record the day, from uk

she found a way to remember days. by days...
it's a sort of personal calendar.

these are the things she loves.
she's always jotting things down,
keeping images from magazines
and scraps of whatever excites her
fastened to record cards.
they used to get left floating around
in the bottom of her bag,
occasionally deposited around the house
or tidied away into drawers.
now they are here.

i personally use to visit her as soon as i have time.

sixpack, group of designers from france.

sixpack france starts emerging as a brand,
but a brand different from the rest.
a brand with a new approach
and new process for doing things.
with mutual interests, everybody wins.
launching of the shop online.
the sixpack family opens up
to new members such as the institubes' record label.
they soon appear trendy,
but it's just a peeps' thing.
exhibitions and articles in magazines,
art and business, success and misunderstandings.
suckers and haters.
i personally adore their t-shirt collection:
the best of the web in its category!

lisa corti, textile designer from milano.

lisa was born in asmara (ethiopia)
where she lived up to when she was 19.
the beauty of the african people is imprinted in her memories:
their ancient decorative tradition
and the brightly coloured costumes worn by the local women.
these recollections all naturally belong
to her cultural background.
Afte, she started a long series of passionate trips
and long stays discovering the ways of life and lifestyles
of villages and cities in the various regions of india.
since then, lisa has carried out an in-depth search
on the wide range of fabrics and patterns
in various areas of india,
creatively transforming her designs,
materials and colours in an infinite number
of objects and articles
intended as house decorations and furnishings.
nowaday she's the owner of many shops over the world.
one is just closed to my house:
lisa corti emporium - via lecco 2 - milano.
