for the weekend

Apologies for my absence these last two weeks. After celebrating Ro's birthday we've been mostly in packing mode (we're moving again) and I'm also getting ready to start a new job (more on this soon!). Winter weather has also well and truly set in and its been all about comfort dressing and trying to stay out of the rain.

Highlights of this week have included a lovely breakfast at Yellow House Pop Up, and an amazing progressive dining experience with Lime and Tonic, my new Glassons knit, homewares shopping at Country Road and West Elm and the season finale of Mad Men.

badlands, baby

When I first heard about the inspirations behind Zimmermann Resort 14, I couldn't wait to see it.  Citing films Badlands and Picnic at Hanging Rock and the story of a good girl turned bad as the collections main references, it seemed only natural that it would be love at first sight.

Featuring a few of my favourites - beautiful lace, sweeping hemlines, just the right amount of ruffles and stunning open backs with bow detailing, it looks like Zimmermann will be the star of my Holiday wishlist this Summer!

badlands x sportsgirl

I'm so excited to share with you my campaign for Sportsgirl Australia, The Slashies. It was an honour to be asked alongside fellow creatives Rachel Rutt and Christina Dietze to take part in the campaign which is all about slashie personas. In my case it's graphic artist/blogger (there were more but two is enough!), as part of the launch I'll be instagraming for Sportgirl for the rest of the week as well as doing a series of posts for the blog (first up, my interview) and giving away a one off print as part of their Pinterest competition.

Thank you for having me Sportsgirl!

don't ever leave

- Joan Didion, The Paris Review, 1978

Light streaming in through the windows, starting the day with a beautiful breakfast, fresh flowers, the smell of old paperback books, the excitement of turning the pages of a new magazine and of discovering a new label. 

These were a few of the highlights from last week - the new Rika magazine arrived, I welcomed a surprisingly warm first week of winter and the start of anemone season, more Joan Didion (always) and a beautiful package from New York-based designer Gillian Tennant.

Gillian's clothes are exactly what I have been looking for, well made and stunningly simple pieces designed using only natural fibers that work perfectly into my wardrobe. I was so happy that the sun stayed out all long weekend and I was able to give them a first outing. Over the next few months there will be lots of layering and dreaming of spring!

Thankyou Gillian! x

i love mr mittens

It's always a pleasure to work on a project with Hannah and Rachel. Our latest collaboration involves photographing, designing, illustrating and wording the I Love Mr Mittens campaign, one of my favourite jobs to date! I feel so lucky to get to work with such an amazing team and a beautiful label like Mittens, my Popeye beanie (with a pom pom!) has been keeping me warm in the cold Winter mornings for the past week. Add a warm cup of tea and a cosy blanket and you have the recipe for a perfect weekend.

the art of cinema - paris, texas

The art of cinema no.8

Our second guest post by director, writer and photographer Ben Briand.
Last year Ben reviewed Wild at Heart for us and now, in between working on his new short film, he reviews one of my personal favourites.

Paris Texas by Ben Briand

Ok I am going to be totally honest here; Paris, Texas is one of my favourite films. And I’ve never watched it in its entirety.
Strange I know.
I have also never finished reading one of my favourite books of all time, Milan Kundera’s Slowness. I think it is so I can be in a constant, perpetual state of reading it.
I have a strange relationship with work that I find absolutely astonishing. Often I stay away from it. As though it is too rich to experience in one sitting. I need to chip off a small block and savour the experience. If I watch Paris, Texas from beginning to end then it will do exactly that, it will end. And I don’t want it to end. So I stop it part way through so that I am in a never-ending position of being in the middle of Wim Wender’s beautiful world.
Paris, Texas has certainly been praised for its aesthetic qualities. Cinematographer Robby Müller shot Nastassja Kinski’s red sweater in a way that has been embraced by the fashion world more times than one can remember. But the true reason that this film continues to resonate after twenty five years across all artistic fields is that the story’s beauty is timeless. It is not just classic but romantic beauty and that’s a killer combination. The aesthetics are informed from a place of the character’s true beauty, not just for the sake of it.
Paris, Texas is Wender’s German take on the eroding modernity of Middle America. It won the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and is filled with stark landscapes, lonesome motels, neon drenched diners and lost love. I highly recommend your viewing of it, even if you don’t make it to the end.
