A lovely series of posters by designer Hyejung Bae (Korean-born, Los Angeles-based) – they advertise imaginary concerts of electronic musicians playing classical composers, such as Kraftwerk/Mozart, YMO/Beethoven, and Pet Shop Boys/Haydn.

“hyejungbae says:

the concert is my imagination,
not happened

Triple Major shop opens in Beijing

Triple Major is an international creative studio that previously brought Project White T-shirt to Beijing – now they have opened their own boutique in a Dongcheng hutong. The eponymous shop is “disguised as a traditional Chinese medicine clinic” but will carry “avant-garde designs from international talents as an antidote to mainstream fashion’s erosion of individuality.” The 2nd floor and rooftop will host special exhibitions and events, including one by experimental designers Ffixxed (via Australia and Shenzhen) on Oct 29.

See full coverage by Beijing Stylites here and more about their opening flea market during the October holiday. More photos by proprietor Richie Chen here and some street style snapshots for Space 1520 LA.

BER: Nail polish inspired by new Berlin airport

“BER” is a neon-coral shade of nail polish brought to you by edgy Berlin boutique No 74. More information via Feride Uslu’s blog for Colette:

“BER was thought up, created and curated by our good friends at No 74 Berlin (Torstrasse 74, you guessed it.) as a homage to our city and it’s new (under contraction) airport. We could not agree more! Even though we were strong opposers to the closure of THF, we now feel warmly for the new use of the terrain as a public park… hence our sympathy for BER! As an exclusive collaboration colour, BER is only available at No74…”

On a related note, the former Tempelhof airport is coming back to life in other ways, as Berlin’s largest public space. Read more at Abitare and Dossier Journal.

My dream apartment in 1963 Vientiane.
Basically when not with the video crew, I just walked around this tiny, adorable capital taking pictures of old sixties buildings and eating croissants. How colonial!
