Revival Bag | Mandarina Duck

I Went inside a Mandarina Duck store in Florence, and this bag caught my attention. The Mandarina Duck Revival Bag [black] looks like a plastic trash bag. The main fabric is actually made of recycled plastic bottles (PET) and has a distinctive texture reminiscent of a bubble wrap.

Revival line is based on Mandarina Duck's eco-compatible research.

“In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes.” Lavoisier"

 shaped like a market bag

I also bought this small wristband accessory with zippered pockets that can hold small items.

All the models can be folded up and sealed inside the handy pearly plastic pockets that are normally used to hold those small objects that tend to get lost in your bag.

British designer Gareth Pugh redesigns the iconic ABSOLUT bottle.

If i'm not mistaken, this is just the second time that ABSOLUT gave the designer freedom to alter the original shape of the bottle, the other one is with the ABSOLUT Glimmer.

The ABSOLUT Mode edition bottle was inspired by one of the pieces of the designer’s Spring/Summer 2007 Collection. The bottle was launched this week and is now available from Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.

I like the design of this one, it looks like a PET water bottle.

ManilArt 2011 | 3rd Philippine International Art Fair

ManilArt 2011, the 3rd Philippine International Art Fair is on! On Aug. 24-27, the country’s biggest gathering of galleries promises a more diverse and vibrant art exposition at the NBC Tent in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

“Viewers shall witness a groundbreaking launch—the simultaneous opening of various art exhibitions during gala night,” said Delan Lopez Robillos, ManilArt 2011 director. “Exhibitors will not simply be showcasing the works of artists they represent but each gallery shall be presenting a conceptualized art exhibit,” he added.

The maiden run of ManilArt in 2009 had a painting of a jeepney by Onib Olmedo as its banner piece, while 2010 bared Andres Barrioquinto’s “Crystal Gazer.” This year, ManilArt is privileged to have the artistry of highly sought painter Elmer Borlongan with his obra “Batang Edsa.”

ManilArt 2011 seeks to merge the visual arts with other disciplines. Programs will include a modern-dance interpretation of Borlongan’s art by premier contemporary-dance maven and Dance Forum founder, Myra Beltran during the gala.

Among Beltran’s professional affiliations are Ballet of Oldenburg in Germany; Ballet of Prishtina in Yugoslavia; and Ballet Philippines.

Dance Forum has performed in various international festivals, including Expostion’O Contemporary Dance Fiesta in Singapore and the World Dance Alliance Festival in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Hosted by RJ Ledesma, the Filipiniana gala night will be complemented by a fusion of indigenous and modern music by Banda Malaya. Guests shall be serenaded by the award-winning Fatima University Chorale.

Olive Tree Chairs

Olive Tree Chairs

I just wished that they had these when we did our Studio blessing.. Planning an event is very stressful especially when choosing the right elements to bring in to your party, Chairs and tables for rent are the hardest since there are limited choices out there like the outdated Tiffany chairs and the cheap Mono Block types. We ended up with the Mono Block chairs that they dress up with white covering.

"Now available in Manila, are Ghost Chairs for rent that are affordable. Olive Tree Philtrade offers design chairs that will make a lasting impression in any venue. Give your special day that extra touch, by renting our ghost chairs and watch your set-up become wonderfully picturesque. It is versatile and will match any theme you can imagine. Whether it be a garden venue or a formal affair, you are definitely left with a stand-out conversation piece. We also offer other design chairs for retail and wholesale."

Our studio blessing set up

It would've been nicer if we used Olive Tree Chairs
