boobs are making a bit of a… comeback? not that they were ever out of fashion, cause boobs have always been great. but they have permeated a lot of visual things lately like tees and tops and totes and calendars and think pieces. they’re almost like that weird pineapple trend, except less spiky.
i have had an overwhelming response to the beautiful woven Kenyan bags that i posted about a while ago. the good news is that if all goes to plan i will hopefully start selling them in September! but in the meantime, if you’re into woven bags, here’s a nice round up for ya.
do you ever daydream about living an alternate life? the one i often have is that i reside on some beautiful island in Greece (100% influenced by this book) and i bake my own bread and drink wine at 11am and carry fruit in a straw basket and i’m perpetually tanned and i just wear natural cottons and linens. no? just me then. well – that’s how i felt my life could be like when i saw these beautiful bags and baskets by Milk & Paper.
i don’t think i will ever tire of braided & woven necklaces. the more i see, the more i like. Gamma Folk is a jewellery line by Brooklyn based designer Lily Piyathaisere, and i like her necklaces a lot. these are from Collection Two, but i think the entire shop is worthing checking out. her pieces are also sold over at Madesmith, which i featured last year.
Our vision is to combine traditional techniques with thoughtful, statement jewelry. Influenced by folk art, mysticism, pop culture and the bauhaus, Gamma Folk is a celebration of aesthetics, experiments in technique and the preservation of craft.
