Introducing TRASH4FLASH

TRASH4FLASH is a Athens based jewellery brand, designed by Katerina Stamatopoulou.

Katerina vision behind TRASH4FLASH is to highlight the power and beauty of upcycled jewellery and promote a more ethical approach towards fashion. T4F is introduced in the jewellery market as a fashion brand, based on the originality of forward concept designs.
Strongly supporting the benefit of uniqueness, all products are one-off offering the fans the advantage to stand out. 

"Modern art constantly changes faces according to the socio-political conditions which bring forward new artistic movements. Over-consumption has led to the over-possession of products which tend to become useless; just plain objects at the end of their life cycle. One of today’s movements is trash art; the creation of artifacts using discarded material, which they now come into play in order to redefine art, in this case, the art of making jewellery."

Here a glimpse of the Elite collection for this winter.

Introducing Bambie & Butler Handbags Collection

Bambie & Butler is proud to present their luxurious debut collection. The British brand is responsible for designing a unique and stylish women’s wear and accessories line.

Bambie & Butler’s debut collection includes women’s daily wear, handbags, and accessories.

The woman sporting a Bambie & Butler design is bon vivant, sassy, and lives and breathes the luxury lifestyle. Born out of a dusty, vintage clothing chest, the Bambie & Butler designs evoke dreamy childhood memories of dressing up in Victorian Atelier whilst twirling in front of the vanity mirror of grandmother’s Rosewood cottage.

Madame Dauphine

Time practically stands still with Bambie & Butler in such a classic style, which forms the DNA of the brand. According to Bambie & Butler, “We at Bambie & Butler are a UK based luxury brand. We are eccentrically British, and at the heart of everything we create there is time-honored craftsmanship.” From the quality of fabric in their clothing designs to the fine details of the accessories line, Bambie & Butler only uses the finest techniques.
The pieces are crafted using only hand-embellishment techniques, which have been honed by Embroiders “Hand & Lock,” London. Est. 1767.
They also entrust their luxury leather needs with specialist, Pittards Plc, Est. 1826.

On top of their attention to fine craftsmanship, Bambie & Butler stresses the importance of shape and fit. To ensure the best fit, the brand ensures each step of the design process only selects from the best, starting with material. The Ethos of the brand is the base of the fabric, from which all design aesthetics are created. According to the brand, “A million people can design a tea dress, but very few can design a tea dress created from tea!”

To create a unique and signature look, Bambie & Butler focus on using a rich and opulent colour pallet in order to compliment the wearers’ surroundings. Available in various colours, from warm neutrals to rich jewel tones, customers will feel confident carrying any one of Bambie & Butler’s A/W 2014 handbags. Customers can choose from the Madame Pompadour, Mademoiselle Lisette, Madame Dauphine, and Mademoiselle De Clermont. Made with fine leathers, classic hardware, and luxurious sheepskin, the Bambie & Butler woman will be the envy of every British fashion mogul.

Julia Roberts for Calzedonia

Julia Roberts has been captured for the Italian brand Calzedonia the way we like her with a charming smile. In the commercial she is a real woman during a journey, discovering herself through places and meetings.

She is, in other words, the main character of the new promotional video called “Life is a journey”, which has been shot last summer in Scotland, Italy and France.

Starting from Scotland, where a pristine landscape requires silence and listen. Then there is Paris, where Julia is immersed, following the Seine as it was the flow of her existence, through bookstores, romantic encounters and dreaming atmospheres up to the sunset. But in a strong desire of authenticity, Julia’s awakening happens in the warm atmosphere of a farmhouse in the hills near Florence. A land of history, tradition and beauty, which will make her understand one important thing: Life is a journey, to enjoy at every step.

An emotional commercial, with an authentic and cinematographic taste, desired by Calzedonia to speak once again from women to women, through the most charming smile of contemporary cinema.
