Chilean artist Livia Marin’s series “Broken Things” showcases porcelain cups and bowls, cracked and distorted. And though the fractures are meant to represent fatality and loss, the spilling over of pattern and form beautifully represents care and continuation.
In her Fall 2011 collection, Charlotte Taylor has returned to the same quirky and charming prints that made her earlier work so lovable. The silk blouses, scarves, dresses, and wallpaper in the collection are inspired by colonial Africa, Hungarian gypsys, and most obviously animals. Love!

LA based Cast of Vices is known for taking vices and turning them into pieces of tongue-in-cheek fine jewelry. Recently, they’ve launched a collection of soft leather bags inspired by iconic NYC bodega shopping bags. Awesome. These corner store bags are made in LA and currently only available at Collete.
