my clothing & accessories design
east-meets-west minimalism

my site

the look
dressy utilitarian

my concept
useful, economical, modular pieces that can be mix-matched in numerous ways (because why can't fashion be useful and lasting? I think it can!) So I say Maximize your Minimalism!

more press...

furniture (especially chairs from the 50s and 60s), uniforms, repeating patterns, menswear, Oscar Niemeyer, traditional Japanese architecture, the Rimpa School and Ogata Korin's 8-Point Bridge, Matisse, bromeliads, succulents and other waxy flora

particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

magazines of current interest
Domino, Elle Decor (British), ARTnews, Art in America, Wallpaper

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.





website frustration

If you cannot see a photo in the header above, that pretty much means that my website is down again, as that photo and certain photos along the left margin are stored on my website,If you are trying to access our Website, elaineperlov.com, right now, you may read one of these message:

Service Unavailable


Server not found

Our e-mail has been intermittent too, so the best way to inquire about products for now, until the problem is fixed by our Web host, MDS-HOST, will be to write to me in the comments section of this blog, or call us directly.

I wanted to let you know that I am fully aware of these problems. I have opened many trouble tickets with them in the past 3 days, and the issues remain unsolved. I finally spoke with a person on the phone last night who did not simply close the ticket and tell me everything was fine, but was going to attempt to get the bottom of these matters.

I just opened a new trouble ticket this morning at 7:55. Let's see how long they take to fix the problem or even respond. I will start looking for a new Web host early next week.

If you would like to let MDS-HOST know that my website is down, please click Live Support Chat and let them know. Thanks. I hope we get this solved today.


UPDATE: The website was back up and fully functioning at 8:26am, only to be down again in by 10am, where it remains down as of 11:19. I have received no response from them, as my email is down too. They have not called me to answer any of my questions either.
