This is how ‘they’ lured you into buying bijoux; by creating a dream that you would know it actually was only that, a dream; these ads are a simple but such a strong incentive to steer the imagination in the right way. Nifty!

We, at the Mimi Berlin offices, got inspired by these advertisements made in the previous century…….The first image is a quick schetch by Mimi Berlin made in 2016: The CEO of the month brooch. (1960’s BSK flower brooch on a 1980’s ad for Nucci Valsecchi interiors from Vogue Italia, Dec. 1980)

Pitch of the week: Knitted Tops

How great are these pictures? They came from a knitting patterns magazine from the fifties. No Photoshop, and that’s how we like it, the poses are a bit peculiar because in fact the models (yes it is a job and talent) are uncomfortable posing with their bodies pushed through a hole in the background paper. It could be a circus act of the fashionable kind. Women without Legs.
This idea could be shaped in the form of an editorial, a movie or an actual sideshow/fashion show.
