Press Giftbags Sharing What we got at Milan Design Week

Press

There are press-days at the start of the Milan Design Week, and that has it’s perks. Not only can you visit venues without waiting in line (looooooong lines, for the most populair presentatons) but you also get press material. We, at Mimi Berlin, are press because we have a blog, where we share all things nice in life. We never really work hard to go everywhere and gather gifts, because that’s not a nice thing to do with your life. Anyhow we went to the press days at Ventura Centrale this year and here’s some images of limited edition stuff we took home.

free press gifts milan design week
2 black bags from Maarten Baas, 1 grey bag from COS, 1 off-white bag from triennale, 1 plastic bag from DNP, 1 off-white bad from Weltevree, 2 plastic coins from Kranen/Gille, 1 button from moooi, 1 blue japanese towel from DBP.

Gifts for Free

Of course we don’t need: six bags, two plastic coins, one button and several booklets! Altough they are limited editions, what’s the use? We do really want to keep the catalogue from the Broken Nature exhibition at the XXII Triennale. Also, the booklet by Lensvelt we’d like to keep (’cause it’s photographed by JW Kaldenbach) but the rest?
We will gladly share that with you; our readers!

How do I get my Free Gift of choice

Just leave a comment below and state what you want. First come first serve, you pay the postage fee.
No strings attached but we do expect you to follow us on insta @mimiberlin_amsterdam on facebook @mimiberlinfanpage and here, on this blog.

These Shiny Gift Box Ribbons are so much larger than life! ‘Happy Happy’ lamps designed by Stephen Johnson and cute bags from Maison Margiela. Auch Haben!

Stephen Johnson designed a mega large (ø70cm), exact copy of a shiny giftbox bow to make us happy! His ‘Happy Happy’ bows, dating from 2010,  have been relaunched in 2017 featuring a lighting unit, made in mirror polished aluminum in four colours. The Happy lights are made to order.

And, what a fun coincidence (is it?): Maison Margiela has bags in the same shape, The MM6 ‘Mirror gift bow shoulder bag’ is also taller than the real shiny paper shiny bows, but way smaller than Stephen Johnson’s lamps. If you want to buy the bag go to farfetch for the lilac one, silver is still on stock at margiela.com. Continue reading

Glossy Plastic by Kartell

Glossy Plastic by Kartell

We know Kartell produces glossy plastic furniture, new for us was the Kartell fashion line; bags, boots and shoes. Kartell collaborated with Giorgiana Zappieri and .normaluisa, together they created a range of plastic accessories (not only in pink, also available in black whte and several other color-combo’s). The shoes are a bit Melissa-like, but the bags (aren’t they sticky when worn over the shoulder?) we truly like…… (buy at .normaluisa)
