Loving on Instagram #2

>>While you read (click)<<Ā 

A few posts ago, I shared with you some of my favorite instagram accounts, and you seemed to like it very much.
So I decided to share some others pictures that I have been loving while scrolling down on my instagram.
I kept a very natural palette for this selection. Hope you like it šŸ™‚

PARIS DESIGN WEEK 2014

Paris-Design-Week-2014

As some of you may know already, I am coming back to Paris where I grew up, in order to continue my studies in International Business.

This city may have some down sides, but one cannot deny that everything happens in Paris (or almost!). So from now on, many reviews and posts will be about French brands, restaurants, exhibitions, hiddens places, among many others.

Last weekend, I was at the Paris Design Week which happens once a year and aims to bring a broader audience to different designers, their work, studios, workshops, but also to secret bars and restaurants.

Unfortunetely I was outside of the country and only came back the last day of the Design Week. I went to the CitƩ de la Mode et du Design (City of Fashion and Design) and saw a very nice exhibition full of very talented creators.

All pieces were gorgeous and very interesting but I have to confess I had two main crushes:

TOUTALENVERS by Gregory Saraceni –Ā Loved how original this was. Basically his whole collection is about upside down cups, mugs, plates, that you can drink/eat in. Ā I was so puzzled when I first looked at his work! This is pure genius!

ECHOES byĀ Charlotte JuilĀ­lard – Let’s not even talk about the quality of these speakers that looked more than perfect. Now should we say something about this sleek design? I don’t even think so. White ceramic and leather details?. Perfection.

Shout out to these wonderful artists and all the others that were presenting their work there and who have done an amazing job.

Also, I loved how the whole event was organized. You could whether follow a map and detailed circuits with all the details you needed, or just go your way.

In any case some of these spots were temporarily open for the Design week but others are just nice addresses to keep in mind to wander around!

I really hope you enjoyed this kind of more “in the field” post.

I have more of these planned with more pictures that I personally took.

Let me know what you would like to see next!

DIY – Spice up your Sweater!

Today’s Song!

Hey guys!

How are you doing?

I realized that it’s been a while since the last time I posted a DIY activity. Today I give you a few suggestions to customize your sweaters!
These pics are from Pinterest so, you may have seen them already. I really hope this post can inspire you though. šŸ˜‰

You should know I’m SUPER obsessed with sweater with these huge letters! I think it is so cool to have the first letter of your name right there – BAM!
I actually made some sweaters like that ( I don’t have any pics yet because I have to finish sewing them – but they came out really nicely.) The way I proceeded to create those sweaters was to print out the letter that I wanted. Size: As big as you can in a A4 page format. Font: I personnaly used this one, you only have to download it and then type on Microsoft Word, the letter you want to print out.
After you printed out, cut it. That pattern will guide you to cut out the letter on a felt material that you can find in any craft store. Once you have it, place it wherever you want on the sweater and sew! I don’t really advice you to glue it because I don’t think it will last after washing etc.
Please send me pics on my facebook page if you try it or if you already have done one! I’m so curious to see and get inspired by you guys! šŸ˜€

These two sweaters have very nice animal print details on them. I really think these are great spots to add a little something to your sweater. It can be beads, pearls, sequins, studs… or just another piece of fabric. Maybe from some other clothes that you don’t use? Have a look, New Year is a great moment to clean and organize all your closet! šŸ˜‰

I found this picture surfing on Pinterest and you can see the whole tutorial here. I think this combination of little details gives a tribal touch to the sweater which I love!

I hope you found this useful or at least that it inspired you a little bit and made your day a little bit brighter.

Thank you for all your support and your very nice New Year wishes!

XOXO,

P&F
