these things are making life grand...
1. STYLE: Renee Perle
A Romanian Jewish girl who moved to Paris, Perle became a muse to famous photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue after meeting him in 1929.
Arms full of bangles, casual t-shirts, smokey eyes...she was decades ahead of her time. A true style icon.
2. IMAGES: David Maisel
Maisel’s spectacular large-scale aerial photographs show the physical impact on the land from mining, logging, water reclamation, and military testing. The world looks different from up here...
3. FILM: The Five Obstructions (2003)
Based entirely around the reconstruction of Jorgen Leth's incredible 1967 short masterpiece, The Perfect Human, this is one of the funniest documentaries i have ever seen. It is pretentious, obnoxious and full of cheek.
leth is a truly elegant man and von trier, a master...
(Many thanks to my one and only x)
4. ACTIVITY: Origami
When inundated with work, there is no better form of procrastination.
5. OBJECT: Clutch by Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton
I am not a big-name-brand lover, but something about this clutch speaks to me. In fact it yells, very very loudly.
6. GOOD COMPANY: Steven Spielberg, Andy Warhol + Bianca Jagger.
i have no words for how fantastic this scene is.
does Spielberg appear to be buzzing off more than just a dose of good conversation?
7. SOUND: boy bands.
these boys have been making life truly swell:
- department of eagles
- the walkmen
- black starr
- abe vigoda
- white rabbits
- cave singers
- the roots
- black keys
- french kicks
