Manderley meets Hanging Rock, with Georgia May Jagger, for UK Vogue (October ’13). Shots by Venetia Scott, styled by Bay Garrett. With Valentino, Dries and a white horse, of course. HF.
There is now a stellar range of storage baskets and photo frames in Sydney, care of the Williams Sonoma/Pottery Barn/West Elm migration. From well designed, inexpensive sofas to the perfect jars for jam season, this is going to shakes things up, retail-wise. For smaller items, the prices are only a smidgeon more than the US. And the range is pretty good, considering we’re one fifteenth the size, population wise. Oh, and the staff were both plentiful and super helpful. My only gripe: the store configurations – if only they’d taken over a deco warehouse down Alexandria way! HF.
Inigo can be seen trying to match his neon pram to the grey Westelm sofa, above – good job pikelet!

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.
In the same week that I had a baby and named him Inigo (inspired by Inigo Jones), I came across the rugs of Inigo Elizalde: hand-knotted Nepalese dhurries that are produced under the GoodWeave organisation, a certification initiative that aims to end child labour and offer educational opportunities in South Asia. They are pretty great, but not nearly as beautiful as my baby boy. HF.
Loving the continued monochromatic moodiness of London Fall 2013 – although, as you’ll see tomorrow, there is a strong strain of blood red on the loose too. Erdem echoed the season’s toned down, textured up trend with a sublime digital/dot duo (directly above), whilst Mother of Pearl combined graphic stripes and a bee print to great effect. And a honorable mention to Antonio Berardi, whose series of crisp, dark gowns screamed Top of his Game. Oh, and Tom Ford: you minx! HF.

Moody, mossy London. Mary Katrantzou reduced her palette to inky hues and was inspired by the photographs of early twentieth century photographer Alfred Steiglitz, cleverly shaking off the burden of her multi, kaleidoscopic prints that have since been attempted by every other designer and their lap dog. Also: super cute collections from Sea and Emilia Wickstead. 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.
