Drama on the Streets

Miss Moss // Drama on the Streets

i felt like these deserved a re-post! you see, i have been going through my archives and i rediscovered these Period Drama vs Street Style colour comparisons that I did way back in 2011 for Hila (you can see the original posts here and here). i never actually posted them all here so i thought i’d share. and, damn, i did pretty well if i do say so myself! Hila and I share a great appreciation for period dramas, she even wrote a book about screen adaptations of classic literature. she also wrote this marvellous post for me in 2012 about the locations of some of her favourite period films.

Voices of Industry

Voices of Industry

Adele Stafford is the creative mind behind Voices of Industry, who create hand woven apparel and textiles from 100% domestic fiber, farmed and spun in the U.S. Adele hand weaves each piece on a mechanical loom from her studio in Oakland, California and works with a small team of pattern makers and tailors in San Francisco. which is pretty amazing if you consider that almost 98% of all clothing in the US is made internationally. it’s people like Adele & her team who are steadily bringing that number down (and creating beautiful garments at that).

Double Tap: Adrian De Sa Garces

one of the cool things about Instagram is seeing what other South Africans are up to on their summer holidays – a lot of people go up the coast, or spend their days on the beach, or go on road trips. others travel further afield, visiting family and friends they don’t get to see during the year. a nice way to virtually travel through the country from the comfort of your iPhone.

MOMO

i have been so excited to write this post because it has been weeks (months?) in the making. i first met Neira Zahirovic last year through my husband Anton (he works with her significant other Adrian) and she had been developing a range of bags whose journey i had eagerly been following on Instagram.

Blush is a fashion brand by Tel Aviv based Sheryll Raz Gold that sells wonderfully simple, single colour garmets on Etsy. her dresses and tops come in a range of hues, from blush to black to blue to yellow to red – the kind of clothes that i would buy one piece of in every colour.

Yo Vintage: Her

Yo Vintage // Her

Yo Vintage is one of my long time sponsors (please check the sidebar and support these shops & makers!), and owner Sarah just sent over their latest lookbook, entitled Her after the film that’s on most people’s lips at the moment. everybody i meet is either talking about it or i’m telling them to see it (go see it). Yo Vintage is a Portland based online shop that sells wonderful hand-selected vintage as well as new designers.

The Garden Edit

The Garden Edit // Miss Moss

oooh boy did i go down the proverbial rabbit hole when i discovered The Garden Edit. i don’t think i have ooh’d and aah’d so much in a while. first of all, what a BEAUTIFUL site. second of all, what a DREAMY shop. founded by English gardener John Tebbs, The Garden Edit sports a collection of products for, and inspired by, the garden – bringing together a modern collection of products that embody functionality, timelessness and beauty. those copper bird feeders by Vasse Vaught are something else! and they even stock those lovely illustration by Alicia Galer, who i blogged about last year.
