DON'T DISMISS THE HISS!

The strangest hiss came my way last night. I was out to dinner when the topic of reality TV stars came up. Fashion people are going to have to learn to love it, I was assured. Because...
"Because what?" I ventured against my better instincts.
"Because Meisel apparently shot one."
"Whatever for?"
"VI"
"Are you being venal?"
"No, for real. An ANTM alumni at that!.They're feeling very perverse over there these days "
At that point I threw my espresso away and ran away trembling in the night. True story!

DOMINQUE AND SALIEU BY GAVIN THOMAS

Dominque and Salieu by Gavin ThomasDominque and Salieu by Gavin Thomas

I love the illusions of fashion. Gavin Thomas took Red's Salieu and Dominque into Brooklyn's Prospect Park on that weekend when the temperatures in NY soared past 100 degrees F. He managed to spin an illusion that these snaps were taken in some hillside village of Jamaica or Mali. Its equal to the illusion given by the models themselves, that they are some kids straight out a Malick Sibide photograph, when in fact they are NY bred! Nice dance around all those meddlesome visa issues too! For this edit I chose to highlight the pics of Salieu as we have some pending shots of a solo Dominque shoot coming this way. I especially like the shot with the suitcase on the bench. Cute touch!

CURRENT LISTENING: ADDICTED: ALAN BRAXE

I had a dream that the children of Timbaland and Basement Jaxx would one day get together on the dancefloor and bang like there were no barriers. And in my dream, they'd bang to this track. TGIF !!!!

LIKE A LIGHT SNAKE

Artemide's Boalum Floor light : Livio Castiglioni and Gianfranco Frattini : 1970.Artemide's Boalum Floor light : Livio Castiglioni and Gianfranco Frattini : 1970.

Chasing retro- modern furnishings ain't easy, I can say that much. I was craving a Boalum floor lamp as an addition to my underlit living room. I ordered one two weeks ago. I got an email today from the company I ordered from. Essentially I found out that the item has been discontinued in the US and had to be back ordered from Europe, a process that may take as as much as three months. Plus the price that I had been quoted was 30% off the actual retail. But Artemide is such a honorable establishment, they'll go through with the sale at the quoted price. Apparently this ugly little light is now a collector's item. I love retro-modern!
