We went to London for several design events this September, and between a tweed blanket and a cup of tea we made some very interesting Art discoveries. You don't always find what you came for.

London is filled with amazing places to eat, yet we have to recommand, for those of you who don't know it, the always to die for Ottolenghi on 63 Ledbury Road in Notting Hill. Wether you like Middle Eastern food or not, it's a no brainer. For a quick lunch only. Try and get your hand on the outside stools for a feel of Notting Hill while lunching.

In summer, you go South....Here we are in Spain for a trip to Barcelona and Ibiza, looking for local handicraft and enjoying the beach, two things you can luckily do at the same time in a place like Ibiza....

Ibiza is definitely THE place to be in summertime. It is booming with inspiration and creativity and a great place for hunters like ourselves. We came too late for summer season this year but will make it up to you next year by showing up very early and offer you the must haves of the summer.....well any excuse to go back.

We are now entering Inuit territory in Iqaluit, Nunavut, in the Arctic circle. Weather is not too rough, -18°C, so we're not afraid to lose extremities, yet. Let's say we're lucky with the weather, it only snows in the morning.

Nature is fabulous. The sea is totally frozen and offers breathtaking sceneries. We needed to get here to actually realize how far North it is and how unbelievably lucky we are. 

We're off to work on our AMAZING Inuit coat project for this winter. Hopefully we'll be ready for your orders in September. A fabulous traditional local fur Inuit coat, made by Inuits, in Inuit land. You wanted Ethnic?.... We won't say more, you're gonna have to wait for September...

In Tokyo, Japan !!

First experience with Japanese design...

The rest of our local discovery was just as amazing and as much fun.

For your travelling information, everything in Japan is an Art, except breakfast. If you need a good kickstart in the AM, go to Gontran Cherrier's amazing bakery on Shibuya Square in Tokyo. We only found it on the last day, we wouldn't like that to happen to you.

And here we are in lovely Tel Aviv, Israel, in the midst of Purim's celebration, when everyone is disguised on the streets, when oriental music is played everywhere and when it is absolutely pourring with rain. It fell more water in 3 days than for the last 3 years. So there we are, stuck in a taxi in the middle of a waterfall, while its driver puts at top volume the last trend of the moment in the oriental music department while yelling in her mobile phone to cover the music, windows wide opened despite the rain, and wearing a red devil costume.......That reminded us of a sequence from the movie "Planes, trains and automobiles"... Travelling memories....

Tel Aviv is a lovely city when dry, and we met lot of very nice people there, ate a lot of schnitzels, and came back with one of a kind design so we can't wait to go back, with a raincoat.

In RIO ! ! !...and guess what: IT'S CARNAVAL !!!

That's what we call fabulous timing.... It's Caïpirinha this, Caïpirinha that, pass the sun cream and let's have another Caïpirinha. 

Between two stomach pumping we found the time to spot the most unbelievable design, street art and local handicraft you could ever dream of. A bus ride to Sao Paulo, trips to the far away jungle and back to Rio with a shopping list long like both arms. Take a look back on the website if you don't believe us.

The hell of a journey. We'll have to go back.
