Collage Artworks with Brooches by Mimi Berlin

Artworks with Brooches by Mimi Berlin

The first series of Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks are ready! In order to keep the past of fashion alive, preserve and comment on it, we decided to take one magazine from our mimimagazines collection apart and turn it into artworks; by combining them with costume jewelry from our collection (which is also vintagedeluxe). The collages, 45 in total, are all made with laminated pages from one magazine; Linea Italia Magazine, augm1980, and carefully selected brooches, fixed together in a storytelling way.

The ingredients for these collages are both vintagedeluxe. The brooches are mostly costume jewelry which are fixed onto the laminated fashion magazine pages, they can be taken off if you’d like to wear them or you can hang the artwork on your wall (with or without the jewelry; you can decide that after purchase for yourself!)

They aren’t up for sale ye;t they have to be photographed properly first…..we’ll keep you posted!

Electric Co Collection 01. Redefining perspectives on femininity and luxury
In the 01 collection a 3D knit structure made from Polyester monofilaments behaves like an exoskeleton ‘recoding’ the archetypical bomber and sweater silhouette to fit Electric Co’s vigorous dynamics, enabling bold shapes to interact with the feminine contour. This Polyester monofilament, an industrial leftover, adds a luxurious metallic shine to each garment delicately contrasted by an extra fine wool and mohair which gives the garment wear ability and comfort. Reclaimed Polyester monofilament is scarce. According to what is available, fine and thick monofilaments are used. This is one reason why the Electric Co designs are produced in limited editions: In continuous evolution from one collection to the other.

At Peet Dullaert’s Showroom in the Atelier Neérlandais, Paris

Mimi Berlin visited the showroom of Dutch Fashion designer Peet Dullaert in the Atelier Neérlandais in Paris.

Next to limited edition pieces and accesories Peet Dullaert’s Collection 2017-1 filled the showroom.
“The 2017-1 is a collection inspired by the under the sea adventures of the French explorer Jaques Cousteau. The breathtaking fragility of beauty of coral reefs and with that life. Photographed in the atelier of French sculpture Philippe Morel. After discovering artist Philippe Morel, Peet Dullaert found echo of his own universe; an exploration of organic shape and human anatomy.” (read more at peetdullaert.com)
