I nearly lost my shit when I saw these images of Daft Punk all suited up in these custom tuxedos designed by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent. That’s a mouthful of awesome. Look at those pictures! Are you freaking out with me?
I already had a freaking-out-over-Daft-Punk episode a couple weeks ago when I heard their new track Get Lucky. My poor neighbors had to endure the song blasting from my speakers on repeat. But hey, at least it’s not Hanna Montana.
These photos shot by the marvelous Mathieu César (buddy, you walk among gods) were taken at the Sheats Goldstein Residence, a modern oasis in LA. All the elements in this shoot are insanely cool, from the location to the styling, you can tell Daft Punk are – as per usual – ahead of the trend with their signature intergalactic fashion and tunes.
Mind you, I did hear the whole album and I am still making up my mind about it – but that’s another topic of conversation. You should head over to CF Fashion Book, where you can see more pictures and read Sky Ferreira’s interview with the galactic duo (fuck me, why didn’t I get invited to this party?!).
How great are these photographs by Bryan M. Ferguson? There’s nothing better than mixing photography with graphic design – the results are always so pleasing!
The subtle pastels are – once again – a timely reminder that summer is almost here! I know pastels have been around for some time now, but seriously, who can say no to them. And most importantly, who can say no to summer! (god, can you tell I’m itching to get some sun? haha).

Hi friends! I’m back from a much needed, long weekend. I went to visit some friends in the Canadian wine country (I’ll be sharing some pictures later this week) and got to enjoy a bit of pre-summer weather.
Today’s post totally reminds me of happy summer memories. Full of popsicles, coconut tanning oil, and sandy feet. These paintings by Michael Ward are paintings of photos he took throughout the years, in different beaches around California. You can feel the nostalgia in every detail – the retired old man relaxing in his chair, the bright store signs, the lush greenery. And of course, all tinted with delightful pastels.
Can you feel the ocean breeze? Just stare at Michael Ward’s work for a bit and I bet you’ll be transported to your favorite summer spot. Enjoy!

Oh Alana Dee, how I love thee. Brilliant work, yes? The patterns and fashion elements are – as per usual – one of my favorite combination. I swear I was a clothing designer in past life, that’s the only reasonable explanation with clothes, pattern, and design.
Miss Haynes has tons of delightful images on her tumblr. It was actually kinda hard choosing just a few of them for the post. My personal favorite is the 3rd one, the one with the 70′s inspired look and the groovy black bubbles around it. So dreamy! I bet a shirt printed with that image would look fantastic. Heck, a whole line of fabric with Alana’s patterns would be quite trendy.
Do you also day dream a lot about different designs that would look good on clothing?

These first four are all about getting ready for summer, embracing the warm weather, and getting your sunnies out!
1: the popsicle project is an instagram tag that’s totally up my alley.
2: Drooling all over this poster created by Ice Cream For Free (coolest studio name, right?).
3: coffee meringue ice cream cake. ’nuff said.
4: this illustrated palm tree is making me want book a vacation. like, right now.
5: a floral wallpaper to satisfy our addition.
6: the coolest rack I’ve seen in a while. I want my whole closet to look like this, please.
7: in love with this handmade ceramic plates and rocks. Want them all!
8: Ben Dearnley’s photography is going to make you salivate – a lot. Consider yourself warned.
The goddess of MoMa and mother of artsy-realness, Tilda Swinton, has shot an incredible editorial for W Magazine’s current issue titled ‘Modern Beauty’. I cannot think of a better person for this photo shoot other than Tilda herself (yeah, Tilda and I are on a first name basis).
As an added bonus, here’s the interview W magazine had with this iconic woman. Seriously, some people’s creativity seems to come from outerly worlds.
You gotta love when an artist uses bold brush strokes to create colorful portraits. Francoise Nielly has a very peculiar style influenced by her past creative experiences and family life (her father was an architect, so I get the feeling that these structured portraits that are almost like rough, faceted sculptures, are influenced by him).
Are you a fan of this type of portraits? If so, later on the on the blog I’ll publish a couple other artists with similar aesthetics so you can get an idea of how this style is currently evolving.

We are all made of stars – that’s the theme for this ‘Star Dust’ series by photographer Molly Strohl. Guys, she’s only 20 years old and she’s already creating crazy-good work. I love how on her bio she mentions that she “takes photographs in order to not go crazy”. Molly, you’re on the same boat as all of us where art and creativity totally save the day.
Can you imagine what the world would be like if people like Molly didn’t have a creative outlet of sorts?! Ah! Don’t even wanna think about it!

Another GAH! moment. These pastel-toned photographs by Ward Roberts are what dreams are made of. His skillful lens captured the beauty of several courts that were originally built one with sole purpose: to host a bunch of people kicking, bouncing, or throwing balls at each other (a.k.a sports). Armed with his camera, Ward Roberts was able to take the mundane out of them, turning each court into a fantastic architectural portrait.
This whole series makes me want to scout some of the courts around here, I bet there are some hidden treasures waiting to be discovered!
