In the large city of Taichung, Taiwan, what was once known as a military dependents’ village is now called the Rainbow Village. 86-year-old Haung Yung-Fu has covered every square inch of wall space in colorful paintings. The buildings were slated to be torn down but the mayor has promised to preserve this amazing man’s labor of love. I don’t know about you, but I must see this for myself!
Honestly, I’m kinda crazy about every element that makes up this ensemble, spotted on Shini Park of Park & Cube – plaid on plaid, clutch on bag, red on fuchsia, and layer on layer. The best part, however, is the plaid shirt buttoned up to the top and tied around the right side of the waist. Over a sick skull skirt. Fabulous.

I stumbled upon these refreshingly handsome and functional color block satchels at Treasure & Bond yesterday while shopping in SoHo. And as much as we love The Cambridge Satchel Company, perhaps their bags have jumped the shark since being spotted… everywhere. Regardless, these satchels from Seventy Eight Percent are beautifully hand crafted from wax coated cotton and Italian leather.
