At home with Pangaia

With jackets made from wildflowers, self-cleaning t-shirts made from seaweed and logos made from air pollution, Pangaia’s methods are certainly not conventional. They offer wardrobe essentials that are created with are bio-based, recycled fibres and innovative materials. Because of their outside perspective on the fashion industry, they produce refreshingly thoughtful collections.

A glance at Roop

This adorable accessory brand was created in 2019 by Natasha Fernandes Anjo, who makes everything herself by hand. She was inspired by furoshiki - a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used to carry things. The bags can be worn for any occasion, whether you’re going on a picnic, going out with friends or even to a [...]

A glance at Rixo

English brand Rixo was created by Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey in 2015. The brand focuses on playful, bold prints with a retro, bohemian feel, inspired by the designers’ love of vintage clothing. A see-now-buy-now attitude is less and less appealing and a brand that is shifting this focus is Rixo.

A glance at Vestiaire Collective

In an age of never-ending newness, I find that having something unique or vintage is much more sophisticated and interesting than fawning over the latest trend. In a sea of the same ‘It’ items that are on everyone else’s shopping list, it’s refreshing to try something different.

A glance at Sleeper

In this post I’m looking at the brand Sleeper, a pyjama brand that’s much more than just pyjamas. The designs are sophisticated with a fun, lighthearted vibe, which makes them easy not only wear at home but for many other occasions. It’s a delightfully playful brand whose easy yet elevated pyjamas also have an ethically [...]

A glance at GANNI

I am going to start writing a number of blog posts where I look into different brands offering responsibly made clothes and accessories. I’m starting off with GANNI, a Danish brand known for its bold prints, effortless Scandinavian style and understated silhouettes. You might have even seen the iconic Ganni Girls on Instagram. For GANNI, [...]

Vintage Velvet

Those Autumn afternoons when the blazing heat of the day disappears and there is a slight chill in the air as the sun is setting. At the beginning of Autumn it can be difficult to choose what to wear; even though summer is over the weather is just as warm. A little dress and a bolero are ideal for making the transition to the new season.

Icicle Store

Icicle is a slow fashion brand from Shanghai, it opened last September on the Iconic George V it’s a must see visit if you’re in Paris. The store is more than just a brand it’s a lifestyle where every detail is carefully crafted and curated with either books or home decorations.

Vintage Stores in Paris

I find that the clothes you find in vintage stores always have so much more character than the typical high street stores. Nothing is worse than buying a piece of clothing and as soon as you leave the store you’ve spotted at least 5 people wearing exactly the same item.

Winter Walks

Despite the chilly weather, it’s always nice to go on a refreshing walk in winter. It’s great to enjoy the crisp blue sky (when it’s actually sunny!).  Grab a take-away coffee to keep you warm whilst you wander through the Tuileries. Find one of the iconic green chairs with your coffee - it’s ideal to [...]
