  • An End of an Era and a New Beginning

    Written by Anonymous

    One last time we got to see the creation Mr. Lagerfeld, along with Virginie Viard, transformed Chanel’s home away from home, this time into a winter wonderland reminiscent of a small village in the French Alps.

    Large tweed fedora hats, seductive silhouettes with a masculine sway, Houndstooth, tartan and big check motifs, . A mind blowing postuum show from the fashion maestro. Winter white, beige, black, and navy blue were met with bursts of purple, fuchsia, brick and emerald green, elegant nonchalance. Ski outfits juxtaposed with urban wear, embroidered snowflakes in white and gold vinyl on chiffon and feather ‘snow-ball’ dresses. And the bags; a faux fur and quilted leather fanny packs and the 2.55… swoon!

    Blowing our minds as always with a Montreuil set designer showing us drop dead dedication. 

House ambassador Penelope Cruz walked down the runway along side some of Karl’s high end muses like Kaia, Cara, Vittoria and Luna.

The fashion industry has lost a true force, however with Lagerfeld’s perfectionist approach and eyes in the future, we assume he made detailed plans to keep his mark in the house and we won’t be disappointed in the seasons to come.

  • The doors that turn your IKEA kitchen into gold

    Written by Fashion Tales

    Your IKEA kitchen can now become one of the world’s most exclusive, with gold treated doors and 24 carat gold detailing. The collection called GULDKANT is the result of a Swedish design collaboration between the kitchen company Picky Living and lottery brand Triss, which will be available for order from the beginning of March.

    Picky Living and Swedish lottery brand Triss are initiating an exclusive design collaboration by the name GULDKANT. They co-produce golden cupboard doors for IKEA’s kitchen METOD and sideboard BESTÅ. The fronts of the doors are manufactured from gold-coloured stainless steel, while the legs and handles have been plated in genuine 24 carat gold.

    The domestic familiarity in IKEA meets extravagance in the form of genuine gold. With the design collection GULDKANT, that we have initiated in collaboration with Triss, our common ambition is to create the world’s most exclusive IKEA kitchen. The result reflects the ambition: cupboard fronts that stand out whilst retaining a simple stylishness”, says Henrik Haij, CEO of Picky Living.

    The gold-coloured stainless steel plate is bent around the edges of the doors and common to both kitchen and sideboard is the choice of a black granite benchtop to balance the overall impression.

    When it suddenly happens and the lottery winning dream is realized, many Triss winners respond by saying they want to treat themselves and their home with a luxury upgrade. That’s why this collaboration feels so right; together with Picky Living, we’re putting a luxurious golden finish on the furniture that many Swedes already have in their homes”, says Johan Svensson at Svenska Spel.

    A complete kitchen – as seen in the picture – is now available for order in Sweden with prices starting at SEK 92,000. Prices can vary depending on the size and design of the kitchen, the choice of worktop and appliances, as well as the number of gold details. A complete sideboard (see picture), 184 cm long, with gold fronts, black granite top, cover sides in black MDF, together with legs and handles is available to order for approximately SEK 25,000.

    More information is available at pickyliving.se or at the Picky Living store in Stockholm.
