It doesn't take much to amuse me, a nice photograph, a humorous store display, or a clever pair of shoes usually do the job. Other times I get completely inspired, like running into Sir Paul Smith at his new Soho store, and decide to start a blog dedicated to things that perk my interest. I named this blog Ropa Vieja, Spanish for "old clothes", a popular dish in the Cuban culture, consisting of shredded beef in sauce resembling a pile of laundry. I thought it would be an appropriate name especially when discussing all things vintage, but I have a feeling I'll be covering all sorts of fashion/design related subjects from both the past and present. Enjoy.
