Elizabeth Suzann

here’s an update from the Elizabeth Suzann (previously blogged about here) whose new SS2014 collection is simple and lovely. these clothes feel like the height of summer to me. as i’m typing this it’s POURING with rain outside my window, and we seem as far away from summer as can be – but i know that in the blink of an eye it’s going to be hot here again. in which case i might try to emulate this lovely collection.

Pitchouguina

pitchoungia

Pitchouguina is a London based label with Russian origins, by designer Anna Pitchouguina. i love the combination of gold and pale pink and grey, and especially love the detailing on many of these pieces – making them interesting yet wearable.

‘Pitchouguina’ is a label based on emotions. It draws inspiration from everyday moments, everyday people, random words, awkward smiles and all the little things that can so easily go unnoticed. We aim to create wearable garments that will make memories and play a subtle but important part in our daily lives. With Russian roots and a studio in London we let our melancholic dreams inspire our clothing. By our own choice we are a little naïve, and maybe a little obsessed.

Begonia House

i’m not a girly girl, but these delicate blouses and dresses that look like they’re blooming are simply incredible. to top it all off, designer kelsey genna is only 19 years old. these are from her latest collection, begonia house.

attribute portraits

i bookmarked these portraits by jelmar geertsma before i even had the blog, and by some happy circumstance rediscovered them this week when i was trawling through old favourites on a mission to find something else (don’t you love it when that happens?) things organised neatly and portraiture all in one = yes. jelmar explains,

series of portraits i’m making of my family … the portraits are made up of attributes that each of us have for our hobbies or work. the upper-right corner shows painted portraits as well, which are painted by my father.

brand name pencils

a website dedicated entirely to brand name pencils. this is why i love the internet!

you will learn interesting bits of informaiton like this,

WWII-era pencils have very distinct cardboard or plastic ferrules . Metals were needed for the war effort so a hard cardboard or plastic replaced the nickel or brass previously used to house the eraser.
