I need some new trainers for boot camp. So while window shopping online, I stumbled upon these new Hello Kitty and ASICS trainers. No doubt the flashy Limited
Edition Gel-Lyte III sneakers will attract attention. Not exactly what I want to run in, but maybe something I wouldn't mind killing time in. The exclusive shoe comes in two patterns: a classic retro Hello Kitty print adorned
with mini stars in high contrast red and white and a Hello Kitty face with dollar signs in bold black and gold. Only available on Sanrio.com, New York, San Francisco, and Hawaii. $145 USD.

Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are delighted to present a new installation by Thea Djordjadze in Berlin. Standing at the center of the exhibition is a wooden construction, a space which may be viewed and entered, a house or the fragment of a house. A site where the ordered delineations between living and working, between private and public have been canceled.
