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 others.

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 studied at Seattle Central School of Apparel Design and has interned with Mociun and most recently as a design intern for Rachel Comey for a full season. WT was founded with the notion of creative independence and design integrity with clothing that puts thought towards fit and quality.

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 way to find out about new designers, as well as learn about them & their process.

this week they are showcasing the work of sara dudzinsky & her jewellery label better late than never. i was just thinking yesterday how i haven’t bought or worn a pair of earrings in so long, probably because most of the stuff i see in shops are still terrible hangovers from the gypsy/bohemian trend.  that’s one of the reasons why i like her double crystal studs – they are clean & simple with just a bit of quirk.

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. currently dealing with 38°C heat in my town today.

spence

YAY! an online shopping option for south africans that is actually RAD. i’m talking about spence guys. they had the launch at field office last night. spence boasts threads from sa designers like margot molyneux, missibaba, take care, christopher strong, steffany roup and many more. my credit card is going to take a beating soon.
