Tripping to Paradise

Paradise does exist. It’s a tiny little dot laying in the middle of the pacific ocean. Mortals call it Maui, Hawaii. I’m back in town but I left my heart there.
What to do… Life is a beach.
Maui’s beauty is irresistible and our stay at Alejandro’s studios in Haiku- Pauwela was beyond enjoyable. You definitely have to visit the island at least once in your life and if you finally do, check with Alejandro for your accommodation. His profile on Airbnb is found here.
Aloha! 

I Try to Talk to You. Listen. Watch.

More and more fashion houses and online stores realize the power of cinematic art as a way to showcase their collections. Sometimes the results are astonishing.
SSENSE and System Magazine present Hercules & Love Affair’s new video for “I Try To Talk To You” ft. John Grant. Directed by David Wilson and styled by Simon Robins, the video features looks from the Spring collections of Acne Studios, Balmain and T by Alexander Wang.
Speechless. Art and fashion working together to spread emotions. Watch the video, enjoy the music:
Remember Mine All Mine ? The concept is almost the same, although I found I Try to Talk To You powerful beyond measure.
Cute and playful, TheOutnet video for their 5th birthday features some of the hottest gals in fashion and music. Among them, personal favorite, brilliant blogger and Man Repeller, Leandra Medine. You can watch the video and campaign here.
So now that you listened and watched I wait for your comments! x

 

Mine All Mine (video)

“Spring-Summer Pieces Are Brought to Balletic Life in an Interactive [brilliant may I add] Short”. (source: www.nowness.com).
The best combination of two of my favorite subjects: contemporary dance and fashion.
Louis Vuitton, Kenzo, La Perla, Maison Martin Margiela, Bottega Veneta pieces fly and dance along with the performers from London’s Sadler’s Wells Theater.
I am sure many of my friends will appreciate this video. Not only for watching the dancers moving gracefully in their fashionable styles, but also for being able to buy their favorite styles by clicking directly on the shoppable version of the video which can be found here.
 

The Photoshop Beauty (video)

In a brilliant video concept for her song “Nouveau Parfum”, Hungarian singer Boggie is undergoing a virtual make-over with the help of photoshop.  The result is astonishing: The girl of next door is transformed into a beauty goddess, a star, a model. Food for thought: Is this the “perfection” we seek in our everyday lives? And how much stress do we experience trying to reach our utopian goals?

Unsung Lilly is an inspiring pop band from UK. With their music and stance on life Sera, Frankie, Wayne, Allan and Russ, embody many of the values and principles I live by, so it couldn’t but “just be” a love at first sight!

For a little inspiration, here is their song “Just Be” which was released last year…

Mind The Gap (video)

A gap between how we perceive ourselves and how we are perceived by others, is not something uncommon. Here is one of the most smart experiments to prove this scenario happens more often than we think and to a much larger scale than we believe. Although published almost a year ago, I chose to post this Dove documentary because its launch coincides with my birthday and I couldn’t find any better reminder of how we should never underestimate ourselves. The same of course applies for the opposite: never overestimate yourself. In any case, mind the gap.

Simply… AMAZING!

I don’t think I have watched anything like this before. Kevin Richardson, the “lion whisperer” teams up with the GoPro crew and they all take us to the “soft side” of the wild life…

Simply… AMAZING!
