Fiat 500

A unique color for a renowned model

With Fiat 500 Pink So, Fiat launches for the 1st time in its history an ultra limited series for a mythical model: only 100 copies – in the pink “Pink So” exclusive color - are marketed in France.

Besides its collector painting, Fiat 500 So Pink, sold at a price of € 14 900, also distinguishes itself by its level of particularly rich equipment. Fiat 500 Pink So won’t “blush” in front of its competitors, thanks to its Start & Stop, automatic sunroof, automatic climate control and the Blue & Me series.

A limited number of copies, a select new fashion

The 100 Fiat 500 So Pink models are available immediately, as Fiat decided to put in place a unique way of marketing: to order this exceptional version, it is imperative to first pre-order the car online at /500sopink before confirming your order with your local Fiat dealer. Pre-orders can be placed starting the 26th of October. Attention! Latecomers may not see the color!

Fiat 500 So Pink puts fashion victims on the run even before its launch Fiat 500 So Pink, in partnership with Sarenza, puts the fashionitas on the run. Fiat 500 So Pink is actually the official car of the now legendary “course en escarpins” a sprint competition in which all competitors sprint on 8cm heels. After selections are completed in France, the final is scheduled for 20th of November in Paris.

Marchesa: sheer beauty, Fall 2010

There was plenty about Marchesa's Fall 2010 collection that fit perfectly within the label's signature style. Long gowns entwined with ruffles, fluffy feathered skirts, and the mandatory injections of draping silk and tulle. But this time around there was also a strong selection of super-short playful (yet still phenomenally detailed) dresses that the current set of young socialites and starlets will no doubt be jumping all over as red carpet fare.

David Koma

David Koma presented us with a highly graphic, structured yet easy collection this season.

While excellently executed we are tiring of the whole overly architectural silhouette trend and were expecting and needing to see something new. The Wilma Flintstone-esque seems and panelling emphasised the fitted nature of the pieces, removing the need for structural elements in this paired back collection. However there was nothing Stone Age about this, references were most definitely towards the future with the colour palette limited to a very minimal black, grey and nude.

In the latter part of the collection we were treated to some classic Koma with the 3D, spiral interpretation of the zigzag accompanied by our favourite soundtrack Cerrone’s Supernature which perfectly suited the mood. The beautifully crafted, glistening details made from zip teeth are stunning but more in an art sculpture type of way rather than the we want to wear this way.

Private Moon by Leonid Tishkov

Has you ever saw a moon so close that you could touch it? Russian artists Leonid Tishkov have created a series of artwork titled “Private Moon”, where he give life to a man and his moon.

“Private Moon” is a visual poem, telling a story about a man who found the Moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life.

In the upper world, in the attic of his house, he saw the Moon which had fallen from the sky. At first she was hiding from the sun in a dark, damp tunnel and was constantly frightened by the passing trains. Then she came to the house of the man.

Wrapping the moon in a thick blanket, he gives her autumn apples and drinks tea with her. When she finally recovers he puts her on a boat and carries her across a dark river to a high bank, where moon pine-trees grow.

He descends to the lower world wearing the clothes of his deceased father and then returns, illuminating the way with his private moon.

Transcending the borders between worlds via narrow bridges, sinking into sleep, taking care of the heavenly body, man turns into a mythological being living in the real world like in a fantastic fairy-tale.
