lookbook

Yo Vintage! Spring!

i noticed yesterday that a lot of people were tweeting Spring! Spring! and this coincided with a lot of new lookbooks in my inbox celebrating the change in seasons (coincidentally i wore BOOTS this week for the first time in months so i am equally happy).

Yo Vintage has just released their fun new Spring lookbook as well, featuring the usual vintage goodness (you HAVE to browse their vintage section – they has such great pieces) and also featuring new bags by designers Falconwright and Primecut.

Eat Me! Bread and Butter

today i went down the superb rabbit hole that is Korean online shop Eat Me! Bread and Butter. or is it just Bread and Butter? or possibly just Eat Me… i’m not entirely sure. you see, most of the site is in Korean of course. but this much i can gather: they make beautiful clothing, and they are SO damn cool. there seems to be a mix of vintage, custom made and collaborative pieces for sale – and they are popular, judging by the “sold out” signs on many of the pieces.

i for one am taken by this insane oversized neoprene coat (sold out!), this slouchy breton stripe sweater and the gorgeous pleated skirts. the photography is also just really great to look at. well, there is a ton to discover at Bread and Butter. and if you’re ever in Seoul maybe go down the rabbit-hole yourself…

La Casita de Wendy: Sisterhood

designers Inés and Iván of La Casita de Wendy have just launched their new collection Sisterhood at Paris Fashion Week. the entire collection has been produced by traditional artisans & craftsmen in their native Spain, using natural fabrics such as wool, silk and cotton. for this collection they also worked with natural dyes for some of their handmade scarfs. that huge patchwork scarf in the first picture is un. real. also love that beautiful thick embroidery and of course that lush illustrative dress.

Our new collection is inspired on XIX century women such as Lizzie Siddal, Georgie Macdonald, Effie Gray, Jane Morris or Julia Prinsep. They were models, writers, painters, actresses,… and they also played a role as muses of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. They all shared the same original ideas about life and lived as outsiders in a very male society dominated by a very strict point of view and narrow traditions. This is the way in which we wanted to honour all these mysteriouswomen who were part of one of the most important European art movements. It is also a homage to all the women who had lived in the shadows.

Fort Standard

if you have read this blog for any length of time you will be familiar with Fort Standard, who are known for their awesome bottle openers, and with photographer Brian W. Ferry – both who i have featured a number of times. so Brian shot the new line of home products by the talented duo (they are friends in real, actual life), a wonderful collaboration if i ever did see one. you can see Fort Standard’s new products here – i particularly LOVE those marble platters.

Fort Standard is a contemporary Industrial Design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Their collaborative work is an ever-evolving dialog between their unique perspectives and their shared approach to progressive design thinking. Working primarily in long lasting natural materials, their approach to design is often geared towards using traditional production methods in innovative ways. Having developed a distinct form language rooted in simplicity and functionality, their attention to detail, connections and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a “warm-contemporary” aesthetic.

FARIS

Faris Du Graf is an artist & jewellery designer from Seattle whose line FARIS has a new collection & lookbook called Tropical Modernism. the jewellery itself is beautifully unique, and the ultra creative lookbook just adds to its overall awesomeness. you can buy the pieces at their online shop. love those jade coloured earrings and that pineapple ring.

Inspired by the shadowed silhouettes of tropical canopies found in the urban and natural landscapes. Hand-carved pineapple palms that crown a hand. Jade sunrises to charm. Fans hinged from lobes and cool a shoulder. Each piece shares a sense of ease and intention.

Young Frankk SS14

oh i do love me a new season of Young Frankk! it’s pretty cool to see how designer Christine Young has developed her style since her hammered brass pieces kind of exploded on the internet a few years ago. there’s always something fresh and new to expect from her, and the SS 2014 collection is evidence of that.

the lookbook was shot by Cameron Charles Lewis, modeled by Diane Nguyen & clothing provided by Willow Knows.

Ölend

spotted this lookbook for Barcelona based backpack makers Ölend on thisispaper, and i am particularly taken by the sweet styling of high-waist jeans and chunky knits. that’s exactly how i would imagine myself if i was travelling through the north of England on a cold day (or whatever). there would be a flask with some hot coffee in that backpack, that’s for sure. can you tell that i’m longing for cold weather? it’s just too damn hot here right now. the lookbook was photographed by Carlota Guerrero.

Ölend is a brand of handmade bags in Barcelona founded by Adriana Rios Dumon and Fran in late 2012. His intention is to offer a product that recovers the essence and style of backpacks used by the climbers in the 40s and 50s. Backpacks are custom-made, under the Olend philosophy, summarized in the taste for things well done, with soul and patience.
