So there is a reason I barely blog anymore: I’m having a baby August 20! I love being pregnant. This is my baby registry. It’s been interesting sorting through all of the baby junk and essentials. Here is a pretend sonogram I made of the Baby.
My dear friend Celina just launched her clothing line La Selva. What makes this collection so special is that Celina travels to Guatemala and personally selects each hand woven textile. They are all one-of-a-kind. Her incredible collection is very wearable and made in NYC. I am enamored by all of the hand embroidery.
Tommy Lanigan-Schmidt’s Tender Love Among the Junk is on view at Moma Ps1 through April 1. This is a a short studio visit of his home. He was my professor in graduate school and gave my brain a lot. I’m still thinking about what he taught me and how it shapes my current practice.
A couple of Fridays ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Nina Zilka and David Krause, the design best friends behind Alder. They are pouring their hearts and energy into making their lovely clothes locally in Brooklyn. I was delighted to learn that alongside their latest Mexico City collection they started making talc-free hair powder (my hair has never been happier). If you are looking for something special, check out Alder!
I was feeling meh today until I saw this. It’s a cement seal that shoots water when it’s summer time. For now, it is a beautiful cement and chalk beast.
