things _ four








just four images that i like.

while these are not necessarily meant
to be fashion illustrations,
i wanna tell you just how much
i got this urge to make fashion
drawings, or rather, illustrations
(with the intent that people buy them
to decorate their homes with them).

3 _ fashion & styling by nara lee, photo by milo belgrove, via eleonora borsato.
4 _ art by hormazd narielwalla.


see more from hormazd in this earlier post.

furniture _ one witty piece





i just love this möbius strip of a couch.
part of "the metamorfosi" collection
by martino gamper, who re-imagined
various moroso pieces for the company's
60th anniversary.
this piece was loosely based on
ron arad's victoria and albert sofa.

found through the amazing aqqindex.

that space _ the alesbary showroom in brno




lots of beautiful, beautiful hat forms on display


lighting doubles as clothes bar


it's not big at all, but huge mirrors optically double the space.


the facade.



i have no idea how these other spaces are part of the showroom, but
i reall love them, too.



a beautifully minimalistic and sparse space in brno, czech republic
with lots of light and quite a few nice solutions.

clothes and hat designer duo bara and ales (a.k.a alesbary)
opened this beautiful showroom sometime back in 2013.
the space was designed by an architect relative of theirs,
renata kucerova.

read a lot more here at designeast.

found through blogging friend deb's fb page.

words on design _ on being revolutionary




words from american architect denise scott brown (b. 1931, Rhodesia).
here you can read a recent interview with her.

find more quotes on design (well, architecture) on ilikearchitecture.

basically, the idea is that with everyone trying to be revolutionary,
you will be most revolutionary if you try to be ordinary.

fashion flashback _ rifat ozbek







i kinda really liked rifat ozbek back then in the early nineties.

i really can't tell or remember why.
i guess he made once that fashion show with
all-white clothes and silver sequined fanny-packs.
and a black model carrying a beautiful black baby.
hope i'm not mistaken here
(and i hope it was not dolce e gabbana).
i still remember the baby's face. :)
back then it was still okay to carry little babies
on the runway. so many did. or is it still so?

anyways, these lovely ads are from a bit earlier,
from 1987 or '88. naomi was shot by
steven meisel.

i don't know the time rifat ozbek (or, actually özbek,
the turkish language has a lot of ös) gave up his
own label, but later he went on to design clothes for pollini,
and now he apparently make these pillows.
