June Things

i got a bit sidetracked today while looking at wedding dresses for a friend online, and ended up creating a very wanty June things list. funny thing is it’s pretty cold here right now (i’m actually sitting on a hot water bottle as we speak! my buns are so cold, you guys) – but this is of course a very happy, peach, summery wishlist. sigh, the grass is always greener hey?

you can just click on the sweet little icons to be taken to the items. fancy!

Art Socks

you’ve probably spotted Kate Brien’s feet here and there – since she’s been featured on Vogue and, well, who else matters right? Kate is a stylist, and her fashionable feet appear regularly on her tumblr View from the Topp. Vogue recently asked her to style a killer sock collection in honour of the NY Frieze Art Fair last month. the socks in question are by The Sock Drawer – they have an entire range of Art Socks for your feet. i particularly love Frida and Gauguin.

Lee Coren

you may remember my post last year about designer Lee Coren who makes such beautiful textiles. Lee has just released her latest collection, which was inspired by a trip to Italy.

The collection was inspired almost completely by an 8 hours stop at Rome, Italy, on my way back from a trip to the USA, and is constructed on the melding of urban surroundings and dreamy escapism. The collection features handmade screen printed fabrics as well as original prints from scenery captured on camera that transformed into versatile essentials, built to last but never boring.

the pieces are all Vegan friendly. shop here or on Etsy. lookbook photographs by Aya Wind.

Milk & Paper

do you ever daydream about living an alternate life? the one i often have is that i reside on some beautiful island in Greece (100% influenced by this book) and i bake my own bread and drink wine at 11am and carry fruit in a straw basket and i’m perpetually tanned and i just wear natural cottons and linens. no? just me then. well - that’s how i felt my life could be like when i saw these beautiful bags and baskets by Milk & Paper.

Shapes by Deapapa

i’ve always loved creative tote bags, but to be honest i never actually really used them. until i moved into my office this past month. now i find myself needing to tote shit everywhere. before i worked from home, and when i went out i just used my handbag. but now – packed lunches, power cables, bags of apples (yeah i don’t know either) … the life of a freelancer is full of stuff hey? so i smiled to myself when i saw these new totes by Verónica de Arriba of Deapapa today. i should get my hands on one.

the collection is a play on geometric shapes inspired by Memphis milano movement and all the things that inspire me daily. 6 models of organic cotton tote bags, screen printed with water based inks & made from a sustainable crop in a Fair Trade factory.

buy them here.
