Maybe it was my last blog post that made me a tad nostalgic... but this just makes me cry with happiness! Used to be my absolute favorite book... I can't wait to see this come to life. And with Arcade Fire in the background? Tears. Seriously, tears.
What is a Google pillow, you ask? The top searches from 2008 are commemorated on these fun little feather pillows.
Makes me wonder what the top search for 2009 will be. Recession? AIG? Robert Pattinson?
In the interview she speaks of her fashion influences Karl Lagerfeld and Marc Jacobs for LV. Acting career? Maybe. Singer? If Pharell is involved. Fashionista? For life.

The most compelling aspects of M-F are the multi-faceted (and multi-colored) slanted roof structure and outer shell. Designed by Willy Muller Architects, the market was inspired by an aerial view of flower fields in full bloom.
Hopefully these will be blogged about in the near future...

March 30th-May 2nd: The Selby is in your Place exhibition by Todd Selby. Through the lens of the photographer, the Selby portraits various people in their intimate interiors.
Watercolors, videos installations, small photographs and large-size panoramic portraits will be displayed throughout the boutique and gallery on rue Saint-Honoré. For the colette show, Todd embarked on an eight-day marathon journey in Paris, photographing twenty people in just over a week time, including artist Xavier Veilhan, pastry chef Pierre Hermé, shoe designer Christian Louboutin, interior architect Jacques Grange, as well as Lanvin Homme’s Lucas Ossendrijver.
The show will include photos from these Parisian shoots as well as from his archive of material from Los Angeles, New York, Mexico and London.

Roche Bobois have released a few photos of their 2009 spring/summer furnishings collection.
The new collection will be out in full display at the upcoming Milan Furniture Fair... Just a little jealous that I can't be in attendance.
I'm a really big fan of this seasons color schemes - mostly white with vibrant splashes of color (the purple and pink touches are my fav); It's clean, classy, and fun without the tacky.

According to the New York Police Department, Collins, 26, remembered by Runway fans for her brash manner and 1940s style, was charged with two counts of assault, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment after potentially striking a male in the head and face with a computer.
According to earlier reports from TMZ.com, the reality star allegedly attacked her sleeping ex-fiancé with her pet cat, water, several apples and the laptop. The Web site also reports that Collins is currently being held in jail.
Ugh, I still love her though!

Norwegian designer Bjørg delivers her latest collection with stunning imagery. Traveling the world and living in India for three years influenced her latest eclectic pieces, completely unique in style: raw, innovative yet elegant and totally wearable. Mixing a contrast of metals and precious stones in an industrial style, Bjørg often uses animal motifs and poetic text engraved into the pendants and inscribed onto the rings. The pieces have a rare yet familiar feel – like discovering in your Grandma’s attic a rare gem that has a contemporary twist
She's looking fabber than ever in Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Tribute Graffiti Leggings, Christian Louboutin Peep Toe Pumps, Miu Miu sequened bomber jacket, Bijules Nail Rings, and her very own House of Harlow antique stacked rings... hot mama.
Full gallery here.

Forget about the mediocre attempt to create wearable fashion for the measly Target folk (myself included). Alexander McQueen brings his true art to Paris fashion week and reminds everyone why he is a high fashion designer... the F/W 09 collection was absolutely, insanely, mind shatteringly, brilliant in all its excess.

The Eye of the Artist: The Work of Devorah Sperber
Brooklyn, NY, January 26- May 6, 2007
New York artist, Devorah Sperber deconstructs familiar masterpieces to address the way the brain processes visual information versus the way we think we see.
Using ordinary spools of thread, Sperber creates pixelated, inverted images of familiar art pieces, which appear as colorful abstractions to the naked eye.
When viewed with optical devices, however, the works becomes immediately recognizable as the famous paintings.
A clear acrylic sphere, positioned in front of each work, functions like the human eye and brain.
Super widescreen and can fit in my pocket? I want. But honestly... why would someone want this when the iPhone is in existence? I mean, despite the convenient keyboard and large screen, it almost seems clunky and not very sexy. But I'd be interested to know its weight.
