Neil Krug's psychedelic imagery

I just can't have enough of Neil Krug's photographs. They are just my type.
Perfect colour palettes, dreamy textures... and goddess Joni Harbeck posing in some of them!

Olyva by Las Coleccionistas

Today is the first day of my Blackberry Detox Program -scary!!- :/
Decided it's time to disconnect from 24/7 e-mails and so.
Now I feel a little bit more bohemian ;)

These pictures are from Olyva's Spring-Summer'09 collection photographed by Las Coleccionistas.
Summertime a la barcelonesa!

Fashion scans and no internet at home

Here some fashion images I've scanned from a book I'm reading...
I won't be posting daily for a while as I have no internet connection at home thanks to France Telecom and their awful customer service.
Hope next week everything is fixed and back on track. Meanwhile I'm uploading this post from the washing machine at my kitchen, the only place where I can reach a little bit of some neighbour's wi-fi.
Have a great weekend ;)

Aqui van unos scans de un libro de la historia de la moda que estoy leyendo...
No postearé estos días muy seguido ya que el grupo France Telecom nos ha dejado sin acceso a internet mientras cambiamos de Orange a Ya.com. Sin comentarios...
Espero la semana que viene todo vuelva a la normalidad y poder postear a diario de nuevo.
De momento estoy subiendo esto gracias a un poco de wi-fi prestado al que se tiene acceso encima de la lavadora de mi cocina gracias a algún vecino generoso con un nodo abierto.
Feliz fin de semana ;)

Starstyling

Starstyling is a super contemporary fashion design shop in Berlin.
Love the clothes, love the "jungle touch" on the interior design, the colours...
Starstyling-3

Starstyling-1

Starstyling-2
When I went to the shop it made me remember of my first time in the city. I went to visit a friend and we ended with some friends in a backyard buying rock-star inspired bracelets from a couple while a DJ was spinning electronic records, people were relaxing and enjoying the afternoon while drinking fresh beer. Was it 2004? Or 2005?
I still have that bracelet, it's been my "key-wristlet" for years, it's by Starstyling.

Cassete Tape wallets

Last week received an email from Greta and Isla, two finnish designers who have designed wallets from cassette tapes.
They want me to ask you how much would you pay for these beautiful recycled wallets...

Someone said 20€? Make your bids and tell them.

Picture yourself on a peaceful and magnificent Mexican beach landscape...
It’s summer, someone offers you a sweet and fresh Margarita de Tamarindo.
You feel great, oh yeah.
But what are you wearing?
