Schiaparelli and Kimora Lee Simmons

Schiaparelli and Kimora Lee Simmons.
We love it when our own so called “bad taste” becomes mainstream, or even better, a bit “highbrow”! The catwalk at Schiaparelli’s couture show for fall 2014 was covered in panther (or is it ocelot?) printed carpet! Just the same as the walk-in closet Kimora Lee Simmons had when she still lived with Mr. Simmons (not sure if she still has the same carpet nowadays or if she still carries the name Simmons) Anyways, we at Mimi Berlin don’t actually believe in bad taste, check out our opinion about that HERE in a presentation we made a while ago.

YOUASME MEASYOU Collection Fall-Winter 2014

We got an invitation from our friends at YOUASME-MEASYOU which we would like to share with you

Hi! We are Mark and Twan,

In 2010 we started the World’s First Crowdfunded Fashion brand: YOUASME MEASYOU. We want to realise a closer connection between our designs and you, to be inclusive rather than exclusive.

This is expressed through the designs of our refined knitwear and jersey labels MEASYOU (men) and YOUASME (women).

Our aim is to slow down the speed at which we consume, choosing more aware for better quality and long lasting design.

In order to raise funding for the production of our 7th. collection for Fall/Winter 2014-2015 we now return to the community.

We made a whole list of perks for you to choose from so hopefully you’ll be able to support us.

We would really appreciate it!

Thank you!!

Mark & Twan

We, at Mimi Berlin, will be visiting the YOUASME-MEASYOU new collection presentation at the Frame Store at the Keizersgracht 324 in Amsterdam (saturday May 10, 13:00-18:00)

(Fall) 2014: Butterfly Patterns in Fashion

Butterfly Patterns in Fashion; The butterfly theme started at the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Show for Spring 2014. All outfits had something to do with the little, colorful insect. Hats, prints, shapes you name it, Mr Gaultier had turned it into a butterfly. At Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli also used the butterfly as an inspiration source, well into the Pre-Fall season of 2014. At the Fall 2014 shows the butterfly was seen at Valentino, Givenchy and Les Copains

About the butterfly: “A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect of the order Lepidoptera, which includes the butterflies and moths. Like other holometabolous insects, the butterfly’s life cycle consists of four parts: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Most species are diurnal. Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. Butterflies comprise the true butterflies (superfamily Papilionoidea), the skippers (superfamily Hesperioidea) and the moth-butterflies (superfamily Hedyloidea). All the many other families within the Lepidoptera are referred to as moths. The earliest known butterfly fossils date to the mid Eocene epoch, 40–50 million years ago. Butterflies exhibit polymorphism, mimicry and aposematism. Some, like the Monarch, will migrate over long distances. Some butterflies have evolved symbiotic and parasitic relationships with social insects such as ants. Some species are pests because in their larval stages they can damage domestic crops or trees; however, some species are agents of pollination of some plants, and caterpillars of a few butterflies (e.g., Harvesters) eat harmful insects. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.” and in fashion…(via)
