"For the first time in my 49 years we're not talking. We've never had much in common, but talked most weeks, making each other laugh about football and family. I wasn't surprised, or that hurt, by his diatribe, but I was disappointed to see his lack of interest in my happiness and disrespect for my choices. He didn't ask about the woman who will be the mother of his grandchild, or how happy we are. His concern was how he felt about my situation: a triumph of ideology over parental concern."

Not so convinced by the Whistles SS11 lookbook....nice clothes but they look like something Edward Scissorhands' domesticated female friends would wear. I'll probably love it next week.

Opening Ceremony x Chloe Sevigney

Not sure whether I really like this or whether it just reminds me of butterscotch Angel a bad way..

Agent Provocateur has changed their advertising style on their website by using nice matte bordered photos to show off their products as well as the classic models they always use.
They're kind of more burlesquey fun action shots, which I think works really well!

INFLUENCERS FULL VERSION from R+I creative on Vimeo.

I'm gonna make it better.

from Mike Lemanski's website
"Fold Print Repeat Series -

These large A1 piece were created whilst at University and are from a set of 30+pieces.

They came from the idea of printing large formats through a small format printer.

Each piece is folded down and printed in the case of one piece up to 26 times.
I wanted to create a link between the physical process of printing and the digital world which are usually distanced from each other."

blue valentine

You always hurt the one you love,
The one you shouldn't hurt at all.
You always take the sweetest rose,
And crush it till the petals fall.

You always break the kindest heart,
With a hasty word you can't recall.
So, if I broke your heart last night,
It's because I love you most of all.

Pattie and George

"Photographs can arrest waves before they crash on the shore: they have the power to extract moments from the flow of time. Hence the attraction of happy snaps such as this one, which presents a honeymoon as the prolongation of playful childhood, not the start of adult life."- Peter Conrad, The Observer, 9 Jan 2011.

The Kooples ad campaign

The Kooples advertises its brand through 'sexy' couples stories on how they met. It did get me to go to their website but to find pretty average clothes...still a cool idea though.
