roll call - valentine

Roll call  no.3

Autumn 2012

I don’t think you should feel about a film. you should feel about a woman, not a movie. you can’t kiss a movie.
- Jean-Luc Godard

I always love that first bit of biting cold in the air - time to pull out sweaters, drink chai tea and stay in bed reading your favourite book. Lately I have been revisiting some of my favourite Godard films and also viewing a few for the first time, my final essay for the semester is comparing the gender dynamic between Godard's Pierrot Le Fou and Truffaut's Jules and Jim. It's so interesting studying French film and culture and I now have an even greater appreciation for Nouvelle Vague cinema.

Tulips have been accompanying me in my office while I finish off my painting project inspired by Godard's Une Femme Est Une Femme, and I have been looking to the Cy Twombly photography books I picked up in Paris for some inspiration. Other objects of obsession are the new issue of Rika magazine and a Lanvin notebook I picked up in Paris, it's almost too beautiful to draw in.

  4. I bought tulips this week all because of this post haha.. So beautiful and so full of promise. I love all your new things!


  5. I've really been in a "should I, should I not?" mood about those Carven heels. Are they comfortable? The Christopher Esber top is one my wish list too x

  6. Thanks Hannah and sorthed! Han, aren't tulips just the best?

    Estelle, the Carven heels are so beautiful! And surprisingly they are pretty comfortable, I did have to get them re-soled and heeled very soon after purchasing but this might have been due to Paris cobblestones. I say yes!
    Also the Esber sweater is a must-have. I have worn this guy so much already. x
