I REA Approve Old Navy’s flagship store in Chelsea because of its history and retro-modern interior design. It was one of the first Old Navy stores to be built, and it features see-through escalators, industrial elevators, and warehouse-like concrete floors.
A friend of mine paid me a surprise visit at REA and she was towing an UNIQLO bag. Earlier this week I saw this bag on the Staten Island Ferry and wanted to “approve” it but didn’t want to bother a perfect stranger. I am glad I got this second chance. I like the way the verbal brand and visual hold to a rhythm and grid. I think their new campaign is very smart.-IR

Mario Bellini Cab Chair – I love my new chairs. I confess I didn’t know their value until I got home, but I did know when I saw them that they had an amazing sense of proportion and balance, function and simplicity. – IR
