Bretz Sofas: Possibly the Ugliest Sofas Ever Made

The website for Bretz Sofas is, and, quite honestly, you would probably need to be in a cult to own one of these pieces of furniture. Because only someone who has been brainwashed would pay thousands of dollars to buy a Bretz Sofa. They are truly the ugliest sofas I have ever seen, and […]

Brand Crack: The Louis Vuitton $42,000 Handbag

Maybe I watch too much crappy television? I don’t know. But, I was watching the Preview Channel – you know, the channel that scrolls the TV guide at the bottom while washed up child actors talk celebrity gossip- the other day when the woman on the show started barking on and on about Louis Vuitton’s […]

Rhombuswear Binary Shirt

Are you a geek in need of clothing? Here’s an excellent option from Rhombuswear. It’s a shirt completely covered in ones and zeros, or the binary code for those in the know (BTW, click on the image to get a better look). This shirt, and an extremely competent first collection beyond this shirt, is the […]

Laptop Sleeve by Red Maloo

Red Maloo began its existence when the company was originally asked to design a laptop case presented in 2004 at the Tokyo Ambient Lifestyle Fair. The initial design was constructed of the finest Japanese Linens and used similar design and construction as kimonos. Soon after, Maloo introduced the Red Maloo Laptop case made of a […]

Jacket from Spring 2007 Collection by Jurgen Oeltjenbruns

Don’t ask me to pronounce his name is the first thing that came to mind when I first saw the work of Jurgen Oeltjenbruns. Fortunately for me, blogs are a print media, so no pronunciation required. Once you get past the highly unmarketable name you hit the most important men’s fashion designer out there: Jurgen […]

Obelisk by Dedon

The Obelisk collection by Dedon is a piece I’m in love with for nostalgic reasons. When I was a kid, my parents took me to many different seaside resorts in Mexico and in Europe. I would spend my days swimming, playing games, eating, and sitting in a woven chair very similar to the Obelisk. All […]

Spring 2007 Collection by Y and Kei

Y and Kei are a Korea base design duo with offices in New York who’s 2007 Spring collection astounds me. Their work is permeated with white and a shimmering tan. The overall concept is casual as if the models were walking along a beach boardwalk enjoying the summery breeze. I’ve been looking at several collections […]

ID 40 2006: Pillow Cover by Groovisions

Over the next week or two, I will include some of my favorite designers from ID Magazine’s “ID 40” list of top designers of 2006. It’s a pretty amazing list, so I urge you to pick up a copy of this magazine. Groove Visions is a Tokyo based design collective with a cool little store […]

2007 Collection by Bruno Frisoni

Bruno Frisoni brings to mind: extreme high heels.  Now, I live in San Francisco. In the Mission District to be exact. And if any of you know the Mission, especially around the area of the New College, you would know that a woman would probably get  scoffed at for wearing such a shoe as a […]

2007 Collection by Samantha Pleet

Samantha Pleet is a young Brooklyn based designer fresh out of school just last year. Despite her young age, or maybe because of it, Ms. Pleet has produced an extremely competent and thoughtful collection. The color palette for her 2007 collection are muted greys and blacks with accents of red. It’s very unfortunate that my […]
