France is known for many things….notably the crusty baguette.
We love French designer Marie Bouillie aka Maron Bouillie’s latest quirky and charming collection of bread bags. The artist, fashion designer & photographer launched her company in 2003. Inspired by her childhood growing up in the countryside, Marie combines her skills to produce a beautiful refreshing bucolic collection.
Her photography is printed on high quality cotton which is transformed into bags, storage bags, aprons and various accessories. These “images turned into objects” are made in France and Japan with a high quality requirement.
Her past collections’ themes spanned from fruit and vegetable, to retro Paris and the flea market. Each time, the bags are colourful, quaint and refreshing.
This season’s Bread Collection is a feast for the eyes. Mouth watering baguettes and oven baked breads decorate her collection. As you browse through her site, you feel the need to visit Paris again ! The cafés, the markets, the smell of freshly baked baguette and the sound of the accordeon , aah Paris…..
Danish designer Troels Flensted first appeared on the scene of design when he was selected to represent Danish design in 2016 at the prestigious trade fair Maison et Objet in Paris. He was named Talent of the Year and it was the start of a very promising career.
His signature collection POURED COLLECTION consists of trays, bowls & plates, is precisely the result of 2 years of experimentation and research. the product itself is a combination of mineral powder, water-based acrylics, and pigments mixed together producing a texture ready to be molded. the different patterns are determined by the quantity of pigment added to the mixture and by the way, the mixture is poured into the mold. the final pattern appears as the different ingredients are combined, which is the hardest part to master.
Troels’ professional journey moves at an impressive speed. He was awarded Talent of the year 2017 at Design Awards in Denmark and his work has been exhibited at some of the most respected design fairs across Europe.
His Poured Collection is available on http://www.yadcheri.com. He is a new designer to follow and YAD CHERI is following closely.
The very first Christian Dior home collection launched this week at the house’s new and grand four-story shop in London. Peter Marino designed the Home space in the new Dior shop to resemble a conservatory, with greenery along the white trellis and a diamond-shaped skylight that runs the entire length of the entrance.
For the launch, the brand tapped 11 designers to create a range of pieces that includes handblown glass carafes, ceramic plates, decks of Dior-printed playing cards, notebooks, crystal glassware, and hand-embroidered linens. The designers include India Mahdavi; Lucie de la Falaise; Michaël Cailloux; and the store’s designer, Peter Marino. For each season, there will be a rotating group of artists and designers creating unique pieces under this new in-house label.
The aesthetic of each Dior Home item pays homage to the founder himself—his love of flowers, his progressive and feminine dress silhouettes, and his unmistakable, signature gray and pastel pink. source : Vogue
