Fiorucci Fashion is Back

Fiorucci is back. The fashion brand, named after it’s founder Elio Fiorucci, is seriously open for business again. After 2 decades of offering cheaply produced licensed garments, they now (Feb 2019) have a collaboration capsule-collection with Adidas in a store near you.

Working with Adidas gets a brand some kind of standing, they don’t collaborate with just any brand or designer. Well known designers such as Raf Simons, Stella McCartney, and Jeremy Scott (who now is the art-director at Moschino) are collaborating with Adidas, so Fiorucci is in good company. #AdidasOriginalsByFiorucci offers limited editions of streetwear, trainers and accessories carrying the signature fun-discotheque-vibe of the brand.

Relaunch

Fiorucci was relaunched In 2017 when the ‘eighties-revival’ was at its peak. A smart move also was publishing the Fiorucci (history) book alongside. (Rizzoli ISBN100847860159) Introduction to the brand was also done by the first campaign for that summer-season, shot by Josh Wilks with Georgia May Jagger (daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall) in the the main role. The new team re-created the old Fiorucci vibe and images. (more info to be found on fiorucci.com)

Collage Artworks with Brooches by Mimi Berlin

Artworks with Brooches by Mimi Berlin

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.

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!

Bed-Week at Mimi Berlin

Bed-Week at Mimi Berlin

Simply because of the fact that it’s the first week of 2017 we, at Mimi Berlin, decided to spend this week in bed. We understand that not everyone is this privileged; so, if you really need to be outside here are some tips to cosy up on the cold winter streets >>>>>>>>>>

CHOOSE LIFE

George Michael has sadly passed away last year. He became a famous in the 1980s with his band WHAM! At the same time Katherine Hamnett‘s oversized, white slogan t-shirts, the ones with the large block letters, were equally populair. These t-shirts were launched in 1983. We are quite sure that everyone can see the simlarity between the t-shirts and the billboard placed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969 “war is over of you want it”. (pictured above on Times Square in New York City but it was simultaneously displayed at Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles and at six European cities). Both are protesting against ‘unfairness’ in the world.
Well, Just that. Have a happy 2017 Y’all! xoxo

PS
Mimi Berlin isn’t the only one with treasures in the attic: Ms Wilhelmina found an original Hamnett t-shirt on her’s!

What does one do killing spare time on a Sunday? Right….take pictures.

Mimi Memories; Playing around with the Polaroid camera, bananas and a portable neon light…….fun in, what obviously has to be, the 1980s.(tiger print t-shirt from Fiorruci) Found on the attic of Mimi Berlin Headquarters, in one of the boxes filled with polaroid pictures. Most of them even more vague (in topic as well as in quality) as the ones above.
