Golden Hook & Grandma


These guys had a bright idea -to me:

They actually let customers design their own hat/scarf and then choose the grandmother they’d like to knit it !
After choosing the one they’d like to knit their hat, customers can send her a message and can even request that she signs her name on the hat’s label.

These days there’s nothing like knowing (and being able to share) the product life story of a locally handmade good to make a consumer value it more.
How smart is it !

Rykiel undressed H&M / Paris Grand Palais


Ok, well,
how to start ?

Yesterday night, the Grand Palais welcomed an oversized show for the swedish monsters Hennes and Mauritz. In a few days they are launching a collection by Sonia Rykiel, starting first with underwear.

and they made it like it was THE big launch...

With such an high budget (3 or 4 million euros for one night) the swedish giant didn't take much risks. It seems all the guests -including me- have spent a hell of a night... Etienne Russo made the art direction (he usually works with Dries Van Noten, Hermès, Chanel and Rykiel) and created a likewise fairytale in a huge fairground.

I hope, despite the current dull time they will succed with this new French partnership !

Anthropologie I London


The american brand, Anthropologie is coming over the european market.
Well known by those (girls/women) who have been to NYC -for instance, Anthropologie is an upper version of Urban Outfitter.

The atmosphere in this new shop might be as its american sisters : huge (Regent Street location is a whopping 11,000 Sq ft) very detailed, classy and arty athmosphere.
Wooden floors, green walls, they mastered a great new shopping experience.
Just like the Merci concept store in Paris if i can compare.

If you do not have the money the store is worth a visit just to marvel at the visuals.
and for those who are not in London, they ship in more than 30 countries from the web.

C/O Berlin | 10 years of photography, Deutsche Börse


I've been recently to a great photo exhibition in Berlin:

With subject matter ranging from landscapes, architecture, interiors, and portraits, the collection brings together top-class, mainstream works, and icons of contemporary photographic history.
It is a bit late though to advertise on that exhibition closed for a few weeks but it is not too late to talk about these inspiring photographers
