A night at the museum

Almost forgot to tell you!
Tomorrow it's Musuem night in Amsterdam! N8 as we call it!
Since the first Museum Night in November 2000, Amsterdam museums stay open until 2AM for one night a year, and welcome thousands of new vistors. For a relatively small city, Amsterdam has a great amount of museums and cultural institutions. This year 45 museums collaborate during Museum Night, and they are all easy to reach by bicycle or public transport.

Apart from seeing the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions there is plenty more to see and do, also for non-Dutch visitors. On this 11th edition you can enjoy live music, DJ’s, dance, performances, film, special tours, food & drinks. One ticket gives entrance to all museums, but be aware that some locations might be crowded. Keep your ticket, because in the period after Museum Night, it allows you free entrance to one of the participating museums. See ya in the cultural area! site

Sophie's choice

Dutch artist Anouk Griffioen and photographer Annemarieke van Drimmelen worked together on a project called Sophie. All inspired by the Dutch model Sophie Vlaming. Seen are transparent and fragile images, collages in black and white, an exploration between the parallels of photography and illustration resulted in Sophie, a beautiful series of portraits. The images will be exhibited in Magazijn 153 (Oudezijds Voorburgwal 153, Amsterdam, the Netherlands) the 27th and 28th of November. Together with the exhibition a special cassette with signed prints will be available in a limited edition of 50. A beautiful must see collaboration. Check out their site for more info!

Silly bracelet

Has any of you heard about rubber band bracelets? I guess this will be the newest hype! It are rubber bands, shaped in all thinkable forms and available in all kinds of neon colours. Without wearing them you’ll recognize the shape, but when wearing, it just looks like a weird (but cute) rubber bracelet.
It may sound a bit childish but since I’ve seen them around Stella McCartney’s show location in Paris is this my new must have accessory.
Every child in the US is begging for these, and the fad is spreading to middleschools, highschools, college campuses and have even been spotted on the arms of Hollywood divas. Silly Bands are more than just a fad. I got the T-shirt shaped variations yesterday at a presentation and now I want them in all kinds of fashionable shapes! Please let me know if you know a selling point around?

Mad girl

Mad Men is an American dramatic television series created and produced by Matthew Weiner. Mad Men is set in the 1960s, initially at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, and later at the newly created firm of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. The focal point of the series is Don Draper (Jon Hamm), creative director at Sterling Cooper and a founding partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, as well as those in his life, both in and out of the office. As such, it regularly depicts the changing moods, social mores, and political correctness of 1960s America. Besides the fact that the show is an intelligent supplement to all of the other existing television shows it is already a pleasure just looking at it. This fall a lot of designers got their inspiration by the show (Louis Vuitton, Prada) And I just found this funny site on where you can create your own online mad man character. Check it out on Mad Men yourself, and get your own Mad Men/sixties dress on Doublerlesol!

Golden edge

A few weeks ago I attended a fashion show from Sonia Rykiel. Today I was searching the internet to find their show tune. While visiting their site I bumped on their amazing blog with lovely stories, pretty words like: Bonheur << J’ai reconnu le bonheur au bruit qu’il a fait quand il a claque la porte>> which means something like: ‘I found happiness at the sound he made when he slams the door’ Lol.

Behind the tab modern vintage you’ll find lovely old fashion magazine pictures and vintage movies. One little thing. Everything is in French. But don’t say pictures more then thousand words? Check out Sonia Rykiels Blog:
Oh and btw, I did found the sound of the fashion show. Which also has a lovely vintage sound: The Stranglers - Golden Brown
