The Mulberry Monster...

As the Winter season comes to a close and we welcome the hope that in the coming months we will soon know the feeling of sun on our faces and a warm breeze through our hair. We stopped and remembered one giant love from the chilly season... That giant is the Mulberry Monster. This shaggy, loveable beast was illustrated by Emma Houlston and was inspired by Maurice Sendak’s book ‘Where The Wild Things Are'...Its inspiration crept into Mulberry’s designs through textural furry fabrics, mysterious prints, gothic lace and leather.
A gentle giant and a celebrity in his own right, The Mulberry Monster has appeared on cushions, tote bags and has giant models made in its honour... It’s fashion story-telling and the fantasy we adore. Emma’s advice if you happen to meet the Mulberry Monster “Hide your iPad. He’s really greedy and he’ll eat anything, including your gadgets. He might accidentally eat your handbag too!”... Sound advice.

A world of their own making...

White crisp walls, large ceilings, and a warehouse open plan vibe.
Fashion designer David Delfin and architect-turned-photographer Gorka Postigo have created a gallery of art-filled wonder in their Madrid apartment. Simplistic and calm, light and airy. Their art collection boasts the names of Diane Arbus, Wolfgang Tillmans, Juergen Teller, Tom of Finland and Pierre Paulin... Just to name a few.
In a world of chaos, sometimes a crisp canvas can create the most inspiration.

From top... 1. Reading Russh Magazine and being reminded that LIFE IS GOOD. 2. Gwen Stefani in PAIGE DENIM faded polka dot jeans. We want those jeans. 3. Artwork by Melbourne artist WENDY JUNE - She is an artist, illustrator and designer who puts her mark on prints, cards, tea towels, you name it. 4. FLASHBACK - Remembering when Naomi Campbell fell in those amazing Vivienne Westwood heels.
