We heart Polaroids...ON SCARVES

I remember when I used to play with my mum's Polaroid camera in front of the mirror as a kid. Things haven't changed now that I am a bit older so instead of playing I am in hunt for the same camera around antique shops. What- If Rachel Zoe has it, I have to have it too.
Joking apart, when Polaroid manufacture announced no longer production back in 2008, the photographers didn't feel very well, nor designers too- fashion shows could barely function without polaroids. But thanks to The Impossible Project, new techniques, Urban Outfitters, Lady Gaga's partnership with corporation, finally we can have a sigh of relief. And to heal the sadness we were feeling, we need to celebrate with every single polaroid. So except I celebrate with Andy Warhol, who is my one of favorites related to fashion polaroids or Jeremy Kost, few months ago I fell in love with those that Antonio Barros snaps. I'm sure if you are reading misslikey long enough you noticed that obsession of mine on the header of blog. Sometimes I just like to imagine everything as polaroid image, even myself, so you can imagine the happiness I felt today I bumped on collection of polaroid scarves on Reborn shop pages. Yes, you did understand well- Printed polaroid images on pure silk, luxurious and soft scarves. You don't know what to do with them first- to hang them on the wall or wrap around your neck?! Collection entitled Objets Trouves is collaboration between Philippe Roucou, French designer, master in "savoir faire" leather goods, as he alleged in interview for Dazed Digital and contemporary artist M. Chèrie.
The price for this collaboration of creativity and chic is $CAD 449. Shop on Reborn, download the lookbook on Philippe Roucou web, and just say Wow!

Hey :)

Good write up as always. I LOVE the concept and idea behind this art, intriguing. When I was younger, I always found taking pictures as a UGH (just a teenage mind and way I suppose), but as I got older (still shy) I found creative ways to take pictures...so it wouldn't bore but inspire.

Have a groovy day :)
