Epokhe Eyewear is a new Australian label created by a group of surfers and photographers. Their campaign was shot in Utah and their inspiration was mid century modernist design, go here to watch the video. Happy weekend!
It may be Summer down here in Cape Town but right now if I lived somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere, I'd get me a variety of polo necks.
Hi, my name is Romy and I'm a pinaholic. It's shameful and embarrasing, it's the first thing I do in the morning and last thing I do before I go to bed BUT there's a feast of inspiration. Go check it out here.
This portrait series of the extra's from the Steven Spielberg 'Lincoln' movie was shot by Adam Ewing and conceptualized by Anya Mills (senior art producer at The Martin Agency). I like the contrast of them wearing everyday, modern clothes (drooling at the old fashioned beards) yet posing in civil war style portraits, they got the idea from Matthew Brady, a 19th century photographer. It's remarkably executed and definitely worth a share.
Thanks to Adweek for this
Isa Arfen is a new fashion label, founded in 2011 by Serafina Sama. What I like about this collection is the emerald green, shade of pink, summer coats, tight shorts and most of all, the long white shirt being styled in a variety of ways. I'm completely sold
The weather really sucked this weekend ( I realised I write about the weather a lot, that's just awkward but that's neither here nor there), so I stayed in today,worked on my reports and got some spare time to blog. Yippeee! Sooo, I wanted to share South African artist, Philip Barlow's paintings, they resemble a blurry photograph which is just incredible.

Mish Nonoo's Spring 2013 collection gave me goosebumps, I think it's super chic for Summer. The look for this collection was; "Frida Kahlo goes to Havana for the weekend", it's wildly evident and right now it excites me like no other. The floral headpieces would look so delicious this season, I'm definitely going to try it! If you're keen to try this look, go here and to view the collection, hop on over to style.com.
