Origami Cranes

#3 of the cranes we made

The crane is a holy and mystical creature in Japan. An ancient japanese legend says, that whoever folds a thousand cranes, can make a wish. The origami crane is a symbol of good luck. 

We made these 50 colourful cranes for a client.

GQ Germany - Mundpropaganda

GQ Germany started a campaign against homophobia called Mundpropaganda - Gentlemen gegen Homophobie (engl. word of mouth - gentlemen against homophobia), in which they got 13 heterosexual famous german artists to kiss each other for photographs. 
In our oppinion, every person should be allowed to live and love as they wish and who they wish, as long as they do not harm anyone by it.
This is a step in the right direction, towards more acceptance and tolerance in the world.

Chanel 'Paris - Dallas' 2013/14 M├ętiers d'Art Fashion Show

The new collection has been presented the 10th december 2013 at Dallas Fair Park, with Kristen Stewart as the face of Chanels Paris - Dallas collection.


As Scotland last year, Dallas was chosen because it also has a connection to the life of Gabrielle Chanel. In the 1950ies, the American have supported her a lot, and she even visited Dallas in 1957.


The collection is full of classic chanel elements, made suitable for Cowboy- and Squaw-like looks. You can feel the Western-Dallas vibe and historical american influence.
The collection is perfect for the bohemian-chic that is very popular these days.

Forever Marilyn & N°5

As every year, the legendary Chanel N°5 got a new commercial.
To be honest, we are happy that we got away from Brad Pitt, and back to the iconic Marilyn Monroe, because no one can represent the perfume Chanel N°5 better, than a woman, who does not wear anything else but it to bed.


...what do you wear to bed?...
...so I said Chanel N° 5, cause its the truth, and yet I don't want to say nude, but it's the truth...

Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela


"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart that its opposite."

Nelson Mandela passed away the 5th december 2013, at the age of 95.
In spite of all the hate he suffered, he certainly brought a lot of love to humanity, and his traces of love and peace will remain on earth for ever.
He was a great personality, who never got tired to fight for what he believed in and bear the consequences with an incomparable strength and power of endurance.
You will never be forgotten!

Lana del Rey - Tropico

Finally it's out! We have been waiting for so long, and today at last Lana del Rey's short film "Tropico" starring (amongst others) Shaun Ross and herself as the main character was released!


Lana del Rey was attending the official premiere at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. At the same time she announced her upcoming album Ultraviolence, that will be released in 2014.
Of course we would have loved to be there personally too, we have already been lucky enough to meet her twice, and she is a wonderful person.
The short film exceeded our expectations, and we absolutely love the Lana del Rey-typical-vintagey way it is shot, from the garden of eden in the beginning, with Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, to strippers, to guns, there is nothing missing, and you accompany the two main characters through what seems to be three different lifes.
The movie is accompanied by the songs body electric, gods and monsters, and Bel Air, they were chosen perfectly for the film and the different scenarios.
Finally, you still have a happy end, with the couple cleansed of their sins, dressed in innocent white, dancing in the bright sunlight and finally, together, ascending to heaven.

Kate Moss for Playboy's 60th anniversary

For the Playboy magazine's 60th birthday, Kate Moss appears in the January / February 2014 double issue of the magazine.
Kate Moss features in 18 pages and the cover of the magazine, shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot.
Not only is it for the Playboy's birthday, but it's also a celebration for her turning 40 in january, and once again she shows that it's not a matter of age to be hot and beautiful.
We think she's perfect for the anniversary issue, as she herself is a sexsymbol and a timeless icon.
We are looking forward to get the magazine and see the whole editorial.
