This is a couple

For the last few years, Parisian brand The Kooples has been featuring real life couples in all of their ad campaigns. Yohji Yamamoto has been doing this for many years. At early july's V&A's Fashion in Motion catwalk event, real London couples modelled menswear and womenswear pieces from the archive of Yohji Yamamoto. So cute! It really adds to the clothes. You can find additional photos here.
Earlier this week I stumbled upon two books by Miroslav Sasek, This is Paris and This is Venice. His children's books with illustrations from the 50's, 60's and 70's are very beautiful & detailed and fancy a witty sense of humour. As Mr. Sasek died in 1980 without leaving an heir, the copyright situation of his work is currently unclear. Royalties from reissues are being held in a special fund until the copyright owner has been identified.
Another gem created for children is the Dutch project Big Art for Little People. This is an audiovisual picture book which teaches young children (2-6 y/o) something about the formal language of the visual arts through short artistic movies. Watch one of the videos here. Or download part 1 or part 2 of the book in English.
And the last precious pick is by Guillemette Lanthiez (a French interior designer) who aspires to create a living form of architecture. She creates amazing ceiling mobiles for individuals or visual merchandising under the very poetic name of Les ailes s'en mêlent.
