as every year it was a blast to be invited by VITRA for the summerparty during ART BASEL. look at the lovely decoration – so nice! there was cool music and lots of nice art and design to see. there are many different buildings inside the VITRA campus, the newest is by SANA. my favorite one is the showroom by HERZOG & DE MEURON but I also like the one by TADAO ANDO. this years entry badge was a piece of fabric that the tied around our wrists. a nice idea but so far the metall bands were my favorite – I still have them and collected the different colors from other friends that were there.
the food was delicious and there was a nice vegetarian alternative. my favorite was the couscous salad – mmmhhhmm, can I please have one more?! and the ice cream was a touch of heaven on earth too bad I did not check by whom the catering was..
I dunno if you can remember but a couple of years ago there was a bug attack during VITRA PARTY and I was telling some friends about that and literally 5 minutes later the first bug was there and he was followed by friends. I jinxed it 🙂 sorry for that but again it was fun to see all the people hide and run from the almost blind flying bugs.. after one hour the bugs were gone, ouff!
all the friends in the house – eehm at the VITRA PARTY!
thank you Wilpert, Mo, Cristian, Esther and Fleur – it was super nice!
thomas visited the exhibition and the lecture of the architect DANIEL LIBESKIND. as he is an architect it was really nice to have his view on that topic. the lecture was called “my visions”. DANIEL LIBESKIND informed about the visions and ideas behind different projects and how he approaches the different fields involved. he also had a rather unconventional start into architecture as he first studied music and therefore has a different access to form and design. thomas really liked the way he talked about his ideas and visions and the fact that he also involved music in the jewish museum, one of DANIEL LIBESKIND most famous project. the exhibition showed nice objects in unconventional and complex ways meaning not always in the classy way: poster and model but were made with attention to detail and work.
«architecture is not based on concrete and steel and the elements of the soil. It’s based on wonder. and that wonder is really what has created the greatest cities, the greatest spaces that we have had.» DANIEL LIBESKIND
so besides the cool names with musical memories I want to tell you a little bit about the products.
#JUST A PERFECT DAY 89 CHF
a daily moisturizer without SPF for normal to dry skin
it smells very similar to some of the WELEDA products
so nothing fancy – a rather natural fragrance. I liked it but I would not repurchase it at the moment as I really need SPF in my moisturizer for summer.
#LETS SPEND THE NIGHT TOGETHER 59 CHF
a rosa mosqueta collagen boost facial oil for normal to dry skin
I am a huge fan of facial oils and can directly compare it to the KIEHLS
midnight recovery concentrate which I like better because of the smell.
#HUNGRY EYES 79 CHF
a moringa nutritive eye repair cream for normal to dry skin
it can be used all around the eye area and it feels super soft but still
moisturized. I love it and this is also my favorite product out of the 3.
oylous.com a very simple and nice swiss skincare brand with lovely packaging and amazing names for the products were so kind to give away a HUNGRY EYES eye cream to one of my followers/readers.
BEYONCÉ will be the new H&M summer campaign face..
I m not really sure if this is the best decision that H&M has ever made.. No offense she is a very talented singer but to be honest I dont see her wearing H&M clothes..
she is too posh for that.. anyway – I m looking forward to summer 2013!
