Side Swept

It was all about sixties-mod at Gucci yesterday, which meant a throwback to side swept hair, dramatic Marianne Faithfull lashes, and perfectly winged eyes. This wasn’t the first time we saw the low maintenance do on the runway – Richard Chai, Peter Som and Proenza Schouler were all riding the textured deep side part this season. So pretty and easy to replicate, I’m actually tempted to suffer through the pain of growing out my bangs!

Sammy Slabbinck

Sammy Slabbinck combines different vintage photographs together to create surreal collages. By cutting up and redistributing the images, the Belgian artist plays with proportions and odd pairings. I especially enjoy the titles of his work like Solid Advice or The Pigeon Ranger.

Edie Parker

We’ve been obsessed with Brett Heyman’s retro-inspired, acrylic clutches since she launched Edie Parker a few years ago. Season after season, the designs just get more inventive and fun. Her latest collection of sapphire, coral and emerald inlaid versions are to die for – I especially love the faceted and circular shapes! Trés glam.

Come And Knock On My Door

Door knockers are the perfect first impression – they make a bold statement before anyone steps foot inside your home. I recently scored a vintage brass fox door knocker, which is a rare thing to see these days. In case you’re looking to add some flair to your front door, you can find great ones herehere, and via Etsy.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014

Inspired by the influential group of writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists who lived in the Bloomsbury quarter of London during the first half of the 20th century, Christopher Bailey traded Burberry‘s traditional plaid for boho flower motifs for his fall collection. Shearling jackets, trench coats, silk crepe dresses, scarves, toggle belts, handbags and booties were all drawn upon, free hand, with smudgy flowers and vines. It was all so beautiful and the styling was even better – with wool and cashmere blankets worn as shawls and long scarves draped around the body and cinched with belts. YES.
