I was a bit worried about what to post next, but thanks to Pip at Meet Me At Mikes i was presented with the perfect topic for today, and i think its a great way to show you some of the things I’m into! I was lucky enough to get a ton of fab birthday presents a few weeks back, so my list of ‘wants’ isn’t huge right now, but there are a few elusive things that remain in my wish list. So let’s take a look at what I’m coveting shall we?


Starting with the book ‘Naive: Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design’. This only just came out but i can’t wait to have a flick through. Check it out at Amazon! It looks packed with amazing work from some super talented people and there is also a great collection of previews over at Print & Pattern. The blurb states:

“Inspired by twentieth century American legends such as Saul Bass…Charley Harper and … Alexander Girard, these burgeoning designers are creating new and striking imagery using palettes of earthy and pastel shades, reduced strokes, patterns and shapes with a strong folkloristic element.”

Next, Stroboscopica albums! Oh my gosh, i do love some strange music. While rummaging through the racks at a great little music shop in Adelaide, i turned up a copy of Phase 6 Super Stereo: Introducing the Alternative Italian B-Movie Soundtrack and as soon as i listened to it once i was hooked. i needed more of these crazy, euro, organ freak-outs! After googling the label Phase 6 was released on i found there was indeed more organ freak-out to be heard. They’re discontinued, but they’re out there, and for $99+ they won’t be coming to my house anytime soon unfortunately.

Yves Saint Laurent Biarritz heart sandals are one of those things that, I’m not sure I’d really wear a pair, but oh how their existence makes my heart smile. In the parallel universe in which i own and wear them, I’m tanned, lithe and spend my days sunning myself on a yacht.. cruising around mykonos.. also, i look great in a kaftan. Like i said, parallel universe. Another reason i like them is they’re like the summer equivalent of the Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Melissas. So you can wear your heart on your toes year-’round!

Lastly, Alain Gree bento boxes. They’re really just too cute for words, aren’t they? I want to keep all kinds of tiny cakes and treasures in them and color co-ordinate my shoes with them.

So thats all for now, but never fear, i find new stuff to covet all the time!
