royal wedding + Style / Tuesday, 12 Apr 2011

perfection.

I’ve showed this top image before, but it’s such perfection that I need to show it again and show a couple of others. This is what I have in mind when we sell our souvenirs at Portobello Road the day of the royal wedding: floral, loud & proud. And yes, perched on bags of rice.

royal wedding souvenirs. better late than never!

Dear readers, I’m so pleased to announce a little project that Cramer and I, with support from our British counterpart, have whipped up in a few short weeks. Although we’re a bit late entering the game, we have arrived with GUSTO to present our line of souvenirs celebrating the wedding on Prince William and Kate Middleton later this month.
Now, to all of you who have known me since I was a wee little one, this will come as no surprise as you and I both know that I was going to marry Prince William. After a couple of trips to England with no royal invitation to meet HRH, I knew it was time to MOVE ON. So, I met and married my Danish prince and William, clearly heartbroken, finally decided to move on too and propose to his gf of 10 years. About time, buddy! And I give my full support. We have come up with tote bags, keychains, mugs, commemorative plates all celebrating the wedding of the year. Check it all out now on out Etsy shop and place your pre-order. Our products will be ready any day now so now’s your chance! Not only that, but Paul and I will be in London the weekend of the royal wedding selling souvenirs with our dear friends on PORTOBELLO ROAD so come and visit and tell your friends! We can’t wait to be there with the masses in our little booth exploiting this wedding! I’ll be the one in the mock wedding dress.

Go check out the full line at The House That Lars Built Etsy shop.

Art + Artist Feature + dream jobs + paper + Style / Friday, 11 Mar 2011

paper dresses

Holy cow. I had to do a few double takes when I stumbled upon these beauties. Isabelle de Borchgrave creates historical dress creations out of paper. PAPER! The one above is inspired by Marie de Medici from 1555. Her works are on display in a show called “Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgravea” at the Legion of Honor, Fine Arts Museums in San Francisco. 
This one is based off of a Charles Frederick Worth dress from 1898

Her works are about “loving something, absorbing it, and giving it back. My goal is to find myself in front of a dress that gives me the same shock I got at the Metropolitan.” Check out the full feature on 1st Dibs. This is yet another one to be filed under “dream jobs.”

Heart Attack

Ever received a heart attack? The paper, less life-threatening type? Well, consider yourself attacked. Happy Valentine’s day. PS–“kærlighed” means “love” in Danish. PPS–wish me luck, this is my last day with long hair. Hip hip.

Design + flowers + paper / Thursday, 3 Feb 2011

oversized flowers are everywhere!

I walked into Magasin du Nord, a big department store here, and what did I see? Huge, paper, colorful flowers everwhere! In the store windows, in the make-up aisles, on the men’s sweaters tables. Ring a bell? Now, in my dreams the window dressers are regular readers of this here blog and couldn’t help but get thrilled at the idea of paper and flowers from our wedding. K, I won’t flatter myself, but Magasin, I would love to help you out on your next season’s decor. Let me know, could be fun.
