I still listen to Live Through This on a fairly regular basis, and my closet is still full of 90s-esque dresses, so the upcoming collaboration between Courtney Love and Nasty Gal is full of win for me. I’ll probably skip the tulle skirts and body suits, but those baby doll dresses are singing my name.
Not sure yet about the price point on any of these, but the line is due to launch January 14, so we’ll find out soon enough.
Nick Cave’s Red Right Hand, imagined as a Dr Seuss story. It fits almost too perfectly.

Take a little walk to the edge of town. Go across the tracks.
Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom and it shifts and cracks.
Where secrets lie in the border fires, in the humming wires. Hey man, you know you’re never coming back.
Past the square. Past the bridge. Past the mills. Past the stacks.
On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man in a dusty black coat with a red right hand.
He’ll wrap you in his arms, tell you that you’ve been a good boy.
He’ll rekindle all the dreams it took you a lifetime to destroy.
He’ll reach deep into the hole, heal your shrinking soul, but there won’t be a single thing that you can do.
He’s a god. He’s a man. He’s a ghost. He’s a guru.
They’re whispering his name through this disappearing land, but hidden in his coat is a red right hand.
One minute you’re all “Oh, I’ll log onto this amazing Design a Wig Generator that the Victoria & Albert Museum has made an make a couple wigs to post to Haute Macabare”….
and then five minutes later you’re all “ANTLERS!”…..
and then five minuets after that it’s “FUCKING DRAGONS!”…
And that pretty much sums up my life.
Marquetry: the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures.
Dutch/Belgian design duo Studio Job’s ‘Perished’ line uses old-world marquetry and inlay techniques to produce classic wood furnishings with a decidedly deadly twist.
Current silt inspiration : Ana Morodan. Red lips, liquid lined, capes on everything. More at anamorodan.com. (Girl also has a way with suit jackets I just don’t think I can handle).
Just a couple of Punisher-style chunky heels fro Filipino designer Kermit Tesoro (you may remember him from the meat shoes we posted a while back).
