Apartmento magazine Scout Holiday

Apartmento magazine Scout Holiday

Scout and I have been spending a lot of time inside reading since I hurt my ankle recently.. Luckily my intern this summer Lauren was so sweet and brought me back a copy of Apartmento from her trip to Barcelona, and she made me a mix cd before she headed back to LA. She will be missed! I had only seen this magazine online before, it’s so good! The tiny desk of Geoff Mcfetridge’s daughter is too cute, can’t stop looking at the woman from Arts & Science’s home featured in here, Philip Crangi’s place is awesome, and there’s so much more! Going to have to track down the newest issue now that I’m hooked. Thanks Lauren!

La Rentrée

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010



Love this behind the scenes video of Proenza Schouler’s Fall campaign, reminds me of back to school campaigns in the 80’s but in the best possible way. Much more compelling than the ads themselves. Love the music by Washed Out too!

It’s been that kind of week (see first photo), I’ve been both sick, frustrated and busy. I love the photographs of this super cute kid in this book by artist Kotori Kawashima. Kawashima’s daughter has an amazingly expressive face.

I’ve been very excited to see what Damir Doma would come up with for his newest venture creating a womenswear collection. Since I first saw his line a couple years ago at B store in London, I’ve been longing for more that I could wear from him. This new line is best described in his own words “Purity, simplicity and elegance” for a woman with a “proud and noble personality, someone very pure and elegant” via Another Mag

For A magazine’s issue curated by Olivier Theyskens, Karl Lagerfeld shot this dark and very David Hamilton-esque Through the Looking Glass story filled with incredible vintage dresses oddly enough from an annonymous source?

This Yves Saint Laurent coloring book came out around the same time as the YSL exhibit at the Petit Palais, which was so good! The book contains 37 pages of his fashion sketches to color in. I found this pocket sized bilingual version to send to my niece.

Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin have an exhibition of their work at Foam museum in Amsterdamn right now titled Pretty Much Everything. For the exhibition they’ve put out this huge newspaper of posters of some of their work in collaboration with M/M Paris. Available at 0fr. I’m very excited about this, I love the ongoing collaborative pairing of these two duos. Together they’ve produced some of the most inspiring images that for me remain timeless.

Rodarte Autumn de Wilde

Rodarte Autumn de Wilde

A while back I wrote to Rodarte and and titled the email “Like Streaming Watercolors”, because their clothes often remind me of this. Sadly I never heard back from them, perhaps because I used the word beautiful to describe their designs which I have since read they hate, which is silly, but these incredible photos of their Fall 2010 collection by Autumn de Wilde reinforce this association for me. For me no one makes their clothes look better.
