Spent an afternoon at the Kunstmuseum of Contemporary and Modern Art, Stuttgart, the other day. It was alright. Notable works include those of Otto Dix and Willi Baumeister – but even then you’d require someone to painstakingly explain the backstory of each installation to fully appreciate it. Sans guide, it’s a bit like a smaller version of New York’s MoMA. I visited the Stuttgart Staatsgalerie the week after and much prefered it though, so if you only have one day, go for that one.

Dressed all in black because it seemed appropriate, also, why the hell not. Knit sweater and black skirt from H&M both, and I threw on a red blazer once on the streets which proved to be a foolhardy decision re: dressing in the midst of winter. Still, when best to be young and stupid if not when you are young and stupid? Exactly.

PS. In lieu of all things design related.. kind of, I also curated a collection for local design site Naiise recently, which you can view here. The interview I gave is also live on their website, and you can read it here. Thank you for the kind words, guys, and the rest of you – catch Naiise at the NONG Pop Up Store, a mixed retail + F&B + workshop event daily from 11am to 9pm on the rooftop of the People’s Park Complex, from 20 January to March 2014. So much love x
