"A well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to a man." I don't know who said that but I remembered it because ladies, how true? Oh man, while looking at Bohemian's S/S 2014 collection I got quite excited, I believe all men should dress like this. Classic and sharp tailoring with a mix of contemporary fashion. Seriously so hot

Hans Mauli was a graphic designer and worked with Herb Lubalin, together they designed the typeface for the World Trade Centre signage. Hans worked in Paris as an advertising photographer from 1971 to 1991. Thereafter, he moved to the US and worked as a fine art photographer. He never had access to a dark room so most of his early work was not printed only until much later. Here are some of my favourites, I hope you like it as much as I do. Definitely worth a share!
There is so much beauty in simplicity and that's why I like Elizabeth Suzann's clothes. All of their designs are classic, basic and of high quality. They use natural plant and protein based fabrics such as cotton, linen, rayon and silk. I would honestly wear every piece in their latest S/S collection, it's easy to wear and long lasting.
"Clean, classic silhouettes adapt to your style, rather than define it. They can dressed up or down, or stand on their own. It's our goal to produce timeless clothing of excellent quality that you can wear and keep in your closet for years."
I am so proud to be part of the contributing team for Georgette Magazine. For the second issue,I had the priviledge of styling with Nicole (editor in chief) again. She's so talented, so young and yet she's already achieved so much. Have you read it? If you haven't, you most definitely should.

I just love receiving e-mails from Moriah Hemed, owner and designer of Mona. I know there's always something new and exciting for my eyes to feast on. Her new S/S collection, Tutti Frutti is what I would describe as delicious, figuratively speaking of course but so fitting for this collection. Moriah collaborated with a very talented illustrator,Yifat Petraro for it's delightful fruit prints which was incorporated in the details. I generally prefer the cold but this entire collection surprisingly made me long for Summer all over again.
"This collection was inspired by summer desserts, especially fruit salad and ice cream. Summer to me is about going to the beach with a box full of fruit pieces that are still chilly from the fridge. Buying an ice cream from the "ice cream man" and racing to eat it all before the sun makes it drip down my arm like a little girl."- Moriah Hemed

I've been immersing myself in the first issue of Porter Magazine, Net-A-Porter's first debut in print. I love that it's subjects ( Caroline de Maigret and Uma Thurman for example) are presented in a warmer, somewhat relatable and intimate way. I honestly felt quite inspired and it's currently lying quite comfortably on my coffee table.
Juliette Hogan's A/W 2014 collection has some pretty awesome pieces. The Dillon coat (I like the single button vibe), the sweater coat, the Nicholas pants, the Ruby Wu dress (made from vintage lace) aaand the silk floral bomber ("it is quilted silk and fully lined with antique brass domes..."). So, yes I basically like most of the collection but can you blame me? It's that good.
