Ok, ok – blanket cape. Fine. But how about a blanket jacket?
I wasn’t even looking for more when I stumbled up on this: a hunting jacket made from a Pendleton blanket.
The trend continues…
Artist Xavier Veilhan has built a fantastic site-specific, supersized sculpture entitled ‘Sophie’ for new Paris restaurant, Le Germain (designed by India Mahdavi.) As you can see, Sophie is a very tall girl and spans two floors. Vielhan has posted images of the whole process of making ‘Sophie’, which are particularly interesting.
PLUS she’s faceted!
There’s definitely a ‘faceted’ trend going around. Even Habitat’s in on it! Below are ‘Carat’ desk lamps from Arihiro Miyake, ‘Rock’ hanging lamps by Diesel ‘Successful Living’ (yes, the clothing label), ‘Crease’ dishes from Voon Wong & Benson Saw, planters from Habitat… and Lady Gaga, of course.
I know I’ve seen more products like these – but alas can’t remember where. If you see any others send them my way!
Has anyone else noticed a particular blue palette trend? It’s a combination of pale blues with blue green (teal and turquoise in particular). Maybe I’m just imagining it – but I feel like I’ve seen it a few places now. Here’s a few I found from Pierro Lissoni for Porro, Maarten de Ceulaer for Casamania and Jonathan Adler. Has anyone found anything else? It’s very young Picasso!
