Lilly Pulitzer for Target

One of the favorite brand of ladies who do lunch crowd at Palm Beach has decided to go mass market... for a limited time anyway.  Lilly Pulitzer is known for fun tropical prints with lots of gold accents and this target collaboration does not disappoint; lots of prints and lots of gold accents!  Unfortunately there is nothing for guys so I'm safe there.  However, LP for T does have a home collection which I'm excited about.  I love the glass carafe with a tinge of fuchsia on the bottom.  I think it'll look very good at night.  Those gold plated swizzle sticks and charms are perfect for parties so I'll picking those up.  White ceramic garden stools are great for outdoors and can easily keep clean.  Love that!  The hammock can be cool although I'm not so sure about the busy pattern and the fringes.  If I get that, I'll chop off those fringes for sure.  I like the Boom Boom teak beach chair but those pompoms will be lopped off for sure.  Lastly those cocktail glasses are so perfect for dinner parties.  They are a fun must haves.

Traditional venetian cup done in a new way

I love it when artists/ designers taking something old and address it in a new way.  That's what artist Fujiko Enami did.  She basically takes the traditional venetian millefiori technique but patterned it in a mid century style.  And voila!  A brand new way of producing traditional glass in a modern way.  Get yours at Sara Japanese Pottery.

The must have shoes this season!

Probably the cutest shoes ever made for adult male, these Fendi monster slip-on is selling out everywhere quick.  Unless you have a pair of large feet, I don't think it's possible for you to find another pair of these slip-on anywhere in US or perhaps in the world...

A piece of Herzog & de Meuron

Unless you are top 0.01% earner, you can't possibly afford to have a piece of Herzog & de Meuron.... until now.  The 2001 Pritzker Prize winners are doing an extension for Tate Modern in London.  The Starchitcts were known for their sublime architecture including the remodeling of a factory in 2000 that became Tate Modern.  Now 15 years later, they are building a new addition to Tate Modern in London.  Tate shop is selling limited edition brick sculptures that are shape of Tate Modern to collectors for 1450 pounds each.  While the sculptures are far cry from being affordable for everyone but they are certainly a lot cheaper than commissioning Herzog & de Meuron to design privately for one's personal projects.  There are only 250 of these sculptures available.  Get your while you can.
