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.

Uniqlo Undercover

trust Uniqlo to come up with one of the cooooooolest lookbooks i have seen lately (this entire year even?). Uniqlo Undercover is a collaboration between Uniqlo and Jun Takahashi of Undercover. i think i am lusting after the bugs more than the clothes (except for the kids collection, which i wish came in adult sizes.)

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.

Mes Dames A/W 12

it goes without saying that i fell in love with the Mes Dames A/W 12 campaign the minute i saw it, since it so beautifully combines my love for classic fashion and art. shot by photographer Anna Malmberg, the campaign takes inspiration from 19th century oil portraits and especially the work of Finnish painter Helene Schjerfbeck. Mes Dames designer Lisa Wikander will be showing her latest collection at Stockholm fashion week this year.

Mes Dames creates women’s wear in the intersection of Nordic minimalism and French sensuality. Using materials of the highest quality combined with fine tailoring, the label aims to provide each wearer with a sense of uniqueness and elegance. Mes Dames collects interesting, characterful women, be they historical heroines, fictional characters or present role models; each collection has its own muse.
