Long.. Long Time

Yes! It happened! I let my blog go. Shame on me! But I have an excuse, I really do. I was a tiny bit busy mixed with a little splash of laziness. To keep a long story short, here is a fast compilation of what I have been doing so far:

- I entered myself in TV show for designers and won (yes, strange isn't it)
- Went to Berlin to visit a girl I hardly new, and it was great!
- Started to sketch again
- My new goal in life is to go to L.A. for a little while
- I have been host writing for Few Kids On The Block and I am going to be a guest blogger for Steve and Charlie while Charlie takes a little vacation
- I dyed my hair green
- Started a TUMBLR that is basically my baby right now (next to this blog, I promise)
- Fell in love with A$AP ROCKY
- Found out I know more about music then I thought
- Took matching tattoos (Ace of Spades) together with my best friend Didi
- I finally started to update my portfolio

Pfff, I have to catch my breath...

Well below you can see a short compilation of these few months that I have been gone.

Feel Blue? Wear Your Favo Shoe(s)!

I haven't been blogging on a regular basis lately... Inspiration is lacking and I think I reached a point in my life (how dramatic! I know...) that I really don't know what I'm doing. I haven't been into anything lately, so the question is... What do I want to do now????? Travel? Yes please! Sitting behind my desk? No thanks! I have ants in my...(thought I was gonna say pants didn't ya?!) feet! Candy, yes Candy!, in my heels! Need to get on with it. No regrets when I'm old and pruny! But till that day, I'll just wear my feel good shoes, listen to 'Canned heat' by Jamiroquai and paint my nails in all the colors of the rainbow every other day (strange, but hey! I can be)...

Stay sweet and loveable people!

Ipantone Cases

We love the collaboration between Pantone and Case Scenario! I have been working with Pantone colors for the last 8 years and that is the only book I have been 'reading' on a regular basis (does this say allot about me?...Hope not).

For the iPhone 4, there are nine colors ranging from the deep Pantone Blue 7462 to the juicy Pantone Pink 226. For the iPad, the colors are Pantone Black, Pantone Cool Grey, Pantone Blue 7462 and Pantone Red 711.

Miss Van & Anaoana

Don't you just love it when two great artists combine their creativity? Well I do! Miss Van & Anaoana did just that.

Miss Van is a graffiti/street artist who is known for her sensual characters (poupées as they are called) and Anaoana a is a fashion designer from Barcelona. Together they started Miss Van & Anaoana a few years ago, and this label started growing since then. And no wonder! The colorful, erotic and voluptuous characters mixed with the soft and delicate designs from Anaoana are a match made in heaven (as they might say).

Their new collection called 'Oddities' is a mix of all that. It's playful and sensual at the same time. The 'poupées' from Vanessa Alice B. (Miss Van's real name) work as well on these delicate designs as they do on the rough stone walls she usually creates these characters on. And even though this collection has just been released, I can't wait for their next creative endeavor!

Rie Hosokai Balloon Couture

Every designer has a few basics they 'need' to get started... Like needles, thread, fabrics and so on. But Japanese designer Rie Hosokai shows us another way of thinking outside of the box, or balloon?
Hosokai began her career as a florist before venturing into the world of balloon art and starting her own company, Daisy Balloon.

She twists and turns all the balloons to create a garment-yes a real life wearable garment- that looks strong and vulnerable at the same time. Why balloons? Yes, that's what I was wondering about too.

Rie Hosokai: “There are latitude and longitude balloons to be woven together, so it’s quite similar to fabric”...

Beautiful! But such a shame that every dress doesn't last more than 24 hours...

Hosokai constructs each piece by hand. Although the materials are inexpensive—about 9 cents per balloon—each featherweight (and biodegradable) creation carries a price tag ranging from $1,930 to $3,860.
