Well, this graph is going to explain you, what you need to accomplish that secret dream.

Le Modern Baroque!

24 Feb

You know what I love? Baroque style! It’s something that I really admire since I was little and I saw those voluptuous dresses on some movie, for the first time! Those extravagant hair styles, the glamorous patterns and textures, those dresses’ curved shapes and, of course, the exuberant make-up! All the details made my eyes shine of amazement! Well… I guess it still does.

I collected some products that were inspired by ‘Le Baroque’ style! Oh! Oui mademoiselle! J’adore!

NYC | Fashion

6 Feb

These are pictures of last year’s fashion shop windows, but as you can see everything is still so trendy!

I was not allowed to take photos at Alexander McQueen Savage beauty exhibition, which was really sad but comprehensible. Believe me it was amazing to be so close to those pieces of art.

Social Keds

25 Jan

It looks like today it’s all about the Internet and Social Media! We can’t pass one day without searching something on Google, learn a bit on Wikipedia, writing on some blog or going social on Facebook, Twitter and its fellow wannabes…

All this plays an important role in our lives today, and despite our denial, you know it’s true! Come on… We all saw the protests against SOPA and PIPA some days ago, when the government decided it wanted to censor our beloved Internet!

Taking advantage of all this love and addiction Keds asked itself: if people love internet so much, wouldn’t they like it feature in their shoes?

And then… Internet just landed on your feet!

I think they should have one with all the TUMBLR rage faces… Just sayin’

Opinions?

Genius | Oreo Tea

3 Nov

Oreo-Infused Milk. You now you want it.

Some smartasses or should I say “Masters of deliciousness” from Miami Ad School created *drums beat* The Oreo Crumb Case!

The Oreo Crumb Case stores the leftover cookie crumbs as a “tea bag”, so you can infuse Oreo flavor into your Milk.

Isn’t this the best idea ever? Hats off to these guys, please! This calls for a prize.

This idea fits the brand perfectly and has everything to do with its ancient/boring commercials about a kid and his dad dipping Oreos in a glass of milk. But the thing is: this idea is way cooler and it’s ecologic. Super trendy, straight to the target, straight to Tumblr, straight to young people’s hearts!  In my opinion every Oreo package should come with 2 or 3 Crumb Cases.

Waste no more!

OuterSpace Fashion | The Next Big Thing

21 Oct

Belive me when I say, that this is going to be the next big thing!

2012/2013 is going to be all about this trend! And I absolutely ADORE!

You can also see more about this trend in this older post from Fash&Mark

I want them ALL! If you love it too, here it is the best shop I found – Black Milk

What do you think about this new trend?

 

(((The Ticklers)))

18 Oct

 “Combining great shapes and colors with an intimidating amount of power and a choice of speeds and pulsations we are truly something else. They are still Ticklers though, waterproof, made from super-smooth body-safe silicone and very, very quiet. So, still part of the family, just a bit more grown up.”

Still a bit confused about what this is?

Starting by its name it already looks pretty interesting.  The Ticklers is a new brand of Swedish-designed vibrators (Ikea someone?) in which design and concept are put in focus.

Ticklers are charged by USB and they look like a modern design artifact, you can even put it in a shelf in a visible place at home, that no one will ever guess.

 

Do you dare? Visit the website to see more ticklers!

Nature Jewelry | Sarah Hood

7 Oct

It will look great with your tribal or nude style :)

“My work consists of several collections of unique jewelry pieces ranging from very wearable limited edition jewelry to one-of-a-kind sculptural art jewelry. My pieces are a constant exploration of the natural world, both its forms and its materials. I’m drawn to archetypes, those images floating beneath our collective consciousness–a perfect circle, an elongated leaf, a bare tree. I love striking profiles, elegant design, and unexpected combinations of materials. “ Sarah Hood | jewelry artist

This Fall | Mermaid Fashion

5 Sep

So, apparently this Fall mermaids are high fashion!

 

What do you think? Will you dive into this trend?

 

First Ad Written on Hair

21 Jun

“It takes extreme precision to work at this size. ProGlide Gillette finest blades.”

“Our Best work is viewed up close. ProGlide Gillette finest blades.”

Gillette, BBDO (ad agency) and a group of scientists, from University of Nottingham, actually ripped off some strands of hair of an innocent man and wrote an ad on it, like they’re the kings of the world or something.

The ads measure less than 1/10 millimeter and it’s currently pending record-breaking status at Guinness World Records.

This campaign main objective (besides creating an enormous buzz everywhere and being on Guinness) is to emphasize the precision of their new ProGlide razor.

In addition, Gillette placed the carved hairs in men’s airport restrooms with a scannable QR code. Once scanned, guys could see this video and what was written on that hair.

How cool and disgusting is this? Can you imagine a guy going to the restroom at some airport, looking at filthy beard hair on the sink and getting really excited about that? Something like: “wow, some guy’s hair on the sink with QR code, totally not creepy and unusual. I definitely have to scan this thing; it may be a prize on it!!”. WTF Gillette?!?

Anyway, I really like their idea of writing on hair. It’s very creative and a great way to create buzz around the new product. Period!

What about you? What do you think about this?

Exquisite Rings

20 May

I just love huge rings!

Is this going to be trendy?

17 May

Here it is the proof that fashion is back!

My question is: Is this going to be trendy? Will Zara or Asos create their own version of these Penis-Shaped High Heels?

It’s not difficult to guess that these ones are from Gaga!

Zara | Maxi Skirt

11 May

When my eyes met this skirt, I instantly fell in love! (my fave has to be the orange)

Zara why are you always trying to screw my wallet?

Spray Tshirt? What!?

10 May

You probably think that fashion won’t go further than new patterns and new designs. Well, think twice, because revolution is coming!!!

Soon we will be spraying ourselves into everything from t-shirts to hats! How cool is that?

Also this cotton fibers’ liquid can be dissolved and used all over again as you want. So if you’re tired of your shirt you can dissolve it and spray a bikini. It’s awesome!

The liquid dries as soon as it hits the skin, the garment can be taken off, washed and re-worn.

“To show science and technology can help fashion designers, I ended up returning to the principles of the earliest textiles such as felt, which were also produced by taking fibers and finding a way of binding them together without having to weave or stitch.” Dr. Torres, Professor of Particle Technology at Imperial College – creator of Fabrican

Fashionable Biodegradable shoes

27 Apr

OAT shoes had a big concern: Why can’t we have stylish and “green” shoes?

They realized that everyone bought fancy and fashionable sneakers and that was freaking difficult for people to go for greener choices, because the options were hideous!

So they came across with a sexy and green choice. OAT shoes created a new shoe concept that can be buried after use, cause they’re biodegradable!

Ok… the shoes are fancy, the concept is cool, but I would rather prefer the guy on the photos? Can I buy that online? :P

One City, One Perfume

6 Apr

The Scent of Departure is a new brand of perfumes available only on duty-free shops.

Basically the brand was able to capture the scent of five cities: Frankfurt, Budapest, Vienna, Istanbul e Munich. Every bottle of perfume costs 29€ and they’re only available in those five cities’ airports.

Blabla of the brand:

“Who hasn’t dreamt of capturing the scents of a trip and bringing them back home? (me)

The Scent of Departure fragrances capture the essence and spirit of the world’s most vibrant cities in an olfactory memento. (most vibrant cities? Don’t think so)

Voyage from one city to another, fragrance by fragrance.” (And “voyage” by plain too. Or else you won’t get one of these)


The concept was… well kinda cool! But all I can think is: Marketing, marketing, marketing, money and marketing! They will never be able to “capture the essence” of a city! Will NY smell like hotdogs? Will Mexico City smell like Tacos and chilli? Will Paris smell bad? :p

However, maybe this is a better gift than the ugly teddy bears and key chains (I like the mugs!) with the name of the city (cheesy!).

This is just my opinion, but I want to know yours. Would you buy this? Do you like the idea?

WTF?! | Teens be crazy too

5 Apr

Do you think you’ve seen and heard it all? Think again! There’s a new trend (can I call it trend?) between teenagers. Picture a tampon. Now imagine a bottle of vodka. Now mix it all! Hard?

German teenage girls found a new way to get drunk faster and to hide the alcohol breath. They insert tampons soaked in vodka in… well you know where… And boys are also using vodka soaked tampons anally, they call it “butt chugging” or “Butt bongs”

The German police are really worried about this. They’re warning the teens, especially girls, on how bad for them this new type of consumption is – it can damage vaginal walls and increase the risk of infection.

Teens are loving the idea of getting alcohol directly into their bloodstream, avoiding breath, spending a lot of money and drinking all night.
