Res/Rei Eyewear

My new frames will be made in Italy, with love! When in London last august, i stopped by McClintock‘s to try some frames, one of them being the Nerone by Res/Rei, which i haven’t heard of before. At first i did not think the frames fitted me well, but i took a picture of myself to check later on.

But then I read this nytimes story about the house that architects and poets Arakawa and Madeline Gins just built in East Hampton. The house (is) officially called Bioscleave House (Lifespan Extending Villa). Its architecture...

The new punk?

update by m-c : As strange as this might sound after writing in previous posts about feminism, and trying to better define today’s “Feminism” by a new term, such as suggested with “Equalityism”, i just found out about The International Mens Fashion Freedom Network. Since chris posted this article about men clothes being boring, many links are coming to Vu d’ici via the IFF website. About IFF :...
