Puck en Hans Made in Holland The Movie

Puck en Hans

Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to the premiere of the Dutch fashion documentary ‘Puck en Hans – Made in Holland’ at the Stadsschouwburg Utrecht during the Dutch Film Festival of 2019. The film is about fashion-duo Puck Kroon and Hans Kemmink and it is directed by Peter Wingender.

Dutch fashion-icons

Wingender followed these Dutch fashion-icons for a year during the preparatons of their retrospective exhibition in the Amsterdam Museum in 2017. The couple started their first boutique in 1969 and the film takes us from that year all the way through to the 1990s. Alongside lovely archive material and interviews with, next to Puck en Hans, Viktor and Rolf and Frans Ankoné (to name a few) we get to know about some important Dutch fashion-history, in a fun and realistic way.

From the 3rd of October the documentary can be seen in a theatre near you. Don’t worry; the film is subtitled in English. In the fall of 2019 the documentary will be on TV in ‘Close Up’ by co-producers AVROTROS.

5Vie District to-do-list for Milan Designweek 2019

5Vie

It’s that time of the year again: from April 7 through April 14 it is Milan Designweek time. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team decided to make and share our to-do-lists with you this year, for free! Our first list covers the so-called 5Vie Distict in the historic heart of Milan.

Group Exhibitions

Masterly; the Dutch pavilion dedicated to design and artisan craftsmanship made in the Netherlands situated at Palazzo Francesco Turati. (Via Meravigli 7) More Dutch Design: Connect is a site-specific (Via Cesare Correnti) installation by designer-duo Kiki van Eijk & Joost van Bleiswijk (with participation of Niels Hoebers, Sander Wassink and Michela Castagnaro) ‘The Litta Variations / Opus 5’ exhibition at Palazzo Litta (Corso Magenta 24). showcases several designers (a.o) Pro Helvetia, Mitterteich Porzellan, Japan Creative and Lithea.Local Milan introduces 44 designers from Australia and New Zealand, unfortunately we don’t know where (yet).

Solo Exhibitions

Chiesa di San Bernardino alle Monache (Via Lanzone 13) The exhibition L’Ultima Cera by Anton Alvares is commissioned by curator Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte for Fonderia Artistica Battaglia as part of their new residency program for designers and architects to explore the lost wax technique for bronze. Alvares designed and built a huge machine which he named the Extruder. Sounds fierce, Mimi Blogger Team is curious! Camp Design Gallery (via Giovanni Segantini 71. Metro Porta Genova & Romolo) has the work of Adam Nathaniel Furman on exhibit. A colorful furniture-collection made in collaboration with the historical laminates company Abet Laminati. Mimi Berlin loves both plastic and traditional craftsmanship so we’ll make a stop at this gallery. The basement of SIAM (via Santa Marta 18) hosts the exhibition ‘Human Code’ by Roberto Sironi. Sironi is interested in rituals and uses anthropological references in his designs, sounds promising. We’ll probably visit that exhibition as well.

Shoppings

The Fattobene Pop-Up Shop (Corso Garibaldi, 46. Metro: Lanza / Moscova. Tram: 2 / 4 / 14 Arena) Fattobene (well made in Italian) is an online shop, a platform and an archive dedicated to rediscovering everyday and iconic italian objects, food (packaging) etc. Lesley Luxury Vintage; clothing store located at the via San Nicolao 3a. We will also visit the Ottica San Maurilio (via San Maurilio 14) ’cause we need new glasses/spectacles.

Party

Seletti-Design Pride (April 10/ 6:00PM /Piazza Castello corner Via Minghetti) “the most democratic party of Milan Design Week”. We, at Mimi Berlin won’t be attending this party though.

(5Vie art+design produces and curates exhibitions furthermore 5Vie “represents workshops, crafts, galleries, shops and showrooms in this area focusing on one-of-a-kind pieces,art design and the crosscontamination among the various arts” -5vie.it)
