Australian label Friend Of Mine‘s effortlessly cool aesthetic caught our attention several seasons ago with their covetable collections of uniquely cut basics, tailored trousers, rockabilly inspired outerwear, and wonderfully offbeat footwear. Whether it be with an engraved heel cap or floral cutouts, we absolutely adore the distinct details in their summer ready boots. Honestly, anyone who can execute a sick pair of boots is a friend of mine . . . so we’re letting them be yours too by giving away a pair of boots of your choosing! Simply leave a comment, like Friend of Mine on Facebook (check them out on Twitter too), and a winner will be selected at random on July 2nd. (Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Size and color subject to availability. Good luck! xx *** Contest now closed. Congrats to Monti)
Inspired by photographer Corinne Day‘s work for The Face, in the nineties, Jill Stuart turned out a uber-feminine collection with vintage floral prints and sheer white frocks. I honestly don’t think I can rest until the rose printed jumpsuit is mine . . .
While most people simply admire old photos, Irina Werning is more interested in how people would look and feel if they were to reenact them today. Several years ago, she started to ask people to go back to their past and recreate a moment in time – even down to the exact body positions and facial expressions! I’m so impressed that I am inspired to recreate one of my childhood images . . .
It’s always fascinating to see how much art can reveal about one’s personality and character. I’m inspired by co-founder and creative director of Grey AreaKyle DeWoody‘s eclectic and seemingly effortless mix of art in her Greenwich Village apartment. Each installment, along with new and found objects, works together to form a story – whether it be quirky, personal, or completely unintentional. That’s what art should be all about, right?
