Acne Studios + Hilma Af Klint

Acne Studios + Hilma Af Klint

Nothing beats an Acne collab for coolness, creativity or originality, and their latest, which draws deeply on inspiration from the artwork of fellow Swedish artist and mystic (!) Hilma af Klint, whose paintings were amongst the very first to tackle abstraction and automatic drawing (mindblowing, outrageous concepts for the time),…

Fashion month is over… until next time… As always it’s been a magical thing to follow, not just for the clothes, the shows and the front rows, but also behind the scenes, out front on the street – and of course the hair and makeup! We had a series of emails…

The Gentlewoman No.9

The Gentlewoman No.9

The Gentlewoman is, in my humble opinion, pretty much a perfect magazine. Quiet, refined, understated, strong, intelligent, both visually and in subject matter. Immensely readable, covetable and collectable. Subtly humorous, carefully considered, always surprising, never boring. I once met editor in chief Penny Martin at a fashion film event in…

The Minimal Shift

The Minimal Shift

On my return home from a recent visit to Bolivia, I was immediately compelled to walk through my house with a black sack and remove everything unnecessary. The clutter and the collections seemed excessive and useless. I felt empty on the things that filled up my home. An intolerable surge…

Sesame Seed, Date & Cinnamon Milk

Sesame Seed, Date & Cinnamon Milk

Homemade sesame seed milk is really, really easy to make. The flavour is gloriously rich. It makes the best chia pudding and is amazing in smoothies. 1 cup of sesame seeds – soaked overnight and rinsed well 4 cups of water 5-6 medjool dates 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1/4 tsp cinnamon…

Literary Style: The Dud Avocado

Literary Style: The Dud Avocado

‘The day my laundry came back, I took out all my clothes and spread them around the room for Judy and me to look at. I was determined that for once, just once in my life, when I went to those readings, I would be wearing the ‘right’ thing. The…

Origami Book Sculptures

Origami Book Sculptures

Calling this ‘origami’ is a little deceiving, as while these folded books look intricate, they are far easier to make than Japanese cranes. All you need is a couple of old secondhand books, and some time for folding. Perfect for an evening when you feel the need to achieve without…

Anna-Lise & Her Year Of Hair

Our ridiculously beautiful, lovely, sweet, smiley, styley friend Anna-Lise from Ruby has recently embarked on a rather huge but very exciting project with Tresemmé! The video below explains it best, but we can’t wait to see what the truly delightful Miss Sharma comes up with each day… x

Oscar Dresses

Oscar Dresses

There’s a certain kind of glamour and mood that only an Oscars night can provide, and perhaps the most fabulous way to take it all in is through the gowns and outfits selected by the biggest stars of each year. Digital agency MediaRun have done just that, creating this sweet…

K Road Sweetness

K Road Sweetness

As you may have seen on Instagram last night, Undone Girl Jordan’s delicious secret is out – she’s opening a very cool little store on the legendary K Road! Jordan’s promised to tell us more about it very soon, but in the meantime, here’s some of her next level homemade…

Take Me Home

Take Me Home

Really it was that thick, solid, humble-feeling ceramic crockery, lozenge-shaped plates, deep bowls, shallow or mini, big coffee cups or petite – in the absolute perfect wash of pale pink, yes, pale pink – that drew us in. And yes we bought a set or maybe two, and then went…

If I Could Change Your Mind

If I Could Change Your Mind

This is the brand new video by Haim. We love Haim (rhymes with ‘I am’ in case you were wondering, two syllables) and we really love how this video takes us back to our carefree school days, when we unashamedly danced all the time, by ourselves, in pairs or small…

La Vie En Rose

La Vie En Rose

We were lucky enough to attend Saturday night’s ultra glam L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards, have a peek backstage (see our Insta) and snatch a few quick minutes with Willis York‘s Rebecca Brent, the very cool winner of the big prize, the Supreme Award. As well as a very good industry…
