Nifty, Gifty: Rodarte’s Out-of-This-World Ornament

From Tom Sachs’ Mars landing to the pictures recently launched into orbit by Trevor Paglen, it’s been a spacey 2012. This is no time for a terrestrial Christmas tree. We’re decking our Douglas-fir with these spiral galaxy ornaments by Rodarte. Pasadena-based designers–and frequent visitors to the nearby Mount Wilson ObservatoryKate and Laura Mulleavy developed the out-of-the-world decorations for the holiday partnership between Neiman Marcus, Target, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The collaboration, which arrives in stores today, includes seasonally swell gifts by 24 designers, including Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, and Thom Browne. Priced at $19.99 each, Rodarte’s hand-painted, hand-blown glass orbs are sure to rocket off store shelves.

This is the first in a series of elegantly wrapped December posts about desirable goods that we suggest you purchase with the laudable yet vague intent of giving to others and then keep for yourself. Got a “nifty, gifty” idea? Tell the UnBeige elves: unbeige (at)
