Ruche & The Notebook

okay, i’ll admit it… i actually loved the notebook when it came out. 99% because of ryan gosling (obviously) & it is also quite aesthetically pleasing to watch. i could never watch it again because it seriously makes me cringe now and the story is pretty awful, but perhaps i can fast forward & just watch the gosling bits? anyway – had a bit of a trip down memory lane when i saw the Ruche 2011 Lookbook which took inspiration from the southern romance of the movie.

Hetterson

i first came across hetterson via anja who i also follow on flickr, she was the photographer for the beautiful new spring lookbook. wowsies. then i realised hetterson is the new name of designer hannah elise’s previous label bekvam. aah, it’s all making sense to me now. what a talent. shop the collection here.

Hetterson is a handcrafted line of clothing and knitwear. each piece is carefully made, with a strong focus on sustainable materials and production.

cavalier essentials

Cavalier Essentials seen via wit + delight

a line of vintage products designed for the rugged, yet sophisticated gentleman. … “If Steve McQueen carried a beat-up leather duffle bag on the back of his motorcycle; what would be in it and how would the products look?” This simple idea married an appreciation for lifestyle design and vintage accessories. All of the products possess a hand-made quality while responding to the modern influences of today’s culture.
