INSPIRED BY… | OSCAR BEST ACTOR NOMINEES 2012

oscarheader

 The Oscars are that event everyone loves to hate. Despite this, I still have a soft spot for them. Call me old fashioned, but if you strip away all the hype, Joan rivers pre-shows, and gratuitous Brangelina close-ups, the Academy Awards are still the most sincere way America can celebrate one of our most beloved, … Continue reading

BKLYN DRY GOODS x MICHAEL MACKO AT MRKET

BKDrygoodsxMacko-28

As two weeks of tradeshow coverage come to a close, I wanted to end with something exceptional.  I found just that in this installation at MRket, one of the larger, more ‘old school’ tradeshows.  The installation were a collaboration between BKLYN Dry Goods, (which I recently mentioned in my 2011 round up) and the great … Continue reading

INSPIRATION | STYLITES.NET : ‘THE SARTORIALIST OF BEIJING’

Recently, I’ve become fascinated with the emergent Chinese ‘scene’, and this blog is a gem I discovered while doing some recon.  Stylites.net is the work of Nels Frye, a Bostonian in Beijing, who’s also the editor-in-Chief of China’s LifeStyle magazine and the co-founder of Sen Li and Frye, a menswear and tailoring boutique in Beijing, … Continue reading

ART | FRAMEWORK POSTERS BY MOXY CREATIVE

  Oh, Moxy Creative, will you ever let us down? Probably not and that’s ok. You might have seen my previous two posts on Moxy’s other style inspired posters, (menswear and musicians) both of which got a very nice shout out on Apartment Therapy this week.  Anyway, this latest series is as great as the … Continue reading

INSPIRATION | HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON

 Richard Avedon, 1951, (print insitu at SFMOMA exhibit) While in San Francisco last week, I woke up on Saturday to a coldish, rainy morning. So I investigated my indoor options and decided on the San Francisco Modern Art Museum, satellite to the mothership, MOMA in NYC.  I trekked over, (under a ridiculously beautiful umbrella courtesy … Continue reading

INSPIRATION | FREE & EASY, FEBRUARY 2011

Being an avid reader of Free & Easy is like marrying a Brazilian man when you don’t even speak Portuguese. You can’t understand a damn thing and probably never will, but my God it just looks so damn pretty and never fails to make the heart go pitter patter. Anyway, I purchased this one at … Continue reading

ART | ENSEMBLE: THE STYLE OF MUSIC

Illustrated style index of iconic male musicians. Cheeky graphics. Snarky commentary. I hardly need to drum this up, people. Just look at it. Just look at the Miles Davis neck scarf! The KISS Axe! The Marvin Gaye beanie! Amazing. Jesus, Moxy Creative I just got over your awesome movie posters inspired by men’s style and then this. Now … Continue reading

INSPIRATION | CLOSE UP AND PRIVATE

Yesterday, Mr. L.A.S of Sartorially Inclined blogged about this spectacular project saying, “I am compelled to mention it again – if not for the mere fact that introducing it to as many people as possible is the least I can do.” I was one of those people and now I’m paying the sentiment forward because things … Continue reading

INSPIRATION | ETRO "THE COOKED SHIRT"

Count on the Italians to find any excuse to inject food into fashion. In this interactive booklet, which I found buried deep in etro.com, Kean Etro illustrates how to inflict some DIY distress on a crisp white dress shirt using coffee, blueberries and salt. I’m not even sure when this came out but I just … Continue reading
