Givenchy FW2014 details
130186: Maiyet Fall 2014
Went to Thomas Pink on Post St. in San Francisco today and couldn’t stay for more than a few minutes. They’ve started blasting a high–octane artificial scent into the shop. It was so bad - as if 2 cans of Febreze were shoved up my nose. Someone at head office needs to read the WHMIS label on the carcinogenic chemical compound they’re using and leave the olfactory assault tactics to businesses like Walmart and Bed Bath & Beyond.
I felt sorry for the floor staff - there is no way for them to escape it. — at Thomas Pink.

The autumn’s stamp series begins September 8 with Tom of Finland, who is considered one of the most well-known Finnish artists around the world.

“‘Pussy Riot gave me the inspiration for my latest collection, which I called COURAGE. I designed pieces to reflect their cause.’ (l-r) Ani Alitalo at Profile Models and Pam wear looks by Pam Hogg. Designer Pam Hogg is the Blitz kid who went on to dress Ian Astbury, Siouxsie Sioux and Debbie Harry. Her catsuits are iconic and while the topic of her work may have changed from decade to decade, the spirit is always the same — one of rebellion and protest.” Paper Mag, England + Eccentricity = Style.

“Something that is part of my personality is seeing the world slightly askew. It’s a perceptual stance. The real world is absurd sometimes, so I don’t make a conscious attempt, but because I come at it in a certain way, it seems really strange.” — John Baldessari, The Overlap Series: Street Scene and Reclining Person (with Shoes), 2000 digital photographic prints, acrylic, and crayon, mounted on Sintra.
Jean Nouvel: Triptyques: Gagosian Gallery at Davies Street, London. Wish I could see this.
