At the Javits show over the weekend we also got a look at this gorgeous faucet. Literally a dragon.
Detail is the key word here — enormous attention has been paid to adding texture and minutiae to this epic animal. The spines and scales are perfect. I’m in love with the whole aesthetic and I want one in my apartment.

The Kiss
 Maria José Arjona

Location One, 26 Greene St., NYC (bt Canal & Grand)

The Kiss is an exhibition mapping a system uniting two bodies. It is a gesture, magnified by the use of sound, emerging from the action of kissing and intensified by the working presence of the performer’s body. - June 22

This sounds lovely — hmmmm I’ll have to see if I can make it. So should everyone else.

At the contemporary furniture show in Javits this weekend we caught a few excellent pieces. This one was so heavily industrial that even though it clearly and smoothly combined art with function it had an undeniably DIY feel to it that meshed with its lo-fi industrial-punk aesthetic all too well.
Also it looks really cool and I would use it constantly.

This is a show Jamie and I went to see a couple weeks ago on Bleecker hosted by the Culture Project and it’s amazing. 
The set and staging are particularly intense — not to spoil the fun but there are over 60 LCD screens involved and the set is largely encompassed by a picture window. Also recording booths and a beach.
The acting is good, with some actors clearly having stronger performances and also accent accuracies than others — I won’t name names, of course, but there you have it. I thought Shirley Knight played her role extremely well despite mixed reviews — some are saying she wasn’t celebutante enough but I like the fact that she played the character with some humanity and humility. The show would be weaker without it.
Anyway we loved it. Go see it.

I feel this was at Micheal Lord? Someone correct me if I’m wrong. It was late, we were walking uptown, and drinks had become involved …
But this scarf is terrific! I love the shape, material, flow, drape… I’d wear it. I’d wear the hell out of it. Maybe not in my summer gear. But it looks so cool with its thread, waterfall effect, asymmetry (which is soooo hot), and general aesthetic.
Do want.

We usually don’t like to post negative articles or thoughts on the blog bit this is too hard to resist.
This is why “fashion euthanasia” should be a thing that exists.
It’s horrifying. I tremble in terror before its menacing glow. Who is wearing this thing? I want to say it looks like a disco ball but it is a really POORLY executed disco ball.
We don’t love it.

On the LES by Bleecker after catching the phenomenal Masks Outrageous and Austere at the Culture Project theatre, we stumbled upon a MACHINE GUN SHIRT.
There was also a knife blouse and some excellent dresses and et cetera. The gun shirt definitely drew our attention though due to the overwhelming sense of cool that surrounds its existence. Who doesn’t want one?

These are some fancy badass shoes! I love badass shoes. I don’t wear them because I’m a little too classic looking, but I appreciate the daring aesthetic and the general punk rock vibe of these awesome guys.
