nautilus acqua

release date: 04/14/2011
limited release in size 5, 6, 7, doll wrap
price: 99 € for a sz 6

hey, didymos really has done some great fishing today and released a second wrap. this time a 100% cotton wrap with the nautilus pattern in blue/green…and i’m already in love. it reminds me alot of indio april, a beautiful release from 2010. this wrap wowed me so much that i cannot stop looking at the swatch. we have to wait until the 21 th again and i.simply.cannot.wait.

today the nautili arrive and i really had to laugh out loud when i compared the weight of the nautili box and the pesce pazzi box.

post-wash measurements on a sz 6:

length: 4.93  m

weight: 610 g

->123.73  g/m

pre-wash the nautili are already a very soft and thin wrap. i think they feel almost the same as other nautili like nautilus perlmutt. i expect them to be very moldable and soft when they are washed and dried. they have a beautiful greenish shimmer and they seem to be a perfect summer wrap for the beach.

i will post some nice comparison pictures later. the petrol threads are identical to threads in fische petrol/honig (with wool) or goldfische (with linen). the green can be found in geckos antigua, too.

pesci pazzi

release date: 04/14/2011
limited release in size 5, 6, 7, doll wrap

wow, these colours are really crazy – pesci pazzi, the crazy fish will be available from didymos from 04/21/2011. they are a 100% cotton wrap (it is said medium thickness) in purple and fuchsia….purple ? i might remember something didy recently said…i guess this is a bright and stunning wrap for summer. it totally reminds me of a 2009 release: indio scilla.

the pink side that you can see on the swatch is the “wrong” side of the wrap. the other side is purple (like elburg, latimeria,…) with pink fish.

after a lot of chatter about the swatch didymos posted (and changed) the crazy fish are finally here. i was really curious and was first of all rewarded with a thick wrap (yes ! i love thick wraps !). it reminds me a lot of latimeria fish and i also don’t think that the first swatch was way off. this is a purple wrap with pink fish – and the other side is a pink wrap with purple fish. i guess it was disturbing that didymos showed the ‘wrong’ side with their first swatch, and as a lot of people only wrap the ‘right’ side they felt disappointed. well…i do not get all this ‘wrong side, right side’ stuff, i wrap with the side that suits me.

i think everyone recognized the purple didymos used. the pink threads have been used recently in indio burgund, too.
