Weekday Entertaining

DSC_0298

So it’s after 7, you’ve had it with just about everyone and everything. You wonder, I’m going to have to repeat the same set of actions tomorrow, and just the thought of that may haunt you on your commute back home. If you are planning to have friends over for the night, that just may […]

Nude on Nude

IMG_3684

Recently I experienced a really nice coincidence of sorts. This Celine shirt has this nude strip running down the center front closure, and of course I had to pair my harness in raw leather (also nude) with it. And on top of that my friend created some artwork for my Rick Ross album (but actually […]

Chinese Take-out

DSC_0349

Yes you heard it here first. My favorite fast chinese dish is not something you’ll find at your regular old americanized take out joint. Lo mein, chicken with broccoli and moo-shu pork, easy to find. This dish I’m preparing now, Dried bean curd with yellow chives and pork is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite chinese […]

Netted & Pleated

DSC_0432

Took the liberty of taking a pleated knee length skirt and just wearing it as a mini dress. The nice thing about this harness is that it gives the dress straps and an empire silhouette which I really like. Just for the sake of harnessing a lumpy tent shape… Unfortunately this Luxirare cage purse below […]

Harness Remix

DSC_0265

I meant to include this 2nd way of styling these harnesses, but it was a photo overload. I think I’m done with posting 9 million photos in one post, unless I really have to. This one includes one of my absolute favorite blazers by Raf Simons. Truly brilliant the way he has the lapel tucked […]

Luxirare Harnessed

DSC_0284_2

After experiencing the reaction for the minivests a while ago and how well they were doing in the shop, I had to introduce something similar but maybe even more reduced in design. Starting off very slow, simple, and casual here.  One of the first requests I received after presenting these minivests were to re-produce them […]

Luxirare Motovest via Alexandra Spencer

Miss Spencer’s photo (above). I just had to share these photos self styled and shot by Alexandra of 4TH&BLEEKER. This might be a strange coincidence but I’ve been meaning to reshoot this vest because it is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve not been able to wear as much…And what do you know… I […]

Luxirare Motorcycle Vest in Action

Love to take my time with certain projects but I also like how Instagram moves like lightning. Photo above, fried oysters with a kewpie mayo based salad at Goat Town in the East Village. They were really delicious. And the salad had fennel in it, oysters + fennel = perfection. To the right my friend’s […]

Hooters: the new work lounge

DSC_0342_2

The last place I want to go nowadays for work outside of the studio is Starbucks. Sometimes I like to be outside of the studio to do some work, it is nice to be surrounded with a couple of friends, check e-mail, show each other stuff… This time I was uptown for some meeting and […]

iPhone Wallet Necklaces

DSC_4087

It has been quite a long time since I first thought of the idea behind this post. Do you remember when Steve Jobs passed? (Yes that was rhetorical, sorry)…. I planned on doing this whole tribute post, designing accessories around all of the beautiful gadgets he’s created. But I can’t rush such things, everything needs […]

Mobile Accessory

DSC_0407_2

When I first created this wallet necklace style, I just had one simple idea in mind. To find a solution for a personal problem of mine. Always running around like a crazy person, or working like a crazy person, I need to have important things like a credit card, keys, and cash close by. And […]

World of Whiskey and Leather

Lapel cut with perforated leather. Ever since this post, I’ve been getting requests for that particular style jacket. The thing with this first draft of the quilted biker jacket was that, well it was a rough draft. There were details I wanted to edit and comb over perfectly. And yes because I know that there […]

What is it about dogs that makes you feel like everything will be okay when you come home completely stressed and drained from work? My dog, she is always home to greet me with a wagging tail and genuine happiness. Humans don’t act this way, we tend to conceal our emotions, or we exaggerate them […]

Breakfast with Luxirare (Recession Style)

IMG_1261

Ikea food, what can I say? The only place that is less expensive than McDonalds. Ikea is probably one of the most powerful brands in the world, I’d have to say in terms of power, McDonalds takes the cake, but just imagine how many young struggling families Ikea has helped, from couples who have had […]

Valentine’s day dinner with Luxirare

DSC_0020_2

This post is for all my readers who are either getting over a painful breakup, recently divorced, or single. But you know Valentine’s day is just another excuse for couples to go out to dinner or drink (or both)… and why shouldn’t this apply to people who aren’t coupled up?? Valentine’s day is pretty open […]

Behind the Scenes (Oyster Consomme)

oysterdrawing

Nobody gets to see the craziness that goes on behind certain posts. (So many e-mails and comments full of curiosity..how it’s being done, who is doing it..are there 10 people behind this blog?? Does she have a personal chef, photographer, seamstresses, 4 assistants..) Hard hustling. That is all. Ideas are just coward projections, but the […]

Blue light

One of my favorite movies is Mulholland Drive by David Lynch. Reasons, love the switching between dreams to reality but really I think the point Lynch is trying to make with his films is that dreams are realities and realities are dreams, no difference right? Cause what you’re thinking at night when you’re sleeping …

Half-Sleeve Leather Hoodies

Hey guys. I’m so over everything right now, really. Weather’s cold outside, making my way out of dream state at 4-5 am, I’m just craving warmth under the covers, and I’m this close to jetting down south for warmer climates. Why can’t spring come sooner? This blasé feeling is definitely going to influence the way […]

Juice n’ envelopes

DSC_0003_2

New envelopes, and and new juice routine. Can’t go back to Naked now, these blueprint juices are insanity. Designed new envelopes, wanted to do something a little different. Transparent on the outside. Packaging on this juice cuts to the chase. Love how the ingredients are listed and printed on clear stickers. Downside, so $$. …
