What perfect timing. This is a lookbook so good, that it’s actually easing the pain of summer’s immanent end. Sessùn‘s latest collection is all about layering sumptuous textures and rich colors – it’s everything we love most about dressing in cold weather. Hooded cotton sweatshirts, plaid shirts, and wool knits are paired with heavyweight linen, corduroy, and vinyl coated pants and topped with puffy jackets and long woven coats. It’s the start of September and I feel inspired and ready to embrace fall.
Brazilian born model Mari Giudicelli had just graduated from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology before starting her eponymous shoe label. Inspired by her love of vintage wares and appreciation for utilitarian comfort, her first collection has launched with only four simple silhouettes with strong details: mules with high vamps and low, wooden block heels, fur lined flat boots, lizard skin loafers and woven soled slide sandals. Production is currently limited as they are being produced in small batches in a family run factory in her beloved Brazil but we have a feeling demand will quickly catch up to this emerging designer.
The blush painted kitchen, the hanging copper pots, ripped pages of inspiration taped straight onto the living room walls, French toile wallpaper, and one sick pineapple lamp . . . there isn’t anything about food blogger Skye McAlpine‘s London flat that I don’t love, love, love. It looks so beautifully cared for and well lived in, I just want to cozy up to any of her many vintage chairs with a good book and a homemade slice of pie. But instead, I’m rushing off to the paint store in search of the perfect light pink paint because I’m absolutely convinced that I, too, need blush walls somewhere – anywhere! – in my own house.
If you’re looking for sunnies with a retro and glamorous vibe, white cat eye frames might be the right amount of drama you crave. I’m loving the narrow shape and stark white tone of Kate Young for Tura‘s version and the softer, pearlized effect of Gucci‘s gold and acetate shades. White out, alright!
