Mad Respect: Carlos Naude
In this episode of “Mad Respect,” we bring you Carlos Naude, a graphic designer and furniture maker out of New York City. Using reclaimed wood, Naude fashions masculine, industrial pieces, incorporating concrete, steel, and iron elements under the clever company name Lumber Juan. (His background in graphic design didn’t hurt the Lumber Juan swag he designed, either) We sat down to talk to Carlos about what his holiday plans were, how 2013 treated him, and his favorite eBay find ever.
Jenny Bahn: Where are you dreaming of taking off to this holiday season?
Carlos Naude: I dislike cold weather, so probably some secluded beach in the French Polynesia.
JB: Most glorious moment of 2013?
CN: Getting a Green Card.
… [MORE]
JB: What are your top five things to pack before leaving town?
CN: Camera, sunglasses, music, swim shorts, and, of course, my woman. 
JB: Any goals for 2014? Dare we say, “resolutions”? 
CN: Travel to India, grow Lumber Juan, develop a new parallel furniture line, run NY Marathon and improve my poor guitar skills.
JB: Favorite eBay find ever?
CN: My truck: A 1977 Ford F250 in perfect condition.

Insta-Peep-O-Gram: Yayoi Kusama 
New Yorkers have been braving the freezing cold and hour-plus lines to fully immerse themselves in the world that is Yayoi Kusama. With crowd-pleasing colors, lights dancing on water, and an abundance of mirrors, the exhibition has been an Instagramer’s selfie-taking dream come true. Michael Gobo, the gent who took this photo, however, was more restrained than most. To see what’s happening at David Zwirner’s gallery in NYC, just search “#kusuma” on Instagram.

Halloween Spirit: The Couple Outfit
We love a good team outfit, and it doesn’t get any more classic than Little Red Riding Hood and her Big Bad Wolf. Model Lindsey Wixson sits demurely while filmmaker/photographer Joachim Johnson sits ready to pounce. The pair were spotted at the Tokyo Halloween Party hosted by Tommy Saleh and Travis Bass last weekend in New York.

CMJ Music Marathon News: Gossling
Tuesday marked the beginning of NYC’s 2013 CMJ Music Marathon and, with it, the first performance of the week for Melbourne-based Gossling. Against a backdrop of gingham curtains, the three-piece group played a solid set, a combination of pop enthusiasm and grounded sensibilities, with vocals reminiscent of Joanna Newsom. Click here to listen to tracks from Gossling.

Anna Goes Metro
Anna Wintour might not take the subway in New York, but we can always dream she lives like one of us, can’t we? Here’s just a snippet of a recent editorial in Oyster featuring Myla Dalbesio, shot by Tung Walsh. And if you’re starting to think about Halloween costumes, a DIY Wintour mask might serve you well.

Richard Chai + eBay Now 

"I’m a guilty New Yorker in that way of wanting things yesterday," joked Richard Chai last night at the launch party for his tote bag collaboration with eBay Now. Here’s a video of Chai in his studio, describing his inspiration for the graphic tote and explaining how the eBay Now service helps him as a designer living in New York City.

Summer Denim: Dillon Burke
Meet number four in our series of five fashion bloggers employed with the task of finding a great denim item on eBay. Dillon Burke, who runs the menswear blog Thread & Salt, which he describes as the result of blending his two worlds, an interest in modern menswear, and his life growing up around food. We asked why he picked this pair of Levi’s (sans snacks). Here’s what he told us:
"Levi’s is one of the predominant ready-to-wear menswear companies in the world. Their product speaks for itself. Their history is robust and remarkably American and their overall brand continues to evolve and adapt while maintaining the image all of the world has come to know."

Focus On: Harley Viera Newton

Harley Viera Newton is one of those multihyphenate New Yorkers who you’re sure has given up sleep to accomplish everything they have in such a short amount of time. The model and DJ — a dual career path that makes sense given her father’s time in the music biz and her mother’s former career as a model herself — has worked for some of the top labels, in front of the camera and behind the decks. Both gorgeous and talented, she was a perfect fit for Dior, who made her the in-house DJ for Dior Beauty, as well as an ambassador of the brand. 

Luckily for us, last night Harley spun at an event celebrating eBay’s My Gadgets, which lets you catalogue your tech collections and find out how much each item is worth. Which gadgets would end up in Harley’s catalogue? Technics headphones and 1200 turntables, an iPhone 5, the famed Tetris Nintendo 64 game. The list goes on. (Don’t worry, you can find all of them below with links to buy them yourself). We asked Miss Newton about what gadgets keep her on-time, on-target, and, most importantly, having a great time. 

Jenny Bahn: You do so many things. If you could describe your busy lifestyle in one sentence, what would it be?

Harley Viera Newton: It’s a balance of everything I love!

JB: Favorite memory as a kid playing video games? 

HVN: I definitely remember many hours spent on the Nintendo 64 with friends. It was all about Mario Kart and Mario Party. Oh, and Pokemon Snap.

[MORE]

JB: What’s your favorite part of photography? 

HVN: Looking back at the photos a few years later. There’s nothing better than flipping through a box of #TBTs.

JB: Favorite types of camera to shoot with and why?

HVN: I love my Contax T3. It’s a compact and easy point and shoot but the quality of the photos is stunning.

JB: Are you an Apple junkie like the rest of us? What are your fave products and why?

HVN: Definitely a devoted Apple user! I now use my MacBook Air to DJ which has been a major game changer travel wise — it made me my retire my iPad. But the iPhone is obviously an essential, too.

Summer Denim: Nicole Loher
The third in our collaboration with eBay and a few favorite fashion bloggers, Nicole Loher (aka The Style Student) is a twenty-year-old girl living in New York City, documenting life on what she describes as a “fashion meets fitness, fitness meets life” blog. We asked Nicole what drew her to the pair of denim cutoffs she scored on eBay. Here’s what she had to say about it:
"I chose vintage Levi’s high-rise denim shorts with a tropical print because they really capture how I’ve been feeling lately. I’ve been listening to a lot of M.I.A. this summer so I kind of just want to wear a bunch of bold, clashing pieces. And I like that each pair of Levi’s from this seller DIY’d them. And the pocket accent is really in this summer."

Vintage Photographs  
Last week, The Inside Source checked out a few exhibitions at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. What really struck our fancy was a collection of images gifted by Peter J. Cohen, who spent 20 years sifting through the photographs of complete strangers, combing flea markets, garage sales, even the Internet. The result? A set of thirty thousand images taken by amateurs and curated by the pros into meaningful groups. To follow in Cohen’s creative footsteps, click here to see the great selection of vintage photographs on eBay.
