More often than normal, we’ve been seeing portraits of animals – from cats to dogs to zoo animals – dressed so adorably in human clothing. Madrid based photographer Miguel Vallinas has taken a more realistic, and ironically serious, approach to this movement.

How killer are these playing card clutches, made by Urania Giourmetaki for her label Urania Gazelli? Working out of her family’s plexiglass factory in Greece, it takes up to 12 hours for Urania to hand craft each clutch and even longer for custom pieces.

Enter Jack Wills, a moderately priced British clothing brand aimed at university students and which made it’s US debut just a few years ago in a handful of East Coast collegiate towns. Those years may be far behind us but that sure won’t stop us from indulging in a few crewneck sweaters and a couple of tailored tweed blazers.
