This is going to be a short and sweet one this week because I think I have already talked about these three women endlessly (Amber Mahoney, India Menuez and Hannah Metz, for those of you confused), and how much I love them, and when they collaborate and create together, it’s like magic to my eyes and soul. I happened upon a few images from this editorial for Betty Magazine through instagram (as usual) a few weeks ago. I knew immediately it would be an editorial I would want to share. The aesthetic makes perfect sense to me, and is probably exactly how I would style a shoot. I could go on and on, but let’s just allow the images to speak for themselves, shall we?
Yet again, I had been eagerly anticipating the release of Samantha Pleet Fall 2014 collection and film, and catching glimpses on social media of all the goodness and magical vibes she always puts out in the world. Remaining true to her vision as a designer (no pun intended), Samantha pulled from historical references, this time inspired by Joan of Arc. Samantha is surrounded by such beautiful talent, there is such an array of perfection she can have model her wonderful pieces and really do them justice — it’s stunning to see, really.
Now, the clothes! This could be my favourite collection yet, if only for the magnificent prints — comet print, storm print and illuminated print are breathtaking! Samantha creates simple silhouettes that fit the female form beautifully, but have their own interesting twists which makes the garment feel like something totally new, and totally it’s own. I would love to get my hands on the Noble Dress in Comet Print, the Passion Dress, and the Cloudling Dress, to name a few.

There are several things I could say I love about TLO’s January look book. Firstly, it’s The Loved One, and they absolutely cannot go wrong, ever. Secondly, is a compilation of all things that are pretty wonderful (in my humble opinion). India Menuez is stunning, always. Hannah Metz’s creamy-edwardian-cozy styling is the sort of thing I would like to be wearing everyday for the rest of this miserable winter (yes, I am feeling totally disenchanted now). Agnes Thor always captures these magical moments, that always leaves my heart feeling full. The whole countryside setting for the look book is pretty spectacular as well (campfire, cute idea!). I recently watched My Summer of Love, and each shot feels like several scenes of the girls laying in tall grass, and mountain tops and day dreaming about a life unlike their own. This look book feels like that, mixed with The Virgin Suicides-esque dresses. It’s moody and ethereal and I love it.
