Focus: Tiny Trades, Fun & Original Pics

Once upon a time there was a photographer. But he was no ordinary photographer...

If you've been following Malam for a long time, then you already noticed, for sure,  that all our beautiful pics are gently taken by some guy named YANN :)

Malam is happy to introduce you to

Brilliant, full of talent and ideas all as original and creatives as each other,  we instantly thought that his own particular style was just PERFECT for Malam. 
Art photos of tiny trades, pumpkins, etc. with a charming little guy wearing a tailcoat and a top hat on a pale pink background. See what I am talking about?

Oww you like it? 
Hell no, you mean you love it??! 
So do we!! ;)

Guess what, our dear professional photographer just opened his own e-shop... to keep on making us dream forever & ever. And so that we can wander more easily in his lovely MAGICAL world <3 br="br">

Because at Malam, we're so fond of ONE OF A KIND creations made with love, that makes you dream with just one glance ;)



More?? :D

 









STILL ASKING FOR MORE??!!

New collection ... A video in the make

Well, I should have written this article last week but... I really didn't have time... OK let's not make up excuses.

SO last weekend, I went with my mini dream team (a photographer,  a film director,  2 beautiful models, a wonderful make-up artist, my assistant and I of course ;)) to a magical and SPLEN-DID castle, 3 hours away from Paris... for the long-awaited filming of the video of the new Malam designs. No less!

AND as at Malam we love (hand) making things, but most of all we love them well-done... the video is still in work-in-process. "Owww but we're dyyying from waiting!!!" you'd say (or not) but DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY. Here is a little thing for you ;)

Some pics from the video almost in preview (yes, you might have already seen them on FB). But, anyway, just for the fun of it ;)

Fashion find: the Victoria winged Jacket

Already September! Autumn is coming really soon. So bye bye summer clothes (*sigh*) and let's say 'welcome back' to your favorite jackets. 


Problem #1: you don't have any favorite jacket in your wardrobe (which is in a total mess after coming back from your holidays...)

Problem #2: you absolutely CAN'T wear something that you already wore last year, the year before, and the year before... !!

mhmmm *mumble* what to do??!!

SO, you definitely have to go shopping to start afresh with this "new year" of HARD work coming (and let your girl friends &; co-workers be jealous, it's worth it, hehe...)

And MALAM has the perfect solution for you ;)

Remember last year? We made a special short and original jacket for the MALAM fashion show during the Fashion Week in London.

 


Yes, that's it, this very pretty Victoria cropped jacket!

You liked it SO much... so that Malam decided to make a few more in different fabrics, for this fall-winter collection!!

Black? Blue? Red? Velvet? Light fabric? Vintage? New fabrics, new prints, embroideries...

No Problem AT ALL. Malam made the perfect combinations just for you. Here you go! :D




    Rendez-vous at Malam's boutique for more lovely and unique designs, more original jackets, and CUSTOM MADE ones  ;)

New season and a new dress for the website

                                                                              



It was about time to make some changes at Malam...
We were thinking about it, and FINALLY did it! If you now go to Malam.fr you'll be happy to discover a whole NEW world. A world a bit more adapted to the boutique's appearance. 
I swear, it's true!!





FIRST: we changed the homepage. Cute isn't it?
SECOND: we changed the banner, to make it look a bit more like the boutique's...



AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST: we changed every remaining things - both appearances & contents! 

The buttons, the wedding page, the gallery page, Malam ('about us')'s page, and we added a News page, in order for you to see, more easily, what's new (videos...) at Malam!! 

A unique webpage for unique creations: hooded coats, custom made wedding dresses, patchwork cowls, original accessories, designer tops, vintage, jersey, lace, silk, ... in short, everything HANDMADE ;)



What do you think about the new site?

Patchwork bags in all colors !



It is so classy to have such an amazing, one of a kind, bag...
Sometimes, it's indeed so frustrating to meet with people with the exact same shoulder bag as you have!
Well, of course you can own a it bag but you can only accept to have the same shape and model but absolutely NOT the same fabric and colors! We understand that a bag can be a big hit but having the same one as your friends is unacceptable!


At Malam's, the bag is a Bubble bag but made in Malam, each piece is unique and totally handmade.
This bag is classy, in whatever color or print, slung over the body or simply carried on your shoulder. Irresistible!


For more classical tastes, you will choose light colors or more neutral ones, such as beige or black. But there has to be a perfect one for each of you, so here's more of them !

Personally, I slung it over my shoulder and go on a spree. So chic!
And Malam didn't forget about you guys with these satchels made in repurposed postal fabrics..

Enchanted clothing - Snow White

'Someday my prince will come...'

We all know so well that this blah blah is only some fairy tale sweet-talk that does not exist in real life. But at the same time we would love to be a princess. And this year, to be a movie princess, you only have to be Snow White!

© Universal Pictures International France

Whether in a movie or elsewhere, Snow White is far from being a has-been princess, who only knows how to eat a rotten apple and lie in bed waiting for Prince Charming... An enchanting world, indeed, but Snow White in 2012 is a total warrior. Or more like a lovely young lady wearing haute couture dresses. In Rupert Sanders' movie, she is wearing leggings and a dark armor... dark and effective just like the character.

Her mean witchy stepmother wears a really gorgeous cape, maleficient and splendid as the same time (a nice little princess should be able to wear it for a cocktail or other reception)!
As for the mean stepmummy's wardrobe, whether in this movie or in another one, it is glamorous, well-stocked and really sumptuous: I was like 'OMG, so jealous!!'
Fashion and nice costumes are not strictly reserved to nice young ladies, yeaaay! Concluding from this, however, that you have to become mean to be able to wear Queen gowns...!

The queen of movie costumes, Colleen Atwood, has made a really exceptional and fairy-like work: indeed her costumes's purpose is to dress up the characters of the movie, but that's not the only thing as you get to understand the story only by looking at her clothes. The cuts, the fabrics and colors play a big part in the movie. And it is no surprise if the lady has already won multiple Oscars: in 'Chicago' (Rob Marsahall, 2003), 'Memoirs of a geisha' (2005), and for Tim Burton's re-adaptation of Lewis Carroll's book, Alice in Wonderland (2010).

Let's dream... we are really looking forward to Hollywood's call for Malam princess dresses ;-)

Mint green addiction - Summer fashion

A gentle summer breeze is around the air... I happen to be kind of Mint Green obssessed these days. This is  no joke,everywhere I go, all I see is mint green. This beautiful color seems to be THE color of this summer and looks gorgeous with and in every outfit...

Especially, I want (need ! ) this bag :


Sabrina Paris bag
 And I couldn't resist making this mint green little bolero... Tadaaaaaam!




I do think this is both related to my sea addiction (and to all lovely things actually) and to my 'half-tones' colors addiction, and I am not gonna escape this one as I already am into mint.


See?

High-waisted - Focus on skirts

 

Whether the temperatures are high or low, skirts must be worn in Girlsland, well maybe not everyday but you definitely have to show your beautiful legs! Here we are in love with skirts and even more fond of playing with them... You can find treasures such as Malam's wrapped skirt, in limited edition, and inimitable cuts... we all know them well, we like and totally love them!
And now you can also find the high-waisted skirt collection...


 You really become addicted to it instantly. I insist as having a Malam high-waisted skirt is just magic: whether it's day or night, on high or flat heels, at winter or summer time... A high-waisted skirt with uspenders is the new MUST HAVE of your wardrobe!


You choose. But don't hesitate to ask Marie that will help you choose an original high-waisted skirt with a smile. Your perfect choice made to measurements... Good shopping! ;)

Summer and Party Strapless dresses

Strapless dresses, my top pick for the day !
It is indeed a must have… how can you live without one?? That's definitely impossible.


Because :
*its cut is to die for, a perfect fit, a real (yeah, you can find false ones...) strapless dress that makes you even more pretty and shape your body.
*some pieces, such as this one, are exceptional : a very trendy print but that no one has in his closet and this... is magic, such a wonderful feeling.
Trendy but different!
* this very print is full of memorey. And I dare say that this is a print of the collective memory but not "has been".

Let's just say that this is every woman's dream: pretty styling, perfect fit, not looking like everyone else and having your own style… so next year and the year after, you will wear your dress again, which will always be as pretty as today and always as exceptional (just like you)!!



And you can also find in the shop other strapless bustier dresses with other prints and colors... Pure happiness, let me tell you ;-)
