ART TALK…Tara Dougans

Tara Dougans was brought to my attention not too long ago by one of our savvy interns, and I haven’t been able to get her work out of my mind.  This Berlin-based digital artist, art director, and illustrator began her career in London where she spent 2 years doing art direction where her work was first noted for its hand-crafted, collage-style animation.  In 2012, she teamed up with nowness.com to launch her first short called “Beware of a Man’s Shadow,” to mark the debut of Men’s Fashion Week in London and has since collaborated with Selfridges, Karl Lagerfeld, Maison Martin Margiela x SHOWstudio, Iris van Herpen, Commons&Sense Japan, Telegraph UK, Amsterdam International Fashion Week and the Fashion Department at the Antwerp Academy of Fine Arts.

inspiration…SHIBUYA…

Here it is: one last color bomb before melancholia ensues and we’re subdued by the grays and browns of Fall.  This post is inspired by the eye gouging neon lights of Shibuya, Tokyo, a place I found to be both a blinding whirlwind of commercial chaos and a beautifully arranged rainbow of lights all at once.  Shibuya Crossing on a summer night is like entering a sensory overloaded dream state, and I’ll never forget it.

Vizors up, please…

inspired…SISTERHOOD

We often find friendships in the most unlikely places.  One day, when you least expect it, she’ll hit you like a ton of bricks, and you’ll never want to live a day without her.  Sisters are all made of star stuff.  So, hold onto her, whoever she may be.

Dedicated to my BFF. Safe travels across the globe, my friend.

The world is not ready for your beauty.
