Lace for Men/Hot T-shirts made in Dior-logo-lace

At the Dior show, the history of the French fashion House was dug up from the archives: the monogrammed lace or sheer mesh design,  populair in the 1980s and originally used for women’s ‘intimates’ (underwear) was re-used for t-shirts.

1980s

In the 1980s the Dior monogrammed sheer mesh was considered a bit tacky. Next to stockings and perfume it was the cheapest Dior-item available. It still is tacky now, maybe even more so because we think it’s executed in flock-printed mesh; but in a good way! In our opinion these t-shirts look só hot on men! #thatshot #auchhaben

Many moons ago we created a collection of eggcups: ‘Eierbecher/Eggcups Prototypes’
This project was the start of what would evolve into us, at Mimi Berlin, seriously creating all kinds of unique objects and stattuettes with stories attached to them. (see those at mimimall.me) Anyways, back to the topic of this blogpost.Mrs Jack, a small company which offers sustainable, ready-set trays and tablescapes, has used one of these ‘Eierbecher/Egggcups Prototypes’ for a  breakfast in bed tray-scape. Its the ‘Qualy’ eggcup from the ‘White’ series, set next to a marvelous coffeepot designed by Lutz Rabold, what an honour!

Mimi Berlin SenioR’s 1960s Marriage Pictures

Marriage

Mimi Berlin SenioR dug up this old marriage photo album, and believe it or not; yes, these are wedding pictures, honestly! The story goes as follows. Mimi Berlin SenioR was all dressed up, almost ready to pick up his bride (also Mimi Berlin SenioR) from her parental home for the ‘ceremony’. But first he had to poke up the fire to add some warmth to the small attic (multitasking here: smoking ànd poking) they would call their Home. Nice detail are the very new shiny pots and pans on the shelf in the kitchen area in the background, must have been THE wedding gift.

PS for all you youngsters who don’t know what the f*** they’re looking at:

This is Minimal Living Galore in The Netherlands of yesteryear! The heater runs on coal, which you had to set on fire with matches (and probably a newspaper or something like that). The coal had to be stored in-house. Mind you; Mimi Berlin SenioR lived in a small attic so that must have been quite the ordeal. Un imaginable these days, ain’t it!
