Soldered to Perfection: The Lama Hourani Collection

If you should happen to be in Amman, don’t miss the chance to stop into the Foresight Art Gallery , the workshop and main showroom of the wildly talented jewelry designer, Lama Hourani.  I had the pleasure of visiting the gallery shortly after it opened in 2004, and was instantly overwhelmed by the desire to take everything on display home with me.  We guarantee that you will be as taken as we were by the originality of her pieces, which are as funky as they are classic.  Today, Lama’s work is being showcased all over the world, and her main source of inspiration for her wearable art remains rooted in the rich history, geology, and culture of her native Jordan.

Check out her art-to-wear for both women and men here.

Go With The Flux

Amidst the repaired jewelry, carelessly hung clothes and screen print t-shirts, it’s quite rare to find a vendor at the Brooklyn Flea market with impressive craftsmanship.  For this reason, Flux Productions stands out. Their expertly hand crafted bags made out of cork, leather, and felt look out of place (in a good way) and they lend much needed credibility to the Brooklyn flea. Check out the rest of the collection here.

We love Yours Truly and if we could, we’d probably rip and repost just about all the videos available on the San Francisco based site. Yours Truly features artists that are quite amazing and the thought out documentary style videos definitely lend ease to falling in love with these artists. Each video is constructed in a way that feels personal, humble, adoring and intimate. They also feature hand-written notes from artist that are often both quirky and honest. You can easily spend an unhealthy amount of time on this site. You’ve been warned…

It steals my thunder…

Hard Graft bags are not only functional, but they are also sexy as !!!.  Based in Vienna, Austria, they are known for their fine handmade (in Italy) leather and wool cases and bags.  We love the entire collection, but when we saw the 2unfold laptop bag we literally gasped.  One reviewer said:

The only negative thing I have to say about this bag is:
a) It doesn’t fit my camera.
b) It steals my thunder. You simply can’t walk around with this bag without people commenting on how nice it is

A few months ago, our cool friend and lucidreamers supporter in Paris put us on to 22tracks.com, which is more or less a jukebox with 22 genres and 22 tracks/genre. The playlists are curated by Amsterdam based DJs and their main objective is to present you with the freshest songs, beats, and artists in their respective genres. All the work has been done – you can sit back and discover new artists and genres with just one click.
