A bit of brain stimulation by way of brilliant three dimensional street art . . .
Piamita was founded by three friends, including an editor at W Magazine and a jewelry designer, and was born out of the desire for a chic alternative for traditional loungewear. Borrowing shapes from conventional lingerie and sleepwear sets, their resort collection is filled with elegantly tailored silk blouses, pants, shorts, and dresses. I’m personally obessesed with the origami printed pajama-style pants with contrast piping and my favorite part – a gathered elastic waistband!
Craftsman Nick Kenny converted a run-down Victorian corrugated-iron chapel in Faversham, on the Kent coast of England, into a home. Using only recycled and salvaged materials, Nick had to be extremely resourceful – especially in the bathroom, where it was eventually fitted with a reclaimed sink and a shower made from old boiler room parts. One of my favorite things about a project like this is that it can never be re-created as it’s completely unique to its space.
We’re completely blown away by Pakayla Biehn‘s paintings derived from double exposure photography. The San Francisco-based artist collaborates with several photographers, produces double exposure photographs as inspiration, and then paints the images using oil on canvas in the most realistic, detailed, and ethereal way. Honestly impressive and incredibly beautiful . . .
Happy New Year!!! See you all in 2012 . . .
