Paloma Wool

Barcelona based Paloma Lanna just launched Paloma Wool, in which her interests in fashion and analog photography converge. the collection of limited-edition sweatshirts is produced in Spain, featuring Paloma’s own photographs. there are also some beautiful separate pieces made from natural fabrics, focusing on timeless silhouettes.

Paloma Wool is my name and the name of this project, which is about getting dressed and about space or ideas that are created around the act of getting dressed. The brand, created as an artistic project, employs different forms of expression such as sculpture, and video art, collaborates with artists from varied disciplines and highlights the role of photography.

i love the sweatshirts, especially this one. but DAMN those marbled pieces are insanely cool. also love the classic Camila dress! ok who am i kidding, i love everything.

Birkenstock

soooooooo… Birkenstock, huh? as soon as the topic is raised someone will pipe up, “but i’ve been wearing them forever!” – and, it’s true. any reasonable person will tell you how comfortable they are. i practically lived in mine when i was a teen. my German sister in laws have been wearing them for decades. so it’s kinda cool to see them so de rigueur right now. i particularly love the Monterey black on black version (which, it turns out, are pretty hard to find!) and the white Arizona. not bad for a shoe brand that’s 240 years old.

you can buy them online at asos, net-a-porter, zappos and tons of other places!

Des Petits Hauts

i’m not sure when pineapples became the fruit of the moment, but they are certainly enjoying their day in the sun – popping up in every lookbook, photoshoot and fashion editorial i come across these days. WELL. maybe it’s time for bananas, right? or how about a juicy mango? i’ll be taking bets on the next fruit du jour.

that said, french label Des Petits Hauts has also brought our spiky friend into their new summer range. as well as other lovely basics that are so simple and french it makes me feel like taking a trip to the countryside with a basket of fruit (pineapples) and a bottle of wine. PS: they only deliver to Europe, unfortunately!

Frances May x Church & State

Frances May was one of the first independent shops i discovered online, many many years ago now, whose inventory and general vibe i really fell in love with. which is thrilling to me because they are now a proud sponsor of the blog (yay!) they just recently relaunched their website – showcasing big beautiful images and wonderful lookbooks – as well as their usual collection of amazing clothes for men and women.

they have also just launched their first in-house collection, a collaboration with Portland designers Church & State.

Rachel Turk & Nathaniel Crissman of Church & State and Pamela Baker-Miller of Frances May put their heads together to re-interpret favorite Church & State silhouettes with a Frances May twist. The dresses (each named after their grandmothers) are a curation of dark florals, thoughtful design and even a reversible dress.

the lookbook was shot by Caesy Oney. you can shop the entire collection here. if you had to tell me tomorrow that i could only wear pieces from Frances May for the rest of my life, i would be totally okay with that.
