FASHION | JEWELLERY | MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA



1. Key Chain | 2. Lost Stone Ring | 3. Gold Toned Brass Rings | 4. Branded Packaging | 5. Cuffs

Maison Martin Margiela jewellery is exceptionally striking. The industrial shapes and the pure and intelligent identity of the packaging work faultlessly. Those of you who follow my instagram (hazelcastle) will have seen my intense excitement at thrifting a pair of MMM boots (for £5 I might add!). I literally cant wait to wear them.

FASHION | ACNE SHOES

Featured: ACNE Shoes
1. Marlin Black $630
2. Comet Black $630

The new drop of ACNE Women's Shoes for AW12 are just SO GOOD. I love the sturdy shapes and suggestion of the 90's. Some day I'll hope to purchase myself some more ACNE, I did pick up a jacket some time ago. I adore the brand, so when I spotted this pair for £3 while spending the day perusing the charity shops (my favourite past time) I had to grab them. The mix of patent and elasticated material had a hint of ACNE AW12 and I think the 'vibram' type sole works really well for this season. I'm thinking up the perfect outfit to team them with, and I may post up a few outfit posts soon.

PHOTO | SELF PORTRAITS

I found these photos on my laptop after beginning the process of sorting out my mac; I think they're about a year old but thought I would share.
I don't often take photographs, and I know little about how to take a good one, but I quite like the effect of these.

FASHION | ZARA AUGUST LOOKBOOK

Featured:

Great shots and the perfect model. I love the mix of tough military tailoring and soft colours and knits.
I consider Zara to be one of the stand out high street stores; always on trend; particularly with its colour palette. It also has a higher quality without a huge price scale.

// ILLUSTRATION / DIGITAL COLLAGE #1 //


So I have been doing a little experimenting of late... and delving into the world of digital collage. It's completely different to my usual style, but I like the idea of branching out into other mediums. This is my first go at some chopping up and placement, what do you think?
