We love shoes but Jenna Lyons loves shoes. I mean, loves. All of her 289 pairs to be exact. When the style icon talks about the inspiration behind and the making of J.Crew’s Italian shoe collection, which is designed in New York and then produced in a small workshop in Italy, we can’t help but “ooh” and “aah” over the collection’s traffic stopping color palette, sweet floral prints, and sparkly glitter accents. Killin’ it.
Cats painted in vintage wares, a shiba inu photographed in menswear, and creatures illustrated in dapper garb . . . clearly, we love portraits of animals in clothing over here at HWTF. And now, we’ve fallen for Yago Partal’s Zoo Book. The rhinoceros is so bad ass in his bomber jacket and the koala is just too adorable in his Hawaiian shirt! Which animal is your favorite?
Beauty may be her hertiage, but Aerin Lauder‘s true passion lies in home decor. Not only does she have a dreamy Aspen chalet and a glamourous Manhattan office to back it all up, Aerin recently launched her own lifestyle brand to include a collection of gilded home objets and accessories. And I’m buying into all it’s urbane glory. I mean, who doesn’t need a solid brass match striker?! Honestly.
As German photographer Sven Fennema captures dilapidated castles, abandoned palaces and decayed churches, I can’t help but wonder how these once impressive buildings have come to be forgotten. Whatever fate lies ahead for these spaces, it’s nice to see that their beauty will forever be restored through Sven’s photographs.
