the grand budapest hotel.

The trailer was just released for Wes Anderson's next film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and I could not be more excited.  Inevitably, any time he releases a new movie it becomes one of my favorites of the year (if not all time - I'm looking at you Royal Tenenbaums), and this one looks to be no different.   The film seems to cover the usual themes - murder, friendship, drama, romance - with the requisite absurdity and attention to detail and style that Anderson is known for.  Aside from what promises to be a stellar cast, story, and soundtrack, I'm loving the rich, jewel-toned colors too. Since it doesn't come out until March of next year, I now have to wait several months in anxious anticipation, but in the meantime I may have to pick up The Wes Anderson Collection to get my fix.

I'm excited to kick off my return to the blogosphere with a preview of the new collaboration between fashion powerhouse Nike and classic Oregon textile company Pendleton Woolen Mills.  The Nike N7 Holiday 13 Collection all started with a design for a gorgeous wool blanket - and while I'm normally more of a color girl, I love that they took a less traditional route and kept the palette tight in grays and black. Once complete, the blanket then inspired the other items - a his and hers tee, a windbreaker with tonal embroidery, and two sneakers with wool piecing - all incorporating the monochrome geo pattern in different ways.  Not only does the collection look good, but a portion of the blanket proceeds goes to the American Indian College Fund.  For now, my eyes are on those Air Force 1 Highs.  See more about the collaboration here.

i'm back!

After a bit of a long hiatus, I'm back to the blog!  Sometimes you just need a recharge and some time away from constant internetting, but I've been seeing a lot of amazing and inspiring things lately that I would love to share. So keep your eyes peeled for more art, type, fashion, music, movies, and color stories coming your way! Soon!
