BILLY REID FOR LEVIS




I checked out this workwear inspired collaboration between Designer Billy Reid and Levis and really like the results. Some of the fits run a little short and boxy which is partially due to the old pattern blocks used, but the overall collection is very inspiring. There are plenty of wonderful details throughout the garments, but my favorite is a functional workers apron used as lining for a jacket. Check out the full collection here. /LINK

JCREW TIMEX 1600




I recently purchased this collaboration between JCrew and Timex and couldn't be happier. This watch is stylish and subtle. It's inspired by 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the home to such greats as, FDR and JFK. It's simple and modern but keeps a inspired vintage cool. Purchase it here. /LINK

LEFROY BROOKS

I was lucky enough to experience how wonderful the above shower appliance is while staying at the Crosby Hotel in Soho. I love its simple and nautically inspired design. Clean, easy to use, and accurate. I've never had such delicate control of the temperature of my shower. If I ever design my own shower, this is def going in it!

MOON IN WATER

I just can't get enough of this new Underworld track. The Whole album is pretty uplifting and awesome, but this song keeps coming back to me over and over again throughout the day. It will def be on the next JID mix, but in the meantime enjoy listening to it here.

PINCK-HEERKENS BY BOGERMANDILL






Here is a really cool house which once was used as a print shop. Bogermandill renovated this Amsterdam shop into a residence. Wood floors, brick walls, and steel beams keep the original interior present. See a full slideshow here on the Contemporist.  /LINK

NAME THAT CHAIR










When I first read about this app on Creative Review i couldn't decide if it was worth the $0.99, but after downloading it, i've found it's already provided plenty of entertainment for me and my design friends. Check it out here an test your own designer chair knowledge. /LINK

JAMITDOWN 16



Just to make your Labor Day weekend a little more special, here's JID 16! Who said summer's over? This mix has lots of variety to keep your endless summer alive. I also made sure to include a final track by none other than Justin Beiber. This track is remixed 800x times slower than the original version of his song "U Smile" and I'm happy to say it's 35 min. of ambient waves to lull yourself back into the sun soaked beachy feeling your not ready to leave behind just yet.
