Vilshenko – Autumn/Winter 2014-1505. February 2014
Yikes, how absolutely beautiful and romantic is this Autumn/Winter 2014-15 collection by Vilshenko? The site I spotted it on says that there are more pieces to come, I cannot wait to see what else forms part of this collection. Wow.
Valentino | Pre-Fall 2014 Collection16. January 2014
I keep seeing glimpses of Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection on Pinterest and so went in search for the whole lot and wow I wasn’t disappointed, it’s full of the most luxurious looking outfits crafted to perfection from motifs, to structured silhouettes, to just plain beautiful gowns. There are 78 looks altogether and I went through them all to try pick my favourites, which was damn hard because there were so many good ones it started hurting my eyes. Take a look at some of my favourites below and if you’re keen to see them all, which I have no doubt you will be, click here.
- The collection’s streamlined, effortless silhouettes will be familiar to Valentino watchers. Eccentricity was conveyed via decorative motifs—most significantly the butterfly, although owls and eagles turned up, too. Butterflies appeared elaborately inset, intaglio-style, on the front of cashmere pullover tops and on the back of cashmere capes, their wings stretching seam to seam.
Arcadia by Samantha Pleet05. November 2013
Came across this label on Pony Anarchy, it’s designed and made by a Miss Samantha Pleet and this is her new Spring/Summer 2014 collection. ’Arcadia’ was inspired by the journals of Charles Darwin during his journeys to Tiera Del Fuego and features Samantha’s signature hand drawn prints.
Her pieces are so light and fun, just like Summer should be and I love the fact that she hand draws all her own prints, that’s damn cool.
I also think this shoot, against the pale pink background is also really awesome.

Nadinoo17. September 2013
Nadinoo is one of my most favourite clothing designers that I have had the pleasure of laying my internet eyes on. Nadia Izruna, the genius hands behind this label always seems to come up with the prettiest of dresses and pieces using such awesome patterned material that you would expect to find in a long lost warehouse from the 60′s.
I absolutely love her stuff, every outfit makes me feel like I’m looking at a beautiful piece of a memory.
*Also found some cool photos of the collection on Calivintage
Pixie Market05. September 2013
Aaaaaa man I seriously love all these pieces from Pixie Market. I was looking around their site and literally wishing I wore short dresses so that I could max out my credit card like no ones business. Luckily they have a lots of pretty things, not just dresses, they have tigers on sweaters, sigh. Love all the voluminous shoulder details, they’re the best.
Cool spaces: This home is like a slice of cherry pie.22. August 2013
Photographer Sofia Byström took these lovely photos of Gothenburg based designer Lisa Marie Andersson. I think if happiness had to have a colour pallet it would be found in this little flat. It’s so sweet. I had a look at Marie’s label Wooden Hills and have included some of her pieces here, her clothes are as cutesey (is this a word?) as her home.
