Me & You

October 10, 2016

Latest edition to add to my styling portfolio, this magnificent and emotive black and white story shot by Justin Polkey for Fashion Gone Rouge featuring models Alena Blohm and Bryce Thompson in exclusive Calvin Klein apparel.

Justin and I collabrated on the art direction and opted to keep the story classic Calvin Klein. Nineties minimalism, clean lines and horizons, barely there make up and tousled tresses crafted by hair and make up artist Anja Fichtenmayer.

adidas Originals x HYKE

March 30, 2016

Adidas-+-HYKE-_shot-05_1628

Japanese womenswear label, HYKE, have once again teamed up with adidas Originals and designed a collection that makes my heart pound. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with simple and clean aesthetics and that’s exactly what the new adidas Originals by HYKE SS16 collection is all about.

Myself and Aqeelah Harron Ally (Fashion Breed) teamed up with adidas Originals to shoot a localised version of the new HYKE SS16 lookbook with Justin Polkey.

 The collection focused on a colour palette of navy and white all while keeping in line a clean and collected range with authentic sportswear elements. Fashionable minimalism.

Favourite piece of the collection? The ultra white high top Stan Smiths! As far as shoes are concerned there’s nothing that gets me more excited then a pair of fresh white sneakers. (I currently own 11 pairs!) I’ve officially labeled this sneaker as the must have shoe for 2016. Also the socks insert emoji with heart eyes – #JustSaying.

The adidas Originals by HYKE SS16 is available at AREA3 in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, and adidas.co.za.

Desk Life with Kraftisan

Not only do I work from home but I study from home too so a clean, organised work space is key for me. I simply can not focus when my work station is topsy-turvy.

Kraftisan recently delivered a press drop with some of their latest products and I immediately feel in love with the puzzle cork pin-board. Yes let me say that again, a puzzle cork pin-board.

For an organisational-whore such as myself, a place to pin my calendar and my countless to-do lists is a must! It’s everything I love: Stylish, minimal, practical and local.

Check out their online store for all the various products they offer. Their laptop stand is next on my shopping list.

P.S I was pretty tempted to stick it up on the side of my fridge but of course my office took priority.

P.S.S Loving my new marble desk goodies too. A steal from the new H&M store and the V&A Waterfront. R230 for both the tray and the cup!

Do you ever try on a pair of shoes and immediately you feel like you walking on clouds? And every step you take feels like you almost floating? Well that’s exactly what these babies from adidas made me feel like. Floating… clouds… heaven for my feet.

adidas have just launched their new line of trainers  – the Tubular X series – “a vision of the future created from abstractive, collective memories of adidas archives”.

Moulded soles, neutral colour-ways and a back to the future kinda feeling. A pair of trainers that can match pretty much anything in your wardrobe and let’s not forget that it comes in a knitted version too… I mean what’s not to love.
