Artists Aurélie Mathigot and Gerard Richter showcase their art works inspired by the gradual alterations that nature makes to the landscape.
We’re all about instant ease nowadays. Tech startups continue to tackle the middleman, delivering our hopes, desires and basics to our doorsteps- whether we’re trying to eat heathy, rent a car, buy art, answer a question, or share news for all to see. As technology progresses and life speeds up, the in-between noise is evaporating. Today’s feature is all about taking a step back.
Elliot Aronow, creative curator, has come up with his very own line of men's neckwear to be released Winter 2013.
You’re a guy getting dressed for work this week, acknowledging that a) winter’s still going strong b) life’s always a juggling act and c) it’d be nice to throw a sharp/casual look together without having to over think it. This is where Elliot Aronow and his creative prowess comes in. Aronow’s been teaming up with brands for a while now, curating their collections and offering advice to a generation overwhelmed by options. He just launched a line of ties that transition from work to the weekend. In his own words…
Brooklyn-based artist shows off eye-catching creative projects in his first solo exhibit to be held in New York.
toomer labzda‘s latest exhibition’s a good one. This month, Max Warsh presents his first solo show in New York, entitled, Bilder, exploring the relationship between architectural facades, repetition and collage.
Do monetary constraints actually force us to be more creative?
The title of this post reflects the current state of affairs in so many stores around town and abroad. After everything’s been spent on product, PR and marketing, the window budget is usually minuscule, unless maybe you’re LVMH, Anthropologie or Bergdorfs…
The mind behind Pattern Pulp shares her discoveries from a recent trip to South America.
My first job in New York had me designing shoes. I illustrated prints for OskKosh, Lord & Taylor, Rampage, Target, you name it- if it was mass market and had a licensing deal, it probably crossed my desk. It was an education in product design, commercial pattern making, trend forecasting and a bit of office politics. As a result, I was obsessed with feet.
Director Sam Fleischner brings bold color and design to his new film about the 'Young New Yorkers Project' that helps to revise the curriculum for 16 and 17 year olds prosecuted as adults within New York State.
Busy, graphic and bold, just like it’s purpose. The Young New Yorker’s Project was recently forwarded along by Sam Fleischner, a very talented NY-based filmmaker, who (fun fact) also went to my high school. He recently shot Santigold’s Disparate Youth video and is in the process of creating Stand Clear of the Closing Doors, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.
There is an ongoing battle between the creative world, it’s observers, inspiration, and the act of plagiarism. So where should we draw the line?
This sign felt like a dare. I had to snap it. Was it art? A threat? Both? It was hanging at the entrance of Selfridges’s holiday retail art and pop up shop last year. It’s relevant today, as it succinctly illustrates the ongoing battle between the creative world, it’s observers, inspiration, and the act of plagiarism.
Philadelphia University Design Center's Ana Montiel plays host to a collection of beautiful, legendary textiles.
If you’re in the New York area experiencing this dreary afternoon, you might find a little joy perusing the Design Center at Philadelphia University’s tumblr. I stumbled upon it thanks to Ana Montiel’s gorgeous blog, and found myself digging deep, wading through swatch after swatch. The above pattern is brilliantly simple- it merges pointillism and geometric sewing textures. The blog houses 200,000+ objects related to textiles and fashion, ranging from plaids and conversationals to animated gifs and embroideries. The scans are pretty interesting, as you can see the pencil marks, stains and cataloging system that’s been implemented over time…at least prior to the internet.
Shayna Kulik describes how autumn iconic color has returned, and that it is showing up in some unlikely places.
Red is the comeback kid this Fall. I’m not sure if you recall seasons past, but it went on a bit of a hiatus, standing behind shades of magenta and plum. It’s interesting in a way, as I vividly remember the conversations we all had at the Color Associationround table a while ago, as we discussed the strength and emergence in Chinese and Russian territories and the direct influence it would have on European and American palettes.
Does the merging of texture and premium design create the ultimate product?
Who else read Colin McDowell’s column this morning on BOF? It was a critical synopsis of London Fashion Week. As I made my way through it, I was somewhat annoyed at the cynical tone, though nodding in agreement for most of it.
A snippet of textile inspiration from travels in Helsinki.
If any of you happen to be following along on instagram, you’ll know that I’m traveling at the moment – in the northern european capitals of Helsinki & Tallinn. As a result, Pattern Pulp postings will be a bit light up until Labor Day.
Black Milk clothing line uses the photo-sharing app to create community and promote its styles.
I’ve had my eye on Black Milk since since crossing paths with their skeleton bathing suit. Though I didn’t buy it -medium’s been out of stock since day one – I keep noticing their line in my Instagram feed.
