In the first instalment of a new, on-going series where we ask friends of Neighbour to choose their favourite pieces this season, we are excited to present photographer Jennilee Marigomen's selects.
The Vancouver-based photographer, known for her sublime use of light and painterly compositions, is a long-time friend and often collaborates with us. Here, she shares her five favourite items from Neighbour/Woman.
"This beautiful, memphis influenced piece by Studio Medium would look great placed on my coffee table, or any surface in front of me. It would be difficult to choose a colour, the combinations were thought through well."
"I make the effort to transfer this pin, designed by Karyna Schultz, between the coats and jackets I wear nearly everyday. Then when I put my coat away, I transfer the pin onto my shirt. It adds fun and interest to my mainly monochrome outfits. Looking at it makes me smile."
"I have a weakness for robes. One time I tried to wear a japanese silk kimono on a mountain motorcycle ride with my boyfriend - despite my enthusiasm for it's beauty, he was not impressed. A more practical choice would have been this one - I love this coats double collar and unique weave. "
4) Luigi Ghirri Kodachrome book
"As a longtime fan of photographer Luigi Ghirri's photographs, this second edition of his 1978 book is a must have."
"The Max Bill watch was a gift from my boyfriend, and is one of my most prized possessions. Timeless (pardon the pun) elegance and functionality with a great history. How often does one own a piece designed by someone renowned by his work as an architect, painter, sculptor and product designer? I really like it's details, especially the convex plexi face."
