Dearest Yellowtracers, Team Yellowtrace is back from Milan Design Week once again. Holy moly – what an amazing trip. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite moments from the #MDW14. Also, I wanted to explain that this year we are taking things to the next level with our Milan report, also known as MILANTRACE, Edizione 2014.
You see, with the proliferation of social media channels, blogs and websites, it feels like Milan Design Week gets washed over and forgotten in no time. Instagram pics are uploaded and #hashtagged, press releases are churned out, quick roundups are shared. But what about presenting it all in a cohesive fashion, addressing the highs and the lows of all the events, Milan’s culture and architecture, comprehensively exploring the sheer enormity and beauty of the World’s premier design event? Well, that’s where we come in.
American photographer, Autumn de Wilde has designed a pair of transparent and reflective jewel toned structures for a photo-shoot in the dry Californian landscape. Made of a combination of mirror and coloured plexiglass, images of the landscape are reflected on the structure, and the landscape is simultaneously cast with rose, warm gold and aqua tinted sunlight. The reciprocal exchange of colour, light and refraction are truly exquisite.
Fate brought them together, beauty is their vision and together their two heads make “one brain.” Parish Stapleton and Marty Lochmann – stylist and photographer duo – create stunning images together and share their knowledge and experience through Stylist Lab, where they run a series of in-depth interior styling workshops. At the core of the Lab’s philosophy is attention to detail, a focus on concept, and – importantly – belief in practical skills and hands-on experience. Here is a look into this creative hub and the pair who make it happen.
Palookaville Fotografagentur represents a number of Norway’s finest photographers, focussing on creating commercial visuals with an artistic edge. Photographer Siren Lauvdal offers a selection of stunning photographs of Bohemian living for Elle Decoration, with superb Scandinavian styling.
Props & still life styling literally comes to life in this interesting video titled “Vida Liquida” directed and produced by Las Coleccionistas.
