Magical Mexicana!

Time for yet another Frida post, it’s been awhile and it’s raining today in Luxembourg. A woman I admire mucho, and Mexico of course!! Another contribution for the WS “I love…” challenge. Pendant was made with dreambox pendant from ARTchix Studio, added an image from their Viva Frida sticker sheet designed by moi. Text stamp used is from Paperbagstudio. While I’m at it, I’ll be doing a Shrine Pendant Make & Take at Munich’s Stempeloase on 29 June 2010. Stop by and say hello if you can!

Wird mal wieder Zeit für einen weiteren Frida-Beitrag, ist schon eine Weile her, und es regnet heute hier in Luxemburg. Eine Frau, die ich mucho bewundere ist Frida, und natürlich Mexiko!! Ein weiterer Beitrag für die MS-Herausforderung “Ich mag…”. Anhänger gemacht mit dem dreambox pendant von ARTchix Studio, hab ein Motiv vom Viva Frida Stickerbogen beigefügt, entworfen von moi. Textstempel ist von Paperbagstudio. Übrigens werde ich am 29. Juni 2010 ein  Schrein-Anhänger Make & Take  bei München’s Stempeloase machen. Schau doch einfach vorbei und sage  Hallo!

Somehow I keep stumbling across magazine articles inspired by Frida and thought I’d share some, too inspiring! The German magazine DECO showed Frida inspired home interior and dress style.


Irgendwie stolpere ich immer wieder über Artikel in Zeitschriften inspiriert von Frida und dachte, ich zeige sie hier. So inspirierend! Die dt. DECO zeigte hier Frida-inspiriertes Einrichten und Kleiden.

German LUNA published a black-and-white article with a Frida inspired style and a dash of color.


Die dt. LUNA hatte einen schwarz-weiß-Artikel inspiriert von Frida mit einem Hauch von Farbe.

On the occasion of the opening of the Frida Kahlo retrospective in Berlin (still running until 9 August 2010!) the German VOGUE May issue published a photo sequence from Karl Lagerfeld with Claudia Schiffer. Who would have thought that Claudia looks so good in Frida style, even with bushy eyebrows! While in Berlin in May I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition and was surprised to see so many people queue for Frida. She still rocks the art world!



Anläßlich der Eröffnung der Frida-Kahlo-Retrospektive in Berlin (noch bis 9. August 2010!) gab es in der dt. Mai-VOGUE eine Fotoreihe von Karl Lagerfeld mit Claudia Schiffer. Wer hätte gedacht, dass Claudia so gut aussieht im Frida-Stil, sogar mit dichten Augenbrauen. Als ich im Mai in Berlin die Ausstellung besuchte und sie wirklich genoß,  war ich vom Riesenandrang erstaunt. Frida rockt immer noch die Kunstwelt!

And last but not least  I LOVE UK’s Accessorize. London is full with their shops all over and they have several stores already in Germany and just hit the US in Washington DC. Their ethnic style is just gorgeous. The mother company Monsoon brings you beautiful elegant ethnic inspired clothing, not to be missed. For Spring/Sommer 2010 they are travelling with us to Mexico. Here are some of their Mexico inspired products I just love, and take a look at their look-books, I especially like the Monsoon Children, too much fun! And yes, you can order online, they ship worldwide.

Und zu guterletzt LIEBE ICH UK’s Accessorize. London ist rappelvoll mit Läden überall, einige Läden gibt es bereits in Deutschland und der erste wurde gerade in Washington DC/USA eröffnet. Der Ethnostil ist herrlich. Die Mutterfirma Monsoon bringt uns wunderschöne elegante ethno-inspirierte Kleidung und Deco, nicht verpassen. Für Frühjahr/Sommer 2010 entführen sie uns nach Mexiko. Hier sind einige Beispiele. Mag besonders Monsoon Children, sieht toll aus! Und ja, online bestellen geht auch, sogar recht schnell und bezahlbar, verschickt wird weltweit.


Full Monsoon Children Spring/Summer 2010 look book here

“Monsoon has developed a strong brand with a highly distinctive identity. The intrinsic beauty of fabric, colour and technique so evident in the early sourcing of Monsoon’s products from the Far East continues to exercise a strong influence.”

Full Accessorize Spring/Summer 2010 look book here

“Monsoon was founded in 1973 by Peter Simon following a period of selling shaggy woollen coats on the Portobello Road and hand block printed clothes from Rajasthan to anyone who would buy them. The original focus was always clothes with an ethnic origin from faraway places, including unusual dresses from Afghanistan and countries en route.”

“In the early 1980’s Monsoon started to sell a small collection of accessories which became so popular that the idea for the innovative new store format Accessorize was born.”

These two are my very own favorite acqusitions from a Munich and a London store:


Whacaca Charm Hoop Earrings                        Freida Floral Fringed Cross Body Bag

Very cool as well, me likes *** Mehr Schönes, dass mir gefällt


Mexicana embellished cuff                        Campeche Floral Tassel Shoulder Bag

Take a look at Accessorize’s look behind the scenes in Mexico:
