Happy Sheep is conceived in Italy, where a creative team works on the project from the idea to the design. But it comes alive in Nepal, in a factory in the Kathmandu valley, where 30 local artisans give shape to our ideas.
The best cashmere yarn from Mongolia is sent here, where it gets colored and crafted following an ancient tradition, the same used to produce Kelim rugs.
These techniques mantain their uniqueness in the industrial production, granting a handcraft quality to the product.
Happy Sheep. Mad in Italy, made in Nepal.
Wouters & Hendrix is taking you on a mind blowing trip with their Summer’17 Collection, with a design based on the real experiences of someone who survived a spectacular trip through a black hole.
Wouters & Hendrix, who were always fascinated by quantum singularities and time travel, used a forgotten but incredible story as the inspiration for their latest Summer ’17 Collection, and called it; INTERSTELLAR LOVE. This is a wonderful & surprising collection, full of playful metamorphoses, visual contradictions, gravitational improbabilities, odd optical effects and surprising serendipity.
The images are based on the experiences of some kids who, completely by accident, went through a black hole. In the summer of 2011, a small group of Belgian students visited the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. At a certain moment they were left alone in the Interstellar Power Room. Nobody knows how they got in, but apparently one of the boys opened the hatch to the Boost Shuttle Tank and climbed in, and the others followed. Minutes later a Time Dilation Test was conducted when the group was still inside.
Before this accident, there was never ever anybody brave or foolish enough to test the limits of our own physics and experience a black hole from within. Everybody assumed that entering a black hole meant horrible death. The youngsters described it as the weirdest trip of their lives. They were very afraid and shocked at first, but it turned out to be the most wonderful, inexplicable experience they ever had.
One of the girls says it changed her life completely: “I was shrouded in fire, I watched my friend Sam from afar, speeding up in this mysterious bright yellow cloud. Minute by minute, my friends swelled in volume, blazing in a brilliant light, wildly roaring and making odd musical noises. I could see inside their head. I saw every spectrum of radiance and color. The others were like swirling storms, rivers, aflare with eerie lightnings. Vast tatters of their bodies flew off and exploded into flame, torrented back down and trown with red spindrift across the blue heavens, before vanishing into golden stardust clouds. It was as if the stars themselves spoke to me, their light rays bent, scattered and forever beautiful. It was brilliant!”
