This weekend marked Tel Aviv’s annual T-Market event, a fashion event that celebrates local young talents in design. Although the central idea behind this event started as a T-shirt market, it has expanded beyond and now features clothes, accessories, shoes, bags and even art, as well as cool live music and cheap booze.

The whole layout of the event had a very market place feel, which we loved. It made the atmosphere cool and laid back and allowed the designers to get really creative with their displays. Not to mention that the designs on display were sold at (almost) market prices. The sales were insane and we just couldn’t resist. The accessible prices and fun young atmosphere made this a kind of fashion event for the masses.

Here are some of our favorite designs:
Shani Jacobi‘s interesting geometric jewelry incorporates leather, gold and Swarovski crystals for a look that is sure to make a statement.

IMG_23271 IMG_23281Rony picked out Jacobi’s minimalistic gold rings.

T-Market sold amazing clutches in just about every color, size and texture.

IMG_23301 IMG_23311 Rony picked out an oversized wicker clutch.

Punchaos is a jewelry and accessories label with girly and retro designs. It is clear that designers Jessica and Yuval love to experiment with material and color and the results are beautiful.

IMG_23171 IMG_23161 IMG_23191We love seeing how designer Odelia gets better and better each time we see her designs. Her beautiful nature-inspired display caught our attention and we loved the designer’s new rings collection.

IMG_23481 IMG_23491 IMG_23511 IMG_23551 IMG_23521You may remember Odelia’s chic clutches from last year’s event. Rony scored Odelia’s delicate and beautiful gold heart bracelet.

Sackpack had a very chic adult version of that sack pack we used to have as kids, in various materials, textures and colors.

IMG_23611 IMG_23631

One of the coolest displays by far were by Dima Gorbachev, who had his super cool T-Shirts taped to the walls.

IMG_23591

Natalie Motlis, the designer behind jewelry label Lilla My, is one that never fails to make us feel a serious sugar rush because her designs are so sweet and creative.

IMG_23641You may remember the label from this post and this post. From the adorable creatures adorning her jewelry (bulldogs, kitties, fish, rocking horses and many more) to the unique pieces they are made of, to the gorgeous display, Lilla My is always a treat!

IMG_23651 IMG_23671 IMG_23691

Rony wore a houndstooth print crop top with high waisted long shorts, peep toe bow pumps, blue and orange clutch, colorful necklace from Madrid and hair tie.

This year was very meaningful for both of us, but especially for Vera, whose pregnancy was documented on the blog. It’s not easy to be a fashionista while pregnant but Vera never gave up her style.

Flowers have so much meaning in different cultures around the world. To us, they signify the coming of spring, of warm weather and picnics in nature and the feelings of excitement and expectation.

Flower motifs have always been in style, from the days of Marie Antoinette to today, they have remained relevant and feminine. Flower prints decorated our clothes when we were little girls and continue to, to this day.

Flowers usually have big presence at the spring collections, this year’s collections were no exception, and we have styled them for warm weather outfits here and here. This time, however, we decided to bring spring into our lives a little early and make the trend cold-weather appropriate too!

A Rose by any other name

Vera wore a sequined oversized asymmetrical cut top over a striped and polka dotted dress and hip hugging mini skirt. She wore flower and butterfly print pale tights, over the knee boots and a rose print scarf.

Vera’s sequined top and edgy boots gave her romantic pale tights more of a hip edge.

Rony wore a flower print asymmetrical cut skirt with an oversized sweater and a white button down shirt. She wore rose print tights, high heeled ankle boots and a green wool scarf.

IMG_13551 IMG_13561 IMG_13591 IMG_13631 IMG_13891

Rony’s forest green scarf is the perfect addition to this garden-themed outfit. Rony’s print mixing made the outfit interesting and cool; she kept it from getting too busy by putting the prints together with neutral colors.

IMG_13273 IMG_13291 IMG_13311 IMG_13382

Happy almost-weekend fellow fashionistas!

We chose this week’s picture because it really reminds us of fall. You can almost feel the cold wind blowing through the tree. Where we are fall is just starting to show face, so we’re getting very excited about our fall wardrobes. Next week we’ll be sharing our fall essentials and tips for fabulous fall styling!

This photo was taken at Edith Wolfson park, one of the most beautiful parks in Tel Aviv, where the architecture was designed by artist and architect Dani Karavan. We love this place so much we shot two posts here: Black Swans and Ladies in Trousers.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, enjoy the romantic weather!

If you’re a follower of our blog you may have noticed that we love street art. We find it very inspirational and meaningful, at times more than art displayed in museums.

IMG_89022

Mural by Dana Decktor.

From an urban perspective, street art is a way in which people can contribute to a cityscape and can express themselves anonymously (or not) for all of the world to see.

While sometimes graffiti can be perceived as sort of scribbles that do nothing but mar public space, it can have really beautiful graphic qualities: from typography to color and composition, street art is at times the freest form of art and expression out there.

IMG_90141

Nitzan Mintz mural – a study in Hebrew typography.

IMG_89102 IMG_90171 IMG_90181IMG_90162Signer Afk mural.

For all these reasons, we were thrilled to find out about The Seventh Floor, a street art exhibit held at Tel Aviv’s central bus station, where about a thousand square meters of walls are now covered with art by local artists and artists from abroad.

tot58kninsk5yje1sy5k

IMG_88973

Some of the art is colorful, some is aggressive and in-your-face and some has a very clear agenda.

Artist Natalie Mandel used the loose cables coming out of the walls along with old phone chargers to create a sort of vine spanning the ceiling, creating a juxtaposition between something from nature and an industrial polluted bus station.

IMG_89851 IMG_89911 IMG_89981

IMG_89971 IMG_62432An addition to this piece were huge grasshoppers built out of old scraps of metal.

IMG_89922 IMG_89941

“If only we can find the language of peace we could live together and forever as one” by Murielle Cohen.

IMG_89421

We loved the graphic qualities of this piece, made out of yarn, by artist Maya Gelfman.

IMG_62412 IMG_90101 IMG_90112

“Batman can’t save you.” Quite moving work by Zak Shiff.

IMG_88872

Beautiful Japanese culture-inspired art by Melbourne graffiti artist Haha.

IMG_90261

Stunning murals incorporating pasted newspaper and paint by illustrator Marian Boo.

IMG_89791 IMG_89712 IMG_89722 IMG_89702

An impressive abstract mural by illustrator and animator Dioz.

A piece by interactive artist Debi Oulu encouraging passersby to “do art”.

Urban decay by German graffiti artist Markus.

One of our favorites by Lavi>Safam Boards.

IMG_6100

The fact that this exhibit was held at the central bus station is meaningful in itself. Regretfully, this is an under-maintained, run down, awful building. The presence of the art almost makes up for the lack of design in the place, because at least the old and decrepit walls are being used for a good cause. The notion that public buildings that thousands of people pass through in a given day could be used as “rental space” for free art is a very exciting one!

IMG_89171 IMG_89482

IMG_89461 IMG_89592

IMG_89782 IMG_898011e8794ce1ac511e39c4c22000a9e0896_7

IMG_90531 IMG_90551 IMG_90561

What’s amazing though, is how people take this kind of art for granted and don’t even give it a second glance. We noticed that many people walked by completely oblivious, and only started to notice the writing on the walls (pun very much intended) when they saw us taking pictures.

IMG_89331

IMG_89162

Rony wore a Made by Lilamist graphic crop top with a vintage pleated midi skirt, peep toe heels, leather clutch, wood printed sunglasses and layered gold pendant necklaces.

We may not be professional photographers but we are pretty proud of our photography skills! Here we will share with you some of our favorite photos from our instagram page, many of which were taken on the locations of our fashion photoshoots!

Spatial Origami

Tel Aviv Museum of Art

Our pick of the week is a photo we took while visiting Tel Aviv’s Museum of Art’s new addition which was designed by American architect Preston Scott Cohen. Pictured is the intriguing interior space and play on light the architect created. We love how the concrete structure appears to be paper origami!

This museum was the location of our photoshoot for the post Shades of Gray.

Follow us on instagram for more!
Have a lovely weekend!
