Finnish accessories designer Minna Parikka‘s latest lookbook is as whimsical and playful as her shoe collection. High top sneakers are adorned with rabbit ears and platform heels are topped with furry pom poms . . . who wouldn’t flip?
Art runs deep in Artur Bordalo’s family. His grandfather, Real Bordalo, was a well known landscape artist in Lisbon. And now Artur, also known as Bordalo II, has made a name for himself with his playful street art and mixed media collages. Created along train tracks in his native Portugal, Bordalo II uses the horizontal tracks to create large scale works of art. With titles like “Heart Attack” and “This is How We Live,” he infuses his sense of humor and personality into each piece. It’s almost a shame that the trains run right over them, but for Bordalo II, that’s just a part of the work.
You gotta love Massimo Giorgetti‘s energetic and lighthearted aesthetic. In his retro-inspired resort collection, three dimensional pineapples, spindly cacti, oversized florals, gingham, and geometric patterns are happily jumping off print heavy ensembles. And the ease of the silhouettes, including A-line dresses, flared jumpsuits, mod shaped blouses, and easy outerwear, make the clothes totally wearable and honestly fun.
Honestly, how flippin’ adorable is this collection of children’s clothing from Belgium brand Morley. The summer dresses and jumpsuits are just beyond darling. And finally, some decent looking boys clothes which is a nice change from some of the more mundane options I’m used to seeing. If only designer Anouck Robyn made some of these pieces in adult sizes!
