Alexander Wang Does Marble Surfboards.

These Alexander Wang surfboards are, like, the coolest things ever. I always wonder, do we love or hate when things that are on the outskirts are appropriated by high fashion and then come into the mainstream. Like for example, how to the real actual granola people feel about Birkenstocks being sold at Barney's? Do they not care at all, do they hate it - a la bitch stole my look, or do they … [Read more...]

The Passion of Kim Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian is the "the patron saint of pop culture," says New York City-based graphic designer and artist Hannah Kunkle. Her recent series The Passion of Kim Kardashian depicts Kim in a series of psychedelic portraits as religious icons : Jesus, Joan of Arc, Aphrodite. (As I'm writing this, I'm actually surprised that my spell checker doesn't recognize Kardashian, so maybe the artist has a … [Read more...]

Dudes, I was just clicking through Barney's home section when writing the last post, and I stumbled upon Sarah Lavoine's new collection. I've posted her place before. It's a Cool Girl apartment. I love her collection of organically shaped mirrors. And also, everything else in the photos below. Preppy, but still fun! “Nothing is more depressing than a blank wall,”  she says. Tru dat.  … [Read more...]

Right before I left Manhattan for the summer, I snuck in a little photo shoot with my friend designer Ilene Wetson and her client Katie. Katie is a single mom living in a three bedroom on the UES. Her home is warm and comfortable, and something that she and Ilene put together over late night phone sessions and emails. Ilene had been Katie's designer years earlier, when Katie designed her home with … [Read more...]

Ok, so last week, the super special post was the amazing Time Capsule Interior, and this week, we are looking at an actual time capsule. My father in law is the next Vivian Maier.  He has been sitting on 30,000 family photos, in slides, taken over the past 50 years. Last year he decided to have them all digitized. My niece was in between college and work and she began to organize them, sending the … [Read more...]

DESIGN | Poppy’s Un-Nursery.

Can I be reborn as Shannon Wollack's kid? Please? Slim Aarons prints! Campaign furniture, hot pink grasscloth, and literally her NAME IN LIGHTS?!? Too cool for school. I love the idea that a nursery doesn't have to be overly cutesy. I think this room is so girly, fab and fun! This, plus Christine's son's nursery are probably my two favorites ever. (I also love this one, I shot it YEARS ago before … [Read more...]
