“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.”

We love Irving Penn’s amazing fashion photography but have just come across this rare book of his “Flowers”. Published in 1980, this is such a stunning book – capturing seven of the most beautiful and popular flowers—the poppy, the rose, the lily, the orchid, the begonia, the peony and the tulip.

My name is Danielle Maugeri and I am a jewellery designer and maker of things

On Sundays I sleeeeeep and or plan a day trip as its my one day off

And I like to eat all the time.  Favourite right now is wood fired pizza from Pizza Mario

My favourite piece of Kuwaii clothing/footwear is all your shoes!. This is because they are still made locally and made well…and because they are so stylin’

Without red wine I wouldn’t be able to function.

KUWAII FILM: BREATHLESS

November 18th, 2014
Breathless

We love 1960’s film ‘Breathless’ by Jean-Luc Godard.  Godard’s first film is an homage to the American film genres that inspired him. With its lack of polish, attitude, anything-goes narrative, and effervescent young stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, BREATHLESS helped launch the French New Wave and ensured that cinema would never be the same.

Actress Jean Seberg’s style is impeccable throughout the film: so chic and totally charming.

Words to live by, from the one and only #AudreyHepburn
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

KUWAII FILM: PARIS, TEXAS

October 30th, 2014
PT1PT2

We love the ‘cult classic’ film by Wim Wenders, ‘Paris, Texas’ for it’s beautiful cinematography, subtle poetic nature and the intwinded heart-haulting love story.

Mesmerizing lead actress Natstassja Kinski doesn’t enter the film until the third act, and 95% percent of her performance takes place in one room. But Kinski’s portrayal of emotion, her quiet yet powerful demeanor and the way she talks…. It’s unbelievable.

‘Paris, Texas’ is a film that must not only be seen, but experienced.
