Hello Pretty

Textile swatch books from times gone by. I could spend an eternity at
this place.

Merry Christmas Honey!

Elsa Peretti's "Bone Cuff" for Tiffany. Charcoal Ruthenium.
Nailed it.

Rock Harbor / Backstage at Cap'n Cass

Backstage at Cap'n Cass' lobster shack in Cape Cod.
Epic place.
The Mothership





The motorhome that took us to Cape Cod to shoot the AW2010 campaign. I'm from Sweden, I know what a blizzard means, but this was silly.
Blizzard, Burgers, doesn't matter, everything's bigger in the States.
The driver was this 400 pound dude, "Israel from Israel".
I don't think he'd ever seen snow before.
He was laughing the whole time driving, especially when he overtook the plowtrucks ahead of us..
Me? I saw my life pass before my eyes, thinking I would never see my kids again, or have a Porkslap for that matter.

Arctic Monkeys are out, ARCTIC FOXES are in!









Today Swedish outdoor pioneer Fjallraven (Arctic Fox) opens up their first ever store in the US.
Classic stuff, don't miss it!
I met Andrea & Co the other day in NYC, have high hopes to get some Gant Rugger shirts in there as well!
Mott street is now officially as hot as the enchiladas at Café Habana around the corner.

I used to carry my books to school in their classic "Kånken" rucksack 1979-82.
1982 I did what everybody else did where I grew up in Stockholm, changed to a (fucking ugly) Salomon backpack.
Kånken was all of a sudden concidered to be the "commie" backpack and all of a sudden we started picking on anyone with a "kånken".

Conclusion?
Kids are mean little bastards, and, they have no clue what so ever about aesthetics, that's for sure.

Go Fjällräven, and good luck!!

Billy Kirk offices..I think I want to live there.
Picture (not very surprisingly) from www.acontinuouslean.com.


"Big Document" by Saul Steinberg. Just a lot of fake signs, seals and mumbo jumbo wording. Genious.





Looks like a draft of the Declaration of Indepence.
Perhaps Jefferson & Co where downing a quart of whisky and went:
"Seriously, dudes, shouldn't we like write somethin' that looks really profound? I mean we totally sidestepped those teasippin fairies and nicked the entire country. You know, just so it looks like we've put some effort behind it?
What was it you said after you got your divorce Thomas? Somthing like "Finally Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happyness",
That's fuckin genious man, write it down"

Buthcer of Blue / Cool store in Holland

Just Another NYC Window...


Compartmentalized

Pulp Friction

Balmain SS2010

Pondering killing myself, cash in on the life insurance & then re-
incarnate.
Probably the only way I'll be able to afford to dress in Balmain come
spring.
Might actually be worth trying.

Boro Boro!





Japanese indigo boro (patchwork).
Meji era, I think?
So natural you could probably smoke it.

Didn't win / Holubar

Vintage ca 1950's (?) Holubar ski anorak.
Haven't seen one of these in a long time.
Went for 200 buckaroos last week at the bay.
Was pondered going up to 250, still a good price. But I've been on a
rampage on Ebay lately, need to buy
food for the kids as well. Why can't they feed on vintage apparel? I do.
