Egg Tempera

A quirky little film about the life and art of Joël Penkman. You can see more of her work—still lifes of nostalgic, kitsch and much-loved objects like teacups, sweets and bags of Monster Munch—here.

Draw in Light

Draw in Light 3

I know, I know. It has been about a year since I updated this. Shame on me. Shame. But I saw the SS15 and Resort 15 lookbooks from Draw in Light and knew it would appeal.

Draw in Light are a British womenswear label specialising in cool, screen-printed silk clothes in pared-back shapes. Perfect for the summer that I plan on having, complete with white beaches, sandy toes and lashings of Aperol spritz….

Lanvin SS15

Lanvin_005_2000_592x888So Lanvin got it really, really right for spring/summer 2015. Pure dishevelled Parisian insouciance, expressed through the mediums of dirty-looking hair and high-maintenance bleached whites. The only thing I’m not too sure about the heel shape below, they remind me of the mid-heel Kickers I used to wear at school (mine were navy, which totally violated school rules. I was such a rebel.) But you never know, they might be a grower…

Marc Alary

Screen shot 2014-04-05 at 13.29.13Meet my latest jewellery crush: Marc Alary. French-born and NY-based, Marc Alary works simple themes – flora and fauna – in interesting ways. Just take the articulated monkey ring above – the shapes are sinuous and sophisticated, but the idea is more children’s toy than fine jewellery. You can reposition the monkey to echo your mood – playful, watchful, ready-to-pounce. Below are a few more of his pieces, including some pendant playmates for that ring and my personal favourites, the coiled-leopard rings.
