Do Lectures: Geoff McFetridge.

David Hieatt and his wife Clare run the Do lectures: "The idea is simple. That people who Do things, can inspire the rest of us to go and Do things too. So each year, we invite a set of people down here to come and tell us what they Do (...) when you listen to their stories, they just light a fire in your belly to go and Do your thing, your passion, the thing that sits in the back your head each day, just waiting, and waiting for you to follow your heart."
...anyone who's kept up with this blog for long enough knows that I'm a mega Geoff Mcfetridge fan... so discovering this video was/is obviously hugely exciting... I hope you get as inspired by the lecture as I did.


WORTHIS bags. Melbourne.

These handmade bags (Melbourne) are constructed out of organic IKATE fabric (India): a run of Ikat fabric can take 6-12 months to complete, the cotton is harvested by hand then hand spun into thread... the thread is wound and measured, wrapped over an open wooden frame then each thread is individually dyed... the threads are then individually set up on the loom and woven. Works of art.

Appetite for Destruction.

Chris Jordan traveled to the Midway Islands last year to document the Garbage Patch. He returned with these tragically shocking images of Albatross carcasses bursting with plastic waste. In an interview with SEED magazine, Chris said, "what’s happening on Midway is richly symbolic. To me, the birds look like us: filling themselves with something that is not nourishing, thinking that it is, and killing themselves in the process. Isn’t that what we’re all doing as a culture? Our spirits are dying from our overconsumption of toxic plastic crap. As I stood over these birds, I saw a mirror of myself."

A.Hallucination. Mens Wear. London.

Hwan Sun Park and Chung Chung Lee are the designers behind A. Hallucination... their first collection entitled “The First Peal,” is inspired by the architecture of London."We would like to show the new ‘modern English dandy’ through our first collection. We think the mix of classic fabrics and modern design and cutting represent the true London. It’s like how the Saint Paul Cathedral and Millennium Bridge goes very well together.” said the designers.
