Yasuhiro Suzuki, The Zipper Ship

Japanese artist Yasuhiro Suzuki recently made this motorized zip ship, which I think is brilliant!

The zip measures 26 x 56 x 170cm, and I think the colours of this photograph are really beautiful too

It would definitely beat those lame boats that everyone races around the park lakes!


Cherry Ghost

Not quite the mix I wanted, but excellent all the same.

Happy weekend!


Leather love

I've long been a fan of leather label Fleet Ilya, and every season I covet another of the label's structured bags and accessories. Inspired by sculpture and saddlery, the pieces toy with bondage connotations and feature industrial details.
Fleet Ilya is available from Darkroom, London

Paris Versus New York

These posters have been popping up a lot recently. I’ve viewed them individually and admired their simplicity and charm, but en masse they serve as a witty dialogue of two iconic cities, as well as a visual cultural guide. See www.parisvsnyc.blogspot.com for more



I finally got round to watching Kayne West's venture in to the film world. Runaway is the story of a phoenix who comes crashing down to earth in a ball of beautifully burning flames and lands all leggy-limbed in front of West’s swanky car.

The pair fall in love and West trys to get the pheonix to adapt to life on earth. West’s course in etiquette echoes Pretty Woman - but without the charm, and the result is purely patronizing. Only topped when, in the next scene he climbs atop a piano and watches over a flock of ‘black but white’ swan ballerinas.

Perhaps I’m taking it too seriously though. While West may be a minor megalomaniac he certainly pushes boundaries, and this film is unarguably aesthetically stunning. Oh and the soundtrack’s pretty good too!

Written by Hype Williams and starring Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks - as well as the man himself. The film is art directed is by Vanessa Beecroft and has the Hype stamp all over it – candy colours and kitsch styling. Costumes are by Martin Izquierdo and Phillip Lim.

It’s certainly a short film rather than the long music video I’d been lead to expect, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Alber Elbaz for H&M

Now I don’t want to sound like a sissy, but there are few designers whose clothes I long to wear as much as Alber Elbaz’s creations for Lanvin. So knowing that his creative flair is soon to be applied to a capsule diffusion-of- a-diffusion collection for H&M fills me with a certain amount of joy and anticipation.

Yes I know that the taffeta won’t crunch they way it would on a couture piece, nor will the draping be as overtly voluptuous as that of the dresses he creates for the catwalk, but I don’t care. I’m intrigued to see how the limitations of fabric budgets etc will affect Elbaz relaying his signature style

Celebrity clothing lines really don’t do it for me, but there have been a few designer diffusions that have interested me - namely Viktor & Rolf for H&M and Jil Sander for Uniqlo. The question is, do I love it enough to get my elbows out against all those others who want a piece of the couture pie?!
