Back to the 70s

There seems to be a real movement recently – both in fashion and interiors – for simple, soft neutrals and lots of texture.  In interiors especially, it’s a far cry from the slightly clinical, more Scandi-inspired trends we were seeing a few years ago where rose gold took precedence and...

The Rise of Normcore

I came across a new term earlier this week that I hadn’t heard before. Normcore. It’s a modern ‘fashion’ trend that has been making waves recently and becoming more and more popular. A term said to be coined in 2013 after it appeared in K-Hole’s first issue, “Youth Mode”, it...

I’m guilty of it. I bet you’re guilty of it too. In fact, I’m doing it right now.  There’s no doubt that our phones have become this century’s biggest accessory. While we often associate this addiction to technology with the younger generation, I actually think the older generation is just...

A Shift in Inspiration

Where do you get your inspiration from these days?  Do you still look to magazines as we used to for so many years? Longing for the next issue to come out so you could see and prepare for what the summer or autumn trends would be. Or, like so many...

A First Impression

Style is so incredibly subjective, isn’t it? Much like our love for art, films and movies, but these can’t always be seen. Style is a first impression. Even before we speak, listen or make eye contact. Sometimes it is the only impression. I still think about a look or outfit...
