Optical illusion

It looks like a VW camper but it is…a tent! You can fit a whole family in. I know my kids would love it, but they would probably even prefer to sleep in the small dog house

(myself in a real VW camper, luxury version – with Haastens mattress, please…)

An invitation to take your time…

.

.

.

.

“Y’a pas le feu au lac” means “no need to rush”. The French expression evokes Lake Leman and the slow approach to life of Swiss people. YPLFL is also a design company based in France. Created by designers around the world, YPLFL products are an invitation to take your time, to contemplate your environment and to share with friends.

Inspired by traditional know-how and current technology, these objects primarily use wood as a poetic, aesthetic and functional vector.

My personal invitation to slow down today and to enjoy the last day of August with your children before crazy back-to-school… (Swiss children are already in class!)

The inspiring world of Ryan Roche

Located two hours north of New York on the Hudson Valley, the house of fashion designer Ryan Roche is filled with light, poetry and  inspiring details.

The place is extremely peaceful and joyful at the same time, allowing space for reflexion, bringing true happiness.

For those who know children’s fashion, the name of Ryan Roche will be familiar. In 2004, Ryan opened a Brooklyn store called mor mor rita and selling her beautiful line of knits and woven pieces. A collection of dreamlike clothes with an amazing color palette that influenced the industry.

Today, Roche has moved to adult’s (while keeping a small production for children) and her eponymous line has won the loyal support of a client base including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Milla Jovovich, Anne Christensen and Olya Thompson. 

The house reflects pretty much the clothes that Ryan creates : quiet, soft, modern, poetic with subtle yet stimulating details.
