I was thinking about giving this blog a little more structure. Why? Cause I see so much amazing stuff that I want to share. Which is why I am going to give periodical publishing a try. This is the first one of a monthly series of THINGS I LOVE. Music, Design, Places, whatever floas my boat. And guess what: you can even send me info about something rad you think I might love and if I love it, i will write about it.
YOSHI’s Corner // Vienna // Wollzeile 40
Last Friday, Martin opened his new store. And, it’s not just any kind of store. It’s Vienna’s first proper concept store. I went to the opening and I did like what I saw. It’s a two story place in the heart of town that hosts some great design and, in the lower level, well, Andy Warhol. I ‘m sure they will come up with some more original art to showcase (sorry, I hate Andy Warhol cause he was a self-obsessed douchebag). But the space looks good, ot’s big and state-of-the-art and definately worth checking out for some cool furniture, very lovely wall papers, a pretty large selection of art books and for a perfectly mixed drink in the bar downstairs.
Have a look at some of the pictures I took:
There is video content and there is video content. I watch a lot of stuff in my every day life. For work and pleasure. The most thrilling moments are those when work and pleasure meet. This last happened, when I saw the new online video campaign of EF Language Schools. Paris, Barcelona, Beijing, London etc. are part of the EF network and offer language courses to young students that want to learn a language in its original country. And that this is fun which is portraied in these video clips. The use of typography, images, the right cast, beautiful color grading works magic; and hey, these kids just did an amazing job. LOVELOVELOVE!
NEW KATE SPADE WEBSITE // http://www.katespade.com/
Ahh, maybe it’s the first sunrays this spring that make me love the new website of Kate Spade, but hey, even if it was raining and freezing I would love this. It’s a perfect example of how a brand manages to communicate a feeling to their customers. The colors, the language, the way it’s set up all playful and pretty is exactly what Kate Spade stands for. This website doesn’t say “Hey, you, customer, buy this otherwise you’ll be kicked from the stairwell of style” but “hey, we like what we do, come play with us and while you’re at it, become part of it all by purchasing something”. Great!
BACK TO THE FUTURE // Irina Werning // A photographic study of the past right now
Clever photography makes me happy, and this job by Miss Werning is not only clever but also extremely determined. I mean, collecting old images of friends and family and then making them sit in exactly the same pose in pretty much exactly the same clothes clearly shows that Irina was focused when doing this project. It should be exhibited. And I would go and see it, what a good excuse to go to Buenos Aires in the first place. Check out http://irinawerning.com/back-to-the-fut/back-to-the-future
NOT JUST A LABEL // Fashion Designer Directory
Well, this is not a new thing. But I still want to include it. Why? Because I like projects that are based on a strong and uncompromising love towards something. Some of you might call that idealistic, but seriously, in my world love is the only valid motor to do anything. And NJAL is all about fashion, so I love it even more. Yes, it’s not mainstream, it’s that part of fashion that only the proper fashion lovers know about, but that is RAD! Because today, there are so many people who do stuff they don’t care about in order to make people they don’t care about buy it. Which is terrible, really. I mean in regards to real acomplishement that fills our heart and souls.
Ricardo Bofill // House and Office – 1975, Sant Just Desvern, Barcelona
I am not a great connaisseur of architecture but I know what I like when I see it. This transformed former cement factory turned office of architect Ricardo Bofill based in Barcelona truly amazed me. Its a space that I instantly felt like visiting and am planning to visit during my next trip to the Catalan Headquarters in may. I came across it on one of my favorite sources of inspration, Trendland and you are welcome to read up on it. If I visit this place I will make sure to take some pictures myself…
