Antoine+Manuel Part 2

print work

So here is some more work from Antoine+Manuel. They created a collection of invites for the Christian Lacroix Shows over the years. (Unfortunately as we all found out last week Lacroix went bankrupt). This invites are one of the most amazing sets of print work i have ever seen and possibly some of the most expensive. For such a disposable item as a fashion show invite it is quite a grand design. Layers of different pantones, UV varnish, embossed and debossed details, laser cut illustrations. I wonder how much each one of these cost to produce. I hope someday I will get a company with enough money to allow for this kind of experimentation in both creativity and use of materials. If you happen to have stumbled upon one of these keep it for life.

piece of furniture

Gorgeous piece of furniture by designers Antoine+Manuel. Extremely detailed,graphic, clean and definitely a visual statement. This is one of many pieces they have made over. They designed some pieces as well for the exhibition at the Musée des Arts décoratifs, hotels, Les Galeries Lafayette amongst other places.

Great pairs of black shoes featured in Jak & Jil’s blog. From Givenchy, to Margiela, to Nicholas Kirkwood they are all perfection. Just like a little black dress to have some good pairs of black shoes is absolutely essential.
