LET'S CELEBRATE! POPPIN BOTTLES AND BALLOONS WITH KOONS




Artist Jeff Koons and fancy champagne brand Dom Perignon have joined bubbly forces to create a 2 foot tall mini version of Koons' 'Venus of Willendorf' sculpture. 
 Richard Geoffrory, Dom's "chef de cave" (and the other dude in the pics) said “to be honest, this particular vintage, specific vintage rosé 2003, will remain historic. It sounds very solemn, but I’m telling you it’s that important,” he said. “It’s about as bold, as provocative...as full bodied, intense, sensuous as can be." 
The history of the champers may not be as important as the inspiration for the statue, which was a  sensuous fertility totem found around 25,000 years ago and is said to be one of the first representations of the human and female form. Dom Perignon and Koons have managed to bring all this wonderful history into the 21st century with their collaboration. 
The mini statue comes pregnant with the Vintage 2003 Rose "nestled in its belly" and retailing for a cool $20,000 I will happily accept this instead of the standard balloon/champagne birthday gift.

PRADA SPRING/SUMMER 2013 WOMEN'S ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN

Prada does it again. Visually stunning. Emotive. A  subtle, moving narrative that explains the collection better than I have ever seen. 
Adore.

PLASTERED






X marks the spot

I couldn't resist with this title. It's not everyday someone makes your mug into wallpaper!

Salon X is located in Paddington, Sydney and is part of the amazing Valonz group that make me presentable every few weeks.

I was asked when this wallpaper was printed if I wanted a roll...(which I politely declined as I think I would get a few odd looks from visitors if my face was slapped all over my bathroom) but it certainly works well here! Go and book in some time with the incredible team there by clicking here. They also do the BEST facials in the city. Click here and speak to Gabriella. (see pic 4 for the stunning beauty room).

PRADA SPRING/SUMMER 2011 WOMEN'S ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN


Ummmm Prada who are you? I love this new side of you.
It's like a  20's flapper meet a 60's revolutionary/ surrealist chick and they went to a dance party and I JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH. 

PRADA SPRING/SUMMER 2012 WOMEN'S ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN



I recently discovered the glory that is a Prada Campaign Video.
Short film has come a long way recently and many fashion houses and brands are extending their influence into the moving medium. Its a great way to show the moving aesthetic and I welcome it wholeheartedly.
What genius! I think the first comment under this video is quite true...however this rendition of 50's marvel certainly entertains and shows me a side of Prada I never knew.
I will be uploading more of my fav campaign videos in the coming weeks. Check them out.
