I discovered this brand PVBLIC at (capsule) show a couple weeks ago, and I’m in love with it! I adore anything with tribal print.  This particular collection was inspired by the indigenous people of Alaska from the Siberian Coastal Inuit to the to the Central Alaska Yup’ik. Some of the tops come with a leather and suede medicine pouch necklace that can be looped into the back of the neckline. Normally I don’t like accessories attached to my clothing, but with this line it just works! How amazing is that off-white tee with the totem bird design on the shoulders?? I love it.

They have menswear too! (including some KILLER sweatpants)

See the rest of the collection and the men’s clothing here.

Built By Wendy – Spring Collection

Wendy Mullin’s Spring line is making me so ready for warm weather. She always creates the perfect transition pieces like that jumpsuit, blazers, light-as-a-feather trousers, and short-sleeved cotton dresses. Love that green striped dress paired with the pinky-beige round shades. We’re almost there!

loving all cuts on these pieces from New Zealand line BLAK. Their site describes the LUXE collection as:

“a girl on a military manoeuvre with a positive mission. Linen and lace in sun-faded hues of ivory and beige contrast with sharp bright moments of pink and blue. Pieces are slim fitting with structured cut outs, piping and heavy duty zips. The waist is back – in gathered skirts, jumpsuits and shorty shorts”.

while the line of basics is more more soft and flowy:

“Structured shirt dress, cropped jackets and cardigans sit alongside pieces with easy gathers, soft frills and swing tee dresses – the perfect wardrobe fro lazy summer days relaxing in the shade”.

Either way, its all gorgeous. via.

Lauren Tennenbaum is Serious about Shoes. (In)Decorous Taste

Lauren Tennenbaum is a Fashion and Interior Designer and all-around Artist.

She says:

“Curiosity got the best of me, and what started out as my tearing apart those lucite monster wedges that you know I loved to death in all their tack-tasticness, lead to 3234023945234 hours of research and birthed this obsessive experiment in making a luxe-ified stripper heel without having (yet) acquired a last, or at the time, knowledge of shoe construction.”

You can read about her making them and see pictures of the process here.
