I first discovered and fell in love with Hoss Intropia while living in Spain. Season after season, the collections have epitomized incredible romance and femininity. It’s no wonder that the designer behind it all, Paloma Vázquez de Castro, was a former costume designer for the National Ballet of Spain. Inspired by her former profession, Diego Velàzquez, and folk art, Paloma has turned out another youthful and elegant collection for spring. By the way, doesn’t the stunning look book remind you of images from Kolmanskop?
After seven years of painting 30 van portraits, Artist Kevin Cyr will be having a solo exhibition at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City from May 19 through June 16, 2012. Inspired by vintage vans spotted throughout Brooklyn and Queens, Kevin is especially partial to derelict Chevys and dinged up Fords from the 70s. The more character the van has, the more fun it is to paint!
I recently spotted a sensational bouquet of paper flowers inside my favorite (and the ultimate) boutique for creative inspiration, Castles In The Air. A combination of Mexican paper flowers and those ever so popular tissue paper pom poms, these vibrant and cheerful flowers make perfect ornaments for any celebration. Plus, they’re incredibly easy to make!
How would you like to spend a day in this pod-shaped treehouse, built 33 feet high in a tall redwood, near Auckland, New Zealand?! Designed by Pacific Environments Architects, the treehouse was originally constructed as part of a marketing campaign for a local company and operated as a full service restaurant. Though it is no longer taking dining reservations, the award-winning treehouse is now available as a venue for private events. Honestly, magical!
We’re honestly obsessed with Plukka‘s Razor Mitten collection. Their rhodium and 18k rose gold rings are adorned with tiny white sapphires and diamonds – but precious only goes so far. These knuckle busters are razor sharp and wonderfully sinister! This week, Plukka is giving away one of these weapon-like rings as part of their Facebook contest right this way . . .
