KJAER WEIS is a visionary and forward-thinking cosmetics brand created by Danish-born, New York based make-up artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis, that recognizes health and beauty equally by fulfilling the desire and demand for color cosmetics made with the highest quality safe, natural and organic ingredients without compromising on luxury or contemporary design.
The brand fills the gap in the market for a product with clean formulations inside and design packaging on the outside. Branding, structural and packaging design are created by Marc Atlan.
KJAER WEIS is Certified Organic by the CCPB, the Italian organic certifying authority. The ingredients used are of the highest quality. When working with organics raw materials, one works with a live, non modified material, it’s like eating an apple fresh off a tree compared to a processed cookie. Every batch of make-up has to be adjusted to keep the same color and texture, this is the closest one will get to a hand made piece. »I believe women deserve the feeling of putting the best ingredients on their skin that the body actually celebrated and resonates with, not something it’s trying to fight«. All products contain no paragons, petrochemical emulsifiers, synthetic colors and fragrances. KJAER WEIS is 95% organic!
Red lacquered grain-textured boxes that look like little jewelry cases house the bold metal compacts with their white enameled KW logo. All the KJAER WEIS compacts are refillable. »I wanted something unique, modern, forward thinking but also socially responsible.« Each compact comes with your chosen color. Refill pans are available in customized, simple paper cartons, that are fully recyclable yet beautiful, so care has been taken to maintain sustainability principles as well as high design standards.
»The visual and aesthetic parts of daily life are vitally important to me. Consciously or unconsciously, design affects us all.« Kirsten Kjaer Weis
The 95% organic make-up line runs three different products:
Lip Tint, Creme Blush & Eye Shadow.

The latest label to join Weekday’s popular line Weekday Collaborations is Stockholm based The Local Firm. The brand has a distinctive design code which combines high fashion attire with innovative jeans design and for Weekday TLF creates a collection distinguished by its delicate use of grey tones. The new collection for both men and women will be in all Weekday stores by May 29th 2010.
For this collaboration we designed a sports collection inspired by the 80s tracksuit while also reminiscing Olympic teams of the former East Block. The range of grey tones throughout the line and the team spirit of ›strength in numbers‹ is typical of The Local Firm’s design philosophy«, says Richard Hutchinson, one of the founders of TLF.
The Local Firm’s collection for Weekday contains a sharp-looking mix of sporty garments and accessories. The tracksuits and light weight jersey are combined with accessories such as a whistle necklace, a nylon sports cap and nylon bags.
The pieces here that you are looking at is inspiring for me as a fiend for fashion. I wish there were more designers out there for men that would make pieces that would take a whole outfit to another level. Just as one of Sandra Backlunds pieces would do for a ladies ensemble.

Within the latest creation of edgy garments and precious pieces, Aroma 30 develops a delicate yet strong collection of sculpted silhouettes. Inspiration is taken from the contrast between geometric and soft shapes in nature and translated into a balance of architectural construction and spontaneous complexity. Featuring intricate sections of pleated and draped fabric, geometric cuts and monochromatic layers of ribbons, the items explore a cold, wintery palette of nude, beige, black and cloudy grey shades.
A timeless vision of style rises from luscious silk drapings and soft wool foldings, drawing a unique effect of natural lights and shadows while creating volumes and shapes around the body. Aroma 30 follows a theme of grace and conscious felinity developing a collection where simplicity and complexity express different meaning of the same message. Check out more cool stuff at AROMA 30
