is heaven-sent! I haven't really met many people that don't like icecream.

Hint Clutch


The 'Hint' Clutch
Originally uploaded by Urbanknit
This is my newest style of clutches. Asymmerty is more interesting sometimes. Its a bit of fun, a bit of formal.

It has been really interesting to see how the same shape and style looks with different fabric combinations. This particular image is of a hand dyed tie & dye. It is know in Nigeria as 'Adire' and has to be my favourite fabric of all time (so far)

The Hint clutch is larger than the average clutch so if you want to make a statement, this is the one for you.

It closes with magnetic snaps and is just the right size to hold your wallet, phone, camera, makeup, keys. All the while, you'll be the only one in a 100000mile radius to be rocking such a piece. There is none other like it as the fabric is limited in production.

handmade and completely unique.

Gabriel

is an absolute classic track. By Roy Davis Jr featuring the fantastic Peven Everett. Its hard to squeeze this one into a genre and it is most definately not mainstream but beautiful and hypnotic all the same. Love it, love Peven.

Have a listen....

Deola Sagoe


A fantastic Nigerian designer. Words cannot capture her exceptional work except that these creations are truly beautiful.
Once visited her showroom with my mum and she happened to be there. She was understated, simply dressed and softly spoken. I was very intrigued and very inspired. Some of her pieces are like works of art and so beautifully made.

Check out her website.... and be inspired... Deola Sagoe
