YSL Rive Gauche in a new spotlight

YSL Rive Gauche

YSL Rive Gauche in a new spotlight | PAGES 02092018

Today, at the end of day the sunlight fel into a corner of the room I was working in. A beautiful natural spotlight drawn in, by the iconic design of Yves Saint Laurent’s Rive Gauche, it seems. I loved it first in 1987 and bought it again recently. Full silver circle.

Serendipitous.

Time Capsule

seventies

Resort Art | Palm Spring Pool party

I was surprised to see a picture I keep on my desktop starring in the Palm Springs episode of Stay Here, an American interior design series new on Netflix. It’s a show in which a stylist (Genevieve Gordner) and a property broker (Peter Lorimer) help home owners revamp their rooms for rent into golden holiday experiences. Make over. Make money. Better quality, better value, better revenues, better futures. Sending all their kids to college. And most results are stunning.

In this episode – the most luxurious problem property I have seen so far – they put the cherry on a fabulous Palm Springs mansion; fully decorated in style, a perfect time machine, putting the guest right back in the stylish sixties. This place was only partially redesigned, the owners are period crazy and had recreated many sets already. (Sets you can translate as selfie spots or instagram backdrops.) The pool area being the absolute lift off spot of the total experience.

The picture above is a piece the owner had longed for for almost a decade, and now, after the Stay Here-team had done their magic, it was the centerpiece in their garden room, looking great. A good spot for it to hang, full circle.

A Korean Breeze | Zico – SoulMate – Feat. 아이유

 

When I first heard this song on Spotify, I wondered what language it was, going by the tune you would think American maybe, some kind of rap? Smooth. Is it Pharrell, Timberlake? My mind went racing but just couldn’t make language of it. – Flashes from The Imitation Game went through my mind. A frantic opening of drawers looking for some code, that would fit and turn the song to english! – And then I recognized the asiansweet catchy chime. This was no english.

The only word I did dig out is soulmate.

To me it’s not the words but the music painting the picture. It’s upbeat, there’s a Spring feeling to it, breezing in a new start,

a Monday morning in fact.

Enjoy a Korean start of the week.

[ remember, I am listening to George Orwell’s 1984. ]

 

 

Sometimes I use the internet like an oracle, making me stumble upon an image or a text that I should take in. A message, a sign. An inspiration.

This image reminds me of a hilarious moment I had with my son, when he tried to hypnotize me. He was 10 and all over me, trying to hold my stare, whispering in a deep voice “Look into my eyes, look into my eyes..”

There’s something with Paul and Linda, Ringo and Maureen, George and Patty and John and Yoko.

Beatles wifes

PAUL AND LINDA | Stills from the video for Something.

The video of Something by the Beatles is a mix of what looks like homemade film, and shows moments in the early lives of Paul and Linda, Ringo and Maureen, George and Patty and John and Yoko, self directed it looks. A sweet quadruple love song.

Music video has changed.
