We’re loving Free People‘s January catalog, shot by Guy Aroch in bike friendly Amsterdam and featuring their newest collection of artisan bike accessories. Starting this month, they will carry limited edition items including hand-tooled and painted bike seats, crochet skirt guards, embossed handlebar grips, hand-painted wooden bike stands, and wine bottle holders. I mean, how adorable is that tricked out tandem!?
Several weeks ago, while in New York, Lauren and I spent the afternoon with the ingenious and affable Lisa Salzer at her Lulu Frost headquarters. We both have been fans of the brand since the launch of her iconic Plaza collection, so it was an absolute treat delving into Lisa’s world of vintage inspired baubles and costume jewelry. After previewing Lulu Frost and George Frost‘s upcoming collections, drooling over a stunning array of one-of-a-kind pieces, watching an impending J.Crew collaboration come to life, sifting through an extensive collection of antique jewelry and found objects, and gazing upon her awe-inspiring mood board, it was clear that Lisa’s passion for her business and craft is in a class of its own.
Can you believe that these portraits of the London Underground, Piccadilly Circus, Hampstead Heath and Camden Town are constructed entirely of denim?! Sweden-based British artist Ian Berry, aka Denimu, cuts old denim into precise shapes and pieces before meticulously gluing them all together. Using bleach and colored denim, he’s able to experiment with shading and color. Jean-ius.
