{1. and 2. The Letter Clutch by Kindred Holiday  3. and 4. The Carrier}


Hello everyone, the last time Moop was on Bloesem we showed you their new waxed canvas bags. Now who got themselves one? This time bringing Moop back for the holiday season with these favorite items in delicious rosewood. The Carrier would be a personal favorite because of its size and many compartments for an easy travel. The Letter Clutch would be a nice addition for a casual clutch. These would make perfect gifts, as you know girls will always appreaciate a nice bag.

Hellen van Berkel is a textile designer living in the Netherlands. The images you see here are part of a whole series featured in the October issue of Dutch magazine VTWonen. Her place is amazing and I totally understand why VTWonen liked to feature her. 

What I really like in Hellen her home are the colors. She has a talent for combining different colors, perfect tones. When I see the floor in the kitchen below I would never have thought about choosing these tcolored tiles, but the look superb! Making this kitchen special and I believe easy to maintain.

Perhaps best to send VTWonen an email if you would like to see the issue.

La Casita de Wendy is back in the spotlight with their Winter Collection “montañas” Reminds us a little of a winter fairytale .... this collection does have a magical feel to it. We love the bold colors and the retro feel. La casita de wendy are a genius in making beautiful patterns, the ones on the scarves and posters are by far our favorite :) 

We at Bloesem also love  ‘The Crafters Project’ section. On their blog you’ll be able to check out new unique items designed for La Casita de Wendy.

Take time looking through their website they do have a lot to look at from accessories, kids stuff and even housewares. That’s where you will find all the pillows. ~ sponsor spotlight

Zelda Beauchampet has a jewelry line ‘The Boyscouts’. What a fun name for a jewelry line don’t you think? How does she incorporate scouting with jewelry? She says it’s the idea of the “survival of the finest.”

Irene had posted pictures of her first collection, and I can tell you that we both love it.  I definitely love the simplicity of jewelry. Its fun, its colorful and uniquely designed. I haven’t seen anything like it so far here in Kuala Lumpur.

My favorites from this collection are the necklaces especially ‘The Boyscouts-Synthesis.’

Zlda-boyscout

Introducing the new Boyscouts, this time with a more classic look and less color. Handcrafted in mostly sterling silver and gold, this collection is more evening wear I would say. Very elegant compared to the more playful look of the first boyscout collection.

Two stood out to me. The ‘Anchor’ printed scarf also comes with a gold-filled tube. You can be creative accessorizing it as a headband or a neck scarf. The other would be my first purchase, ‘The Apparatus’ is a set of 3 leather bags. Perfect for an evening out which includes a make-up mirror, wooden comb, a little wallet for credit cards or money, and a bigger pouch for your phone and keys. Truly the survival kit!

World Map by Julie Marabelle for ISSEY MIYAKE

Issaymiyake

While writing this post this morning about Famille Summerbelle's new collection the Performers ... I discovered that founder and paper cut artist Julie Marabelle collaborated with fashion icon and designer Issey Miyake from Japan for their Pleats Please range.

The items of the WORLD MAP series from Famille Summerbelle are used as printes for a whole range of clothes and home accessoiries. Isn't that very impressive! according to Issey Miyake the world map series vividly express that all aspects of the world, such as people, animals, plants, nature, and buildings, live together on this earth.

World Skin Colors by Reineke Otten

Reineke-otten

Today I start with Reineke Otten and her amazing World Skin Colors carves. The silk scarves are printed digatilly with not just a nice looking patteren. Reineke has studied and interperated data for the last couple of years and litterly spend 4 months working with excel sheets resulting in these patterns.

For a designer working in the field of visual sociology Reineke's goal is to to reveal society’s patterns and orders — and occasionally, to generate beauty by recording and assembling images and information. Each scarve shows a graphic for a particular country ... 200 in total. 

"imagine people as color pixels. Flying over the world, you would look down and see . . . what? Our planet is an unstable composition of complexions: through migration, intermarriage, cosmetics, war, trains, planes, and automobiles, the ‘view from above’ of the earth’s skin tones is in a continuous state of evolution."

One day this beautiful looking one-of-a-kind lady came to Reineke to the tuttobene booths at NYIGF and expressed her awe and love for Reinke's scarves ... you can probably imagine who much fun we all had and of course were intrigued by this colorful person. 

Turn demographic data into a visual language and then into fashion... World Skin Colors
