A new beginning! Get new inspiration by reading this article by Lidewij Edelkoort, the trendwatcher!
BLOOM has his own exhibition in Toulouse, France till the end of february; Bloom, une vision végétale. I’m a great fan of Lidewij Edelkoort, she a strong and succesful women, I would love to work with her someday. BLOOM is one off the most inspiring trend magazines/books and will give you information about the new developments and trends. It’s a very colorful and innovative book; definitely worth buying!!
Too bad the exhibition is in Toulouse. I would have loved to go and be inspirerd!!! Maybe next time in Holland?
Lidewij Edelkoort created Heartwear in 1993 together with a group of stylist friends. Heartwear is a non-profit association that encourage handcraft. They work together with astisans to create their products. The product will be shipped over worldwide. What makes this non-profit organisation so special is that they want to show the skills, knowledge, culture and environment of the region the products are made. I want to show you the indigo textiles they made with artisans in Benin. They are so beautiful!!Beautiful handmade textiles by Heartwear Marie TailleferHeartwear was at Merci’ s shop in Paris for a beautiful installation called “UNIVERSAL BLUE”
To get a new perspective on the world, Li Edelkoort made a prognose about birds. Birds are the source of inspiration, with their interesting behaviour patterns previewing the society of man. People have to get a different and positieve look on live.
The pictures are made for autumn/winter 2011-2012
