Roberto Burle Marx

Brazilian Roberto Burle Marx was a landscape architect, designer and artist. He is perhaps best known by his famously recognisable beach side pavements in Rio de Janeiro. The swirly, wavy design is famous worldwide!

He was also the creator of not only gorgeous tropical landscaping, but the architectural plans for his gardens were artworks in themselves! I'm particularly taken by these plans and their colours and designs.

He was also a modernist artist .. so brilliant in so many ventures.

So rapt with the results!!

Mochi Spring 2017

Mochi label's Spring 2017 collection is a pompom paradise. There's pompoms and tassels everywhere! Mochi's clothes are all ethically made by local artisans in the Middle East, using traditional methods of embroidery to create modern pieces. I love their philosophy: Every thread has a tale. There's also a beautiful children's clothing diffusion line named Mini Mochi.
