These pictures from Brad just surfaced - although the exhibition is over, we still think it's pretty cool and worth sharing!

"The adventurous outside L.A. Pollack rep, Alexis Czyzewski, and I were on our way to an afternoon appointment when we passed the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum - fortunately we had 15 minutes to spare! The exhibition, L.A. Skin and Ink, covered 60 years of tattooing in Los Angeles. A popular part of the exhibition was for visitors to sit in a chair while an image was projected onto their arm to imagine (see the final picture!) I wonder if she made an appointment to get her arm tattooed?!" - Brad

My weekend between Decorex and a week of 16 sales calls was mostly spent walking a total of 14 hours around London. I was excited to see the gallery show, Vee Spears: The Birthday Party at the Little Black Book gallery in Chelsea! I purchased one of her images last year and it's hanging in my living room!

Sunday Snaps From London

Enjoy these Sunday Snaps sent to us from VP of sales Brad Bloom while in London two weeks for Decorex & sales calls:

Loved this show by NYC artist Ben Schonzeit at Plus One Gallery 


Street fighter

Light display at Conran. The same lights danced when I took a video - very cool!  

Calvin Klein models at Harrods. It was amusing watching shoppers try not to look at these guys! I went up and asked them a bunch of marketing questions - they had to stand there for four hours straight; four guys rotated the weekend job. They confirmed most people would not approach the stand but only stare from between the racks and little sales were made when they were working. A young girl & her boyfriend tried to enter the space when I was taking my photos and the guy on the right asked them to wait until I was done! 

Circles at David Linley Interiors

Above, Mandi Marsh with The Switzer Group in NYC is considering Wild Thing in chrome or Mix Tape in snow and ice for a project - hopefully one of these amazing new constructions will be perfect! 

Yu Jun Oh also with The Switzer Group found a perfect POLLACK fabric - Resplendence  in rose gold - to coordinate with her outfit!

Lastly, a shot of Judith Schmidtknecht in St. Louis finishing up a long day of selling POLLACK with Brad.

This past week Brad was back in New York and visited one of Issey Miyake's shops in TriBeCa.

"Hands down, my favorite clothing designer is Issey Miyake. I love the innovative fabrics and unique garment cuts. Each season I make a point to check out their new men's and women's collections and what they are showing now is exceptional!"  Here is a little preview...

This blue, flat piece below is fabric made of recycled soda bottles.


Unfolded it is this amazing green top!
