Sunday To Do Tip: Abcoude

Today would be a nice day to visit the lovely village of Abcoude, close to Amsterdam in The Netherlands. Why? Beacause the private home ‘Shamrock House’ in Abcoude is open to public, and it’s filled with art, design objects, photography and tableware, all for sale. Oh.. and Dutch artist Meinbert Gozewijn van Soest will be drawing your portrait if you want. This exhibition is organized by Vasco del Arte and it houses work by, a.o; Airco Caravan, Narouz Moltzer, Peter Klashorst, Marcel Smink, JW Kaldenbach, Gem Kingdom, Adzer van der Molen, Mrs Jack and yours truly Mimi Berlin.

We did follow up on the Sunday to do tip, see the photo’s, made by JW Kaldenbach, above.

Mimi Magazines Coverstory

Mimi Magazines Coverstory

Way back in 2010 we, at Mimi Berlin, had a little business selling our collection of Vintage Fashion Magazines from the attic. We also had a copy of a Vogue UK, the September issue of 1967 with Dutch, then, model Willy van Rooy on the cover (500 grams/€65,–) Somehow we found out that Ms van Rooy didn’t own a copy of this particular issue and so we sended her ours. We did ask if she could make a picture for us, (see that one above) that she did. We also could pick out some of her jewelry, which Willy van Rooy designs herself and sells in her Etsy store.
Now that’s what we call a good, fashionable MimiMagazines swap!

We have still some vintagedeluxe fashion magazines for sale left, see them HERE

What is Choke Chokers?

Thus all our leather and fur are remnants from the fashion industry that would otherwise be discarded. This project is therefore not just about creating a high quality handmade product but has also opened a window for us to provoke a dialogue about sustainability.
