Magi 2018, the last whim

Do you prefer the Three Magic Kings or Santa Claus?

Many are the countries in the world that celebrate with more enthusiasm the Day of the Magic Kings rather than Santa Claus. In the most of the European countries, and many in the south American continent, the 6th of January is full of special moments and presents.

Also for adults

It is about a day to spend with the family, where the main protagonists are the children, who, excited, received a bunch of presents. Whereas, adults and older do also participate during this day, it is also a special day for them. They take advantage and wish all these most wanted desires that have been looking for during the previous year.

Do you remember the origin?

This celebration has its Christian origin and goes back to the birth of Jesus, when he received the visit of three wise men who offered him as a gift gold, incense and myrrh. These have become known popularly as the Three Kings. It is celebrated annually on the morning of January 6, since it is said that these kings during the early morning deposit the gifts in the houses.

What we all hope is to see the next morning, is if the Magic Kings hit. There is no perfect gift, since many people prefer intangible gifts such as a trip or risky experiences. There are also other people who valye and appreciate the fact of a physical gift, to be able to touch it, see it and enjoy it continuously means a constant enjoyment.

We talk about gifts that are considered specials, something as exclusive as a work of art, the handbag of your dreams, in short, those gifts that are for life, and that you are sure will pass from generation to generation.

The ONESIXONE bags are a special gift. No one in the world will have the same ONESIXONE, since its exclusive character, with limited editions to 161 units makes this something unique and personal. The intervention of an artist in its design and constitution make it an accessory as well as original, timeless, being an authentic piece of collector, as if it were a work of art. And also, what it supposes that has been made by hand by craftsmen specialized in the skin for hundreds of years, in Ubrique.

We know that there is no perfect gift, but we try to make it perfect for you.

Know the curiosities of New Year around the world

The last day of the year is a date to toast for the good things that have happened during this year, and to let go and these things we do not want to remember any more. Each country has its own traditions and its original way to dismiss the year, each one more original and interesting.

New Year’s Eve in the USA.

One of the most famous places and that is always related to New Year’s Eve is NEW YORK. Although New York is always a good idea no matter when you want to go, it is the place where most people choose to celebrate Christmas. The tradition is to meet in Time Square. At 00.00, the square is crowded of people that meet to see a huge crystal ball going down. While the ball is going down, people start to count down in order to say goodbye to the last seconds of the year.

This tradition is so famous and typical that many are the places around NY that are imitating this custom in a similar way.

Other places in the USA with original traditions could be:

Pasadena, where the party called “Roses Parade” is much known. It consists of a colourful spectacle with many parades with flowers that get to meet many people to say welcome to the New Year.

Orlando is the destiny chosen by many people during this period to celebrate the event. Here you can find Disneyland Park, the perfect place where children and adults have fun.

Chicago is another city where you can enjoy the most special events for these days. It is in this place where you can enjoy amazing fireworks from Michigan Lake, a spectacular show full of lights and colour.

People that are fan of extreme feelings and sensations, snow and sports would love to celebrate these years in Colorado. The Grand Canyon and Aspen are the best places to practise ski. Without any doubt, it is a very original way to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

It is in Los Angeles where is possible to attend concerts, ice skating and shows on the water. Celebrating New Year’s Eve in this city can make your days unforgettable. LA also stands out for the free entrance amazing parties of Long Beach, and for the most exclusives parties that take place at Queen Mary.

Other curious traditions.

In Italy is very famous to have lentils for dinner, it means richness and money. This is why this dish is a must in every Italian dinner during the 31st.

In Spain, the tradition says to eat 12 grapes with the first 12 seconds of the year in order to say welcome to new twelve months.

The Danish tradition commands to break the crockery after the New Year’s Eve dinner . It represents affection and good luck for the upcoming year.

In Philippines, the streets are decorated with polka-dots. People dress in that pattern, no matter which garment is. For them, the dots are synonym of richness due to their similarity to a coin.

No matter where people spend this night, what matters is that is a special date to celebrate in the best way and with the people we love.

ONESIXONE wants to wish you a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. Wherever you celebrate this day, our best wishes are for you.

Anna Talens work of art and inspiration

Dec 4, 2017 | by Onesixone Bags

No Comments

The Artist

Anna Talens is an artist born in Valencia, Spain, although nowadays she lives in Berlin. It is in this city where she has developed great part of her artistic career, and where she has found inspiration for many or her works.

 

This artist studied in “Universidad Politécnica de Valencia”, where she was reckoned as Summa Cum Laude in 2011, and later on she received the Price of Best Thesis of the Year.

She has a broad academic background, as she has enjoyed different abroad experience as student, and she has worked as professor and also as researcher in many European universities.

Anna Talens Work 

Anna Talens based her creation process on two principles: the use of hand-made repetitive process, and the reuse of objects that already exist. What is known as object trouvé.

 

The results of her work are unique pieces that connect the viewer with something known and something unknown, getting the ordinary to be extraordinary. It is about a transformation process of the existing materials of the tangible world, as she described.

In her work, the artist uses artistic resources like the repetition, arbitrariness and the accumulation, by cultivating a perverted minimalist by the presence of the colour and texture of the material.

 

 

Anna Talens artista

Anna Talens always try to look for the beauty of the imperfection on objects, reflected of the manual processes and the shape of the elements of the natural world.

All this inspiration can be reflected in her multidisciplinary works that covers from installations, to sculptures, photography and canvas. A walk around this exposition is amazingly able to let you fascinated and dreamy in front of the work of art. It shows that the reuse of objects can get something ordinary into something extraordinary

 

BAGS BEYOND ANNA TALENS

Anna Talens has been the second artist, after Vicky Uslé, in collaborating with the luxury handbag brand ONESIXONE. On her work on the handbags, together with the creative director of the brand, Adrian Salvador, the artist has been loyal to her personality and artistic entity and has known how to illustrate what has been previously exposed.

 

Behind this collection, “echoes from my former creations can be heard: gold craft based on the Japanese technique Kintsugi; handmade metallic crocheting, endless pin fields which invite you to touch… in short, the recreation of a dreamlike world that speaks about life and the common mysteries to any human being existence.” It concludes Anna Talens.

 

From this collaboration emerged the handbags from the Endless family: Hobo Endless and Endless Clutch, as well as the iconic Gaia inspired by the artist.

The Hobo Endless is a breaking and different handbag from the original Gaia that represents the brand, although it follows the Aurea Proportion that characterised ONESIXONE. The shape of the handbag transmits sophistication as well simplicity

The Endless Clutch is also based on textures that have inspired the expositions of the artist.  The verticality of this elegant model, similar to the fall of a drop of water, a vegetable bud or a flower that opens in the same way as the bag, expresses the harmony of the golden design that inspires the brand within an infinite pattern.

Finally, the iconic Gaia inspired by the golden works of the artist. Three different models of the same small handbag based on minerals, as if it were jewels.

 

The inspiration and work of Anna Talens for ONESIXONE allows an extension of her art to a more wearable way, democratizing the art. This is why, it is included on each handbag of this collection, a book of art in which it is explained all the creation process, as well as the joining work the creative director Adrian Salvador, and some reflexions of the artist. On the preface of it, it is included a conversation between the prestigious Enrique Loewe and the architect Izaskun Chinchilla. It is a precious sample that you would find inside of a magically presented box.
