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.

Berlin Wall

September 17, 2015

I’ve always wanted to visit The Berlin Wall ever since I first watched Pink Floyd’s The Wall film as a little girl. Rodger Waters, along with David Lynch, has to be my favourite creative of all time.

The East Side Gallery, where we shot this look post, is a 1,3km international memorial for freedom that was established in 1990. The East Side Gallery is still the only authentic monument of reunification in the last 20 years.

Apart from Pink Floyd’s The Wall design (who I can’t seem to find out who actually painted it) I love Christine Kühn’s Touch the Wall with all the blue handprints.

Have any of you visited the Berlin Wall and if so which design was your favourite?

Friday Favs

August 28, 2015


This week’s instalment of Friday favs is dedicated to my new Superstar sneakers. I’ve been lusting over these bad boys for months now and last week I finally decided to buy myself a pair.

I’ve been dying to wear them but the streets of Berlin are so filthy so I am waiting till I’m back in South Africa before wearing them. Yes I am that obsessed with keeping my white sneakers as white as possible.

For some more sneaker inspo check out my top ten minimal sneaker list here.

Happy weekend everyone,
