So, when I saw who was recently featured on Industry of One, I figured it was high time they appeared on the blog again! And if you haven’t heard of the lovely Yas Imamura, of Quill & Fox fame (under which rock were you hiding?) then look no further my friends…
For the full interview, and many more, pop on over here xx
So, it seems ‘blooms’ are trending on my blog lately…hehe…sorry guys. Must be that summer feeling in the air! Anyway, I discovered Blooming Leopold a few weeks back, and just had to share. So here are a few of my favourites from Lauren’s Spring Summer 2012 collection. Lust away, my friends…lust away.
PS: If any of you are interested, I’ve recently joined Pinterest and Instagram…so feel free to follow some of my favourite finds. And thanks again to all of you for showing me some love xx
A couple of weeks ago, I was ooh-ing and aah-ing over Scout & Catalogue’s S/S 12 lookbook, over here. Well, here they are again – in all their glory! Their new Fall/Winter 2012 campaign is absolutely to die for! The scarves are stunning, and the clutches, the clutches…oh my! How on earth would one ever choose, well, just one? Ha! You don’t necessarily have to. They are all here at your disposal, with each one handmade to order. How awesome is that? It’s like receiving your own unique gift, made specifically for you, by some pretty spectacular people. What more could you ask for? Except, perhaps another one…xx
So, the latest collection from the brilliant, Twenty-seven Names, has been getting a great deal of exposure lately – and completely well-deserved, of course!
But I thought I’d share with you, my favourite campaign from this lovely label…the Portrait Series for Nine.Lives – Spring/Summer 2012/13. I know it’s a season late, but I figured since we are only now entering our Spring season, it’s still relevant. Ha! And of course, the token cat…just for good measure xx
A one-stop shop, full to the brim with awesome originals – Pour Porter has an ever-growing list of designers housed within their realms. How, how, how did I only find out about them now?
“Pour Porter (“Pour Por-tay”) Shop, sprung from a passion for the exceptional, the independent, and the innovative. We seek to find and offer designers with a vision for the original- designers whose imaginations are their primary creative guides. While we don’t exclusively strive to offer socially responsible, environmentally conscious products, many of the labels we carry are strongly dedicated to these ethical principals.”
I’m in absolute awe of their S/S2012 Lookbook, and if that’s not enough for you, they even have a blog – so you’re sure to be kept up to date with the most recent additions to their store. Honestly, my eyeballs are in heaven! And with that, Pour Porter has just been catapulted to the top of my lust-have list…and yes, I’m talking about the entire store!!!
Look at this amazing lookbook from The Weaver House. My oh my, be still my beating heart!!! Shot completely on polaroid and 35mm film, this was too good not to share. Apologies in advance for the massive amount of images, but I think you’ll agree with me, they were all so enchanting, it was way too difficult to choose. Enjoy xx
The clothes…the light…the photography…the FLOWERS *swoon* Please do yourself the biggest favour, and have a look at the latest collection from Scout & Catalogue. The entire package is just, well, breathtaking.
“Scout & Catalogue is heavily influenced by the bohemian beach culture of Mexico. We strive to make pieces that remind you of afternoons at secret beaches, sun kissed skin, and all day siestas.”
I love, love, LOVE getting lost in the world of Etsy – and I’m pretty darn sure I’m not the only one – I literally fall in lust with something new everyday! And it is so inspiring, for me as a fellow designer, to see the creativity emerging from our generation. It really makes my little heart so happy to see all things handmade and beautiful. Yay.
So…while browsing around there this morning, I stumbled upon these bags. Holy moly!!! I need to have on in my life. But then, which colour to choose. They’re all so lovely. And I know the whole geometric thing has been completely overdone lately, but I don’t care – these bags are just, wow.
All the way from Lithuania, this husband-wife couple create their magic with the use of natural cottons and genuine leather details.
These are just a few examples from their shop, Coriumi, so go check them out, and let me know what you think xx
