online shop

Clare Elsaesser

artist Clare Elsaesser has a very popular Etsy shop where she sells prints (and originals) of her paintings. she just released some new works, including these sweet studies which i really love. she’s been documenting them on Instagram too.

My paintings are inspired by daydreams, retreat and the formidable nature outside my window. I live and work in the tiny hillside town of Jenner, California, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean, about an hour and a half north of San Francisco with my artist husband Kai Samuels-Davis.

MATTER

beautiful new styles from MATTER

September is a month of the wind changing, and we feel the weather’s momentum intimately, given rain and shine affects when we print what. It’s a departure from previous editions with darker prints on lighter backgrounds, with a sense of transience and weightlessness. In monsoon season the rains mean we can only print this way, and of course, we go with the tides.

Hem

so i have been keeping one eyeball on Hem – a new online shop that’s sort of positioning itself like the Everlane or Warby Parker of furniture. high-end design that’s simple, affordable, beautiful and designed to last. they are currently taking pre-orders on their debut collection.

Hem means Home. We create original, timeless furniture and interior accessories together with the most exciting and talented designers of today. Our design philosophy is to create pioneering pieces together with designers from around the globe. Our pieces are something to hold on to for a very long time. The design and production teams at Hem are passionate about materials and details. And, we only work with the best factories around the world.

there’s section in their shop called Razzle Dazzle which endeared me to them immediately.

Mono Wardrobe. Monodrobe.

this past winter i realised that almost every single thing i bought was black and i would wear it with white or denim or whatever – but overwhelmingly black, nonetheless. and i was more than okay with that. i am currently mourning the impending loss of my rad MONODROBE with the oncoming heat we’ll be experiencing soon (shudder… or should i say, sweat?)

so it pleases me to see that ASOS is embracing my personal dressing taste, with so much good monodrobe stuff happening over there. MONODROBE. you heard it here first.

just click on the fancy little icons to be taken to the item!

Tiro Tiro: Cercis

dearest readers, i apologise sincerely for enabling your shopping habit. but the Tiro Tiro Cercis collection is too good. the Cercis necklace is probably my favourite.

Tiro comes from the latin word for a beginner or novice. Tiro Tiro embraces an era of experimentation and improvisation, drawing from our years of practice and honed expertise and then making things up as we go. Evolving and exploring new mediums and techniques, we allow the materials to guide us, finding that some of our best work happens by accident. In addition to jewelry, we look forward to offering limited runs of small sculptural works and complementary wares.
