Bed Head

It’s a double summer for me this year. Having spent August lounging around Montauk & Southampton I now get to do it again in the Southern Hemisphere. Here Miss Bridget Malcolm defines the look that will get me through my endless summer, really what more do you need than to roll around in bed with sunkissed hair in little cotton numbers.

Photo Booth

Actors make good models, you give them a character and they play it out for you in stills. So when I asked Actress Emma Booth for a seductive, free spirited girl she delivered. Here are some out takes from my recent shoot with Miss Booth for Yeojin Bae campaign in my favourite dress from the SS15 collection.

Tools of the Trade

Meet Justin Bobyn, who grew up in Montreal and now resides in Sydney where he completed a Medical Degree at UNSW. Now an Orthopaedics surgeon, he spends his spare time as a jewellery maker! Yes the perfect mix of creative genius overload. His first design a customised bracelet was a collaboration with designer, Patrick Johnson. It started from the idea to have a wrist bone shape and then he kicked around the idea of personlised screws as initials which he makes by hand. So what’s next you say, well he’s just designed a bone replacement implant for children. Go JDB !
