Clipped At Birth: SANDRA BACKLUND

in_no_time_pic4_photo_ola_bergengren

Her pieces show the hard work and time that went into making each one of them. Once upon a time you would had to order Sandra Backlund’s custom made designs to fit your body, now with Maglificio Miles, an Italian knitwear company who Ms. Backlund has collaborated with, Sandra Backlund garments can be worn by some of the fashionable ones who cannot or just doesn’t want to spend a lot.

I dare say that Backlund creations will keep us interested for years to come, because of  her innovative three-dimensional garments that shows us her own signature signature silhouettes that you either love or hate, nothing in between.

Darcel Where You At?

Came across these series of images from artist Craig Redman. His cartoon character Darcel of Darcel Disappoints made an appearance at the newly opened Louis Vuitton London Maison, and gave us his personal commentary.  Actions speak louder than words with D.D.

I Don’t Think So: Hermes Wants You To Ride With Your Jewels.

hermes-talaris-saddle01

Luxury brand Hermès, is going full force with their brand.  Forget their $6,000 birkin bags.  Last month they unveiled a high-tech modular saddle featuring a tree made of carbon and injected thermoplastic, blah blah blah, the saddle cost $9,100.   They didn’t stop there, keep the wallets open ladies.

For the price of about two and a half of the Hermès saddle, you can buy a pair of clip-on rose gold and black jade earrings, which cost $23,675.  Why get a pair of earrings when you can get a  diamond necklace for $880,000.  What do you get for spending so much on a piece of jewelry, a custom-made alligator box.  That’s the least they can do after you’ve spent enough to buy a mini mansion?

Beautiful Things: Seeing Through The Wood Herrlicht.

Herrlicht

These glasses you may not find at Lens Crafters.

herrlicht glasses

HERRLICHT has become a synonym for wood glasses, thanks to designer Andreas Licht who has created refined glasses that are nevertheless easy to handle.  In every HERRLICHT frame, the individual grain of the wood is preserved much like the rings you see in a tree.  A bonus part of the HERRLICHT collection is a beautiful case, too, naturally made of wood. Now, my only question is do we use Orange GLO to clean the frames!
