Jane Sews S/S 2013

i’ve been waiting for the release of the new collection from Durban-based Jane Sews ever since spying some sneak peaks on their Instagram (especially those cute sandals). they just released this sweet lookbook, which features that iconic Loves Me, Loves Me Not side table from Cape Town based furniture designers Vogel. i own a few Jane Sew pieces myself, so I plan to add a few more to my collection – especially love that blue layered midi dress & the sweet button down skirt.

WSAKE

here is a sweet new small summer collection from WSAKE, who i featured previously in my Jewels post. a father and daughter duo from Regensburg in Germany, WSAKE mainly makes beautiful jewellery – but they also create small editions of objects & postcards. i especially love their wreath & coral pendants and these clever vase caps. check out all their wares at their online shop.

WSAKE jewellery and objects are designed and hand made by the father-daughter-team Anna & Waldemar Artmann. He’s a silversmith with 50 years of experience and an own workshop where everything is hand made. She actually studied graphic design but has all the while worked in the mentioned workshop and after she had graduated, we’ve started to work together on our venture WSAKE, where we’re  trying to combine centuries worth of craftsmanship with contemporary yet timeless design to create one of a kind durable pieces of jewellery.

South2 West8

thanks to Tomboy Style for introducing me to South2 West8, a Japanese line of classic outdoor sportswear and accessories. their bags are, interestingly enough, produced in the USA – and take influence from heavy duty outdoor bags, particularly those manufactured in the 70s & 80s (Filson came to mind). you can shop their entire range online, in the US from Maas & Stacks and Inventory and in the UK from Couverture & The Garbstore and The Bureau Belfast.

Baggu Giveaway!

Miss Moss Baggu Giveaway!

i wanted to keep my cool about this giveaway but i simply CANNOT. i have been a fan of Brooklyn based legends of the bag world Baggu for a long time, they “make simple, high quality bags in bright colors that fill many uses so you can own less stuff.” you’ll definitely recognise their famous original Baggu re-usable shoppers, and you’ve probably seem some of their other rad wares around like the leather baggu and the drawstring purse. bottom line, they rule.

Baggu just launched their Basic Tote - a simple daily tote in the softest of leathers that comes in eight different colours. and not just the usual suspects, either. i can’t pick my favourite hue – but can you?

go to the Baggu website and check out all the Basic Tote colours (do it, do it now) then come back here and tell me in the comments which colour, by the correct name, is your favourite… and that’s the one you stand the chance to win!

follow Baggu on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out more about this amazing company, and be sure to visit their showroom in Brooklyn if you’re ever in the area code.

the giveaway is open to all readers worldwide. if you are outside the US your package might be subject to your country’s import duties / taxes. only one Baggu Basic Tote is up for grabs. giveaway closes Thursday 18 July. winner will be drawn at random.

Scout & Catalogue

oooof i really LOVE the new bags & clutches from Scout & Catalogue. holy moly, that Yelapa Leather Tote is something else (the handles + hardware are gorgeous, too). am also very taken by that Galileo’s Moon silk scarf. check out their website and online shop for more.

Scout & Catalogue is heavily influenced by the bohemian beach culture of Mexico. We strive to make pieces that remind you of afternoons at secret beaches, sun kissed skin, and all day siestas.

Nadia Tarr

Nadia Tarr is a former dancer & choreographer turned fashion designer – and you can definitely see that influence in her beautiful, simple silhouettes. i love love love her midi & maxi dresses, and would honestly want one in every colour & pattern if i had my way (though if i had to choose i’d say this one and this one are my favourites). there’s something about these classic shapes that really make a woman look so refined… and want to have a jaunt on the Riviera, possibly.

Myrtle

i was lucky enough to get a sneak peak of the new lookbook for LA-based shop Myrtle over the weekend, which just launched today. it was shot by Megan McIsaac (who shot the previous Myrtle lookbooks) and Laura Taylor – and instead of getting models they photographed each other, which is why the lookbook is called Double EP. that’s a bit of a stroke of genius, if you ask me. the newly renovated Echo Lake in Echo Park, LA was the setting. you can shop Myrtle’s wares online here and be sure to follow the adorable Whitney on Instagram where she often showcases their new arrivals.

Now open for a year and a half, the shop is still focused on independent female designers and you’ll see many familiar names here: Samantha Pleet, Dusen Dusen, Gretchen Jones, Feral Childe, In God We Trust, Wrk-Shp and Filly. There are many new designers too as we keep an eye out for the next wave of designing ladies – Reif, SJO, Nettie Kent, and Willow Knows!
