Hello there. Pardon my silence. I've been very distracted with studying, teaching, moving and I've started working on a little project which will be time consuming (watch this space). Thanks for all the views though. I feel the love. While we're preparing for the cold down south, the rest of you up north are getting ready for the summer sun. So, it's fitting to feast your eyes on Kick Pleat's Summer look book (to view more and to shop go here). It's glorious
All my favourite colours in one collection. Red, camel and black. Max Mara Fall 2017 is fire!
.Filmmaker, Vugar Efendi's project Film meets Art explores the similarities and relationship between film and art. It's extremely fascinating to say the least. .

The title of this post is basically two posts in one so you're in for a real treat. I love it when local and authentic brands follow me. Recently, Float Apparel did just that. and I was impressed with their ethos. Their label is high quality and designed for men. Their website is also an expression of the surf and skate culture in Cape Town, South Africa. It's visual candy. Just the way I like it.
While browsing, Ant Fox's photography also caught my attention. I'm sharing a few of my favourites but head over to their website to check out some more talent.
This brightened up my day. Jonathan Anderson collaborated with Steven Meisel on Loewe's latest campaign. They were inspired by revolutionary florist, Constance Spry.
