The Socialite Family

consider The Socialite Family a French version of FvF – except focusing on families, of course. founder Constance Gennari started the website to share her true passion: “observing interior design through the eyes of a family, whether in Paris, New York or anywhere else in the world.”

Traditional values, more particularly, family values are becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s world. As young parents, we not only have a responsibility to provide a just and honest education to our children, but also to teach them to appreciate the better things in life, as any true epicurean would. Through the lenses of various photographers that irresistibly draw us into the world of these modern families, The Socialite Family mission us to imagine and inspire.

i like the latest feature of stylist Aurélie Lecuyer and her husband Jean-Christophe who lives in Nantes with their two little boys. the beautiful photographs are by Melanie Rodriguez.

Atem

ATEM caught my eye with their beautiful website and interesting lookbook (and the bags, of course). the brand was formed in 2011 by designer Nelson Abulencia, and is based in Germany. be sure to check out their site for more.

ATEM creates purity, finesse and quality in accessories. We like to call it contemporary timelessness. We enjoy attention to detail in everything we do and therefore only use carefully considered materials that satisfy our high understanding of quality & style. The strongest garments and smoothest leathers are crafted into functional design items with a sense of tactile simplicity. To ensure our vision translates into every item that leaves the studio we only work with contractors that share our idea of creating a highly durable contemporary modern classic.

Kruger Park

Miss Moss // Kruger Park

i’m so excited to share these photos of our trip to the bush! a lot of what we saw couldn’t be captured on film – the animals are simply too fast for you sometimes, and most of the time they’re too far away to get a great shot – unless you have a telephoto lens (and you’ll see a lot of people with SERIOUS lenses in the park, trying to get that perfect shot). our best moments were experienced through binoculars – which are an essential item to have if you’re ever considering a trip to Kruger (or any game park in Africa).

Good Guys

Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather is a vegan shoe brand from Parisian designer Marion Hanania. the shoes contain no animal by-products, and the design is influenced by shapes, styles and looks from bygone times. i love those sandals (even though they’re actually for guys) and of course cannot resist a brightly coloured brogue. check out their website & their online shop for more info.

Lorde

Lorde

in the past week i’ve received two emails telling me about 16 year old New Zealand singer Lorde (thanks Holly and Sarah). this girl is good. and the more i listened to her music the more i thought, damn what was i doing at 16? i was making mixtapes, not music. i wasn’t causing a mini-music revolution in New Zealand. i’m really looking forward to seeing what Lorde will be doing when she’s 21. she also has big lovely hair which i am quite envious of.

enjoy her EP The Love Club below, or at her website or soundcloud, and buy it on iTunes.
