J. Brand denim.

April 30th, 2008 · Comments Off on J. Brand denim.

Dearest J. Brand, I think I’m in love. I bought a pair of your Skinny Low-Rise Jean in Ink on Sunday. It is now Wednesday, and I have yet to remove them from my body.  Oh, and just in case you have an extra pair laying around, collecting dust, I’d be more than happy to […]

What comes around, goes around

April 29th, 2008 · Comments Off on What comes around, goes around

It’s no secret that painting a subway line is the ultimate goal for most graffiti writers, and this is true worldwide.

Marimekko for X and Y.

April 28th, 2008 · Comments Off on Marimekko for X and Y.

Finnish textile design company Marimekko, known for its bold prints and geometrically informed patterns, has been around since 1951. In its heyday of the 60s and 70s, clients could purchase material at local stores and create one-of-a-kind, statement-making pieces — I imagine sewing a long sun dress and pairing it with some sunjuns and a […]

Still life anyone?

April 28th, 2008 · Comments Off on Still life anyone?

Consider this a wry homage to still-life drawing and/or painting. Instead of fumbling around the house for an object, this fruit bowl stands at the ready, just waiting for your inner artist to take advantage of its convenience. Check it out at Matter.

Stuart Haygarth.

April 25th, 2008 · Comments Off on Stuart Haygarth.

In addition to his photography of handmade collages of 2D imagery and 3D objects on a large-format camera, Stuart Haygarth constructs lighting fixtures from found objects. Taking an object and reconstructing it into a new object gives the viewer a new perspective on the multiple lives of a single product. The Millennium Chandelier is constructed […]

I caught a glimpse of this guy on the news last night and again today on my way to work — he’s an alligator snapping turtle and the newest member of The New England Aquarium’s aquatic family. Seems normal enough, but it’s how he spent his first life that amazed me — Fluffy’s previous owner, […]

Pear despair no more!

April 24th, 2008 · Comments Off on Pear despair no more!

Thanks to AG over at Fashionista for suggesting this ingenious and yes, extravagant apple-toting Hermès purse as a solution to preserving my fruit. Shaped like the fruit of its loins, this lambskin purse lined in stainless steel will protect your apple (I’m sure I could finagle a pear in there somehow) until you’re ready to […]
