After Karl Cola, Dita Perrier

This summer, Perrier teams with “pin-up” model Dita Von Teese for a limited edition “Paparazzi” line. The entire Perrier range (PET and glass bottles, cans and multi-packs) sees a black and silver portrait of Dita printed across their labels. Available June 2010.

Wonder from which one of  the Karl Lagerfeld Cola or Dita Perrier I will take my first sip…


Wallpapered furniture by Bryonie Porter

Loving this idea of wallpapering furniture.

Bryonie Porter creates these beautiful papered pieces using wallpaper on antique and modern furniture. Using a water-based (environmentally friendly high gloss laquer) she transforms sometimes humdrum pieces into stunning works of art.

Wallpaper used on this pic is by Timorous Beasties, a studio I have already blogged about a while back.


Curious cufflinks by Samuel Gassmann

Samuel Gassmann is better known for being a curator and an art consultant. Fewer know that he is also a designer since last Autumn as he has launched a collection of cufflinks. Most of his collection comprises either a simple disc, ‘cabochon’ or button but what varies the most are the special materials, embellishments and colours.

For instance, the ‘Circumstance’ selection features rare materials — ivory, French jet or coral — discovered mostly at Paris flea markets such as porcelain cabochons made using original ancient fèves.


Another take on Mexican bracelets by Dezso

Remember these bracelets you would made for yourselves or for your friends at school? 

Well, as part of her new jewelry line, Dezso, Sara Belatraz offers this adolescent classic with a grown-up twist: a silver or gold seashell. Ideal to compare the tan lines at the end of summer. Rest of the collections worth a glance too.


Bike Porter by Copenhagen Parts

Old-school basket weave is fine. What if you ride a stylish single-speed but you also want to carry bags and groceries? Copenhagen Parts response is: The Bike Porter.

It’s designed to attach to the stem easily, installing just like any normal handlebar and can be attached to any bicycle using a two part stem (A-head stem). Just when you thought this was the perfect new accessory for your bike, wait and see the colours options..


Lagerfeld Cola

Here is a sneak preview of the collaboration of Karl Lagerfeld and Coca-Cola. A display was recently installed at Galeries Lafayette, which along with Colette, will sell a limited-edition, boxed version of the bottle, complete with a matching opener.

The Coca-Cola Light’s new ads were shot by none other than Karl Lagerfeld and feature Coco Rocha and Baptiste Giabiconi. 

Yummy and stylish?!
