These edge notebooks from HAY are simple and superb. Gold edged pages are all a solid color. I personalized these for some special folks last month, writing names in white with splattered ink.

cindy sherman : for louis vuitton

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.
