She was born as Christa Päffgen in Cologne, grew up in West-Berlin. In the 50s she worked as a  model all over the world, with base in Paris. She also appeared in Federico Fellini’s ‘La Dolce Vita’ . In 1960 she gave birth to a child (Ari Boulogne, son of Alain Delon) and met Robert Zimmermann (probably better known as Bob Dylan). In the late 60s Nico moved to New York where she became an essential member of  the controversial Velvet underground band with roots in Andy Warhol’s famous ‘Factory’.

AN IT-GIRL FROM THE FACTORY

Posted in Fashion, Uncategorized by stylecouch on January 4, 2010

Edie Sedgwick who is best know as one of Andy Warhol’s famous muses from the 60s. She was hanging out in ‘the factory’ where she was also attending some of his short movies. Even though the movies never happened to be a commercial success, Edie became ‘the Girl of the Year’ in 1965 and she was definitely one of the most remarkable it-girls in the sixty’s New York. Unfortunately the days of fame were very tough and her drug dependency killed her at the eraly age of 28. However, she will remain an inspiring star and by watching the pictures I guess there is no wonder why – Your hair cannot be blond and short enough, your earrings cannot be big enough, you cannot wear stripes enough, your eyes cannot be smokey enough…She was gorgeous!

DRINK WATER WITH STYLE AND RESPONSIBILITY

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on October 27, 2009

I know I have mentioned earlier the rediculous consume of bottled water bu is it not ironic that in many parts of the world there is no clean drinking water for the population and in the parts where we have pure clean water we tend to drink water out of infected fashion plastic bottles??

“Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.” This Andy Warhol quoted was made in the 60s in a time were people did not realize which kind of problems plastic would cause in the future!

There are several reasons not to drink water out of plastic bottles. A controversial chemical used in many plastic products may remain in the body longer than previously thought. Bisphenol-a or BPA is widely used in the making of the hard, clear and nearly unbreakable plastic. Scientists say these toxins are causing obesity, infertility and even worse.

Moreover plastic should seriously be considered a new source of chemical pollution in the ocean. A vast swath of the Pacific, twice the size of Texas, is full of a plastic stew that is entering the food chain.

Earthlust has made a cool alternative to the plastic bootles. Their bottles are handmade stainless steel bottles with limited designs! In the site you will also find a lot of interesting links about our plastic fantastic world!
