Things We Love for Spring | 27.02.16

“You deserve a love who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a love who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.

You deserve a love who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.

You deserve a love who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.

You deserve a love who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry” —Frida Kahlo

The Saint-Tropez Zip & the new issue of Vogue Paris, pretty, pretty underthings and golden Guccis, here are a few things we love this week for Springtime . . .

“At the shops or the flower markets or on your next travel adventure, the Tuscany Tote will quickly become an all-time favourite. Named for the place where the beautiful all natural vegetable tanned leather comes from, this tote works as well with skinny jeans or summer dresses, whether at the office or weekends away . . .”

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

THIS WEEKEND WE watched the Wimbledon finals, and Sunday’s match, between Federer and Djokovic, was especially exhilarating and ultimately heartbreaking (Federer forever). The weather has finally turned summery and I’m all billowy white dresses and espadrilles these days. The roses in all the English gardens have begun to fade, but everything is lush and green as it always is at this time of year, the height of summertime, when the days are hazy and you can almost hear the clouds float by. We still have so much to tell about these past few months of change and renewal, but for now, it’s nice to step back a little from everything, safe in the cosiness of the cottage and breathe. Also began a new book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, which has provided much to think about…

In Isaac Asimov’s novel Foundation (1951), the mathematician Hari Seldon forecasts the collapse of the Galactic Empire using psychohistory: a calculus of the patterns that occur in the reaction of the mass of humanity to social and economic events. Initially put on trial for treason, on the grounds that his prediction encourages said collapse, Seldon is permitted to set up a research group on a secluded planet.

Décor Inspiration: Curves Ahead

LATELY WE HAVE BEEN drawn to soft lines and organic shapes, the kind often found in the cosy, sun-drenched homes in Greece or the Italian countryside. There is something very soothing and relaxing about their forms, their swooping ceilings and archways, and sunken living rooms. Here are a few favourite spaces, from the Perivolas Hotel in Santorini, Greece to Masseria Critabianca in Cutrofiano, Italy, and even a cabin in Norway…

Playlist 07.14.19 : Five Songs for the Weekend

There was a time when a mixtape was clearly defined in opposition to an actual album. It was a free, low-key, interstitial release that enabled the artist in question – usually from the fields of hip-hop and R&B – to work without worrying unduly about the troublesome business of sample clearance. But that definition went out of the window some time ago.

In May Diane Keaton posted a particularly quirky video on her Instagram account that pretty much served as the impetus for this shoot. In it she is descending a stairwell in her 8,000-square-foot Los Angeles home, wearing a checked blazer cinched by a thick black belt, black pants, loosely tied combat boots, and not one but maybe 10 hats stacked on top of each other. “Which hat do you think I should wear?” she asks no one in particular.

Thoughts on Creativity

The app that once began with an array of artfully arranged lattes and avocado toasts shifted, for a while, its attention to promoting millennial influencers with a mastery of DSLR cameras and photo presets. This app, however, has still (amongst its one billion monthly users) creative minds that use it to express their creativity and poetry with those seeking beautiful visuals.
