Valentino Ready-To-Paint

Spring 2017, i told you i’d be baaaaaaaack! well, i haven’t tackled every single designer of London, Paris and Milan cause that would be insanity… but instead decided to dedicate a post to my favourite of all: Valentinoooooooo (said in Oprah voice). according to Vogue, designer Pierpaolo Piccioli is an avid…

Open House

Matisse Eyes

it’s been 2 years since the The Cut-Outs exhibition debuted at the Tate in London, and Matisse has been on everyone’s lips ever since. i see his influence pop up all the time, from wallpaper to kids clothes. the latest: some cool jewellery and apparel items that i felt i needed to share.…

Jewels Sept

are you familiar with my Jewels posts? well sometimes i get overwhelmed with the wonderful array of new jewellery out there, and rather than dedicating a post to every single designer i compile a compendium of sorts instead. i’ve been numbering them in French (who KNOWS why) and this is…

Novis / JOSEPH FERRISO, Interior Courtyard

A Painterly Spring

guys, following the fashion shows is exhausting. Spring 2017 is only in London now, which means Paris and Milan still have to come! i looked at (what felt like) hundreds of shows and realised I’d only scratched the surface of New York fashion week. so, instead of doing an exhaustive rundown…

Hats by Laura Apsit Livens

i can count the number of occasions i’ve worn a hat on maybe one hand. i just kind of feel like a fool when wearing one. do i look okay? is my hair sitting right? why does my forehead feel so sweaty? etc. but that doesn’t mean they don’t look…

Crescioni’s Fall 2016 collection is filled with these things, including all new handbags. better yet they now have an online shop, when previously you could only view their collections online. score! Crescioni handbags are an extension…

What would I buy from ASOS?

my husband was in London recently for work and i jumped at the chance to order a few things on ASOS. i hadn’t browsed there in so long because i gave up on shopping online internationally long ago – the customs duties! – and i found i was overwhelmed by what was available…

Caves Collect

a funny thing happens when you have a baby. besides the whole gaining weight and weird postpartum tummy deal, you just dress differently. well – i did. i can honestly say that for the first 10 weeks of his life i wore leggings, nursing tops and oversized checked shirts. that’s ALL. i…

Blue Naive

Linen

i’ve been coming across a lot of great linen wear lately, and while i don’t actually own anything made from linen myself it might be time to invest in some key pieces. strangely enough these are all coming out of Lithuania (must be a linen hotspot?). just be careful that you…

Seaworthy: Gravity

aah it’s always so wonderful for me to see new work from long favourite designers. Marisa Howard of Seaworthy has just added some sterling silver pieces to her latest collection, Gravity. i looooove those large hoop earrings. Sterling silver has a rich history, dating back to the 12th century. I’ve…

Ernesto Artillo

oooooooh, i only just discovered the work of Spanish artist Ernesto Artillo – art meets photography meets fashion – all the good stuff rolled into one! Ernesto’s original artworks, photography & collaborations (amongst which include fashion house Delpozo) are something to behold. some of it reminds me of my own art + fashion posts (maybe why…

Tony Chestnut Summer 2016 17

Tony Chestnut Summer 2016

the one thing i’m pretty excited about right now, besides actually meeting our baby, is the prospect of wearing “normal” clothes again. i have been rotating the same 5 pieces for what feels like, well, 9 months – and i’m ready to dip into my usual wardrobe. so when designer Jill…
