Precious gold threads, twisting and turning through and around the ear . . . how can something so simple be so perfect? It’s a Kinsa Thing. And we’re obsessed.

Inspired by the colors of bright Mexican doorways and Henri Matisse, British milliner Laura Apsit Livens has designed a most playful and colorful collection of cloches, berets, trilbys and boaters for fall – and quite honestly, it’s her best collection yet.

I’m captivated by the way Romanian artist Aitch toggles between darkness and joyfulness in her illustrations. Not only have designers and brands like L’Occitane commissioned her folk-inspired work, the self proclaimed nomad has created works for wedding invitations, playing cards, and her own illustrated animal book – a work currently in progress. I can just stare at her work for hours and can’t help but dream that one day, she’ll create more wallpapers so that I can cover a room with her prints.
