Her

if there is one movie you need to see right now, it is Her. i knew the vague premise of the film before i watched it, i might even have been a little skeptical, but i chose not to watch any trailers or read anything about it before viewing. that is why i’m not going to tell you anything about the story or give you my opinion on the characters or what develops – i just want you to watch it. Her is visually stunning, the art direction and styling is wonderful. it is just an absolute joy for the eyeballs. go see it!

Everything In Its Right Place

Need Supply Co has been doing some amazing lookbooks lately, a particular favourite of mine was It’s In The Bag which featured those rad Falconwright pouches. they have just collaborated with Jennifer Hagler of A Merry Mishap who, if you don’t follow already, has incredible taste & such a beautiful aesthetic – be sure to follow her blog, pinterest and instagram. she is also a talented jewellery maker.

Jennifer shot Need Supply Co’s home goods collection in her own home, and her clean and monochromatic aesthetic is a natural pairing to showcase products from Fort Standard, Fredericks & Mae, Cold Picnic, and more.

Gather

my friends Mariah & Amy are two of the most stylish and talented people i know. they started their business Gather a few years back, styling events and putting together new spaces like the geniuses they are. i’m so excited to finally share more of their work with you as i just finished their new website!

you might remember the gorgeous Flower Safari group exhibition that i shared with you last year – yep, Gather was behind that. they are also preparing to launch a new group exhibition in April called Forts (check out the poster i did for that) – so if you’re in Cape Town be sure to go check it out.

i’m very very lucky to have these two gals around, as they’re going to help me with my own wedding. (yesssssssss!!!!)

attribute portraits

i bookmarked these portraits by jelmar geertsma before i even had the blog, and by some happy circumstance rediscovered them this week when i was trawling through old favourites on a mission to find something else (don’t you love it when that happens?) things organised neatly and portraiture all in one = yes. jelmar explains,

series of portraits i’m making of my family … the portraits are made up of attributes that each of us have for our hobbies or work. the upper-right corner shows painted portraits as well, which are painted by my father.

hilda grahnat

I am a 22 year old graphic design student, born and raised in the dark forests of Sweden. I take pictures to remember, to preserve a passing moment and to distinguish interesting details from their otherwise average surroundings. I love traveling and take my best pictures when I travel. I have a fondness for all things vintage, typography and morning light. I have spent most of my life thinking I cannot draw. I am not yet convinced of the contrary, but at least now I am trying.

well said, hilda. her vintage items styled by colour are a dream…

fun in the garage

my friend amy and i decided to do a photoshoot. she had all these vintage clothes and i had my mom’s fancy digital nikon (which i didn’t know how to use). we also had a garage, a white sheet (backdrop), a standing lamp (professional lighting), curlers (that we also didn’t know how to use), crappy makeup and our wits.

most of these came out pretty well actually. they have a kind of seventies glamour, farrah fawcett, amateur soft porn in the garage element to them, which was our EXACT aim. i’m glad we did it because that entire wardrobe was consequently stolen when amz moved to joburg for work.
