Artuyt: When Fashion Meets Art

A fun, colorful scarf is undoubtedly one of the most important accessories in everyone’s wardrobe. It’s a great way to dress up a simple outfit and give an extra touch to any style. Sometimes, however, scarves are not only a beautiful fashion attribute. When combined with art, a simple scarf transforms into a special way of communication with the world. Feelings, culture, values and even history can be traced in prints and colors of the scarves.

Last week in Yerevan (Armenia) I had a very interesting talk with the founder of “Artuyt”, Arevik Arakelyan. Founded in 2016, “Artuyt” aims to promote the exquisite artworks of Armenian contemporary artists within the country and beyond. Colorful scarves produced by “Artuyt” are the exact replicas of their artworks. Each scarf is a unique masterpiece that guides the wearer into a magical world of Armenian art.

UZURII SPRING-SUMMER 2017

Even though the winter has not yet given it’s credentials to spring, the new spring-summer collections are actively  hitting the stores.
Today we are going to discuss the new 2017 collection of one of the definite must haves of the summer – UZURII flip-flops. Next to the big variety of colors, the brand also offers new models this season.

I think many of you will agree that yearly collaboration of H&M with designer brands are one of the most awaited fashion events of the year. As we know these limited edition collections are normally sold out within hours.

Last year when Balmain collection hit the stores,  I entered H&M 15 minutes after its opening (because of a big line) and everything was already sold out!
This year I have decided to stay home and try to purchase it online. This “strategy” was more successful 🙂
