Justeve on a mission
Just back from Milan, last week, Marie, the creative director & I were in wonderful Paris, looking at fabrics for the FW18 Collection.
At the world’s leading fabric fair, Premiere Vision, there are so many beautiful fabrics and it’s always great to meet up with our suppliers at their stand.
It is crazy how we are always working a year ahead, but we love the process and the trendspotting.
We won’t tell you too much details about what we ordered for next winter because we want to keep you guys in suspend but we can already tell you that the fall / winter 2018 fashion season heads ambitiously towards a very expressive enthusiastic future.
Materials and patterns strive for originality with humorous offshoots which gives it unique looks.
Also very into details/ accessories – the next winter season alternates between a desire for calm, simplicity and an ornamental cacophony with opulent decorations.
So much to see, luckily we still had one more day planned at the fair…

For us,design minded travellers; Mama Shelter was a must –try in Paris. The Mama Shelter is not only a special hotel, but also an adventure park with amusing ideas.
Let’s talk about the hotel’s main draw: the design. The overall look is modern and stylish. The interior is the work of design-god Philippe Starck.
The rooms are big enough for Parisian standars. It has a 24inch iMac, which can be used as computer, tv, radio, and movies on demand, a bathroom stocked with their own sweet smelling products, and everywhere design touches. A really amusing touch; the lampshades are made of Batman masks. The furniture and accessories are all by Starck ofcourse 😉
We dined in the hotel in the evening, there is a pizzeria (only open for lunch) and an amusing brasserie with floating tyres on the ceiling. A lot of locals showed up, you know, French people, which is great for such a hip hotel. By the way, breakfast is served in the brasserie and it is very upscale, large and delicious!
Mama is doing their patrons right. What can we say, Mama knows best;-)
I can already promise that the next Justeve – wintercollection will be wild so stay tuned… 😉
