Perfume Stories by Mimi Berlin for Harper’s Bazaar NL

Perfume Stories

Not only do we write for this blog, we also work as stylists and photographers. A fine example of that is, again, printed in Harper’s Bazaar NL, in particular the December issue of 2018: Objet D’Amour a perfume story.

Mimi Berlin created 7 visual perfume stories (of which we are very proud) with text by Maroesja de Ruijter, beauty editor of Bazaar NL.

Stay Tuned

We can’t show you all the images yet, we are obliged to wait until the next issue is printed: so yous all have to buy the magazine for yourself. We will publish all the images we created for this 7 page editorial later on.
Please stay tuned!

xoxo Mimi B.

SoGoodToWear Cashmere

SoGoodToWear Cashmere

SoGoodToWear (SGTW) is a new Dutch cashmere brand. Not your average brand, no! SGTW is a sustainable fashion label which owns a goat herd in the higher regions of Nepal The goats provide for the high quality cashmere used by SGTW. The knitted collections are designed in the Netherlands by Mark van Vorstenbos, and are made by cashmere knitters in a fair-trade knitting factory in Nepal. Maybe needless to mention (but we will anyway) SoGoodToWear is a fair-trade brand which uses innovative and ethical ways to breed and herd their goats without causing any environmental damage.

The imported goats get their own scarf, with a portrait illustrated by Machteld Schouten. Above the first one; it’s ‘Cappucino’ the goat. The second goat, ‘Mr Gaga’, also has been portrayed but that’s still a secret…… We, at Mimi Berlin, took care of the styling for the webshop, photography was done by JW Kaldenbach. Ofcourse it’s ‘styling light‘ but we just want to show all the work we do at MB-Modebüro.
