thank you very much for inviting me to the BAUHAUS-INSPIRED DESIGN event at the HUGO BOSS store in Basel. It was super nice to meet the Hugo Boss Team and I got to see lots and lots of nice pieces from the fall/winter collection and also some really nice pieces from the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection.
the food and beverages were very nicely served and tasted delicious. the water was served in those fancy vintage water dispensers, I have no clue what the correct term for that is. in case you know please leave a comment below. I heard that they were especially rented from a collector just for that very event. I had a very tasty refreshing home made lemonade, a seasonal mushroom soup and delicious chocolate, that I never thought I would like as it was made with olive oil. I was really happy that I was brave enough to try it – I think I had at least three or four pieces. it was delicous, big UP for the catering from ZH!
so a couple of weeks ago I was invited to see the mechanical ballet and the new BAUHAUS exhibition at the VITRA design museum. in case you wanna know more about it click here >>
today I had a look at the catalogue of the exhibition and I saw lots of nice things. the book is also great to present heels, check out those gorgeous blue heels – they are to die for!
now these are some of the pieces that I like from the current fall/winter collection. I totally like the powdery wool winter coat, the red dress from the window and my biggest favorite: the blue heels.
and now lets talk about the gorgeous fall/winter capsule collection by JASON WU for BOSS WOMEN. there were some of the pieces in the shop to have a look at, unfortunately this collection will not be sold in Basel. but I m sure that the ladies who wanna buy something from this collection, they will find a way to get it in a shop that sells it : ) more about the shops and where to find the collection on the HUGO BOSS website.
these two pieces are inspired by ANNI ALBERS the famous german/american textile artist and printmaker. the skirt and the coat are very much related to a carpet that ANNI once designed. JASON WU designed the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection and they found an italian family business that made the tweed for them. another stunning piece are the black, grey, orange boots EMERALD BOOTIE F with a very special detail on the heel that I unfortunately forgot to capture but you can see them here >> I was only able to find the black and white ones but you can really see the nice detail on the heel.
thank you for the give away – I love it and I just made some space on my coffee table. it is indeed the perfect coffee table book. that was it from the event in Basel. X
I really hope I can buy these beautiful shoes in switzerland for SPRING SUMMER 2014! I met Lina and Lucia and they told me that their shop will soon be online! So that’s awesome news for us ladies who love fancy flat shoes! so what I can tell you from what I saw at CAPSULE is that there will be a lot of shiny metallic pastel colors next SPRING SUMMER 2014 and I am so happy about that – my favourite colors and materials!
my two must-have pieces from CARMELINAS are the blue/violette metallic wedges and magenta metallic loafers!
