like i’ve got nothing else to do

vintageshot
but lounge around and surf the net…hi everybody! i’ve been a little out of commish for the past couple days getting ready to head to nyc for the holidays and tying up some dramatic loose ends. i still had so many pics from my last obsessive post about philippe starck that it seemed natural to post them back to back. but again, you can’t even enter this man’s world without being pulled into a chasm of eye candy, historie, philosophie and utube!

this legend has done more spaces than anyone can keep track of

i’m an offical groupie. these pics are from bars and restaurants all over the world
and each has its own spin.

i have to apologize cause i’m not sure what’s from where
amst2
just got so caught up in the frenzy of beauty that i started losing track. it was all happening so fast!
bon6
love him or hate him, his body of work speaks volumes about his talent, but i did find a lot of articles about him rejecting design
lan-club
calling it all useless
le-bonparis
that’s blasphemous monsieur starck!

you give so much soul food for us to devour

even his minimal stuff is pretty…and i would certainly never question the designer’s designs

but i do have to ask, philippe, what’s up with the garden gnome?

hi guys! i was so happy you’re so into LC too that i was inspired to do another post on his work.
aacc
as much as he was peaches and cream
00264-10241_large
00264-10376_large
he also had another side one that was fascinated by the mysteries and sensual charms of of women
00264-10375_large
striking risque poses
00264-10400_large
and wearing whisper thin dresses
00264-10402_large
without a care in the world, especially the dangers of smoking =p
aad
he painted an age of folly and it was a new and exciting time
aaw
especially for a generation who were shocked at an exposed ankle

not to mention a glimpse of stocking
aax
aaz
sometimes the paintings are almost dark
00264-10482_large
but they’re always playful

but these ladies weren’t playing

when it came to love and seduction (i actually have the one above signed and framed on consignment in ny. if you like it let me know)

his body of work is endless!

whether it’s the weather,

hi friends! i know it’s pretty cold for so many right now so i hope you’re tucked in warm and cozy tonite!
yesterday i started cleaning off my desktop and was happy to see you enjoyed it. today i started working on some of the folders. so many of the images aren’t hi res so they can’t go to print. soooo the next best thing is to share them with you! i wish i could figure out how to get them to blow up when you click but it seems like wordpress may have changed that feature.

so tonite it’s louis icart, one of my favorite artists. he captured moments of contemplation,
