MINNAPALMQVIST

“My garments get their inspiration from the exploitation of the female body within fashion and western society, and symbolize the meeting between the socially accepted body and the fleshy, ever changing body we actually have.”

Pura Vida

Pura Vida

I got one of these cute bracelets from Pura Vida at Coast (today is the last day of the show for all you Miamians!), put it on and forgot about it . . . it’s just so small and simple. And apparently eye catching. People kept asking me where I […]

Peter Bristol Clip Bag

Peter Bristol Clip Bag

    Usually, when I break out the binder clip at work it means I’ve written too much . . . Because I usually approach them with dread and apprehension (a former supervisor of mine actually refused to read work-product that could not be contained within the confines of a staple), […]

Cute DIY via Fine and Feathered

Cute DIY via Fine and Feathered

I know, I know, its been forever since I’ve written. New city, new job, new everything. In an effort to take it all in and embrace change, I have sacrificed reflection and art, which is never a good thing. Yoga has helped (more on that later, I am totally going […]

Branch out

Branch out

I am fascinated by these wooden clutches from Tesler + Mendelovitch. These architectural look, artisanal ”wood skin” purses are constructed from 100% wood, 100% hide. While the geometric surface design provides necessary flexibility, the wood texture is soft to the touch, at once both delicate and wear resilient. Timeless yet […]
