Pretty silly, but why not?

NYC’s Dover Street Market site (schedule for December 2013)
The afternoon line.

Accessories
The items in this photo tend to be on my person about 100% of the time.. People like to see “What’s In Your Bag” etc–– I guess here is what isn’t.
These items have a thread of consistency, also. The ring and pendant are made by Goro Takahashi, purchased at Goro’s in Tokyo. On the CDG wallet there is a beaded strap taken from one of Goro’s pouches– an added piece of flare to personalize it.

A couple of years ago I travelled with Converse to the Bread & Butter trade show in Barcelona in order to survey their booth as well as the rest of the scene at large. In general I found it not unlike the Arab Parrot’s experience at the Magic Trade show in Vegas, and I came away feeling quite underwhelmed by the majority of the exhibitors, projected trends, products, and the “brand experience” people were attempting to sell. Thankfully it was in Barcelona, so naturally it was still a great trip.

A few things did manage to stick out at the show– I came across one of them cleaning house the other day:

This is a small stamp that is used to apply the fragrance Comme des Garçons “Man 2.” I can’t remember the story of the collaboration between the brand and designer Ana Mir, but I think it had something to do with a local magazine putting it all together. Its such a cool, simple idea.

Stopping off in New York, I got a package notice– and noticed it was from Tokyo. It was lucky that I was back in town because the Williamsburg Brooklyn Post Office sends back packages within about a week if they aren’t picked up, and its happened before. Punks!
Anyhow, I retrieved it and found that it was my friend Hide, who I’d just visited in Tokyo. He had said that he wanted to send something out to me and Diane– but I was pretty surprised by what he sent: a beautiful shirt from 10 Corso Como, one of my favorite stores.
I’m lucky to have such generous and thoughtful friends. Thank you Hide.
Now I’m scheming what to get for him!
