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
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.





land of lincoln

The latest in the Patina Restaurant Group's oeuvre, Lincoln, opens today in NYC!

The facade on 65th Street. Look closely: these are all names of films.

Designed by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, the looks of Lincoln from 65th Street.

The new restaurant/lawn behind Avery Fisher Hall near the reflecting pool won't be called the "Lincoln Center Hypar Restaurant" as I thought in July 2009. Although it is a hypar, the name will be more plainly spoken (written): Lincoln. And rumor has it, it's opening today! When I was at Lincoln Center for Fashion Week last week, I got a glimpse, snapped some pics, and asked a lot of questions. The menu will be continental Italian. The chef will be Jonathan Benno, formerly of Aqua, French Laundry, Daniel, Gramercy Tavern, Craft, and most recently, Per Se. Sounds great! I'd eat anything at this restaurant, just to experience the space. But since Lincoln is part of the Patina Restaurant Group, I'm pretty sure the food will be good.

And by the way, a hypar is a hyperbolic paraboloid shape. Get it? Think of it as a 3-d parallelogram with a sexy curve.

I love the angles

under the eaves

The reflecting pond

Very steep steps to get up to the lawn. I wore heels. Tricky terrain.

The lawn is so lovely! And the smell of real grass is like heaven to a New Yorker.
Real grass!

And look at the views!

This is one heck of a lawn.
