Things to Come...

Fresh from Da Da sweatshop, a slice of things to come, silk wrist cuff, currently in pink and red, but I will be cooking with lemon yellow and white as well. So If I'm not writing as much/often as before, it's only because I am working very hard, every day, towards opening of my new Etsy shop....

Tom Scott

Oh, how I love the work of Tom Scott... no, I take that back, I adore the clothes he makes. It's just like that perfect song, seemingly effortless, seemingly in shambles, but just right! I'm happy to see how true to himself he stayed with his F/W 2008 collection. Recently, I revisited a site of one of my favorite designers only to find out that the person whose work I fell in love with had been kidnapped and in their place came an impostor... I don't think that will happen to Tom Scott.

Cody Ross

is the label, NY City the place, Cody Ross brave new maker behind it all. Courageous, fresh, with a hint of the eighties (but in a good, smart way), clothes that make sense! Beautiful, and unburdened with unnecessary details, cuts that work! It's as simple as that, and Cody Ross knows it: It's new yet familiar...

Summer Circus

The summer is officially here, and I have started a new job as a studio photographer. Fun and exciting, taking pictures of people, marking moments in days, time that would have otherwise been forgotten...
What better way to celebrate the summer and brave new things in life, than by wearing one of these, my latest: Summer Circus skirt. Have a beautiful summer!

Mustard Ties

For her and him, cotton and silk ties, adorned with stripes and dots screen printed in mustard. I made these a few months ago, thinking of stains and how we react to the phenomenon of stained fabric. Little bits of food on clothing, so unacceptable, when in fact it could be fun to wear a little mustard on your tie... just because you're not supposed to...

Da Da Vest

For a quite some time now, I wanted to make a simple free form vest that would be fun to wear, easy to layer over a dress or tunic, one that would not obstruct... a little something to make one a bit warmer... The gray felt vest came first, but now I'm testing other materials such as cotton, linen, and a few different soft jersey blends.
