As part of their Fall 2011 collection, Hermès has teamed up with graffiti artist Kongo to produce several silk scarves based around his signature style. Featuring an all-over tag, the scarves are now available at Hermès, with part of the proceeds going towards graffiti collective Kosmopolis which supports young artists. Wish list. Check.
When the lovely Amanda Thomas of Luv Aj offered to show us how to DIY her signature handpiece, we were ecstatic! Not only are we huge fans of her jewelry, we’ve been dying to adorn ourselves with this ring and bracelet combination. Thank you for the awesome tutorial, Amanda! xx
This season, the best seller in the entire collection was the Polished Pyrite Handpiece. It’s simple, a tad bit edgy, and something you can actually wear all day everyday. Add some bracelets on your wrist, throw on a couple rings, and this little handpiece seems to work in every single scenario. If you DIY, or even if you don’t, it may seem too advanced to make but after my tutorial, you’ll see that it’s really not!
Remember Florentijn Hofman‘s Fat Monkey sculpture made of 10,000 flip flops? Well, the Rotterdam-based artist is at it again with his newest large-scale sculpture: an adorable, 13 meter high yellow rabbit in Örebro, Sweden. Constructed out of locally-manufactured shingles, the temporary sculpture was built for the OpenArt biennale and meant to challenge people’s perceptions towards public space.
Honestly, Lauren Moffatt’s Fall collection, aptly named You Can Take the Girl Out of the Country, is tryin’ to make me go broke. Inspired by pioneer women, the collection of classic silk floral blouses, wool coats, leather skirts, and A line dresses is just that much better with all the wonderful and distinctive Lauren Moffatt details. Obsessed!
