Hamilton, The Walkmen

I love this new-ish pic of the always inspiring Hamilton Leithauser / The Walkmen. What a great scene for envisioning new guitar straps.

Bonnie & Clyde

The true story of Bonnie & Clyde is really amazing to me. It first interested me 5 or 6 years back, and the more I learned, the more I became obsessed with knowing everything about them. Part of what fueled my interest was the fact that I was living in Denton (& later Dallas) Texas at the time, which is where they were essentially from, and where some of the major events in their crime-spree took place. Plus, it felt kind of like a story whose history was fading away with a previous generation, and I wanted to discover what I could, while I could.
Anyway, the (now) vintage aspect of the photos of them, their cars, their clothes, are all very inspiring. And the 1967 movie (although not necessarily a good representation of what they really looked like) is also great and inspiring. If you haven't seen it, I really recommend it. (That they are making a new B&C film starring Hilary Duff, is truly awful. Boo.)

Light Denim

I am really liking the light color of this denim jacket on Alexa Chung. Actually all the colors in this ad (Pepe jeans) look great together, and are definitely inspiring for some new guitar straps. Time to get back on track!

McQueen's Hardware

These shoes from Alexander McQueen's Sp10 show are amazing. I love the sculpted metal plates with holes and screws combined with the printed shoe. Its high-fashion steampunk and very inspiring.

Stitched Leather Piecing

I love the geometric leather panels and the stitching detail on these pieces from Louise Goldin's Fall 2010 runway. Definitely a cool idea for a shoulder piece on one of my guitar straps. I also like the peek of metallic red, to make it a little more flashy.
