Eye-Seats by Vivolli

Eye-Seats by Vivolli

The other day we stumbled upon a lovely pouffe, a design from the new furniture brand Vivolli (since 2015); It has the in the shape of an eyeball. It can be lifted up at the “eyelid”; you can put your hand under that part.This little gem comes in 3 vibrant color-variations and is made in a velvet like fabric (in two sizes 40cm and 60cm in diameter.) We think we need the larger size, it seems more functional, sitting wise. (is that an understandable word combination? if not: sorry our native language isn’t English. But you knew that already ofcourse….)eye_seat_vivolli(photo taken at the x-bank in Amsterdam)

Vivolli has 4 chairs only for sale. The eyeball is the one design we really like, probably because of it’s surreal vibe. The three other designs are very different from this little seater, and a bit too eighties and unfriendly in design for us. The pouffe is available online at Vivolli webshop, the smaller size in store at the X-Bank in Amsterdam. Continue reading

Priscilla Presley in a Car

Priscilla Presley in a Car

A glimpse at the life of Priscilla Presley, photographed by fans (they seem too candid to be taken by paparazzi but maybe we’re wrong) while she was behind the steering wheel of her car. The collection above must be the tip of a very high mountain of photographs. And how many times did Ms Presley must have her signed her autograph? Must be a mountain of paper as well! Priscilla Presley is still photographed in her car. We found one image made in 2014 (on zimbio), there are probably more images but we like the old ones better, she looks happier in them.

Tonight we’ll head on to the Disco. No, not the Discotheque, that’s a place were glamour rules. The plain Disco is more down to earth, like you see above…..(gif via giphy.com)

Comme des Garçons Advertisements

Comme des Garçons advertisments are really something else! Never ever have we seen a single garment in them, most of the time they are just inspiring pictures. That’s how we like our fashion! Flipping through any given fashion magazine, the CdC ads are like a breath of fresh air, they stand out amongst all the pictures of pretty women gazing at you wearing the most desirable garments, make-up and jewelry etc. We always imagined that these wonderful images were the personal favorites of Rei Kawakubo and  imagined Rei browsing through many books after a day of designing clothes at the Comme des Garçons offices. Well, it’s not that way at all! We have been fooled by creative directors House + Holme ( Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Stephen Wolstenholme ) whom are not only responsible for the Comme des Garçons ads but also for the ones by Lanvin and Louis Vuitton (to name just two brands from a long list) they are represented by Total managment in New York City (check that link for more of their work) The Comme des Garçons advertisements are probably most similar to the

Benneton ads made from 1982 to 2000 by Oliviero Toscani; showing no clothes but just images of mostly people, the difference being that the Benneton ads clearly had a message, often political, and were famous for its controversial nature. Both brands started with these campaigns in the late eighties of the previous century, the age in which a punk-mentality had become mainstream.
