It’s been a decade since the first Pop-up Stores opened in Paris, London and Berlin. The clever concept has spread all over the world and flourished over the years, giving brands the occasion to meet new customers without huge investments and giving customers a chance to shop in a more interactive and fun way.
If you are in New York this month, visit the “Goat Milk Kidware Organic Pop-up Store“ (photo above), 524 Hudson Street (open till December 4, 10am-7pm).
If you are in Berlin, visit PlayLOVEPop, “the first traveling Pop-up boutique” featuring Atsuyo et Akiko, Esp no.1, Kicokids, Wovenplay, an exhibit by Anna Palma and much more. Until December 23, Rykestrasse 50, Prenzlauer Berg – Berlin.

I watched two movies from Pirouettte interviews recently and I really liked them : The boy with the stripes pyjamas (Thanks Jenny Dalton) and Last train home (Thanks Lisa Wong). Today it’s my turn to recommend a movie : The Tree (Julie Bertuccelli, 2010). I watched it last night and I woke up with the images stuck in my head. The little Morgana Davies is very inspiring and the tree’s magic reminds a bit of Tim Walker with its octopus shape and little colorful lights.
