Wiksten S/S 2012

usually i’d wait to see an entire collection before posting about it, but judging by the sneak peek and behind the scenes photos from the new S/S 2012 Wiksten collection by Jenny Gordy you know it’s going to be good. these pieces, including the beautiful jewellery, will be available in the Wiksten shop from mid-to late june. the photos were taken by Jennifer Causey – the talented photographed behind The Makers.

Tomboy Style Lookbook by Myrtle

Myrtle is a shop in Echo Park, LA owned by Whitney Bickers and featuring quality clothing and goods both vintage and by independent female designers. the new Spring 2012 lookbook was styled by Whitney with inspiration from Lizzie Garrett’s just released Tomboy Style book, and photographed by Megan McIsaac at Frank Lloyd Wright’s beautiful Hollyhock House at Barnsdall Park in LA. i’m also proud to spot a bag by South African designer Missibaba.

Caron Callahan

a sweet reader, Gabi, sent me the link to the Caron Callahan spring 2012 collection. not only is it beautifully designed and wearable, but the lookbook is set in an exquisite home that i wouldn’t mind lounging around in myself. i love that my readers know me so well…

Caron Callahan is a collection created for women who love beautiful clothes but don’t need to make a fuss about them. The company ethos is rooted in well-made, feminine clothes, while keeping in mind that they should be playful, purposeful and wearable. The label’s owner and designer, Caron Callahan, constantly inspired by her friends and neighbors, sets out to make clothes for a creative, spirited woman who loves fashion, but doesn’t necessarily follow it.

Arts & Science

love this simple yet striking way ARTS&SCIENCE displays their s/s 2012 collection

ARTS&SCIENCE, shop & brand which bases itself in Tokyo, offers a aifestyle as a whole with fashion as one important essence. -To Wear, To Dwell, and To Eat- The owner and also the creative director Sonya Park, who also works as a fashion stylist, believes that only ‘genuine quality’ can mature and starts to carry personal value and age and time only adds to the perfection of the quality. This leads to her philosophy that fashion is a ‘tool’ in daily life rather than a ‘tool’ for vanity.
