Beehives, breton tops, mustachioed cuties and balmy summer evenings spent sporting French 60's chic in London. What's not to love. And I do really do love this spring/summer collection film from Jigsaw. Total summer style inspiration.

David Doubilet shoots for The National Geographic, amongst numerous other titles. I've always been fascinated by animals and in particular marine life (total nature documentary addict) and these photographs really give us an insight into what lies below the surface whilst fore-fronting the beauty that can be found in nature. Plus, the sun's out and I'm currently planning to go travelling around Thailand so these images of far flung tropical places and species are really getting me excited.

I've been meaning to waffle on about this ever since hearing about this exciting collaboration...
It's no secret that I ♥ Jim Jarmusch. Jarmusch is a Director who always keeps full creative control of his film projects, and that includes the soundtracks. His film's cast an abundance of musicians including Tom Waits, Screamin Jay Hawkins, Iggy Pop, John Lurie, Wu Tang and The White Stripes and their soundtracks are always incredible - as I've previously mentioned. Jarmusch is also a musician; in the early 80's he was part of the no wave band, The Del-Byzanteens, and a slo-mo psychadelic band called Bad Rabbit. Unsurprisingly Jarmusch's influence has equal weighting in music as in film and that is how this news came about...
The Clever Is In The Details
One day on the street, back in 2006, a Dutch minimalist composer called Jozef van Wissem handed Jarmusch a demo. This proved to be a wise move as Jarmusch subsequently asked him to score his next film (currently in production), Only Lovers Left Alive. Last year Jarmusch also played guitar on Wissem's track The Joy that Never Ends. This proved to be just the start of a collaborative muiscal relationship as Jarmusch and van Wissem are now working on an album titled Concerning the Entrance into Eternity and it's a corker. Jarmusch's droning guitar meets van Wissem's flute to create an album that is meditative and experiential. It's definitely tiding me over until his next film.

Also in attendance was Keaton Henson. Much love for this guy. Great songwriter with a great voice.
Oh Burgundy are a Belgian two piece. There music was atmospheric and truly beautiful. Yep, I'm in love but who can blame me.
The Hall of Mirrors exceeded expectations. Lead singer Julie Walter's vocals are stunning and the music has a retro 60's feel with Walter's playing the sweetest of femme fatales. You can buy their digital album here.

London based Israeli-born designer Inbar Spector (great name!) is gaining acclaim internationally and it's no surprise when you look at her dramatic and edgie designs.Her Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, complete with face jewellery and her signature complex constructions and gofic edge is superb. Spector's mixed all this up with lashings of manga and fairytale references to create a magical collection as hypnotic as any fairytale potion. I'm definitely under her spell, are you?!
