Picking up clothes for the tomboy shoot coming up in the machine shop. First some gorgeous knitted legwarmers, sweaters, hats and scarves from Ouef's studio near the Gowanus Canal in industrial Brooklyn. Its is in an old textile factory and had gorgeous light and high ceilings. Then back on the train and onto Williamsburg. Sweet William is a perfectly arranged space with interesting tableaux everywhere you look. The owner, Bronagh selects beautiful independent lines. It was hard to choose but eventually we left with things from Nico Nico, Dagmar Daley, Finger in the Nose and Talc. Sweet William has an online store so you can shop there from anywhere.
Next we went to the city to pick up denim jeans and jackets from Earnest Sewn's Litl Earnie kids range. Thier shop is just next to the new highline park designed by my favorite architects, Diller+Scofidio. The park was once an elevated train line and it winds through Chelsea like a strip of prarie, under and next to all kinds of great buildings. It is fun to wander it or just to sit and watch the parade.
