bryn & lou

leave a comment »

a few years ago, deena, from strong kent wythe, and i started this little company, bryn & lou (tiny toys), named after our little dogs. we made block prints, organic toys, cat dancers, mobiles, and basically whatever else we came up with. we even had a great write up in lucky magazine. then i moved to los angeles and it was kind of put on hold. right now we’re so busy starting our own companies (and blogging) that it’s hard to find time for it…but the good thing is that we know bryn & lou will always be there, whenever we feel like picking it back up, in any way we desire. anyway, my train of thought led me to the webpage, which deena brilliantly designed (and i think effortlessly, too). it’s an image i will never tire of because it continues to inspire and mean so many good things to me…

i’ll be in miami for a much-needed mini-vacation during art basel (12|4|08-12|7|08), and one of the few things i’m making a priority (besides sun) is checking out this jose davila installation for renwick gallery. it will be at art positions, which is off the main site, on the beach front. art positions gives 20 young galleries a shipping container to showcase their artist(s). in davila and renwick’s case, the container is the art. i’ve heard a lot about it from my friend, christine, who manages the gallery, and can’t wait to see it in person. i’m not well-versed in art in any way, but i think from this image, it looks like perfection.

if you are around, please come by.

i really loved this model, debora muller from one management. she was so sweet and professional. she barely spoke any english, but she did a great job working with our photographer, matt wilson. there must be some model/photographer language that i’m not privy to.

wrap dress in silk charmeuse. you can’t really tell here, but it’s so short and silky that it’s terribly sexy.

from top to bottom. i would love to wear this on a breezy fall day. actually, minus the sweater, i could wear it all-year-round.

philip lim furry sweater

acne ruffle bouse

organic pleated trousers

antik batik shoes

all from la garconne. of course, i might have added something from duskin if we were sold there. alas, something to aspire to.
