Lux Interior - 8 months on & S.A.D.

Stumbled across the image 2nd from the top in my internet trawling today- AMAZING right! I felt strongly compelled to post a Lux Interior memorial, as I didn't get the opprtunity to in Feb when he passed... RIP, you will be missed. P.S. how Smokin is his wife Poison Ivy!!

April 77 Fall Winter 09/10

I'm loving April 77's Navaho/Americana flavour shown in the FW09/10 range... The heavily embroidered denim is my fave!!

So haven't posted for a while... been in a bit of a weird headspace. But as the Irish would say- No Bother!! I'm back, feeling as fresh & rejuvenated from the first real sunny days in Perth :) Oh and I think I'm in love with this guy... whoever he is!

Whip It - Drew Barrymore's directorial debut WOOP!!

The tragic death of artistic rebel Dash Snow has shocked many... I saw this memorial on & thought it was worth noting. RIP.

Strike a Pose!

Just finished watching "Madonna: Truth or Dare" for the first time. Can't believe I've never seen it before!! Her performing abilities are out of control. And her off stage personality is just as incredible... RESPECT! Always been a fan, but this blew my mind. Some of the costuming is seriously awesome- I'd wear it now!

Perfect combo!!

2 things I absolutely LOVE.... vodka & rock!! Absolut have teamed up with designer Natalia Brilli, who is known for wrapping things in leather to create this little baby! Can't wait to get my hands on a bottle :)

A Storm's a Comin!!!

This weekend one of my very favourite people is coming to town... Miss Elly the Noir Foxx will hit Western Australian shores for a weekend filled with commotion :) Stoked!!! Photographic evidence of some our recent escapades... x

Monday Schmonday...

So I was feeling a tad flat on this particular Monday... but was quickly rescued & rejuvenated by Juergen Teller's amazing pictures. He's pretty amazing right??

Happy Friday brought to you by...

Takes me right back! Jem & the Holograms- legends in their own mad 80s get-ups x

Passing the Time

Yesterday I entered some work in the annual "Clothespeg" exhibition organised by Onetrickpony. A5 works from Australia's creative types will be on display in Perth & Sydney in the coming months. Works are hung on the walls with a clothespeg at the top...

So last night I watched A Streetcar Named Desire for the first time. Wanted to know what all the Marlon Brando fuss was about!?! He was extremely dashing... but this scene cracked me up! I'd heard so much about it, but actually watching it- AMAZING haha!

It's all about Rita!

For some reason over the last week, 2 Rita's that have popped up & caught my attention in a big way!

First is the wacky and wonderful Rita Ackermann. Hungarian-American artist & fashionista. I've always dug her personal style & her work is inspiring!
Second was the classic Rita (played by Julie Walters) from the movie Educating Rita. She's a brash working class hairdresser seeking an education from an alcoholic professor (played by Michael Caine). Can't believe I'd never watched it!! Best line:
"Christ! My customer! She only come in for a demi-wave, she's gonna leave looking like a flippin' muppet!" CLASSIC!

Flashbacks of a Fool

Watched Flashbacks of a Fool the other night... check out this scene! Beautiful cinematography & super acting (Felicity Jones=amazing!). But the song was what really won me over. Need to work on my Roxy Music collection...

Been watching the series True Blood... it's quite intense! The opening credits are pretty confronting, but well done I think. Really eerie cultural depiction of the American South. The imagery, typeface & music are pretty amazing!

Come take a ride in my muscle car...

Came across this Pontiac GTO today & fell in lurrrve!! Sussed it @ Sweet Parisian brand/blog.

Photographer hailing from Minnesota Jennifer Tzar is an awesome talent to say the least! With 8 years in the industry, to say her client list is impressive would be an understatement!

Home grown

Check out rising star Aussie artist Bec Winnel @ her temporary blog site

Janis, Patti & PJ were robbed...

While I really enjoyed the Triple J Hottest 100 of all time over the weekend, I was flabbergastered that rock legends Janis Joplin, Patti Smith & PJ Harvey ALL didn't get a gurnsey :( Hack did a story this afternoon discussing the lack of female presence in the countdown & I found it really interesting. There are so many awesome female artists spanning all eras of music, let's start to give them the credit they deserve- starting right here! Tribute.

Aurel Schmidt WOW!

I've been tracking this lady for a while now. Her drawing skills are out of control! This work is from her 'Maneater' series. Here's her site: 
Her personal style is as excellent as her artwork :)

Style Icon of the week...

Musician slash dj slash model slash hipster slash janitor!?! Lissy Trullie has got her shit together. What can I say, look her up.

Out to Lunch.

Rumored to have stolen the lunches of her fellow artist/muso friends back in the day, Lydia lunch is a true bad-ass. Lead vocals of 'Teenage Jesus & The Jerks', she was a major influence on the No Wave music movement that happened in the mid 70s in NYC. Later in life her solo efforts led her to working with legends like Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore & Nick Cave. Props! & fierce style to boot... 

Desperately Seeking...

One of Vans latest masterpieces! The Rat trap is set :P

Navajo Stylin

Recently I've stumbled on a few amazing images influenced by Native American culture. The colours & graphic patterns definitely brightened up a sultry day in Perth :) Can't wait for summer!

Store of the week...

On recent travels I have been inspired to share some of my fave hot spots. Surface To Air in Paris is incredible! Head to 68 Rue Charlot in the Marais area, Paris to feast your eyes on not only the product but the sweet fitout...

Finally back on the blog...

It's been on the cards for a good few weeks now, so here we go with the first installment of stuff that's caught this Rat's eye lately :)
