adult books

business of fashion came out with their list of this season’s top 10 fashion films.  it’s no surprise that lanvin’s made #1.  but i really enjoyed this one from olympia le-tan as directed by spike jonze called “mourir aupres de toi”:

i think i need me one of these book cover clutches.  it reminds me of jillian tamaki’s covers for penguin that i posted about before.

that’s some naughty thread!

to watch the others, see bof’s original post.

damn you, penguin!

penguin books strikes again.  now they’re coming out with an embroidered collection called “penguin threads” by jillian tamaki.  what kills me is that they’re pretty much the same titles as what’s offered by their other designer collection i posted about earlier.  in fact, i just got my copy of alice’s adventures in wonderland and through the looking glass from amazon this weekend.

but these look beautifully crafted–makes me wonder about the price point.

i liked black beauty when i was younger, so that’s a possibility.  and the secret garden again.  damn you, penguin!  and damn myself for being such a sucker.

work in progress
