Never before had I heard of Ter Et Bantine until this mohair-like, floral printed jacket caught my eye. It’s stunning. And so is the rest of the collection with its wearable array of outerwear, skirts and trousers – all very understated and elegant. Not to much is known about the illusive designer, Manuela Arcari, despite having been with the label since it’s launch in 1992 however, Ter Et Bantine is now on our radar.
Canadian artist Amy Alice Thompson has won me over with her Roadtrip series. It doesn’t get better than classic cars and campers out on the open road. So inspiring and so lovely to look at – I’m looking around my house for where I could make room for one of her works of art!
To Birkenstock or not to Birkenstock? That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to reject the 90s slipper, or to take arms against the naysayers and wear the double strapped Arizona Birkenstock with casual-cool pride. Aye there’s the rub!
J.Crew is for crazy for color. And we are totally grateful for this obsession. I mean, have you ever noticed the color palette in the corner of their catalogs and wondered exactly how many shades of pink they must play with to get that perfect shade?! 310 shades, apparently. You’ve got to check out this Wes Anderson-like video, which gives us a sneak peek into J.Crew’s color library, and see just how much goes into a single color. Amazing!
