Hanna Eschel is an internationally recognized artist whose work has evolved over many years and a wide variety of media. Oil, burlap, paper, marble and bronze have been some of the favored materials during her long and prolific life.

Total Control's "Expensive Dog" is a dope, post-punk angst fueled track. Typical System is one of the  albums released this year worth checking.

This will be the last Monday favorites before taking some time off next week. But, yes, you got it, this one brings an insane array of mish mash goodness: perfect menswear by Dana Lee, Studio Swine take on hair-ientalism and the wonderful handmade leather bags by upcoming dutch brand Labour of Art . It's all good.
"Menswear feels like more of an extension of my own personal style. Also, I’ve always had an obsession with trying to perfect basics and seemingly boring things. I find these things can shine more in menswear." I love you Dana ! Here several collections by New York based designer Dana Lee.

"Hair Highway is a contemporary take on the ancient Silk Road which transported not only silk but also technologies, aesthetics and ideas between East and West. Investigating the global hair industry in the Shandong province of China, Studio Swine followed the journey of the material from the people who sell their hair through to the hair merchants, markets and factories. The project documents this journey in a film and a collection of highly decorative objects." Studio Swine

 Labour of Art handmade leather bags, from Utrecht, the Netherlands, with love.


Simplicity. Honesty. It's all so simple. Reject conventions, reject negativity, and paths of (self) destruction. And I'm having a soft  boiled egg and a coffee this morning while I'm writing this down. And I like to be with you in the sun. And I like to walk with you when the lights are going down.
