Several months ago, we visited the studio of our friend Mary Button Durell. Mary, a San Francisco based artist, creates translucent and abstract sculptures using only a single material which is handmade by layering sheets of tracing paper and wheat paste. Her delicate and complex sculptures are reminiscent of cocoons, bee hives, and underwater organisms. Honestly mind blowing and inspiring. Thank you for the day of fun, Mary Button!
We’re honestly crushing on these DIY denim accessories courtesy of Madewell. Hold onto all that denim scrap when making your summer cut offs because you can always reuse the material to make yourself a neck bow, a pocket square, a pair of suspenders or a belt! Click here, here and here for the how-tos.
Casa Rita is located on Formentera Island, the smallest and most southerly of the Balearic Islands of Spain. When I first saw Jordi Canosa‘s photos of this harmoniously rustic home, I was immediately reminded on one of my favorite flamenco songs, Aire by Josè Mercè. He sings: “que tenga la puerta abierta la alegria de mi casa,” which means to have the door open to joy and happiness in your home!
I’m completely captivated by this editorial, shot by Mario Testino for Vogue UK in Antwerp. Inspired by the studies of the Belgium Old Masters, Lucinda Chambers has styled this spread beautifully with stunning headpieces, oversized necklaces, ruffled cuffs, and contrasting blacks and whites. Lovely.
