pop art

It's just the weirdest thing that while I am focusing on finishing the Dark Glamour Gothic post, there is color all around me... day-glow at that! How am I supposed to think straight?? Anyway, this is a daily debacle for a fashion designer and I am used to think about things that are not here to think about at that time. But as it is, a good press article never comes at the wrong time and I always in particular look forward to Olivier Rohrbach's selections of "IT-things" of the moment.

This seasons picks of Pop Art pieces do clearly speak for themselves... and I am so proud to be featured among such great timeless designs of my long time favorite Jean-Charles de Castelbajac as well as Stephen Sprouse (who sadly died only a few years ago due to lung cancer. It's the reason I finally stopped smoking 2 years ago...)

On a much happier note: Thanks Olivier for the eternally funky selections, as always!

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
