This might quite possibly be the most transcendental thing I have ever seen.

Sheer Silk Hooded Dress, $129

Veteran designer Kaye Costello’s Etsy shop, Mirimirifashion, chooses to do only a few things- but to do them well. And the main thing she does is hooded dresses with some shrugs and boleros scattered in, focusing on that fine line where fashion meets cozy. As someone that lives in the perpetually chilly SF Bay Area and spends a great deal of time bitching about the lack of cute long-sleeved dresses, I pretty much want everything.

Updates from Kofta

We’ve mentioned our love of Konstantin Kofta‘s eerie leatherworks in the past, but these pieces seemed like as good an excuse as any to revisit his like of backpacks, satchels, and purses- many of which have unique fragrances worked into the leather.

Finnish illustrator Vladimir Stankovic creates portraits and biological illustrations inspired by mythology, cryptozoology, science fiction, and fantasy. I am particularly enamored of his portraits of The Greys, but his Etsy shop offers a wealth of prints ranging from the Abominable Snowman to some wonderful mash-ups of cephalopods and beetles, the Cephalopodoptrea.

San Francisco Event! Paul Koudounaris at Loved To Death

Paul Koudounaris Memento Mori at Loved To Death San Francisco

To celebrate the release of Dr. Paul Koudounaris‘ highly anticipated third book on the subject of the death in sacred context, Loved to Death in San Francisco will be hosting a book signing and photo exhibit from images from Memento Mori.

Through photos taken at more than 250 sites in thirty countries over a decade, Paul Koudounaris has captured death around the world. From Bolivia’s “festival of the little pug-nosed ones”, where skulls are festooned with flowers and given cigarettes to smoke and beanie hats to protect them from the weather to Indonesian families who dress mummies and include them in their household routines; from naturally preserved Buddhist monks and memorials to genocide in Rwanda and Cambodia to the dramatic climax of Europe’s great ossuaries, Memento Mori defies taboo to demonstrate how the dead continue to be present in the lives of people everywhere.

Loved to Death is located at 1681 Haight St in San Francisco, and will be hosting the signing and exhibit on Thursday, April 16 from 6 – 8 PM.

Koudounaris’ previous two titles, Heavenly Bodies and The Empire of Death, are both exquisite collections of his photographs of the reverence of death in cultures. The forthcoming title, Memento Mori, will be released in April. All three titles are available for purchase or pre-order through Loved To Death.
