Is that Art or a TV?

For the first time ever I might consider owning a TV: The Frame is the first TV that doesn’t turn off; instead of going to black, The Frame displays a stunning piece of art, turning your wall into a museum-worthy art gallery.

Vogue x Tattly

Tattly partnered with Vogue Magazine. I keep giggling every time I mention those two brands together. It’s making my heart explode a little bit. It doesn’t escape me that it is an absolute privilege for a young company like Tattly to collaborate with an esteemed and trusted brand like Vogue! I remember sitting in their conference room, a few months back, overlooking lower Manhattan and thinking “is this really happening?”

And now it’s here, we launched the Vintage Vogue Collection. My team and I spent days going through their 125 year magazine archive and picked some of our favorite illustrations from the 20s, 30s and 40s.

The lady riding the zebra, which is a Vogue cover illustration is definitely the one that won my heart. But the there’s also the woman holding up a mask in the Vogue Set that keeps making me smile.

This is a limited edition collection, so get it while you can.
