Giorgio Griffa

If there is one art show I kick myself for missing it’s Giorgio Griffa at Casey Kaplan Gallery in NYC.  I am obsessed with the Italian artist’s work.  His last show titled Fragments 1968-2012 spanned four decades of his career and included paintings on un-stretched canvas and linen.  Looking at the photos of his paintings make me think of symbols and patterns and of the natural progression and flow of things.  Some of them look very ’80s while some of them look very contemporary and even remind me a little of block-printing, and I could really see a few of them being great album art.  I think what first drew me to his work was his use of color – pastels that bleed onto linen and darker tones used to create lines and shapes that merge together to form what looks like it could be some kind of code or numerical formula.  I really hope I get to see his work in person some day.

Agnes Baddoo

At the last Echo Park Craft Fair in December I met the incredibly lovely and talented Agnes Baddoo, designer and creator of both therapeutic air sprays made with essential oils and a line of supremely chic and functional leather bags.  I purchased one of her sprays and developed a huge crush on her bag known as the Sac and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.  Naturally, she expanded upon the perfect 12 x 12 size and introduced a 15 x 17 size which is not only a great everyday tote but it also works for the office and is great for traveling, which I often do for business.  I’m always switching out bags for trips depending on what I’m packing, how long I’ll be gone, and what I plan to do – hitting up markets for sourcing, having meetings, etc. and  I like to have options.  The Sac comes in natural cow leather, black cow leather, and a natural and canvas combo.  All can be purchased through Agnes Baddoo’s website.

Kneeland Co. Embellished Scarves

I’m very happy to have designed a collection of one-of-a-kind embellished vintage scarves for Anthropologie that recently launched online and in select stores.  I had so much fun sourcing the scarves and coming up with ideas to incorporate into each one.  I live for embellishments.  They make me crazy in the best way possible and I am always interested in learning about different techniques that go into creating special, beautiful things like clothing or accessories or objects.  This collection has inspired me to expand my horizons! We’ll see what comes of it.
