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.
‘Hummingbird’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Silver Face’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Bad’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
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!
Mimi Berlin is remembering the many moments watching this image in a mesmerizing state: the beauty, the mystery, it triggered the imagination heavily.
This image is an invite for a fashion show given by Dutch fashion designers, Puck & Hans in 1978. Photography for this image was done by Wout Berger, “model Mieke posing for Wout on the border of IJsselmeer. No Photoshop in these days: the pictures were composed together with scissors and glue!” puck & hans
