...."Oh Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars. ..."

"...shall we just have a cigarette on it? .."

..well i'm still on my life long B.D kick. last night i caught the last hour or so of Davis' 1942 uber maudlin "Now Voyager". Such a classy movie. I hadn't seen this in years, but it's still great. Love the plot (strangely enough), the fashion (of course), the language, the dual cigarette lighting, ... so goood.

also, in regards to my previous bauhaus enjoyment, i got a book about josef and anni albers-- gonna read and look it over-- so far, seems awesome. -- oh the functionality.

here's yesterdays picture; i forgot to post it.

more tuesday

well, i'm off on a matchey matchey spree as I can get.

at least there's stripes and cigarettes!


well today I'm thinking about the Bauhaus exhibit i saw yesterday at the moma. went the last day, should have gone earlier-- wish i had more time to look at all the stuff.

loved the textiles from anni albers and gurta stolzl

loved the color wheels, and the thoughts about color gradients

loved the abundance of primary colors, .. the super saturation,

loved the (to me) not pretentious color blocking-- how it all melded, but then didn't -- you could see the color and shape thoughts behind it.

so on these notes, here's my bauhaus inspired design. i do a lot of the melding but non melding color striping, so i thought i'd bring it to an extreme -- haha. which is nothing new.

well this is my first day ever blogging. i'm not sure about this whole concept, but i figure it can be worth it. i'm fashion and art crazy, so i'm going to try to post a sketch a day of my latest brain storm. i might put some other "inspiration" pictures too if i can figure out what i'm inspired by.

below are some of the first sketches i'm aiming on showing all of you.

check out my website too-- it's from my first collection from last season (S/S 2010) --
