It’s nearly end of summer for both of us since we’re going back to London soon. We love summers in Turkey because there is so much to do ( unless you’re stuck in Istanbul for more than a week-its too hot and the traffic is unbearable ).
Each year there is a ‘summer song’. You might really hate it at first but at the end of the season you love it because it reminds you of all the good memories you had.
So since we’re going back to cloudy London , here are two songs that will remind us of this year’s summer in Istanbul.
Levthand-Cadillac Track ( Sinan Mercenk’s Club Mix)
Lykke Li-I follow Rivers (The magician Remix)
Designed by Elizabeth Fortunato and operated by her twin sister Kathryn. Elizabeth designed accessories since childhood and Kathryn began marketing them when the pair attended Duke. After graduation, Elizabeth worked as a fashion publicist in New York for a year before launching jewelry line with Kathryn in 2007. Made from found, reclaimed and precious materials sourced from around the world. Check their site here .
Indian Paintbrush Ipad Case – They made them exclusively in navy & black lambskin for one of their favorite online shopping destinations: Totokaelo.
Other stores will be stocking the piece – sized to fit an ipad but also stunning as an oversized clutch – in classic tan, but Jill at Totokaelo specially requested the darker colors, and she couldn’t have been more dead-on … LOVE.
Colourful things we love
Matthu Placek is an American born photographer and artist. He recently directed former model Hannah Cohen’s music video (and we feel like we could watch it 5 times in a row ) . You can watch it here . We really liked the song as well and Hannah Cohen is just beautiful.
Here are some of Matthu Placek’s work
“When the child was a child, it was the time of these questions. Why am I me, and why not you? Why am I here, and why not there? When did time begin, and where does space end? Isn’t life under the sun just a dream? Isn’t what I see, hear, and smell just the mirage of a world before the world? Does evil actually exist, and are there people who are really evil? How can it be that I, who am I, wasn’t before I was, and that sometime I, the one I am, no longer will be the one I am?” DAMIEL(Bruno Ganz) at Wings of Desire, directed by Wim Wenders, in 1987.
Beautiful song to listen on a Saturday morning.
‘There is a growing generation of young women designers presenting innovative yet accessible ideas for reusing plastic waste materials as textile.’ Going through the photos you’ll see that waste isn’t boring at all!

BACK TO THE FUTURE by Irina Werning is a photography project that asks participants to re-enact a younger version of themselves, creating an exact replica of a past recorded moment. Most of you probably have seen these photos by now, but if you haven’t, you can visit Saatchi Gallery in London to see the exhibition (or just scroll down).
Sofia Coppola always travels for her movies. During her latest film Somewhere, she was home in Los Angeles; for Lost in Translation she was in Tokyo and for Marie Antoinette, Paris. During all these movies she had to do a lot of research for different locations, so she’s the perfect person to ask about hotels. Here are her favourites- anywhere.
The Ritz, Paris: “Bonafide ‘old Paris’ elegant glamour. For ultimate spoiling.”
Covent Garden Hotel, London: “For a homey place and great service. And, of course, the perfect tea.”
Claridge’s, London: “I can remember staying there as a kid with my family. I love the deco bar.” (DVF designed a series of the hotel’s rooms and suites. This room is one of them)
Park Hyatt, Tokyo: “For sentimental reasons, and the view over Tokyo at night.” (The hotel was the setting of Lost in Translation)
Turtle Inn, Placencia, Belize: “My dad has a little resort there on the beach, which feels far from the rest of world.”
Gorakadan Onsen Ryokan, Japan: “This traditional onsen—Japanese hot springs and spa resort—deep in the mountains tops the list. ‘Get a room with a private stone bath outside.’”
