Several years ago, I bought my very first set of 8 signature silver Iosselliani rings. Too much for one finger, I kept 5 and gave 3 to Lauren. Friendship rings! Since then, we both wear them consistently and continue to be obsessed with just about anything the designing duo behind Iosselliani create. It doesn’t get much better than unique and wearable jewels that will outlast the test of time.
Artist Wayne White, who once worked as a set designer on Pee-wee’s Playhouse and as an art director of a Smashing Pumpkins music video, paints cheeky phrases on top of kitschy traditional landscape portraits. I’m especially drawn to his work because of its humor and quirkiness – but mostly because I personally love to collect these same type of paintings and frames from thrift stores. So brilliant!
We first fell in love with Jennifer Behr‘s dinosaur headbands after seeing them on the runway at Fendi. Then, we crushed hard on this Maison Michel metal spiked hair comb spotted on Elena Perminova in Paris. Perhaps we can blame our attraction on our stegosaurus obsession (yes, this is true). Or it could simply be because these spiked hair accessories are so badass and bananas (also true). Either way, a DIY was definitely in order.
After singing her praises back in March, I still can’t get over Natsumi Hayashi‘s self-portraits and continue to be in awe of her most recent levitations. Without any aid of a rigging system or photoshop, she is able to capture the most effortless and perfect mid-air poses with just a 10-second timer and a tripod. Wouldn’t you just love to see her in action? WTF amazing.
