It’s Friday, Friday, Friday! Time to start the weekend with three things I’m sure you’ll like. Let’s get this blogpost started with…neon socks?
A Woman of Advanced Style in Neon Socks
I have to admit, I felt a like a bit of a paparazzo when I took these pictures last night. And at first, I wasn’t really sure what I’d do with them. This morning, I decided to post them online – after all, who can resist this fab looking woman of advanced style in her pink neon socks and yellow neon scarf? Speaking of paperazzi by the way, I watched the Ron Galella documentary on Netflix last week. It’s called Smash His Camera and is well worth checking out! Oh and if you’re into this sort of thing, check out the Women of Advanced Style Blog by Ari Seth Cohen!
The Gallery Restaurant at Sketch London
Call me whatever you want, but I love a pink ceiling and I’m not afraid to admit it. In fact, I’ve blogged about pink ceilings before. Not once, but twice. And so my heart skipped a beat when I saw the new design for the Gallery Restaurant at Sketch London by India Mahdavi. Check out the combination of the two tones of pink behind the bar – pretty daring!
It takes a village to inspire Ettore Sottsass
Speaking about Sketch and India, take a look at the Indian village of Tirunamavalai on the Sketch42 blog. Ettore Sottsass, the Memphis designer I’m still besotted by, toured India in the 1960’s and judging by the pictures you see here, it looks like he remembered what he see and used it for his later designs. You can find more Memphis Design by the way at the Designmuseum Gent.
