there is nothing like seeing a great handbag in action.

have you ever noticed the similarity between nyc fire call boxes and benevolent Kannon, goddess of mercy?
every design, fashion and art magazine I read lately features some important directional artist making big contributions to their genre. and where do they live? brooklyn!
who says there are no more 'new ideas' in art and design? the newness is in the juxtaposition.
this is how I really get things done. with my little green co-worker/task-master.
clothing & accessories design
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!

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.

Yes I am sure you want to know all about the In Good Company
Holiday Sale last night, which perfectly coincided with the snow storm, which in NYC, was really just an icy rain, and then a rainy rain, and then no rain at all by the time the show was over, thankfully for the cab situation on the way home. I was dreading waiting in the pouring rain with all my merchandise trying to hail a cab. But it all worked out, and I had a really great time showing my new designs at the Holiday Sale. Amy and Adelaide of In Good Company
are two amazing people. I feel really lucky and happy to know them. If you knew them, you would agree.
By some amazing stroke of luck, I got to show in my own private room. After I set up, I didn't really ever want to leave. It was like my own little boutique. Pretty fab. I wish you could have been there. Here are a few pictures to give you the flavor. As for the shopping part, you can go to my Website. Some of the new designs are up on elaineperlov.com
already, with more to come!
