Best Foot Forward

All the news has been doom and gloom lately – why not have a little fun? Either of these would handily navigate the upcoming seasonal transition, and provide a little reprieve from the army of tasteful classics that were all over the fall runways (nice as it is to see their return).

The Ultimate High-Low

The Cut reports today (via WWD) that H&M's next designer collab is with Lanvin. I will stand in line for nothing by choice, but this would be an exception that proves the rule. New Yorkers, go for yours!

Need vs. Want

I'm not sure where to find it but I have always wanted a shirt like the one Lalo Schifrin is wearing on the front of Medical Center (I believe this is called Swiss dot or dotted Swiss). Need.

AnOther recently featured a cool video on the taxidermy-based artwork of Polly Morgan – click here to watch. Her show Psychopomps is currently on view at Haunch of Venison London and you can see more of her work at her website.

For some reason, not just this, I am dying to go to London lately. Sometimes I think Seattle can draw as much, if not more, inspiration from there as from New York (I am ignoring LA for this exercise). Maybe it's the understatedness and the climate?

Image of the Day

. Invitation to poetry reading in La Conner by Charles W. Krafft, Summer 1980 (click to enlarge). This beautiful relic is on display as part of Fishtown and the Skagit River,
an excellent show at the
Museum of Northwest Art
chronicling the work of a group of artists who lived in a community of formerly abandoned fishing shacks on the Skagit River in the 1960s, '70s, and early-'80s. We stopped through on our way back from Whidbey Island yesterday and it was well worth the detour, to say the least. I'm sure Emily and/or I will have more to say about it, but for now, more info here.

Rest In Peace, Corinne Day

The brilliant and groundbreaking photographer Corinne Day passed away this weekend at the age of 45 after a prolonged fight with brain cancer. A former model herself, Day most famously shot Kate Moss for the July 1990 issue of The Face, helping to launch Moss's career as well as her own.

Read a more in-depth memorial at (many more are sure to follow) and see Corinne Day's photography at her website.
