Guided

Yardbird in Hong Kong

city guides are one of my favourite things to discover online (i even created my own one for Cape Town, and also a guide of sorts to places i like in NYC). i bookmark them all the time, even though i probably have no intention to travel to some of the places – it’s always […]

Olend Backpacks

spotted this lookbook for Barcelona based backpack makers Ölend on thisispaper, and i am particularly taken by the sweet styling of high-waist jeans and chunky knits. that’s exactly how i would imagine myself if i was travelling through the north of England on a cold day (or whatever). there would be a flask with some hot […]

Lynnie Zulu

Lynnie Zulu

browsing the vibrant work of London based illustrator Lynnie Zulu is the perfect antidote to a Monday. growing up in Scotland, drawing was a form of escapism from an early age and much of her work draws from her family’s Tanzanian heritage. also the cursor on her website is a watermelon… it doesn’t get much […]
