Woolmark sounds

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

my brother composed the score for this Woolmark award doc about the awesome Christian Wijnants.

Unfortunately, you can’t watch it on Material Concern: but you can see it here: International Woolmark Prize – Christian Wijnants – European Finalist 2012 from The Woolmark Company on Vimeo.

Crazy shit from the world of fashion

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Two articles of note: please feel free to draw your own connections.

1. A Saks customer found a note from a forced-labor prisoner in China in her bag.

2. Forever21 has a new store concept where camis are $1.80 (yes, one dollar and eighty cents) and jeans are $7.80 (yes, for realz), for the bargain customer. It’s opening on the 3rd. I wish it opened today because that would just be too ironic.

become good friends with Lupita Nyong’o so that, after a good amount of time of hanging out, drinking wine, talking about books and movies and art and stuff, she’s like, “OMG, LIZZ, you have to take home this big bag of stuff designers keep sending me because I can only be seen wearing it once, and I’m sure you have tons of places to wear it” ?

Lula

magazine is changing editors. Leith Clark is moving on to “VIOLET,” and Sheila Single and Maya Kolqvist are coming on board. This news via Fashionista.

I love Lula magazine, case in point here and here.

I couldn’t find some of my favorite images from over the years: a shoot of Veronique Leroy dresses on Iekelina Stange, Kime Buzzelli’s drawings of Michelle Williams talking about tap dancing,  a girl on a couch wearing mustard tights with a huge collaged wall behind here, but I did find these:

Jody Rogac

Friday, January 31st, 2014

I met Jody Rogac last week on the set of the movie I was working on.

She was shooting behind the scenes and taking portraits. Her work is calm but intense, striking yet casual, honest and beautiful, quiet but memorable. I really love it.

Here are some of my favorite shots of hers, and so many more are on her website.

(love love LOVE this picture of our mutual friend Nancy)

you can buy her recent book, In Between, at Alldayeveryday’s online shop.

just like a zit (or ACNE)

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

sometimes things get under your skin, and you don’t notice it at first, but then it erupts, and it’s the only thing you can see on your face,even though everything else looks great.

Speaking of which: I read ACNE paper today. It has beautiful shoots and thought provoking articles and interviews I’ve been thinking about all day.

However, about 100 pages in, I realized I hadn’t seen a woman of color…and it kinda got under my skin.

The issue this time is about female actors (or actually, people who act as women)….and one would think that women of all kinds act as women of all kinds. In the approximately 300 pages, there wasn’t a single asian, black, indigenous, latina, or semitic woman pictured. There was a short article about an african-american actress who lived a parallel life to Marilyn Monroe….but that was it.

Ignoring the women who portray the majority of women in the world is gross.

Way grosser than a big nasty zit in the middle of your face.

When I heard

a couple months ago that the Head Designer of COS was moving to the Gap: i was pretty psyched.

Anyone who reads this blog know that I love the Gap, or shall we say, the ideal idea of the Gap: a collection of simple pieces that become the building blocks you create a wardrobe around. Accessible, affordable pieces that you can keep and re-integrate each season.

COS is a pretty awesome simple and elegant line owned by H&M….it’s Jil Sander for everyone, or very tasteful Uniqlo. Honestly, it’s european dream Gap.

Rebekka Bay is the lady in question: and she’s awesome. Elle did a big article with her and you can read it here.
