inSync | Iris Saar Isaacs | The Dancing Line | October 15.14

  • There are times when you don’t really need to say much about a collection. You just need to click through each and every picture and enjoy what you see.
    That’s exactly what I did the minute I received a heads up on Iris Saar Isaacs’ brand new creations.
    Iris, the one behind inSync, has a distinct fingerprint when it comes to her “lined” accessories and that’s exactly why I’m drawn to it time after time. After all, I can’t resist a well designed, bold yet minimal (in its own way) accessory.
    FYI, you can visit my previous inSync posts and read my interview with Iris, right here.

Imelda Shoes | Hello Sunshine | October 6.14

  • I don’t really need an excuse to write about shoes. In fact, if it was up to me, I would write about them 24/7.
    And as much as I love writing about shoes, I love buying them. I know, it’s a problem, but one I don’t mind dealing with.
    I’ve been meaning to write about Shani Mifano and her Imelda Shoes ages ago and I can’t believe that I haven’t done it so far. It’s a mistake that needs to be addressed.
    I don’t think that I need to say much in this particular case. I mean, look at Shani’s color range and especially her extensive use of the color yellow (thank god for designers who appreciate yellow!). But wait, I need to mention the fact that at the moment I’m craving her oxford shoes and can see these and also these beauties in my future. In fact, I can see them sitting pretty in my shoe closet.
    How about you? Which one would you buy? And don’t you worry, I’m sure there are enough shoes for all of us!

Yulia Tsukerman | Abstract Paintings. Minimal Ceramics | October 3.14

  • Sometime being patient pays off. At least that’s what I keep on telling myself, whenever I see a graduate project that I can’t take my eyes off. At these moments I wish the student would already be shop ready with lots of stuff I can choose from and just pay. Yeah, I know, I need a reality check.
    I hope you see where I’m going with this…
    I first bumped into Yulia Tsukerman’s oh-so-minimal creations, at Bezalel Academy‘s 2011 Graduate Show. Duh!
    AT that time, Yulia was focusing on sculpture like beauties BUT NOW… Yulia is ready to introduce to the world her brand new usable ceramics. And yes, it was so worth the wait!
    Her ceramics look like collector pieces. Like a one of a kind object, that you don’t really want to hide in your cabinet. I’m talking about vessels that you want and NEED to present to the world (or at least to your guests).
    I especially love the doodle aspect of it and I can imagine Yulia sitting in her studio and having a blast, while working on these super free and spontaneous abstract paintings.

Eyal Richter | Are You Looking At Me? | September 30.14

  • Instagram, oh Instagram. I can’t put into words how much I love finding new instagramers to follow. Especially the ones that know how to put a big smile on my face, once I bump into their feed.
    Anyways, this isn’t an instagram love post, it’s more like an Eyal Richter love post. Love for his feed aka eyalized.
    Eyal, a designer by day and musician by night, is the one responsible for placing googly eyes all over editorial photographs. You can love it, you can feel a bit uncomfortable at times, but you just can’t ignore it. YOU JUST CAN’T!
    You should also know that the guy takes his job, as an eye placer, super serious and snaps more than 60 pics before choosing the right one that ends up in his feed. If I were you, I would sit back, and take a few moments to go through his googly creations. And in case you aren’t too afraid to use google translate, I would recommend you to read an interview with this wicked guy and find out more about his super intriguing project.

Here’s For A Brand New Jewish Year and Lots of Fortune Cookies | September 24.14

  • Rosh Hashanah (aka The Jewish New Year) is here and boy I can’t believe how fast it passed by. Too fast.
    I can’t predict what this coming year will be like but it feels like I shouldn’t think too much about it. Just go with the flow and trust my ongoing fortune.
    Wishing all you Jewies, a bright and adventurous year filled with lots of fortune cookies and unknown treasures.

Ruta Reifen | A Romance With Nature | September 22.14

  • Today’s post is super special to me.
    Ruta Reifen, one of my precious gifts thanks to this blog, is launching her brand new site and brand new and blooming collection of jewelry.
    I’ve been following her footsteps or better yet her handprint since 2009, that’s when she graduated from The Jewelry Design Department at the Shenkar College. Since then, Ruta moved on to Rhode Island School of Design in Providence RI to pursue her Master Degree and from there she moved to Brooklyn, where she lives and creates with her two bare hands.
    Ruta is all about nature and it’s form.
    “As a maker, jewelry presents endless opportunities to form intimacy through a wearable piece of art. These jewels are symbols of the splendor and romance I find in flowers, also the most immediate material for self-adornment since ancient times. Floral forms relate directly to the wearer, the exchange between us is personal with every piece I create.”
    Anyways, you have no idea how excited I am to present to you her oh-so-delicate yet enchanting one of a kind and massive pieces. And like with most designers, Ruta also has a dark side, or should I say a bolder side, in which she creates collection that won’t leave you unnoticed.
    Oh… you can also read my interview with this sparkling rockstar, that took place back in 2011.

Pudish | Avital Pudinsky | Black Pen. White Format. Endless Doodles | September 18.14

  • It all began when I saw this brilliant picture on Ohad Benit’s instagram feed.
    Let’s pause for a quick side note. Ohad is hands down my favorite Israeli instagrammer. Check his feed and you’ll see why.
    So, when Ohad shares sneak peeks of future projects he is working on, I’m taking notes.
    Back to the pic. The one behind these crazy doodles is Pudish aka Avital Pudinsky. A graphic designer by trade, who enjoys doodling her way through her spare time. And… when you print these oh-so-crazy-good doodles on a stack of notebooks, you get the most desirable stationary that one (meaning me) would drool over.
    If you want to have a slice of this black and white perfection, you should contact Avital and she will lead the way to a happy buy. I’m sure a store will follow soon enough. It’s just that I couldn’t wait a minute longer to share.
    In the meanwhile, you should follow her instagram feed, for any future doodle-ish developments.
    You can get in touch with Avital at: pudishart {at} gmail {dot} com

Interview | Designer Insights with Einat Kayless Argaman (aka me) | September 15.14

  • It’s not that easy to write about yourself. Especially when you are one of those, who likes to hide behind their computer screen. However, from time to time it feels good to push my boundaries, and that’s what I decided to do when Tudor Davies, my new twitter friend and the one behind Terry’s Blinds asked me to be part of their on going series, Designer Insights.
    You can read about my days as a blogger, the ones I admire, my inspiration and my fave designs at the moment right here oh and… While doing so, you’ll be able to bump into a rare pic of yours truly, which was taken by my fairy photographer, Noa Kedmi. So not like my usual self, I’m trying to do things a little bit differently (baby steps).
