[ doesn't only cover what's current but also what i think looks good + relevant, no matter what's the trend | art, design, music, street style, architecture + film are just a sampling of other interests i love to write about, which in a roundabout way, do affect fashion ]

Well, isn’t she just worth the indiscretion?  I mean look at her - could you ever go wrong with Pucci, Starck or Kartell!  

The latest ‘Madame’ chair iteration was created for Salone del Mobile 2014 through a designer collaboration between Kartell, Emillio Pucci + Philippe Starck.  Called ‘Madame – World of Emilio Pucci Edition’, Pucci was to upholster one of Philippe Starck’s newest designs for the brand, the padded polycarbonate ‘Madame’ chair.

Chairs depicting the surroundings of four world-class flagship Pucci stores: Paris’ Avenue Montaigne, Rome’s Piazza di Spagna, New York’s Fantasia + Madison Avenue, come to life with colorful prints from Pucci’s scarf collection.  With a padded seat + a soft, rounded back + armrests, sitting on a polycarbonate base, while embraced in an all-around Pucci print, what’s not to love?

The ‘Madame – World of Emilio Pucci Edition’ is part of Pucci’s Cities of the World project, created to celebrate its boutiques worldwide with limited-edition scarves printed with abstract designs of city squares, plazas + skylines in the style of the Italian fashion house.

What better way to celebrate an artist’s worldwide recognition than having their work on postal stamps, especially if it’s artist Touko Laaksonen (a.k.a Tom of Finland)?  Well that’s exactly what his native Finland did in creating commemorative stamps featuring Tom of Finland’s homoerotic BDSM drawings.

image

Graphic designer Timo Barry had the challenging task of picking the right illustrations from Tom of Finland’s 3,500 archival drawings.  Barry believes the stamps ‘portray a sensual life force + being proud of oneself’.  These stamps definitely are all about being ‘proud’, but the sad irony of it all is how this Nordic country has yet to legalize same-sex marriage + requires surgical sterilization before people can legally change their gender.

image

The autumn-long release of 7 new sets of stamps from Posti (Finland’s version of the U.S.P.S.), will coincide with The Finnish Postal Museum’s exhibition of the artist’s letters from the 1940s until his death in 1991,  opening in September.
