Nandi Naya

i discovered jewellery line Nandi Naya randomly while browsing one day, and judging by the name i wondered to myself if there was a South African link somewhere. turns out the designer behind the label is Hleziphansi Zita, and the line is named for her daughter, Nandi. Hleziphansi Zita was born and…

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…

Collection No. 5 revolves around a series…

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

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?
