From the coming Thursday, we will host a pop-up store together with Gant Rugger and Fuglen, at Fuglen Forretningen, in Oslo. Pop-up stores are a rare sight in Norway, and for us it is an honour to be able to arrange this with Gant Rugger and Christopher Bastin.
AFTER YEARS SPENT SCOURING THE US FOR VINTAGE ORIGINALS, SORTING THROUGH DUSTY SWATCHES, ANDS SEARCHING THROUGH OUR VAST FABRIC ARCHIVES WITH AN UNHEARD-OF ATTENTION TO DETAIL, THE NEW AND IMPROVED GANT RUGGER IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE TO RECLAIM THE FIELD WITH A COLLECTION UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE OUT THERE.
IT'S JUST RIGHT. IT'S SIMPLE. IT FEELS GOOD. EXACTLY WHAT GANT IS ALL ABOUT. WE'RE ONE OF VERY FEW BRANDS STILL STANDING WHO WERE RIGHT THERE AT THE BIRTH OF AMERICAN SPORTSWEAR DURING THE 1950'S, AND IT'S OUR HERITAGE THAT MAKES US WHO WE ARE TODAY. DRAWING ON SIX DECADES OF FANTASTIC DESIGN, GANT RUGGER IS THE REAL DEAL. WE WILL ALWAYS BE THE ORIGINATORS — IT WAS JUST A LITTLE MATTER OF REINVENTING AND REDEFINING AND WE'RE ON TO SOMETHING.
GANT RUGGER IS QUINTESSENTIAL AMERICAN SPORTSWEAR. THE DIAMOND "G" IS OUR ENDURING SYMBOL.
The Pop-up store will be open until Saturday, and will offer a selected range of Gant Rugger SS2011 collection, in addition to couple of limited edition collaborations between Gant Rugger, Fuglen and Blender Agency. Hot!

Directed by Stéphanie Di Giusto
With Lou Doillon et Valentine Fillol Cordier
Day for night captures a mysterious fugitive impression of vital strength which is deployed in the darkness of the night.
In the light of day, it becomes sensual and delicate. Valentine Fillol Cordier has a sort of power over nature. She makes the trees quiver and the wind rages.
She carries in her wake flowers and petals of the tree of life. Day breaks, Lou Doillon appears. Valentine goes through the night and encounters Lou who brings forth daylight. A hovering magical moment on the surface of water. Lou sings a haunting melody. Her voice rings out and brings peace to the storm in the night. With Lou and Valentine all the feminin ambiguities start moving. Catlike and delicate, embodied but secretive...
After this soft and sensual parenthesis, the race between the two women, between night and day, between Lou and Valentine, becomes a liberation. Lou sets off for the sun.
With Day for Night, womanhood goes with masculin coats wrapped around soft sensual dresses. Colors are like dawn and dusk...
Here Vanessa imposes the group "Efterklang" a bewitching folk music. Then the sensuality and emotion of Lou's song which she has composed. The movie sets off with " The books". Day for Night is an emotion. A movie like a poem. A collection that is strong and slightly erotic.
