BEADS

Tukadu: Perlen and Schmuckdesign is an over the top bead and jewellery shop in Berlin. It is one of the strangest and coolest shops I've been in. It was full of weirdos making their own tribal amulet-style necklaces out of little plastic cats, rubber whales, crystals, dried up foliage et c.

The staff look fiercely gothic but despite the burlesque vibe in the shop as it was Berlin I got the feeling they all probably listened to eurotrance in their downtime.

BUNNY

Bunny Lamp made from bone china.
Available from Corky Saint Clair $130Au

SKULL

Hand painted Mexican skull candle holder - throws cool shapes on the ceiling

Available from Corky Saint Clair $49au

TRAY

Corona Tray $39Au from Corky Saint Clair

Imagine the look on your boyfriend's face when you bring him a tall, cold beer on this handsome tray. Wear a pair of high heels and and that's an Official Date Night.

What other things could you put on the tray? 

FOB

The fashion industry wants us believe that Alice in Wonderland is the key to this season's looks. I really hope top hats don't come into fashion - that always says 'circus' and 'freaky' to me.


An easier nod would be to carry a cute fob watch such as this sweet piece.


 Ceramic Deer fob watch
Available from Corky Saint Clair $39Au

FUNGHI

Wooden Mushroom Necklaces from Berlin. If you got invited to an Alice in Wonderland party (which seems to have replaced Mad Men as the party theme du jour)  this could be the laziest costume ever.

Available from Corky Saint Clair $30Au

LENKO

Look at this sweet review our sister shop Lenko got in the fashion edition of Melbourne Magazine




The editor's pick - Corky Saint Clair Wooden Jewellery. 

Damn, she has good taste.

BAG

I bought you this heavy felt bag at The Box in Berlin but decided to keep it. It attracts so much of the right attention when I carry it around. I think anything with gold stitched text will make people stare, especially when it has the word 'intellektuell' on it.

perfectly pitched comedy or every flavour of wrong - either way it's hard not to watch this 'next level shit'

BEN

Sorry I haven't been posting, I have/ have had the worst food poisoning ever. I think I got it from a weird carrot juice I got from QV. I kinda knew something was up because my request for frozen yoghurt and muesli stumped my service provider, so I said 'don't worry about it I'll just get a carrot and apple juice' and she had to look up how to make that and was shoving weird shit into it, like oranges.

I feel that if you are so unknowledgeable about the basics of the food and beverage industry that you can't even make a classic like carrot and apple juice, then you probably wouldn't know about this new practice called 'washing your hands'.

Anyway, here is our new necklace - "BEN" the rat necklace you have been looking for. It is made from 20 grams of solid silvery goodness, which is nice weight to have around your neck.

And, yes I washed my hands before I put them on the floor.

Available from Corky Saint Clair, Lenko, Kids in Berlin and Tomorrow Never Knows. $160Au RRP

CLOUD



























I took this photo right before we got the Flood of the Century last week. Should've known something was up.

OGEE

I found this unusual powder coated steel Ogee shaped chain in Tokyo and bought some for the shop. Girls have been buying them which is heartening because I wasn't sure if people would like them as much as I did.


85cm, $39 available only a Corky Saint Clair

SCOTCH

I 'put together' this (I found the pressed tin image in NYC and the flask in Melbourne) for my friend Mikolai's birthday present - the pregnant lady scotch flask!

It kinda doesn't make any sense but it made me laugh when it was finished.

FLOOD

The subway got flooded today, it was dramatic.

Louis was like
-ugh something very bad is about to happen 
and we went outside and there was so much water rushing in it didn't make sense. There was a 4m waterfall from the street into the subway down the staircase it was incredible - just a wall of solid water. To be honest I enjoyed the spectacle of it.







The funny thing was people were still trying to buy stuff with the lights out and a foot of water. How much clearer could it be that the EFTPOS terminal was not going to work?  

Had my photo taken by Fashion Hayley as I did clean up - 'The Flood Outfit'. I love this Patty Smith teeshirt from the Dead Flowers series by Bbblessing in the LES. It looked really good wet with my new gumboots. I got some of their tees to sell at Corky but there's only a handful.



And at the studio there was a 3 metre waterfall falling directly into my design space.


It really was like Melbourne saying 'Welcome Back'. It was OK - all these extreme weather glitches create a rupture that allow for dialogue so I am happy for that.

PS1


Went to PS1- a tad underwhelming - more of a community vibe than International Must See Institution. The centrepiece was this swimming pool installation by Leandro Erlich. It was OK - a bit of a 'wow' moment as you walk into it.


My favourite work at PS1 was by Hank Willis Williams. I couldn't get a clear picture as there were too many security guards around.


The text in the tiny photo says
"negroes will control the intensity of fight"

GRNYC

HEART

Window dressing in NYC really is an art form. I liked this typographic display at Stella McCartney's shop in the Meat Packing District. It is made up of hundreds of vintage cards. Sweet.

HERE

This girl at D'espresso in the LES was wearing one of my friend Neil Thomas's necklaces. It's kinda cool to think it made is way over here.

I saw some guy wearing one of my scarves on Madison Ave but it felt a bit stalker-y to take his photo. I checked the label though.

DREAM

WTF


Saw this amazing building in Tribeca. It was massive and had virtually no windows. Even my NYC friends were stumped. What is this awesome building?

TOTAL

HIGH

Here's a photo of a couple macking hard at Highline in the Meatpacking District. This park that opened in August 2009. It is a fun combination of nature & architecture, full of sculpture-y furniture that is hard to walk across...
