Ich Bin Ein Binliner

Okay, so we really needed to clean up Mimi Berlin’s HQ the other day. Being completely honest with you; that’s a dreadful task for us. We don’t like it, never have, never will, but we had to. By the time we were almost done, there was more than light at the end of our clean tunnel! As we opened up a a fresh new pack of trash bags by Brabantia there is was; surprise and laughter when we noticed the text ‘Ich Bin Ein Binliner’ printed on them! Just what we needed: some good old plain fun after a hard day of cleaning! ich bin ein binlinerDanke Schön Studio Aandacht for giving us domestic household pleasure!

High-End Entertainment at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche

High-End Entertainment at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche

High-End entertainment while shopping; A visit to Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche during fashionweek 2016 in Paris is fun!

Iris in Paris; For this exhibition Ms Apfel came up with 10 moments such as; “a visit to the museum” or “on a terrace”. These moments include an outfit and a short movie. The small exhibition is accompanied by items that are for sale; Iris Apfel produced a capsule collection of objects in collaboration with different brands. Giant necklaces and bracelets designed by Luc Kieffer, a fur bag designed by Iris Apfel herself, huge sunglasses and more “Apfel-like-accessories”. For a friendly price you can also buy yourself some merchandise produced by Le Bon Marché; a mug, notebooks, umbrella’s or an “Iris in Paris” Bag. The exhibition can be seen on the groundfloor of the world’s oldest department store. (Feb.26/April16/2016).

In January 2016 artistic director, Frédéric Bodenes, invited Chinese artist Ai Weiwei to exhibit at Le Bon Marche. Mr Weiwei created 22 delicate, symbolic animals out of paper (or is it silk?) and bamboo. They hang, very tasteful, from the ceiling of, and in, the open escalator spaces of the department store. They give a fairytale-like experience when you pass them going up and down the escalators; and POOF before you know it you’ll be swiping your credit card!

The Story of Patti Waggin

The Story of Patti Waggin

Patti Waggin (Born Patricia Hardwick in 1926) was a stripper and motor cyclist! What more can a man ask for? Maybe a double act with the luscious Ricki Corvette? That too was a possible wish come true…

“If there’s one word to describe shapely Patti Brownell, it’s excitement. The young lass lives by it–and for it. Into her existence, Patti packs a triple life: During the day, she’s a student at California’s Chico State College: at night she draws tremendous crowds into the cafe where she presents her whiz bang strip act: and on her off moments, Patti is a death-defying motorcyclist. As far as our luscious blue-eyed blonde is concerned, there’s nothing unusual about her life. Patti’s been winning trophies for motorcycle riding since she was 14. She loves the sport.” Read more of her true story here on the selvedgeyard.com
