ART & SOUND || B by B. [2]


I’m no music scholar nor sound engineer, but I am a creative who believes music can be one of the most transparent forms of communication. And though our practice varies in medium, musicians are artists after all. These are my thoughts on music and their videos.

COMPILATION || "BLUE HUES" [2]

Compilations offer readers a peek inside my head on a weekly basis. This is not a summary of my week, but rather a few important aspects of or enjoyable moments within. After seeing Joy over at Just like Sushi’s collage posts, I was inspired by her knack for stimulating visuals, and decided to do a similar thing here. Alas, we are all not really that original.

STYLE & FASHION || BETSEY JOHNSON REFINED? [14]



Anyone who knows Betsey's deigns (or Betsey), knows that refined isn't exactly the word you'd reach for if describing her and her work. While I support the free spirit Betsey often channels in her designs and personal style, I have never really been one to put my money where my mouth is and give in to buying one of her eclectic designs, until now. She’s a creative, an alumni of my university, and a person who seems to deviate from the conventional. I have admired her for quite some time and even more so now after her latest collection. Believe it or not, Betsey Johnson has refined her designs, giving room to a more sophisticated playfulness, but a playfulness, none the less.



Johnson has partnered with Urban Outfitters to create a sort of ode to the ‘nineties' (according to Refinery29). The collection feels a lot lighter than a typical Betsey design. Her voice is still there, but there is also an airiness about the collection that drifts it into almost minimalism. It’s rather interesting to see Betsey’s voice come through in this new way. I like it and I look forward to seeing her develop this further in her personal brand. Go Betsey, go.
