“We control our thoughts which mean nothing,

and not our emotions which mean everything.”

We at Kuwaii love the films of the French New Wave, and in particular those by Jean-Luc Godard. We appreciate the way he weaves cinematic form with social reality and his merging of high and low cultural elements.

“I say, dress to please yourself. Listen to your inner muse and take a chance. Wear something that says ‘Here I am today!’ ”

Iris Apfel is an American businesswoman, interior designer, and fashion icon. She studied art history at New York University. Apfel consults and lectures about style and other fashion topics. In 2013, she was listed as one of the fifty best-dressed over 50s by The Guardian. We love her unique and expressive style.

My name is Melanie Rice

I am a Jeweller

On Sundays I adore finding the sunny spot to stretch out in 

I like to eat the pot of home made goodness that has been slow cooking all Sunday

My favourite piece of Kuwaii clothing/footwear is the theorem crop top in coral
because the colour immediately draws me in and plus it’s playful & fun

 
Without sunshine and colour, not necessarily in that order I wouldn’t be able to function.

“A really good picture looks as if it’s happened at once.”

 

Helen Frankenthaler: active expressionist and abstract painter for nearly six decades.

Her work has been the subject of several retrospective exhibitions, including a 1989 retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and been exhibited worldwide since the 1950s. We love her use of fluid shapes, abstract masses, and lyrical gestures.

We love watching Scarlett Johansson in Sofia Coppola’s ‘Lost In Translation,’ as she navigates the freedom of an unknown city; a small girl anonymous amid the crowds under the neon billboards.

We feature ‘Lost In Translation’ via our Pinterest board “Films We Love”, check it out here ->https://www.pinterest.com/kuwaiipins/film-we-love/
