Totokaelo

i am really loving all the new arrivals at Totokaelo, and especially love how they have styled and shot their products. seeing actual movement makes such a difference, i think. i’m also pretty jealous that the northerners are moving into autumn… my favourite season. glad we will get to experience…

Elizabeth Suzann

i was so pleased to get an email from Elizabeth Pape introducing me to her line Elizabeth Suzann. a self taught designer, Elizabeth is based in Nashville and her design focuses on simplicity, clean lines, and longevity. I use all natural fibers – silks, linens, cottons – many of the pieces…

Cape Town Love

i first noticed Megan & Mike Gilger of The Fresh Exchange when they tagged me in an Instagram photo of their travels in Cape Town – they had been making use of my Cape Town City Guide to discover some cool places to see. i always get the warm and fuzzies…

Young Frankk AW13

i always love receiving news from Christine of Young Frannk, as i’m a huge fan of her jewellery. she just launched her AW 13 collection, and it is accompanied by a beautiful, dark & moody lookbook. i like the fact that the vibe is switched up with every new season…

Pitchouguina

Pitchouguina is a London based label with Russian origins, by designer Anna Pitchouguina. i love the combination of gold and pale pink and grey, and especially love the detailing on many of these pieces – making them interesting yet wearable. ‘Pitchouguina’ is a label based on emotions. It draws inspiration from…

These Things No 55.

hello! i am currently in the midst of one of the most exciting (and busiest) times of my life. yesterday the awful rain and hail we’ve been having stopped very suddenly, and we were greeted with snow and SUN  – basically the perfect combination – for my bridal shower. my…

Tuokka by Katja Mustaniemi

Katja Mustaniemi is a creative designer from Finland who designed the Tuokka backpack as part of her final thesis at the Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Arts. it is such a beautiful piece, and i absolutely loved seeing her entire design process on her website. now the question is, where can we buy…

Kuwaii Giveaway!

remember i featured the gorgeous Melbourne home of Kuwaii designer Kristy around this time last year? well now i’m happy to present a giveaway from their new S/S 13-14 Magic Eye collection! With a perfectly balanced harmony of form and function, the Kuwaii aesthetic is at once both strikingly simple…

Princess Margaret

poking around the Life archives i came upon these photos of Princess Margaret visiting “British East Africa”, today Kenya, Uganda, Zanzibar and Tanzania. i mostly wanted to share these because of that fabulous dress she’s wearing in the first few images. she seemed like a fun royal, someone who was likely to…

Gorman

i love Aussie brand Gorman – their prints just scream S U M M E R. and since us south africans, and our counterparts in the southern hemisphere, are going into spring i feel like this is the kind of stuff everyone should be wearing. at the moment we are…

Orla Kiely Spring 2014

i have never been the biggest Orla Kiely fan, i find her designs often just a little bit too twee. which is exactly what her latest Spring 2014 collection is… but somehow, i like it. the models are certainly channeling Suzy Bishop – the collection was, after all, inspired by the Girl…

Northern Sun

Jennilee Marigomen just shot the lookbook for Canadian outerwear brand Northern Sun. the company was established in the seventies, and quickly became synonymous with finely crafted, Canadian-made jackets and parkas that stand up to the demands of an unforgiving climate. they have had a see the entire lookbook here. Like the…

Delpozo Spring 2014

when i saw the Delpozo Spring 2014 collection i had two thoughts: (1) WOW and (2) this is crying out for a comparison series. before i delved into my little project, though, i looked through every piece on Style.com. what a collection. and upon reading more about it, saw that…

Colby College Mountain Day

one thing i can never resist when i am visiting someone’s home, even if it’s a stranger, is to flip through any photo albums that might be lying around. usually they’re of old photos – because, let’s face it, people don’t really put together physical photo albums anymore. everything is…
