Meet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior

Hello! Meet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior. Obviously they are twins. They aren’t amongst the living anymore. But they still are in our thoughts and inspire us everyday to create, decorate and collect everything. #collectingeverythingMeet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior
We love that they wear the same outfit! And look at those pied de coq checkered tops splatting from your screen. We can’t keep the apart! (not true)
Have a nice day xoxo Mimi

Pied de Coq


Pied de Coq or Hound’s tooth.
History in a nutshell: these checks originated in woven wool cloth of the Scottish Lowlands, but are now used in many other materials.


Just so you know;
The traditional houndstooth check is made with alternating bands of four dark and four light threads in both warp and weft/filling woven in a simple 2:2 twill, two over – two under the warp, advancing one thread each pass.(wikipedia)

Vionnet, 1933

“The most interesting part of the classic patterns is that they are set in our memory.” Mimi Berlin, 2012
