So.. after long gatherings, sleepless nights and serious negotiations :) Cristina decided to have her own 'aiurea' place where the vintage atmosphere of a funky boutique will be rounded with lots of retro chic clothes including atypical shoes and patterned handbags having, of course, the Aiuristic by Cristina Ivan touch :) There will be also a few lamps signed by the same said brand, to be hanged here and there, all ready to be snapped up and delivered right in your cozy rooms!
Atelier Aiurea will be situated behind Manuc's Inn, in 19 Covaci Street and will be part of a new restored 19th century building of about 500 sqm, placed on the crossroads with the street of another old craftsman, Sepcari which connects I.C. Bratianu Boulevard with Franceza Street. Only that we are bound to wait until March 2010 when the restauration will be completed.
But until then, we will concentrate our creativity on a 20's movie scene window, preserving our energy on hunting vintage fairs in all of the Europe! We'll start with Rotterdam from where we'll buy also a caravan :)
That being said, hope you will stay tuned for news and details of the funky opening, where delicious bio sandwiches & already famous basil punch prepared by the one and only, Mr Julien de Rodos will sense you the path throughout the cozy room, publicly named Atelier Aiurea store! :)

Holidays are coming… ECO spirit comes to life…
Yes… holidays are coming, as a dear jingle once said, and since ECO is so cool these days, we thought Eco could also be the new Christmas decoration trend. EcoPeople magazine invited us, amongst other local artists, to put out some brand new ideas for Christmas. So they sent us a tree and we resent it back tuned in our shoe-ish style :) Curious what we came up with? Hmmm…well, shoes of course! We cut out some pictures of shoes from old glossy magazines and transformed them into tree decorations, used corks on strings as tinsels, damaged light bulb as the tree’s crown…and that’s about it. Simple enough? Well it is! and yes, you can do it at home, totally safe and eco. Your Christmas can be different this year…if you choose to recycle. The tree will be displayed soon in Eco people magazine and probably somewhere to be seen live. Information on location will be provided soon … so bear with us for a while and maybe we’ll meet there.
Don’t let the consumer era consume you, recycle… for an easy New Year!
