The creative team at Fred Segal Finery in Santa Monica really outdid themselves with our display of ties for Spring 2011. It looks AMAZING and I’m obsessed with the phrenology heads! Thanks so much guys!

My dear friend the amazing Cynthia Altoriso sent me this amazing photograph of Yasutaro Mitsui with a robot from the early 1930’s. I’m totally obsessed with this!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
