This painting by Misato Suzuki is called Early Summer Rain. Honestly, I was looking through my links thinking I had run out of Pink Friday's, but then I happened upon this and all was right in the world (dramatic). I've been scarce this week, so here's to a lovely weekend. Enjoy.
Here's one for the makeup-obsessed. I've always loved Topshop's makeup packaging. It's downright iconic at this point. So I was happy to stumble upon its designer, Sarah Thorne's portfolio recently. And guess what? All her other work? Pretty much spot on. I am officially a fan. Some favorites (including Topshop) below:
I did a NYFW-related Pink Friday last week, and here we go again. I should have waited for London. This filmy pink dress from Christopher Kane's most recent collection features appliqués that have seemingly been attached using random pieces of black electrical tape. It's all deliberate, of course. And that isn't tape either. But that's the point, isn't it? The charm is in the juxtaposition.
Studio Lin has been responsible for designer fashion label, United Bamboo's cat campaign for a couple years now. And I suppose because "put a cat on it" is the new "put a bird on it" (and I'm actually serious), these felines really do make the perfect spokespersons.
Le it be known that I am easily entertained by charming animal illustrations. I know that's seems really specific, but it's true. Now please check out these works by Franco Matticchio whilst I wipe a tear from my happy eyes. (via 50 Watts)
So New York Fashion Week came to a close recently, and while there were many things that caught my eye (I'm looking at you, Thakoon), surprisingly, for a a spring season, nearly none of my favorites were pink. But these few pieces from Thakoon Addition and J.Crew sure were pretty spiffy, not to mention wearable. That striped cardi/shrug thing needs to be in my life.
These photographs by Frederic Fontenoy are of blood and milk mixing together. Yep. It actually makes a whole lot of sense when you think about the differing consistencies of those two fluids: one sticky and slightly coagulated, the other considerably less so. They duel together nicely, taking turns giving way, their colors blending so beautifully, or not blending at all. And for the record (oh, you better believe I checked), yes, blood is thicker than milk.
certain birds, you'll understand the fascination here. It's so easy to get dark when there are wings involved, and you really see that in this photography series, Pigeons by Imke Klee. Did you know pigeons came in this many gorgeous colors? I sure didn't. Seriously though, check out the full set.
Things have a way of crossing over with all the little quasi-blogs (Tumblr, Pinterest) I've taken on in addition to this place. But what you notice is that you always tend to like the same things. You like what you like. And right now, I love this color palette. Spotted on Pinterest, and good ole' Tumblah.

collection from Giambattista Valli is so stunning, it's giving me "Erdem-on-steroids" vibes. And that dress goes so well with this painting by Chicago-based artist, Rachel Niffenegger. A cascade of messy blooms is always a good way to go.
