Lesenswert - Das Welthemd!

Das Prinzip von H&M: Das gleiche T-Shirt für alleDer Modekonzern H&M tritt gegen Ausbeutung ein. Und doch verkauft er Kleidung für ein paar Euro. Wie kann das sein? Eine Suche nach dem Geheimnis des billigen T-Shirts.

Wie kann ein Unternehmen gut sein und zugleich so billige T-Shirts verkaufen?
Es gibt jemanden, der diese Frage leicht beantworten kann: H&M. Die Zentrale des Unternehmens liegt in der schwedischen Hauptstadt Stockholm. Im Erdgeschoss ist eine H&M-Filiale, in der es die gleichen Kleider gibt wie in Berlin, Tokyo oder San Francisco. Das gleiche T-Shirt für die ganze Welt, das ist das Prinzip von H&M.
Mit diesem Thema befasst sich das Zeit Online Magazin ausgiebig auf 6 Seiten. Hier geht's zum Weiterlesen:
H&M ist heute in 38 Ländern vertreten. 76.000 Mitarbeiter arbeiten nach der gleichen Philosophie: Ihnen Mode und Qualität zum besten Preis zu bieten. 

Mehr dazu findet man online bei H&M.
"Auf diesen Seiten erfahren Sie mehr, wie wir diese Philosophie umsetzen. Entdecken Sie H&M weltweit und nehmen Sie Einblick in den Design- und Einkaufsprozess unter Von der Idee bis zur Filiale. Was wir tun, um unserer sozialen und Umweltverantwortung gerecht zu werden, das erfahren Sie unter Unsere Verantwortung."

Daydream Nation's debut store in Hongkong. The duo behind the fashion meets art label Kay and Jing Wong have made a name for themselves doing visual presentations at LFW and now based in Hong Kong, they're probably one of the most established young designers in their hometown.  The opening of their store marks a big stepping stone in the label's timeline, providing Daydream Nation the means to establish their visual world which is so fundamental to the label as well as showcasing the local creative talent that Kay and Jing engage with. for more see NY Times article (*ahem* self plug, self plug... ): An Eye for Detail, and Plenty of Pop.

Da verbrennt kein Toast mehr ...

Toaster mit "Kuck-Fenster" : Magimix Vision Toaster.
Hat zwar nicht viel mit fashion & kids zu tun, aber wie sagt Paul Smith "You'll find inspiration in everything!" Das hat allerdings auch seinen Preis: $249.45

Für den nächsten London Besuch ...

Puppengeschichten bei Chanel

Sie kommen wieder in Mode, waren nie aus der Mode - Puppen!
Wie man jüngst am Beispiel der Schaufensterdekoration von Chanel sehen kann.

©mereli* gesehen bei Chanel, Kudamm Berlin

Als ich die Schaufensterdekoration von Chanel sah fielen mir gleich die "Rag Dolls" von Jess Brown ein.
Na was denkt Ihr?

Jess Brown began making dolls for her children 11 years ago using old cashmere sweaters and antique remnants. As committed flea market goers, they would search together for amazing antique pieces, trims, buttons and findings.This has now all come together as a small line of one of a kind and hand made rag doll. Each doll is hand dyed in persian black teas to create variations in skin tones. Each doll is stuffed with a sustainable corn fiber stuffing. They are all made of cotton muslin and linen, and of primarily recycled and antique fabrics and findings. Each doll is created with button shoulders. This may not be suitable for children under three years. Jess also collaborates with several designers, using scrap remnants left over from a current season cutting. These dolls are created as limited edtion collections. She also has a lovely blog.

Atelier Charivari - Vintage Kid's Furniture from France

Atelier Charivari is a blog and a shop in Rouen, France. The owner Soizic Menut brings back life to old furnitures. When you see these furniture you can tell he has a good eye on what is worth restoring. The thing is to see the quality in the old pieces. This doesn't mean surface scratches or even small dents or missing hardware - that is not a problem. Most of the time, it's the dents and scratches that add charm but if charm isn't what you are looking for, you can sand the item down and paint it to look new. What you have to look for, above everything else, is first do you like it (of course) but next, it needs to have good bones it must be sturdy and made well. Metal lockers, metal tables with exposed rivets, wood tables with metal tops, metal bookcases with wood shelves, these are all quite the rage currently, have you noticed? Atelier Charivari -if you are interested in ordering from them and live in mainland Europe, you may contact them if you see something that you are interested in purchasing.
