Maison Alaïa the Digital Store

Maison Alaïa

The ultimate designer clothes, from Alaïa, who sadly passed away last year, are brought back to live in the shape of Maison Alaïa. And to be more specific: its first digital store which exclusevily carries the New Edition Collection, a series of iconic pieces selected from the Azzedine Alaïa archive. Make sure to visit this site, even if it’s only once.

New Edition Collection

“Each of these garments will be made to the exact specifications and rigorous construction insisted upon by Mr. Alaïa himself and in the original fabrics or, should these no longer be available, in new materials inspired by them. Garments will carry a label according to the year this design was first shown.”

the ‘Les Intemporels’ which are classic pieces. And if that isn’t enough for you: there are two Alaïa flagships stores, one in in Paris and one in London. Continue reading

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mimi Berlin watched the Prada show via livestream (prada.com) in the comfort of her own headquarters (praise technology!) and she has something to say about that fashion show. In a nutshell; first impression published on instagram.

And we’re off to the convention center. Which is also our holiday spot for this year. We are global citizens, wordly wanderers. We are proteced from the cold by High-tech gear, we don’t need socks. Our summer outfits are padded and printed. Our work-wear is made from padded nylon and other thick high-tech cloth (or is that wool?) the colors are in tonal hues of black, yellow, purple, brown and green.

Eye-Seats by Vivolli

Eye-Seats by Vivolli

The other day we stumbled upon a lovely pouffe, a design from the new furniture brand Vivolli (since 2015); It has the in the shape of an eyeball. It can be lifted up at the “eyelid”; you can put your hand under that part.This little gem comes in 3 vibrant color-variations and is made in a velvet like fabric (in two sizes 40cm and 60cm in diameter.) We think we need the larger size, it seems more functional, sitting wise. (is that an understandable word combination? if not: sorry our native language isn’t English. But you knew that already ofcourse….)eye_seat_vivolli(photo taken at the x-bank in Amsterdam)

Vivolli has 4 chairs only for sale. The eyeball is the one design we really like, probably because of it’s surreal vibe. The three other designs are very different from this little seater, and a bit too eighties and unfriendly in design for us. The pouffe is available online at Vivolli webshop, the smaller size in store at the X-Bank in Amsterdam. Continue reading
