oh my days, this look is ideal! i've been wading through mountains of catwalk for work and i never get that excited about new york but this look from proenza schouler's aw12 collection is just perfect. who wouldn't want a quilted satin varsity jacket with two embroidered pheasants on it? who?! head over heels for the woven pailette skirt and the bambi bag too.. gonna be shooting at london fashion week over the next few days so will keep you posted on that. happy friday!

daisy chain.

love these images by maya from 'turned out'.. they remind me of a proper 90s primary school sports day where you'd spend most of your time trying to make the longest daisy chain (in between 3-legged races and games such as 'who can balance the beanbag on their head the longest?' - my favourite). images via turned out. if you haven't already been on it then check it out, full of lovely portraits and really fresh fashion.. bring on the summer - that jacket is callin' my name.


natural structure.

we bought a new book last week for one of our stories at work, entitled 'then again' by shirana shahbazi (available from the photographers gallery bookshop, buy online here). it features a lot of photography that looks like art (somewhat of a trend at the moment). most of the photos are beautiful in their own right but what is interesting are the pairings in the book - where very colourful, structured, geometric images are placed next to those of nature. there's one in particular that features a very subtle photo of cracked ice next to a kaleidoscopic burst of shapes, that seem to echo the cracks in the ice. i'm rambling a little but just thought it was a really interesting idea..
these are not from the book but love the simple colour palette in these images, which are via here and here.
