The Prince of Prints

ImageAnother lovely coffee table book for my ever-growing wish list. This gorgeous limited edition book, published by Taschen, charts the visual history of print maverick Emilio Pucci. I love pyschedelia and I love fashion, so obviously I want this iconic tome for my collection!
Pucci Book TaschenIt’s a bit pricey at £44.99, but each book is individually bound in Pucci print fabric, and features hundreds of photographs, drawings, and candid shots from the archive of the Emilio Pucci Foundation. Below are some spreads from inside the book.Pucci GalaxyPucci BookPucci SixtiesPucci Pattern

Evan Hecox’s Paintings on Newspaper

Ideal HosieryI’m totally in love with these Evan Hecox pieces and his overall artistic style. Not only do these paintings make me want to own some of Hecox’s work, but they make me want to start making art of my own again. The fusion of painting and collage works so well – the use of gouache paint is so precise and skilled, but the vintage newspaper adds in a Dadaist influence which offsets what might otherwise be bland, figurative perfection. However, to my mind these compositions are perfect. I want them all!Bethnal GreenEvan Hecox Garry JewelersJJS Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge Evan Hecox

Lust / Lust / Lust

Here are some beautiful things that I’d like to own. All of them are quite masculine objects, focused around engineering and physics, but I’m so drawn to their polished surfaces and ergonomic curves.These iXoost bespoke docking stations are hand-crafted in Modena, Italy. The old exhausts of supercars form the structure, which is then coated in the metal of your choice. They are fully customisable and start at an eye-wateringly expensive £4,070.

The neon numbers and chrome base of this Nixie tube clock remind me of classic Americana fifties design, particularly Wurlitzer jukeboxes and Airstream trailers.

The Art Deco Henderson motorcycle, above, belongs to New Yorker Frank Westfall. The vehicle design has that whole distinctive Film Noir aesthetic to it, but I’ve never seen a motorbike like this before…it’s so lovely, I want to touch it.

Lee Broom’s Modernised Classics

Lee Broom is a furniture designer who combines lighting elements with classic styles of furniture to form a wonderful pastiche of interior design trends.Broom’s crystal bulbs are made in collaboration with experts at Cumbria Crystal, the sole remaining producer of handmade English full lead crystal in the UK. Each ‘bulb’ actually contains an LED light inside, instead of the traditional filament, and this means that the LED can be replaced when it finally expires.
Part of a limited edition of twenty-five, the ‘Electric Louis’ is hand carved in Mahogany, lacquered to a high gloss finish and then accented with neon lighting. This chair is so gorgeously feminine and sexy! It feels really weird describing a piece of furniture as “feminine” or “sexy”, but I think it would work so well in a look book for Agent Provocateur or an Ellen Von Unwerth photograph.Based on a classic Chesterfield design, the buttons on this overstuffed leather chair have been replaced with LED light fittings and capped with a fairground bulb casing. The lights can be programmed to move in the same way a fairground ride would, or they can be programmed to be still.
