So Emma joined the Moma as a member. We went there the other day and I definitely want to catch a few of the documentary screenings they have organized over the next week.

Anyway, we perused the Orozco exhibit which was really cool. I wanted to post images of his notebooks which were part of the exhibit but they just don't show well at the size I can post them at! So I have posted some of his other work, I love it. The exhibit closes on March 1 so hurry.

Matt, I think you might like this...
Originally inspired by Sir Edmund Hillary and the 1953 Ascent of Everest, Nigel Cabourn created his 'authentic' line by recreating the original clothes that were worn on the climb, which were all military, customised for the climb...
His store in Japan made to look like an army gym looks pretty cool too

Ooh dear so i am not sure if this post will be out of place on our blog but I have been slightly obsessed recently with Everest, and the early climbers of the peak!

It is pretty cool, and there are some great images from the first summit by Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. I love the colors and landscape. I also love how the early attempts where made by guys wearing 'tweed' (first image, taken in 1925)!

Anyway here are some of those images.

I'm dreaming of....

Partners & Spade

As a big fan of how Jack Spade went about branding themselves I am an even bigger fan of the concept and work of Partners & Spade. They have recently updated their online presence and it shows off their work just great. They operate as a studio and store. Behind it, Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti. I am at a loose end right now so maybe they need a documentary making, design-led fund-raising professional in their ranks!!? Anyway, above are some images from their site, some found objects that are for sale in their storefront and some work they did for Hudson's Bay Company.
