Portraits by Robert Holmgren

Robert Holmgren is a photographer based in California who is originally from Rockford, Illinois. on his flickr page is a collection of portraits he scanned from old negatives dating back to 1971. here are some of my favourites.

Lenneke Wispelwey

Lenneke Wispelwey is a dutch ceramicist whose pastel hued porcelain pieces are “inspired by her own memories and found pieces from every day life”. her pieces make me think of modern versions of vases and collectibles i often see in vintage shops. you can shop her collection online at Buiten…


LES by Lesia Paramonova

i’ve briefly featured russian fashion designer Lesia Paramonova by way of Susie Bubble (who is evidently a fan, as she has been snapped in her creations multiple times) and was reminded of her splendid work again by thisispaper – which you should be reading if you aren’t already. her latest collection was…

we’ve been living in our home for months but still don’t have anything on the walls. we’re those people. there’s plenty of art to put up, but at the moment they’re sorta hanging around, balancing on pieces of furniture and resting on the floor in art limbo. just waiting for…


Olive Thomas

if there’s one thing i’m super picky about, fashion wise, it’s shoes. as a result i only have one pair of boots, one pair of sandals, one pair of loafers… it’s just so hard for me to find shoes i really love that i can actually, ahem, afford. most of…
