For almost six years, photographer and artist Cara Berer has been taking a very unique approach to book art. She thoughtfully bends, folds and occasionally soaks old pages of discarded catalogues, outdated dictionaries, dated instruction manuals and rejected telephone books, transforming them into marvelous works of art. And don’t worry, bookworms – Cara has assured us that no important books have been injured during the making of any of her photographs.
Not only are we fans of Mr. Kate and her undeniable charisma, we’re honestly smitten with her newest collection of gilded baubles. Inspired by the medieval and the mythical, the weighty, organic pieces from the Days Of Ore set layer together so perfectly. My personal favorites are the ear cuffs – I haven’t taken mine off since it came in the mail last weekend!
The snow had already started to melt in Colorado when I and members of the Bentley team arrived for Aspen Fashion Week several weeks ago. The unusually warm weather, however, didn’t stop the action packed trip, where I got to drive a Bentley for the first time (did you know it takes over 70 hours to hand stitch the steering wheel alone?), go snowmobiling through a forest of aspen trees (pinch me), see covetable outerwear collections (snowbunny!), snowboard on one of the most stunning mountains (breathtaking), and witness a base jumper leap from a plane (WTF). And just because I fell madly in love with a magenta Continental GTC doesn’t mean I didn’t truly feel like one of the boys for the weekend . . .
