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 dress. oh also the Ernest jumpsuit is super badass. you can peruse everything on her online shop (ships worldwide!)
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 Nu Swim, clothes from Passenger. photography by Andrew Lee.
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.
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 that many up north are surfacing from tundra-like conditions, with spring dresses + bare legs popping up all over my Instagram.
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 it back in 2011. also check out this post featuring fashionable students at Princeton in 1969.
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 moment.
