+ Following on from the Resort 2013 shows this week, from sweet colour at Alberta Ferretti (here) to glamour tailoring at Zac Posen (above and here), this season might be about transitioning but the impact never lets up. I think Erin O'Connor is magnificent in these shots chanelling a certain Avedon or Penn vibe.

+ A look back at fashion photographer Hiro (Yasuhiro Wakabayashi) whose use of bold colour and graphic style paved the way to a job at Harpers Bazaar in 1957. Having assisted his hero Avedon, and with a style reflecting a little Irving Penn, his bold images capture the new spirit and a different perspective of 60's and 70's fashion photography; more here via NY Mag.
+ Some subtle interior styling from Australian Lara Hutton featuring everyday objects and organic shapes via MaxConnectors.
+ Karlie Kloss for Americana Manhasset Luxury shopping, with inspiration from this years smash movie 'The Artist'. The catalogue 'Speechless' will show Karlie in different storylines dressed in luxury 20's inspired looks that evoke the flapper era and scenes from the movie. They even hired the Jack Russell terrier, Uggie featured in the movie to appear in these pics. A movie will also be shown on their website from mid -August which will be timed for fashion week. It's all about the 20's at the moment! More images via WWD here. Also check out the Americana Manhasset website for its current move featuring Karlie in 50's suburbia tv sitcom sketch. Too cute!
+ Take a look inside Jacqueline Fink of Little Dandelion's home, filled with bright natural light, painted floorboards, vintage and antique finds. Its the perfect setting for all those beautifully tactile blankets and scarves she makes - you can see more of her home via The Design Files here and more of her fabulous designs via the Little Dandelion website here.
+ My lemon tree is just about ready to be picked so I'm looking out for all sorts of 'lemony' recipes and this Lemon Polenta Cake doesn't disappoint - from the queen of the kitchen Nigella Lawson.
Hope the sun shines wherever you are (it's just been beaming all day today, yay!); have a splendid weekend. x
