IN A GREAT BIG ROOM IN A GREAT BIG ROOM

I am a new fan of the skincare brand Aesop.  I’ve always seen their products in stores, but never really tried them until visiting one of their shops in Shoreditch during my trip to London in March.  I got recommended a regime and have been using it ever since, to wonderful results.  So when I heard they were doing a collaboration with another of my favorite brands, Marimekko, I knew I had to snap it up.  The sauna set is pretty amazing – it smells so green.  Pricey and limited edition (and selling out), but a super nice treat.

 


Last night, Jan and I went to check out Doug Aitken’s enormous Station to Station project during it’s Chicago stop at Union Station.  A bit like the Happenings of the 60′s performance art scene, a bit like a music festival and a bit like a carnival, Station to Station brought together everything from Chicago’s super electric White Mystery to guitar drone from No Age to an Ernesto Neto installation in a yurt to a full-on marching band (with twirlers!).  Super stimulating, totally inspiring, a little bit of everything.

Much more about Station to Station here.
