10 Second Studio Tour: Todd Oldham

Ever since Instagram introduced video capability to its service last year, we’ve seen our feeds fill up with dozens of adorable clips—from snoring dogs to easy-peasy DIY tutorials. We’ve been dying to take a crack at Instagramming video (instavidding?) and figured that it would be the perfect medium for studio tours with some of our favorite artists and designers! Today, we’re kicking off a brand new feature on our Instagram called “10 Second Studio Tours,” starting with an all-time fave—the wonderful, fabulously fantastic Todd Oldham.

We swung by Todd’s downtown Manhattan office this past Tuesday to take a few snaps and the explosion of color that met us there proved the perfect foil to the subzero temperatures outside. Filled with abundant pattern, humor, and life, Todd’s offices are exactly the kind of place we’d want to work in on a chilly day—or any day for that matter. Check out some of our favorite stills and a few outtakes from our tour after the jump! —Max
