From cheekbones to clothes, via architecture and product design, I can never resist some beautiful clean lines.

  1. thank god for your blog.

    we think the same, these are mindblowingly beautiful.

  2. These mood board posts are great I haven't not liked one the more architecture and furniture ones have been my favourites so far. And thank you for the comment on my blog it was really nice of you. I was wondering if you had seen Frédéric Chaubin's book of Photography on the Last days of Soviet Architecture I thought that you would enjoy it greatly.
    The Guardian did a piece on it

  3. Nice! I was thinking of doing some architecture too. I love how Jil Sander crops up so much, it is true her clothes are so architectural and yet simple, she's definitely in my top 3 designers!

  4. One of the best posts so far!(except the one's with Alexander McQueen :">)

  5. could i ask what year you were born in?

    this post is so reminiscent of my childhood, just the feel/mood of it.. although my memory now seems to have tainted this style as retro, whereas you have a great eye for making it seem so romantic? if that makes sense? Just slightly freaked out that I spotted you had posted the Bang & Olufsen TV set (ours is all black) which we have at home and growing up my brother and I would play with a similar toy ferrari model car you posted up too, which we never valued and teared out the plastic seats.

    I very much admire your style ethos, it's very intriguing I always look forward to your posts x

  6. Thanks for the comments!

    @elsydotcom I was born in 1990, so probably later than the design era you're referring to (as odd as my childhood was, I was not appreciating product design aged 5..), but I am rather obsessed with mid '80s to mid '90s design. Incidentally I think that Bang & Olufsen TV is one of the best designed TVs (and products) of all times. I would love to have one now, if only having a non-LCD/plasma TV didn't seem so perverse in 2011..

  7. @Michael M I am definitely going to check that out, it looks right up my street

  8. immense immense immense immense immense immense immense immense immense immense immense immense immense immense.

    i finally made it down to the barbican area last week, i've been wanted to go for a couple of years and i remember your post on it, took a couple of snaps of it too. as i said above, it was immense and made me feel slightly like i should be there(as i was walking on the upraised streets, nobody was there as well as not realising just how many people had accommodation there). i did a post on it. will have to check out these b & o tvs that you guys are chatting about too. the BT stitching is so cool, the words "why didn't i think of that" spring to mind. really enjoyed this post, will be coming back to it for sure.
