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

DSC_0394_2

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

bluelight

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

DSC_0037

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 $$. …

Breakfast with Luxirare

DSC_4685

One of my new years resolutions was to let you guys in on my life a little bit. I think one of the most intimate moments during the day is Breakfast, where you make the shift between dream state to reality. Mornings are always a struggle for me, I get up very early every day […]

Wallet Necklaces

DSC_0047

So, how was everyone’s New Years? All I can say is that I’m starting this year off slow and simple. This post and the design is pretty light but that’s exactly how I want to start off. I have some other projects I’m working on that are unrelated to this blog so give me some […]

Before another year ends…

Anastasia Radevich x Luxirare collabo jacket. Oh god you guys, I don’t know how much longer this blog will last haha. Just looking at these photos, it makes me really exhausted, sometimes in the studio I have those moments where I secretly (or at least in my dreams) escape my workspace, never see another piece […]

Jalouse and Ceci Magazine

IMG_1657

I’m constantly blown away by the amount of support I receive, no matter how small compared to the blogs that are in the 20k Alexa range. I don’t really know how it happened but I’m really passionate about the work I do and I’m happy that you guys share the same philosophy of luxury, design, […]

Paper Crocodile

DSC_0058

For a while I had all these gorgeous crocodile skins at my disposal. As I kept getting new ideas for other materials, these precious hides just sat in my studio, what can I say? I was empty on ideas for how to proceed…in fact I wondered, why did I even buy these? Well, fast forward […]

Luxirare Fall/Winter 2011: Convertible Shearling

DSC_0010

Since last year I’d been working on an outerwear series (on and off) and finally it feels like the right time to share. With this group I focused on taking inspiration from convertible cars, airplanes, classic aviator jackets and most important: our modern lifestyles. The main point of this whole thing was to really emphasize […]

Great Style: Scott Disick

scott

It can no longer be kept a secret. I look to Scott Disick for style inspiration. The cattle of it-girls with spindly legs and cheesy it bags just don’t do it for me. Some of you may think I’m crazy for thinking this, but he really does have great style. My mother told me for […]

Luxirare Shoe Repair

DSC_0409

These shoes that I had gotten from Etsy were pretty worn out when I first received them, but after a good 3-4 months of wearing them nearly every other day, straps finally slipped loose from the base and the shoes were rendered un-walkable. It happened to me on the street and after that night for […]
