Though my knowledge of video games and Japanese anime is practically nonexistent, I find myself endlessly amused by Pokémon & Fashion – an online destination where adorable Pokémon characters and highbrow fashion editorials and campaigns magically collide. Lighthearted and clever, it’s a refreshing reminder that fashion shouldn’t always be taken so seriously.
Earlier this month Lauren and I escaped city life with our dear friend Grace, of The Stripe, for a weekend chock-full of sun and DIY. With an abundant supply of rhinestone and brass curb chain, we decided to try weaving the components together to make our own collar necklaces. It was fun to see how wonderfully different the pieces turned out – each so fabulous in their own unique way! Honestly, isn’t that the best part about DIYing with friends?
We’re excited to be sharing an exclusive sneak peek into Free People‘s September catalog, which launches tomorrow and has us anticipating cooler temperatures. Wherever the Free People girl may go this fall, she’ll always look effortlessly cool in worn-in denim, animal prints, studded accessories and vintage-inspired coats. Love!
If wearable art is your thing, then please let me introduce you to Swash London. Husband and wife duo Sarah Swash and Toshio Yamanaka have designed a collection covered in hand-drawn and painted motifs, ranging from flowers to animals and inner clock workings to equestrian bits and everything in-between. Paired with the most fabulous pom pom hats, how can you not be fascinated by these far out ensembles?
Burning Man takes place this week in Northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. It’s hard to believe that once a year tens of thousands of people gather to create Black Rock City, an entirely fabricated town dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. And after the week is over, there is absolutely no trace of human life leftover whatsoever. Honestly, amazing. Have any of you participated in this annual gathering?
