Unique Showing of JB Bags And Pre-Launch of Book "Gustavia" By Jenny Stening

EXCLUSIVE TO SAINT BARTHELEMY, SATURDAY 23RD OF FEBRUARY 2008 UNIQUE SHOWING OF JB BAGS AND PRE-LAUNCH OF BOOK GUSTAVIA BY JENNY STENING

Jenny Stening will personally come to the island with an exclusive pre-print
version of her firstbook about the Swedish buildings in Gustavia. In addition you will be able to enjoy an extended show of her current collection of JB design bags featured exclusively at Swedish Design Center.

Jenny has a special connection with St. Barths, setting footon the island for the first time 1994 when sailing here as a teenager. She has continued to visit over the years and has now written a book based on a sign posted walk of significant buildings and places in Gustavia, a project created and presented by her to the municipality of Saint BarthAelemy in 2004. It is anarchitectural and historic guide to Gustavia with focus on the period 1785-1878, a time when the island was under Swedish rule, and a period in which Gustavia was founded and formed into what it still looks like today. Taking a stroll in this compact town, with its one way streets and urban character, is a good way to discover its identity. The book begins with an introduction that aims to put the island in wider perspective and introduce the reader to the fascinating town of Gustavia.

"The fact that it is one of few colonial towns built by Swedes has made it interesting for me as a Swedish architect."

Jenny has designed a unique collection using high-tech sail cloths, making the most of the strong, light, durable andwater resistant characteristics of the material. This combined with modern design makes a great collection of smart and sportive products.
