Rita Ora - R.I.P. ♬

I leave for London today, waahoo! I am extremely exited. I have been to various airports within London but I never had the opportunity to explore the city. Currently, listening to this song because London is in fact the lovely Ms. Rita Ora's home city. It also makes last minute packing a lot more enjoyable! 

FuoriSalone: Mila Schön collaboration with Ennio Calabria

During Design week, the fashion house, featured this lovely work of art (as shown below) by Ennio Calabria. The formulation of collaborative efforts between fashion houses and artists is becoming seemingly more common which isn't all the surprising considering both are  distinctive forms of art!

Enrico Coveri event: kitchen collection

Enrico Coveri Living collaborates with the brand Aster Cucine and well-known Italian artist, Massimo Sansavini to create this one-of-a-kind , pop-art style  kitchen. The focal point of this new kitchen conceptualization is contemporary creativity and a little bit of imagination. You can recognize the signature color usage from past collections of clothing transferred into the new living collection. The design is very clean, simple, and yet entirely au courant. 

REPLAY water-free laser wash jeans

Replay is pushing the limitations with this new denim evolution. The distressed appearance is achieved by hand and then later treated with a laser wash. The 'eco-sustainable ozone wash' is  an incredibly innovative approach and drastically cuts down on the amount of water used during the process.  

Virtually this process will have no negative impact on the environment. So for all of you out there seeking high-quality eco-friendly jeans, now you found them!

Kartell 'Design Rocks' event with Philippe Starck & Lenny Kravitz

Kartell, international renowned brand, collaborates with the acclaimed designer Philippe Starck and the well-known super star Lenny Kravitz

The rock star and his design team referred to as 'Kravitz Design' produced an exclusive line called  'Mademoiselle'; a collection comprised of six different chairs for Kartell.  After the initial vision, Philippe Starck assisted Lenny in the process and shed a new light on the concept of material usage. 

I was particularly excited about Lenny's guest appearance as well, primarily because I recently saw the film, The Hunger Games. I felt that his role was incredibly eminent and his performance was exceptional. Not to mention, at the mere age of 10, the song 'Again' was a  sure tune you could always catch me humming.
