White Rabbit by Nicholas Kirkwood

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories of all time, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Parisian department store, Printemps, had asked a few designers to design a piece based on it for their window displays in February.

The first piece I’ve seen so far has been Nicholas Kirkwood, who was inspired by the White Rabbit.  Kinda over-the-top, but it makes me really excited to see what everyone else comes up with.

Free Inspiration.. Please?

I really hope some talented young designer soon decides to be inspired by cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema of the movie,  Let the Right One In, and bases a line of clothing on it.  I would probably most definitely wear it.

Old School Lights Done New

I can think of more than one place these vintage inspired lights could go in my apartment.  I especially love the antique looking bulbs.

DIY Junkyard

This reminded me of Wes so much that I had to repost it.  A few months ago the flusher on our toilet broke.  I came home from work and there was an antique doorknob in its place.  To flush, all you have to do is pretend that you’re opening a door.

The Butcher: Joel Hester & The Weld House

Why is it that I am fine with taxidermy, and yet this art form turns my stomach? Revolting, but I can not look away:

“Snoopy” Leather Flying Caps

I just about passed out when I saw that Hermès was charging $840 for their leather flying caps (not including goggles)..  and what’s worse, they SOLD OUT!


Why not just do what I did and pay $33.95 (or $75 w/ goggles), by ordering yours from U.S. Wings?  Look at you, smartypants!

Eye Candy

I saw these in Vogue Italia back in June or July, tore them out and saved them for no good reason.  I don’t know why, but it sure makes me want to buy an animal shaped hat against my better judgment.

Material Focus: Oh Sheet Aluminum!

Formed sheet aluminum has the ability to make me weak with a greedy, covetous feeling. Here are a few nice examples:

Banksy on the Big Screen

British graffiti artist, Banksy, has been a favorite street artist of mine for a long time.  His high quality tags are not only an upscale alternative to the amature scribble, but they provoke thought and meaning as well.   I have to say, I’m pretty excited to see this (trailer below) when it comes out!
