It’s the Olympics this year and, let’s just be honest here, we’ll probably be glued to the TV during the 3 weeks the competition will take place; we’re going to watch the trampoline jumps as if our very son was taking part in them. Rio is going to be the centre of the world and even though we love the show, we don’t really care for sports, today Carolina Mizrahi is our favourite Brazilian. Her pictures are a perfect mix between Art Direction and styling and she’s got the good eye. Carolina, we know you’re not gonna be making the moves with thesynchronized swimming girls, but if you had a flag, we’d bet on you.
Shoes are basically very important; you choose your shoes, then your thong and from then on, it’s easy peasy. We also know that any man or woman with good shoes it’s just trustworthy. That’s why, and with the aim that we will all learn, we’re talking about Arrels Barcelona today. This shoe brand goes for everything handmade and craft, good and decent work conditions and whatever colourful, which we obviously love. In every collection they collaborate with artists and studios from around the world; from Hey Studio or Lara Costafreda in this first one to, surprise surprise, Neil Harbisson for the next one. Keep your eyes peeled because there are many news to come and you’ll want Arrels for slippers.
We still have to see if photography is coming to an end, but what’s clear is that Lernert & Sander are putting their money on moving image and, god forbid, they’re doing it good; with very witty concepts, exquisite aesthetic taste and a wonderful sense of humour, this creative duo based in Amsterdam keeps us in an awe since way before La Monda was even born (we can’t quite understand why we’ve never featured any of their work). They might be everywhere, but we couldn’t miss the chance and they deserve a mention here, on your favourite magazine.
