Plant Imagery by Qusamura

Plant Imagery by Qusamura

Plant pictures and imagery featuring greenery puts me in quite a trance, lately I’ve been excited by the mixture of vessels combined with living things such as a cactus or a bonsai. I actually own a bonsai myself and it takes center stage on a windowsill in my house, nurturing it is a very rewarding experience when you watch it develop and grow slowly over time. Although I have a normal bonsai pot it would be great to get something like …

Beyond the Gardens Series by Lonelyleap

I’ve just realised that I’ve not found or wrote about any good films lately, which is shame because we’ve showcased so many terrific independent filmmakers over the years. To break my streak I’m bringing forward this video series that I came across yesterday which I thought was something quite special and seemed to strike a chord with me personally.

Still Life by Jody Rogac

Still Life by Jody Rogac

A menswear designer we have always supported is Dana Lee, her lookbooks are definitely a high point and I love her fresh take as designer, she really has an individual aesthetic that’s quite minimal and simplistic but at the same time nostalgic. This is translated well by the talented photographer that is Jody Rogac, a Brooklyn based creative who was born in England and raised in Canada. Don’t think Jody is on the low though, she recently was …
