FRESH KILLS

Discovered this store by John Agujar and Fredrick Spendlove in my neighborhood last weekend while walking back from the Brooklyn Flea and it is literally the most amazing furniture + design store I have ever set foot in. The pieces are whimsical, some retro, some modern, and some antique. Just about everything is gonna cost you a serious lump of change, but its always fun to look for inspiration! From their site:

“The core of the original collection was an exclusive offering of Milo Baughman deadstock unearthed after decades of storage in Thayer Coggin’s warehouses, complimented by a diversified collection of vintage & antique pieces embracing aesthetic movements from the 1890’s to the 1990’s, as well as new in-production pieces by Thayer Coggin, Dunbar, & Classicon”.

Check out more of their pieces here or visit the store on North 6th + Kent!

Proenza Schouler Pre-Spring 2011

I am dying for Proenza Schouler’s Pre-spring 2011 collection. Any high fashion designer who can turn a hemp poncho into something I would be willing to shovel out my bank account for is Number 1 in my book, which PS has been, for a long time. Those suede shorts are an incredible find to pair with lacy black tights or chunky knee socks until the weather starts to warm up, when you can lose the hosiery and turn the shorts into something totally different by pairing them with a loose tank and open-toe wedges.

And those satchels are just way too marvelous. I have one green purse in my collection and its been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Absolutely head over heels for that yellow one, too.

Shop the collection here.
