Puppy Love

Anyone want an adorable little poodle puppy? My boyfriend found him abandoned Saturday night at the park at S5th and Marcy in Williamsburg, and we've been looking for his owner ever since then. We've had no luck, so we are trying to find a wonderful home for him to go to. He's the best little puppy! We would keep him but we have three cats and a small apartment, so it just won't work for us right now. He has a great personality and is great fun to be around. I've been taking him out every morning for my run around the track so he is super energetic.

This cute little baby deserves a great home and lots of love- he will definitely give you lots...

Images of Untrusted Divine Things

One of my most favourite people, Jun Iseyama, in the world, who is also one of the best artists I know, is having a show in Chelsea at the moment. The opening was on Friday, so I went to see her (she's moved far away from here which is very saddening) and catch up with others but the definite highlight was seeing her beautiful works. While some might find them disturbing with their sexual yet childlike imagery, I find so much beauty in the grotesqueness of the caricatures and the flashes of colours across the paper.

From the press release:
With Images of Untrusted Divine Things, Iseyama merges her own cast of hybrid, sexualized, and child-like characters with scenes from Goya’s infamous Caprichos series. Mimicking, tweaking and deconstructing the iconic scenes of 18th century Spanish social and political satire, Iseyama develops a foundation to express her own desires, anxieties and fears.

Iseyama navigates a balance between past and present, Japan and the West, self awareness and naïveté, darkness and comedy. These contradictions are manifested in her visual style. Dark, dry, graphite lines collide with wet, drippy, vibrant bursts of watercolor.

Story Is There For The Taking

A few images from the lookbook I shot for Staerk's Spring/ Summer 2009 collection, The Storyteller. Everything in the collection was so beautiful, it's hard to choose just a few images to put up here. Camilla is an amazing designer with such a strong sense of style and proportion- with every collection she seems to refine and streamline her look into one that is both wholly original and totally wearable.

You can see the runway show here, and view past collections, learn more and buy current styles at Camilla's site here.
