Tony Chestnut FW14

the rad thing about the blog is that often after i’ve discovered and posted about the work of talented people it allows us to connect and keep in touch – so i’m kept in the loop whenever something new is on the horizon (good for me, and good for you!) one such person is Jill Sawatzky of Tony Chestnut who i posted about earlier this year. she just released her FW14 collection, available at her online shop.

This newest collection was inspired by my Mennonite ancestors, and their humble way of living off the land. Subtle Androgyny, utilitarianism, simplicity and modesty were paramount in the inspiration. I love combining the creativity of handmade clothing, with the contrasting notion of necessity and frugality that drove people like my grandmother to sew and produce. It’s always been the backbone of tony chestnut to try to embody and respect both of these ideas in my handmade clothing.

Spartan

i first posted about Austin based shop Spartan waaaaaay back in 2010! that’s like a 100 years in internet time. so i’ve been excited to share their new lookbook, which i was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of before it launched. they stock items by designers that i love like Crescioni, Erin Considine, Dealtry and a whole host of others that are new-to-me.

We were feeling very inspired by women artists of the 20th century and studied portraits of these women for inspiration. Although our focus in the past has been home goods and jewelry, we are branching it a way that feels very natural to us to few apparel pieces that are easy to wear and great for travel – hats, bags, scarves, wool tunics, oversized sweaters, etc, with the same attention to graceful design and beautiful, high quality materials.

Pichulik: Baraka

the new Pichulik SS15 range Baraka has just launched, and i’m really into the limited colour palette Kat has gone for. she drew her inspiration from the architecture of North Africa and the Middle East (the name barakah means “blessing” in Arabic)

The colours and designs evoke the religious talismans of the Berber of Morocco and prayer satchels used throughout the region. Green and gold are sacred in Islam as they represent paradise while the blue, the colour of protection, is reminiscent of the indigo robes worn by the Tuareg and the colours found in the 400-year-old Sultan Ahmet Camii, Istanbul’s Blue Mosque.

Dear Rae: Let’s get Tropsi

one of the weird highlights of my blogging ‘career’ has been getting emails from guys who want to propose to their girlfriends and need advice on an engagement ring. it’s a tough thing to give advice on, and such a personal choice too! my first piece of advice is always that you don’t need to buy a huge big diamond. in fact, you don’t need to buy a diamond at all.

but my second most important piece of advice is: speak to a great jewellery designer. and then i send them to Karin of Dear Rae (who designed my own ring). besides special occasion rings, Dear Rae is of course well known for their wonderful jewellery collections. this week they are launching their SS15 collection Let’s Get Tropsi.

This range is inspired by sensations of Summer; the bright sun, cool leafy shade and the feeling of fruity juice running down your chin. Let’s get Tropsi showcases all things tropical. Karin says: “This new range was inspired by the raw, lush and leisurely nature of my surroundings. I found that most of my designs hold aspects of naive shapes, capturing the light heartedness of summer.”

soon available at their online shop. lookbook photography by We Love Pictures.

Fait La Force

NY based designer Emma Allen has been volunteering in Haiti since she was a teen. On a trip to seek out production capabilities, in the hopes of using her design skills to foster job creation, she met Chandler Hamilton and her husband and Josh – who have been working with artisans in Haiti for the past 4 years. together Chandler and Emma founded Fait La Force, which aims to encourage creativity and economic development in the country.

We work hand in hand with artisans across Haiti to create thoughtfully designed products with local resources and a mix of modern and traditional techniques. Our products are made with care and integrity by artisans in our workshop in Port au Prince, as well as our artisan partners across the country. We strive to create an uplifting work environment fostering collaborations between our artisans and like-minded brands and designers.

they just launched their debut collection, available at their online shop. you can also follow their journey on Instagram – how great is this shot?!
