damn there’s some nice stuff at & Other Stories at the moment. correction: always. they always have nice stuff. i particularly like all their dresses right now, and especially the collaboration with Rachel Antonoff which is super fun.
Nadinoo is one of those sweet indie brands that has been online since i can remember. British designer Nadia Izruna’s love of clothing and the desire to sew up cheerful, well-designed womenswear spurred her on to start her own label in 2009. her new collection The Good Life was influenced by Nadia’s move to the English countryside.
Nice Things. no, not those nice things, but rather an awesome fashion label from Barcelona. and not just any brand – but the family business of Paloma of Paloma Wool (see my post about her most recent collection here). started by her parents, Paloma Santaolalla and Miguel Lanna, the company is run today by this creative mother & daughter team.
last night i was half dozing on the couch after a long day, Anton was flipping through the channels, and somehow we got sucked into watching Anchorman 2. which is probably one of the silliest movies ever created. it’s pretty funny, even hilarious in parts, but what i loved the most was the 70s styling & costume design – especially the outfits that Veronica Corningstone wears.
if i could somehow magically transfer the talents of one amazing person to myself, it would be the creative abilities of Tanya Ling. she is a renowned designer & illustrator, working for the likes of Vogue, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Selfridges, Nars – the list goes on and on. she’s also an accomplished artist, you can see her work here, and a fashion designer.
the first thing i noticed about new British label Finery were the interesting cuts, shapes and lines that form the basis of their debut collection. the clothing is exciting and modern (and different!) but also classic enough that you can wear one of their pieces forever.
