YEVU

YEVU

i love the internet for just this reason: discovering a Ghanaian inspired fashion label, started by an Australian print lover, thanks to a recommendation from an Aussie internet friend, who i have never met, and now lives in London. YEVU was started by Anna Robertson who, after a year of living…

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…

2013

a sure-fire way to know that the holiday season is upon us (apart from the christmas carols playing ad-nauseum in the supermarkets) is the sudden appearance of the new year calendar. just in case you needed to be reminded that 2012 is O-V-E-R. on to the next! here are some of my…

Give Some Art

my go-to gift, and also my favourite to receive, is a print or a piece of art for my wall (or floor, or shelf, or wherever i can squeeze it in due to impending space issues). 20×200 has a great gift guide going at the moment, which i think is…

Matthew Kavan Brooks

More Wall Space, Please

i change the pictures on my walls pretty regularly, and i’m gradually aiming to replace stuff i’ve printed out from the internet (yes, i’m on a budget – don’t judge) with real art made by talented people. vu de l’extérieur print by fieldguided: fin iii by richard roberts: summer fruit &…

these dresses at jill stuart are quite possibly my favourite pieces from all the a/w 2011 fashion week shows so far also love her fox & owl prints… really enjoying the fact that there’s so much colour & beautiful bold prints in some of the collections jonathan saunders house of…

tatsuro’s veggies

i’ve posted about tatsuro kiuchi before, whose work is consistently wonderful. his latest illustrations of various vegetables would be amazing as prints on a kitchen wall, no? any wall, for that matter.
