Friday Discovery

Today I discover this wonderful collaboration project by Yoox and Case da Abitare where they combine two of my passion, fashion and design.

Case da Abitare is in fact a lifestyle magazine in which they feature news and articles on furniture, design, travel, personalities and much more. In the other hand, is a virtual store for multi-brand fashion and design where I spend quite a lot of time browsing their carefully selected items in clothing, accessories and design stuffs. Here are some of my picks from this campaign :

selection from yooxnecklace by Sabrina Dehoff /stool by Pols Potten /boots by Maison Martin Margiela /lamp by Hans Sandgren Jakobsen

The first batch is a more structured items. This statement necklace will definitely toughen up a girlish dress for the upcoming spring. The same goes to this superb Margiela boots. I really think that this is a good example of a wise investment that will be your wardrobe staple, season to season. While for my appartment, I really love this simple yet stylish lamp and the stool that can also be a side table.

Well, life can’t be just black or white. Let’s put some colours with another selection of items from this collaboration!

yoox selection 2shirt dress by Dries Van Noten / chair by Paola Navone /stool by Philippe Starck / Table decoration by Alessandro Mendini

This second selection is for me by the cream of the cream in design and fashion. I think I can wear anything by Dries Van Noten forever. This chair surely adds a touch of colours amist black and sombre furnitures in my living room. While Philippe Starck is not my usual choice, these lucite stools is a classic that can lighten a bit my bar/kitechen area. Last but not least, this japanese-inspired ceramic is by Milan-based designer Alessandro Mendini can double as a table centre or used to serve minimalist canapés or amuse-bouche.

Check out all of the items in this project here. They also put a “making-of” video where you can see the model working hard to stand among the furnitures :)

Hope everyone is having a glamourous weekend with Oscar this Sunday as well as Cesar ceremony for the Frenchies tonight.

P/S : A small shout-out to one of my favorite Lilloise designer, Genna M with her more-than-awesome selection of “Old Movies” selection. Check-out her website and her Facebook page here, or visit her boutique if you are in town!
