I spend a lot of time on the internet and as a result I've created a pretty weighty database of interesting things. Each month I'll be picking the best 7 I've come across. Why 7? Well it was more than five and less than 10.
1. The Bauhaus still serves as a source of inspiration for nearly every creative field which is why having an archive of 32,000 works accessible online is a good, good thing for everyone.
2. Experimental Jetset have a full archive of their work and texts online. Online archives are a huge passion of mine apparently, I even have a whole bookmark folder dedicated to them.
3. Podcasts have changed my life. Perhaps a tad overdramatic but they have added some productivity to my bus journeys. I have always gravitated towards books that share thought processes which is probably why philosophy seemed so appealing. Stephen West's Philosphize This! is definitely worth checking out if you want a pretty intense foundation on the subject.
4. Frieze this year was overwhelming like always. If you couldn't make it, or did make it but spent most of your time people watching (easily done) be sure to read these highlights.
5. I've never really lusted after a diffuser before and despite the current trend amongst bloggers I hadn't really felt compelled to buy one. Until I watched this video by MUJI. Ahh marketing.
6. To fashionistas you will be familiar with his work with Kenzo, to the art world you will probably just know him but to the designers and vernacular you might not. I recommend if you don't know Maurizio Cattelan already you start here with his troubling Toilet Paper.
7. The best fashion advice I can give, and I'll probably touch on this in the future is to go onto Mr Porter and toggle 'Outfit View' on. Instantly see hundreds of wearable outfits to either purchase or buy similar elsewhere. You are welcome 👞
