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!

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

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.





when it comes to pizza, brooklyn is truly heaven

Fresh from the oven. But wait until you see the oven! Scroll down.

I mean, where can you find a beehive oven in a street fair turning out fluffy clouds of heaven (that would be the pizza), like this? Only Brooklyn. I am so happy to live here.

I neglected to photograph the menu and get the name of this place, but apparently it is Lunetta, although they show no pizza on the menu. I hope my photos will be seriously sought-after once I post this. Read Dear Slice. I like how he signs it "Hasta la pizza." I wish I had thought of that.

Photographed at the Atlantic Antic this past Sunday. Read more Atlantic Antic food buzz on Chowhound.

Look at that beautiful fire burning.

While I followed your blog with regularity before I left NYC a year ago, I especially depend on it now to remind me of the buzz of daily street life in NYC that I truly miss. I do have to give Portland, Oregon, some credit, though, as it is rivaling Brooklyn in terms of the portable wood-fired oven and amazing pizza. There's a guy who travels to all the local farmers' markets with his oven in tow and cranks out amazing pizzas... and bagels! Be still my beating heart. A little bit of NYC here in the great northwest.
I always appreciate your photos and posts. Happy weekend.
