WW145:THE HIRSCHFELD SPECTACULAR, PEE-WEE and LES MIS!

5 things that I am enjoying this week……..i hope you love these too!!! Sorry Michelle- a lot of this is VIDEO this week!!!

1.) I really enjoyed this. Yes. it is old…but I still love this!! In response to Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries not wanting "not so cool" kids or fat women to wear his company's clothes, Greg Karber has come up with a funny way to readjust the brand……….
Funny. And BRILLIANTLY SMART!!!!!

2.) Hälssen & lyon has created FANTASITC gift idea!!!!!! So they created ‘the tea calendar’. Yes…..a calendar MADE OF TEA!!!

Each of the 365 days in the year are represented by a unique flavor and should be torn from the booklet style folio one at time and dropped into hot water, where the small, dated piece dissolves and brews into a drinkable beverage.


The singular layers were compacted into 1mm thin sheets and configured into printed pages. for now, the annual calendar has been developed as limited special editions for the company’s business partners.

COME ON!!!! I love this idea!!!!!!
(thanks Design Boom for this one!)

3.) Are you a fan of 80's cult have Pee-wee Herman? Or have a super fan in your family??? I think you need one of these:
The Official Pee-wee Herman Fun Book is an “old school” interactive, wild ride through Pee-wee’s life, featuring a pop-up Playhouse, Pee-wee rub-on tattoos designed by Chris Carver (Miami Ink), Pee-wee-inspired art postcards, an official Pee-wee spinner game, Pee-wee “Colorforms,” lots of cool stickers and a very cool Magic Screen (think 1960’s Magic Slate) with a pen that you can actually draw with and lift up the acetate to erase. Absolutely chocked-filled with color and pictures, this First Edition, limited run is a MUST have collectable for every Pee-wee fan.



or how about Pee-wee's Balls:


OR THIS T-SHIRT(hint hint Santa-- Robbie Like-y)!!!!



 So…go to his store…and buy a t-shirt for your  something for a friend Rob.

4.) This is ANOTHER reason I NEEEEEEED to go to NYC right now! I want to see Woody Allen, Carol Channing, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Stiller, Sarah Jessica Parker with Matthew Broderick, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Bernadette Peters are appearing as three-dimensional Al Hirschfeld drawings enjoying a festive dinner party in the New York Flagship Henri Bendel store window this holiday (Henri Bendel, 712 Fifth Avenue at 56th Street)!



The "Hirschfeld Spectacular" is a tribute to the late illustrator who is considered by many to be the greatest line artist of the modern era. In addition to the sculptures created from Hirschfeld drawings for the window scene, Al Hirschfeld’s original line art is featured throughout Henri Bendel, including a two-story-high presentation of illustrations.

For more than 75 years Hirschfeld drew luminaries from Broadway and Hollywood for “The New York Times” and almost every other notable publication. Full of wit and verve, in distinctively bold and often intricate lines, Hirschfeld captured the greats with his pen. Actors, singers, dancers, producers, directors, and playwrights, classical musicians and rock bands-from the 1920’s on, being “Hirschfelded” signified that you had arrived. Famously, Hirschfeld drew while seated in a barber’s chair in his New York City studio. Hirschfeld continued to work daily until his death in 2003.






Henri Bendel has worked hand-in-hand with Hirschfeld’s exclusive gallery, the Margo Feiden Galleries Ltd., New York, to create a truly unique presentation of the late illustrator’s work for their holiday windows. The displays in the window and throughout the store were hand sculpted by Tom Carroll Scenery, with the art direction and assistance of Henri Bendel Assistant VP of Visual, Gilberto Santana.
above: The HIRSCHFELD SPECTACULAR! Poster (Size: 37"h x 28"w) is available for purchase. Until January 2, 2014! 
LET'S GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.) Finally…..I was at a Musical Theatre themed party last week. I was surprised how much everyone at the party LOVED Les Misèrables. LOVED. I was a little 'meh' about it……..but for those people who are cray cray for LM…...I give you THESE…I LOVED these!!! Enjoy!!!!!
