i first read about PALOMA WOOL here last year.
in that interview with freunde von freunden, paloma talks about her approach and how this project came to be. its an inspiring read. i knew that this was not just another clothing line.
paloma lannas designs are made in small batch limited edition collections centred around the idea of artist collaboration, experimenting and expression.
gathering together her design aspirations and ideas with her love of photography and other artists work, paloma shoots the lookbooks herself – on analogue – decidedly creating imagery as important as the clothing itself.
if this was an instagram post i would be using the # youmoveme.

“this project is about getting dressed and about space or ideas that are created around the act of getting dressed.”
based in barcelona paloma cuts out the middlemen and keeps her thoughtful well made pieces affordable by selling exclusively online. the latest line – collection no.5 – was created alongside an illustrator and 8 different ceramic artists who interpreted the drawings made to bring each piece to life.
i can’t get enough of STELLA MARIA BAERs instagram feed.
an artist – photographer and painter – exploring “the mythology of the desert and the cosmology of space” with watercolours & photographs of ethereal seeming land and planet scapes. calm + evocative. there’s something about the sense of space in this artists paintings and images, the vastness of the desert, of the earth, that i find grounding. almost magical? reminding me that the world is wise.
i think her work is beautiful. definitely one of my favourite happen-upons of 2015.
the laid back earth mother that I’m sure is in me wants to fill our home with all of them.
i’m sure i don’t need to say this but THOSE COLOURS.
follow stella maria baer on instagram. it’s a beautiful place to scroll.
