WHEN ART IMITATES LIFE IMITATES ART

Monday 04.09.18

Art.  The bind that links generations and more rarely, centuries together.  It's a moment stood still.  Captured beauty of that place and time, locked into forever.  And as people in creative industries know, we often look to the past for inspiration to create, or even recreate, that moment again.  It could be a certain detail of the piece or sometimes it's the color or even, just the feel.  A way to reinterpret that very moment.  It's when art imitates life and life imitates art.  Our Vienna, a reincarnation of an Art Nouveau favorite...Gustav Klimt.

COFFEE BREAK

Friday 07.17.15

Who doesn't love a good cappuccino? Especially when you can enjoy one from a sidewalk cafe table, watching the people go by. This is one of my favorite aspects of the classic Parisian experience, and one that I try to find the time to replicate back home in the Bay Area. People watching has always entertained me. The unspoken messages given by the clicking heels of businesswomen and the hooded sweatshirts of techies. When I carry a Whiting & Davis bag, the eye-catching metal mesh is always a conversation starter. Both men and women want to know what it's made of and where I got it. Handbag enthusiasts will excitedly ask if it's by Whiting & Davis. This midnight metallic bucket bag is my current favorite - a great day to evening bag that is versatile yet statement making, a combination that can be hard to come by. To me, this bag gives off the vibes of a long history - a little bit flapper, a little bit Bianca Jagger circa Studio 54 - in a contemporary, on-trend crossbody bucket bag shape. It lends a little luxury to casual jeans and a tee, perhaps like a pair of heels would. And when the bag catches the eyes of those on the sidewalk, I feel good.
