GEOMETRY AT WORK: MISTER ZIMI

Mister Zimi is a Bali-based label founded in 2007. I love that the brand combines modern Australian design with beautiful Balinese influences but in this collection, it’s the pineapple motif that had me at hello. So yes, you can say that it’s a “pineapple crush”.

MARIMEKKO FASHION S/S 2013

Because every week should start with good vibes, I’m sharing with you these fun photos from Finnish brand Marimekko . According to its creative director, Marimekko’s designs showcase a whole range of emotions – joy, relaxed, energetic, even silent and brooding – that are combined in interesting, surprising ways. In short, the goal is to integrate contradictory feelings in each concept. Mission accomplished, designers. I look at these pictures, and I feel calm and bubbly at the same time. How is that possible? Only the Marimekko squad knows.

CALIFORNIA SUN: MANGO KIDS S/S 2013

The wait is over! Less than two months after announcing the start of a children’s line, Mango Kids finally unveiled today its maiden collection for ages 3 to 12 years old. It is accompanied by a lookbook called California Sun, which, to be honest, surprised me a bit because it had nothing to do with the charming Street Kids campaign that went with the soft launch last May. (I personally loved the concept of showing children doing ordinary things with their parents. I like the message.) Although the styling here is cute, I was hoping to see more elements from the Street Kids photos like Miako and Naomi in tulle skirts. Or at least smiling faces. I mean, is it just my imagination or do the new models look unhappy?
