cindy sherman : for louis vuitton

Posted: November 6th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: apparel, art, things, travel | No Comments »



I was surprised and intrigued to see artist Cindy Sherman’s creation for Louis Vuitton’s Iconoclasts series, in celebration of the brand’s 160th anniversary. She created the Studio in a Trunk featuring drawers, a folding stool and adorned with vintage hotel labels — as well as a Camera Messenger bag.

Fitted with a luxurious vanity case, a Camera Messenger bag and a total of 31 drawers (to accommodate treasures large and small), the trunk’s interior dazzles with hues borrowed from the plumage of Mister Frida, the artist’s pet macaw. The Studio in a Trunk is produced in a limited edition of 25.

November is here and Paper Tastebuds is making a comeback! Slow and steady but I’ll be returning to the blog for more fun content this month after a couple months of being in a new-baby-bubble. I’m kicking it off with some kid stuff, which is sure to make an appearance more often now that its on my radar.

These are some funny and styling hair clips from Very French Gangsters, who specialize in eyewear for kids along with this stand-out accessory.

On September 4th, we brought this sweet gal Simone into the world. Needless to say, it has interrupted my blog routine for the month (and maybe every other routine as well) but I’ll gradually return to the daily post in October. Best disruption ever, but I look forward to returning to the ‘buds!
