A photograph by Hans Neumann of actress Vera Jordanova, at home in New York – from Sous Style, the newly launched website by our multi-talented friend Pippa Lord (currently Photo Director at Elle, formerly at V and VMAN). I love her manifesto for the site:
We want to make our houses into homes, but we’re not necessarily married with two kids and a mortgage.
Our “houses” might just be apartments or rooms we rent, but they are spaces we call our own.
We plan a dinner with the same attention to style and detail that goes into planning our daily outfits.
We consider ourselves fashionable, yet our diets aren’t based on coffee and cigarettes.
Our homes aren’t necessarily flawless, matching, precious, or proper.
We make mistakes, spill things, add too much salt, and sometimes eat on the run.
We love men who cook and women who eat—and vice versa!
We’re a perpetual work in progress.
We don’t know all the answers but we’re curious to find out.
We believe in the “imperfect perfect.”

The exhibition runs through January 8th – visit the International Center of Photography for more images and info.
A 300-page book, Harper's Bazaar: Greatest Hits, was also recently published. Adding it to the want list.

Visionaire 61: LARGER THAN LIFE, the biggest magazine ever produced ever. The cover image is Lady Gaga by Inez & Vinoodh but I'm mainly posting it because I love the type. Click here for a preview video and if you're in NY, stop by 11 Mercer to look through the issue in person.

Mario (produced by Scott Storch) "You Should Let Me Love You" from Turning Point (2004, J Records). At the end of my last day in New York last month my brother and I went to Christian Louboutin (present for Emily), White Columns, then to Myers of Keswick for a quick pasty, and back to the Jane Hotel to get my luggage, and as we walked in a car went by playing this song really loud, and I was reminded that this is a great song. Quit lying, you love it. Play it loud. Do it.
Trailer for I Hate My Collection – a new documentary on Central Saint Martins, arguably the most influential fashion school in the world (I mean, tied with Parsons, of course). More info here.
(Side note: Attoe is from Bremerton, WA)
Dogs and polar bears are friends – from the TV show "Jailed Polar Bear." In Churchill, Manitoba ("the polar bear capital of the world"), bears who wander too close to town are kept in a safe holding area until Hudson Bay freezes over and they can be released back into the wild.

Opening sequence of Kenneth Anger's 1964 short film Scorpio Rising, which we projected on the wall this past weekend during a big party in the studio.
I picked up the current issue of Purple Magazine yesterday and it features a great interview with Kenneth Anger – worth checking out if you get a chance.
