When I lived in Spain, I used to love doing laundry for the sole reason of getting to hang my clothes out to dry. Although it took awhile to get used to how differently clothes felt after being air dried, there was something undeniably romantic about it. This project named Intimacy under the Wires first started in Tel Aviv’s Jaffa neighborhood and has since been an ongoing project bringing Israeli photographer Sivan Askayo to Madrid, Barcelona, London, Florence, Venice, and Buenos Aires. I absolutely adore how these images capture the fluidity and movement of the clothes in the wind.
Just a few of our favorite things for the free spirited – the ones who can truly appreciate a colorful woven bag, ethnic slippers, vintage sunglasses, and of course, a fabulous kissing bench!

Inspired by Indian maharajas and Charley Harper‘s illustrations, Jason Wu turned out the most classic and regal collection for pre-fall. The hand knotted sweaters, leather and sequined collars, color block trousers (need), houndstooth paneling, and tailored outerwear are so spot on, I’ll be surprised if these looks don’t get knocked off come 2012. P.S. Doesn’t this get you even more excited for Jason’s collaboration with Target next February?
