MOODBOARD | HIGHLINE SPRING 15

HIGHLINEMOOD-2

The LILYA ‘High Line’ collection is an ode to Spring in the city. The anticipation of warmer days and all the promises that a new season brings.

The collection encapsulates the quintessential uniform for a woman living in the city.
Being equal parts chic and wearable, the ‘High Line’ range has been designed to be ‘lived in’, whether the LILYA lady is riding her bike to brunch, exploring museums or running from work meetings to drinks with friends, she can rely on looking put together with much ease.

Here is our moodboard for a peak into the collection, launch August 2015.

A beautiful editorial shot by Karim Sadli for T Magazine featuring Julia Bergshoeff. The shoot evokes feelings of solitude and unhurriedness, with simple styling working in and amongst nature. We love the uncomplicated restraint of the shoot, making us long for days filled with only sea and sun.

There is something very cool, calm and collected about this beautiful Swedish home. This is a space that is well curated, with a pared back approach with just the right amount of décor to keep it from being too sparse. The mix of old antique and vintage furnishings and the classical architecture as a whole is given a modern twist with industrial elements, marble bench tops and brass finishing’s. A beautiful cohesive colour palette, which is easy on the eye and makes bright natural light the focus.

Born and bred Jan Juc local Prudence Caroline, has some serious skills with a paint brush. This Australian artist has found herself a cult following through A-list admirers to her work being featured on top television shows and magazines. Prudence describes her style as “scruffy and haphazard”. Her incredible abstract artworks take influence from some of our favourites things, mid century furniture, textiles, street art, nature and wildlife. She has a focus on creating art with inspiration being drawn from the “everyday”, although her work is anything but ordinary. We love the liveliness that her art and prints bring to a space, each piece being as unique and eclectic as the next.

We couldn’t not love an editorial filled with denim. Photographer Rokas Darulis shoots Katryn Kruger for L’Officiel Mexico May 2015. Fashion editor Katy Lassen pair assembles made up of chambray, dark denim, and white for the ‘Loose blues’ editorial. The shoot showcases both masculine and utilitarian denim pieces, mixed with more feminine fluted denim skirts and softer white accents. Simple but striking.
