I love the 80’s avant-garde spiegel catalog look in the first 4 photos and those pants below that are so great. There is so much amazing menswear for women right now.

Friday I went to see Taken by Trees at the Hiro Ballroom, which is such a beautiful venue. Lanterns everywhere and lavender lighting on stage is all I could ever ask for in a small venue. If only every band could tour in small nice spaces like that. Victoria Bergsman has an incredible voice and covered of Sweet Child O’ Mine which was so good I bought the 7″. I wish more bands still put out records.
I love these colors and settings. They are the best way I have seen these spring clothes displayed so far and the most interesting way to wear them.
A colorful backdrop never hurts but they are really great outfits. I know magazines have to support their advertisers but as you can see here, it doesn’t have to be so dull.
images from I-D magazine.
Photos by Fumiko Imano. From what I understand she is not a twin these are all her in the photos. That’s her sewing with Charles Anastase too! I also found this ad for her, did she have a show? a perfume..? I’m not exactly sure but it’s a pretty illustration.
I love Charles Anastase’s work. If I could afford to, or even find them in stores (I’ve only seen them in Barneys once), I would wear Charles Anastase’s dresses all the time. There are very few designers that I love whose sensibilities are frequently consistent with mine, usually I only love a few collections and then a few pieces here and there of certain designers, but Charles is so good all the time! His drawings are incredible and so are the pillows he used to create, these I saved off of his old site a long time ago. I also wish I had that tea set!
My favorite place to go for breakfast is thé adoré, it feels like you are in a little french japonais country bakery in a miyazake film. It’s so peaceful and there is a view of a beautiful tree out the large window.
Some photos of a bookbinding class I took this weekend at the Arm in Brooklyn. It was so great! Wed did a little bit of letterpressing too! I learned the correct way to make all my little books. I never knew I was binding them all in a Japanese style all this time, which I learned was not the best way for the kind and size of paper I was using. We learned a few different techniques and got to play around with creating any kind of books we wanted. Dan at the Arm has different classes regularly so check his site. There is another fun bookbinding class I heard about coming up soon!
Beautiful colors and coats and jackets from the new issue of Jalouse.
This was what I was hoping to wake up to this morning (except replace all the cute colorful houses with gray buildings), but instead it was all slushy and rainy. It was so nice to see it finally snow last night, but it was so short!
Along with Iekeleine the Strange, Coco Rocha and Freja Beha Ericsson, another of my favorite models right now is Meghan Collison.
She has such a cool look to her with her perfect straight dark hair and bangs.
It’s been a long week of parties and shows. I am tiiiiired..but it was fun.
