The making of "Le Boudoir"

the scenery for our "cupcake" shoot

Yesterday was an exhausting day for everyone involved in the shoot. We started pretty early in the morning, which, at this time of the year, when everyone's just waiting for the warmth, struggles with lethargy and dreams of a whole day in bed.

Mara, the supernice model of Wiener Models had to be brave - some of the shots were taken as good as outside, and it had -6 degrees Celsius (that's 21,2 degrees Fahrenheit!!) and she had to pose every style for like 20 minutes, with nothing more than thin socks and dresses.

sometimes we spoiled her with a little fan heater

some of the collectibles

And you know what? She still smiled- but after every shoot I had to wrap her in my cashmere leggings and wool pullover!

The choice you have with shooting at the Wiener Zimmer is amazing- Conny has an amazing range of collectibles- I could have done thousands of sujets- my favourites were this really old statue of a boy and the rocking horse- I suppose both are more than 100 years old.

I also fell in love with a playsuit for kids from the 19th century and a sketch block from the 20's-30's where someone drew all pages full with typical women's hair-and fashion images of that time (I regret that I didn't take a picture of those but I will go back and take one for you to see).

Michele, the photographer had her fun too- at least it looked like- she was comfortable with her thick coat and happy with the surrounding.

As we moved inside everyone felt warm and cosy and Mara, our model was happiest with the "Cupcake" Take- she ate the whole chocolate cupcake at onces.

On the last series of images we did, my comfortable wool pullover had his appearance as well- a thrift shop find- topped up with golden Pebelle stocking and a brilliant white and golden make up from Shlomit, we just got the look we wanted.

All in all I enjoyed this shoot so much, it's the first time I could use images from my pool of clothes too and not only present my items as a textile designer, but do a stylist's job as well.

A big thank you to all people involved:

Le boudoir

I have a shooting coming up this week- it's going to be real white, which (you must agree) is very unusal for me-
but it will be topped up with utterly cute Pebelle lace/dotty socks- a perfect partner for any spring shoe trends.

The location will be the "Wiener Zimmer", a unique place to shop for unique furniture- the owner has a range of amazing collectibles from all over the world. They way she puts them all together is unbelieveable, so much love towards all this treasures- which you can feel when you enter.
I totally fell in love with a metall daybed and pillows with little red english sceneries- some of this items will surely appear within the photos.

If imagine this scenerie,re-watch the movie: "Pride and Prejudice" and watch this video, directed by Miikka Lommi you will may get an idea what I'm up to.

A glimpse on my new work

Through the theatre project I worked on beginning of this year I got hooked on working with Latex and the idea of manipulating hosiery even further.

So I started experimenting with Leggings- and as Latex alone isn't enough for me I have created this wonderful Glitter Latex Tie Dye Leggings.......here's a detail of one.

They will be available soon. And be sure: every single one of them is unique!

what a shame I haven't done this.

This needs sharing- so next time you buy one of my items hang it up on the wall in front of you, relax, open your mind and tell me what you see after staring at it for 30 minutes.


The fellowship of Pebelle part X: Pick your pic with Richard Kelly

Have you ever heard of the world of horsebones?
No? Well, you will, after that post. And if you are through with it, follow this man's photographical universe and it will change the way you see your everyday surrounding.
At least it worked like that with me.

Before I start, I have to mention that during my research for this blog,I skipped through all his images: on his homepage, his blog, his Flickr and so on. I had a hard time choosing pics for this blog post, I might have to ask him if I am allowed to do a wallpaper full of his images.

Okay, let's start and let you know who I am talking about:

Richard Kelly, a man I met (shall I mention it was online, risking to cause a yawn?) on my hunt after certain images I needed for my work.
Our paths crossed in a fun way: two years ago, as the wonderful ladies of Fan Death got a couple Pebelle tights for their tour.

So, at some point, I caught a glimpse from a Polaroid taken of them, with Dandi, the lead singer wearing my tights. But it wasn't easy to hunt the man down, that did the image. The girls were still on tour and hard to get hold of. All they remembered was a guy taking pics of them backstage- but in the end I found him and asked him if I could have one.
Richard was so nice to send me a whole bunch of images within an instant and somehow we stayed in touch.

The next thing I remember was me going through a phase, that every artist has at some point- it's the phase were you think about giving up what you're doing.
Somehow I must have mentioned it to him, a week later I had a little parcel in my post box with Steve Martin's autobiography. Born standing up. The title says it all.

Included in the parcel was a nice note, telling me that it's inpsiring as he never gave up and see what happened.

So I read the book and yes, it helped me continue. A much bigger motivation to just stick to what you're good at is Richard's history:

He developed an interest for photography after leaving school with no qualifications. At 16 he went to work for a local newspaper as a mail room boy.
From there he got to meet the staff photographers. From that point on, Richard went to night school to study photography and did a series of related jobs such as lab technician processing film and exhibition printer.
His aim was to save up enough money to do a degree in Documentary and Fine Art photography and so he did. After finishing he assisted various photographers for a number of years before branching out on his own.
Now he's based in London and shoot all sorts, from Advertising to Music.
And through shooting music we met.

Here's him shooting Late of the pier in Japan (one of the many trips Richard did, which had a big effect on him).

Here some other musicians he had in front of his lense.

John Cooper Clarke

Florence and the Machine

Arctic Monkeys

Pete Youknowwho

And last year in October we finally met in person. On my last trip to London Richard took me on a tour through London's east end and altough I thought I know this town pretty well, I realized I have NEVER been to one of the oldest pubs in town, where Jack the Ripper found his victims. So this was pretty educational for me.

Richard also loves to show off his fantastic trained body in Pebelle catsuits.

Looking at his work I do see the difference in his professional work and the every day impressions he gives us on his blog.

To compare you can go to his homepage http://www.rkellyphoto.com and his wonderful blog called THE WORLD OF HORSEBONES

I personally love his polaroids:

Or the ones he does on his many trips:

Or his fashion ones:

and so on and so on.....





The fellowship of Pebelle part IX: The fabulous world of signore A. Pasqualini

I meet him at university first, this is ages ago, our ways crossed many times, but whenever I see him I feel good- a man with a golden heart,cool and calm but very deep. And so are his paintings.
Originally from Südtirol Andreas was raised in Trentin. His bilingual upbringing was maybe also a reason to move to Vienna, were he studied painting at the University of applied arts under Johanna Kandl.
Since his degree 2008 his life is crowned with luxury and a jetset lifestyle with no end in sight

Just recently he helped Samstag Shop in Vienna to cause another traffic jam in the road outside the shop with his X-Mas Window painting:

Last year he surprised us all with this huge ( I mean literally huge, what you see on three images here is actually just ONE)- drawing: " Triumph von Bacchus und Ariadne"
It's like an hommage to all his friends and all the people you constantly bump into when you go out in Vienna- for me the picture represents the loop you find yourself in with life- Friends coming, friends going but you always stay, you have to stay with yourself so you can never leave the picture and just witness changes.
I'm within the picture as well- wearing PEBELLE tights- can you spot me?

His artistic developement shows a strong concentration on exploring various environments such as a village communities, night clubs, party life and so on. His view is as pychological as ironic but always based on intense self-monitoring.

Right now Andreas works on his new webpage which will be online soon- so don't forget to come back and click on www.andreaspasqualini.com

As natural born fashionista Andreas always manages to pull off a look that is flammboyant and casual at the same time, it definitely raises an old lady's eyebrow I'm sure, but that's how we like it. So here he is modelling off his Pebelle socks.

One thing I don't want to miss out on:

A while back he was part of an art project called "Blanke Südsee", which performed in Barcelona- Andreas showed himself responsible for giving the blank surface of the t-shirts legs to walk with. See yourself:
