Mélanie Husson, a young French designer, was presenting the “Hyphen” table at PARIS DESIGN WEEK 2013. She was awarded with the Rado Star Prize 2013 for her assemblage of paper and concrete.
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.

The revival of the polka dot officially kicked off last week in new york city with the louis vuitton x yayoi kusama collaboration, one that not only sees the superbrand support the japanese artist’s traveling retrospective. The latest edition opened a few days later at the city’s whitney museum. The façade of the louis vuitton maison on 57th street has been given a striking polka dot makeover, yayoi kusama’s renowned trademark, while the first global window installation was unveiled in attendance of the artist and vuitton c.e.o. yves carcelle. The installation is an artistic tribute to kusama, and embraces her immense body of work and use of infinite design through three illustrative themes: beginning of the universe, eternal blooming flowers in my mind and self-obliteration.
In the late afternoon a pop-up store dedicated to the louis vuitton x yayoi kusama collection opened in soho, with additional temporary outlets scheduled to launch in london, paris, singapore, hong kong and tokyo. The polka dot action shifted towards the whitney museum in the evening where an exhibition preview was given. Afterwards louis vuitton threw a glam-infused dinner party here for the happy few.
