Item of the Week: The Marrakesh Jean

Gwyneth Paltrow's website Goop is a huge success, she and her team of experts give us "the best of lifestyle" to help us simplify and feel inspired. From creating a simple recipe to choosing the perfect summer dress. 

This month Goop teamed up with denim label MiH to crate a pair of jeans. Their Marrakech style is the brands best seller and so Goop decided to re make them in a "Real Blue" color to be sold exclusively at Goop. We love them, the fit and the color are just perfect!

"We love our MiH Marrakesh Jean in perfect blue denim: soft, timeless and flattering. We left them free from any distress for you to break them in naturally over time to achieve your own looks and wash" 
- Goop

Blumarine: Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

If you saw Blumarine's Fall/Winter'12 RTW Collection you will find these pictures familiar, if you didn't here is a small preview of the collection. The show began with five fluorescent lamb coats color-matching a big fur bag. This beautiful mongolian fur bag caught our attention since the moment we first saw it, for it's size and colors. The bag was featured in five electric colors: yellow, pink, green, purple and aqua, and more calm tones like, white, grey and a nude pink. The bag is very futuristic, but we are loving it, big and fluffy! We are pretty sure that this F/W'12 fur bags and fur coats will continue to be a huge trend. The question is, are you ready to wear your furs in bright electric colors?

Blumarie's F/W'12 bag collection is now available for pre-order, arriving October 2012.

Hermes & Hiroshi Sugimonto

French fashion house Hermes has been working on their third edition project for Hermes Editeur. Where they invite artists to bring new ideas and creations to make a limited edition scarf line. For their third edition they invited Hiroshi Sugimoto, an important Japanese artist.

From 2009 to 2010 the artist worked on a artwork titled Colours of Shadows, which consisted on taking long exposure shots of cinema screens. The vibrant and colorful photos were achieved by letting light through a prism. He created a whole series of Polaroids with various color combinations and shadows, from which Hermes selected 20 of them to print them on silk scarves using a ink jet printer. Each scarf will retail for around $8,860.

Suno Sneakers

We just discovers some really cool sneakers by Suno. Suno is a New York based women's label founded in 2008. Their first small collection was created from vintage Kenyan textiles and was produced in Kenya.

Since it's inception, Suno has evolved it's business to include production in Kenya, India, Peru and it's home base of New York. Via a combination of traditional, local techniques and high-end tailoring, as well as emphasis on fit and fabric, Suno is able to offer a global unique view of the luxury world in an accessible way. 

We are huge fans of Suno, they have the most amazing prints and patterns in their shoes, don't you think? The best part is that all of their shoes are made from recycled rubber and 15% of every purchase is donated by Suno to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a Kenyan preservation devoted to the protection of endangered elephants and rhinos. Each pair of sneakers comes in a cute drawstring carryon pouch so you can pack them or store them easily.

Balenciaga: Florabotanica

Balenciaga is releasing a new fragrance "Florabotanica" this September. Actress Kristen Stewart is the face of Balenciaga's new fragrance. The fragrance is Nicolas Ghesquiere's second for the label. Balenciaga told him to pick out a face with a "young consumer" in mind, because that's the target demo for the fragrance. He based the scent on a 2008 collection that features "nasty" and "nice" flowers. The key notes of the scent are vetiver, amber and calcium-lead accord, a hybrid rose, carnation and mint accord. 

We fell in love with the bottle design, inspired by a laboratory bottle in which striped tubes can be dipped to cull the botanical gardens extract.

You can't miss the new seven part series on BBC World News, Collaboration Culture where they pair fourteen creative and celebrated figures from the world of fashion, dance, music, food and art and invite them to collaborate on a new innovative project.
