THE FALL THREE : CHRIS BLACK, DONE TO DEATH PROJECTS.


Lifestylist. Media evangelist. Maker of Words for Young Men. Mastermind behind Done to Death Projects. I’m speaking of Chris Black. Below, Mr. Black’s Fall Three.


1) Clarks Wallabees : I had not worn a Wallabee since high school, but I just got a pair in chestnut suede and have been wearing them everyday. Add yellow socks for the full Wes Anderson look.

2) Palm Springs : I know it’s far from NYC, but Palm Springs is one of my favorite places to escape to once the temperature drops. The houses are beautiful, the sun is always shining and the vibe is just the right amount of weird for me.

3) Mazzy Star – “Seasons of Your Day” : The new Mazzy Star album “Seasons of Your Day” is really good. It took them 17 years to release it but it picks up right where they left off in 1996. “Opiated folk rock” at it’s finest.

+1) “Daily Rituals: How Artists Work” by Mason Currey : This book chronicles the daily rituals of creative legends like Andy Warhol, Charles Darwin, John Updike, Jane Austen, Franz Kafka, Thomas Wolfe and Jean-Paul Sarte. The (sometimes crazy) habits of these great minds make me feel a lot better about my self-imposed, strict life guide lines.
