Pierre Hardy new Colorama Graff

Posted on April 30, 2010

This season, the new Pierre Hardy Colorama pays tribute to Graffiti Art. In the essence of a tag, the Colorama Graff takes its shape in a series of wide, white “marker” like lines, enhancing the contours of its brightly multicolored backgrounds. An additional thin black patent piping highlights these different areas of contrasted colors (Yellow, Orange, Red, Blue, Grey). As of June 2010, The COLORAMA GRAFF, limited edition # 6 to 500 pairs, will be available in an exclusive selection of the best boutiques worldwide : PARIS PIERRE HARDY Palais Bourbon — PIERRE HARDY Palais Royal — Colette, NEW YORK Barney’s Jeffrey — LONDRES Dover Street Market — MILAN Corso Como — FLORENCE Luisa Via Roma — BERLIN Quartier 206 — AMSTERDAM Shoebaloo —…

backstage exhaustion

Posted on April 30, 2010

our shooting for the last two days would sound ideal to anyone who happened to hear about it: three beautiful girls, unique evening dresses from the biggest fashion houses laying under the sun by the sea at Astir Palace hotel at southern suburbs.  well, not quite because between sequins, silk fabrics and feathers we managed to fight aaaall of us with each other,  a pair every half an hour from 8.00 in the morning until around 19.00 i got home, plus a two hours fight session afterwards on phone. but since the team has gone through an almost military training all those years, we did carry through the shooting successfully and manage not to hurt each other or the models, although i believe the photographer…

when flowers become jewels

Posted on April 27, 2010

i like orchids. not my favorite flower, i  prefer simpler forms of this world’s flora, humble flowers like anemones and freesias- but who can deny the majesty and beauty of an orchid? that’s what charmed Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Chiuri at Valentino House for this season, as many other designers in the past, and created those beautiful orchid cuffs that wrap with tulle around the wrist.  a couple of them arrived this week at work for our next shooting and although they look a bit aggressive shot still-life, they become astonishing when worn. however today i visited Lito Karakostanoglou ‘Cabinet des Curiosités’, a jewel designer whose collections i can spend hours looking carefully the details and uniqueness of every single piece, and i found something…

i’ve about a zillion things to do this week plus a two-day outdoor shooting from dust till dawn so i got to run. since i hardly ever wear any sneakers (that means only for jogging),  i leave you with those Roger Vivier flat sandals ss10, that are closer to what i mean comfortable to work in the city. readmylips

Orila presenting: Ku-Ping Pong Show

Posted on April 25, 2010

although i had an idea of what to expect yesterday from orila’s gig for their new release of artist Ku, “Ping Pong Show”, the whole event in total exceeded our expectation. Set-up  on a rooftop with a magnificent view, in front of the lights of Acropolis by sunset, Mr. Lo-Fi made a small introduction with his collectables vinyls to warm up the audience for Ku’s performance. Ku’s -Dimitris Papadatos- experimental porn pop music matched uniquely with the environment and the tense of the moment, offering us a mesmerizing mind-travel  This new release of Orila includes 6 various versions of Ku’s songs, as performed live on triparadio.gr a few months ago and recorded on tape with a beautiful artwork. Some of them together with a…

these golden and silver platted rings are from the collection “Galaxy” (you understand where they took their name from i guess) by jewelry designer Maria Koutmani. They caught my eye the other day at the gallery “This is not a gallery”, during the photo shoot of the owner Sandra Berten. i think this one below has already my name on it. readmylips
