Spencer Fung Archirtecture By Hand

“I admire the way children paint. They are so spontaneous, and capture shapes, form and colour so beautifully. Artists are always trying to recapture this – if you put a Picasso next to child’s painting you can see similarities in the brush strokes.

Architect Spencer Fung whose Instagram in a delight and whose book, Architecture by Hand, I keep seeing everywhere…

The fact is, it is possible to consume opinion and events (and carrots) without feeling the same need to consume garments. Clothes are signposts of personal communication, and as such they should be long-term acquisitions. Otherwise you risk identity whiplash.” (more…)

Jeff Koons Louis Vuitton collaboration

“Eventually, even the least with-it, most out of touch, willfully uncool parent is going to get a whiff of how culturally irrelevant these collabs have become. Even the most thunderstricken hypebeasts are going to look up from their rigorous collecting and say, “honestly, this is a bit much.””
