It must be the late summer light that has had me taking lots of stripy photos lately.
Stripes are great and graphic and strong, but with a bit of colour, they’re a LOT more fun. I thought I’d look around the web for stripes for this week’s Best Things post.
Clockwise, from Left:
+ Kat & Roger’s adorable stripy bird feeders
+ Leah Singh’s Bar Technicolour embroidered cushion
+ Stripy stairs at Kate Spade’s London Pop up shop. I found them here
+ Striped pillows from Garza Marfa
A zig zag is a stripe on acid, for sure, but who can think of bands of colour without bringing Missoni into the conversation?
Clockwise from Left
+ Francoise Hardy in a striped T is just about as far away from Where’s Wally? as is possible, right?
+ J Crew Sequin Striped tank top
+ Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Flag High Top sneakers
+ Diana Moss’ impressive collection of striped T’s
Which brings me to the very reason that I’ve been thinking so much about stripes: My recent family reunion, for which I had made stripy blue & red Tshirts for all my brothers, their wives, kids and for my parents, in happy memory of our 70’s childhood spent caravanning around the country. That’s us on the left, and on the right, my nieces keep waving the Moore stripes high!
