Nigel Cabourn by Tenue de Nimes: inspiration from the depths

Nigel Cabourn has a theme behind all of his collections, and will readily admit to taking his inspiration from all sorts of moments in history, from pioneers of arctic exploration to his grandfather's service during the Second World War in Burma. For his spring-summer 2011 collection he tells Tenue de Nimes that he looked to submariners for his pointers.

Which does beg the question, 'whatever next?'

Futura sunglasses: on your face

One thing you can say about Futura - whatever he turns his hand to, he does it with style, from a spraycan painting to a pair of handcrafted sunglasses.

Look at these sunglasses he's done in collaboration with Kaneko in Japan.

Mike Parker's office: A tick from me

Sometimes I look around at my office at home and think that maybe I ought to dispense with the toys and make it a little more in tune with my age. And then I come across this, the office of Mike Parker, the CEO of Nike.

Which would explain the proliferation of ticks, although it's interesting to see some of the other items he's got in there, like the model cyclists.

It's the kind of office my dreams are made of - and my nightmares. It must take weeks to dust it.

Oliver Zahm, Secret of Photographing Women: now you know

I notice that the Lady Gaga Supreme video (see post below) has been deleted, no doubt something to do with decency.

So as not to disappoint you I've found a sneak peak (call it voyeurism if you like) at Oliver Zahm's Secrets of Photographing Women exhibition, which should fill the titilation gap that the lack of a Lady gaga video left behind.

If you happen to be in LA, you lucky sod, you'll find the exhibition at the Leadapron gallery. I'm not, so I don't actually know where it is.
