the six chicest things about august
let's start inside.
this couple turned their home into a perfect pale palace for their art collection.
when one of their artists (they own galleries),
Austrian artist Otto Zitko,
was over for dinner,
they asked him to do a piece ON their walls.
after looking around, he apparently decided the only place worthy
was the ceiling.
he turned on the wagner, picked up his grease pencil,
so very chic, it makes our list at number 1.
that's from our friends over at bottega veneta,
who have decided that this little number, now in crocodile,
is a staple in a man's wardrobe:
pulling in fast at number 3
(even with the unfortunate relative timing of that phrase to the last one)
is one of my new favorite photographers,
who shoots erotic eastern european skinheads,
and amazing random shots :
boys in gucci bags!
and the last photo is called . . .
come on! j'adore!!
the website ilikemystyle.net
where i've been playing around, meeting new faces,
and being impressed by people's individual style.
it led to the creation of the new blog,
and tons of new inspiration,
and that's always pretty chic.
number 5 is the new line of underwear from the denim brand ACNE:
and number 6,
in a suprise last minute squeak-in,
is mary kate on the cover of british ELLE.
take a look. be surprised:
