I received this beautifully crafted hat from Simon and Mary, and I am so incredibly in love with it. The style is the black Leah from their traditional ladies range and all I can say is that I find every excuse to wear it! Take a look at the AW ’14 lookbook.
Australian designers, Deborah Sams and Mary-Lou Ryan, together known as Bassike, present the light and urban collection for Resort 2015. The collection is perfectly set against the backdrop of the skate park, complimenting the tone and nature of the collection. The collection bares subtle hues with predominant colours of black, white and grey. There are loose silhouettes with the exaggerated and elongated designs, stemming off from classic lines. Bassike have maintained the balance between highly structured designs with tasteful sporty-chic.
French designer, Camille Tanoh has launched his second shoe model, “Proper Sneaker.” It’s sleek, elegant and you can only get it in white. Watch the video, directed by the talented Loren Denis. The video was what led me to this sneaker… it’s insanely creative and beautifully shot.
New York based designer, Rachel Comey, has just released her latest lookbook and it’s something to look forward to. Her simple designs are versatile and her lookbook integrates a range of patterns and shapes. The collection has such a wide range that one could not find a matching outfit, and that’s the beauty of this collection. I love the box cuts and denim.
Pichulik has just released their Autumn Winter 2014 collection and it looks magnificent. The collection was inspired by the photography of Helmut Newton, who took intimate portraits of powerful women in their own personal space. The idea is all about close up encounters and this collection can definitely give you the confidence to do so. The jewel tones and wooden parts, suede and agate stone, tassels and bold colours, the collection reflects the glamour of 70s disco and the psychedelic soul.
Famke Jewellery Design has launched their new online store and it’s pretty exciting! Check out the store here! Famke’s jewellery designs are unique and beautiful and one can always distinguish the design by the simplicity of some of the pieces and the unique design. Have a look and see what you think!
It only makes sense for adidas Originals to collaborate with Brazilian brand, The Farm, for the Spring Summer 2014 collection, as the world’s focus will be turning to Brazil this year anticipating the FIFA World Cup! The collection is incredibly colourful and full of tropical prints. Take a look at the lookbook!
Kate Moss has done another collection for Topshop but this time focusing on detail and fabrication to create more premium items. The model worked within four categories: Balearic, beachy island – inspired designs, Pyjama dressing done mostly with silk satins, Cocktail hour, which offers after dark ready tanks and dresses with beadwork and fringe, and finally Tailoring Noir, suiting and menswear details for Moss-acolytes.
Australian brand, Bassike, have released their Autumn Winter 2014 lookbook and have managed to combine two trends, and quite harmoniously at that. The combination of Italian milled cashmere, merino wool and bonded leather gives you the clean and simple lines together with the soft colour pallet of lights grey’s and dirty light pinks. Each outfit is tied together with a pair of Birkenstocks giving it a casual aspect. One thinks of comfort tied together with luxe fabrics.
