In celebration of yesterday’s 27 degree Indian Summer day – Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Japan.
Tilda Swinton + Las Pozas, Mexico + t&t’s favourite photographer Tim Walker = holy aesthetic trinity. In the current W Magazine. Divine Mary Katrantzou dress, at top. HF.
I have animals and whimsy on my mind, having spent the weekend getting a baby’s room ready for a baby. I find myself flicking through Selvedge and bypassing beautiful throws, in favour of handmade creatures and mobiles and booties…yegads! From top: the studio of textile artist Mister Finch, his beautiful moth sculptures, Horse Mobile by Hillery Sproatt, hand painted tambourine by Claire Fletcher, Mister Finch’s foxes and moths, Hillery Sproatt’s Woman and Horse mobile.

I am late to the party with Mother of Pearl: designer Maia Norman’s sporty, arty label that regularly teams up with art world stars to produce some pretty amazing prints. Winter 2012 saw Fred Tomaselli contribute the rights to a range of paintings, resulting in some hypnotic Autumnal designs of bird life, flora and constellations. This Spring/Summer, Francesco Simeti continued the collage feel – images second, third and fifth from top. Looking forward to seeing the next partnership. HF.
Paintings by Fred Tomaselli, from top: Hang Over, 2005; Geode, 2006; Migrant Fruit Thugs, 2006.
When I haven’t been thinking about finishing a PhD and having a baby (most likely to take place in the same month/week), the above have occupied my mind: paintings by Emily Ferretti (top, and fourth from top), Erdem Pre-Fall 2013, the Acne Piers bag, the need for a new Bolivian manta (to upholster our bedhead), a print like this for the nursery and the quilts of Inneke Poort. Apologies for the length of time between drinks/posts. HF.
Yes, we alerted you to the perfectly curated range of goods from The Apartment, Denmark, last month. But I couldn’t not post these images once I’d come across them on Jelanie’s blog. I’ve taken to thinking of such interiors as mantels writ large, as they’re designed with a pared back aesthetic to allow interesting art and textural objects to shine. If I could get rid of a few hundred objects in my home, I might be on my way to a mantel, but for the moment I’m living in more of a shrine… HF.
The Les collection by Lesia Paramonova, designed to evoke the forest (‘les’ is ‘forest’ in Russian). The clothes not only embody the delicacy of woodland life, but Paramonova’s runway show of the collection in St Petersburg earlier this year involved the placement of mosses to add scent to her design vision. I love the applique work. Check out her tumblr – it’s heavenly. HF. Images from here.
