This is one of dozens of new Desigual scarves from the Spring-Summer 2017 accessories collection, which arrived this week at Angel

We’ve just got a new shipment of Desigual bags, scarves and jewellery from the Spring-Summer 2017 collection, called Global Traveller.

Earlier this month, we received the first shipment of Desigual for women and kids, including denim jeans, summer coats, tops, and sweaters. The Desigual SS2017 collection for men has also arrived. Here’s one of the new men’s shirts:desigual-jeremy-shirt2-125-95-ss2017-72c12d1_5176

For a limited time, the entire Desigual SS2017 collection is on sale @ 10% off. We also have a 30% off sale on Desigual from Fall-Winter 2016 and up to 50% off previous seasons. The sale ends Jan. 31.

For now, here’s a sampling of the New Arrival accessories, featuring several reversible bags, with two containing another bag inside:

Desigual Shopper Capri Aquarelle bag. It has a second bag inside. The entire bag is reversible, so it's like having three bags in one.

Seven years ago, Abel Makkonen Tesfaye was sleeping on a bare mattress in a Toronto apartment. Now 26 and known as The Weeknd, his latest single featuring French duo Daft Punk hit No. 1 in more than 80 countries 24 hours after its release late last year:

This song, Closer, features 21-year-old Halsey and is by U.S. deejay duo Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, also known as The Chainsmokers; it just clicked over the 1 billion mark on YouTube, which has to be something of a record for a lyric video, especially considering they have not yet released a debut album and have no immediate plans to do so:

And here’s a Canadian band from Vancouver called Hedley (the name of a small town in the Interior of B.C.), which just hit a respectable 1.4 million views for their lyric video:

When the Hedley video gets to the lyric “time machine” there is an animated graphic of a clock  running backward. It reminds me of a pub I went to on the island of Inisheer (Inis Oírr), the smallest of the Aran Islands on the west coast of Ireland. I had noticed the second hand on the pub’s clock running backwards, so I asked the barman about it.

“Well,” he explained, “some of the local wives had complained to the police about their husbands coming home late from the pub, well beyond closing time.” And since there were no police on the island — the closest Garda are in nearby Galway across the bay, a ferry ride away — two officers disguised as backpackers set up a tent on the nearby beach and decided to pay the Tigh Ned pub a visit one night to have a few beers. But when the Guinness continued to flow after closing time, the officers identified themselves and busted the pub for serving after hours.

“Now,” the barman said with a smile, “the longer you drink, the earlier it gets.”

Tyrus Wong was one of the most celebrated Chinese-American artists of the 20th century, but he passed much of his career unknown to the general public. Photo credit: Sara Jane Boyers/New York Times

The most important thing I did Monday was spend an hour on the phone with my good friend Kim Wong, whose father, Los Angeles artist Tyrus Wong, died last Friday. He was 106.

Kim and I went to Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. The first time I saw her I recognized a kindred spirit: She was wearing an embroidered Mexican dress, and so was I. People didn’t wear ethnic clothing then, the mid 1960s. But the school was in downtown Los Angeles, close to a Mexican district, full of great clothes that the general public hadn’t discovered yet.

The Los Angeles Times phoned the morning Tyrus Wong died. The newspaper was going to interview Tyrus for a profile the reporter, Elaine Woo, was working on. Kim had to inform Woo that Tyrus had slipped away earlier that day. The L.A. Times story is here.

Kim told me Tyrus, who had a great sense of humour, would have been “amused” that he made the front page of the New York Times. He probably couldn’t imagine making the Times of India.

Tyrus got recognition later in life for his instrumental work shaping the look of the 1942 animated Disney movie Bambi. Using watercolour painting techniques from the Sung Dynasty landscape paintings, his brush strokes suggested a forest without showing every branch or leaf. Here are a few of his brilliant paintings for Bambi, which was watched in awe and sadness by generations of children, some of whom became the best animators in the business.

After leaving Disney, Tyrus went to work for Warner Brothers. This is his painting for a scene in 1969 Warner Bros. film The Wild Bunch (1969).

Disney honoured Tyrus as a Disney Legend in 2001, and put on a retrospective of his art three years ago at the Disney Museum.  Just this year, a documentary, Tyrus, was released, making its  debut in Vancouver last November:

In his 90s, Tyrus was also known as the Kite Man of Santa Monica Beach. He made elaborate kites of paper & bamboo, sometimes attaching dozens to a single string more than 100 feet long. An amazing man who led an amazing life.tyrus-with-kites-santa-monica-beach-annie-wells-l-a-times

Today’s music videos are from 2016, one by Rihanna, the other by the Rolling Stones:

A YouTuber named samuelwitt2 compiled 33 blues tunes by The Stones, 1964-2008:

And here’s one by the late soul singer Sharon Jones, who died Nov. 18 at age 60:

And I know it’s post-Christmas, but I’ve added this Christmas song by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, “Please Come Home for Christmas.” Dap-Kings band leader Gabriel Roth recently lamented in a letter to fans. “We wish you could be home with us this Christmas Sharon. We love you and miss you.”

Rolling Stone magazine reported the stop-action animation was directed by Alex Howard & David Drew Hatter: “The video consists of 3,200 photos and created entirely on an iPhone 6 Plus. In total, it took three months and 600 man-hours for Howard and Hatter to finish the video.”

Today’s music is the same as last Christmas: River by Canadian icon Joni Mitchell:

While not a Christmas song, River evokes the spirit of the season. Joni, who had a brain aneurysm last year, has recovered enough to attend a recent Chick Corea concert, which is good news. Here’s one more song by Joni, Carey, written while she lived in a cave in Matala, a tiny fishing village on the island of Crete in Greece (click here for photos of the caves then). She had just broken up with her boyfriend, Graham Nash, and lived in a cave for two months in 1970 with a young American man named Cary Raditz, now 70:

The two songs are from Blue:

Today’s music video is This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody) by former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne (keep an eye on the woman sitting on the lawn chair at the beginning of the video, as she rises above the band and swings over their heads — the band members have to duck as she goes by):

And yes, that is Sean Penn at the beginning and end of this clip from the 2011 film This Must Be the Place by Italian film director Paolo Sorrentino, who directed one of my favourite Italian films, The Great Beauty (La Grande Bellezza). Paolo has a new TV series, The Young Pope.

This is a 2009 song by Canadian soul singer Melanie Fiona, which samples Time of the Season from 1968 by the Zombies:

Late Show host James Cordon, during his most recent Carpool Karaoke, got Madonna to confess that she once necked with Michael Jackson:

Oh maybe that’s not the latest Carpool Karaoke. Here’s one from 2 days ago:
