Coffeeklatch

Coffeeklatch is run by Magali Elali and Bart Kiggen who have what they call “creative chitchat” with interesting creative entrepreneurs in their homes or daily working environments. Coffeeklatch means ‘slow journalism using a fast medium’. i particularly loved their interview with garden designers Bart & Pieter.

Green is the new black. Just ask Bart Haverkamp and Pieter Croes who turned their love for nature into a beautiful profession. With their green thumbs they are able to create a unique environment, with the garden as their playground. We meet up for coffee in their loft and atelier, which is really a stunning green and quiet oasis in the city. In the afternoon we head off to their holiday home in the countryside. It’s not surprising to state that green is the red thread in their lives, for nature is everywhere.

Natargeorgiou

i’m really taken by the beautiful and interesting textures from the Natargeorgiou winter collection by greek cypriot designers Dimos Natar and Andreas Georgiou. the first dress looks like the ocean on a starry night.

Bon Boutique

really enjoyed flipping through this kind of Georgie O’Keefe-esque, Frida Kahlo-ish lookbook photographed by Kate Edmundson for Tucson based shop Bon Boutique. thanks to Jen for pointing me in the right direction.

Game of Givenchy

i haven’t really been paying attention to the fall 2012 couture shows, not until Kristina tweeted that the Givenchy collection must have drawn some inspiration from Game of Thrones. I’m actually surprised that Hamish Bowles didn’t mention that in his review, even though there was an entirely direwolf-like dog present. so, you know, i just couldn’t help myself.
