Welcome to Style Noir

A lifelong design enthusiast with a voracious appetite for the latest reportage from the spheres of luxury home, fashion, and industrial design, I hungrily devour all manner of design media. While my thirst for new inspiration is always quenched, my appetite for coverage of Black contributions to modern lifestyle and design usually goes unfulfilled-- a puzzlement, really, given the bounty of fruit born of creative minds of African descent. Rather than suck my teeth and shake my head at this amusing state of affairs, I'll hunt, gather, winnow, and share with you the best design from the Black diaspora.

Thrilled to discover you and I really hope your hunting, gathering and winnowing bears fruit because enough attention cannot be brought to contemporary african contributions to style and design!
Good luck!

Best energy in your endeavor here. I too am a design junkie. If only I could establish an intravenous drip of design. I take it straight, no chaser.

Anon,

Good point. In fact, expanding my reach-- and the scope of this blog-- has crossed my mind. There is, naturally, so much really invigorating stuff going on in the world of Filipino design as well; I would be wise to cover it.

A name change might be in order. Or an additional blog. Or something. I have to think more on it all and work it out.

Thanks for stopping by!
