Just watched the trailer for Matt Wolf’s “Teenage” and it looks like such an interesting and also thought-provoking movie. A mix of rare archival material, filmed portraits and 20th century diary entries it deals with the coming of age in a historical and cultural context.
“Before the ‘Teenager’ was invented, there was no second stage of life. You were either a child or you went to work as an adult. At the turn of the century, child labor was ending, ‘adolescence’ was emerging, and a struggle erupted between adults and youth. Would the young be controlled and regimented, or could they be free?” (Soda Pictures)
Lovely little film about the intricate and meticulous work that goes into hand binding a book.
Wow, this is almost worth a trip if you’re interested in rare retail design. As Vogue UK’s Jo Ellison reports:
“Is it worth it? [the opening was long time due] Pfffft. Don’t be vulgar. Naturally enough, the resulting store is as elegant and thoughtfully desirable as the stealth luxe aesthetic Philo has so successfully nurtured in her collections. Minimal, but not without colour, nor unexpected texture, the simple facade, veiled by a translucent rose-pink resin screen, invites customers into a 300 sq m “selling area”, demarcated by dividing walls clad in clear marmorino plaster and floored with a seeming parquetry of 6,000 multicoloured marble tiles inlaid with semi-precious stones.”

Beautiful boxes found in House of Waris‘ selection of rare objects. “Nardi, a traditional Venetian family business started in the 1920s, gained recognition as a first class jeweler thanks to their artisan techniques inspired by the work of 18th century Venetian goldsmiths and use of exquisite raw materials. Nardi jewelry and silverware are still made today in the artisan workshop behind Venice’s Piazza San Marco.”
We love these hoop gold earrings with resin corals by Aurélie Biedermann.
This is the new AF AGGER-FLACHS campaign we art directed for the supertalented upcoming designers Kathrine Agger & Nanna Flachs. We are so in love with their ‘Hunting for Love’ collection. The moss-coloured towelling fabrics and the genius quilted outerwear is just what what we need for autumn. For the campaign we worked with the classy team Hasse Nielsen / photography & Cim Mahony / hair and Marie Thomsen / make up. The amazing and beautiful Charlie Bredal posed with the best energy ever!
