Wandering through the internet early this morning, I stumbled across this image and thought I should share it with you all. Two pieces by fabulous Japanese designer Limi Feu, I love the textural contrasts and monochrome palette...we may take inspiration from it when designing future collections.
She started her label in 2000 and showed her clothes at Tokyo Fashion Week between 2000 and 2007. She made her Paris Fashion Week debut in October 2007 and was greeted with praise from fashion critics and fashionistas alike .Limi Feu has a wonderful array of designs definitely worth checking out, visit the site: HERE

Solar powered sounds....

Spotted this while at Sziget festival over in Budapest- great city and great festival.

A hungarian designer had created this quirky musical ensemble made from discarded tins and miscellaneous rubbish, and combined with strings and bells. Each one had a solar panel with a bulb above it, as the bulbs trigger on and off an eerie yet beautiful sound....a little treat to stumble upon.
