Lena Corwin’s Made by Hand

Made by Hand is a beautiful book from illustrator/graphic designer Lena Corwin.
She invited some friends/artists to take part in this DIY book.
You learn how to create tie-dye fabrics, accessories & decor items.
It has been published in 2013 and includes incredible collection of projects with a community of creators as Shabd Simon-Alexander, Jennifer Sarkilahti, Caitlin Mociun, Ilana Kohn…
I wish I have enough time to follow all the lessons, but my favorites are : screen-printing/ stamping techniques, embroidery and tie & dye techniques.

WHITE

Happy Monday everyone !
This week is a very sunny week in Paris, and I’ll go to Amsterdam on Thursday.
I cant’ wait, Amsterdam is so beautiful !
When the weather is that good, I love to wear white, blue, creme, beige, soft linen & cotton.
Here’s my inspiration today : designer Alice Waese‘s interview from Waiting for Saturday.

NORWEGIAN WOOD

.
This movie is an adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s novel.
The movie was released in 2010, directed by Tran Anh Hung.
The story takes place in is set in Tokyo during the late 1960s.
Toru loves two young women : Naoko, who is unstable and Midori who is quite the opposite.
The photography, the set and the colors give the movie an impression of quiet, peaceful ambiance, even if what happen is not.
Tran worked directly with Murakami as he helped with the first draft of the screenplay.
A must-see.

REGRETS…

There are some clothes I regret I didn’t bought.
I’m still thinking about these beautiful pieces, years after the collections !
Now, when I have an obsession, I don’t hesitate to buy it (in sale most of the time).

OLSEN STYLE

I ♥ Ashley & Mary-Kate’s style.
They are style icons and know how to wear casual clothes better than anyone.
Even when the clothes are simple, they always have a “plus” : a big scarf, black heels or nice flats (loafers, ballerinas or sandals).
I love the neutral palette of their colors.

SIRI THORSON

Siri Thorson is a writer/stylist/grower of flowers.
She’s living in San Juan Islands, what give me the impression this place is one of the most beautiful on earth.
Artist Jill Bliss also lives there. Maybe they know each other !
It seems the perfect balance between nature, woods, sea, animals, good quality of life…
I love Siri’s flower work but also her style.
Pics from her Instagram and from Amy Merrick‘s (I’d love to interview her! In fact, I want that kind of life !).
