McNally Jackson has a great little trifecta of stores in Soho, and they’re all pretty great in terms of gift giving. The main hub is McNally Jackson Books on Prince St., but the shot above is from their very charming Goods for the Study Store right around the corner at 234 Mulberry St. Very sweet and thoughtful little trinkets and study supplies you aren’t bound to find at too many other places.

On the Street….Fashion in Detail, Mumbai

I loved the subtle way this man nodded to the green shirt he was wearing with a matching green stripe running along the bottom of his lungi. Brings up the question of whether a small detail like this is intentional or not. I like to think it is.

The Reading List…The French Ribbon

121514RibbonWebLow

The decoration of choice for an ensemble throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: The French Ribbon (newly out this fall), catalogues ribbons produced out of Saint-Etienne, a town once considered to be the world capital of ribbons and ribbon production.

 

These small strips of fabric added such vibrancy and distinction to their wearers clothing. Although most of todays fashionable opt for a ribbon-less look, these beautiful pieces do not stop from inspiring. Most importantly, they’re a welcome reminder to the dressing of days past.

The Screening Room….13 Lessons With Saul Leiter

121514SaulWeb1

Saul Leiter has become an icon of New York street photography and yet to me, he was a bit of a mystery (as I think he was to most people). So I was very happy to see this documentary on iTunes that seemed to just pop-up out of nowhere.

 

It’s not a great documentary, it’s more of a conversation, but it’s still always fascinating to see the simple way an icon goes about his work.

 

Watching the film I discovered that Mr. Leiter was apparently my neighbor! For 60 years he lived just east of where I live now. It would be great to think that at some point we passed each other out on the street. One of the truly great things about New York – you never know who might be living just down the block.
