Reed Barrow's Artwork

I found a new artist I'm really into: Reed Barrow. Kind of techy, ethereal, and even mystical all at once.

I was first led to his LED chandelier piece which plays a 12 minute video loop of shapes/colours on 360 degrees of its surcace. It's called Monument to Amaranth and lives at the new Tommy Hilfiger retail store in Manhattan.

On his site I found some other great pieces like this "falling" meteorite,

and this Mystification Apparatus.


Lykke Li : Little Bit

I'm more than just a little bit in love with this song right now. The video is sweet too, all washed out like a Juergen Teller photograph. Enter synthy xylophone beat and syropy swedish pop voice and the video kinda makes you feel that bliss of waking up to a sunwashed room, clean sheets, and a heart-on for your crush lying next you.

And how cool is the suggestion of a private dance party at home, with a fully charged spotlight and all!


geek meets street

I love it when contradicting things that I like come together as one, like this case of geek meets street in an html closing "tag" for Bush.

Zaki on the cover NOW Magazine

Zaki Ibrahim's show this Tuesday night is going to be bananas. With NOW magazine putting her on their cover the week of the show, (which fyi was scheduled before the NOW feature, not the other way around as the article implies), the crowd's bound to be super hyped!

Here's the photo from the inside spread featuring pleated trousers by the fine chicas at common cloth, and custom bustier by yours truly.

Stylist to Zaki Ibrahim

This last week was spent doing some of my most rewarding work to date. Last Wednesday a talented crew and I shot the lovely and talented Zaki Ibrahim's PR shots to support her forthcoming EP. With Jesar's moral and creative support I art directed and styled the shoot. Turns out one of the looks will be used for the cover of NOW magazine, out this Thursday.

Here's a highlight from the day; one lovingly customized bustier avec spray paint, safety-pins, chandelier drop, chains, metal studs, buttons and kilt pins. It was inspired by the work of the stylist god that is Judy Blame (responsible for memorable Neneh Cherry and early Björk looks).

I'll post the NOW cover when it drops later this week.
