DESIGNER TO KNOW: CÉDRIC CHARLIER



If we are talking about ongoing spring and it´s collections,
I have to go back and mention Cédric Charlier.
I was impressed by his Ready-To-Wear collection for this spring,
sporty, boyish and wearable.
Cédric Charlier was the former creative director of Cacharel, 
now works as an signature designer. 
Cédric Charlier’s collection is minimalist design mostly and mostly white.
It exudes the same clean lines as, for example Jil Sander collections.
The collection does not undertake any age,
the last touch to the creation comes according to the user.
Here are a few snapshots of the Spring 2013 collection:

Color Play


I live in a country where most of the year is almost dark,
but three short months, the summer is of continuous light. 
That is why we Scandinavians love the clean, bright colors and white.
We Scandinavians also share a love of nature and playful, child like mind.
Soft values ​​of openness and individuality are the things that are important to us.
Delighted at the beginning of the summer light,
I collected some colorful tidbits of Scandinavian design.

Inspiration Woodpecker


Spring has finally arrived and the light.
Little by little migratory birds start to return and behind the window is a polyphonic concert.
Early in the morning of his existence informs the woodpecker.
Loud ticking sound resounds, as it banging with her beak street lamp.
The best way to inform others that this is his territories.
Beautiful, tall black and white bird, decorated with some of red feathers.
I wanted to copy this handsome bird outfit.
