Playtime!

Installation at Playtime Paris

I was a bit sad to miss the action in Europe : all the exciting Trade Shows in Copenhagen (CIFFKIDS), Amsterdam (Kleine Fabriek), London (Bubble), Florence (Pitti Bimbo), Paris (Playtime). Luckily, I will be in the US in March, just in time for Playtime New York, a show that I keep visiting and that I appreciate a lot for its real boutique feel and beautiful brands selection (75 in total).

Lauti and Madi

Here’s a boy who loves little cars, and can spend a lot of time playing with his huge collection. But Lautaro is also curious about what’s going on in his environment. He recently passed his first English exam; he was standard-bearer and won a history contest in school.

White out

IMG_3928

I remember a Trend Union/Li Edelkort conference, at the end of  last century (I feel so old speaking like this). The trends guru prophesied that 2000 would be the year of white. The whole presentation was amazing, in a white room with white food, and Li’s white hair. 2000 itself was not particularly  white (for which we thought Li had lost her magic flair), but the trend slowly developed over the decade, and it is still strong today

Into the wild, reading books

From the book “Mi mama no es simpatica” by Loreto Corvalan

I wish I could take the Argentinian landscapes back with me to London, and I wish I also could take that delicious reading room with its decor and books contents. I love Eastern European children’s books and illustrators but South American seem to have the same love for detailed + poetic drawings, for sophisticated colour palettes. So rich, so precious for children…
