"A Love Story"

“A Love Story,” a video for Spring/Summer ’11 by GANT by Michael Bastian.
Love Michael Bastian, LOVE the styling of this video.  All the class and elegance of an old movie plus the hazy warmth of a wonderful dream.

I’ve watched this about five times now, maybe hoping my dreams tonight will look like this.

Retro Travel-Inspired Graphic Design

 Love these retro travel-inspired pieces designed by Caroline Popham as press invites for UK fashion brand Jigsaw.

Airstream Love

My sister and I have a fascination (obsession?) with well-designed trailers, starting and ending with the Airstream.  They are the holy grail of trailers, with their brilliant trademark aluminum siding that makes them forever the coolest and most-recognizable trailer.
You can’t get much more Americana.
We’ve discussed using them for everything from actual tours around the states to stand-alone hotel rooms clustered on a piece of land to inspiration for packaging for… well.. I can’t actually tell you because you might like the idea so much you’d take it. 

Much to our delight, Airstream continues to turn out new models that have that retro appeal without getting too kitschy about it.  Through collaborations with everyone from Design Within Reach to Victorinox, I’m pretty sure there’s an Airstream out there for everyone.   (The one above was retro-fitted by Ralph Lauren.)

From largest to smallest…
Above, the enormous Panamerica, in which you’re essentially towing a hotel suite plus your own garage behind you (it has 11 feet reserved for motorcycles, atvs, etc), below, the more compact and tricked out Victorinox Swiss Army special edition.
And finally, the cute little Basecamp, below, even has a pop-out tent, in case you were feeling a little guilty about pretend-camping in a trailer. 

There’s also a pretty cool version for the Mini Clubman that I posted back here
And here is the DWR version.
