Loudspeaker by HAY for Sonos

Loudspeaker

Yes, a Loudspeaker, not Loudspeakers, plural, as we used too name these things (if we wanted to listen to music in ‘stereo’. But that’s a different and historical story). Back to the topic of this post. The ‘One Smart Speaker’ is designed by the Danish HAY company for Sonos, in a limited edition in cute colors. We’ll categorize this product as Friendly Design. Same as everything else we’ve seen at HAY during the Milan Designweek 2018.

Sonos are supposed to produce good loudspeakers so we, at Mimi Berlin, say: Auch Haben!

SoGoodToWear Cashmere

SoGoodToWear Cashmere

SoGoodToWear (SGTW) is a new Dutch cashmere brand. Not your average brand, no! SGTW is a sustainable fashion label which owns a goat herd in the higher regions of Nepal The goats provide for the high quality cashmere used by SGTW. The knitted collections are designed in the Netherlands by Mark van Vorstenbos, and are made by cashmere knitters in a fair-trade knitting factory in Nepal. Maybe needless to mention (but we will anyway) SoGoodToWear is a fair-trade brand which uses innovative and ethical ways to breed and herd their goats without causing any environmental damage.

The imported goats get their own scarf, with a portrait illustrated by Machteld Schouten. Above the first one; it’s ‘Cappucino’ the goat. The second goat, ‘Mr Gaga’, also has been portrayed but that’s still a secret…… We, at Mimi Berlin, took care of the styling for the webshop, photography was done by JW Kaldenbach. Ofcourse it’s ‘styling light‘ but we just want to show all the work we do at MB-Modebüro.

Martin Margiela was the creative director for Hermès from 1997 to 2003: at the Fashion Museum in Antwerp they made a complete exhibition out of this fact! Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited. We were especially stunned by the beauty of the showcase below. It wasn’t allowed to take photo’s at the museum but we simply had to make this one.The skirt and the upper part of the boots are made in the same fabric, a traditional Hermès cloth. The leather parts are in Navy (that’s dark blue)
