i will always love the party, mostly due to the fact that the phrase ‘birdie num num’ is a running joke in my family. second to peter sellers’ antics, the best thing about this film is the house where all the action goes down. as a kid i thought nothing was more glamorous than a house that had a water running through it (am i right?) … i still kind of think that! i also love the way sellers wanders around, completely out of place – i totally empathise with his party awkwardness… obviously the sixties vibe completely appeals to me as well. haven’t seen the party? do it.
i haven’t bought a design book in a long, long time. the reason being that i find all the awesome i need on the internet… for free. BUT that is a bad attitude to have, and i have decided to keep my collection going and growing. hence the purchase of this book called Graphic Design for Fashion by Jay Hess and Simone Pasztorek
This visually led book contains a global selection of the best graphic design studios’ work within the fashion industry – from packaging and lookbooks to swing tags and invitations – with exclusive insights from both clients and designers. The book features not simply the visual identities of big budgets and luxury brands, but showcases the creative processes of the world’s leading design studios.
it was so cool, rainy & awesome around here all weekend. imagining that it’s autumn and that i’d get to wear outfits like this for the next few months. won’t be happening in 30°C though, sadly. total price: $1338 (R9,273)
