Closed till the 15th of February. We will come back with lots of Bobo news from a Bobo eco trip!
The new creation of Marianne Peltzer and Pierrot Dixsaut for the famous French brand Petit bateau.They are already Bobo Gallery´artists!
Short stop motion movie for "Le Bestiaire", an exhibition by Marianne Peltzer for Petit Bateau.
Marianne Peltzer created animals using the classic models of french manufacturer Petit Bateau for an exhibition full of imagination and childhood memories. Very funny and interesting, the exhibition allowed childs to join an "atelier" and create their own animal with a few pieces of fabrics.
Three stop motion movies were made to give more life to these animals.

Rockefella is a a new Swedish denin brand for children. Rockefella is about simple children´s garments that look the same as grown up clothes, but with the right functions for children.
For the jeans, ACNE must be careful, a competitor is in the place!

My 3 Bobo favourites :
1- A Kräfta Party in Versailles ´casttle
translation a Crayfish or Ecrevisse Party in Chateau de Versailles.( The Crayfish Party is very popular and very fun in Sweden during the summer)
(even if it is a lobster at the end...)
and more seriously The Jeff Koons exhibition until yhe 14th of December.
This US very talented artist also called the King of the kitsch creates the polemics in Versailles.The meeting between 2 cultures, we love it is so Bobo!!!
2- The Vintage Fair (2nd edition) the 27th and the 28th of September
Mode- furnitures- accessories from the 60´s. A special the Orange´s years for this edition.
Nathalie Crasset, one of the most famous French designer did the scenography and the place is the fashion temple of Pierre Cardin on the Champs Elysées.
3- The restaurant the cul de Poule (9th district)
First if I have to translate Cul de poule means the bottom of the chicken but it is also this pink cooking utensil !!!!
This new trendy restaurant with traditionel cooking is so good.
We love the grand mother rewieving recipes, the convivial place, the surprising graphism in the bathroom, the machine to cut the ham in the middle of the room.
The Bobo advice : don´t forget to ask for your free bracelet " et mon cul c´est du poulet" translation : "and my bottom is it chicken? " It is a old French expression !!
Cul de poule 53 rue des Martyrs 75009 PARIS
Graphism in the bathroom by Shobo Shobo www.grogore.free.fr
The BoBo Gallery will be closed until the 17th of September but will be open the 12th and the 13th of September between 12pm and 17pm
See you soon!!!
I have been told 3 very nice stories when I went to Formex yesterday.
My 3 "chouchoux" ou my 3 favourites and may be 3 futur Bobo creators you will find in the Gallery.
1-The norwegian sweater body by UGLY
Completly in the trend !!!
It started with three men* and a baby. A really small boy. And with him came the need for very small clothing. Even though approximately one half of the babies in the world are boys, it seems all the baby clothes are made for girls by girls. This is why Ugly™ Children’s Clothing was born some months after little Jesper. . The second Ugly™ Collection is a range of baby bodies for boys and girls with balls. Elegantly wrapped in our exclusive Ugly™ Body Bags™.
* André Jåtog, Aleksander Herresthal & Eivind Stoud Platou
Others text: my real dad is in prison- are you talking to me?.etc
2-Red Light Hk
It gives a very glowing light and I love their Installation. A futur classic!
Redlight HK is a plastic lampshade with a colourful history and designer aspirations.
Thomas Gardner MA RCA and Mikael Lundh BA (Hons) are taking a much beloved icon of Hong Kong streetmarkets to the stylish livingrooms of Europe.
"After over thirty years of hard work in the crowded side-streets of Hong Kong, shining on fishmongers and fruit-stalls alike, the charming little lamp 'that could' is now becoming available to buy in Europe. With its colourful history of oriental street-life and warm, inviting glow, we are sure that this iconic lampshade will find a home in many of livingroom, bedroom and all around the house. Just like its birthplace Hong Kong, the lamp reflects a joyful mix of oriental and western style, allowing it to complement even the most stylish surroundings.
3- The romantic graphism of Lisa Bengtsson
I love her new graphism for her plates and pillows.
Formex is taking place until the 31st of August in Stockholm.
From the 25th of July until the 14th of August the Bobo Gallery will be closed.
Have nice vacations!
Lots of news when I come back with in particular some Street Art with Piero of Urban Chaos...
Welcome to a new creator Beak Boots in the Bo-Bo Gallery and its fresh design sunny clogs!
The clog is a classic traditional footwear that has been made by hand for hundreds of years. In Sweden, the shoe is made with a sole of wood and leather hood. This unisex, ageless shoe gained huge popularity in 1970s fashion and was used by everyone - children, adults, men and women alike. It was not uncommon to paint something on the shoes, like a peace sign or a flower.
Beak Boots chose to produce their version "Clumsy", of this timeless footwear because of its many uses, as well as its vibrant history and tradition. The days of clogs are back and captured in two different takes on the classic shoe - one naturally tanned leather that will mature with the seasons, and one Sunny Yellow that really screams out summer. In either case, Beak Boots have done what they did with the Classic Beak Boot – refined a classic, timeless look a new, fresh design.
The Bobo Gallery organized its summer Vernissage last week end! It was a flourish, joyful and friendly Vernissage with lots of children everywhere, some French wine and a good mix between French and Swedish language. This was thanks to everyone who was there.
So thank you to Toni, the family, the French and Swedish friends, the creators, the clients, the camera....
A special thank to the parisian guests who have just come for the week end: the French Bobo paintor Marianne Peltzer and her new amazing paintings that you can discover below. And of course to Carola and Damien. Encore merci...
These new paintings are very special and unique. For the first time in her work, Marianne Peltzer uses swedish words...
Because for her each object always leaves a trace, an imprint. For the strangeness of their feeling or their shape, she paints these objects, takes their impression on silk paper, and tells their story with words and colors to give them a second life. You can discover more in the the bobo artists category in this blog or at the Bobo Gallery!

July is the vacation´s month in Sweden in spite of August as in France .
So enjoy your vacation!!!
Above, the limited edition print of "Hello Kitten" calendar of Kavel Rafferty (ref the Bobo Artists Category in this blog)
I became a fan of Mattin´s necklaces at the first sight more than one year ago.
As the so talented creator says:
Mattin is a young brand for every little one of us who wants to feel just a tiny bit more beautiful.
With a new-thinking design, Mattin is the right brand for you who wants to be like no one else or just like everybody else but with a slight difference.
The “chic and bling bling” brand Mattin is unisex, it really is unisex this time, for sure unisex, BOYS!
The Bobo advice : have yours in first!!!

Everyone knows this little duck or "canard de bain"
This little character has been declined a lot even in sex toy...
But now thanks to a very talented artist is becoming a piece of Art in the Land Art Movement.
One of the famous artist of the Land Art is the couple CHRISTO et Marie Jeanne and the wrapping of the Pont des Arts in Paris and their " ephemeral Installation" in the Central Park In New York .
As them, this artist Florentinjn Hofman who comes from The Netherlands, wants in his huge spectacular monochrome Installations to give a message of peace.
Look as his incredible work
About his rubber duck he said :A yellow spot on the horizon slowly approaches the coast. People have gatherd and watch in amazement as a giant yellow Rubber Duck approaches. The spectators are greeted by the duck, which slowly nods its head. The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn't discriminate people and doesn't have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!
Some of his other works
some of his works in progress
Ora Ïto was born in 1977 in Marseille. He begins his career at the end of 1990s by creating fake objects of famous brands. He designed ‘ads' for a Louis Vuitton bag and a camouflage-patterned carrying case for a Mac laptop and launched them on the Internet ... as if they really existed!
Pretty soon the big brands discovered his abuse of their name... and they loved it. This collection of imaginary items was viewed around the world and so emerged the very first virtual label. Fiction became reality when people tried to order his virtual products from his website.
In 2002, Ora-ïto is rewarded by the Oscar du Meilleur packaging in the Oscars of the Design for its aluminum bottle for beers Heineken. He is also the author of the internal design of the restaurant-club Cab of Paris as well as the visual identity of the television channel Pink TV.
He is creating real products for an impressive range of clients : L'Oréal, le magazine Vogue, Adidas, Kenzo, the groupe AIR, Honda, Guerlain, Swatch, Nike…
Now Ora Ïto and real estate entrepreneurs have teamed up with a new concept of luxury housing and resorts around the globe. The new brand is called LH&R-Luxury Houses & Resorts, a Paris based development-design joint venture. Advanced design will be delivered through the O-BY ORA-ITO brand. The O team will be the lifestylers of the new generation to meet people’s expectations for their living and working spaces. Leila Othman, O director and Partner said “People want a different lifestyle, a design that opens their space and that is environmental friendly. I believe that O is an answer to such expectations”. The developments are based on four design pillars through “the O collection”: Urban Loft, Natural Chic, Pop Fun and Neo Barocco. It is to followed…
We love his UFO - Unidentified Fire Object, designed for Climart Fire Design. It is an equitable ethanol burner. This object is very Bobo.
During shiny nights on your terrace, Fire illuminates your garden, takes part of your parties. Autumn-Winter, it is burning in the living room fireplace. It is the "Object Deco", unavoidable in conviviality places. .
A simple use, without any constrains... No pipes, no smoke, the Climart Fire burn with vegetal cartridges. Climart rethinks Fire !
Buy it to a good price to www.Design-d-sign.com
Said that you want to register and I will sponsor you. Send me your email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Ora Ïta follows every trends, he is everywhere and therefore to the Festival de Cannes with is girl friend Vahina Giocante.

I am surprising myself to write about the Eurovision song contest 2008 but new things happen this year.
First, in my new country, Sweden, I don´t again understand why but here the Eurovision is a huge event in the country. More than half of the population (around 4.5 millions) followed the selections for the Eurovision!
In my case, I don´t have any memory to have watched one time the Eurovision. In France, the young people are not so interested by it (and of course I am very young!!!!).
May be it is a coincidence because I am living now in Sweden but something is sure this year I will follow the final not with my French flag (it is not Bobo) but with my tee-shirt I love SEB.
Yes because I ADOOORE Sébastien Tellier, the singer will represent France for the Eurovision. He is so Bobo!
For the first time in France, there is a pop electro music in this competition and which one!!!
With his song “Divine” Sébastien Tellier represent the new French musical trends. His last album called Sensuality is co-produced with a member of Daft Punk..
With his kitsch and “décalé”(= you have to take it at the 2nd or 3rd dedree) style, Sébastien will represent perfectly the French touch !!!Even if we don´t win,
And I am sure that for once in France the young people will follow the competition!
Allez Seb !!! He is so Bobo!
Enjoy the official clip of Divine
I love also the song "Roche"
This summer, the liberty textil is everywhere in the fashion : blouses, dresses, sneakers, underwears, decoration,.... and in the Bobo Gallery of course!

Hi everybody !
I am back with lots of Bobo news from Marrakech and Paris and lots of novelties for The Bobo Gallery.
In my last post I asked you where is the place on the picture. It was la Plage rouge (the red Beach) in Marrakech!!! Some place are so incredible that you really don´t miss the sea...
But now I have been there I have to present to you the most Bobo place in Marrakech.
Definitively it is the Murano Oriental resort in "la Palmeraie " in Marrakech. All was incredible. The welcoming (a special thanks to Julie), the decoration, the light, the food, the garden, the red swimming pool...It was just AMAZING!
The Bobo advice: Don´t miss the brunch on Saturdays and Sundays , the buffet is excellent.
I am sure you will enjoy the moment as I did with some best friends for the Jé´s Birthday. It is unforgettable, Je vous aime!
There is also a Murano in Paris and it ís a nice bobo place to have a drink.
From the 23rd of April to the 6th of May the Bobo Gallery will be closed.
Sorry for that but don´t worry lots of surprises will be planned for May...
Have you got any suggestion about where is this BoBo place ??
When I come back I will tell you...
It is a new trend of knitters getting together and knitting things around public property. The groupe in Stockholm is called Masquerade . There is also a famous guerilla knitting crew in Texas www.knittaplease.com
A tag crew of knitters, bombing the inner city with vibrant, stitched works of art, wrapped around everything from public monuments, utility poles and all what they feel. So the Masquerade´girls, if you come to Svartmangatan 10, exprime yourself you are more than welcome!
The Bobo advice : During the week-end, enjoy yourself following their mapp and see Stockholm in a different way!!!

I love the one for the shoe lovers from the swedish designer Lisa Bengtsson http://www.lisabengtsson.se/. The others are from several artists for Marimekko. http://www.marimekko.com/eng/interior/fabric/etusivu
The Bobo advice : put for exemple the shoes wallpapers inside of your wardrobe or your dressing room so chic! ...and in general to consommate but with moderation!
I like also the wallpaper with books in the shelves from the new Pontus restaurang in Stockholm.
Smallstep designs children clothes with simple, clean linens to create a contemporary style.
All Smallstep garments are designed and manufactured in Stockholm. They come in a range of neutral colours, so they are easy to mix and match with your child’s wardrobe and accessories to create an individual look AND an individual look it is so Bobo!!!
Naturelly, we are the "dutch style" bike and not the sportive style one at all.
For the Bobo style : customise your bike or your basket this is even better(painting, decalls, flowers, bands...)be creative! and stay chic in your outfit!
