Amazing images from André Courrèges‘ heyday in Assouline‘s beautiful tome.  Why no one has re-taken this bull by the horns is beyond me.  Maybe some things are better left alone. Read the rest of this entry »

Mann's World

I absolutely love Charlotte Mann’s drawings.  I want to get lost in her chaotic world of outlines.

A graduate of Central St. Martin’s (of course she is,) she started her career in fashion design, and styling but has since moved on to focus on her illustration. She now teaches at the University of the Arts and is is an Associate Lecturer at St Martin’s, Chelsea School of Art and Camberwell College of Art, and the Prince’s Drawing School.  

This black and white is anything but simple.

No Time for You

One of my favorite adages is “Even a broken clock is right twice a day.”  Well Linda Kostowski’s realfakewatches are just that. (Unless you go with the digital version.)  The watches are laser-cut from three pieces of leather and manually assembled.  They’re fastened with velcro and each one comes with a unique time hand-picked by their “randomizer robot.”  Or you can pick the time with a custom order.  Super cute. Get ’em at HERE.

Or any footwear that can be referred to as a “kick” “sneaker” or “limited edition.”  Ever. Period.  

I believe a man’s wardrobe should only consist of three pairs of the same jean, two collared shirts, three polos, and a sweater that can be worn on any occasion. Everything should be modular and go with everything else. More than that is just weird.  Matt understands this and this is why we get along.

Now that this is clear, these just happen to be really great. If I were a guy I would own ten pairs of these.

Fantastic timely and mood-dependent necklace by Mark Pawson.  It’s a big question under the candy-colored plastic letters. Really depends on the day I suppose…
