Very cool Lookbook of designer SixLee, mixing it up with some amazing art by collage artist Ernesto Artillo. The combination makes this really stand out in my eyes. And love how designers now a days mix media to create something totally different. SixLee shows his collection as an art piece.
Another Aesop shore that caught my eye! Love the way Design studio Weiss-Heiten used emerald-coloured tiles to cover the walls, floors and surfaces of the new Berlin store for skincare brand Aesop, making it look like one big soap bar. A product wall and an old sink, makes the store serene “Our aim was to create a space that combines the clarity of industrial grids with the strength of historical materials and their individual patina,” said architect Alberto Franco Flores.
Sander Wassink cuts and re-edits shoes into new footwear.
Taking old shoes and make a new one, that’s the idea of Sander Wassink. Give something a new meaning and creating a beautiful new object. Showing the world you can make new things out of object or spaces that aren’t used anymore, like our contemporary culture of consumption, to a partly demolished façade of an abandoned building.
The shoes are an art object, beautifully crafted footwear only by using something that already existed. I just love it when someone can show how recycling can be for a better use!!! See here more about his flagship store during Beijing design week 2013.
Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by art and used this to show his collection. This Decor is specially made for the Paris Fashion Week. A series of art pieces that made the runway a beautiful gallery. In all paintings, sculptures and other objects you can find Chanel elements, like the Chanel No.5 or the dubbel C-logo. You can see the beauty of combining art and fashion.
Even the collection and music (“Picasso Baby by Jay-Z) was inspirered by art. A perfect confluence of inspiration, concept and end product
Giving the children an adventure; Anagrama made this fantastic steelwork plant for a children’s library. Creating this dynamic interior without disrupting the classified building’s interior. Located in a industrial area with more cultural activities in the heart of Northern Mexican City, like museums and theme parks. The designers Anagrama’s Gustavo Muñoz, Miguel Herrera and Sebàstian Padilla made the grey asymmetrical platform with yellow book shelves and Neon red roof installation with suspended tube-lights, creating a big play room to chill and read a book.
