Experimenting with fabric treatments for Spring ’12…
A hand-crafted jug we recently purchased from Iko Iko, filled with roadside flora. Gorgeous!
Boucherouite, hand-loomed rag rugs from Morocco. Bu sherwit in Moroccan = scrap torn from old clothing. A fine example of recycling textiles! Images courtesy Berber-Arts.
We have been looking at these photographs from John Divola’s 1977 “Zuma” project, which were all composed in deserted houses along Zuma Beach. He would graffiti the walls and arrange objects and debris to compose photographs of the beach sky through the windows. This resulted in a series of strange and beautiful images that rest between documentation and abstraction. All images courtesy LACMA online.
A recent search for printed-matter inspiration has led to a blog that consists entirely of vintage letterhead. Oh, we miss the handwritten word! All images courtesy Letterheady.
We are finally getting settled into the new Los Angeles studio, where inspiration for SS 2012 is abundant. Sometimes there is so much sunlight beaming through the windows that we have to wear shades inside.
