The Bread Collection

France is known for many things….notably the crusty baguette.

We love French designer Marie Bouillie aka Maron Bouillie’s latest quirky and charming collection of bread bags. The artist, fashion designer & photographer launched her company in 2003. Inspired by her childhood growing up in the countryside, Marie combines her skills to produce a beautiful refreshing bucolic collection.

Her photography is printed on high quality cotton which is transformed into bags, storage bags, aprons and various accessories. These “images turned into objects” are made in France and Japan with a high quality requirement.

Her past collections’ themes spanned from fruit and vegetable, to retro Paris and the flea market. Each time, the bags are colourful, quaint and refreshing.

This season’s Bread Collection is a feast for the eyes. Mouth watering baguettes and oven baked breads decorate her collection.  As you browse through her site, you feel the need to visit Paris again ! The cafés, the markets, the smell of freshly baked baguette and the sound of the accordeon , aah Paris…..

hip hop grandpas of Nairobi

They’re known as Kabangu, and they’re a group of hip hop grandpas who’ve been around since the 1980s — or so it appears.

This ultimate band of “true hip hop heads” allegedly double as security guards by night in Kariobangi – one of Nairobi’s informal settlements.
By day, the four men are said to educate and mentor up and coming talents within the hip hop scene. A Kenyan photographer Osborne Macharia and stylist Kevin Abraham have created an imaginary supergroup of octogenarians.  Known as Kabangu, the fictional band has proven so popular many believe they actually exist ! source : cnn

Hamburg-based photographer Alexandra Lier has launched her book, ‘the world’s fastest place’. Her photographs bring the viewer to the Bonneville Salt Flats in the state of Utah, a unique setting where racers gather to show their incredible passion and powerful machinery. More records for absolute speed have been set at this location than any other place on the planet. Every year, devoted gear heads and adrenaline junkies from around the world descend upon the flats to add their names to the record books with their hot rods, streamliners, roadsters, motorcycles and belly tankers.

Adoptable Pit Bulls show their Flower Power

Sophie Gamand made flower headpieces and approached three rescue groups in NYC with the idea,  all welcomed the project with enthusiasm.She set up a studio and photographed some of the pit bulls who were up for adoption. Eventually, word spread of Gamand’s initiative and she was approached by Hempstead town animal shelter to organize a ‘flower power ‘shoot for their most urgent dogs. Since then, Gamand has continued to photograph the breed in these shelters and for other rescues, and hopes to take the project to other cities across the world. source : designboom
