Building Block SS14

Building Block just released their SS14 bag collection and it is, as expected, just wonderful. i would have loved to see some brown leather options (like some of their previous collections) but there is something so slick about these simple black leather pieces against the stark architectural backdrops, and that fashionable model. sigh, can’t wait to wear boots again.

you can buy any of these pieces in their shop. photography by Jennilee Marigomen.

Building Block

you know that feeling you get when you’re super excited and nervous? say, before a date with someone you really like… or after you’ve just done something amazing like bunjee jumped or skinny dipped (with that someone you really like). heart palpitations might be the right word. WELL. i just got heart palpitations looking through the pieces at Building Block. god, it feels like i’m a teenager in love or something.

Building Block is a multi-medium design project based in Los Angeles, initiated in Tokyo by sisters Kimberly & Nancy Wu. Its focus moves freely in between luxury and industrial design where utilitarian materials and processes translate into minimalist forms. With the intent of magnifying essentials and editing out excess, Building Block finds continual inspiration in returning back to square one.
