We got to visit our friends at Bloom yesterday & preview all of their new items! We love the new Retro Crib and Dresser, 100% hardwood, available all in white or in walnut. They'll be on the floor soon to see in person.
I'm an avid subway rider - it's the easiest way to get around this city (and I don't totally understand the bus system). When I read in NY Mag about one intrepid creative's (none other than LCD Soundstystem's former frontman, James Murphy) concept of adding some music to the turnstile, I got excited. I remember seeing the piano stairs in the past and other such concepts, and love the idea of bringing a little fun and something unexpected to a rote ride uptown. Like wind chimes for people...Come on MTA, lighten up & let the music play! Read about James Murphy & the musical subway in NY Mag.
Anarchy has left the U.K. and it's relocated to Philly. The Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia shows off a collection of punk era artwork and ephemera, celebrating the rage against the machine, safety pins, combat boots, studs and grommets that symbolized the period. "Pretty Vacant, The Graphic Language of Punk" brings together works by Peter Saville, Gee Vaucher and more collected by Andrew Krivine, on view until March 15. Via Huffington
A moment of distraction, an instant with my eyes elsewhere and my beautiful sofa had become an impromptu art project for my two girls. Sheer horror. I quickly looked up every chemical compound known to man, additional covers, and anything else to cover up this call to creativity. (Lesson: Never take your eyes off a 2 year old!). Now, years later, I've come across (albeit and old article) from the New York Times of a mother who decided to embrace the chaos and celebrate it in her house. And, it works! Check it out!
We're mad about the new Munster Kids collection that has just hit the store. It's always an amazing brand for boys, and we thought we'd remix up a few outfits for vacation time! Here's our fave gold tooth tee with the pineapple skull board shorts and a floral skull hat. Sort of a Rocking the Tropix ensemble….1. Gold Cap Tooth tee, $362. Pineapple Skull board shorts, $563. Floral hat, $20
Ever since being wowed by the Campana brothers from Brazil, have I been looking longingly at the old toys that have piled up over the years. Here are some inventive solutions for the surplus after they have been played into the ground!
We love the new Mini Rodini collection - and the giraffe print is totally off the hook. If you're not going away for the school holiday right now, we've remixed an ensemble that will have you dreaming of Africa!
