Byron Bay-based lifestyle label, Afends, is whispering sweet nothings across the seas. We are having dreams of afternoons on streets we’ve never seen, and late mornings half put together between the sheets. They’ve got us wanting an easy kind of speed. Their Spring 16 campaign, shot by Samuel Nolan and featuring model, Elle Brittain, is tickling some deep seeded fantasies; girl-next-door turned woman-of-our-dreams. She is pouty lipped and innocent eyed and drawn together in all the right places – the perfect canvas for their casually cool collection. Their overall vibe imbues their clothing with a lifestyle we want to embody on the daily – free-thinking, fun-loving, a no holds barred kind of spirit.

A Midweek Meditation On Zadie Smith’s Literary Brilliance, Michelle Obama’s Grace and Common’s Never-ending Creativity

This week, I’m leaning into love. Love for literature and one of its most brilliant minds. Love for our First Lady who feels like family instead of political royalty. Love for Common, a man whose trademark creative impulse shines on an unofficial remix of “Cranes in the Sky.”
