3 A.M. Secret
I secretly fear that people hate the sound of my voice, but are just humoring me.
Vincent & Vincent: Collection One
Releasing their first collection just this March, Vincent & Vincent is a new leather outerwear company hailing from Australia. They know what the classic cuts are and, to their credit, they don’t try fucking around with them too much. The rider’s jacket and bomber are my personal favorites (especially since they look like less intense...
Two People Inside of a Place Where Many People...
They avoided looking at each other the entire time. They sat a few inches further apart than they normally did. They exchanged a series of swallowed coughs and twitching lips. They prayed patiently, expectantly into the ear of a deaf god for some words of wisdom from his mute lips before the sight of his blind eyes.
Things I Notice on the Bus Ride Home #5
I can eat a hell of a lot of food for a dude my size. Kinda scary, actually.
Rick and Nick, Sitting in a Tree
F-A-S-H-I-N-G. Rick doesn’t do publicity. But he sure as hell does interviews and photoshoots. It’s not that Rick is shameless – it’s more that in the aesthetic microcosm of Rick Owens, there’s no room for shame. You are a man, you wear what a man wants to wear, and you come across as a man; even if that means draping a wool/silk cape around your head and...

Connie: either whisper them
Connie: or keep them to yourselves and try to telepath the statements to the person's head
Connie: because they might hear and they might get freaked out

Kazuo Ohno - "My Mother"
Even at the age of 91, Kazuo Ohno was constantly trying to redefine what was possible within the realm of dance. I’m no expert on dance by any measure, but it’s hard to watch Ohno without being impressed by the level of physical commitment he gave his performances. In the final movement, having been showered by a rain of flowers and gifts, Ohno ebulliently offers himself up to his...
In just six minutes, Jacek Utko explains what makes award-winning design. But the real twist here is that Utko designs not for international identity agencies, huge marketing firms, or just another Web 2.0 start-up; he focuses solely on newspapers. In a smart examination of how design, function, and revenue intersect in an industry besieged on those three very fronts, Utko proves the value of...
Things I Notice on the Bus Ride Home #4
Modernity makes it possible that anything can be art. But it also means that hardly anything ever is.
I had known about Koi Suwannagate’s work for a while, but had never had a chance to really investigate. But after her Spring 2009 collection arrived at August, I had to take another look. Suwannagate’s always been known for the delicacy in her work, but when you really deconstruct it, the pieces really make you consider what it really means to design with a feminine sensibility...
