Definitely loving the subtleness of summer colours (Yellows, Greens) peaking out from those nude pieces. It’s also comforting to see purple pieces since it being such a Fall/Winter 2012 colour, who knew purple + green + orange could make such perfect combination!
I’m also looking out for ways to pull off a yellow gold without looking frumpish and outdated.
Nice collection that I’d love to get my hands on!! Those backpacks/purses are dool worthy!!
Good Monday morning, hope your previous week was good! Mine was filled with ups and downs but despite that, I would say I had an awesome week!
If you have not heard of Monday Flying, don’t fret, it’s never too late to know this new kid on the block *claps*. Monday Flying is an online site with an interest in providing an insight to Asia; Singapore, Beijing, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and etc. I actually like how MF writes their ‘About’ page with this statement in mind – “With an aim in bringing delightful and interesting lifestyle news to you in a timely manner”. Which is what the editor, Stephie Tan, of Monday Flying feels that is lacking in the online scene.
A teeny weeny thing to mention, you can show me some (teeny) support by commenting on my humble contribution (here), not that it’s a big deal, but it’ll help me in writing better articles and also knowing what’s good and bad in the way I write. It’s definitely NOT about me, it’s ALL ABOUT WHAT YOU ALL LIKE!
Ps:The article I wrote was about Scrubb – a Thai music group that is worth listening to. I’d be posting up their videos real soon! Good music is worth every wait! Heheh!
Thank you VERY NICE!
Naoto Fukasawa (深澤 直人) is a Japanese industrial designer, born in Yamanashi Prefecture in 1956. Representative works include MUJI’S CD player (part of the permanent collection, MoMA New York ), the mobile phones “Infobar” and “neon” and the ±0 brand of household electrical appliances and sundries.
Fukasawa is a professor at Musashino Art University and a visiting lecturer at Tama Art University. He has authored such books as An Outline of Design (TOTO) and co-authored others such as The Ecological Approach to Design (Tokyo Shoseki).
Do also check out Naoto Fukasawa’s interview with designboom.com and get to know him on another personal level. Which I think is pretty interesting, since we always get to only visual feast on his works now knowing how some of his ideas are generated, it made me feel ‘closer’ to him. I personally loved how he answered this question “You have used the name ‘without thought’ as the title of some of your workshops. Can you tell us more about ‘without thought’?“
These bags are equally sleek and cool which I would like to get my hands on. No Muji CD Player, then maybe these bags would be good?
