Nadinoo’s “The good life”

TaXeOFiI’ve been a long time fan of British label Nadinoo. “Sounds of the woods” is still one of my all time favourite collections by any designer to date (meaning, I would literally like to own each and every piece, which, when I think about it is kind of the way with all her collections). So when Nadia announced her newest collection that is available for pre-order, I immediately headed to her site to have myself a look. Inspired by the English countryside and appreciating a slower, more relaxed pace of life, this collection is full of easy pieces in a  mixture of loose and form fitting silhouettes covered in, as usual, the best prints. Doesn’t this collection just make you want to run through vast fields, stopping to pick apples with care-free hair, and the air of an unencumbered spirit? If a collection can make me dream of a life that seems far from my reality, then that is a collection I want to bring closer to my life, if only to pretend that one day I’ll feel at peace enough to only need the simple things in life, the good life.

Betty Magazine / Amber, India, Hannah

amber_byrne_mahoney_india_salvor_menuez_betty_magazine_summer_editorial_new_york_fashion_photography_polaroid_beach_wanderlust_dreamy_001This 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?

Nadinoo Play By Numbers

nadinoo8

At last, Nadinoo is back! And once again, she has left me utterly delighted. Creating totally wearable garments for the gal who loves a quirky print, or the gal who just wants to throw something on in the morning. She is the connoisseur of the simple dress that speaks for itself. In this collection she features stunning seasonal liberty prints all made of 100% cotton. And oh goodness, the adorable collars designed to look like daisy petals! My favourites are the Paint by numbers dress, Oopsie Daisy dress, and of course we cannot leave out her infamous pinafores, Art class Pinafore.
