Public installation artist and urban planner Candy Chang converted a wall of an abandoned home in her New Orleans neighborhood into something inspiring. With chalkboard paint, stencils and some chalk, residents can now write their dreams on this wall. “It’s about turning a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us.” I would write: Before I die I want to…be a grandmother for a very long time! What would you write?
Canadian twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten’s Fall collection is straight from the Wild West. I can feel the True Grit inspiration and I like it. The 20-gallon hats were by far my favorites, next to the leather duster coats and neckties.

If you loved Maia Flore’s Sleep Elevations you just might fall in love with Natsumi‘s photo blog documenting her daily levitations. The images are so fun to look at and you can’t help but wonder how she executes them so flawlessly (and adorably)! Honestly, WTF brilliant!
Silvia Venturini Fendi described the inspiration for her and Karl’s Fall collection as a buttoned-up-to-the-neck art teacher who is still wild enough to wipe paintbrushes through her hair and unleash the animal within. Honestly?! Not only do I absolutely adore that imagery, I’m crazy about mix of rich blues, mustard, and brick, the ribbed leggings, the oversized ruffles, the tri-colored fur, and the amazing Stegosaurus-esque headbands designed by Jennifer Behr.
