What a treat to stumble upon architect David Baker’s San Francisco loft shot by Dwell. He doesn’t try to hide his bikes from the view and I really like that. Instead, they act as an installation of art and accent the main room. I love the high ceilings, the textured rugs and the Californian light that flows through.
As part of our selection #73 dedicated to cycling, I selected several products from the online store Bicy. Why? Because I love their collection that ranges from the most classic and traditional (like this British leather saddle by Brooks that has been around for over 100 years) to the most next level (like the LED lights that you can charge via a USB port or the plastic cup holder from Swedish brand Bookman). Lovers of bikes and aficionados of beautiful objects alike: check them out!
I discovered the New York photographer and blogger William Yan back in 2010 when I first lived in the city. I even met her at an event in the East Village and he snapped my picture (I need to find it!). Today I feel inspired by a picture he shot back in 2012 : this young fellow chilling on his bike. As part of our selection #73 we had to feature a cyclist. And that one is most nonchalant, isn’t he? Speaking on his iPhone, wearing a beanie, a checkered shirt and rolled up jeans.
I loved La Fonction‘s first release, La Fonction N°1. A mobile office of an exceptional quality and a flawless finish. The young French label is back at it with La Fonction N°1.2. This time, the portable secretary is smaller, but as technical. It’s the perfect format for the modern entrepreneur who carries his smartphone and laptop everywhere, and is as comfortable in meetings than at the coffee shop. And we love the camel / navy combo.
This week I feel inspired by the look of this bearded gentleman shot in Sydney by Giuseppe Santamaria from Men In This Town. I love the hat à la Gavroche and the rain coat. Because at this time of year, the weather can go either way. Oh and about the glass port, well that’s always in order.
