H&M CONSCIOUS EXCLUSIVE 2016

HMCE16 (1)

H&Mi Conscious Exclusive on brändi disainerkollektsiooni kõrval teine, mida igal aastal suure põnevusega ootan ja mis minu garderoobi nii mõnegi uhke kleidi on lisanud (näiteks selle SIIN). Seekordne kollektsioon on olemuselt väga kunstipärane ning juba tuttavad lõiked on mahedate toonide abil mõnusa värskenduskuuri saanud. Jätkuvalt on suur rõhk jätkusuutlikkusel, keskkonnasõbralikkusel ja taaskasutusel, näiteks on kollektsiooni loomisel oma osa mänginud ka vanad plastpudelid, purunenud klaas ja teksajäägid (rohkem infot leiad nt Helene blogist). Ja just sel põhjusel see kollektsioon mind alati nii palju paelubki, sest see on ehe näide sellest, kuidas millestki vanast on võimalik luua niivõrd ilusat uut. Kollektsioon jõuab müügile juba sel nädalal, täpsemalt 7. aprillil, ning eestlased leiavad selle lisaks Postimaja kauplusele ka H&Mi äsjaavatud e-poest.

H&M Conscious Exclusive collection is something that I’m always anxiously waiting for and to me it’s as important as the brand’s designer collaboration. The focus behind the CE collection is sustainability, so the collection is made out of recycled materials (i.e PET bottles) and eco-friendly textiles. So each year it’s really interesting to see what the brand has come up with now and, to be honest, the collection never fails to amaze me. This year it’s all very artsy and you can find actual art on some of these clothes (can you spot the Three Graces from Botticelli’s famous painting “Primavera” on one of the dresses?). Some of the cuts look very familiar and resemble some pieces from H&M’s previous collections, but the design team has given them a whole new life by adding some interesting colours, details, and prints on them. So what’s not to love about the collection?!
H&M Conscious Exclusive will be available in stores and online on 7th of April.

WEAR-ARTS

O37B9399

Selle nädala alguses käisin tutvumas toreda eestimaise rõivabrändi Wear-Arts toodetega. Tegemist on Tallinn Dollsi sulest sündinud kunstiplatvormiga, mille ideeks on erinevate kunstnike loomingu kandmine rõivastele, pakkudes seeläbi nii ainulaadseid rõivaesemeid nende kandjatele kui ka uut müügikanalit kunstnikele endile. Wear-Artsi suur ja pidevalt täienev andmebaas sisaldab hetkel ligi 400 erinevat kunstitööd, mille seast saab rõivaeseme ostja endale sobiva teose valida ning lasta selle soovitud rõivaesemele trükkida. Kõige positiivsem on selle juures aga fakt, et iga kunstnik, kelle teosed projektis osalevad, saab nende eest autoritasu, mis tähendab omakorda seda, et Wear-Artsi tooteid soetades toetad sa tegelikult ka kunstnikke. Kunstikud, kelle teoseid hetkel Wear-Arts pakub, on terve hulk ja esindatud on nii maailmakuulsad nimed nagu Klimt, Munch, Cezanne, Pollock, Degas jt kui ka andekad Eesti kunstnikud Wiiralt, Lapin, Leis ning Kits. Ja muide – veendusin ise, et kangad on äärmiselt kvaliteetsed! Nii et kes jõulukinke otsib, siis Wear-Arts on igati tore ja kingisaajat kindlasti rõõmustav valik. Brändi tooted on hetkel soodsate tutvumishindadega saadaval Stockmanni naisteosakonnas paiknevas hüpikpoes, aga muidugi ka nende kodulehel wear-arts.com, kust saab soetada nii olemasolevaid tooteid, kinkekaarte kui ka rõivaid, millele ise soovitud kunstiteose paigutad. Check it out!

This week I was invited to go and check out an awesome Estonian clothing brand named Wear-Arts. It’s a wonderful and unique platform that combines both fashion and the art world, offering women’s clothing and a new sales channel for painters. How it works is that you can choose a painting from their database (which at the moment contains around 400 paintings and is ever-growing), choose a garment (e.g. a turtleneck sweater or a dress – they have a list of options), decide how you would like the painting to appear on the garment, and then place an order. They have a lot of artists you can choose from (Klimt, Munch, Cezanne, Pollock, Degas and other world-famous artists) and I heard that there are some really exciting projects coming up in the future, so the list of artists will get much, much longer! Check out their webpage wear-arts.com for more information.

KAUBAMAJA 55

Tallinna Kaubamaja (Tallinn Department Store) is now 55 beautiful years old and what a better way to celebrate it than to throw a fabulous fashion show?! And that’s exactly what they did. The show was held at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design which is currently filled with amazing fashion illustrations from all over Scandinavia. Check them out and make sure to visit the museum before the exhibition closes (on September 23rd)!

PS! Tallinna Kaubamaja is currently focusing on Estonian design, so go ahead and visit the department store, and enrich your wardrobe (or living room) with some beautiful and one-of-a-kind design pieces!

Exhibition “ÕUN” (“Apple”), a collaboration between Saku Brewery and Estonian artists/designers, is open for one more week, located at Telliskivi Loomelinnak (Must Saal). Also, if you’re at least 18 years old, I truly recommend you to try Saku’s new gluten-free ciders – they are de-li-ci-ous!
