‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ exhibition by Tim Walker

‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ exhibition by Tim Walker

Mimi Blogger Team went to the opening of the exhibition ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ by photographer Tim Walker and setdresser Shona Heath, who also designed the exhibition, at the Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch. This was at the beginning of November. Due to busy work days we weren’t able to post earlier on this must-see expo. We think Mimi Berlin’s Blog is not your only way of getting to know what’s going on, so you probably know all about this show: we won’t elaborate more on how wonderful we thought it was.

The exhibition will run through 25 Feb 2018 at het Noord Brabants museum in Den Bosch, The Netherlands.

Caravaggio in Fashionland

Caravaggio in Fashionland

We finally got hold of the September issue of Vogue Italia yesterday (5/10/2017). Vogue Italia is our favorite out of all Vogue’s, and we weren’t dissapointed with last month’s “Roma” issue either.

We, at Mimi Berlin, think the most stun-ning series in this issue is the Ad Arte! edititorial, in which photographer Willy Vanderperre paraphrases paintings by Caravaggio (with styliing done by Olivier Rizzo) The photo above is made after ‘Deposition from the cross’ painted by Caravaggio around 1600. That’s want we wanted to share with yous all today! Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi Continue reading

Holthaus Generations

Holthaus Generations

holthaus_generationsPortrait of Joey Holthaus by Mimi Berlin, 2015. (Paraphrasing ‘Brides’ 1968 by Dutch photographer Paul Huf & Dutch couturier Dick Holthaus) Joey Holthaus is wearing a vintage Dick Holthaus dress in 100% wool.

During the concept phase of  Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fest #4, we came up with many, many ideas. Our initinal concept was to paraphrase the “Brides” image dressed in Dick Holthaus couture and photographed by Paul Huf in 1968.  Somehow this idea got lost during the making of Fashion-Fest #4 in the studio, our group-portait turned out to be different. The portrait of Joey Holthaus above turned out to be like the original concept, it’s a wonderful by-product of Mimi Berlin’s Fashion Fest #4: two flies in one hit, as they say in Dutch.

Fashion and Photography Horst P. Horst / Mattijs van Bergen

Fashion and Photography Horst P. Horst / Mattijs van Bergen

The exhibitions Horst P. Horst and Mattijs van Bergen’s “Photo to Fashion”, at the Netherlands Photo Museum, are the last exhibitions of the interdisciplinary Black/White program, which lasted 3 years and was about cross-overs between photography and other cultural disciplines.

Horst P. Horst, Photographer of Style, is a retrospective exhibition. produced by the V&A, curated by Susanna Brown. On show are all Horst’s iconic fashion photos, including vintage prints that were never on display. Also on show; Haute-Couture dresses, vintage vogue magazines, sketches and personal notes from Horst. (Sept 26, 2015/10 Jan10, 2016)

The Netherlands Photo Museum and Dutch fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen collaborated on the exhibition “Photo to Fashion“. Van Bergen designed a small collection, he was inspired by 20th century black and white photography from, for example, Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990). Mattijs van Bergen and the Netherlands Photo Museum then invited 3 Dutch fashion photographers, all female and from 3 different generations; Sacha van Dorssen, Wendelien Daan and Petrovsky & Ramone to interpret this capsule collection, next to B&W they all added color to their work, unlike Mattijs van Bergen; the copper accessories were the only touch of color to be seen: Chique!

Wendelien Daan is also the photographer of Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fests, she is family. We think she outdid herself with the “Nymphs” series she made for the “Photo to Fashion” exhibition. The museum liked it as well; Her work “Jamilla” has been blown up larger than life, printed on plastic and can be seen outside as wall, next to 2 images by Horst…..BAM

Cher, the ageless singer/actress/icon, is the new model for the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2015 campaign. How lovely she sits there in the red, almost like a porcelain Victorian doll, posing for photographer David Sims. The picture above is taken from @themarcjacobs instagram, posted 3 days ago. Yes, we know it’s not breaking news anymore….
