Jewels by Joanne Burke

i feel like if Cleopatra had a personal jeweler Joanne Burke would have been her go-to gal. i mean of course i am imagining Liz Taylor as Cleopatra here, but the analogy stands. her pieces are hand sculpted in cast in bronze or gold. see more at her Instagram.

Goodies No. 30

how do you guys keep up with cool things to peruse (or even buy when you are flush) on the internet? i feel like much of my online time is dedicated to instagram / twitter, which aren’t highly shoppable. since i don’t go to the shops much anymore – and…

Margot Molyneux AW17

i always love to see designers embracing a truly diverse clientele when it comes to their clothes, but especially the models they choose to represent them. South African designer Margot Molyneux’s AW17  collection features women of all sizes, but also of all ages – it’s so nice to see. if anyone…

Heinui SS17

i have such a soft spot for Heinui, i blogged about them for the first time 4 years ago! designer Claire Pignot’s latest collection for SS17 is superb as usual. i’m not sure which is my favourite, possibly this dress because it looks so comfortable. but this fitted one is also…

Minimalist swimwear by Lido

lucky me that i posted about La Muralla Roja the other day because i was subsequently contacted by Daria Stankiewicz. she is the creator of Lido, and their lookbook was coincidentally partly shot at La Muralla Roja. WHAT a beautiful swimwear brand. such perfectly simple suits and bikinis, and i especially love that tomato…

Crescioni Spring 17

oh my gosh i LOOOOOOOVE this lookbook! the location, the styling, the model – and of course the products. showcasing LA based Crescioni’s Spring 2017 collection, including a capsule collection of woven palm and brass jewellery, made in collaboration with artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico. The six styles are staples from Crescioni’s…

AH/OK: Bloom

what a beautiful new collection from Italian label AH/OK. you know why i like it in particular? because it combines some of my favourite things: colour, print, blooms and (currently) oversized fits. i can’t fit into anything, you guys. these pieces should hide my one-year-old-and-still-hanging-on baby weight. shop Bloom, and their…

Sheila-Madge Bakker

you may remember Andel Olivier’s astoundingly beautiful wedding dress that i featured a few years ago, it was designed by Sheila-Madge Bakker who, at the time, did not have a website. but hooray she does now – featuring her ready to wear collections as well as a wedding line. she’s actually also done a collaboration…

I wanna be a Flapper girl

i have a regular habit of browsing the dress section of ASOS, maybe because i’m always imagining i would have a special occasion to wear a dress to. not that i need an excuse to wear a dress, anyway, but these days it would quickly get covered by sticky fingers or…

Bonsergent Studio

every year around this time i start pining for winter. like really cold, icy winter. we still have about 2 of the hottest months to get through, but i’m hoping that when Axel’s first birthday swings around in May (!!) i’ll be wearing a winter coat. what kind of coat? i…

Heinui FW16

if you’ve followed the blog for long enough you’d be familiar with the wonderful seasonal collections from Heinui, by french designer Claire Pignot. Claire actually also recently had a baby, who is now 3 months old – so i commend her on releasing the FW16 collection while navigating new motherhood! the fact that…

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…

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…
