The laptop-toting demographic is continually on the rise. Be it transient students, workers on the move or nerd-afficinados, anyone bringing their computer from point A to B has a few basic needs. Alexandra Cassaniti understands this. She gets an A+ for combining upscale efficiency with snarky wit. Who else could create a pattern resembling overgrown stubble and seal it with leather trim (and a hidden smile)? This ballsy American designer trusts her gut, producing quirky functional style that’s both tech friendly and fashion forward.
Robin Cameron’s art reveals a thoughtful parallel to Cassaniti’s textiles. Distractions, Cameron’s latest collection of whimsical graphite drawings are part of a zine she has been creating over the past few months. Inspired by movement, contrast and the human condition, Cameron’s analytical approach to her line work is both intricate and stunning.
