Hello! Meet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior. Obviously they are twins. They aren’t amongst the living anymore. But they still are in our thoughts and inspire us everyday to create, decorate and collect everything. #collectingeverything
We love that they wear the same outfit! And look at those pied de coq checkered tops splatting from your screen. We can’t keep the apart! (not true)
Have a nice day xoxo Mimi
Danke Schön Aunties P & M for this wonderful image!
A Walk in The Park with Balenciaga. Menswear Show Spring/Summer 2018
Balenciaga’s latest menswear fashion show, spring/summer 2018, was held at Bois de Boulogne in Paris. It showed what life (das leben) could look like if people stopped wearing the same drab clothes all the time. Something we can only dream about when strolling our local park: Balenciaga’s outdoor venue, and the designs, visualised that for us.
Being as long in the fashion business as we, at Mimi Berlin, are makes sure that there is little surprise left: even at the NY-Paris-London-Milano fashion shows (which are top-notch main-stream-high-fashion-events) ‘things‘ keep repeating themselves. But the work of the artistic director at Balenciaga (and Vetements) Demna Gvasila, is still a breath of fresh air to us. (pun intended)
watch the show at balenciaga.com
overview ss18 menswear balenciaga.com
shop/pre-order the look at Balenciaga.com
shop/pre-order the bike at Balenciaga.com
The show looked like a family affair of fine dressed persons taking a hike: and that’s the only comparison that can be made about the models; they were al SO different. (Just like Demna Gvasila’s brand Vetements “No Show’ models: those are Hamburg citizens not prof. models.)
Furthermore, we suggest you take a look for yourself at balenciaga.com (or #balenciaga on instagram; pictures taken by the audience are always nice, atmosphere wise.) see if you like this performance as much as we do and, to get an actual look at the silhouettes and clothes, on which we obviously didn’t report.
You can shop (pre-order) this summer collection as we speak; NOW.
There are also 5 bicycles to choose from……….
The models were actual families and the venue is a ‘cruising place’ in Paris.
Goodbye Daan van Golden at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen
Less than a month ago, on January 9, Dutch artist Daan van Golden passed away. In Van Golden’s memory museum Boijmans van Beuningen (in Rotterdam) staged a temporary presentation for his family and friends to bid the artist a worthy farewell. A small selection of his impressive oeuvre can be seen in the Serra Gallery till February 19, 2017. (Read more at www.boijmans.nl)
This weekend on Saturday February 4, the day on which Daan van Golden would have celebrated his 81st birthday, the family was at the presentation. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to offer condolences in person. And Yes we took snaps. Snaps?! you ask of us. Yes we did, sometimes one doesn’t know what do in a situation because of the sadness or just beacause you are stunned, and then you just take snaps…..At least we, at Mimi Berlin do. (We have been taken snaps at even more sad occassions than this one, which we never will post because they are too private or awkward, but we feel we can post these series; in memory of Mr van Golden.) Goodbye Daan van Golden.
Thank you Mr & Mrs. J.
