nudiejeansrepairshopsoho2
One can become very attached to a good pair of jeans – so much so that it’s a bit of a wrench when your favourites finally start to look more devastated than artfully distressed. We’ve got some good news to cheer up your Nudie Jeans, as the eco-friendly denim company has just opened a new store in London in which you can get your Nudies fixed up for free.

PERU PISAC Market

market Pisac _Mercado_turistico_pisac
The legendary Pisac Marketplace on Sundays. Just a short taxi ride from Cusco, this place is filled with everything you can imagine. It is split into two areas, one being the art, textiles & souvenirs, and the other side being a food market where the locals bring their produce to sell/trade. There are vendors who serve boiled or fried corn with seasoning. Don't be surprised to see a cow head sittin  g next to a bowl full of fresh fish. You can easily walk away from this place with all of the gifts you would want to bring home for your loved ones.   The main market is on Sunday, with smaller markets held on Tuesday and Thursday. Sunday is also a good time to see locals wearing colorful traditional...

You know “Lodekka”?

What is the significance of the name "Lodekka"? The bus is a 1965 Bristol Lodekka. “Lodekka” is a made-up word to indicate that the bus is low to the ground and has a “low deck.” I chose the name to pay homage to the bus and its British roots. The bus is also named Guinevere, but her nickname is Ginny. What kinds of things do you carry in your shop? I carry dresses, jackets, shorts, skirts, shoes and accessories for women, shirts, shoes and furnishings for men, a few kids clothing items and lots of knick-knacks and ephemera.   written by girlhula12 Source - http://www.Flickr.com...

TAKING SIDES ; Geometric Stockholm fashion store

dagmaratNKnordiskadesigners3
If you thought Dagmar was a nightclub that Dirty Den set fire to in Eastenders, then firstly you’re old, and secondly you clearly haven’t been clothes shopping in Sweden much; Dagmar is a fashion brand run by three sisters with a new in-store shop at the super-swanky Stockholm department store Nordiska Kompaniet (NK). There may be two sides to most stories, but there are three sides to the story of design firm Guise‘s interior work – taking a cue from Dagmar’s association with the Art Deco movement, it started with the simplest geometric shape, the triangle, and expanded on its possibilities. Stacking the triangles together, Guise constructed display frames with many different ways to arrange the clothes, hanging in the traditional...

TENUE DE NÎMES HAARLEMMERSTRAAT, AMSTERDAM

tenuedenimes1
They say men and women are two different species, and at this second shop from denim vendor Tenue de Nîmes, the designers have approached the task at hand with that very tenet in mind. The team – architect Pim van Lingen, interiors man Jacob Roeland, art director Joachim Baan and Tenue de Nîmes’ founders Rene Strolenberg and Menno van Meurs – split the shop in half, one for the Martians and one for the Venutians. The ‘Mesdames’ section is light, soft and colourful, while still using a modern look that exploits industrial architectural features. The blokes have been sent to the basement, the shop equivalent of the garden shed, with a more rough and ready aesthetic. There are lots of other little...
