Tron x Opening Ceremony

By Roni Brunn | November 17, 2010 | News


There have been so many short fashion films lately surrounding product launches.  I don’t quite know what to make of them.  Are they supposed to be extensions of editorials?  Are they high end commercials?  Does the script/plot matter?  Am I looking for character development?  Is it inappropriate to laugh?  Should I be looking at the clothes?

Chloé Aurore x Paddington Cross Pollination

By Roni Brunn | November 15, 2010 | News

This new Aurore edition from Chloé is making me nostalgic for the mid aughts, when the Paddington reigned as the it-bag.  In recent years, it-bags have been churning in a sickeningly quick rotation.  I miss the sweet stability of the Paddington era.

Syket – “Let It Heal”

By Roni Brunn | November 12, 2010 | Music downloads, News

So into this new Syket song.  It’s 90s shoegaze from an airtight time capsule.  Syket’s from northern Sweden but could easily pass for a Manchester band.  “Let It Heal” is the first single from their new EP Fish Band which features a remix mastered by Studio‘s Dan Lissvik.

Rentaro Nishimura – Queen of Hearts Ring

By Roni Brunn | November 10, 2010 | News


I want this plastic ring kit from London designer Rentaro Nishimura.  I like making things, but I get impatient when it comes to finishing them cleanly.  So having a kit with a finite end solves the problem of loose ends, rough edges, and messy connections.  I guess I can’t take much credit for putting together a toy and wearing it as jewelry, but I’m fine with that.  The ring would be super good even if it came out of a factory pre-assembled.

Ikea vs. Stelton – 1L Thermos

By Roni Brunn | November 9, 2010 | News

The 1L vacuum thermos is a classic from Stelton.  Designed by Erik Magnussen, it stands 12″ high and is made out of ABS plastic with a glass liner.

Ikea’s Behövd thermos also stands at 12″ and similarly fills up to a liter in its glass liner.  Its shell is polypropylene, though, and it was designed by Chris Martin and Magnus Elebäck.
