I was wearing a Barbara Í Gongini layered vest thing at work today so I thought I would pay tribute to one of my favourite avant-garde fashion designers with some of my favourite looks in her current collection.
LOVE LOVE LOVE these wallpapers!!! Laura Jo Wegman of Metolius made these wallpapers in her San Francisco studio from her own hand-painted artwork and then has them printed in small-batches using eco-friendly paints and papers. Also, the coolest part is that they are customizable so you can pick your background and your pattern colour (her site shows you what your selections looks like). So fantastic!
Frédéric DUCOS is a professional art photographer from France who contacted us recently and he has the most amazing eye and takes the most beautiful photos. He shoots mainly in Europe and his photos are for sale in limited editions of 30 copies, signed, numbered. He specializes in landscapes, urban, street photography, architecture… If you’re looking for some modern and graphic art for your walls do check out his work. LOVE!
Love these from artKRAFT!!!
Florariums – urban jungle in glass
In days of old the exotic florariums originally once were used for the plants transported between Great Britain and its faraway colonies. In 1829 an English physician, Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward noticed for the first time that there are plants, which live longer in glass than in its own garden. The flowering of modern florariums developed in the ‘60s and ‘70s, and nowadays has arrived the third, modern generation of bottle-gardens.
The northern atmosphere and naturalness inspired the really special florarium’s of artKRAFT.
We found beautiful, huge officinal blown glasses, exactly five pieces. Around these craftsmen made by hand from solid walnut and iron holders and covers. This way the big-sized creations attract the eye on themselves, but also function well as life accessories. The Magic Garden stratified in them special soils, and then filled with wonderful plants, lichens and mosses. It has emerged a miniature ecosystem, in which we can continuously watch, shape and rarefy the slow-growing plants. Tranquility inspired from a small piece of nature flows from the glasses. We provide a detailed guide to the limited number of florariums, but requires little care after a steady state.
I love jeans. I wear them all the time and hate buying any pants but jeans. I was looking through the selection at SSENSE and was amazed, and somewhat baffled, at the variety of designer jeans out there these days. For the record, a few of these I absolutely love. For most of the others I’m just shaking my head.
