all fashioned-out.

Enough with the runway reviews, I have an inkling that you are just as fashioned-out as I am. As a Sunday palate-cleanser, here's a mishmash of things I saw around New York that week, off-catwalk:

the clothespin double-collar by stylist Polar Buranasatit

Giles and Brother bracelet on Philip Crangi's biggest fangirl, Lauren Festine

metal and leather earrings made and worn by the gorgeous Angie of Norwegian Wood. Have a stroll through the site; I may be on the way to purchasing one of their architecturally offbeat collars one of these days...

odd pairings

hip-hop and 90's pop blast amidst taxidermy, important art, a fireplace, a disco ball, and gilded ceilings: I love the Jane.

the Misshapes DJing at Le Bain

a most welcome break from the fashion freak show: Alexcalibur at Arlene's Grocery in the LES

carciofi fritti (artichokes fried in olive oil) at one of my favorite holes in the wall, Tre on Ludlow Street. It's remarkable how much it resembles the Filipino chicharon bulaklak, literally "flower cracklings", parts of a pig's entrails that resemble (an albeit oily and brown-gray) flower when deep-fried to crisp perfection.

the inseparable Thom Browne twins, Melanie and Austin. The latter, previously featured on The Dandy Project, just started quite an eloquent blog (I kid) called "Why You Mad?!" (see what I mean?). Show some support and click on the link.

Love the black and white photographs they always look so much better in certain illustrations and situations in my opinion. Nice work!
