A brilliant ad campaign in Mumbai, India. I can see similar ads appearing on the escalators of the shopping malls in the US.
“In a world…
where nature and science have emerged, where technology breathes and where living without it is impossible.
This futuristic world is the inspiration for a collection of imitation fur, for the fashion industry. ‘Future fur’ shows that it is more interesting to imitate an imaginary world…”
This is not new… the previous post just reminded me of it.
And there are three good reasons for this to be a post:
1. Rendering – mesmerizingly beautiful !
2. Zaha Hadid – I’m not a big fan of her architecture but have a deep respect for a woman who thrive in a field dominated by men.
3. “Je veux être de ce qui arrive” – I love this quote by Coco Chanel.

More than 2 weeks after he was found dead in his Manhattan apartment, Heath Ledger’s body was cremated in a private ceremony in Perth, Australia on Saturday (02/09/08) followed by a twilight swim at his favorite beach. I’m posting this just for frivolous reasons…

Before Takashi Murakami’s exhibition at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA ends next Monday (2/11/08), I wanted to take a look at his star-studded opening back in October 2007. When was the last time we saw so many celebrities at an art opening – when Andy Warhol was alive?

The new campaign by Belvedere Vodka (originally from Poland) owned by LVMH is called “Luxury Reborn.” The celebrities in the campaign are Terry Richardson, Vincent Gallo and RZA. As you can see from the casts in the commercial, this is a niche campaign, and people who don’t get it are unlikely to recognize the campaign.
If you can relate to the short commercial, it’s worth checking out the interview of Vincent Gallo at the Belvedere Vodka’s website. Unfortunately the entire site is Flash, and the navigations is not so good. The interview can be found where it says DISCOVER LUXURY REBORN/THE CAMPAIGN BEHIND THE SCENE after the splash page.
And for those who love perfumes – Sabina Belli, the woman who is interviewing Vincent Gallo, was Dior’s International Marketing Director for Fragrance, Cosmetics and Skincare a few years ago. According to perfumer Thierry Wasser, he was able to complete the scent of Dior Addict in just two and a half months because of Sabina Belli’s inspiring description of what she wanted for the fragrance.
Most of you have heard of The Museum of Modern Art in New York. It’s off Fifth Avenue on 53rd street in Manhattan. Have you ever heard of Museum of Sex on FIfth Avenue? I only know about this museum because I used to pass in front of it every week to go to see the shrink few blocks from there. An exhibit called Sex in Design/Design in Sex recently opened at the museum, and will be on view through April 2008.
