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!

inspiration
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.

bussbuss feature today!

I randomly clicked on BussBuss today to see what was new, and I found my own design featured. How cool!!! BussBuss is featuring my Bamboo Cowl Top in a piece called Spring Trends: 15 Key Spring Pieces, 7 Fabulous Looks. According to BussBuss, you can wear the Bamboo Cowl while Running Errands, spending A Day at the Museum, and having Cocktails with Mr. Right. Yes, I agree. The Bamboo Cowl Top would work for all those outings.

BussBuss editor and style expert Kelly Lee shares the top trends for spring and shows us how to mix and match 15 key pieces for 7 fabulous looks that will take you from the office to cocktails and beyond. Best of all, all pieces can be bought online in a click - no traipsing through the stores required.

Spring's Top Fashion Trends:
1. Ruffles, Tiers and Pleats
2. Arty Floral and Graphic Prints
3. Canary Yellow
4. Metallics and Shine
5. Non-Leather, Oversized Bags
6. Pastels, Nudes and Blush Hues
7. Grey Matter
8. Luxe Trench Coats
9. Hot Pink
10. Statement Necklaces


If you like the top, you can shop the Bamboo Cowl here. This item is in stock and ready to ship. Tell your friends!

Congrats! That is a great design! I've been reading your blog for nearly a year now - found it after googling some piece of furniture at Conran. Anyway, awesome to see you get some more recognition. You have a great aesthetic. - Nicki
