Party Time

Are you ready for the biggest art and vodka party of the season?
The multicultural capital of the island, Nicosia, is going to host one of the greatest Artist ever. Andy Warhol. - at least spiritually.  

Who? What? I am talking ABSOLUTELY seriously. The revealing day of the new limited edition of ABSOLUT Vodka has come! (surely you already know what I am talking about, if not check previous post here). I am one of the few lucky people who got an invitation (jealous?) but the thing is, the host Andy Warhol was a little laconic and mysterious on its invitation. The only thing I know is that DJ Mighty Scoop is going to rock the decks and that white clothes are not the best choice.!! Vodka showers maybe???

Unfortunately because of the full-medical-student program, I cannot attend the event. But our own people will be there to have some fun and keep me&D updated for the details.

What is guaranteed is that flash, lights and cameras will POP from everywhere. 
Did I confuse you? Good. Keep that in mind and the mystery will be revealed really soon - I'll post pictures, PROMISE.

Sundays




In the middle of a month called October - refers in Autumn - is still warm enough for riverside walks. 
“Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week.” and golden sun rays  reflect in the waters of the city which looks at it's best. I guess I am in love with beautiful Cologne more and more every day.

I couldn't wait more to polish  my last years leather booties and match it with -again&again- leather classic pants. And because all these sound too edgy, a blazer in earthy palette avoided the rock-star look.  But still, I felt a bit like a rock-star and surely I got those moves. 

Sundays. People can take a breath and wait for what's next. 
I wish you a great rest of this SUNday and a great new week :)

Fridays



Welcoming Autumn and Winter has been a "rasch" -as we say abrupt- process. No need to tidy up the oversized sweaters, scarfs and boots. The airplane brought me from Summer to Winter-Land in just 4 hours. Awesome?
Before leaving CY weather was still hot, and as a Greek I enjoyed every sun-ray. Wearing my black sunnies. However, the colour palette is still dark - since forever.
The role of "Breaking the Black" had my favourite kimono (which by the way I wear with a belt for a cosier look) and my new (heavy) neckpiece from Zara. And don't forget the Falabela.

'till the next post!
love and peace

Take Andy Home




How would you feel If you could take your very own Warhol home or even better create your own Warhol? Well, we've got news for you! Now you can! This crazy Absolut project (see latest post here) continues to surprise us with its fresh, innovative ideas and unlimited creativity. Two concepts were created, one for the all the nightlife lovers(or more simply put: party-animals) out there, the "Warhol Spirit by Absolut". And one for the Art-lovers, the "Andy Warhol Art Excange by Absolut" which invites people to join this super party and to create their own art.


1986. This was the year, that marked Absolut, by collaborating for the first time with an artist - not ANY artist- and creating an original artwork. Andy has always been a Vodka-lover, or to be more precise, an "Absolut"-lover which inspired him into creating art for his favourite drink. Following Andy's steps, thousands of cutting edge artists, such as Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Louise Bourgeois, Annie Liebovitz -  and more recently Spike Jonze, Swedish House Mafia and Icona Pop, have since put their own unique and artistic touch in collaborating with the brand.


  Andy made way for Keith Haring to create the second ad for the brandRevisiting this collaboration with Warhol, Absolut believes in this collaboration as a manifest to creativity and art. Let's not forget that the original Absolut Warhol painting is being displayed in a museum.


What more can we say about this collaboration? Only, that it simply doesn't stop to amaze us and one thing is for sure. You should definitely expect  to hear more from us! In the meantime, let's just go get wasted on works of art!


Enjoy responsibly,

Warhol Spirit





As we've already mentioned in our latest post, a big event was coming up on October 1st in New York. And guess who's going to be keeping you informed on the topic for the next days! Yep - b**** you guessed it (skipping the song reference, moving on to our today's alcoholic topic!) 

As it has already been known, German artists Schnellebuntebilder, world renowned DJ and producer A-Trak, and Leif Elggren have joined forces to bring back to life in form of sound and visual effects the "spirit" of legendary Andy. The official premier screening took place at Stage 37 in Manhattan, NY, where the artists tried to interpret his voice. Using the "EVP Machine" (Electronic Voice Phenomena)  Swedish artist, Leif Ellgren gave us a taste of what would have been today, Warhol's voice.

A unique project about a truly unique artist. Take a look of all the clips on Warhol Spirit

Cheers,
