yesterday we celebrated our one year wedding anniversary and as a serious treat we spent a night at Clouds Estate outside Stellenbosch. we stayed here just after our wedding, so it was special for us to return, and of course just amazing to get to spend time at this exquisite location. if you…

beautiful new styles from MATTER. see my previous post introducing them here.

September is a month of the wind changing, and we feel the weather’s momentum intimately, given rain and shine affects when we print what. It’s a departure from previous editions with darker prints on lighter backgrounds, with a sense of transience and weightlessness. In monsoon season the rains mean we can only print this way, and of course, we go with the tides.

this past winter i realised that almost every single thing i bought was black and i would wear it with white or denim or whatever – but overwhelmingly black, nonetheless. and i was more than okay with that. i am currently mourning the impending loss of my rad MONODROBE with the oncoming heat we’ll be experiencing soon (shudder… or should i say, sweat?)

next weekend we celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. it feels like it was years ago, yet minutes ago. my dress is still hanging in the same position in our cupboard, skirt flecked with dirt and doubtlessly splattered with champagne – as if it happened yesterday.

illustrator Charlotte Trounce has been doing these amazing illustrative recaps of select SS15 fashion shows on her Instagram account, which certainly deserves a Double Tap (i would triple tap if i could!) i feel like when you look at the seasonal shows everything starts merging into one big fashion rainbow, and sometimes it just takes one talented & creative individual to show you awesome aspects and details you might not have picked up yourself.
