Rill Rill SS14

holy hell, jewellery designer Katie Freedle has outdone herself with her new SS14 collection for Rill Rill! for real, real (sorry). i posted about her previous collection last year, and what a progression. shop it here.

The RillRill SS14 collection incorporates a material less commonly used in jewelry making, marble. The designs embody the striking contrast between negative and positive, industrial and natural. The elements are eloquently combined to create a dynamic use of symmetry.The copper and brass accents bring a modern flare to the ancient marble.

Paloma Wool

Barcelona based Paloma Lanna just launched Paloma Wool, in which her interests in fashion and analog photography converge. the collection of limited-edition sweatshirts is produced in Spain, featuring Paloma’s own photographs. there are also some beautiful separate pieces made from natural fabrics, focusing on timeless silhouettes.

Paloma Wool is my name and the name of this project, which is about getting dressed and about space or ideas that are created around the act of getting dressed. The brand, created as an artistic project, employs different forms of expression such as sculpture, and video art, collaborates with artists from varied disciplines and highlights the role of photography.

i love the sweatshirts, especially this one. but DAMN those marbled pieces are insanely cool. also love the classic Camila dress! ok who am i kidding, i love everything.

Des Petits Hauts

i’m not sure when pineapples became the fruit of the moment, but they are certainly enjoying their day in the sun – popping up in every lookbook, photoshoot and fashion editorial i come across these days. WELL. maybe it’s time for bananas, right? or how about a juicy mango? i’ll be taking bets on the next fruit du jour.

that said, french label Des Petits Hauts has also brought our spiky friend into their new summer range. as well as other lovely basics that are so simple and french it makes me feel like taking a trip to the countryside with a basket of fruit (pineapples) and a bottle of wine. PS: they only deliver to Europe, unfortunately!

Frances May x Church & State

Frances May was one of the first independent shops i discovered online, many many years ago now, whose inventory and general vibe i really fell in love with. which is thrilling to me because they are now a proud sponsor of the blog (yay!) they just recently relaunched their website – showcasing big beautiful images and wonderful lookbooks – as well as their usual collection of amazing clothes for men and women.

they have also just launched their first in-house collection, a collaboration with Portland designers Church & State.

Rachel Turk & Nathaniel Crissman of Church & State and Pamela Baker-Miller of Frances May put their heads together to re-interpret favorite Church & State silhouettes with a Frances May twist. The dresses (each named after their grandmothers) are a curation of dark florals, thoughtful design and even a reversible dress.

the lookbook was shot by Caesy Oney. you can shop the entire collection here. if you had to tell me tomorrow that i could only wear pieces from Frances May for the rest of my life, i would be totally okay with that.

For Oms

For Oms is an interesting jewellery line based in China. they also have an online shop.

The original intention when ForOms was founded is trying to enlarge the space inside every piece of jewelry, to fill it with spirit and knowledge, therefore turn jewelry into a carrier to convey concept and ideology. Every piece of jewelry from ForOms is the result of a deep exploration and research under some themes, the concept of them are mostly based on the discussion of human existence and how it’s interacting with everything else, the thinking and interpretation of different world outlooks. They are to be worn as the carrier of the owner’s spirit and thought, as an outer storage of the wearer’s inner self-expression.

Association

i distinctly remember really loving & pinning away the beautiful Portland home of John and Jen Vitale that was featured on Freunde von Freunden last year. so imagine my delight (more things ought to be delightful) when Jen emailed me about their new venture Association - a lifestyle shop that offers items made by their friends and fellow creatives.

Association is us. We collaborate with friends, fellow creatives and artists to offer you a carefully curated selection of unique, quality goods, both new and found, that are a reflection of a shared appreciation for living an intentional lifestyle.

you can browse their new launched online shop, which includes new and vintage goods like ceramics, apothecary, textiles, jewellery, vinyl and a small selection of clothing – notably these rad smocks (which you can see in the lookbook) by State The Label. they also sell their own brand of handmade cutting boards, leather wallets and driftwood + clay mobiles that are handmade by Jen & her husband John.

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.
