Todd Snyder Taps Frank Muytjens as Guest Creative

Todd Snyder is a loyal friend.
First, he brought the former GQ editor Jim Moore on board to act as a stylist for his spring runway show and editorial campaigns. Now, he’s tapped Frank Muytjens, a longtime friend and one-time colleague at J. Crew, to be the first person featured in the new “Curated by” segment of his popular catalogue.
“Frank is such a huge talent and we were really close friends when we worked together at J. Crew,” Snyder said.
So it was a no-brainer when he came up for the idea for a series of creative types to curate their favorite pieces in his catalogue, that he would turn to Muytjens to kick it off. In mid-2017, Muytjens was among the casualties in J. Crew’s ongoing restructuring. Then this August, Muytjens revealed that he had partnered with artist and entrepreneur Scott Edward Cole to open a luxury bed-and-breakfast inn in the Berkshires called the Inn at Kenmore Hall.
“I wanted to partner with people who inspire me and ask them to tell me what inspires them,” he said. “The theme of this catalogue is ‘Upstate State of Mind’ so Frank was perfect for it. Plus, we probably have a very similar audience and

Isaia Opens San Francisco Store in Frank Lloyd Wright Building

Italian luxury men’s wear brand Isaia has opened a boutique in San Francisco, its third Stateside, located in the historic Frank Lloyd Wright building at 140 Maiden Lane that was one of the original blueprints for the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Formerly home to the V.C. Morris Gift Shop, the store boasts 7,900 square feet of space, with 4,000 square feet dedicated to retail sales, incorporating a bevy of unique design elements.
“It is all about the space,” said Gianluca Isaia, chief executive officer and third generation of the family-run company. “We kept the integrity of every design feature intact. As an update to the store’s existing beauty, we focused on adding a color-sensitive lighting schematic, sound system and the styling of our product to complete the experience. It was much like restoring a masterful piece of art to its glory and giving it a new personality.”
Taking over a landmarked building was no small task, because none of the original materials could be touched or modified, including the original wall plaster, millwork, trim, flooring railings, bubbled ceilings and, of course, the brick and stone façade. Planning required the interior of the space to be painted the exact color that Wright

Isaia to Open Store in Frank Lloyd Wright House in San Francisco

Isaia will open its first store in San Francisco in a landmarked Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building at 140 Maiden Lane.
The 7,900-square-foot store will have 4,000 square feet of selling space and will open on Sept. 22.
In converting the historic building, the Naples-based luxury brand retained all of Wright’s original features and materials. That includes the wall plaster, millwork, trim, railings, bubbled ceilings, suspended planter, glass entry and the brick and stone facade.
Wright designed the building for the V.C. Morris Gift Shop in 1948. It was used by the architect as a prototype for the circular ramp at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, which he also designed.
“This year marks our 60th year as a brand,” said Gianluca Isaia, chief executive officer and third generation of the men’s wear brand. “It is personally very important to me that we are always pushing to do new things, while paying homage to our heritage. Opening a shop in the landmarked Frank Lloyd Wright building accomplishes just that.”
He added that the company was “honored to have the opportunity to work within such a respected piece of American architecture. We kept the integrity of every design feature intact.”

Frank Everett Returns to Sotheby’s in Expanded Role

Frank Everett is back at Sotheby’s.
Everett, a pied piper of New York’s jewelry scene — oft spotted at glitzy events at the invitation of bejeweled clients — has returned to the auction house after a brief stint as Graff’s U.S. sales president.
Everett’s homecoming sees him taking up new responsibilities as senior vice president, sales director for Sotheby’s luxury division. While previously only responsible for jewelry, he will now help expand the auction house’s luxury group — including jewelry, watches, wine, cars and “experiences.” Sotheby’s is also looking to get into the fashion game and has begun exploring how sales might include clothing, fashion jewelry and accessories.
The auction house officially unveiled a designated luxury division earlier this year. Before that, its component departments operated autonomously.
Said Everett in a statement: “After briefly turning back to retail I realized my talents and my passion truly align with auction. My favorite part of the job at Sotheby’s revolves around telling the stories about the works of art and the people who cared for them — from the personal collection of Mrs. Paul Mellon to the fascinating history revealed in the Stotesbury Emerald.

TV Meets Real Life As Frank Underwood Is Photographed By Pete Souza

Pete Souza is known for capturing some of former President Barack Obama’s finest and cutest moments: gazing at the Chicago skyline with Michelle, joshin’ around with a WWII veteran, beating Steph Curry in Connect Four, looking like a Renaissance painting, and chatting out his Christmas shopping list with Bo the dog. (Obama and Bo have had some serious heart-to-hearts over the years.)

Now, because reality TV has already bled into the Oval Office, the photographer who documented one of the most outwardly levelheaded presidents in recent history has shot one of the most inwardly unhinged ― Frank Underwood, Kevin Spacey’s ruthless player on “House of Cards.”

In the images below, exclusively debuting on HuffPost, we see snapshots from a day in the life of President Underwood around Washington, D.C., with chief of staff Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), as he pays a visit to the Martin Luther King Jr., memorial surrounded by young adults blissfully unaware of his shady political dealings.

The stunt with Souza follows an unveiling of Frank Underwood’s likeness at the National Portrait Gallery last year, where Spacey ― in character ― was followed by members of the actual White House press corps.  

Set to debut May 30 on Netflix, the new season finds the Underwoods locked in an election battle as they renegotiate their relationship with each other in the nation’s highest office.

Frank Fowler The Cash Boy (Illustrated)

Frank Fowler The Cash Boy (Illustrated)


Through some conspiracy, the hero of this story was taken from his relatives as a baby and given into the care of a kind woman. Not knowing his name, she gave him her husband’s name, Frank Fowler. She had one little daughter, Grace, and showing no partiality in the treatment of her children, Frank never suspected that she was not his sister. However, just prior to her death, Mrs. Fowler related all this to Frank. The children were left alone in the world. It seemed as though they would have to go to the poorhouse but Frank determined to care for them through hard work and thrift. A kind neighbor agreed to care for Grace for a nominal charge, so Frank decided to start out in the world to make his own way. In large retail stores, a “cash boy” was used to take a customers money to a cashier’s desk and return with change. Sales clerks were not trusted to perform this task themselves. This was Frank’s first job and, hence, the title of the novel. This edition of the book contains the original four illustrations, carefully rejuvenated, and seven additional place- and time-relevant illustrations that are unique to this edition. Horatio Alger, Jr. (January 13, 1832 – July 18, 1899) was a prolific 19th-century American author, best known for his many formulaic juvenile novels about impoverished boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. His writings were characterized by the “rags-to-riches” narrative, which had a formative effect on America during the Gilded Age.

Writings of Frank Marshall Davis

Writings of Frank Marshall Davis


Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) was a central figure in the black press, working as reporter and editor for the Atlanta World, the Associated Negro Press, the Chicago Star, and the Honolulu Record. Writings of Frank Marshall Davis presents a selection of Davis’s nonfiction, providing an unprecedented insight into one journalist’s ability to reset the terms of public conversation and frame the news to open up debate among African Americans and all Americans. During the middle of the twentieth century, Davis set forth a radical vision that challenged the status quo. His commentary on race relations, music, literature, and American culture was precise, impassioned, and engaged. At the height of World War II, Davis boldly questioned the nature of America’s potential postwar relations and what they meant for African Americans and the nation. His work challenged the usefulness of race as a social construct, and he eventually disavowed the idea of race altogether. Throughout his career, he championed the struggles of African Americans for equal rights and laboring people seeking fair wages and other benefits. In his reviews on music, he argued that blues and jazz were responses to social conditions and served as weapons of racial integration. His book reviews complemented his radical vision by commenting on how literature reshapes one’s understanding of the world. Even his travel writings on Hawaii called for cultural pluralism and tolerance for racial and economic difference. Writings of Frank Marshall Davis reveals a writer in touch with the most salient issues defining his era and his desire to insert them into the public sphere. John Edgar Tidwell provides an introduction and contextual notes on each major subject area Davis explored. John Edgar Tidwell is an associate professor of English at the University of Kansas. He edited Frank Marshall Davis’s Livin’ the Blues: Memoirs of a Black Journalist and Poet and his Black Moods: Collected Poems.

Cofounded by Jim Rubino, the film editor, and his trainer, Trevor Handberry, the site offers everything from suits and denim to bags, barware, grooming products and home goods. The idea for the business came after Rubino was frustrated with the duplication he found at the men’s stores around New York. Believing there had to be more guys looking for small, lesser-known brands, he broached the subject with Handberry during a gym session and asked for his help. “Trevor has a lot of fashion sense,” Rubino said. “I liked the difference in our personalities and thought it would be a good blend.” So Handberry set out on a “Google journey,” he said, to find high quality brands that were not widely distributed.

Anne Frank Made Me Throw Up

2015-06-10-1433896850-8929105-BongsSensimillaOneHitter.jpg

I looked forward to Amsterdam; meeting up with my friend Laura, and attending to unfinished business.

We met at Schiphol Airport, or shit pool, as she called it. It was a relief to see Laura. The last five weeks of traveling, had been a challenging, and I longed for familiarity, and people who spoke English.

Before I left for Amsterdam, I got an email from my mother. “Dani, have fun and don’t smoke too much dope.” Where do I begin with that?

I first visited Amsterdam when I spent a semester abroad studying in Paris, when I was in college. School was a breeze, and it didn’t require a great deal of studying, so I was able to travel every weekend. For six months I took full advantage of my time in Europe. One weekend I decided to go to Amsterdam.

I arrived at the architecturally impressive train station in the city of legal drugs, legal prostitution and cheese. I stayed at Bob’s Youth Hostel, which at the time was a popular backpacker hangout. By coincidence, I ran into a couple of girls from my program back in Paris. They invited me to hang out with them, or I invited myself, I can’t remember. They were partiers. I was not. They wanted to lounge in coffee shops, and smoke dope. I did not. I wanted to go to the Van Gogh Museum and to The Anne Frank House–they did not.

Actually, I didn’t either but my father sent me off to Europe with a list of recommended places to see, and I didn’t want to disappoint him, so I made sure that I ticked each and every one the list before I returned home. Taking the list literally dispels any mystery as to why I spent a good part of my entire adult life in therapy.

I went out to dinner with the girls, and ate a space cake. The details are foggy at best, but suffice it to say that the girls continued on to other coffee shops, and I went back to Bob’s to throw up. I hurled all through the night, which must have been a real treat for the forty other fellow travelers sharing the room with me.

I felt better in the morning so I went to the Van Gogh museum. When one acts for the sole purpose of checking off a list, chances are, one is not going to remember much, as it was in my case. I have zero recollection of what was in the museum; I assume some Van Gogh pieces.

I was still feeling okay, so I walked over to the Anne Frank house. I waited in line, bought my ticket and went inside. Just as I was midway up the attic staircase, a sudden wave of nausea washed over me. Please, no. Any place but the attic! I quickly did an about face, and bolted down the one-way staircase the wrong way. It was too late. There wasn’t time to find the actual exit.

I sprinted outside, ran across the street, and heaved the last few remnants of that evil space cake into the canal. Moments later I found my way back to Shit Pool Airport, and caught the next flight to Paris.

Eighteen years later, I was back at the Anne Frank house with Laura. I wanted to make it up to the attic. And I did. Anne’s story was indeed an incredible example of a triumphant spirit. I only wish that I didn’t see two young guys running through the house laughing and carrying on as if they were at a keg party.

The other part of Amsterdam that I missed all those years ago, due to my drug induced state, was the Red Light District, which inappropriately enough was also on my father’s list. Laura and I walked the streets. It was both sad and fascinating. Women were on display like ducks hanging in a Chinatown food stall. They peered out of their tiny windows at throngs of passerby’s. There was a fine line between giving an innocent look and staring. I didn’t want to be impolite and not look, but I didn’t want them to think that I was in the market, and get their hopes up.

The rows of windows looked like dioramas that I used to make in grade school. I think I expected the girls to be naked. They weren’t. Most of them looked despondent, hot and bothered. I expected them to be a bit more proactive. They could’ve tap danced or juggled, something to get the people’s attention. I’m sure it was a competitive business.

I saw one man writing a woman a check. Huh? Most grocery stores don’t take personal checks. One woman was watching television; that would’ve been me. Two girls sat in one window. I think one was visiting because she was fully clothed and holding the local Multiplex schedule under her arm.

Laura and I entertained the idea of knocking on one adorable Asian girl’s window so we could have a chat. I had a lot of questions, and as hard as she tried, Laura just didn’t have the answers. Do you have to pay for your window space? How come you’re not naked? Do you take Traveler’s Checks and credit cards too? Do you ride a bike to work? Is there central air and heat in the room?

As we were leaving, I saw a man walking into one of the dioramas with a smile on his face and dream in his heart. I ticked both The Anne Frank House and the Red Light District off of my list.

In this vid, which the cat food company did with Buzzfeed, a sage old feline gives advice to a new kitten.

“Dear Kitten: Since I have hissed at you the customary 437 times, it is now my duty as the head of the household to — begrudgingly — welcome you,” says the older cat, voiced by Buzzfeed’s Ze Frank.

L. Frank Baum

L. Frank Baum


Since it was first introduced over a hundred years ago in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum’s world of Oz has become one of the most enduring and beloved creations in children’s literature. It has influenced numerous prominent writers and intellectuals, and become a lasting part of the culture itself. L. Frank Baum was born in 1856 in upstate New York, the seventh child of a very successful barrel-maker and later oil producer. However, Baum’s own career path was a rocky one. Beginning as an actor, Baum tried working as a traveling salesman, the editor of a small town newspaper and the publisher of a trade journal on retailing, failing to distinguish himself in any occupation. His careers either failed to provide a sufficient living for his beloved wife Maud and their children or were so exhausting as to be debilitating. In the 1890’s, L. Frank Baum took the advice of his mother-in-law, suffragist leader Matilda Gage, and turned his attention to trying to sell the stories he’d been telling to his sons and their friends. After a few children’s books published with varying success, he published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900 and it quickly became a bestseller and has remained so ever since.In this first full-length adult biography of Baum, Rogers discusses some of the aspects that made his work unique and has likely contributed to Oz’s long-lasting appeal, including Baum’s early support of feminism and how it was reflected in his characters, his interest in Theosophy and how it took form in his books, and the celebration in his stories of traditional American values. Grounding his imaginative creations, particularly in his fourteen Oz books, in the reality of his day, Katharine M. Rogers explores the fascinating life and influences of America’s greatest writer for children.
