Catalog Photo Redux

I am in love with this personal and creative approach to marketing. European clothing brand Edwin invites different photographers to interpret each of their seasonal collections.  The most recent SS11 release is just as beautiful as past iterations with work by photographer Benjamin Robinson*.  Although I do love The Selby,  I prefer Robinson’s approach to...

Garance Love via Paris

MothLove

Designer Gretchen Jones has crafted an ethereal, mystical world for her beautiful clothing line MothLove.  Aside from the fact that I fell in love with a ton of pieces during my recent introduction to her work (esp the blazer she designed and was wearing), I was most impressed by the way she had cohesively branded...

Vegas: And So it Begins

The big apparel shows that visit Vegas twice a year (Magic, Project, and ENK) are like dress-up for grown ups. The people-watching is double-o-c, but some of the lines on display are even more track-stoppable than the girl in neon pink tights (and matching flats). Some of the truly inspired lines I’ve been spotting will...

Hermes Installation in Japan

Gorgeous installation for Hermes by renowned Japanese artist Tokujin Yoshioka on display in Tokyo through January 19th. “On designing a window-display of Maison Hermès, I intended to express people’s daily ‘movements’ with a suspicion of humour.

Postcards from Vegas

Just got back from a whirlwind two days in Las Vegas for fashion tradeshows Project + ENK. Although ENK feels like a sophisticated and elite cocktail party, Project is like a trendy circus.  A plethora of chandeliers, discoballs, photobooths and creative seating dotted the convention center.  Above are images from the scene. More here.

Knitting the Naughty Bits

Anne Richardson is putting your grandmother to shame. With the help of only one or two others, Anne knitted Bruno’s cheeky yellow lederhosen you now see plastered all over buses, billboards and boardwalks around the globe. She also created the ‘naked suit’ for Bruno and his colorful crew at a premiere in Amsterdam. Her “normal”...
