This personal project, by Montreal-based artist Aaron Kaufman, explores composition, color, form and distortion with digitally created landscapes. No Man’s Land? Honestly wishing it was real land . . .
Inspired by saddle making techniques she picked up during her time in Peru, Andria Crescioni has made her mark in the accessories industry with her leather stitched structural jewelry. We can’t get enough of the new forms and silhouettes for spring and are crushing even harder on the simple, bold brass pieces that look like they’ve been eroded by the sea. Simply beautiful.
There’s nothing more infuriating than noticing an accidental scuff on your favorite, far-too-new pair of shoes. The first one is always the worst and then you sadly start to concede to the beatings and bruises your shoes continue to take on thereafter. Honestly, ugh. So when Cristina Palomo-Nelson and Megan Papay, the designing duo behind FRĒDA SALVADOR, hit me up for a DIY date to Jackson Pollock our shoes, I said yes, yes . . . YES! Who knew a pair of leather shoes could take so well to the most basic acrylic paint? New or old, I’m absolutely in love with splattering a pair of sneakers, loafers and oxfords with paint. Old shoes are new again. And new shoes are unique and ridiculously cool. Thank you, Cris and Megan!
Toms founder Blake Mycoskie’s Topanga Canyon home is a trove of all the worldly treasures he and his wife have collected over the years. A Balinese desk is the centerpiece of Blake’s office, a Cameroonian drop cloth tops the couple’s four poster bed and reclaimed wood from Coney Island’s boardwalk cover the floors of the the home’s entryway. Unique touches like a Noah’s Ark inspired bookshelf in their son’s nursery and a Native American–themed ceiling, painted by Mark James Yamamoto, in the den make this rustic residence truly exceptional.
Alright fellow Libras, who’s else is loving this vintage pair of flared jeans? Each leg has been hand painted with Libra scales, floral motifs and very groovy designs. If you’re a size 26 and lucky enough to be born between September 24th to October 23th, these one of kind stunners are for you!
