NO FISH NO NOTHING

Support BLUE Marine Foundation's action and save marine life! 

 

We are extremely excited about our long term partnership between KENZO and BLUE and hope to create more and more awareness to the overfishing issue. 

BLUE’s mission statement is the active and effective protection of 10% of the world’s oceans by 2020, delivered through a network of marine reserves and private sector led solutions in the sea.

To financially assist the Blue Marine Foundation with all their endeavours, KENZO has launched a line of unisex sweaters and tee-shirts with the slogan “No fish no nothing”. 

See the line for women and for men.

“I took this one at the Caracol Park in Canela, near Gramado, Rio Grande do Sul, this year, where my husband was one of the judges at one of the biggest film festivals of Brazil. So when we got to the balcony, while everyone was looking down, I looked up and noticed that there was a window to the sky. And there was my shot."


Here is what Carol and Humberto had to say about their pick : “This is a wonderful sky picture and we love the fact that it needs a double take, that it takes a second to understand what it is. And we happen to do that too with our work!”

 

The following winners got picked by Carol and Humberto and won a “Day Clouds” iPhone5 case :

Laura Miano (@lauramiano) from Melbourne, Australia :


“This picture was taken while I was on a road trip to Byron Bay. A friend and I happened to wake up at 5am and when we went outside we were greeted with this amazing sunrise!”

Julie Lours (@julielours) from Montreal, Canada :


“July 19 2013 in Toronto. After a thunderous storm, there was a post-aocalyptic atmosphere in the city, clouds were litteraly poping out of the sky which had turned all yellow… Time to go out for a beer and capture that eerie vision with my rusted iphone!”

Christian Scharf (@torrent_av) from Stockholm, Sweden :


“This photo was sprung out of inspiration straight after a visit to the modern art section of the National Art Gallery, with the more-than-awesome room of Calder sculptures. It actually shows a small part of the triangular stylish west wing building against the blue Washington D.C. sky. The darkened black section is a real mystery, I really have no idea where it came from.”

Nicolas Talon (@nicolas_heel) from Rhode Island, USA :


“I took this pic in a field near my French hometown. I’ve always wanted to go to United States and since last August it became a reality : I am studying in Rhode Island for a year!”

Homs Padrisa Carme (@carmehomsp) from Barcelona, Spain :

 

“I took this photo at Cotllioure (France) in Easter week, on april 2013. It was a trip of many good pictures along the route Barcelona, Cadaques, Cap de Creus, Collioure. It was a nice rainy week but very lovely. I've got good memories!”

Pauline Alexia (@blogenbeaute) from Paris, France :


“On a spring evening, as I was standing on my balcony in Paris, I got taken over by the magic of the sky…”

Jorge Fuentes Cervantes (@georgefuentesc) from Mexico :


“I took this picture while I was having a break from a busy day in summer, I saw the sky and it make me felt like fliying =)”

GOLDEN PETAL
Slices of scallops and raw porcini mushrooms

 

Appetizer
Serves 4

 

Ingredients
8 large raw scallops without their coral
8 large fresh porcini mushrooms
4 tsp. hazelnut oil
4 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. elderberry syrup
Chives
Fine sea salt
Freshly-ground pepper
4 slices of farmhouse bread

 

Method
Ask your fish merchant to extract the scallops from their shells, remove the coral and clean them. Then pass the scallops under running water, wipe them and set them aside in a cool place in an airtight container.  
Brush the mushrooms (but without washing them) and cut off the earthy parts of the feet. Store the feet in a cool place for later use
(in an omelet or a soup, for example).

 

On a work surface, cut the mushrooms into thin slices approx. 3mm thick.
Bring out the scallops and cut them into slices of the same thickness.

 

On the plates, alternate slices of scallops and of mushrooms in decreasing rows, add a little salt.

 

Mix the oils and the elderberry syrup in a bowl.
Pour the mixture generously over the scallop and mushroom preparation and sprinkle with chives. Add pepper.

 

Serve straight away with a slice of freshly-toasted farmhouse bread.
