i always love to see designers embracing a truly diverse clientele when it comes to their clothes, but especially the models they choose to represent them. South African designer Margot Molyneux’s AW17  collection features women of all sizes, but also of all ages – it’s so nice to see. if anyone…

do you recognise yourself when you look at these paintings? yes, because this is all of us. Phosphorescence shows a series of paintings that focus on the isolation of the individual in our society. The series reflects situations of absolute intimacy where the subject is totally isolated from all surroundings…

i remember this trip to Paris fondly because i had just kind of met Anton, and i was thinking about him the entire time i was there (we only started dating the following year). i haven’t been back since, and i am dying to go again. i know some people who are…

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…

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…

i couldn’t find more information about this series of photos, taken for LIFE Magazine by Nina Leen, apart from the title ‘Lake George’. i think they must have been taken sometime in the early fifties, and i’m pretty sure the models are not a real couple – though they do look pretty…

in the spirit of this being a compendium of radness, i’m sharing some random art i love today. i do realise that the art i like and tend to share is usually very colourful. i don’t know why that is. when i lived on my own my walls were so filled…

Jacques Henri Lartigue was a renowned French photographer (and artist) who began taking photographs in 1904, when he was seven, and continued well into the 80s – he died at the age of 92. he was married three times, and his photographs of his third wife Florette Ormea are undoubtedly my…

there’s an exhibition opening in London this month featuring a selection of photographs of David Bowie by British photographer Tony McGee, some of which have been been seen or exhibited before. i really love how noticeable Bowie’s distinctive eyes are in these pictures, he had Anisocoria – his pupils were different sizes,…

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…

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…

La Muralla Roja is an apartment complex set on the rocks in the coastal town of Calpe, Spain. it was designed by Ricardo Bofill and built in 1973. it is, as you can see, highly Instagrammable – see many more photos here. La Muralla Roja (The Red Wall) embodies a clear…

relevant to my post earlier today – all about Andel’s wedding dress designer Sheila-Madge Bakker – is the work of Andel herself, an artist who i started following on Instagram a while back. Andel lives in Cyprus with her husband, and they just recently had a baby (i was VERY impressed by Instagram stories of Andel working at…

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…
