Curvy shapes and bouclé fabrics. Graphic patterns and bright colours!  Also a huge confirmation of the direction with the style of the Cocoon collectables web shop, and the design of several current projects.

anouk hart

Anouk Hart maakte drie jaar geleden de sprong van mode-styling naar fotografie. In dat korte tijdsbestek heeft ze een eigen niche weten te creëren, werkend voor zowel commerciële als redactionele klanten. Als ze niet fotografeert in haar eigen studio in het hart van Amsterdam of op locatie, reist ze de wereld over. Anouk heeft recent een prachtige serie foto’s gemaakt met model Lieke en collectables van Cocoon House.

Cocoon Collectables @ Salon Heleen Hülsmann

Heleen Hülsmann is de elegante motor achter de gelijknamige Salon Heleen Hülsmann, een high end vintage winkel in Amsterdam-Zuid. Altijd al modegek, ontdekte ze een gat in de markt: waarom was er geen adres met zorgvuldig geselecteerde tweedehands designerkleding? Ze begon met een kledingrek op de Lairessestraat in Amsterdam en raakte al snel bekend. Inmiddels is ze een begrip en is ze verhuist naar de Willemsparkweg 166 in Amsterdam.

In haar salon momenteel twee vintage rotanstoelen uit de jaren 50 uit de collectie van Cocoon Collectables.
