Les Composantes

i overslept this morning, and so rushed through my usual get ready & dressed routine in about 5 minutes – threw on jeans, shirt, cardigan and ran out the door… when i realised, it was curiously warm. my cardigan was making me uncomfortably hot. after months of revelling in my favourite season of all, it dawned on me that winter was over.

so it’s usually at this time of year that the fall/winter lookbooks & collections for our northern hemispherean cousins start trickling in, and i experience mixed emotions because on the one hand i love the feeling of everything thawing out in spring (including myself) – but i’m already jealous of the cool clothes that those going into autumn get to wear.

Les Composantes is a fashion label by self-taught french designer & vintage lover Morgane Sézalory. she releases new creations every month, and just launched her Autumn 2012 collection.

la casita de wendy

absolutely love the new Meditteraneo collection from la casita de wendy, made up of spanish designers Inés Aguilar and Iván Martíneza, who collaborated with illustrator Ana Sender to create yet another beautifully unique collection. you can see all their previous collections on their blog – be sure to check out the spring summer 2012 collection & the arts and crafts collection from 2010.

Inés and Iván, two designers from madrid are behind “la casita de wendy”. Respectively, they hold diplomas in architecture and philosophy and started designing clothes seven years ago. Their models are marked by strong use of colours, by original shapes, their star shaped and dotted motifs based on Iberian fairy tales.

Like Dreamers Do

i love this end of summer lookbook for Portland based shop Victory, photographed by forever-favourite Anja Verdugo and featuring a beautiful 1952 MG which was rebuilt by shop owner Nicole’s dad, an avid vintage car collector, for her very lucky mom (read about the behind the scenes story).

Josh Brolin for Band of Outsiders

Band of Outsiders is well known for their range of lookbooks featuring celebrities shot on polaroid. Kirsten Dunst is a regular model, as is Jason Schwartzmann. i like the latest one with Josh Brolin because he’s not your typical indie darling… and he looks good as a cowboy.

Nancybird S/S 2013

the Nancybird S/S 2013 collection is probably my favourite so far. the new line is inspired by the coastal landscape of Australia – bright daisies, lobsters,  warm sand, weather ship ropes, sparkling sea and sunshine. those lobsters make me smile.
