Three of Machteld Schouten’s Personal pet portrait scarves are published in Re-Fuse Magazine issue #2!
Kittens are the best clickbait these days, everybody knows that, everybody likes those little fur balls of joy. The fashion-peoples got to that conclusion as well. For the Fall/Wintrseason of 2018 we’ve seen cats in a printed ad by Givenchy, Vetements uses the little cats and puppy’s on instagram. #instacats, yes it’s that simple!
We are sure there are many more examples, if you have one please don’t be shy and share them! xoxo Mimi
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.
Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov
The Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov are installations and digital prints of entirely upholstered rooms in which he stages animals in white. We, at Mimi Berlin, think they are wonderful. We would transform our house into Rasulov’s Carpet Interiors but we dont own a vacuum cleaner: so that’s a no go, period. Farid “Rasulov is active across a wide range of artistic media – large scale paintings, installations, 3D graphics, animation and sculpture.” (read more faridrasulov.com)

Dogs in the Livingroom is an installation from the solo show at the Raboan Moussoin Gallery, Paris in 2014.
Glass Objects by Ned Cantrell
