Hello there! Went pining looking for inspiration and lost the track of time. I guess it’s true that 1 minute surfing Pinterest is 15 minutes in real life… but I’m here again with the inspiration I was looking for.
Moda Operandi launched a new campaign under the name “Be your own muse” in collaboration with some Gods of the fashion world such as Carolina Herrera. I must confess that I felt kind of silly looking for inspiration everywhere without realizing that inspiration was in front pf the mirror every day!
This clever campaign stand out the importance of self creations of style, wearing clothes that scream who you are and what you want to project to the world instead of wearing a brand or stuff that you don’t die for just because is on trend.
No more talking! I let you with the ones who know their business. Enjoy!
Ibride new products, presented in premiere during the last Maison&Objet fair in Paris are just a knock-off , gorgeous to say the least . I personally adore this french design studio, they have a pretty defined design style that somehow becomes timeless, and allow us to enjoy their creations every season over and over again.
Besides their world renowned ceramic collections, now they bring us a wonderful collection fo 8 scarves named ISADORA D, and i have to tell you, they are so beautiful, can´t wait to have them all !!!
Next Maison and Object Paris 2012 will be held from 20.01.2012 at Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center. I better start saving since today !!!
As you know, Fashion’s Night Out is now a global event, so I guess you girls out there took tons of pictures, shopped the “season must” and wore your best outfit! ! Please be narcisists and let us envy you by sharing all the nice pieces you found last night and spred your glam by showing us what you wore! All your pictures and links to your blogs are going to be published if you wish, so, let me hear about you!!!
“The 150 movers, shakers and makers that have rocked the Wallpaper* world in the last 15 years”
Wallpaper, the most important design and trend magazine brought us this amazing issue, the 150. I belive this is a collectible item, because it brings us personalities like Ferran Adriá, Patricia Urquiola, The Campana Brothers and Droog just to mention a few. An amazing art also comes with the Artist´s Bio, indeed an amazing magazine.

There isn´t any Industrial Designer Barbie… yet ! But we will keep waiting for her. For now, we can all be happy with Architect Barbie :

It even comes with her lovely thick black glasses, blue prints and a little scale model of her (dream?) house.
The AIA (American Institute of Architects ) and Mattel held a design competition for the architect Barbie, the newest addition to the career-themed “I Can Be” series. The winner of this Design competition designed a lovely, pink, modern, glass filled and glamorous barbie eco-friendly House : “The four-story Malibu beach house features luxurious open chef’s kitchen, fitness room, and landscaped garden on the rooftop as well as green-lifestyle touches—sourced furniture, solar panels, bamboo flooring, and low flow toilets—throughout the 4,881 square feet. But the fashion-loving doll’s favorite part would be the computerized glass tower closet that runs through all floors” Read more in this Article of Times online magazine.
Nobody will built this house unless you want to buy the blueprints and do it yourself. Anyhow , we will wait for that to hapen too. 😉
Remember that this week´s Design Challenge theme is Barbie, wait for the results next Monday and tell us what you think.
Today, on june 29 of 2011 we celebrate the fourth annual World Industrial Design Day . Congrats to all the designers out there , and of course congrats to ourselves too !
The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design ( Icsid ) celebrates the day with a Student Poster Competition : design students from Icsid Member Schools are asked to create a poster that illustrates how industrial design improves the lives of individuals and communities around the world. This year the winner were two students from Chile ( arriba latinoamérica!).
Winning poster by Paula Beatríz Cabrera Osorio and Vania Farías of the Instituto Profesional DuocUC de la Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile.
Icsid also has a very interesting .PDF document to give 10 ideas on how to celebrate World Industrial Design Day, the cool thing is that includes several activities around the globe.
June 29 is the 180 day of the year (181st in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. Such a nice numer isn´t it ?
