Cirque du Soleil: Amaluna

I recently had the chance to catch Cirque du Soleil’s latest touring show, “Amaluna” under the blue and gold striped big top next to San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Unlike the big Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil productions held in huge, glossy theaters, this traveling show embodied the casual atmosphere of a circus while providing a magical theatrical gathering. The scent of freshly-popped popcorn wafted through the air, and the theater was intimate, with stadium seating radiating outwards from a central stage. Best of all, due to the small scale, there really wasn’t a bad seat in the house.

Hollywood sparkled last night with glamour and glitz as celebrities came out for the 83rd annual Academy Awards. Our absolute favorite “Style Vixen” of the night was Gwyneth Paltrow, dressed in a sleek and shimmery Calvin Klein gown that evoked a hint of sci-fi glam and Cleopatra styling.

Feathers and Ice: the Nordic Fashion Biennale

I love the wicked-cool design of these posters, created for the Nordic Fashion Biennale. The first one was held last spring in Reykjavík, Iceland with a focus on west-Nordic fashion from Iceland, Greenland, and the Faeroe Islands, with over 60 participating designers, artists, and musicians from all over the world. I am a real sucker for Icelandic design sensibility, and I fell in love with many of the designs from the show straight away. Plus I love the unity of the graphic identity—from the website’s animated birds that swoop down to land on the mannequins, to the typography and stunning iconic posters—everything seemed to match the feel of the flowing garments perfectly, some of which loosely resembled the abstract forms of wings and feathers. Can’t wait to see what’s coming up for the next show!
