Blood Orange

Why not decorate my house like a fruit salad? I love lemons, tangelos, pomelos, tangerines, grapefruit, lime, and all citrus fruits for their bold and juicy color patterns. But, no fruit is more fashion-forward than THE BLOOD ORANGE.  The distinctive dark flesh color is due to the presence of anthocyanins, a family of pigments common to many flowers but uncommon in citrus fruits. According to botanists, the blood orange is likely derived from a mutation of the sweet orange, and is much smaller than a regular orange. The fruit’s peak season in U.S. Supermarkets is probably  from December to March (Texas groves), and from November to May (California groves). The orange is known to originally come from China but is now grown primarily in Italy (what a Jetsetter). Some say the oranges are maroon, other times they appear red, and when the pigment drains to the outer vesicles of the fruit, they let off an almost pinkish vibe. Of course, the outer skin still remains (you guessed it) – orange.

Brand Loyalty

Luis Gispert is a Jersey born, Brooklyn-based artist who is enamored with the idea of authenticity and branding. Gispert‘s “Decepción”, was a show at the Mary Boone Gallery in Chelsea, NYC, that was hyper focused on a subculture devoted to making both cars and clothes into personal showrooms for designer-logo fabrics. Gispert became so obsessed with the logo-crazy niche that he has continued documenting this culture via photographs for the two years.

The New York Times article explaining the exhibition states, “The creators of these logomobiles are fashionistas aspiring to wealth and glamour they can own. One Escalade plunges passengers into a total Takashi Murakami “LV” environment. Another car’s interior is upholstered in the graffiti-scribbled, Day-Glo green patented by Stephen Sprouse. And another is screaming pink, with Coach “C” stirrups covering every surface surrounding its rosy leather seats.”[Read more]
