Nido Kids

there’s nothing cuter than a kiddo wearing a hand-knitted jersey, especially if it’s been made by someone special like mom or granny. if you don’t have any knitters in the family perhaps check out the new nido kids AW16 range. see my previous posts about nido here.

Elizabeth Suzann

i was so pleased to get an email from Elizabeth Pape introducing me to her line Elizabeth Suzann. a self taught designer, Elizabeth is based in Nashville and her design focuses on simplicity, clean lines, and longevity. I use all natural fibers – silks, linens, cottons – many of the pieces…

nido ss14

argentinian knitwear label nido (who i previously blogged about here) just released their SS14 collection, which is 100% cotton, hand-knitted and hand-dyed garments by Argentinian artisans – inspired by sea breeze, shaded forest, cool summer nights. the lookbook was shot by photographer Ana Armendariz, and the models are Constanza Castagnet and Alan Segal,…

Upstate

i don’t actually own a piece of dyed clothing, but now i wish i do after seeing the Upstate s/s 2013 collection. i especially love those rich blue pieces, the slouchy tops and the elegant high-waisted shorts. Kalen and Astrid design garments utilizing their own take on shibori and dip dyeing. each…

Nadia Tarr

Nadia Tarr is a former dancer & choreographer turned fashion designer – and you can definitely see that influence in her beautiful, simple silhouettes. i love love love her midi & maxi dresses, and would honestly want one in every colour & pattern if i had my way (though if…

Muku

i was intending on doing a these things today, as usual, but the Muku SS 2013 collection felt like just the right way to sign off the week. from the sweet little girls (those little dresses! those milk-maid braids! those flowers crowns!) to the simple & beautiful pieces for women…

Aritzia

despite the kinda ritzy name, Canadian retailer Aritzia has very beautiful wearable pieces, and some snazzy floral numbers too. i’ve always loved the idea of floral pants, but can’t pull them off myself – so whenever i see a gal rocking a pair i applaud the universe. ps: you might…

Syrup

you may remember that i’ve posted about Japanese mail order clothing line Syrup before. i had a gander at their latest ranges, which include an Alice in Wonderland line and a Moomin line – as well as their Autumn Range. i can’t really tell you much more than that since google translate…

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…

Myrtle FW 12

Whitney sent over the latest lookbook for her LA based shop Myrtle (you may remember the fantastic Tomboy Style lookbook from earlier this year). it was photographed by Megan McIsaac, and features designers such as Ermie (who wouldn’t recognise those first two dresses), Elkin, Feral Childe, Micaela Greg, and Samantha Pleet amongst…

Wolcott : Takemoto

i was contacted by Natasha & Joy introducing their new line Wolcott : Takemoto – and what a wonderfully simple and wearable collection it is. Wolcott : Takemoto was founded by Joy Wolcott and Natasha Takemoto – Seattleites turned Brooklyn dwellers. Natasha studied at FIDM in San Francisco and Joy…

of a kind

of a kind is a pretty unique shopping experience in that they feature an emerging designer each week who releases a limited edition item in a small batch for the public to snap up (and they do – everything that i have browsed through is sold out.) it’s a lovely…

these two

oh man, i am still very much in love with blouses. especially peachy ones. lovisa superstar / kate wilson nag nag nag, but i need it to be cold again to wear long sleeves.

jumper fabriken

i really like the lookbooks from jumperfabriken. they have a subtle vintage feel that’s all about the styling and details – without relying on fakey photo filters & heavy photoshop tricks. i also like jumperfabriken because they make nice jerseys (sorry, jumpers) – items i am dying to wear again.…
