Design of the day – The greenest shoe in the world

Launched at Amsterdam’s International Fashion week last month, these biodegradable trainers certainly stole the spot light. Designed by OAT, the “Fresh Virgin Collection” are fully biodegradable and can be planted when you’ve worn them to death! They also have little seeds in the tongue which grow into beautiful wild flowers.  Founded by innovator Christian Maats, OAT spent two years sourcing the best materials and cleanest design for the shoes. The collection of men and women’s trainers are revolutionary in eco-friendly design which you can literally wear into the ground!

Design of the day – Orla Kiely’s exclusive collection for Citreon

 

Legendary  print and fashion designer Orla Kiely, has created a special collection for car manufacturer Citreon. The DS3 1.6 Hdi range, compiles of four designs, each boasting one of her signature retro prints; Green Acorn, Multi-stem, Spot Stem and Multi-Acorn. The individual print is layered on the roof of the car and everything from the head-rests, wing mirrors, wheels, mats and windows are customised. It’s the perfect style-mobile for any fashionista.

The website is beautifully composed with each car set in a miniature cardboard box which twirls around like its magic. Then a scenic theme pops up and the car becomes a piece of furniture or fashion accessory, poised in the middle of the box. Oh it’s wonderful!

Now, what about price I hear you shout! Well, depending on what your preferences are and what you want customised determines how much you pay, roughly the prices start from £16,000.

Design of the day

Perfect furniture for a fashionista!

Revealed at the [D3] Design Talents at imm cologne last month, this multi-functional storage chest doubles up as a handbag! It can be carried like a bag but also as a piece of portable furniture, this piece is definitely up my street!

Created by young designer Anna Lorenz, the “Home Traveller” was apart of her graduation project. The fashion/furniture handbag is meant to be a smart accessory for the home, spacious like a chest but more flexible than traditional furniture.  The bag is made from leather and the base from wood. I hope she’ll expand her range and bring out a variety of colours so I can have one for every room and occasion!
