I Heart Origami

Bea Szenfeld

Swedish based fashion designer Bea Szenfeld’s innovative collection “Sur la Plage” (On the Beach) is a 12 piece collection inspired by mythical folklore of the sea and of the creatures that lure and seduces sailors into the depths of the sea and rivers from such fantasy. Each piece has been arduously created by paper, which seems ironic considering the environment which the collection has taken its inspiration from. Other inspiration that the Polish born designer has drawn from is 1950’s burlesque feminine high-waisted forms, geometry and architectural influences. I’ll begin with my favourite, enjoy the splendor that is “Sur la Plage”…

This piece took an amazing two and a half months to create.

Check out Bea’s other creations here. I’m off to dream of the sea. Night

AMAZING!! This LEGO kitchen was designed by Paris-based Simon Pillard & Philippe Rosetti, the Munchausen LEGO Kitchen was created around an IKEA kitchen island, which over a week they cover with more than 20,000 LEGO pieces. What an amazing result, I don’t know about you but if I had 20,000 LEGO pieces and a whole load of patience then I’d love to make a LEGO creation!

“Inside all of us is a Wild Thing” Maurice Sendak

This weekend a pal told me that Opening ceremony had some Where the Wild Things Are inspired clothing for sale as well as a collection of jewellery by Pamela Love, which I had to blog about. Below I have created a list of all things inspired by the amazing book by Maurice Sendak.

Where the Wild things are

Christian Joy, famously known as the designer behind the amazing Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs elaborate and imaginative stage costumes has created 5 monster suits in honor of Where the Wild Things Are , some of which are below and the others can be found at the Urban Outfitters blog.

Dominic Jones’s seriously amazing AW09 collection. The 2 thorn knuckleduster would look simply divine on my hand! I think Dominic should accessories the ladies in the next installment of the Twilight series or Alice Dellal, Lizzy Jagger, Eliza Cummings and Emma Chitty should just take their place, they’d make incredible vampires. His collection was photographed by Matt Irwin.

Unfortunately I saved this to my computer a few years ago without taking note of who it’s by.

Ohhh, it’s all one big long wish list! I’d better watch Derren Brown’s show tonight to see if he lets on how to predict the lottery numbers.
