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.

Gant Rugger Trunkshow / Yes Please





Again, from the Gant Rugger trunk show in Stockholm.
Refresh my browser and call me Nancy!
Louis Lunch








Louis Lunch is basically where the burger as we know it was invented. So it comes as no surprise I was like a kid in a kandi-store when we went there this september. They whip it up old skool stylee. Toast, patty, onion, tomato and cheese.

Historical landmark? Check.
Cool place & cool cook? Double-Check.
Vertically grilled patties in cast iron gas fueled Monsters from 1890's? Check
Wierd Birch Soda only locals truly understand the greatness of? Oh Yes.
Best Burger I've ever had? Not even close.

Oh, and if you go there, do ask for ketchup, I double dare you.
Didn't win

The middle one please / Ebay treasures




Fo Sho!


From the live installation in stockholm. Again, the creative team behind Fashion Tale Magazine show that they're a force to be reconned with. Carl-Axel Wahlström is the new black.
I know I'm bias as hell, but this is beatiful.



I've mentioned Fashion Tale Magazine several times on this blog.
So when the team behind FTM got the green light to make the documentary videos of 60th birthday party happenings in Stockholm I kind of knew it would be good. But this is fucking awesome.
We, as always, take a bow.

Fois Gras Burger. That meat patty ain't exactly stuck between a rock and a hard place.

We had the joy to have a wonderful (and beautiful) skipper during the regatta in Newport. I wanna look like that when I'm 50. Check out that jawline, that's the kinda skipper you can hang on to when the shit hits the fan.



Muji's first sublabel. Labo
I love Labo.

Gant Rugger in the streets.

Check it, love it, buy it.
