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…

Polder

Polder + April Showers

polder is a boutique in Paris that also has a girls line called april showers. originally i was just going to share the new polder spring 2016 collection, but was totally seduced by the kids line, too. The Parisian brand polder was created in 2000 by two sisters of Dutch origin, Madelon Lanteri-Laura and Natalie Vodegel.…

Plante SS16

Plante SS16

you may remember Plante from when i first posted about the brand in 2014. sisters Leah & Rebecca Plante have just launched their Spring 2016 collection – i love that classic green skirt, there’s almost nothing more beautiful to me than the combination of a blouse tucked into a long skirt. Plante…

Über den Wolken

Über den Wolken

i first visited Barcelona on vacation back in 2007 – pre-social media days. i was so excited by what a cool city it was, but also overwhelmed because i didn’t know how to tap into and find the real coolness of the city beyond the touristy stuff. there was no twitter…

Paloma Wool: Collection No. 5

Paloma Wool: Collection No. 5

it’s not often that i post about every collection of a brand, but so is the case with Paloma Wool. the latest collection from Barcelona based designer Paloma Lanna might be the most interesting yet, featuring collaborations with an illustrator and eight ceramic artists. Collection No. 5 revolves around a series…

Heinui FW15

Heinui FW15

if there’s one thing i can count on every year it’s that designer Claire Pignot is going to release a lovely new collection for her label Heinui. yep, just take a look at the FW15 collection. the Lenny dress is a particular favourite, and love the embroidery on the Luisa…

FARIS

FARIS

ever since Faris first contacted me about her jewellery line back in 2014 i have loved seeing her work progressing, and DAMN didn’t she knock it out of the park with her new collection! those earlashes (shown above) are simply a dream. FARIS is a jewelry line that distills complexity into a wearable…

Crescioni Spring 2016

Crescioni Spring 2016

Californian jewellery line Crescioni has a new Spring collection on the block, and i gotta say i love the big chunky pieces – especially all the brass earrings. women need to wear more jewellery at the beach, huh? i feel like this is a very cool department we’re not tapping. swimwear by…

Nice Things by Paloma S

Nice Things

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…

Paloma Wool | Miss Moss

Paloma Wool: Collection No. 4

the combination of Art + Fashion is pretty much my favourite thing ever, you only need to see all my posts dedicated to this to understand. that’s why i’m digging Collection No. 4 by Paloma Wool – with flavours of Picasso and Matisse, what’s not to like?

Tony Chestnut SS15

Tony Chestnut SS15

Easter always marks a change in season for me – over here we are obviously rolling toward winter, and this past weekend was no exception. we lit a fire for the first time in ages! it wasn’t even that cold, but it had to be done. similarly i’ve been noticing…

Levi's Vintage SS15

Levi’s Vintage SS15

i love the lookbooks by Levi’s Vintage Clothing because they always manage to almost fool me in believing they’re genuine vintage photos. remember this one? yeah. their latest lookbook takes inspiration from candid vintage collegiate fashion, which was famously documented by Japanese photographer Teruyoshi Hayashida  in the 1965 book Take Ivy. i actually blogged about…

Crescioni FW 15

Crescioni FW 15

it is the hottest day ever in Cape Town today, quite literally. at 42 °C we are officially the hottest city in the world right now. so the thought of swanning around in a desert is not super appealing, but the beautiful new Crescioni FW15 lookbook actually makes me consider the possibility for a…

Mansi Shah

Mansi Shah

Mansi Shah is a NY based studio that makes signature prints & products “inspired by the alchemy of image-making”. their launch collection is made up of eight varied patterns, all of which are also available as iPhone covers – i’m so into the Impasto one.

TOAST SS15
