After a very nice, quiet day on the beach I am going to share something fabulous with you. A slide in the shape of an elephant on the beach, an old playground equipment on the coast of Spain, in Girona. Elephant slide – Girona, 1975. Francesc Català-Roca.
To give you a small fashionable advise, you will beat everybody in “speed sliding” if you are wearing a “Lederhose”. (in case you don’t know what that is, watch the little boy below)
A tribute to the world (there are 300 Chanel shops around the world). The world loves french fashion and loves Chanel. The new f/w 2013 collection plays with proportions and movement. Mysterious, from black to gray with silver as jewelry. See the video below were Karl Lagerfeld talks about the collection, the models catwalk around the world and the person who hosts the interview (I think it is Garance Doré) is cut off on every question by Karl. I would love to have a talk with him, he is a great guy .
Lace is slowly slowly moving away from the trend market of the fashion but we will not completely losing it from our side.
As it is leaving the fashion we see it moving towards architecture which gives it a completely different point of view.
LACE FENCE is a high-end metal fabric that gives new insights in how we can create unique environments.
Lace fence is a project by the dutch design company DEMAKERSVAN. In their projects they often combine the sensitive and the small with the powerful, large and industrial.
The Lace Fence project translates that line of thinking. Fencing is a sign how we modified and cultivated our environment. Like brambles fences are rising rampantly around us. What would happen if a patch of embroided wire would meet with and continue as an industrial fence. Hostility versus kindness, industrial versus craft.
