Shopping with me eyes.09. May 2013
I went snooping around Urban Outfitters last night and I picked out all the things I would like to have delivered to me in a nice giant present box. We have Topshop and Zara and now we NEED Urban Outfitters and H&M. Not sure who Mr. Big Bucks is that brings stores like this here, but I wish they would ship these 2 over.
Anyway I went on a virtual shop last night, I would of ordered a bunch of these things but the problem is you get slammed with import taxes when they arrive here. I ordered something off Urban Outfitters a few months ago and even though it arrived in good time, I landed up paying nearly R800 in taxes, so whatever you order make sure you really really really want it.
I really really want all these things.
SUNO08. May 2013
Suno makes such pretty things, expensive but pretty. Feels like one should be holidaying in Greece wearing these dresses.
- SUNO is a New York based womenswear label founded in 2008 by Max Osterweis in collaboration with designer Erin Beatty.
Georgie Cummings30. April 2013
Found this sweet little label named after it’s creator Australian based Georgie Cummings. She makes everything by hand and I like how her designs are clean and simple yet quirky. Love the leather purses and the bone shaped necklace. I also like how she displays some of her pieces using ‘floating’magic arms, they make me smile.
- I am a designer/maker living in Melbourne, Australia. My interests lie in things that are made by hand, craft and mutual exchange through practice. Materials I choose always come back to the natural with ceramics and natural fibres taking the foreground. I have a Bachelor Degree of Design; Industrial Design, Class 2A Honours, completed 2010 at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
Ana Teresa Barboza28. April 2013
Wowzers, how amazing is this lady’s work? I stumbled across Ana Teresa Barboza’s stuff when looking around Booooooom and I’m so happy I did. I have seen many an embroidered piece on this here internet, but non quite like these. They are so super cool and strange all at the same time and even though the subject matter is a little macabre, I still think they are really awesome pieces of art.
The kitten attacking the person’s face has got to be my favourite.
- Ana Teresa Barboza is interested in the different concepts she can arrive while using clothing or embroidery on her artistic work. Great part of her work concentrates around the human body. At the beginning she worked the body as a fragmented structure which she sewed and embroidered back into shape. The awareness of the human body and its stuffed organs were realized in a raw primal manner. From “Modes of Dressing” this concern to the body and its interior is displaced outwards, to her surroundings to concentrate on the links which tie her to others. She uses dress as a means of socializing, simulataneous to a metaphor of the human body. Graduated from Faculty of painting at the PUCP In 2010 she won First prize of Banco Central de Reserva and in 2006 the First prize for Pasaporte para un Artista.
