AV 2020 Zodiac Gift Guide

AV 2020 Zodiac Gift Guide - she - IG-1.jpg

This year is coming to an end…

No one will deny the fact that it was a real year of masks. I created sixteen mask designs with color variations that appeared in my e-shop. Looking at the masks, I decided to make a gift guide based on the signs of the horoscope.

Maybe this will be a great inspiration for gifts.

What is your zodiac sign?

Revealed

‘I want you to take some pictures of me this morning’, I said to my M and went to have a shower.

After a good half-hour, we both drowned in the abundance of camera shots. I do not know why, but over the years I look at the photos with a strange fear, but I guess it is common among women. I don’t feel how old I am and every time someone asks me, I have to take a moment and think.

The moment the first snow has fallen, here I was trying to taste the falling snowflakes.

And when the puddles got frozen, here I was trying to skate on them.

And then there was the idea that if you are still enjoying the snow and you want to skate on frozen puddles– you are really young and who cares about the number.

Of course, I always want to talk more about my creations and designs, rather than myself and my look. That’s why filming myself for me is so hard. I prefer to be an observer. Even my...

BURN THE NEGATIVE

- - - AGNE - change-flame-FiNAL.jpg

Do you know what could save the world?

CREATIVITY.

It seems like the current year took away our comfort (safety), money, traveling, but it can’t take away our creativity, the power of imagination, dreaming, attraction, action, discovery, creation, change, view.

Just like a question written in a forum I read - ‘What’s the thing you’re missing the most this year?’. I wrote ‘Travel’ with three crying emojis. It almost brought me to tears!

But can’t I travel for real?

Travel through books, films, travel channels, thoughts, dreams, own designs? Walking through the park covered in golden leaves – isn’t that a mini-trip? Looking for fabrics? Sketching? Cooking? So many things can be done throughout the day – even talking together and dreaming about Asia, deciding to cook an Asian dish that was seen on a travel cook show?

If we could only wake ourselves up in today’s chaos, and learn...

NOVEMBER FOCUS: GOOD VIBES ONLY

good vibes only_.jpeg

There is one troubling dilemma.

When I leave the house, I am not sure which mask to wear, haha … There are more than a dozen of them…

Favorite mask? Namaste Logo Games 2 (Black Reflective).

My hairstyle? Short Bob.

My perfume? Narciso Rodriguez for Her.

Eyes? L'oreal Bambi.

The overall image? Still SILVER.

Favorite garment? Pencil-shaped MQ knitted skirt with a zipper in the front all the way down, which I discovered in the Sukne boutique.

A dish that worked out perfectly at home? Chef’s Gordon Ramsay Roast Chicken in Kefir.

The dish I’m planning to cook? Bucatini alla Carbonara by Sophia Loren.

What do I do when I feel sad? Slightly shorten my Short Bob - somehow I like it when the hairdresser ‘does’ my head in every way.

The latest idea and product under development? Burn the NEGATIVE (coming soon).

What would I like to buy from clothes? Something from Uniqlo L +. I...

AGNE-CHAMP-AGNE 2021

1.JPG

Looking at the calendar I’ve noticed that New Year’s eve is not that far away.

Then I thought about champagne – will we pop a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Orange Label this year?

2020– brought so many challenges, but all of us know the saying, what doesn’t kill you – makes you stronger. We’ll live through it, I mean the rest of the upcoming months this year, but we’ll most definitely pop the champagne.
How else without it? ;)

Either way, the virus isn’t gone and the mask-making continues.

A new design mask has been made.

I was inspired by the fabric with champagne bottle print, sold by designer Courtney Hanks.

Once again I thought about champagne – maybe it would be nice to cover yourself in champagne bottles too?

After a good week I received the fabric in my mailbox, here I am, holding an already sewed mask, just one day later. It‘s missing something though. Something subtly...

LET ME SNOW

Agne - RED - snowflake - DSC02351-square-2.jpg

Are you waiting for the first snow to fall?

Someone has told me, that first snow is like first love. Sounds silly.

Does snow make us happier?

A bold YES. Written in white.

It stops us for a moment. Makes us look and appreciate. Excites us and makes us realize that the most beautiful holiday of the year is just around the corner.

It‘s still uncomfortable to talk about winter. After saying the word out loud I can feel shivers going down my back, especially after living in summerly colored Malaysia for some years.

But to be honest, I miss white snow. I miss layers of clothes, sweaters, hats, and huge warm scarfs. I miss footsteps pressed in snow. I miss mulled wine. I miss his naughty eyes and a toast “to you, to me and to whatever is about to happen tonight…‘‘.

I wish it to be warm and cozy.

How does it sound to you: to spruce up with snow? With snowflakes?
To melt in someone’s...

A GIRL WITH A PEARL MASK

AgneVei - Pearl Girl ART - POSTER.jpg

Around a couple of weeks ago, while browsing on social media platforms, a painting ‘A Girl with a Pearl Earring’ (1665) by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer caught my eye. Two thoughts popped into my head. The first was about the lack of a mask on her face (2020). The second was that she really resembles my niece Vaiva.

Enjoy the result.

WHEN WERE YOU ASKED OUT ON A DATE?

agnyte.jpeg

Today, I realized that the time has come to ask myself on a date.

Sitting in a sunlight-filled room I was thinking about a break in the city, even a short one with a cup of coffee, thoughtfully sipping, calmly looking at what‘s happening around, writing down my thoughts. Just that.

The bright sun made me go outside much sooner and before I knew it, I was already on the way to realize my morning thoughts.

There was no thoughtfulness in drinking my coffee, it took me three sips to finish it (I guess fast-paced routine got me). Looking around started to annoy me a little (especially how wrong masks can be worn!!!), but the music there was nice. When I opened my laptop, thoughts were kind of messy, so it seemed that I was deleting more than I wrote… I kept writing and deleting. Writing and deleting. Writing and deleting.

‘My date – was a fail…’, I curled my lip. I really was...

I’M SILVER DA BA DEE DA BA DAA

DSC01841.JPG

I always feel at ease after writing.

In fact, the words are flowing in my mind really often, every single day, but to focus and put it all on paper isn’t achievable all the time.

Today, as soon as I looked at the calendar I realized that the golden autumn is coming fast, at the speed of light… GOLDEN?!

But I’m wearing silver, retro Bimba Y Lola brand sneakers. Frekvens or to be more precise Ikea X Stokholm studio Teenage Engineering collaboration silver bag is hanging on my shoulder, silver cushions on my bed, and limited edition raincoat in my head, waiting for permission to be bought in preparation for the golden autumn. Silver pin GERĖJA on my t-shirt and silver Namaste Silver Angel mask is covering my face. Looking down at my macaroon nails, a thought flies by ‘this week I’ll paint them in silverrrrr’. I lean back on the sofa to rest my head from all the silver thoughts...
