about Pierre Frey/ Chromatropic
Founded in 1935 Maison Pierre Frey now has an archive of some 7,000 wallpaper and fabric designs that demonstrate the house’s commitment to fine craft and rich, hand-drawn pattern work. Design Miami/ collaborates with the luxury textile house for its 10th Anniversary to create Chromatropic, a camouflage inspired print collaged from tropical textiles from the Pierre Frey archive and collection. Chromatropic will provide a celebratory identity with a contemporary Miami flavor for the Basel fair, and will also appear in a capsule collection created by Hentsch Man, a fashion label known for its use of prints. The Hentsch Man anorak, hat and sneakers will be available in limited numbers, alongside a specially produced J. Crew Chromatropic pocket square, at the JUNE-Basel pop-up store within Hall 1 Süd.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY today is MAY FIRST and finally I can show you what we, Michael and I, have been working on the last months. I wanted to make my blog more structured and easier for you to find what you like. hence the title: new look! for that occasion I pulled out my fancy spring dress and celebrated the first day of my NEW BLOG!

umbrella present (from Agata)
fluffy cake present (from Dad and Monika)
in german there is this saying ALLES NEU MACHT DER MAI and that means more or less like MAY GIVES BIRTH TO THE FRUITS OF APRIL’S WET LABOUR and therefore I am more than happy to be able to share with you my new blog. unfortunately the weather outside still looks a lot more like april than may but lets hope for the best and lets welcome SPRING!
at the NARS’ 20th Anniversary in New York
aww, I love this simple and chic black and white look. her blue eyes and red lips stick out beautifully like this. she is wearing 3 essential key pieces:
black skinny jeans
every wardrobe should have these 3 things as they make it so easy to form an outfit around. you can always wear a good pair of black flats with everything. the same with the black skinny jeans – it will always work, either with heels, a blazer or with a cashmere sweater and of course the same with master key piece the white blouse!
ONE YEAR <3 only the best and a lot of amazing fashion – we love your onlineshop! keep up the great work Monika and Alain!
