creepy kids

Dina Lynnk is a Ukrainian fashion designer’s assistant who can’t sit still in her seat. As far as I can tell, in her series Creepy Kids, she did wardrobe, art direction, concepting, collage and post production. The net result is pretty damn close to the title. Kids looking creepy. Can’t take my eyes off it.

Poetic Jewelry: Giulia Ruffatti

Giulia Ruffatti is an Italian artist creating pieces of wearable history, or more simply, jewelry about you. If you have a certain memory, passion, dream or identifiable trait, Ruffatti (with the help of several people now that her business has grown) will select and create a variety of bobbles, creatures, symbols and materials to create a necklace, bracelet or even a compass to represent her customer. Oh, and she’ll pair each piece with an original poem that further describes you, the wearer.

On the surface, if I hadn’t seen the actual pieces, this description alone might make me cringe and think of patchouli. That may just be because I’m a fairly cynical, judgemental beotch. However, I’m also incredibly self-absorbed and the idea that someone could make a piece of loudly over-sized jewelry that would describe my deepest desires and nightmares for all to see around my neck – well that made me look.

Poler. Gear for people.

When a company that you believe in comes out with a bunch of cool shit, it’s a good day.

Poler is just that.
In their own words:

POLER makes sleeping bags, tents, and bags that don’t require hundreds of buckles, shiny plastic do-dads everywhere, and enough velcro to choke a camel. Poler Camping Stuff is simple, good looking gear for people that are travelers, couch surfers, regular surfers, skateboarders, snowboarders, parents, kids, car campers and anyone else looking for something that looks good is a good value and is all about having fun on the road and in the outdoors.


AND! Now they sell their rad shirts.

Happy Monday  friends. Read the rest of this entry »

There’s a lot going on over at cityfabric these days. You guys may remember when I posted about them back in November. Well, now they have a new logo and an awesome new kickstarter project with lots of new collateral—if they raise $13,000 by August 31, you will be able to get their signature figureground maps on pillows, totes, canvases, prints and limited edition t-shirts. Watch the video above to learn more about their project and support your local business!

Roy’s Jeans

An inspiring video from Self Edge that highlights the whole process of Roy’s Jeans from start to finish as it’s done through the hands of Roy Slaper. There’s something so cool and magical about seeing fabric going through multiple machines that look like utter finger death traps with such ease and craft. I love seeing the raw denim transform into shapes and those shapes come together as jeans.  Roy’s attention to detail and handcrafted quality helps make the price tag of  $275 a pair, slightly more digestible. Key word there being “Slightly”.

According to their website, “Darkroom is a new concept on Lamb’s Conduit Street, London WC1. We curate an eclectic mix of high-end fashion, interior and lifestyle accessories alongside bi-monthly art and sculpture exhibitions.”

Ummmm, love that. I really am enjoying the curated shopping experiences that seem to be a rising trend. The world just keeps on inventing new dream jobs, eh? Sure it’s in London, but we yankees can thank baby jesus for FedEx and e-commerce.

See my top picks after the jump. All items are on my Xmas list this year. It’s never too late to buy a random blogger stranger a gift when she drops a super subtle hint. Just saying.
