So my friend Zak who is behind the awesome men’s label Sergeant Pepper launch their new Working Class heroes video Campaign Spring/ Summer 2014 today. Check it out, not only is it an interesting campaign that celebrates local artisans and their similar outlook on life to that of the Sergeant Pepper brand, but it’s also showcases some great clothes from the label itself and a very cool guy from the Congo named Ollie.
Can’t wait to see more instalments….
“‘Working Class Heroes’ is a Sergeant Pepper Campaign celebrating specific local artisans that we believe share a very similar brand ethos and outlook on life. They are heroes pouring everything they have into this one single passion and pursuit, and are pioneers in their respective industries. We wanted to document a day in the life of these artisans and reveal a bit of the process behind the amazing product that their community engages with, hence the phrase: ‘Work hard, stay inspired.’”

Jarapa Jarapa clothing07. July 2014
These very crazy, but cool pieces are made by Barcelona based label Jarapa Jarapa. From what I can gather via their Facebook page and a very helpful Spanish to English online translator, I’ve learnt that each piece that this label makes is unique and never repeated, once made the pattern for that specific item is destroyed, so that the buyer is the only one that owns it. How cool is that?
I really like all the mad patterns they use to spruce up a shirt or a denim jacket, I mean who would say no to a bacon shirt? What about a dinosaur or a banana one, not me, that’s for sure.
YAY my friend Margot who runs Margot Molyneux clothing is hosting a pop-up shop at Wolves on the 4th of July with Oh Dear Megan. Both these lables have such nice stuff up for offer, I have included some product shots below. There will be treats and champagne so come say hi and pick up something to fend off the winter blues.
So excited for this! Whoohoo.
Orla Kiely – Resort 201506. June 2014
Orla Kiely is one of my most favourite designers, she makes pretty, girly clothing that will probably make you feel like you’re on the set of Gossip Girl if you had to wear them. I have blogged about her stuff many a time and this morning I saw that Cath had pinned a picture of her latest Resort 2015 collection, so I went to go have a look at it.
Once again, it’s pretty and fun and has her name written all over it. So I picked some of my favourites and have included them below.
THE WHITEPEPPER03. June 2014
I love the clothes this East London based company called THE WHITEPEPPER make. They’re pretty and fresh and girlie, but in such a sweet way. Their clothes make me smile slash want to dive head first into a jumping castle pit full of cotton candy. Yes.

Black & white things02. June 2014
Hello everybody, hope you all had a wonderful weekend… and are having a lovely Monday morning.
This weekend I went on a bit of a shop, I was looking for new cushions for our couch and a black and white rug for Shangie’s room. Lucky for me, those are the exact things that I found, I literally walked into a few stores and came out with the stuff I needed. I also scored a few other very cool things this weekend, that fit nicely into my monochrome colour scheme, so I thought I would do a black and white post showcasing them all.
I found this very awesome rug at Mr Price Home, you can’t see it in the picture, but it’s a good size and they had a few others that were really nice too, so if you’re looking for rugs, go check them out.
I also found very cool cushions at Country Road, thought I would get mismatched ones, instead of 2 of the same. They are looking very smart on our grey couch.
Then a very nice young lady by the name of Cecile who owns a local home ware label called Ménagerie sent me a mail asking me if I would like one of her cat cushions for Shangie’s room as a gift. She had me at ‘cat’, I went and had a look at her fun, sweet designs and decided on the fat one below, named Mr Pusskins. How rad is he? He is going to be so happy in the babies room.
My friend Amy also hosted a Jane Sews pop-up shop at Wolves on Friday night, which was a huge success. She had so many nice things to choose from, but I decided on the this grid patterned jersey, which I absolutely love. Nice one Amy Amz.
And the last things are these 2 very pretty sweaters that I bought on my ‘Woolworths Winter shop’ that I was invited to a few weeks back. Their new collection of Winter wear is super impressive and they have all sorts of amazing things to choose from. These textured sweaters were my favourite.
