These hand painted kimonos by Paris Kain, of Abraxas Rex, have such an exquisite sense of movement to them. Any of these one of a kind pieces would be the perfect dancing companion at Coachella this weekend, wouldn’t you agree?
Last month, Tilda Swinton and director Apichatpong Weerasethakul curated one of the newest, and possibly the coolest, film festivals in Yao Noi, Thailand. Four days full of film screenings and workshops brought artists, actors, designers, and journalists together at Film on the Rocks. Waris Ahluwalia of House of Waris held a Batik dyeing workshop. Moviegoers were delivered by boat to a floating movie theater, made of recycled materials, to watch the original Peter Pan from 1924. I mean, honestly . . . WTF.
Erica and I are suckers for glimpses into how things are made. Especially when it involves something as esteemed as the heritage behind Loewe. It’s really special to see how the accumulated wisdom, of over 165 years, guides each pair of hands in the Loewe atelier as they hand make some of the finest bags.
