Joseph Sudek (1896-1976) was a Czech photographer active in Prague during the first half of the 20th century. He captured his surroundings in an intimate way, offering the viewer to see exactly what he saw. These landscape photographs were taken during the cold season, and evoke a feeling of winter in Sweden. The naked trees, darkness and frosty atmosphere, remind me instantly of the crisp cold of Stockholm in January. The vintage film enhances the effect of stillness, and I feel a calm nostalgia when I look at them.
An exhibition of his work was in at Jeu de Paume in Paris recently.
Love these red brick buildings close to Sloane Square.

Barbara Casasola's spring/summer 2017 is an excellent example of how I want to dress during the warmer season. Simple clothes, few accessories - no mess. Something I especially look forward to adapting is the all white shorts and shirt ensemble, and for a dressier option, styled with a white blazer. If the cut and material is up to measure, nothing else is needed. Off she shoulder continues strongly through fall/winter and from what we have seen at fashion week, into spring as well. I love the subtle sensuality of it. Casasola's fit and flare midi dresses are on my wishlist. I like Casasola's collections, the no fuss approach inspire dressing for everyday life.
Finding new brands to love is not always easy for me. Finding those under the radar brands that offer interesting designs, an original idea and good quality clothes. Well, originality isn't a must, don't know if there is such a thing anymore, but at leasts sticks out of the crowd. So many brands are started on a bandwagon, and others are too try hard, while some just fail to grip. With that said, I'm sure you understand that I very much enjoy it once I find a brand that I'm unfamiliar with. Mother of Pearl, designed by Amy Powney, is a London based brand that follow the words "feminine, sporty and modern". It's not new, it was founded in 2002, but it feels fresh and has been reinvented by Powney with the last couple of collections. Think interesting materials, comfortable silhouettes and statement pieces. I particularly like the soft blue denim ensemble - extra long sleeves are huge right now and a good cover up always comes in handy. This is contemporary fashion done right, with just a touch of 80s.
And a shout out to the side parting blow dries, the model's hair in the top right picture is how I want mine all spring/summer long!
The clothes get better...
The company gets cozier...
Paris weekend gets closer...
The baths get warmer...
I'm back in London for two weeks to do my very first internship with a magazine! So excited to start tomorrow and I feel like this is kind of a big step working towards what I want to do. I try not think about it too much or anticipate anything, but I literally have no idea what I'll be doing there. An update will come as soon as possible!
On Saturday we went out to shoot the editorial for the magazine we are creating. Our location was the concrete below Shoreditch High Street overground station and around that area. I threw some outfits together and we had a good camera - and model! Lots of fun :).
These pictures just have a template B&W filter, the final edit with captions is in the making.
