This is the real deal: A vintage red, leather Gucci bag circa 1970s or ’80s that our friend (and overall New York style boss) Susanita was showing off for us at the weekend during brunch at Dudley’s in the Lower East Side. Super awesome.

Brooklyn Street Art … Girls Faces by Junko Shimizu

These monochromatic paintings of women’s heads form a set of murals on a series of walls in Willamsburg, Brooklyn. Japanese artist-illustrator Junko Shimuzu painted these, and we think they’re awesome. There’s a kind of vintage look to the women’s various hairstyles, and a graphic-novel quality to the line drawings that we like.

Akane Ogura’s Awesome Vintage Denim Bag

We recently met the super-talented New York-based Japanese artist-illustrator Akane Ogura, who showed us one of the awesome reclaimed vintage denim tote bags she has designed. We hear these have been selling out. Ogura also has designed lots of other cool totes, too, all hand-made by the artist. We really like the detail in the print and logo-tag designs. Great stuff.
