    All That Remains + Henrik Purienne

    Le ‘a Vinson  ||  A Guide To Summer

    When two of your favourites collaborate to create some really beautiful imagery and all captured on the beautiful spanish island of Ibiza, well this personally ticks a lot of boxes for us. It’s no secret we are massive fans of All That Remains each and every season,  loving every collection and hoping all the pieces will magically appear in our closet. You’ve got to love those 70’s inspired crochet bikinis by ATR which is so well complimented by Henrik Purienne style and work, colours and tones. We adore these two and were so thrilled when we heard of this shoot, a match made in heaven really! A Guide To Summer perfectly captures that eternal youth and endless european summer we all dream about, chasing the sun, salty hair, spanish beer and the Med, what more could you want? 

    – We hope you love this as much as we do, Salute!  :)

    The Mirage House | Greece

    This is definitely one of those mind blowingly incredible places where architecture and landscape marry oh-so well, to create some sort of design magic! Floating above a treasured entrance, a unique  rooftop infinity pool embellishes beautiful Tinos Island in Greece’s Cyclades archipelago. The largest of its kind, Tinos Island has recently become a focal point for architectural inspiration. Among the island’s derelict windmills and over 1000 artistic dovecotes, sculptors and painters have found inspiration and so did Athens-based studio Kois Associated Architects when creating the fascinating Mirage House.

  • All That Remains Love

    There is nothing that makes us happier than seeing one of our beautiful, talented friends do well. All That Remains is the ‘love-child’ and creation of Leaha Lockley and with each season we fall more and more in love with the her collections and the story behind each item. All That Remains clothing is 70’s inspired, hand-made, whimsical and hard to ignore once you see and touch in the flesh. Its hard not to want each and every piece of all her collections, every season. We can’t wait to see what you do next! xxx

     ALL THAT REMAINS / PHILOSOPHY

    NOT MADE IN CHINA  ||  USE YOUR CONSUMER POWER WISELY!

    An Artefact, a piece of scared past, a dream like state, every piece of clothing tells a story, a nostalgic memory, a cosmic dusted love affair … A story of a lover, a poignant moment, a believer in a time when clothing was not a mass produced Endeavour & there remained the spirit of creating something personal.

    All That Remains is a heavenly creature, beads, bohemian ikat cloths, intricate & delicate leather, hand stitched embroideries adorn her hauntingly beautiful being. She sheds her everyday life in favour of her longing for the exotic. Each collection a symbolic representation of her true self, a patch work of memories & inspiration discovered in people, places & treasures found in travelling the world & the falling in love with the craft man of another time.

    Universal language is spoken, the exchange of love is the only blue print All That Remains wishes to leave on this earth, that’s why the commitment to only ever producing less than 30 pieces of any one style will always remain.

    As a lot of ATR is hand crafted and Individually made, many hours, days and nights can go into each piece of clothing. No two pieces of ATR can ever be the same & they need to be handled with the upmost love and care.

    We thought we’d introduce you to one of our all-time favourite photographers, Slim Aarons.. THE MAN! Born and raised in New York in 1912 he was regarded as one of the most influential magazine photographers of his time. Aarons enlisted in the US army at 18 years old as a war photographer, later serving as a combat photographer in World War II and earning a Purple Heart, he quickly learnt that the only beach worth landing on was one “decorated with beautiful, seminude girls tanning in a tranquil sun.”

    Having moved to Hollywood California after the war and becoming a personality himself, he began photographing the more superficial things in life “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” “I knew everyone,” he said in an interview with The Independent in 2002. He photographed socialites, jet-setters, the rich & famous, nobles and celebrities, usually in their own lavish settings, and he never used a stylist, or a makeup artist. His ability to portray the people he photographed in a positive light meant he was welcomed at these high-society gatherings for this reason. I knew everyone, they invited me to their parties as they knew that I would not cause them any harm”. “I was one of them”.

    What we love most about his work; peeking into the luxurious homes, pool areas and backyards of some of the most famous and glamorous celebrities and notables over the years, you’re left wondering what it would have been like to be apart of their opulent and extravagant worlds.
