OUR NEW PODCAST + Gwyneth, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Kenzo, Butter Yellow & Oishii
Clockwise from Top.
We’re testing out a few new channels for Tourist Trapp this year, as we continue to expand our reach. We finally got our podcast off the ground, and plan on keeping things to a very tight 5 minutes each week (that’s all Noemi gives mom and dad for podcasting).
Rihanna & A$AP Rocky announced that they are expecting, choosing to do a photo shoot in Harlem in front of possibly the ugliest building in Columbia’s upper-Manhattan real estate portfolio.
On the otherside of the country, Montecito resident Gwyneth Paltrow got her Arch Digest profile. While there are some crazy design decisions (as expected!), this image of her knock-off Ruth Asawa got the most attention. However, her home spa (or is it just a bathroom???), does look ridiculously nice. +1 on the lighting:
We’ve always been fascinated when a house radically changes creative direction under a new designer. Think Bottega Veneta under Daniel Lee, or Celine under Hedi Slimane.
That’s what happened here: the tiger graphic sweatshirts from Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are OUT, and IN are Nigo’s prints, kimono jackets, gingham aprons, varsity jackets and plenty of post-Ivy looks.
The most complimentary things we can say about it is, people will actually buy some of these pieces. That is not something you could say about Kenzo for some time.
This particular shade of yellow has been everywhere as SS22 rolls out to stores. Raquel has taken to calling it Butter Yellow. Think a European butter (but definitely not Kerrygold, which is gross).
Noemi is going to the first member of this household to get on the Butter Yellow train, with the Gap onesie in transit.
Has anyone out there tried an Oishii2 strawberry yet? They are vertically farmed, seedless, and according to their copy, possibly divine?
Oishii is a visionary farming company with a passion for fruit. Using technology and methods developed in Japan, we grow fruit that is far beyond the basic berry you thought you knew - strawberries so pure, so intense, and so sublime, they’re transformative.
They only deliver to NYC and LA, and cost roughly $5 per berry.
Sold out through Valentine’s day, we’re wondering what the next item from the produce section of the grocery store is going to be omakase-ed.

Oishii means “delicious” in Japanese.
