One-of-a-kind

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

For the past week I’ve been inspired by the latest issue of (swedish fashion magazine) Bon. It’s a lot of content and so far I’ve enjoyed the article about Yohji Yamamoto and find his views on design, creativity and imperfection liberating. I indulge in the quotes by other interviewed commenting on for instance the fashion shop scene at the time with lots of small independent boutiques buying fashion for arts sake. “Hanging in the shops they enhanced their whole stock and merchandice as being one-of-a-kind unique pieces” (Gene Pressman of Barneys NY). It’s how I feel about some of the things I sell here at manos, they’re not necessarily easy or fast to sell, but they bring so much soul, avantgarde or feeling to the space and the other items I sell.

The rest of the magazine also inspire with some fantastic photography by for instance Boe Marion. And the fashion of course, I love the feather cape by Thom Browne and the structured dress by AF Vandevorst. And now I have the whole article about Loewe to dive in to, mmm.

New years inspiration

Today I’ve been inspired by the book Berlin Fashion by Julia Stelzner. I love looking at the fashion, I love reading the short texts about small up-and-coming brands and I love finding my way to beautiful and harmonious fashion shows like Berlin based sustainable brand Umasans Winter 2014:

A day with mum!

It doesn’t happen very often that I stroll in Gamla Stan (the old town) with my mother, but last Saturday it did! We’d been told about a new gallery with an exhibition that we both were keen to see. Galleri Yamanashi is situated on Köpmantorget 10 in Gamla Stan and the work on show is clothes and lights by Issey Miakey, sculptural and foldable made in recycled plastic. It’s hard to believe that it is only plastic and it’s amazing how a flat folded square can become a stunningly sculpted skirt or top. I’d wear it anytime. The work is aerily and beautifully displayed.

We strolled around, visiting Fartygsmagasinet, Happy Stockholm and Ljunggrens papper. We had afternoon tea at Chaikana, beautifully situated tea house just by the German church. A lovely, if a little pricey, way to take tea!

Further away for me, the exhibition The Future of Fashion is Now is on at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. I’d love to visit that.
