Collaborations

MONKI X LYNNIE ZULU

What do you get when you cross cool Scandinavian brand Monki with the work of London-based illustrator Lynnie Zulu? Answer : one of the most colorful collaborations of the summer! Matching Zulu’s tropical illustrations with Monki’s selection of separates – tshirts, jumpsuits, flirty dresses, fun clutches – the collection reads like an ode to colorful eighties aethetics. “I only want one thing,” confides Lynnie Zulu, “to spend the summer by the pool in this printed bikini!” Sounds like a plan…

Monki x Lynnie Zulu, available in stores and on the Monki e-shop. Check out Lynni Zulu’s illustrations on her Instagram account.

STYLE CONVERSATIONS : PAULA CADEMARTORI

Color, patterns and fun : a winning combo that goes straight to our heart. Trained at the prestigious Instituto Marangoni fashion school, Italian-Brazilian designer Paula Cademartori fed from her stint at Versace’s style office to create a brand of exquisite leather goods, all Made In Italy. Her vibrant handbags, complete with the signature metal buckle crafted by Paula herself, have been on our radar for a while now, but it’s her amazing debut footwear collection Lotus that got us thinking we really should sit down and have a chat together. Paula tells us about matching unexpected colors, how to get noticed without showing off, and why a good song is the only creative fuel you need : take notes!  (more…)

Timeless muse

GRACE JONES

This week we celebrate the style of Grace Jones, singer, songwriter, model and all-round icon. Her picture for Jean Paul Goude is maybe one of the most iconic fashion snapshots there ever was. Did you know that on top of working together (remember the infamous cage photograph that created such backlash for being ”degrading to women”) the duo actually lived together for many years and had a son, Paulo? We love her fierce attitude and impeccable Alaïa suits – and the fact that, over thirty years later, her extravagant on-stage persona continues to inspire most of the major pop singers nowadays…
