the shops may be beginning to fill with new ss17 pieces, but outside it is so dark and dismal and i’m still in hibernation mode..
here are a few of the lovely pieces i’m lusting over right now:
1 / i discovered danish brand care by me at top drawer last month and immediately swooned over their ‘slow wear’ philosophy and strong sense of social responsibility. established in 2012 by camilla gullits, care by me work in cashmere and wool, producing their pieces in small workshops in kathmandu, nepal, where women are educated in the craft. all of their knitwear pieces are made using old-fashioned hand-knitting machines, or knitted on needles by hand, all without the use of electricity.
2 / the white company are one of my staple brands for luxurious nightwear and their new flannel stripe pyjama bottoms have swiftly gone to the top of my lust list this month. i just love the soft touch of cotton brushed flannel and think the classic combo of pale blue stripes on pure white elevates these from bedtime wear to all-day loungewear. who’s with me?
3 / the feeling of being wrapped in soft, fresh linen is one of life’s most simple pleasures, and i love the three quarter length sleeves on this beautiful pure belgian linen bathrobe from the linen works, which caught my eye on instagram this week.
4 / my good friend tiff of curate & display introduced me to mahabis with this post a few years ago, and i’ve been itching to get my hands on a pair ever since. describing themselves as ‘the essence of chill,’ not only do they embody a clean, minimal aesthetic usually so hard to come by in (often frumpy) slipper designs, but they also come with detachable soles that can be easily slotted on to protect your slippers if you need to quickly put the bins out, or pop to the corner shop. neat, huh?
5 / i discovered keepsake silk camis at the dayrooms in notting hill earlier this week, just one of the many wonderful australian fashion brands that fill their rails with wonder and delight. the westbourne grove boutique is positively bursting with quirky charm and aussie humour (the cheeky damselfly candles certainly had me chuckling!), but it was the tactile allure of silky satin boudoir wear that really called to my hibernation tendencies this month.
6 / ethical lingerie brand luva huva caught my attention for their pretty, feminine designs that provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to an often wasteful fashion industry. they make almost all their pieces to order, working from scratch with caring attention to detail, using natural and ecologically considerate fabrics such as bamboo, hemp, organic cotton and soy. i especially love the floral patterning and scalloped edges of the dalida bralette, super feminine and alluring but comfortable to wear as well – a winner in my books!
