Illustrations by Rafaele Rohn

We are in love with the work of talented designer Rafaele Rohn.  Last autumn we started a collaboration with her studio and created the Marble & Gold cardholders and the Marble & Gold necklace together.

Now she came up with new minimalist floral illustrations. We will sell them through our online shop soon.

Hidden Treasures

Rotterdam is a city which has a raw industrial look.

On the second view  it reveals his  special charm by spreading hidden structures and poetic places all over the city. I made a selection of things around our studio which inspired me.

1 //  The Luchtsingel bridge  above our studio: the fallen leaves in autumn  created this dreamy  melancholic atmosphere contrasting with the bright industrial yellow and the rough architecture.

2 //  The Schieblok , home of our studio

3 // The building across the road is not such a beauty from the front side. But when walking over the Luchtsingel the side facade of the building reveals a beautiful pattern structure.

4//  Walking from the station towards the Schieblok is not such a spectacular tour. But one day I looked up and saw this beautiful house structure on top of the building, combined by a amazing cloudy sky.

5//  Burgertrut, a great Burger place in Rotterdam, combines old granny lamps and furniture with a industrial setting and again bright yellow.

Lilesadi loves… Playtime Paris 2015 Picks

We had such a great time presenting our year collection LileSADi petite 2015 at Playtime Paris 31st of January until 2nd of February this year. We found many new retailers and we met many many inspiring people, for example the talented people from Papu, a fresh brand from Finland.  We wanted to share with you the brands to watch. Of course we cannot show you the AW2015/16 collections yet, what you see here is from their current collections.

In love with Papu – The people behind this Finnish brand are so nice and inspiring. Papu is a collaboration between an artist and a designer. They share our opinion about cross-seasonal clothing and everything is produced in the EU on organic fabrics.

Lilesadi shares… one sunny day

Last Wednesday was extraordinary sunny and we want to share our day with you all.

We had a meeting with Siebring and Zoetmulder in the morning to discuss our collaboration project for the Salone in Milan, but we couldn’t resist it and asked them to come outside. Then, in the middle of the meeting, we found out that the rooftop café at Schieblock was already opened… So we run all the way up to the last floor of the building and… oh wow! The views and the sun were just incredible. Every wednesday the collective prepares a really nice lunch with the vegetables from the rooftop garden.

After some intense working hours at the studio, we were ready for our Lilesadi team dinner at Dinah’s house. Since Playtime, we were already waiting for a nice evening together and the time had arrived. We just had one bike so we crossed all Rotterdam by foot. I must admit that even it was pretty tiring, it really worth it, as we got to appreciate the sunset at the Erasmus bridge and the night lights at the harbour.

Finally, once at home, Dinah and Sarah cooked a truly delicious Lasagna and I made a fresh salad. Marjaana and Yelle brought some nice wine and we enjoyed a very nice dinner altogether.

 

I hope you can all get the good vibes from our day,

and please forgive me for the weird video format, I understood after recording it that you should keep your phone horizontal…
