Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Design on Thursday 20 December 2012

Fast-emerging as London’s favourite womenswear and accessories designer, Sophie Hulme is known for understatedly chic bags. Recently, she teamed up with the iconic luggage brand Globe-Trotter for a second time adding new sizes and injecting more colour along with her sharp, modern aesthetic to her existing range for them. As she said in an interview with Vogue UK: ‘Globe-Trotter is such a great company that I didn’t want to see the collaborations end after just one season’. For the first time in Globe-Trotter’s history, Hulme re-designed the handle for her Autumn/Winter 2012 collection (pictured below) to include her signature brass hardware.

Weird Japanese Beauty Products

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Products on Tuesday 20 November 2012

When it comes to ‘weird’, the Japanese have proved again and again that their imagination knows no no bounds. Especially when it comes to beauty enhancement. Forget anti-wrinkle creams and a healthy, antioxidant-filled, low cholesterol diet. Think instead of a gadget that lifts your nose up by applying electric vibrations, a Hannibal Lecter look-alike mask to get rid of smile lines, or something that fits like a drain plug – or an arcane sex toy – in your mouth to exercise the cheeks. How low can your self-esteem go?

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Photography on Monday 19 November 2012

Their intention in juxtaposing a frighteningly antiquated excerpt from the Latter Day Saints handbook, condemning sex between anyone other than a married man and woman, with images of two men looking very much like stereotypical Mormon missionaries demonstrating sexual positions, is clear enough.

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Design on Monday 29 October 2012

A Tiny World In A Tiny Bottle: art in bottle by Akinobu Izumi

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Art on Monday 22 October 2012

Tokyo-based architectural model designer, Akinobu Izumi, wanted to do something creative in between her building projects. Using her skills and tools, she started making intricate and beautifully crafted miniature sculptures within tiny tiny glass bottles. Izumi starts by drawing what she wants in each bottle. She then draws the cutting directions using a computer program for her guided paper cutting machine to make a few test cuts. After many adjustments, a precision cut can be made over and over again. Assembling each item in the tiny bottle, using special glue and tweezers, is a painstaking process. Depending on the complexity of the design, it can take as long as a few days.

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Art on Saturday 13 October 2012

After graduating from the distinguished Tokyo National University of Fine Arts in 1982, Hirotoshi Itoh felt he was destined only to take over his father’s masonry business. He spent several years working with fine metals before turning his attention to stones, which he found by the river bank near his Matsumoto home.
