Trip to Sydney










Ruby and I just had a wonderful weekend in Sydney with my sister and her baby girl. It was great to spend some time with them and get to know little C better as she has grown so much since we saw her six weeks ago. Vowed not to go another six weeks without seeing her. Her current obsession is "puppies" the same obsession shared by my little boy Archie who is five. She would outdo him though I'm sure. Archie draws the line at softly chanting "puppies, puppies" to himself every night before he drops off.

The other great thing about Sydney was visiting ReVAmpt - the place which sells mid century modern treasures. There is just no way you'd find this stuff in Canberra. I took some photos of my favourites mid century delights (the cupcakes are from Bondi junction. Hopefully they are much fresher).

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!











Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.




Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
