Scoot over!

Being a fan of Stokke even before I got pregnant, I couldn’t be happier for what strolled at my doorstep.
The new Stokke® Scoot stroller with its smart engineering is ideal both for excursions and the busy, unfriendly streets of Athens where you actually need superpowers to manoeuvre a stroller with a baby in it.
Nevertheless, what I love most about it is the compact folding (in contrast to strollers where you have to detach the seat every time you want to fold it and store it or put it in the trunk of your car) and the height of the seat that allows you to double, triple and quadruple check on your child or give him a smile.
On top of that, you can style your pram with the new limited edition style kits!
Inspired by the traditional colours of vintage European race cars, the colours are referencing the spirit of classic racing heritage. The kit includes a hood with visor, a sporty padded seat inlay and a shopping bag for the parent.
I opted for racing blue.

Marni at Salone del Mobile 2012

Marni presents, during Salone del Mobile 2012, a collection of 100 chairs which have been made in Colombia by ex-prisoners, aiming to reinforce their resettlement into social and working life.  All chairs consist of metal structure and multi-colored PVC threads.

The chairs are linked to the “L’Arte del Ritratto” project through a photo exhibition, created in collaboration with the photographer and filmmaker Francesco Iodice, who will use the chairs as background for a series of portraits of Marni teams from different departments. “L’Arte del Ritratto” is an homage dedicated to them, destined to last in time, which is also accompanied by a video that reports the shooting experience.

The collection of 100 chairs, the photo exhibition and the video will be presented at the Marni boutique and all photos will be published on ANTICAMERA2, Marni’s online magazine on during the Salone del Mobile 2012. The amount raised from the sale of the chairs will be entirely donated.
