Autumn Inspiration - Saltwater....


Fist off...thank you to Selvedge magazine for planting so many seeds of inspiration in my mind over the last few days.....

For my last day of Autumn Inspiration week...I have been exposed to, and filled up with, the beauty of Saltwater clothing - a small designer brand that has been slowly building in popularity over the last 8 years and have recently opened their first shop at 98 Marylebone Lane, London. As well as the divine garments that Saltwater has produced for Autumn/Winter 2006, what I am especially inspired by is the styling, and photography for their delicious campaign which was styled and photographed by the amazing and talented Kristin Perers {see her work by clicking on her name in the sidebar}....who is perhaps best known for her work for Toast. The hues, colours and contrasts Kristin has created in this campaign are just perfection....so evocative of Autumn in every way. I even love how the images have a slight grainyness...that clear crisp mist that Autumn brings that makes everything so clear it becomes blurred in a mixture of colour and texture {does that make sense??}....mmmm.

I have really enjoyed this week...just looking, and letting my fancy explore. Inspiration is never as far as you think..that's my lesson for the week. I hope you have enjoyed it too!!

Happy Friday! :)

ps:: I have a few more quick links for tomorrow as well.....just to kick start the weekend you understand, so see you then ;)

what a beautiful catalog! i knew kristin perers from her book A Home for All Seasons, which i just still love so much. so glad to see other work by her. the photography is awesome , too. i like the dark tones and how the shadows sometimes merge. wonder who the photographer is... it is so nice to see something that is not so polished-up and more natural.
thanks for posting this!

btw, i really enjoy your blog :)

Hi Abigail!
It has been a while since I looked into your blog and I just found out we are on the same sort of subjects...fashion and the mention of Toast being one. But I suppose when autumn arrives we just feel like being inspired by really nice clothes...I love autumn clothes.
I also love Saltwater with its pratical clothing...and this last catalogue has great, inspiring pictures.

my hubby got me a subscription last xmas to selvedge. one of my favorite things about it is the way it smells when you open it...like a painting studio. mmmmm.
