Fashion-History In Paper

Isabelle de Borchgrave @ Palazzo Medici Riccardi / Firenze from Artenews on Vimeo.

Isabelle de Borchgrave is a fantastic artist from Brussels. She is known for her stunning historical costumes made of paper. Together with the Canadian costume-designer Rita Brown, she designed and produced costumes which cover 300 years of fashion-history. This exhibition "Papiers a la Mode" opened in France in 1998 and has since travelled the world.

At the moment you can see her creations at the "Musées d’Art et d’Histoire du Cinquantenaire" in Brussels, until the 18th of April 2010.

And at the moment an exhibition at MoMA in NYC, until April 26 2010.

The Bob

I love this hair-cut! It's simple and classic, but also sexy and mysterious... Agyness Deyn

I Carry Your Heart With Me

Jewelry by the dutch design-group TJEP.

i carry your heart with me
(i carry it in my heart) i am never without it
(anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

-E.E. Cummings-
