SHADOW PLAY ft. the new H&M Studio SS17 Collection

February 24, 2017

Inspired by the passion and strength of ballet the new limited edition H&M Studio collection, which will launch in stores globally on the 2nd March, is full of trendy key looks and statement pieces for fashion lovers. Traditional tailoring techniques meet with the functionality and high-tech elements of sportswear in a fresh modern clash.

For the first time, H&M will close the gap between the retail calendar and runway calendar and bring customers a collection straight off the runway. The fashion show will be presented at Paris Fashion Week on the 1 March and will also include menswear for the first time.

“This is a collection about love, a positive message of hope and optimism. Knowledge of the past mixed with the energy of today creates a path to a new future,” says Pernilla Wohlfart, H&M’s design and creative director.

Today’s My Life in Pink editorial features some of my favourite teaser looks shot by Justin Polkey which will grace the runway at Paris Fashion Week next week Wednesday.

The womenswear collection will be available here in South Africa at Sandton from the 2nd March.

Maison Mara for Metal Magazine

February 21, 2017

New styling work now out in Metal Magazine exclusively ft. Maison Mara:

Upon returning from London in November I decided to take Justin camping in the Cederberg Mountains where I had spent a fair amount of my childhood. We were both so inspired by the rock textures that we decided to collaborate on a story together.

Fast foward a few weeks and there we were hiking up the Cederberg mountain range with crew in tow. Honestly we could not have asked for a more hard working and dedicated team. Two days and 3 hikes later the weather was finally what we wanted, still air and bright sunlight.

Big thanks to Maison Mara for supplying all the clothing and a shoutout to everyone evolved for your dedication and for not complaining once while carrying equipment and styling up the moutanin three times.

Retro Sport: The Rise of Skiwear

January 18, 2017

Thanks to Demna Gvasalia‘s debut collection for Balenciaga in March 16 skiwear has become everyone’s winter must have.
Oversized puffer jackets that offer performance characteristics but are also fashionable.

The addition of slacks and sporty details such as chunky elastic trims, polo collars, and athletic stripes have created a laid back approach to our wardrobes with a touch of retro inspiration.

Soften the look with a pair of hells or an embellished ballet pump. Winter in Europe is dark and grey so why not inject a bit of colour into your looks too, think bold reds and deep hues of blue.

So embrace a new, informal edge that luxe sportswear brings and be fearless. Oh and Happy New Year everyone!

PICHULIK for Maison Mara

January 9, 2017

Maison Mara and Pichulik teamed up to create a collaborative collection of jewellery for mothers and daughters. A collection of jewellery that draws inspiration from their family heirlooms.

Instead of using beads as Pichulik always has, this time Katherine Mary Pichulik shaped rope and cast them in brass and then gold plated them to create the eight pieces that speak of having a history but are at the same time has a modern feeling.

“In keeping with the idea that jewellery is passed down from generation to generation, the collection’s leitmotiv is the knot, a symbol of security and longevity. A knot becomes tighter over time until it cannot be undone any more.” Says Kelly Withey.

The Pichulik For Maison Mara collection is available at Maison Mara at 5 Jarvis Street, Cape Town and online here.
