These things are making life grand...

1.STYLE: Dries Van Noten f/w 2002

Shot by the phenomenal yelena yemchuk, I came across this campaign while researching her work. the styling and photography are absolutely incredible. i am now looking very forward to winter...

2.IMAGES: Joel Tettamanti

the work of this very talented photographer captures the beauty of different places all around the world. today i am in greenland.

3.GENUIS: Howard Gossage

dubbed 'the socrates of sanfransisco', this man was a revolutionary. though his career in advertising existed long before the internet, gossage believed strongly in the value of creative + interactive communication. 

he is remembered as having "a pungent wit, tremendously creative mind, delicious sense of humor, and most of all, an embracing love of mankind. He was a perfectionist and whatever he did was carried off with gusto and abandon. A favorite maxim of his was: If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing". 

his philosophy on the extra-environmental man is beautiful and describes the way in which all things in life should be approached. a truly fantastic human being...
(many thanks to bas and his list for enlightening me)

4.FILM: The 400 Blows

my one and only reminded me of this favourite of ours. truffaut's 1959 classic was my entry into the french new wave and i haven't looked back since...

5.FOOD: Pomegranate Juice
push through the disturbing aftertaste and you will be rewarded for your efforts.

6.OBJECT: 032c Magazine

there is nothing tastier than this piece of biannual goodness. 
how can i put into words the perfection of a magazine that features a 5 page interview with fahion prodigy steven meisel, a report on berlin's homosexual holocaust memorial and a comic strip centerfold about property development in dubai all in the one issue? 

7.SOUND: The Walkmen 'Canadian Girl'

i want a straw boater hat and a dance partner.
