I bumped into japanese artist Yayoi Kusama work when I was in London a few months ago, she had a great exhibition at Hayward Gallery, where Kusama's dots spread contagiously over every inch of an entire gallery before spilling out to the balcony. Even the trees on the South Bank have come out in spots. Kusama had been a pioneer of Sixties happenings, of polka-dot parades against Vietnam and she was an influence on Claes Oldenburg and Andy Warhol.
She works on feminist, minimalist, surrealist, Art Brut and pop art, all filled with obsession with repetition, pattern, and accumulation coming from a mental illness she struggled with for all her life.

Comme des Garçons launched the Luxe series...Luxe...pretty upsetting since they've always made perfumes that were affordable to everyone...but anyways this new Champaca Luxe fragrance... yes I do like it. The notes in it are champaca, white pepper, angelica, bird pepper, cardamom, tuberose, white musk and iris...Worth a try..

Keep it simple! This is Anthony Burrill's rule. He uses humour constantly to communicate in everyday life.
'Once you've got somebody smiling the rest is easy'
He made Campaigns for London Underground, Diesel and Hans Brinker's budget hotel along with shows at Tate modern and the Barbican.
I' ve noticed the appearance of head decor in recent months...thinkers in fashion such as louis vuitton have come up with the idea of the chic bunny girl head-band-hair-tie-thingy....lovely! And also Benoit Missolin has come up with nice designs...check out her site...

It smells sweet an fresh but looses its sent in the late aftenoon, it “transport you to the floral valleys of Madagascar the moment that vanilla orchids bloom at day-break”...
