For all Vivienne Westwood fans out there, here’s a great opportunity to have your home in iconic Westwood-style. The great British designer has cooperated with the company Cole & Sons to create a collection of wallpaper, with prints from her previous fashion collections. The fabulous result:
The Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son wallpapers are all based on signature designs from her fashion collections such as the iconic ‘Squiggle’ print from the Autumn-Winter 1981/1982 ‘Pirate collection’ and the more recent ‘Cut-Out Lace’ from the Spring-Summer 2007 ‘I am Expensiv’ collection.
Some examples of the prints:
‘Absence of Rose’: a print that first appeared in a recent collection of Westwood’s knitwear
‘Squiggle’: taken from Westwood’s A/W 82 Pirate collection
‘Magnolia’: inspired by a paper cut-out design, executed in a very small scale, then used as a print on silk and wool in subsequent fashion collections
‘Cut-out Lace’: from the Spring/Summer 2007 ‘I am Expensiv’ collection
‘Paper jewellery’: inspired by the jewellery from Westwood’s Autumn/Winter 2001 collection, made entirely from paper, based on technical drawings of royal jewellery
Available from Liberty, John Lewis and Heal’s.
I’ve fallen in love with the Spring 2010 collection of Los Angeles brand Geronimo. The little jackets and shorts are so pretty! No connection with native American Indians, thank god! Geronimo is the middle name of designer Jenny Reyes. For years she traveled the country with bands like Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis with The Watson Twins, designing the latter’s now iconic stage outfits they wore on the 2006 world tour for the album Rabbit Fur Coat. The collection is about clothes that are sexy and playful but with a sophisticated nod to the well tailored vintage pieces that inspired her. The Spring 2010 collection is her second. Before Geronimo Jenny was an intern at, surprisingly, Rodarte.
Tonight, at 22.50 h tv-station Canvas will show the documentary “Tempo of a Restless Soul” about the ultimate Belgium sexgod, also know as Tom Barman, frontman of dEUS. Well, actually I don’t know if he’s truly a sexgod, famous people are used to being adored so they don’t need to excel in bed, right? Anyway, the documentary follows Tom during two years, around the period of the release of dEUS-albums “Pocket Revolution” and “Vantage Point”. So no sex, but his mother will appear in the documentary…..(?) Must see for dEUS fans like myself!
“Tempo of a Restless Soul” is made by Manu Riche and Renaat Lambeets and will air on the 16th december 2009 at 22.50 h on Belgium tv-channel Canvas.
