always loved jean toutou’s tone. this one from the apc journal is great, my favorite is “art is for mobster”, but i have to say that “fashion is for losers” don’t make sense out of his mouth, feels a little phony, isn’t it? even if this is true… by pp.
saw this box on nice french blog djgm and found it really cool. this is a nice coffret edited by vuitton, there is 30 postcards in there, all die-cute and nicely printed as the old hotels labels from around the world. the box is made out of a re-edition of the 30’s lv print. really calling off a certain era and it’s style. love when fashion brands do things that are not just so irrelevant. by djgm + pp.

some sharp comment about chris cunningham and his ability to mold your emotions with visuals, sound and time isn’t necessary for this post. it’s a haunting piece. and if you’ve ever lived in new york i know it will push a button somewhere. by kl
amazing article by alice rawsthorn in the new york times about le corbusier’s wall colors, must read here, a couple of lines for lazies:
was looking for damn bed, a place to crash that is, no particular reason other than that my over indulgent sister was at my place when i was away, and she told me that my mattress is more of torture chamber than a bed. so i figured might as well get a nice one. i came across this hastens bed (store in soho), can you believe this, the queen beds (mattress only) starts at $7,500 and goes up to $70,000!! no swedes included. that said one night sleep in it and you are in heaven. each bed comes with approximately 7 horses worth of horse hair. i guess that keeps it breathable and maybe even sexy if you happen to be steven klein. for me its simply dreamy. now if you happen to be gorgeous you are welcome to come over an try it. we can give the godfather clip a whole new meaning! by uh
