Kristy, Marky & Kuwaii

photographer Kate Berry recently snapped the lovely Melbourne home of creative couple Kristy & Marky. Marky is a musician, currently touring with his band Monnone Alone, and  Kristy is the talented lady behind fashion label Kuwaii. i just had to include scenes from her cool little shop (also photographed by Kate) and some of my favourite pieces from her latest collection Landscape.

Bumper Fashion Special No. 19

you know, i’ve been skimping on the bumper fashion specials lately, mostly because i haven’t come across a lot of summer stuff that i find very inspiring (especially since at least 90% of what we’re exposed to fashion wise is from the north, where they are now settling into deep winter – jackets, coats, scarves, layers etc). so if you’re a southern african like me (or any other southern cousin), you’ll be experiencing 30+ degree heat by now – and black tights are the furthest things from your mind. that being said, i’ve done my best to collect some summer goodness from around the web. note: i’m not counting the spring / summer 2010 shows, which i covered pretty extensively here, here, here & here

these were great (trippy) books from my childhood – the illustrations remind me a bit of a water babies book i have (illustrated by jessie wilcox smith). those banksia men scared the crap out of me. via peacay
