lookbook

Datter

Kaye Blegvad has just released a new collection & killer lookbook for her jewellery line Datter. she collaborated with photographer & artist Sabine Timm aka Virgin Honey who makes these amazing compositions out of found bits of beach trash, cut paper, tiny furniture, bottle caps and plants. i LOVE it. i love it. so refreshing and such a nice way to end off the week.

Some of the new pieces are developed from earlier ones – expanding, cutting up, or repeating familiar designs, and others are completely new. Sabine’s photos have a real sense of humour and wonder about the world in them, I’m kinda obsessed. I wanted a lookbook that was sort of abstract, working with colour and shape, to fit with the more abstract new collection, and she’s done it so well.

you can shop Datter here. picking a favourite piece is kind of impossible. these needle earrings are nuts though. and the laurel necklace is so beautiful.

Elizabeth Suzann

here’s an update from the Elizabeth Suzann (previously blogged about here) whose new SS2014 collection is simple and lovely. these clothes feel like the height of summer to me. as i’m typing this it’s POURING with rain outside my window, and we seem as far away from summer as can be – but i know that in the blink of an eye it’s going to be hot here again. in which case i might try to emulate this lovely collection.

you can shop it here.

Faris: Louise

remember Faris? here’s their lovely new jewellery collection Louise. shop here.

For fall/winter I’ve tapped into my influential roots ; modern art. Referencing eras from Bauhuas to Memphis Milano, LOUISE came to be. Named after a favorite icon, Louise Nevelson, for her bold style and pioneering persona. The entire collection takes queues from moments in 20th century modern art – Calder-like kinetic movement, Cubist-style forms, Mondrian minimalism and the playful energy of Sottsass. LOUISE is an ode to this great era of influence.

Art Direction : Jessica Carter | Photographer : Erich Ruff | Model : Shemmai Torres

Another Feather: Pearl

Hannah Ferrara is one of my favourite people to follow online, not only because of her beautiful jewellery line Another Feather, she’s also a fine, fine Instagrammer. she has just launched the new collection for her line, Pearl. she styled the beautiful lookbook herself and it features another stylish woman modelling the pieces – Madelynn Hackwith Furlong (who has a great blog and rad apartment that i posted about before). the photos were taken by Caylon Hackwith who is Madelynn’s husband. so there you go – one seriously cool team.

Portland-based maker and artist Hannah Ferrara began making minimalistic jewelry after searching long & hard for the pieces she herself wanted to wear. Inspired by her travels, minimal design, ancient relics, and an appreciation for well made objects and heirlooms, her line Another Feather includes minimal metal made jewelry and simple everyday adornments.

Josi Faye

Josi Faye is a line of knitwear by Nashville based designer Han Starnes, who named the line after her mother. Josi Faye focuses on traditional textile methods and sources high quality natural fibers from local farms. each piece is created using the age-old technique of hand-spinning and is produced in limited runs from their Nashville workroom. the beautiful lookbook for her SS14 collection was shot by Laura Dart on a farm in Oregon, where her wool is grown.

I turned to some new fibers for us this season – cotton and silk. Similar to the philosophy we’ve brought to our wool sourcing, the cotton fiber has been carefully selected from one of the few US Organic Cotton farms. One-hundred percent of the cotton is undyed and unbleached, and all of the processing has been done here in the US. We have also included two wool pieces – a new, lightweight hat using undyed brown sheep’s wool as well as a short sleeve top, using our Wyoming-grown wool.

you can buy their lovely pieces online.

Ouur

if you’re a Kinfolk follower then you might already know about their new venture that was announced yesterday – Ouur. Kinfolk founder Nathan Williams was kind enough to send me some information on their new collective brand; which offers a seasonal line of apparel, publications (incl Kinfolk) and home goods. i also got a peek at the AW14 Ouur Collection. the line is influenced by Scandinavian & Japanese cultures, both of which consistently focus on simplicity in design, and have placed high value on doing more with less.

Ouur’s range of apparel is made using textiles such as linen, cotton and wool. Created with a sharp attention to detail, classic silhouettes and a neutral color palette, each item has been made with an emphasis on comfort and utility. The pieces in the collection will be interchangeable, functional and wearable in all seasons.

the Ouur collection is currently available in Japan, and will be released later this year in the US. to stay updated follow Ouur on Instagram and Facebook.
