loving lanvin (and alber) longtime...

if you have not yet laid eyes upon lanvin's latest music video that's doing the rounds amid fashion sites then pat yourself on the back dear readers, you obviously have tunnel vision. the video is the subject of my latest posting for australian vogue and - wait for it - my epic meeting with the brand's dynamo creative director, alber elbaz. see it HERE. because i've said it once and i'll say it again: love conquers all.

rose apodaca rules!!!

oh hell to the yes! check out this sassy / semi-retarded shot of me (left) when i first arrived in L.A back in 2007 posing alongside the amazing rose apodaca (author, famed retailer and L.A legend) and west coast design talent jazzy shockers. a lot has changed since then but my total respect for rose apodaca remains the same and so imagine how totally chuffed i was to discover THIS posting on her blog earlier this morning. much love to you rose apodaca: beloved lady of L.A!!

loving: artist eric yahnker's 'los angeles with gloryhole'...


in travel mode...

1. my favorite book by my favorite writer: new yorker art critic, peter schjeldahl.
2. red ray ban sunglasses - because i've never met eyewear more suited to my spirit than this.
3. apivita lip balm - long live greece!
4. 2 x ipod shuffles filled with assorted DJ mixes from aussie radio show NOISE IN MY HEAD.
5. uslu airlines x bernard willhelm orange nail polish (because chipped nails are for sissies).
6. canon G10 camera - because without it there would be no DELINLEE DELOVELY.
7. DELINLEE DELOVELY business cards (stars and stripes baby, stars and stripes..)
8. apivita orange face mask (take care of your skin and life takes care of you).
9. korres rose serum face and body moisturiser (repeat sentiment above).
