Dutch Treat

What should I find in my email today but a message from the people at Oooms who have created great products such as the twig flash drives and this lovely item. If it looks familiar, it's because it was designed in 2003 and has been sold at Moss for several years. Oh, sorry. It's a dildo. That's right, your very own, Dutch designed, glazed ceramic, personal, um, accessory. When I asked what was new about it, Guido (his real name) Ooms emailed back "We just never found the time before to set up a nice email and have the pouch...

Awesome cheap boots (for guys)

My friend Chip and I made our annual pilgrimage to Coney Island in the middle of winter. After walking the boardwalk we headed over to Brighton Beach Avenue, where I always go to buy smoked fish (I love a Chub, or Chubb, or however you spell it). We found ourselves in a dollar-like store called Jackie's (130 Brighton Beach Avenue, between Ocean Parkway & Brighton 1st Street, 718-266-7314 no website). I could spend hours in stores like this - most things are very cheap, and kind of tacky. But there's always a jewel to be found and this time it...

Show some leg

Last week I spent two days in Paris. On the morning of my departure, I took a quick walk over to the Tuileries to see "Maman," a spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois. Apparently a whole family of these 30-foot-tall wonders graced Rockefeller Center in 2001. If you missed that installation, and find yourself in Paris anytime soon, it is so worth the effort to check this one out. ...

The flats you need for summer

A couple years ago, when in Charleston, I came upon a shockingly good store called Worthwhile (shopworthwhile.com), where I bought a pair of great sandals by a guy I'd never heard of named Matt Bernson. Back in NYC, we ran these sandals in Best Bets and just yesterday I met Matt live in the flesh for the first time and saw his spring/summer and fall '08 collection - both rocked. Below are a few samples of shoes you'll wear every day. And the best part is, they won't break the bank - and your cost per wear will be pennies...

Lambertson Truex gets slouchy

I had the opportunity to check out the fall offerings from Lambertson Truex earlier this week. I love those guys and am always eager to see what's going on, especially since they Samsonite bought a stake in the company and they've opened some stores. One word for this collection - WOW. Lambertson Truex, to my mind, has been known for very structured bags. Bags with posture. Bags that are - forgive me - very Bergdorf Goodman first floor (their core customer). I have a couple LT bags and they most certainly do not fit that description - my favorite is...

Adler-ize your walls

Jonathan Adler has thrown his glue brush into the wallpaper ring. I personally am so over the wallpaper thing, but I realize the rest of the world either (a) doesn't realize the trend exists and (b) salivates for anything by Monsieur Adler. For those of you who fall into these categories, your wall wardrobe options are below: that's just a sampling. see them all at jonathanadler.com...

The Next Moss Show

I love Moss because when they do a show, they do a show nobody else would do. It's stuff most people wouldn't understand or want or possibly even begin to afford - which is the point. When you get it, you get it. Here's the latest from 3 Dutch Masters (Maarten Baas, Hella Jongerius, and Studio Job), opening on March 24th. All are extremely limited editions, detailed info follows the photos: On March 24, 2008, Moss will open DUTCH MASTERS, a group show featuring Studio masterworks from designers Maarten Baas, Hella Jongerius, and Studio Job (Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel ).

Would you go to church if your church looked like this?

So, on the drive from Austin to Fredericksburg, we passed through a town called Johnson City. Its claim to fame is being the birthplace of Lyndon Johnson. But I say their claim to fame really should be the fact that here, in a teensy texas town, stands this gorgeous geodesic dome-like church. It's called the Liberty Lighthouse Fellowship and despite repeated emails and phone calls I couldn't get the scoop. Looks like a kit house to me. It wasn't open but I did get one interior shot. And can we discuss the color? I gotta meet the person who thought...
