maison&objet paris

Posted on September 9, 2016

po nekaj letih je spet lepo doživeti septemberski  paris v času design weeka, se sprehoditi mimo novih kolekcij v  le bon marcheju, v nedeljo dopoldne barantati  na bolšjaku v porte de clignancourtu, zvečer opazovati mimoidoče v maraisu … najbolj naporno je posedati na sejmu in v množici produktov ponujati svojo kolekcijo….

after a few years, it is nice to be in paris during design week in september again, take a walk through the new collections at le bon marche,  bargain in porte de clignancourt flea market on sunday morning, watch the passers-by at evenings in marais … the most exhausting is  offering your own collection in the crowd of products  at the fair…

LJFW 2016

Posted on May 14, 2016

v modi gre vse prehitro: pred kratkim se je zaključil ljfw – ljubljana fashion week s predstavitvijo kolekcij za jesen/zimo 2016/17. izbrani so modeli, naročeni materiali, prirejeni kroji, potrebno je kolekcijo le še izdelati za prodajo. vedno več znamk se odloča za prodajo kupcem takoj po predstavitvi na fashion weeku. modni krog je tako postal še hitrejši, znanje logistike še zahtevnejše.

in fashion, everything goes too fast: recently, the ljubljana fashion week with collections for autumn/winter 2016/17 has finished. the dresses have been selected for the production, materials have been ordered, the patterns have been modified.  now, the collection has to be produced and prepared for the sale. some of the brands have decided to sell their collections immediately after showing them at the fashion shows.   fashion circle has  become even faster and knowledge of logistics even more demanding.

almirasadar spring/summer 2016 home collection

Posted on March 11, 2016

interier kolekcija pomlad/poletje 2016 je oblikovana z ljubeznijo do ročnih del, barv in vzorcev. sodobni izdelki so narejeni s pomočjo tradicionalnih tekstilnih tehnik kvačkanja, pletenja in tkanja. ročno delo v konceptu trajnostnega oblikovanja opozarja na pozabljene kulturne vrednote, ki so jih gojili in razvijali ljudje v določenem času in prostoru. izdelke lahko naročite v trgovini almirasadar, beethovnova 12, ljubljana ali v spletni tgovini.

almirasadar spring/summer home collection is designed with love of handwork, colors and patterns.  traditional textile techniques of crocheting, knitting and weaving are used to achieve a contemporary design. as a part of sustainable design, handwork recalls the forgotten cultural values which have been grown and developed in the past by people in the certain places. you can order the products in almirasadar shop, beethovnova 12, ljubljana or in e shop.

pop-up trgovina / pop-up store

Posted on December 5, 2015

pop-up trgovine so zanimive, ker  vzniknejo naenkrat, obstajajo kratek čas, potem pa spet izginejo… v ponedeljek, 7. decembra bo v stari ljubljani tako vzniknila pop-up trgovina sedmih slovenskih oblikovalk in oblikovalcev in bo v pop-up vizualni podobi špele leskovic in teje ideje vabila mimoidoče k nakupu slovenskih novoletnih daril. vabljeni!

pop-up stores are interested because they emerge suddenly, exist for a short time, and disappear again… on monday, 7 december, a pop-up store representing seven slovenian designers will be open in the old part of ljubljana. interior and visual design was conceived by špele leskovic and teje ideje. welcome to pass by and choose some slovenian christmas gifts.made_in_slo_LETAK_LJ MADE-IN-SLOVENIJA-vabilo2-web

vezeni copati / embroidered slippers

Posted on September 29, 2015

kolekcija vezenih copatov je nastala pravzaprav iz ostankov volnenega filca, iz katerega so bili predhodno narejeni volneni tepihi. s pomočjo  laserja so bili izrezani posamezni deli copat in luknjice v njih, ki so omogočile vezenje s križci po vzoru slovenskih tradicionalnih vezenin.

collection of embroidered slippers was actually designed from the remains of woolen felt, from which woolen carpets had been made. individual parts of slippers and small holes in them, cut with laser,  enabled embroidery with crosses which derives from slovenian traditional embroidery.

tekstil za calypsocrystal / textile for calypsocrystal

Posted on September 15, 2015

za calypsocrystal smo oblikovali tekstil za novo kolekcijo ovitkov za i phone, i pad in macbook. vsi izdelki so oblikovani in izdelani po načelih trajnosti, z velikim spoštovanjem do ročnega dela, tradicionalnih rokodelskih tehnik in njihovih mojstrov, ki proces izdelave izdelka upočasnijo in mu dodajo nove kvalitete.

we have designed the textile for calypsocrystal’s new collection of iphone, ipad and macbook cases. all products are designed and produced according to the principles of sustainability, with great respect for the techniques and masters of handicraft, who slow the production process and add new qualities to it.
