Minju Kim, a graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, won H&M‘s annual design competition last year and had small capsule collection sold at select stores and Opening Ceremony in October. I’m kicking myself for missing the boat on this – perhaps the anticipation of Marant-insanity threw my attention off kilter. Kim brings her fascination with Manga to life, with inventive silhouettes – the leather collar worn over a pleated trapeze dress and the wavy edged, cape-like sweater are insanely cool. And the bright yellow jacquard cocoon coat?! Forget about it. Can’t wait to see more from this talent.
I love this mid-century home in Palm Springs. Renowned architect William Cody originally built the home in 1962 and after it was restored nearly 50 years later, it still maintains it’s original charm. Can you spot the sunken tub? So retro!
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.
