Jewels Huit

above: jewellery by Corey Moranis Jewels! here it is again, my sort of annual round up of cool new jewels out there… besides all the jewellery i blog about seemingly all year long. edition huit, ‘eight’ in french. huit. sounds like a whistle. and these jewels sure are pretty. *whistles* Corey…

Jewels by Joanne Burke

i feel like if Cleopatra had a personal jeweler Joanne Burke would have been her go-to gal. i mean of course i am imagining Liz Taylor as Cleopatra here, but the analogy stands. her pieces are hand sculpted in cast in bronze or gold. see more at her Instagram.

Goodies No. 30

how do you guys keep up with cool things to peruse (or even buy when you are flush) on the internet? i feel like much of my online time is dedicated to instagram / twitter, which aren’t highly shoppable. since i don’t go to the shops much anymore – and…

WAIF: Technicolor Melodrama

Gisele Human’s WAIF is going places. i feel like every time i see her work she has just leveled up. the new collection is outstanding, but the lookbook is equally gorgeous. everything from the photography to the styling and hair and makeup… wow. i feel like i want to hire…

Margot Molyneux AW17

i always love to see designers embracing a truly diverse clientele when it comes to their clothes, but especially the models they choose to represent them. South African designer Margot Molyneux’s AW17  collection features women of all sizes, but also of all ages – it’s so nice to see. if anyone…

Heinui SS17

i have such a soft spot for Heinui, i blogged about them for the first time 4 years ago! designer Claire Pignot’s latest collection for SS17 is superb as usual. i’m not sure which is my favourite, possibly this dress because it looks so comfortable. but this fitted one is also…

Minimalist swimwear by Lido

lucky me that i posted about La Muralla Roja the other day because i was subsequently contacted by Daria Stankiewicz. she is the creator of Lido, and their lookbook was coincidentally partly shot at La Muralla Roja. WHAT a beautiful swimwear brand. such perfectly simple suits and bikinis, and i especially love that tomato…

Crescioni Spring 17

oh my gosh i LOOOOOOOVE this lookbook! the location, the styling, the model – and of course the products. showcasing LA based Crescioni’s Spring 2017 collection, including a capsule collection of woven palm and brass jewellery, made in collaboration with artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico. The six styles are staples from Crescioni’s…

AH/OK: Bloom

what a beautiful new collection from Italian label AH/OK. you know why i like it in particular? because it combines some of my favourite things: colour, print, blooms and (currently) oversized fits. i can’t fit into anything, you guys. these pieces should hide my one-year-old-and-still-hanging-on baby weight. shop Bloom, and their…

Sheila-Madge Bakker

you may remember Andel Olivier’s astoundingly beautiful wedding dress that i featured a few years ago, it was designed by Sheila-Madge Bakker who, at the time, did not have a website. but hooray she does now – featuring her ready to wear collections as well as a wedding line. she’s actually also done a collaboration…

I wanna be a Flapper girl

i have a regular habit of browsing the dress section of ASOS, maybe because i’m always imagining i would have a special occasion to wear a dress to. not that i need an excuse to wear a dress, anyway, but these days it would quickly get covered by sticky fingers or…

Goodies No. 29

time for some GOODIES! first of all, the new Mara Hoffman swimwear is DELICIOUS. the above high-waisted bikini is my fave, also all of these… well, everything! if i needed a shower curtain i would definitely get this one by Quiet Town: these vessels by Sophie Eveleigh are gorgeous: my favourite emoji…

Animal Scarves by Nina Führer

quick! the baby is asleep and i have a few minutes to bust out a post, let’s gooooooooo! (this should be a new series huh??) these animal scarves by Nina Führer made me smile. it’s still stinking hot around here, but i would so wear one as soon as i got the…

Monochromatiques

at first when browsing through Paris based designer Isabelle’s shop Monochromatiques i simply appreciated the fine minimalist jewellery – and then i began to notice sublime little surprises: a tiny brooch of matchsticks, a curtain blowing in the wind, a popcorn pin, assemble-it-yourself jewellery inspired by baby’s building bricks, an ode to the…

Bonsergent Studio

every year around this time i start pining for winter. like really cold, icy winter. we still have about 2 of the hottest months to get through, but i’m hoping that when Axel’s first birthday swings around in May (!!) i’ll be wearing a winter coat. what kind of coat? i…
