Pitchouguina

Pitchouguina is a London based label with Russian origins, by designer Anna Pitchouguina. i love the combination of gold and pale pink and grey, and especially love the detailing on many of these pieces – making them interesting yet wearable.

‘Pitchouguina’ is a label based on emotions. It draws inspiration from everyday moments, everyday people, random words, awkward smiles and all the little things that can so easily go unnoticed. We aim to create wearable garments that will make memories and play a subtle but important part in our daily lives. With Russian roots and a studio in London we let our melancholic dreams inspire our clothing. By our own choice we are a little naïve, and maybe a little obsessed.

Gorman

i love Aussie brand Gorman – their prints just scream S U M M E R. and since us south africans, and our counterparts in the southern hemisphere, are going into spring i feel like this is the kind of stuff everyone should be wearing. at the moment we are still having some cooooold days, but perhaps if we, as a collective, wear beautiful bold prints it will force the sun to come out.

there is a distinctive handwriting that underpins all of gorman’s designs, from its whimsical signature prints, directional knitwear and distinctive colour palettes. for all of its vintage and tribal references, gorman is thoroughly modern and inspired by the everyday, and the local culture and artists that surround us.

Book/Shop

Book/Shop is an Oakland based online & brick-and-mortar shop that specialises in products and paraphernalia related to reading – of actual real life books, not the online kind. of course they have actual books for sale, but also deal in other interesting things like book related art & vintage posters (love this Read Instead print) and even small furnishings to keep your books organised.

We’re committed to the reading experience. The surprise of one page turning to the other. The little luxury of sitting in a great reading chair, inhaling the scent of a beautifully made book. The luscious heft of three or four good reads in a sturdy bookbag as you head out into the world. The hundred discoveries waiting at a used bookstore; the refuge of a library.

Seaworthy: Diosa

Marisa from Portland based jewellery label Seaworthy has just released her seventh collection Diosa, bringing together the attributes of softness and strength. the model has a bit of a Lady Sybil from Downton Abbey vibe, don’t you think? i could actually imagine Sybil rocking some kick ass knuckle rings. i’m also really into that beautiful Paso bangle  and the Aspa bracelet. such rad pieces – shop online here.
