Charlotte Linton A/W 2012

Charlotte Linton hits it straight out of the park again with her A/W 2012 collection

The travel diaries of early 20th century artist Rockwell Kent provide a starting point for designer Charlotte Linton’s Greenland Collection. Taking inspiration from the paintings and drawings Kent created whilst living amongst Inuit communities, Charlotte blends her usual mix of landscape, wildlife and culture with Kent’s exuberant colour palette in her eclectic printed scarf collection.

This season, Charlotte’s fictional muse Ermantrude follows in Kent’s footsteps arriving in Nuuk Greenland to undertake a cross-country expedition. Under the glow of the Northern lights, Ermantrude learns of Greenlandic mythology, the traditional crafts of the Inuit and their ingenuity with fur, and listens to the song of the Bowhead Whale.

Scout & Catalogue Spring 12

i asked Anabela of the newly revamped Fieldguidednice work Kate! – if she’d care to share the lookbook that she & her partner Geoff recently shot for Scout & Catalogue. i really love Anabela’s visual aesthetic, and particularly enjoyed her behind the scenes photos from the shoot. Shop the collection here.


I first met Bre of Scout & Catalogue a few years ago when she was selling items from one of her earlier collections at a holiday market. As I mentioned on my blog, when she first asked if Geoff & I were interested in shooting her spring 2012 lookbook, I was nervous and tempted to say no, but I’m glad that I did. We shot this lookbook mostly on film, and even though it was the dead of winter, we ended up with a spring-like vibe that made me long for the blossoming of the magnolia trees. Luckily that will be happening soon enough.

This collection is so beautiful that I couldn’t help but pick up a leopard-print clutch for myself, although it took me weeks to choose just the thing that I wanted!
