The current show atMilk Gallery shows yet unseen photos of Andy Warhol's Silver Factory. Billy Name's photographs from this period (1964-68) are one of the most important photographic documents of any single artist in history. Billy lived in a tiny closet at the Factory. He was responsible for the legendary ‘silverizing’ of the space using aluminium paint and aluminium foil to complete the installation. When Andy gave Billy a Pentax Honeywell 35mm camera, he took on the role of resident photographer and archivist.
Last Friday I finally replaced my old Casio with a new watch from Swedish brand Daniel Wellington. All their styles are very classical and sophisticated but I chose the most simple of them all - Classic Sheffield Lady in rose gold. I love how it's rather big and outstanding yet goes with absolutely every outfit.

Approximately thirty ensembles, many of which are being exhibited for the first time, reveal the impact of high-fashion standards on the sartorial dictates of bereavement rituals as they evolved over a century.
Had a very quick and intense trip to Florida - saw nothing but palm trees and sunshine... not even sure if there's more than that there, however the location was perfect for suburbian themed shoot for La Garconne online store. The story will be out in February.
Long story short, I met Jessica when we were both about 14-years old bloggers living in our small hometowns, she in United States and I in Estonia. The same way I met Kelsea. When I first came to New York 3 years ago I met up with them separately, only to find out that they also know each other. Small world! Now three years later we came together to finally collaborate on something. Luckily Kelsea happens to be a brilliant photographer, Jessica talented stylist studying in FIT (The Fashion Institute of Technology) and I have the ear cuffs. Not surprisingly we ended up shooting a story together.
Are you ready to line up for Alexander Wang x H&M already this Thursday!
Practical as I am, from whole collection, I chose just this simple grey-black sports bra. This and the water bottle have been very useful now when I took up hot yoga (Bikram yoga). It is challenging as hell as all the poses are done in an heated room (40 degrees Celsius) for 90 minutes. After just two weeks it's hard to tell about all the benefits promised but my skin is definitely glowing and I've learned how to love and appreciate my body more. Before I would have never worked out just in shorts and a sports bra. I just didn't feel comfortable. Now I'm so used to this that I even don't mind seeing myself from mirror for 90 minutes in a row. It's all about pushing your limits and not giving up. Also, as it's not a good idea to drink coffee, ear starchy and heavy foods prior 2-3 hours to the class, I've started drinking much less coffee and thinking what to put into my body and what not.
Recently I teamed up with talented car designer and artist Björn. Besides designing cars in Germany he does very unique paintings using his special tape-painting technique. For the latest work he was inspired by my ear cuffs in big metropolitan cities and the girl in the picture is wearing the one with pearls. The painting is currently exhibited in Berlin, can't wait to see it in person!
Oscar de la Renta, the Dominican-born fashion designer who spent more than 50 years dressing royalty, Hollywood celebrities and U.S. first ladies, has died at the aged of 82 after a long battle with cancer.
My favourite quotes by Oscar de la Renta
"I always say: To be well dressed you must be well naked."
"The great thing about fashion is that it always looks forward."
“The qualities I most admire in women are confidence and kindness.”
“Walk like you have three men walking behind you.”
The installation is a vibrating sound experiment that aims to transform the architecture into animated sensible form. Conceived as a sound object that absorbs and contrasts the site specificity of the Storefront Gallery with abstract, spatial, formal and acoustic variations and compositions, Situation NY raises questions about context, sensorial readings, estrangement and the uncanny tangentially resonating with contemporary debates around the ontology of objects.
