Ambidex

while i work on the next holiday gift guide i thought i’d show you this cool Japanese (of course) retailer Ambidex that stocks a multitude of amazing Japanese made brands that i have never heard of. such cool clothes that range from the cute to the utilitarian to that perfectly…

thanks to Zinzi and Lizzie for introducing me to TEN & Co. – a shoe label that specialises in oxfords that are handmade from vintage Moroccan rugs & supple leather. designer Tory Noll was on a trip to Morocco when she stumbled upon a tiny shoe shop in Marrakech and on a…

Amathunzi by Miss Moss

Amathunzi

we took a much needed break this weekend and were lucky enough to spend a day with family at the amazing Amathunzi Nature Reserve (less than two hours outside Cape Town – man i love this country). if you follow me on instagram you might have seen my pics of…

These Things No.42

my eyes just did one of those cartoon character bulges out of my face when i saw that the last these things i did was 1 month ago to the day. what. is. happening. to. time?! i was under the mistaken impression that i do one every week, and i should!…

Good Hair

i haven’t been able to get the beautiful hair accessories by Brook&Lyn and Jujumade out of my mind since they launched their LA colab series recently. why don’t we dress up our hair more? i’m not one to talk, since i barely ever wear my hair out of a top…

gisele

Gisèle

Gisèle d’Ailly van Waterschoot van der Gracht is her full name – and only fitting for a 100 year old artist who grew up in an Austrian castle, studied at the Paris École des Beaux d’Arts (which was interrupted by the financial crisis in Europe  in the thirties & the oncoming war),…

Exploring Shorpy

Ruud van Empel

at first glance one might be fooled by looking at the work of Ruud van Empel, but you quickly realise that you’re not faced with reality… is it photo? a painting? neither, really. the Dutch artist creates photorealistic digital montages by combining hundreds of his own images. Van Empel tried…

Three’s Company

there are a few new collections i’ve spotted around lately – three in particular – that have been making me quite excited for summer, and it only makes sense to share them all in one go. three’s company, three time’s a charm… you know what i’m saying. love the vibrant…

Matt Bower

Matt Bower aka Terrapin Dawg (raddest alias) has a wonderful collection of photos that he’s taken around the states in places like georgia, alabama, michigan… i love the feel of them, it reminds me a bit of William Eggleston’s work. also be sure to check out his trip to India and…
