I love the lines and the contrast of this bent tubular steel and canvas furniture from the 
French 1960's PRISUNIC furniture catalogue. A mail order catalogue of the french department 
store offered modern, inexpensive, well designed furniture eventually paving the way for
brands like Habitat in 1973 and later Ikea in 1981.

Heathermary Jackson and William Gonzales, both contributors to our lingerie 
photobook, came over for a play-date this past weekend and the skateboard came 
with them. My boys jumped at the eye candy and took off around the apartment. The 
board was a gift from William's dad skater, Mark Gonzales, who picked it up on a trip 
to Australia.
I couldn't get it out of my head so I asked Heathermary to send me a photo...

I was looking at the web store of one of our UK stockist, Couverture & The Garbstore, 
and I immediately spotted this necklace by Lizzie Fortunato. It's not something I would 
automatically wear, but I am drawn to it. I like finding things that I don't know what to 
do with and seeing how I can make them fit into my style.

I love these records.. made of glass. They were the first recordings from the Volta 
Laboratory of sounds.  I love how although the recordings are of simple tests, they 
are executed  beautifully. I am sure I would hate how they sound.

This one is the sound of the word "barometer" repeated several times.

KIM DONG YOO By Araks on 2012-03-23 07:32:18 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK

Looking for inspiration.. Yesterday we walked around Chelsea, in and out of a few 

galleries. My favorite was Kim Dong Yoo's exhibit at the Hasted Hunt Kraeutler Art 
Gallery. Love the relationship between the two people... Maryiln all over JFK. Princess 
Diana all over the Queen. I didn't know what the connection was between Einstein & 
Marylin so I googled it. It's crazy, they look one in the same.  If I were to pick any of 
these to hang in my house, I'd pick the Van Gogh because I don't think I'd like 
paintings of people.

Ok, this whole thing is a bit odd... I kept watching it to figure out what was going on.

and how it stays consistent with the brand.

Spike Jonze and Olympia Le-Tan collaborated to make this charming stop motion 
animation short. I love how they created this concept; already a rich one in Olympia's 
book cover inspired bags.

THE ARMORY SHOW 2012 By Araks on 2012-03-12 12:48:01 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK
I went to the Armory Show in New York on Sunday. I liked this year better then last... 
Though I didn't make it through the whole show. I also went to see Cindy Sherman at 
the Moma earlier that day. Too much art to process. These are some of my favorites.

I kind of love these chairs.  They remind me of Eames.  Even the color palette.
