i do like fur-sorry!!
mostly as an accessory (the BolaForge) and liked some of the fur i was seeing this fall!
i've always love helmut bags from the army navy store and thought a mongolian front one would be right up my alley!!

i ask my Nooch what fur bag he would like and suggested a silver fox soft messenger bag-i think we are going to fight over who gets to use it sometimes!!

3.1 Philip Lim really put out a spectacular mens and women's fall 2010


Braided cord: draped


More braided crod ideas i'd love-wrapped


My college friend Michael Amato heads up a tremendous lighting company in Charleston SC-
that inspired me to give thought to what i wanted in terms of lighting. I thought of a recent trip to the awesome shop MERCI in Paris where they sold BRAIDED FABRIC COVERED ELECTRICAL CORD-and remembered my summer's making lanyards and thought to use the cord in the same way.

I bought a bunch of these paper fibre bags at the .99 cent store and thought they'd be great in quality leathers and canvas'. With the removable shoulder strap attached with shank buttons it would be the ideal run around bag!!

The BolaForge!!

Inspired by my first meeting with the incredible artist, Scooter LaForge, New Years Eve in San Francisco many years ago-he arrived to a party in a slim jean jacket with attached fur collar-left quite a first impression!! I thought why not be able to wear it with any jacket, sweater, cardigan of your choice. So the hybrid BOLO Tie and Coyote collar is born-the BoLaforge!!!

Back to the Roots

i've been feeling very inspired to go back to the thing i loved doing so much right after school in my first design job as Susan Martin's design assistant at KIKIT Maurice Sasson-though i started in the women's division i went back later the head up the men's collection and really want some new men's sweaters!!!
