The fellowhip of Pebelle part III: VUM as in Womb

Jennifer Pearl (ex-Lion Fever, Lost Kids) and Christopher Badger (founding member of Grand Elegance) are VUM. Partners in crime, and co-conspirators for this new throbbing noir heartbeat.

I first stumbled upon Jennifer's brilliant voice by listening to her former band Lion Fever and the depth of her singing touched me.
In the same year VUM formed and the mix of surf guitar, analog drum machine and vocals makes it difficult to turn off. I became an immediate fan of that new project and through lucky circumstances I had the chance to get to know this lovely lady personally and even see VUM perform live in LA.

An exchange happened and I was trusted to create costumes for VUM's first video shoot in the Joshua Tree desert. The video will be released soon and you can be sure that I will post it on here.

You can find the music on Myspace:
Here's a little taste:

Find more artists like VUM at Myspace Music

or buy her limited cassettes at Amoeba, LA or in Viennas Samstag Shop!
But be quick there aren't many left.

So here's some goodies of that vibrant talent and hopefully you like it too.


The fellowship of Pebelle part II: I kill a man with Monique Maion

Monique Maion - Straight from São Paulo, Brazil, she was considered “the new voice” by Rolling Stone Magazine, “Brazilian Female Tom Waits” by the blogs and “Free Soul” by the Swiss newspaper Der Bund. Monique shows her versatility with her variety of projects.

We hooked up via Myspace and she was an immeditate fan of my work. Later on she urprised me with these nice snapshots she did, wearing leggings by Pebelle.
I was even more positively surprised as I discovered a video on the net of her performing at the Mauerpark Karaoke in Berlin-her beeing so close and rocking an event that I would so wish to take place in Vienna. Also because I've been there myself and even filmed it.

You can find her on
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/monmaion
Twitter: http://twitter.com/moniquemaion
and here: http://moniquemaion.bandcamp.com/album/lola
So here she is.


The fellowship of Pebelle part I: Get your hopes up with Actually Huizenga ( Hard Place)

My new series " The fellowship of Pebelle" is a résumé of whom I worked with in the last two years. With enthusiasm and beeing communicative a multifaceted assemblage of people came together that I worked with. I want to take the upcoming end of this year as a chance to present every one of those great faces. And talents.

Part I:

Get your hopes up - Actually Huizenga

I first noticed A.Huizenga as the lead singer of a wonderful combo called "Hard Place" when they rocked the Fluc in Vienna 2,5 years ago.
Within minutes I turned into a fan of this outgoing and beautiful lady and some time after the gig we got in contact.

So here she is wearing one of her Pebelle's leggings.

Actually Huizenga and Hard Place are located in Los Angeles, where they create music and work on film projects.
I love the aesthetics and patchwork style she's using in her films. The setting & costumes are diverse and some uptight people might find it too provoking, but that's what art does: it provokes and makes you ponder about what you see.

Here's a little example for Hard Place's music but if you want to dive deeper take a scroll through Actually's you tube account named huizenga: http://www.youtube.com/user/huizenga

She also work on a music project called "Wet Look", underneath you find a second video for that project.


Gender discussion on hosiery

How do you feel about men in hosiery, let me know!

This image was taken in a club during Fashionweek Vienna and I think it does show a lot.

Pure Magical Love

Talented lady Heather Lynn of Pure Magical Love (some of you might know her old band "The Capricorns"), based in Chicago is a non-stop creative machine.
From doing this lovely music with lots of organs in the background, hosting colour- and mindblowing performances (which I can't attend as I live too far away), creating her own costumes and now even running an own store ....... nothing can stop her.

So I always feel proud to discover images of her using PEBELLE items to go with her world.

You can check her Music page on her Myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/puremagicalloveisreal

Antigone costumes

Images by FotoPalffy

Due to it's success the two plays König Ödipus and Antigone are on stage again this month.
I was honoured to re-create the original costume ideas for ANTIGONE. As I have already been working with Superated on the costumes for the Ödipus play it was a good way to move the same theme to the other act.
If you live in Vienna or close by there's still a chance to see one or even both of the plays @Theater Spielraum!
Just check their page for available tickets: http://www.theaterspielraum.at/

A Forest

New works by Pebelle.

Come along. Into the trees. Hide!

Come closer and see
see into the trees
find the girl
while you can
Come closer and see
see into the dark
just follow your eyes
just follow your eyes

I hear her voice
calling my name
the sound is deep
in the dark
I hear her voice
and start to run
into the trees
into the trees

into the trees

Suddenly I stop
but i know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest
all alone

The girl was never there
it's always the same
I'm running towards nothing
again and again and again

Mosquitos bytes &Slug fights in the Entchanted forest

After several hours shooting my new work with quirky photographer lady Michele Pauty we were all real happy for our feet to touch concrete.

In the middle of the underwoods (although real close to a road) we fought against slugs, mosquitos and all kinds of creepy crawly things to shoot the first results of my newly started concept....which is all about getting invisible.

Camouflage for every surrounding.

We start with the forest.

Here are the first pics I took on the set.......

Crafts at the MQ for a good reason......

Now the funny 3 days of taking part in a craft workshop with kids are over and we have managed to create a big bunch of textiles squares with the kids.
Soon we will finish it off to a wonderful big patchwork and hand it over to Designers against AIDS.

Emma Bell, Polona Dolzan, Scott Ramsay Kyle and Pebelle have been creating patches as well.


Creativity for Designers against AIDS: workshops for Kids hosted at the MQ

Commencing on July 19th "Fish and Chips Twice Please?!" will be hosting an array of features promoting AIDS/HIV awareness.
On the programme are craft workshops for kids in co-operation with JEF, live knitting circles, special DAA film screening and of course a much anticipated presentation.
The knitting and craft workshops offer kids and passers by the opportunity to contribute a square to add to a special patchwork we are creating to raise AIDS/HIV awareness which will be given to Designers Against AIDS (DAA) upon completion.

I am happy to announce that I participate tomorrow (Monday) during the workshop sessions with kids and will also create a PEBELLE square for the patchwork that will be donated to DAA.

DAA was founded in Belgium, and the internationally active project aims to reach young people through the media of fashion, celebrity, music and sport. Their initiative and work has been injected into worldwide media and has been featured in publications including; Vogue, i-D, ELLE, Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair.
Previous contributors and collaborations include H&M, Rihanna, Gareth Pugh, Bernhard Willhelm, Katy Perry and Jeremy Scott

The DAA Homepage is worth visiting:


Whooooopeeeeee Whoopi

Whoopi Goldberg is in town and not only that.

Friday afternoon she went shopping and what did she get?

A pair of PEBELLE Legging at Samstag Shop.

I feel very honoured and this is the reason to write a little something about it.

Whoopi is one of the main guests of this year's life ball, as she an icon supporting the fight against AIDS for a long time.


Pebelle and Allude

A couple of months ago Sammy Zayed, super-busy and super-successful Austrian stylist, used Pebelle tights to go with ALLUDE cashmere for their new advertising campaign, which was put together by agency Tatendrang.
Check out Allude cashmere products on their page: www.allude-cashmere.com

Here are the results, amazing images. Love it.


Pebelle showcase @ "Fish and Chips twice please?!"

My favourite fashion exhibit here in Vienna: "Fish and Chips, twice please?!" at the Freiraum 21 in MQ!

Opening it's doors a month ago this Contemporary fashion exhibition is presenting the UK as a hub for international design talent.

The exhibition is directed and curated by British fashion designer, Emma Bell, and curator Polona Dolzan. Presenting the industry's most forward thinking creatives including designers; Louise Gray, Charlie Le Mindu, Scott Ramsay Kyle, Piers Atkinson, Dashing Tweeds, Louise Amstrup, Cooperative Designs, Nicholas Kirkwood and Craig Lawrence.

Here is a link to their blog: http://fishandchipstwiceplease.blogspot.com/

As a part of the exhibition's accompanying programme the focus is on featuring "New designer showcases".
The idea of this element was to highlight the presence of new and emerging designers within current industry so our programme allows for a selection of design graduates and start-up labels to present their work as par
t of a rotating showcase space within the gallery.

Now PEBELLE is presenting part of her new collection "forest and veins" for the next three weeks.

Here's a little preview:


Pure Magical Love

Wonderful Heather Lynn of PURE MAGICAL LOVE, the sound-mistress of a neo-hippie-organ-disco love to wear her Pebelle leggings.
Once more she used them in her Neo-Baroque Ballett and if you take a close look you will be able in which minute they turn up on the screen.

Dough and Fruit Shooting "Industrial Acid House"

Last weekend Pebelle items were used for a shooting, hosted by Agency Tatendrang, based in Vienna.
"Industrial Acid House" - the scenery makes us feel as beeing placed right into the middle of a Mad-Max movie and the thought strucks us what it would have looked like if they had Pebelle items on their set.
I will get a few more pics from the Agency soon!
