I’ve been looking at lots of art for my apartment recently (I’m officially shooting it next month for Matchbook!) and was pleased to stumble across the work of Arian Behzadi. I want to hang a 4×6 of the first shot above my desk in one of those cheap acrylic box frames.
I’m headed back to New York in three weeks for work. Can’t say that I mind. I have these binders of archived clippings I’ve saved since elementary school (a Vogue article here, a neatly folded Sunday Styles page there…) and in them I came across this Ezra Pound quote scribbled on a piece of ruled paper. So well put.
“Is New York the most beautiful city on earth? It is not far from it. No urban nights are like the nights there. I have looked down across the city from high windows. It is then that the great buildings lose reality and take on magical powers. Squares and squares of flame, set and cut into the ether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will.” -Ezra Pound, 1913
Let’s kick off the week with stripes, shall we? I nearly died over the “penthouse” key chain (it’s part of Anya Hindmarch’s bespoke line and can be monogrammed!) and “Primrose Hill Picnic” nail lacquer? Get in my life.
Do you read the blog Park & Cube? I must have been living under a rock because I just discovered it tonight. Shini Park was born in Seoul, raised in Warsaw, and currently resides in London. She also happens to take some of the most stunning photos you ever did see (she’s a graduate of Central Saint Martins). I look forward to following along on her adventures from now on. Just lovely.
