Last April 2014, the jury of the Festival International de Mode et de Photographie à Hyères, presided over by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon (creative directors of Kenzo), rewarded the winner of the Première Vision grand Jury Prize, Kenta Matsushige, a young Japonese designer.

 

 

 

Thanks to a partnership between Villa Noailles festival and Petit Bateau, the winner of the Grand Prix du Jurry Première Vision is granted "carte blanche" to reinvent the brand's iconic pieces, while perpetuating its traditional know-how.

Kenta Matsushige has chosen to revisit Petit Bateau tee-shirt and the sailor-shirt in a clean, subdued, architectural style. The creations are simple and sophisticated.

The trend platform and creative agency The Inspiration Provider creates a 4-sense moodboard installation at the Internet Age Media Weekend in collaboration with Preforma Design.

 

 

The inspiration provider has  created its first moodboard installation in collaboration with the young product design studio Preforma Design, to be exhibited at the first Internet Age Media weekend held in Barcelona last March.

 

The installation is a translation of their digital moodboards to the physical world, providing stimulus for the four senses. The aesthetic research is about the concept of blurred boundaries between physical and digital world, creating an environment of innovative feeling. 

 

 

A color palette built around the Klein Blue, a color that reminds, for its strong power of light, a screen color more than a color from the nature, gives the starting point of a research of novelty materials that are natural but have new properties, or synthetic materials that emulate natural properties for sustainable designs. Along with the materials, pictures of artists, photographers and designers complete the mood board, together with found manipulated materials by The inspiration provider themselves.

 

The installation is a collaboration with Preforma Design, that specially designed the structure of the vitrine for the occasion. A design that allows the moodboard to have its perfect physical environment.

Mansur Gavriel is a New York City based design label founded by Rachel Mansur and Florina Gavriel in April of 2012. They create high quality leather bags. 

 

 

Mansur Gavriel evokes Italy in the ’60′s, or a classic California easiness—warm, natural leather, sunny colors, and a casual elegance. Now in its fourth season, Mansur Gavriel has settled into a compact studio on New York’s Lower East Side and their bucket bags, backpacks, and totes have quickly become a staple among the fashion flock, easily spotted in any given street-style slideshow.

Inspired by the contrast of warm, natural textures and the clear, clean intensity of pop colors, Mansur Gavriel’s leather goods are made with the highest quality Italian leather and age old craftsmanship in the Veneto region of italy.
