Malcolm McLaren

“Man fixes some wonderful erection of his own between himself and the wild chaos, and gradually goes bleached and stifled under his parasol. Then comes a poet, enemy of convention, and makes a slit in the umbrella; and lo! the glimpse of chaos is a vision, a window to the sun.”

D. H. Lawrence

Moon Invader watch

The Moon Invader watch from Romain Jerome is not only inspired by the Apollo 11 but elements of the watch are actually constructed from pieces from the lunar lander itself. A unique ball and socket system resembling the feet of the lander is not only an aesthetic touch but also helps to adjust the fit of the watch to the wrist. The watch also has a ‘Moon Silver’ plate on the caseback made from actual moon rock.

Not sure I like the name ‘Moon Invader’ — I think ‘Moon Explorer’ would be a bit less aggressive.

Mother of Pearl stationery

Loving this stationery designed by William Hall for luxury clothing brand, Mother of Pearl.

Using a three column grid, foiling and a large debossed area the letterhead features a large black block, which contributes a significant visual statement and echoes the square fabric label used on many of the garments.
