amy: things i like right now

amy and i met each other in our first year of university where we both studied graphic design. i can’t tell you how many hours we spent drinking coffee on campus, ‘working’ in front of the tv while watching period dramas, driving around in her eighties honda ballade despite its odd smell… we have traveled overseas together, shared a room the size of harry potter’s cupboard, attempted to encourage each other in various exercise regimes (if you gym, i’ll gym) – the list goes on and on. a great friend who i am very fortunate to know.

things i like right now by amy who curates for field office and blogs at visi

  1. Will’s sandwiches at Field Office. My best is the haloumi and mexican salsa served on rye.
  2. My Hungarian Viszla Sophie. She is the best pooch around. Photo by Desmond le Roux
  3. Pedersen and Lennard hook. Super handy and so beautiful.
  4. Gold Toms. My friend Mariah has them and they make me jealous every time she puts them on.
  5. Chapel Bags. By my friend Caleb.
  6. Bridle Road Residence in Cape Town. Because the pool is green, the garden is big and they have ridgebacks.
  7. Isabel Marant. My favourite fashion designer – I dream of wearing her one day.
  8. David West’s latest collection. Proudly South African.
  9. Sticker wallpaper from Peyton Turner. Each wallpaper pattern is made up of thousands of hand-applied stickers, and can be removed and re-applied in any space. Who doesn’t like a sticker.
  10. Air plants. Because they don’t need so much water. Photo by Masaaki Sano
  11. Dale Lawrence. My favourite artist right now.
  12. Ryan McGinley. Makes naked look so good.
  13. Elsabe Milandri. She makes ink drawing look easy and such a free and easy style. Her subject matter is always thought provoking yet true to her roots.
  14. Old Cape Town photos. I am a history nut & could read about the history of Cape Town all day. It has changed so much and we have lost so much history, yet people don’t seem to care.

    I met my absolute best friend/ soul sister through my graphic design program. We have done many fun things, but have yet to travel overseas together :) I love the things Amy has gathered, especially the Dale Lawrence piece!

    What a fun round-up! I would love the pool, the plant, and the rucksack. I also dream of wearing Isabel Marant…

    I have that same Isabel Marant ad ripped out of a magazine and sitting on the edge of my desk! Pink lace-up jeans? Mesh tee? Fishermany sweater? And it all looks so ridiculously amazing, laid-back and cool together!

    The woman is brilliant! Love the collection you’ve put her with too.
