevalenzuela.com/)...but I am pretty sure they are worth the price!
1. The combination of nylon and natural bristles is perfect for giving hair a smooth and shiny "flat-iron" finish without the lifeless look flat irons give.
2. The perfect length of the bristles. The length of the bristles is really important in a hair brush – if they’re too short, the brush won’t glide easily through the hair, which will give you a dull and frizzy blow dry.
3. A slight curve on the bristle part of the brush. All Mason Pearsons have this – it's perfect for giving your roots volume and creating a slight bend at the ends.
6. The size of the handle. The brush handle on Masons is thin enough to hold comfortably in your hand and to lay flat against your forehead when blow-drying bangs.
7. Durability. I know people who have had a Mason Pearson brush since they were children and still use it as adults. I've used mine on countless heads of hair and it's just as good as day one.
A Mason Pearson is definitely pricy, and there are a lot of knockoffs (especially in Europe), but this is the best one!! I bought mine at www.tlcpharmacy.co.uk
Just below you can see the pics of one of the clutch bags I make...the same bag has been featured last week on Le Dernier Cri, the blog run by Devina Solanski http://www.lasocietedustil.com/wp/?page_id=2 Devina has been been so incredibly nice to write about my bags..I am so moved!
I just love these African inspired patterns by Trine Lindegaard. Trine is Danish and studied industrial pattern cutting and manufacturing at the Istituto Carlo Secoli in Milan...her last men collection is beautiful as that (see below). Her clothes are noted as “colourful with a light-hearted approach to menswear” and she is definitely known to be bold with textile techniques and innovation. www.trinelindegaard.com
I'm so glad I met Devina yesterday in Bologna. She is a very interesting person, with a multicultural background and she makes EXTRAORDINARY bags...extraordinary in the sense they are beautiful and of extreme good quality. Her company is called La Societe du Stil http://www.lasocietedustil.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/IMG_9681.jpgand is based in Basel, Switzerland. Here are some pics of her bags...I mean, don t you think they are amazing?!!
