I first met the makers of The Tallis at the Pop-up Corner event at the MAMCO (Geneva) in early December and fell in love with their beanies. I ended up getting a grey cashmere one with a sheepskin pompom and wear it every day! It is absolutely delicious, especially during these sub-zero days in Geneva! But the love does not stop there, just check out the other fury products available at The Tallis including versatile scarves and headbands. Best of all Tallis uses ethical fur , ie responsibly sourced or vintage fur that can be up-cycled.

The Tallis is having a preview of their AW 15/16 collection on 19th February at their Geneva showroom. Come check out their very cool products in preparation for next year’s cold!

Obviously these pictures are from a few weeks ago when the weather was alot warmer. Now we are all bundled up! But I love to see the two of them having a good time…

If you are in Geneva on the 15th November, stop by l’asticot (Rue des Etuves 10) as they will be having a samples sale from previous seasons and exclusive pieces…

Have a great weekend, the sun will be shining at least on Saturday.

I was able to attend the grand opening of l’asticot’s flagship store in Geneva and was really impressed at the design of the store. I had a nice chat with Inga, one of the brand’s partners, who explained the concept of the store’s design. The center isle serves as the thematic representation of the clothing collection on display. This A/W 2014-2015’s theme is ‘From Russia with Love’ so the mini-city (made entirely out of carton) shows iconic Soviet era buildings and scenes. Underneath the display area is a space for kids to play while parents are busy checking out the clothes. Very cool.

Also something that I really like about l’asticot is the environmently-friendly approach of the brand and the fact that all the clothes are manufacturered in Portugal…

Visit l’asticot at rue des Etuves 10, Geneva.

What a past year filled with colour and great memories! Although I haven’t had the time to keep up with the blog as I originally hoped to, it is still a great way to capture important events in our lives and present beautiful family design finds and meet the great people behind them! My 2014 schedule doesn’t look like it will be any calmer then 2013’s, but I look forward to the new adventures it may bring!
