With each new series Alberto Seveso photographs, we find ourselves more mesmerized than the last. In his latest Blackground, ink plumes are photographed underwater against a black background, enhancing the colors and billowy textures.
These one of a kind Peruvian made tassels are available for pre-order, on April 16th, as part of a collaboration with Our Open Road and Urban Outfitters. I love the idea of hanging them on a wall and not only are they super affordable, they make a huge impact wherever you decide to hang them!
Scarves are a seasonless must have accessory for me and as usual, A Peace Treaty has me swooning over yet another beautiful collection of hand screen-printed scarves. Silk and modal-silk textiles are covered in brightly colored geometric patterns, making each one so visually stunning. It’s no wonder designers Farah Malik and Dana Arbib were just accepted into the CFDA’s 2014 Fashion Incubator!
The other day, I caught the tail end of the most incredible story on the radio about the secret life of Vivian Maier. A full time nanny living in Chicago in the 60s, Vivian captured over 100,000 vivid portraits of street life with her Rolleiflex. The only thing is nobody, not a single person, knew about her secret hobby and talent until after her death just a few years ago. Her work was only discovered after a real estate agent bought her storage trunk, loaded with negatives, at auction for a mere $380. Needless to say her, insightful work captured the attention of photographic masters, art experts and collectors everywhere, earning her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers. Vivian’s mysterious life story adds even more depth to her captivating, vulnerable and intimate square format photographs.
