We just got one of these peelers, designed by Karim Rashid for the company Slice. So nice and simple. It's a nice shape and feels good, white plastic surrounded by soft silicone.

Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, KY

It's almost time to take some cool spring road trips. We are definitely going to check out some Shaker villages to see some craft, modern design inspiration and fantastical religious rhetoric. Here are the ones to visit: Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in Kentucky and Hancock Shaker Village in Massachusetts.

Thom Browne: Fall '09

Check out the full show / performance.

Paul Smith: Fall '09

Great jacket.

I have been checking out all the collections from this fashion month and the one that catches my eye has to be Paul Smith. It's typical stuff for Smith but that's a good thing. It seems that every other designer is over designing a bit but he's keeping it pretty simple... nice fits, good materials, interesting mix of patterns and colors. Check it out.

Black Fleece Flagship

Last Friday saw the opening of the 800-square foot Black Fleece store in the West Village. The Thom Browne designed line for Brooks Brothers currently has the entire Spring collection on display (it's not a huge store). It is nice to see where this middle ground between classic american cuts and patterns (Brooks Brothers) and the more contemporary and extreme cuts (Thom Browne's Personal Collection) intersects. It's quite wearable and surprisingly not super expensive.

Photographers I Love

Barnaby Roper: NY and UK based photographer. Represented by Moo Management


After the crash, Sully called the library to let them know that a book he had checked out was lost in the crash. The subject: professional ethics. Doesn't get better than Capt.Sully!

Mister Freedom

During my brief Tenure in the City of Los Angeles. One of the few bright spots (aside from the Bright Spot Cafe) was Mister Freedom. Just off Melrose Blvd. was the Mister Freedom shop where you'll find the most incredible albeit expensive selection of vintage military and workwear. A Continuous Lean got some good shots of the store and Mr. himself a while back.
