Heinui SS17

i have such a soft spot for Heinui, i blogged about them for the first time 4 years ago! designer Claire Pignot’s latest collection for SS17 is superb as usual. i’m not sure which is my favourite, possibly this dress because it looks so comfortable. but this fitted one is also…

Minimalist swimwear by Lido

lucky me that i posted about La Muralla Roja the other day because i was subsequently contacted by Daria Stankiewicz. she is the creator of Lido, and their lookbook was coincidentally partly shot at La Muralla Roja. WHAT a beautiful swimwear brand. such perfectly simple suits and bikinis, and i especially love that tomato…

Crescioni Spring 17

oh my gosh i LOOOOOOOVE this lookbook! the location, the styling, the model – and of course the products. showcasing LA based Crescioni’s Spring 2017 collection, including a capsule collection of woven palm and brass jewellery, made in collaboration with artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico. The six styles are staples from Crescioni’s…

AH/OK: Bloom

what a beautiful new collection from Italian label AH/OK. you know why i like it in particular? because it combines some of my favourite things: colour, print, blooms and (currently) oversized fits. i can’t fit into anything, you guys. these pieces should hide my one-year-old-and-still-hanging-on baby weight. shop Bloom, and their…

Sheila-Madge Bakker

you may remember Andel Olivier’s astoundingly beautiful wedding dress that i featured a few years ago, it was designed by Sheila-Madge Bakker who, at the time, did not have a website. but hooray she does now – featuring her ready to wear collections as well as a wedding line. she’s actually also done a collaboration…

Redwolf Tees

i have very vivid memories of rifling through the only vintage store in our little town as a teenager. it was called Greensleeves (anyone growing up in Stellenbosch in the 90s would remember!) and my friends and i would spend hours looking for cool t-shirts and other totally random things to wear. this was…

I wanna be a Flapper girl

i have a regular habit of browsing the dress section of ASOS, maybe because i’m always imagining i would have a special occasion to wear a dress to. not that i need an excuse to wear a dress, anyway, but these days it would quickly get covered by sticky fingers or…

Laurie Lee Leather

i like these and i want one. they’re hand painted on 100% leather by London based Laurie Lee, who you can of course follow on Instagram.

Animal Scarves by Nina Führer

quick! the baby is asleep and i have a few minutes to bust out a post, let’s gooooooooo! (this should be a new series huh??) these animal scarves by Nina Führer made me smile. it’s still stinking hot around here, but i would so wear one as soon as i got the…

Rosie Assoulin ex situ

aaah here we are again, friends – the shows are upon us! what shows? the Fall 2017 fashion shows, guys. don’t worry, i had no real idea they were on either. so i went lookin’ around at Vogue to see what is up, and of course walked away with an idea…

Monochromatiques

at first when browsing through Paris based designer Isabelle’s shop Monochromatiques i simply appreciated the fine minimalist jewellery – and then i began to notice sublime little surprises: a tiny brooch of matchsticks, a curtain blowing in the wind, a popcorn pin, assemble-it-yourself jewellery inspired by baby’s building bricks, an ode to the…

Bonsergent Studio

every year around this time i start pining for winter. like really cold, icy winter. we still have about 2 of the hottest months to get through, but i’m hoping that when Axel’s first birthday swings around in May (!!) i’ll be wearing a winter coat. what kind of coat? i…

Modern Weaving

a beautiful label by Tiffani Anne Williams, Modern Weaving makes bold brass jewellery and leather bags. A disciplined respect for the minimal is the primary ethos of Modern Weaving. The leather bag collection artfully fuses ancient basketry techniques into modern functional shapes. The incorporation of laser and die cutting technologies…

Evil Under the Sun

my new year’s resolution is to read more books (and i actually managed to read 3 books during the summer holiday – thank you baby naps!) i also think i need to dip into some classics that i have never read. and although my mom is a fan, i have never read…

Benu Made

here’s something fantastic to put a smile on your face this Friday. you’ll probably recognise Benu Made, as i have featured statement pieces from this Prague based jewellery line before (particularly the cactus & hand earrings). designer Pauline has just released a fun lookbook for her new collection a | symmetry,…
