The Lake Stories, the full story

The lake is where the dragons were born. Their rare eggs are hidden on the lakebed until one of the other creatures living in the water brings them up to the surface. Here they are cracked open using a very special and secret procedure. It is at this precise point that the dragons’ power to clean and create new water is formed. The lakeside inhabitants and dragons look after the world’s water together and together they are the guards of the lake. Their task is gigantic.

Because the lake flows into every waterway of the world, their organisation above and below the lake’s surface is both vast and demanding, while their work is under constant threat. 

The Story Hunters are inquisitive. They want to document and take control of all the stories’ secrets. They are always seeking new discoveries and trying to steal secrets. They have been watching the lake for many years, ever since the time they managed to get through the portal to the lake. They want to own the recipe for new water and take control of the powers that purify water. They also know they can make a fortune if they manage to steal the dragons’ eggs and they dream of taming the dragons so they can move quickly over the borders of the different lands. 

By the lake, a guard is always on the lookout. The dark water, the waves, the ripples, the glimmer, the shadows... everything must be guarded. Everyone at the lake has heard the story of the time evil Story Hunters managed to get in and grab the treasure born at the bottom of the lake. When they managed to get away with the lake’s secret, without really understanding how much could have been lost.

THE FLYING BOAT was the first one that these ingenious Sea Makers constructed after the Story Hunters evil attack. The ship can travel at the speed of light and is the only vehicle that can pass through the portal to and from the lake. The boat constantly sails across the surface followed by an entourage of small guard boats.

MR TOM is the last dragon to be born by the lake. He was one of four dragons who survived. Tom symbolises strength and hope. When the guards of the lake see Tom, they’re confident there will be more eggs in the lake, and hopeful that the dragons’ time is not over.

MISS BIANCA is the Sea Makers’ leader and her nest is below the water’s surface. They build tools to help the Lake guards withstand any potential attack. That time when the Story Hunters managed to get through the portal, they stole three dragons’ eggs and ever since then the water’s existence has been under threat.

SWAN BOAT The portal to the secret lake is watched by diligent guards. They work day and night and to stay awake they listen to stories. The stories are always about that horrific episode that occurred once down by the water, and they reinforce their motivation to guard the lake at any price.

MISS LAURA can stare down into the dark water for hours. She never tires of it. The lake gives her glimpses of the future when she discerns the water’s language and knows exactly when it’s time to dive in or call for help. She senses the signals in the air, can talk to the animals and conveys tranquillity.

MISS INES has seen everything. Once the Story Hunters came and managed to capture the treasure from the bottom of the lake without really understanding how much can be destroyed. Ines saw, but didn’t have time to raise the alarm. Today she is equipped and prepared. As a constant reminder, and to stay alert herself, she tells The Lake Stories to the guards. The stories foster preparedness and inner strength.

MR EDWARD knows that his species is threatened. He works tirelessly to try to find more eggs. The dragon eggs can only be found on the lakebed and they are placed into safe storage as soon as possible. Edward stands for strength and tenacity and as long as Edward lives, there is always hope for the lake’s inhabitants.

MISS EVA spreads joy. When gloom descends and hard work gnaws at her friends, Eva just laughs. She is like the weighing scales of sadness and joy, as her laughter is like medicine. Eva takes others’ sorrow and fears and gives back pure joy. 

Poster MISS EVA size 30x40 cm. 

All these amazing images are styled and taken by Jasmina Bylund & Anna Kubel.  

MISS EVA

Miss Eva is our lucky pill. After this incredible respons from you we are so happy she finally came to life. She was not meant to be from the very first beginning... but after so many round of "kill your darlings" she was impossible to resist. We had fallen in love. 

We thought that perhaps Miss Della would have sole rights over butterflies and that Eva was not ritual of the inhabitants of the lake ...

One of our most common questions is if we can not make more posters in smaller format .. so at the last minute we decided that Eva would be part of this collection and that we would make her in smaller format, 30x40 cm. 

She already take place at my daughters room beside larger prints of size 40x50 cm and 50x70 cm. We love the mix of different sizes in the photo wall.

Dragon eggs or Easter eggs... However it is Egg season! <3
 

SWEDISH:
I sjön föds drakarna. Deras sällsynta ägg göms på botten tills någon av de andra figurerna som lever i sjön bär upp dem till ytan. Där kläcks de under en mycket speciell och hemlig procedur. Precis då skapas drakarnas kraft att kunna rena och skapa nytt vatten. Invånarna vid sjön och drakarna tar tillsammans hand om världens vatten och utgör tillsammans sjöns väktare. Deras uppdrag är enormt.

Eftersom sjön leder till världens alla vatten är deras organisation under och ovan sjöns yta både omfattande och krävande, dessutom är deras uppdrag ständigt hotad. 

Sagojägarna är vetgiriga. De vill dokumentera och äga makten om alla sagors hemligheter. De är ständigt på jakt efter nya upptäckter och att stjäla hemligheter. De har bevakat sjön i många år, sedan de en gång lyckades ta sig in genom portalen till sjön. De vill äga receptet för nytt vatten och ta kontroll över krafterna som renar vatten. De vet dessutom att de kan tjäna en förmögenhet om de lyckas fånga drakäggen och de drömmer om att tämja drakarna för att snabbt kunna förflytta sig mellan ländernas gränser. 

Vid sjön sitter alltid en vakt. Det mörka vattnet, vågorna, krusandet, glittret, skuggorna.. allt måste bevakas. Alla vid sjön har hört sagan om när ondskan lyckades ta sig in och fånga det som föds på botten. När sagojägarna lyckades ta med sig sjöns hemlighet därifrån utan att egentligen förstå hur mycket som kunde ha gått förlorat.

Quite a few photo moments at Hôtel Eggers in Gothenburg

We stayed one night in Gothenburg for meetings and more. Hôtel Eggers gave my camera a hard time working with all beautiful corners and lovely areas and later, me to sort images to pic a few for the blog... Well, can't really say I managed to pic a few selected... there was quite a few more photo moments then I expected. However, this lovely hotel is within short walking distance from central station. Perfect location if you only stay one night and need to be close to the train. 

New article in Vouge telling all about what's hot and what's not i my lovely hometown... read more here (http://www.vogue.com/article/gothenburg-sweden-travel-guide

DESIGNER HANDS ON SECOND HAND

January Mood

January mood and inspiration for the new Mrs Mighetto office... Can't wait to put our hands into the final details and final fix. So exited!  

Two new girls arrived to the circus....

The circus has been reinforced. Two girls have joined us and it feels like they have belonged with us like forever. Miss Astrid and Miss Klara. Launched today as a surprise before Christmas.

MISS ASTRID
...Astrid has the invisible power to conjure up and spread imagination. The higher she swings, the further her power reaches. Before Astrid’s eyes, her flowing imagination streams out like stars. Small glittering stars. But these stars are not visible to all. Because imagination works on a higher plane - beyond the reach of normal sight – and helps us learn new things. Astrid knows that she can never stop swinging because it takes so much imagination to evoke magical worlds. 
 

72-klara-c1.jpg

MISS KLARA
…The little drummer can be heard far and wide. No sooner has the circus pitched the Big Top, then Klara marches in. She appears as if from nowhere. Her drum can be heard from miles around. It calls to the lonely, the outcast and the abandoned. And only those who need it can hear the bang of her drum. Boom, boom, boom. Klara’s performance helps attract new members to the circus, and in the fullness of time, to change their lives.

The Posters measure 50x70 cm. Limited edition, when it's sold out, it is sold out forever and ever.

Please find our list of retailers here.

Images from our launch event yesterday

Lots of love to VINTAGE FABRIKEN that hosted our launch event for CIRCUS MIGHETTO yesterday. Their shop is among the finest we've seen. A small treasure trove of beautiful things. Here a short potpourri of images from the store. Love. Love. Love.

Mood boards

It always starts with a mood board. We're gone photo hunting. Pinterest is such an inspiring place. I can get lost forever. Picture after picture. Click by click. One more beautiful styling after the other. What will happen to all interior magazines? Cant help myself wondering.. Turn the pages of a magazine certainly provides the tactile feeling and the love in the wicker-chair with a cup of tea... but for rapid inspo Pinterest is so available and accurate. Love it.

Mood boards for the girls, Billie-Rose and Ruby-Li. 

From the photo session with upcoming collection "Les Petits"

In every photo there is an Eiffel tower. We just love the colour scale from latest photo shot. When we decided on the blue wall there was nothing that could stop us. No beauty sleep that night either... Hope you like. To be continued... 

När man väl får en idé är den så gott som omöjlig att lägga band på. Har man tänkt en blå vägg spelar det liksom ingen roll om klockan är långt över 22 och fotograferingen ska starta morgonen efter klockan 8:00. Målas ska det, om det så är den förlorande sömnen man aldrig får igen. En smakprov från all vacker rekvisita. Vi är kära i färgskalan. Rosa tyllfluff, blått och en gnutta senap. Dessutom gömmer det sig ett Eiffeltorn på varenda produktbild... Vive la France. Hoppas att ni gillar! 

 

The wallpaper 'On Clouds!"

This wallpaper is a collaboration between us and talented Jimmy Cricket, and we are so happy about it. Producing a wallpaper is a dream come true.

Earlier this year Amanda from Jimmy Cricket approached us asking if we would be interested in a wallpaper collaboration. 

Amanda said: "I just loved their prints so I was so excited when they agreed to collaborate on a design! I suggested swans and waited eagerly to see what was dreamt up. The first pattern design was sent through and I just gasped!! This was beyond anything that I could have asked for. I knew then and there that this design was something extraordinary and unlike anything I had ever seen before!"

Included with each roll of wallpaper is Mrs Mighetto's story behind the design...

"Nestled high up in the clouds is a hidden world you probably never even knew existed. Powder pink kites dance through the warm air, enchanted tunnels with continually changing architecture, rainbows spontaneously appearing to create lavish light shows. Unicorns with golden wings gallop unbridled between cloud and sky, and a fountain which scatters lime green scented flower buds. You'll find friends who can turn clouds into candy floss and fish who can sing as sweetly as the nightingale's song. What else do you think might be found up there in the clouds? Once upon a time, high up in the sky, there was a world in which everything was possible. Just like in real life. Everything is possible."

The wallpaper will be released through Jimmy Cricket and Norsu Interiors on the 28th of September and stay tuned for more international stockists... We will update the web and social media as often as possible. 

Thank your ro all kind comments. 
We are so happy and excited!

This stunning images are amazing, we really love everything about them.

Mr Harry & Miss Karin

Jag kom plötsligt ihåg att vi inte skrivit om Karin och Harry. Nämen, hoppla-hoppla! Våra små finheter som vi lanserade hos Mokkasin för ett tag sedan. Vilken tur att de fortfarande finns kvar, för det vore ju knasigt att skryta om ett samarbete som inte ens finns. 

I suddenly remembered that we have not written about Miss Karin and Mr Harry. Whoopsi-daisy! Our small sweethearts which we launched in Mokkasin a while ago. How lucky they are still avalable, because that would be weird to brag about prints that does not even exist.

Ingen drar så smarta och viktiga slutsatser som Mr Harry. Han funderar länge, överväger sina valmöjligheter, formulerar sig med kraft och ka-boom slår han sina åhörare med häpnad. Han är en retorisk mästare i sagoberättande och trollbinder sina åhörare med humor och charm. Alla vill hänga med Harry runt lägerelden.

No-one comes to such clever and important conclusions as Mr Harry. He ponders for a while, considers his options, chooses his words carefully and WHAM – he strikes his audience with utter amazement! He’s a master of storytelling and his audience is enchanted by his wit and charm. Everyone wants to sit with Harry by the campfire.

Miss Karin heter Etoile i mellannamn. Hon föddes en stjärnklar natt någonstans i de mystiska kvarteren på Paris mörka gator. Etoile betyder stjärna på franska och skvallrar om hennes ursprung. Karin delar gärna med sig av sin passion för det vackra och kan genom en blinkning beställa stjärnfall. Om man ser ett stjärnfall kan man aldrig veta om det är Karin som vill bjucka på något vackert…

Miss Karin’s middle name is Etoile. She was born under a starlit sky somewhere in the dark and mysterious streets of Paris’ most ominous quarters. Etoile means ‘star’ in French and this tells us a lot about who she is. Karin loves to share her passion for all things beautiful, and can create a shooting star in the blink of an eye. If you see a shooting star, you can never be quite sure whether or not it’s Karin, who may be in the mood to treat you to something beautiful…
