RAW BASIC


WEARING: Melissa Araujo Basic Tee.

I am very proud to say I am done the re shooting of my first collection: RAW.  Have a look at the new editorial here and the lookbook here. It was photographed by the very talented Particle Observer; we have great chemistry on set and our creative direction is always on point. I have wanted to do this project for while, as I felt the first version no longer represented the aesthetic of my brand.

I love the location, the feeling and the final result of the photos. Once again minimalist and monochromatic. There was a lot of time and work invested in this, I could have left it alone, but I am a perfectionist and wanted my vision to come through. This piece is one of my to go to basics, made of bamboo jersey, super comfy.  Seasons come and seasons go, and I  continue to wear it. To get yours, check here.

MESH ON BLACK


WEARING: Sune Top, Acne Bermudas, Club Monaco Sunnies and Ralph Lauren Bag.

I have noticed that a lot of bloggers are sporting a more fall look...not me. I am gonna live Summer until the last day possible, it is my favourite season of the year. If I can get away with a top without a jacket, I will. I have never understood other people's rush to get back to Fall or Winter. Maybe it is because I don't get to go to NYFW, but I will only start wearing my Fall wardrobe when it is time.

I really believe in supporting local and independent designers; so thank you to my lovely friend Tina at Religion Black for sending me this top from Sune all the way from the Philippines for my birthday. Anything black mixed with mesh done tastefully, and I am in. The day these photos were taken was a day of deliveries. I was travelling around the city getting things done, and to the post office to send orders away, from here all the way to Belgium.

LINEAR CROP TOP GIVEAWAY - closed

WEARING: Melissa Araujo Crop TopAmerican Apparel Leather Skirt, JNBY Leather Clutch, Nike Free Run.

I had a week filled with awesome people coming by the studio to check out the LINEAR collection. I love having people over not only to share my designs but also to chat about music, art, architecture and life. I had one of the busiest weeks of my life (no exaggeration here) fortunately I was able to get everything done. Cool, Calm and Collected are words that I am really trying to live by these days. At times they are really hard to follow but I am trying to let go of things that are out of my control.

Now on to something exciting, I decided to do a GIVEWAY!!! You will have a chance to win this Crop Top !!! Good luck everyone. The giveway will be open from today to September, 2.

POPPING UP


Here you have some fresh pictures of what is going on in London with my collaboration with FOUND East London with their first Pop Up Shop located at Box Park. If you live around the area check it out , say hello to the two babes who are running the show Raekha & Meryl there and who knows maybe buy a piece. I am loving the vibe of the space, I wish I was across the pond and could actually be there. These photos makes it easy to see and feel like part of the event.
