Forget black. This weekend, it’s all about the little red dress…
Happy Valentine’s Day from Hudson. We *heart* you. photography by liz ham
Valentines Day is Saturday (in case you somehow missed the overabundance of pink frosted cookies in the supermarket and dangling red hearts in every shop). And, in a tribute to secret love notes, paperwhite studio created a site just for lovers of every kind to confess their own “I love you more than…” statements.
There are even different sections for different types of love. Like the *I heart N.Y.* submissions…
So if you’re not quite ready to tell your Valentine to their face… maybe just put it in words right here.
Ok, we’ll say it. When it rains in LA, and the temperature drops to (gasp!) 60 degrees, it means it’s time to pull out the cozy winter goodies. And being the laid-back west-coasters that we are, these sweatshirts from Little Houses are just what we need.
Structured and a little more stylish than your average hoodie, these almost make the cold weather tolerable… almost.
The Glasgow band with a very LA name, Camera Obscura recently released their first single off their upcoming album, My Maudlin Career, due to release in mid-April.
You can download the title track right here for a taste of what’s to come.
If you’ve never heard of them, check out this video – a classic Camera Obscura favorite, If Looks Could Kill, or listen to more tunes on their MySpace.
How do we judge a hotel? By its bar, of course. And what makes a good bar? A good drink. Which is why we’re taking notes from Travel & Leisure’s Top Bartenders list.
Grant Collins reigns supreme with his concoctions at the Zeta Bar in the Hilton Sydney, with his signature drink being the Cytrus Sorbet Gimlet (and yes, they’re sharing the recipes on the T&L website!)
A little closer to home is bartender Brian Van Flandern who mixes things up at Bemelmans Bar in The Carlyle, New York. His Agave Gingerita is a frothy little mixture that sounds to die for.
A few more to check out include Thierry Hernandez at Le Bar du Plaza AthÃˆnÃˆe in Paris (see his recipe for a Black Mojito – yum!) and Giuliano Morandin at the The Dorchester bar in London.
The first time we ever saw the paper stylings of Japanese designer Katsuyo Kamo was in the pages of the New York Times’ T Magazine…
While we quickly became fans of these stunning paper creations, we hadn’t seen much more of his work until now…
Arguably the most talked about look for the spring couture the stunning paper ‘hats’ designed by Kamo perfectly completed Karl Lagerfeld’s genius vision in white (with a touch of black). The 65 different headdresses were born out of two stacks of plain white copy paper by the master hairdresser and his small team. We can’t wait to see more of this genius work.
