In The Schedule

Hope you've all had a fruitful week, it's been a busy one over here but I've managed to source a few new links here and there... let's go -

+ A short film from the house of Ferragamo featuring russian fashion editors Miroslava Duma, Elena Perminova and Anya Ziourova on the way to a big night out inspired by the sumptuous 'russian' vibe in the Ferragamo Fall 2012 clothing of course- all clothes shown in the video available for sale.  The shoes, the shoes! Love the music too... (via Fashionologie)

+ Take a look inside this Interior showroom/shop, The Apartment in Copenhagen.  An all white space which has been dressed with furniture and objects and art displayed in an apartment setting - there are some seriously gorgeous nordic designs on show here!  (via Trendland) 

+  The 15th anniversary celebrations for Fendi's Baguette bags are still going strong with the bags now available online through  Here a short film showcasing the work of artist Maurizio Anzeri and his beautiful embroidery work 'on' a baguette and Silvia Venturini Fendi - so to speak.  It's quite mesmerising watching this ... I think it's beautiful!  (via Style)

+  Mannequins... in all their size 2 sculpted glory... every wondered how, why, where - An interesting interview with Ralph Pucci, master mannequin creator.  Can you get a supermodel to look even more perfect?  From the beginnings as just window dressing, to something of a fantasy or modern art form always striving for perfection - whatever that is...  (via Nowness)

+  The month of October means its racing season here in Melbourne... and that means Hats - if you're need of some inspiration from a by-gone era, take a look at these beautiful images of hats from 1913 - 1915.   It is still about embellishment, feathers, and being seen after all!  (via Anothermag)

+  And lastly, because you asked for the recipe of this Spinach & Ricotta Tart that I posted about earlier this week -  

Take 1 sheet of Puff Pastry and cut down the middle making 2 rectangular pieces.  Score 1cm border on each sheet and prick the middle section of the pastry.  Put in the oven at 180degree for 10 mins until starts to brown.   Take 3 cups of spinach (or more depending on how much you like for taste - you know how spinach reduces when it cooks up), and saute in some oil together with a finely chopped onion.  In a separate bowl, whisk 1 egg.  Add 250g ricotta, a bunch of finely chopped mint, a bunch of finely chopped flat parsley, salt and pepper to taste.  You could also add a 1/4 teaspoon of sweet paprika if you like.   Add the cooked spinach to this ricotta/egg mixture and combine.   Take the puff pastry out of the oven and press down the middle section leaving the border 'puffed'.  Scoop the ricotta/spinach mixture into the middle.  Brush some whisked egg on the puffed border area.  Add some pinenuts to a hot pan and gently toast them until golden - sprinkle over the ricotta/spinach mixture.  Place tarts in oven for a further 10 minutes or until browned further.  Serve hot with a salad - easy.

Enjoy the weekend. x
