Jewels

jewellery is something that i love in theory, but never really wear. maybe i’ll sport a ring now and then, or a necklace if i’m feeling really flashy – but mostly i don’t really accessorise as much as i should. this past weekend i bought a new necklace from skermunkil which i love, and it got me browsing the internet for more rad pieces to potentially wear. or dream about wearing. please click on the images to be taken to the relevant designers.

Lalesso x Pichulik

south african designers Lalesso and Pichulik have joined forces to create a bag range that makes me want to do a little happy dance. Lalesso x Pichulik features 3 designs – a duffel, a purse and a foldover clutch – in a myriad of Lalesso fabrics, topped off with Pichulik’s signature ropes & accessories. very much a case of one of each, please.

Oysho

looking through online shop Oysho feels like floating on a cloud made of bunnies and kittens. their socks section alone made me aaaaaaw too much for my own good, not to mention those ridiculously cute animal blankets. but Oysho isn’t all puppies and rainbows – they also have delicate underthings & wonderful beachwear at really reasonable prices.

Billie Sunday

it’s always great when a wonderfully creative lookbook draws you in, but it’s doubly awesome when you really LOVE the products that are being showcased. Billie Sunday is a new line of bags out of Barcelona by designers Mar Villegas and Emma Pardos. the lookbook for their first collection Sand Paradise, which is inspired by Palm Springs in the early 60s, unfolds over five days and plays out like a sunny sixties thriller. you can shop the collection here.

A collection that inserts you into the aesthetics and ordinary qualities of this American vacation paradise that consisted of no more than swimming pools, motels and palm trees surrounded by desert. The photographs taken by Las Coleccionistas, recollect the atmosphere of that particular place through stories, parties, neighborhoods, and pursuits which blend together as if it were a motion picture.
