CARIBLANCO ♡

Today I want to share with you one of my favourite labels: CARIBLANCO CLOTHING. The talented graphic designer Fabiana Kuhn worked and lived in Barcelona and Zurich and has settled down in Costa Rica, from where she applies her knowledge of art and design in her surprising collections.

DESIGN – REUSE – REMADE: Fabiana creates clothing and graphic application, she selects the best in vintage clothing and she remades customized vintage clothing by adding a value to every piece and giving it a vanguardian spirit that makes every piece unique and special. She gets her inspiration by films,music, art, design and open minded people.

Love it ♡

Elements of magic 2012, Michael van der Meide.

Have a look at “Elements of magic”, the collection of my friend Michael van der Meide for Spring 2012. For this shoot he worked together with the dancer Natasja Bode and the photographer Brenda de Vries. He developed the prints in photoshop in a kaleidoscopic kind of way with a lot of symmetry. The motives are inspired by the underwater world and the inside of a giant shell, which had beautiful mother of pearl in it. This collection, which consisted of 20 looks, was shown and presented at the Prêt-à-porter fashion fair in Paris in September 2011 in the Green Orange collective Wave up.

Cneeon Berlin, Collection Fall/Winter 2011/12.

The new collection from Cneeon Berlin is published. The Fall/Winter collection called “Iris” is dominated by prints, knits and elaborated patterns, as we are used to see from Cneeon. The flowers and patterns remind me of traditional Japanese patterns and kimonos. I love their brave combinations and colours, especially the crazy leggings and the knitted jackets and scarves. For further informations about the label you can visit their website and their webshop. A big thank you to Clara for sharing the pictures with me and good luck with the new collection!

New collection: Michael van der Meide, Holland

    

I have received pictures from my friend Michael van der Meide from Holland. He has a new collection called “burnig desire”. I like very much the different brown tones, the patterns and the models he worked with. Some styles remind me of traditional Indian Saris I have seen on my travels to India.  I’m looking forward to his next collection! All the fabrics are printed with inkjet technology.
