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,
and voila.

so very chic, it makes our list at number 1.

number 2,
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:

oh yeah.
i'm wet.

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,
Slava Mogutin
who shoots erotic eastern european skinheads,
and amazing random shots :

come on!
boys in gucci bags!
pit bulls!
and the last photo is called . . .
sock monkey!

come on!  j'adore!!

number 4:

the website
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:

note to self - collect art AND artists, learn to cook, invite artist(s) to dinner, have them make fabulous scrawls in/on my home; resist buying elle because US fashion mags generally suck.

ilikemystyle - haven't made up my mind about this yet. ever look into ?
