THE SECRET LIFE OF PLANTS

With Autumn/Winter ’14 arriving at the end of August/beginning of September, we thought it approprite to wet your appetite for what’s to come through our moodboard.

The home of Maurizio Zucchi, a home wares maker, is one of our main colour inspirations for the season ahead. We wanted to design a collection for a girl/woman that can who would live in this space. Imagining her to be part of a movie and her character to be a part of its interior. To read the books on the table and drink coffee on the sofa in the morning.

In our lookbook imagery we feature our friend and inspiration > Berta Bernad alongside Pedro, the cactus.

>> DARKSIDE – Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington somehow come together with different perspectives to make some kind of perfect progressive-techno, Cuban rock and roll masterpiece (that works)! Perfect listening for a mellow Summer evening with a glass of chilled wine.
>> PALAIS DE TOKYO – I love going to galleries and the raw, industrial grandeur of Palais de Tokyo, with its huge yet playful light installations and reverberating bass music, it’s the best gallery space I’ve ever visited.
>> Haw-lin.com – online mood board full of GREAT design and imagery.
>> FUMO – hands down the most heavenly combination of Italian cuisine and tapas, where the food is imported from the markets of Milan to my humble hometown of Birmingham.
>> FOAM MAGAZINE – my boyfriend just moved to Amsterdam to work for photography magazine ‘Foam’ – It’s a great looking publication providing a balance of authoritative imagery and interviews with amazingly progressive graphic design.
