Original Boris Mäemets photography posters & postcards available at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design

Esimene postitus peale pikka pikka suvist eemalolekut – nii palju pilte on kogunenud mida jagada, New Yorkist Helsinki Fashion Weeki ja Hiiumaani, kuid esimesena astub üles üleskutse tulla 12. augustist vaatama Kaadris ja Kaadri Taga näitust Eesti Tarbekunsti- ja Disainimuuseumis. Olen väga õnnelik, et sain antud näitusele graafikat luua ning kuraatoriks on omakorda lähedane inimene Anne Vetik ja näituse sisedisaineriks hea sõber Johan Tali, helikujundus Sander Mölder.

Näitusel saab vaadata Boris Mäemetsa 60′ ja 70′ aastate Eesti moeajakirjade telgitagust fotograafiat, nii, et tasub kindlasti muuseumiskäik ette võtta. Samuti valmistasime fotoprinte plakatite ja postkaartide kujul aka võimalik ka üpris rariteetset kraami koju seinale panna. Aadressiks Lai 17 Tallinn ja avamisajad on K-P 11-18.

Varsti näeb.

First post after summer vacay and a strong kickoff to a new blogging season. It’s been a while! I have so many cool looks and photos to share from New York to Helsinki Fashion Week and of course Hiiumaa, but more important is the photography exhibition curated by Anne Vetik as I was honored to create graphic design for this one & the exhibition design itself is made by my friend Johan Tali & sound design by Sander Mölder.

Meaning since 12. August (a day after my birthday!) everybody is invited to the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design to have a look at behind the scenes Boris Mäemets photography for the local fashion magazines in the 60’s and 70’s. The museum is located in Lai 17 street Tallinn and the opening hours are Wed-Sun 11-18.

Love.

Kuna ma ei pidanud kunagi teesklema, et mulle Twin Peaks meeldib, ei pea ma see suvi kannatama ka kõikide fännide lakkamatut mölinat sellest, kui tuus on uus hooaeg. Ma teadsin niigi, et see tuleb tuus. Okei nats olin skeptiline, aga jumal sellega. Niisiis otsustasin teistelegi fännitaridele teha väikse stiili-giidi selleks, et väljendada homaaži vanadele hooaegadele ja samas alustada Twin Peaksi moe kombäkiga. Alustame kampsunitest.

1. Võlts või päris mohäär või kašmiir kampsik, pastelne.
2. Kole isa kampsun suvila kapist
3. Hullult ruudu mustrit, pluusel, seelikul
4. Loomulikud lokid või sasipea
5. Kõrge värvliga semi-laiad teksad
6. Tume satiin õlapaeltega öösärk
7. Kahte tooni Oxford tüüpi kingad
8. Vana üle-elusuuruses mantel, soovituslikult vanaisa oma
9. Suured vanakooli prillid
10. Suhtumine. Mina näiteks ei suitseta, aga võtaks hea meelega näppu sõõriku ja polsterdusega rinnakatest soovitan ammugi loobuda.

PS. Kõige parem osa on see, et kuigi selles kollaažis kasutasin Isabel Marant, MAX&Co, Agent Provocateur ja hunnikutes Etsy vintaaž leide, siis tegelikkuses saab kogu komplekti kokku alla 100€ luusides ringi Humana Vintage poes, Uuskasutuskeskuses või mistahes lähimas kaltsukas mis sul jalaulatuses on.

PSPS. PATŠOKID!

As I never had to fake that I love Twin Peaks – I don’t have to suffer thru summer listening to all the fans preaching about the new season. I already knew it’s going to be amazing, I always knew it. Ok maybe I was a tiny bit skeptical, but let those thoughts rest in the pit. So I decided to create something for other fans, a style cheat of some sort, as I predict Twin Peaks fashion comeback is real. Starting with sweaters.

1. Fake or real Mohair or Cashmere pastel shirt
2. Your dad’s old ugly sweater
3. Checkers & some more checkers, on your skirt & on your shirt
4. Natural curls or bedhead
5. Mom jeans
6. Dark satin strappy dress
7. Two tone brogue shoes
8. Old oversized coat, preferably grandpa’s
9. Big ass vintage eyewear
10. The last step is about attitude, I don’t smoke so I’d go with eating donuts and another clue is to give up on padded bras, burn them.

PS. The best part is, even tho I made this collage using Isabel Marant, MAX&Co, Agent Provocateur & a bunch of vintage Etsy stuff, you can totally pull it off for under 100€ shopping in Humana Vintage, Uuskasutuskeskus or whatever closest second-hand store you’ve got there.

PSPS. SHOULDERPADS!

 

Nagu kauni-roosa-flamingo-kimono fotolt paistab, oleme Taneliga nelja aastaga juba väikestviisi visuaalselt meenutamas vana abielupaari, tegelikult oleme abielus hoopis Kunstiakadeemiaga ja neljandat aastat veame aksessuaarikursust mille raames disaini magistrandid nullist pakendini ühe Eesti disaintoote välja mõtlevad ja valmis toodavad. Eelduseks müüdavus, tiražeerimine, skandinaavialik stiil, sihtgrupi analüüs, logo ja pakend ja lõpuboss näituse läbiviimine. Tänavune näitus-müük asub Tali disainipoes Kotzebue 33 majas ja eriti tuusaks teeb KÄEATLAS näituse see, et iga tööd esitlevad töö loonud disaineri käte keraamiline replika, täiesti päris koopia nende endi kätest, sellise tuusa ekspositsiooni eest oli omakorda vastutav andekas Sigrid Maria Luitsalu, kes kõik need käed valmis tegi. Samuti täiega tuusa postri ja graafilised visuaalid tegi meie väljamaa tudeng Hansel Tai. Ja veel tahaks südamest tänada Tali perenaist Triinu Tiiselit, selle eest, et ta meid juba teist aastat kodustab ja oma disainpoodi noorte disainerite loomet müüki võtab. Paljude nimekate kohalike disainerite jaoks on oma turunduslik teekond alanud just Talist ja see on suur asi omaette.

Näitus on väljas 9 juunini, ärge istuge pepu otsas, näitusele näitusele (ja kõike saab osta ka).
As you can see from this pink-flamingo-infused-kimono photograph, I and Tanel are slowly starting to look like an old married couple, 4 years of teaching design MA students accessories course makes us married indeed but to the Estonian Academy of Arts. Our students build a Scandinavian, sellable, target group oriented product & package from idea to the reality and present it with a badass exhibition each spring. This year the sale-exhibit takes place in Tali design shop at Kotzebue 33 Tallinn & it’s called HAND ATLAS. The name has its roots within the hands that are holding the works at the exhibition, each work held by a ceramic replica of its designer’s actual hands. The hands are made by one of our amazingly talented students Sigrid Maria Luitsalu. I’d also like to give an applause to our student Hansel Tai for creating such awesome graphic design materials. And last but not least, the lady of the Tali house, Triinu Tiisel has been truly inspirational and welcoming for the second year in a row already. Taking in new designers, making space to sell Estonian design and trusting new talent, it’s a big deal for all of us & many known designers has started off in Tali.

The show is opened until June 9, raise your butts and enjoy the designs (buy some too).
