I love this AnOther Magazine article on famous couple collaborations featuring: Marina Abramovic and Ulay, Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock and more who “collaborated professionally at some point in their relationship, often with extraordinary results.”
Here’s a little video I made to post on Instagram for Valentine’s Day. I’m late in sharing it here. But really, is it ever too late to share some love?
I’ve mentioned Worn Stories here and possibly to everyone I know. It’s a favorite book I’ve picked up in the last 6 months. So when I saw this story on The Cut, it lured me right in.
Six Women Tell Their Life Story Through the Story of Their Jewelry. To me, these stories have so little to do with the aesthetics or fashion of an item but rather the personal and historical significance of an object imbued with meaning. Think of how many things in our lives we ascribe meaning to. If you had to leave your home forever in the next 5 minutes think about what you would grab and what it means to you. Would anyone else think it’s important or is it only important because of the role it plays in your life or events that took place in your life that the object reminds you of?
There’s something ever so chic about jackets and coats. I think it’s the way they pull everything together and make a uniformity, a clean line, a center of focus.
I’m personally a big fan of the blazer. I like to wear one with jeans or trousers. It kind of just polishes off any look.
Here are a few icons I’ve pinned to my Crush board who always seemed effortlessly chic. Or maybe it was just the coats doing the work?
Last Thursday I paired up for a live-painting event, with the wonderful designlovefest, to help bring Vidal Sassoon’s Salonist #workofart brand to life. I illustrated hair portraits for editors at the P&G multi-brand promo event. It was really fun to paint all afternoon in a booth adorned with my illustrations. Here are some snaps from the event.
