This week we wanted to share some of our favorite memories from our trip to Laos during our month long journey traveling South East Asia. Laos is by far one of the most special places we have ever visited. We absolutely loved the city of Laung Prabang and often talk about how we could easily see ourselves living there. The city is extremely passionate and respectful towards the rituals and traditions of the Monks and the hundreds of temples. One of our favorite sitings was The Walk of Monks or Tak Bat. Hundreds of Monks of all ages walk through the town at 5:30 AM, collecting food from locals along the way to their temples of worship.
We also attended the night market many of times and hauled home handmade textiles and yummy cheap treats. During the day we rented motor bikes and road through the country side. There we swam and hiked breath taking waterfalls, followed by a martini at Icon Klub that we still crave!
Oh and – WE ROAD AN ELEPHANT! :)
We are so excited for the launch of Day Job Magazine by Elliot Walker. “Day Job is a publication for anyone who has ever had a job they’ve loved, a job they’ve hated, a life-long calling or a way to make an easy buck. In short, it’s about work, a celebration of the everyday ways in which we spend our time and energy.”
When Elliot asked us to style and shoot the story ” Lunch Break ” for the magazine, we were thrilled given it’s our favorite time of day :) Check out the spread we did below and also please pick up a copy either online or at your neighborhood New York bookstore. You would be supporting a wonderful project and we definitely think it’s worth the read.
Have you noticed the schools of Jellyfish closing in on you? We have and we LOVE them! A couple weekends ago we were in Bushwick when we first noticed them. Now we see them popping up all over the city. We love the simplicity of the organic drips and the color pallets. On a gloomy street, they brighten your walk!
Jello isn’t just for kids anymore. These gelatin cakes take dinner parties to a whole new level! We have become completely obsessed with them ever since we noticed the gelatin cake story in Gather Journal. We love all the weird colors and molds you can use to make these glowing, jelly gems. We also love how you can make a gelatin cake ultra sophisticated with a molded floral surprise inside. Very neat.
Annnnnnd we’re back! We just recently returned from a month long journey backpacking South East Asia. Our excursion consisted of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. Each country touched a special spot in our hearts and we look forward to sharing our favorite memories during our trip. This week, we are sharing our adventures in beloved Cambodia!
We stayed at the Golden Banana bed and breakfast in Siem Reap and rode the neighbor’s bicycles into Angkorwat where we explored the ancient ruins. Fascinated by the scale of the architecture, the jungle and overrun trees, we found ourselves exploring for days. The colors, surprises and people living and worshiping in the temples inspired us with their bold passion. We can truly say that Cambodia changed our little lives and took our breath away. We miss it already and yearn for the day to visit once more.
This weekend Rachel Antonoff had her SS 13 Presentation! Her collection was inspired by the Charles and Ray Eams film Powers of Ten. This film focus on the relative size of things in the universe and the effect of adding another zero. I really love this concept and was very excited when she asked me to make this PO10 areial pattern. I also drew the “I’m with Her” graphic which she had printed on a handful of tee’s and sweatshirts!
This week we blew up the set deign for SHADES of GREY by Micah Cohen’s 2013 Spring/Summer Collection. After being asked to design Micah’s presentation and viewing his new collection, we were jumping with excitement to be a part of it all. Inspired by the colors and acid surf vibes of the collection, we created a minimal, graphic and surreal environment.
We painted 9′ tall palm trees of various shapes and species jet back and placed them amongst the turquoise backdrop, bar and lounge area. The models stood on red platforms in staggered formations with red sand oozing from underneath. The red sand served as a seamless transition from the platforms to the turquoise backdrop giving texture and a bit of surprise!
The band HITS rocked out during the presentation with our oversized canvas backdrop to match our favorite black and white pattern from the collection ( model to match ;)
Cowabunga! and now we are ready to wipe outttt!
