Thanks to Miuccia Prada’s Fall 2012 collection for Miu Miu I’ve been inspired to take a step towards androgyny with a slightly masculine silhouette, tassel slippers, plus some Prada-esque optical print. Not my usual cup of tea, nor a look I’ll be attempting on a regular basis; but boy was I comfortable.
Growing up I was fascinated by my mother’s collection of beautiful scarves. My sisters and I would wrap ourselves in them and dance, pretending we were princesses.
Luckily as an adult I can still indulge in this fantasy with my collection of Andéol scarves. Designer Emilie Cacace creates the most beautiful prints using photographs and illustrations which are digitally printed onto silk. She also collaborates with Sydney based jeweller Raphael Mhashilkar to create her range of woven and beaded jewellery.
These are a few of my current favourites, but you really must visit her online store to view the extensive range of prints and jewellery, along with her printed bags.
After a scorching Australia day we’ve been hit by a bout of bad weather. Rain that just won’t give up and humidity that leaves you uncomfortable and grumpy.
My solution? Plenty of pink, the ultimate mood-maker. Now rain, Rain go away.
