The first series of Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks are ready! In order to keep the past of fashion alive, preserve and comment on it, we decided to take one magazine from our mimimagazines collection apart and turn it into artworks; by combining them with costume jewelry from our collection (which is also vintagedeluxe). The collages, 45 in total, are all made with laminated pages from one magazine; Linea Italia Magazine, augm1980, and carefully selected brooches, fixed together in a storytelling way.
‘Hummingbird’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Silver Face’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Bad’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
The ingredients for these collages are both vintagedeluxe. The brooches are mostly costume jewelry which are fixed onto the laminated fashion magazine pages, they can be taken off if you’d like to wear them or you can hang the artwork on your wall (with or without the jewelry; you can decide that after purchase for yourself!)
They aren’t up for sale ye;t they have to be photographed properly first…..we’ll keep you posted!
Mimi Berlin is remembering the many moments watching this image in a mesmerizing state: the beauty, the mystery, it triggered the imagination heavily.
This image is an invite for a fashion show given by Dutch fashion designers, Puck & Hans in 1978. Photography for this image was done by Wout Berger, “model Mieke posing for Wout on the border of IJsselmeer. No Photoshop in these days: the pictures were composed together with scissors and glue!” puck & hans

“Tomorrow, July 8, Sotheby’s Paris, in association with Kerry Taylor Auctions, will stage its first auction of Haute Couture, which gathers together 150 items from the private collection of Didier Ludot. Didier Ludot, France’s greatest “fashion antiquarian”, surely needs no introduction: his legendary Palais-Royal gallery is a must for any fashion-lover visiting Paris. Specialising and dealing in vintage fashion for more than forty years, he has carefully selected and set aside many of the most important pieces he has handled for his own personal collection.” (read/see sothebys.com)
How cute are these tiny cars?! They are one seaters, especially hot in the fifties of the previous century, built for driving in the city. A Fiat 500 could be considered as a microcar as well….See the Largest Collection of Microcars In The World HERE
