PHOTOGRAPHY / KEVIN RIEDL

Photography is one of my favourite hobbies, especially when mixed with architecture and the colours are clean and minimal.
I was recently browsing Minimalissimo and discovered a post they had done on a photographer named Kevin Riedl, I couldn’t find much about him except for a website link and an instagram, and I couldn’t resist to follow him.
His photography is truly beautiful and I feel he captures architectural shapes perfectly within his shots, and the monochrome palette allows the smallest of details and shadows to become very much apparent. The minimalist nature allows the geometrical shapes of the buildings to appear very prominent.

I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more of his work.

WEARING / CROP CROCHET

Summer is quickly approaching and in Nottingham it’s perfect non-jacket weather. This cute crochet jacket/top I bought from ASOS (by Monki) is perfect as it suits as both an over top and jacket in one.

I recently visited the Simon Starling exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary gallery.
My favourite part was the reflective painterly sculpture and its contrast with the linear ceiling.

BEAUTY / SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE

For my current university project, we have been researching into the art of perfumery and how it is marketed and branded. During one of my research trips into a department store I spotted CK2, the new genderless perfume from Calvin Klein.

Upon talking to a sales associate; their marketing and choice of perfume ingredients* felt so fresh – and has definitely became inspiration for creating our own scent brand in university.

WEARING / SLOUCHY KNITS

As spring approaches, theres something so lovely about not having to pile as many layers on. I find thin knits perfect for the transition between seasons, especially when worn with an overcoat. These knits from Zara provide the perfect balance between warmth, comfort and style.

WEARING / VINYL HEELS

While casually browsing Zara.com this morning, I came across the most perfect heels from their SS16 collection. White, vinyl and pointed; everything I could want in a pair of heels and at £29.99 these are an absolute steal! They also remind me of the Gianvito Rossi heels worn by InTheFrow, which I have been dying over for months – but for a fraction of the price.

NOVELTY / NEW RAF SIMONS

The fashion world went into a state of panic when Raf Simons announced his departure from Dior back in October. The designer felt as though he needed to ‘focus on other interests…including my own brand’ and aren’t we grateful for it? This gorgeous new campaign for SS16 is exactly what we needed to prove the decision was in his best interest. The campaign features Luca Lemaire, who has previously done work for Simons before, along side another model who’s identity is masked.
