The Good Fellows - The Name of These Girls Album Cover

(4 years ago)
The inspiration to 'dress the girls' came from the title of The Good Fellows new album, 'The Name of These Girls'  - The team started a jeans recycling campaign through social network groups and the response was successful. Through the process, the team worked directly with fans and friends of the group - resulting in unique packaging for each CD. Each sleeve is hand screened by members of the group. The process of choosing one is much like choosing a pair of jeans.         Related Posts:How To Give Half of Your Work Away for Free by Matthew ManosLola Cruz 

Elizabeth & James: Nirvana by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

(4 years ago)
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have launched a new fragrance, Nirvana under their fashion line Elizabeth and James. The signature fragrance for Elizabeth and James embodies the same sense of duality inherent to their partnership and the brand. The result was not one, but two blends-distinctly different, and undeniably connected.  "Inspired by a vintage keepsake from Ashley and Mary-Kate’s personal collection. The bottle's texture is a signature seen throughout Elizabeth and James fashion accessories. Soft, feminine curves balance the contrasting architectural lines. Black and white anchors the design, representing the ultimate duality of the color spectrum as well as the fragrances."         Related Posts:Tennents Whisky Oak Aged BeerAbsolut Karnival
