I have found this nice video about the making of a Louis Vuitton. This nice video shows how a louis vuitton shoe is handcrafted produced. You get a great impression of the love and powercraft how such a shoe is made. I am particularly impressed by the materials and hand tools used.

On Saturday morning Yuki, Bekiko and I went to the Stijl in Mainz and it was bitter cold. Even in the morning hundred of peoples stand in front of the old post camp to be one of the first and to get hold of the best pieces. The best things are off early and other booths have special offers and reduced items to the fair, which are sold out quickly.
But the Stijl offers more than just discounted fashion. Even more it is a platform for trends and styles of young designers. In recent years, the Stijl seems to grow and is fun for young and old. I noticed that also the older generation takes place at the event. Maybe this duw to the jewelry designer or artists, who sell accessories that make up a large part in the hall.
Who is looking for a fancy T-shirt, a nice piece of jewelry or a little gimmick to give away is at the right place: the Stijl. Although the Stijl itself sees as the center for fashion, sports and design in the Rhein-Main area, for high fashion you are looking without avail. A visit is definitely value.
Here are some impressions of the fair, which has open their doors the whole weekend .
Last night arte showed a 55-minute documentary about Paul Smith. Paul Smith, who has noticed the time of pop art and Bauhaus, show us how he works with his team and which various things gave him inspiration. He uses old books from the 18th century, fairs and street markets in London to find ideas and turn them into exciting new collections. His fashion moves between classic and Brit-style acts, but always something subtle. On 5 December is the repetition and the online channel shows the documentary for the next 7 days.
