Givenchy Flagship Store in Seoul

One more thing for you to have on the sightseeing route around Seoul – the new Givenchy flagship store is opening very soon.

We already had a sneak peek and simply fell in love not only with the impressive facade, but also with the whole atmosphere inside and the materials used for the interior.

Can’t wait until these beautiful shelves get filled up with awesome creations of Riccardo Tisci & team.

Note this address – it is surely worth it!
78-11 Chenongdam Dong, Gangnam GU, 135-100 Seoul

Christmas á la Alexander Wang

I am really sick of all these cheesy pics of the giant Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center people keep on uploading when in NYC for the holidays. With me it’s different – one of the most spectacular decorations I spotted this season was the one at the Alexander Wang boutique at 103 Grand Street in Soho. Well, this is what a call a classy X-Mas theme.

If you are in town for the holidays, check out the matte black geometric-shaped trees and this cute jumbo sized bear, all paired with stunning oversized black leather bows.

May Santa bring you lots of Alexander Wangs along with the usual dose of health, peace and love.
Happy holidays, guys!

 

Rankin for French Connection

From Sketch To Store – this is how the guys from French Connection call their latest Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign, featuring models posing naked whilst having their actual outfits sketched on their body by illustrator Jo Bird.

Pretty cool, right?!
Now imagine these motives covering a huge billboard in your street – pretty amazing I think…
If you should be wondering who’s idea it all was, here is the answer – creative concept and direction all made by Rankin and his team, absolutely ensuring a wide spread of the visuals.

As usual – great job, you Rankin-guys!

If this was all some sort of reharsal for an upcomming video project is still to be wondered about…

It it for sure not only us, knowing industrial designer Tom Dixon for his conceptual aesthetics, be it in terms of lighing design or furniture. Right now, during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, he is giving a preview on his latest design project, this time more related to apparel than to furniture. Together with Adidas, Dixon is presenting his visions for stylish clothes, combining the dimensions of functionality and fashionability.

What I can say is I totally loved his parka turning easily into a sleeping bag, the totally cozy hoodies that can be zipped into small space-saving bags (so great for non-stop travelling people) and a rather stunning five-in-one overall piece, being a coat, jacket, pant, skirt and shorts in one. Not easy to imagine, right?!

It is not only apparel Dixon put his creative perspective into – in his colab with Adidas, one could find milti-functional accessories such as backpacks, cases or even really stunning shoes.

If you are in town, you should definitely check out the installation at MOST and check out some of the pieces I found really cool.

 

big thanXX to Milan style icon Stefano Carloni for his cool pics.
