Jānis Avotiņš: Untitled, 2011 (Graphite on paper, 10.5 x 15 cm) at Ibid Projects in Hoxton, London, through March 10th.

Yes, Yes, Yes (mostly).

I really love the Joseph girl at her core. Clean and nothing too fancy, sharp but nothing too showy, a little bit Brit, and when right, just right. These were the best looks, IMHO.

I know exactly the friend I want to see in this.

New Rule

Fresh flowers always. (Preferably white.)

Tux Deluxe

I'm not sure why, but for the past few months I've been really into tuxedos and suits (especially three-piece suits) on women.

Dsquared2 (I know, I know, guilty.)

Gaia Repossi (The Gentlewoman, A/W 2011)

Giles Fall 2012 RTW

The fabric in this collection is pretty insane. Worth a closer look.

Mark Rothko, No. 5, 1950

Mark Rothko (selection from Google image search)
[click to enlarge]

An exhibition that traces the (semi-) native son's work from the 1920s through 1970 is up now at the Portland Art Museum.

Spot On

Jo-Ann Furniss ( "Sometimes it's up to the Americans to show the British where they stand with their own history—while also being just that little more reverential toward it." Nicely done. I know what label my winter coat Want is coming from. (Belstaff also gets bonus points for hailing from Stoke-on-Trent, my parents' old stomping ground. Incidentally.)
