I am an Instagram maniac and I openly confess that I spend too much time on filtering my feed. But it’s irresistible, when you have so many great accounts to follow! If you are ready for a dose of beautifully curated walls, inspiring photos and delightful shots – see my February recommendations!

@___joanneburkejewels____ / Based in-between Rome and London, Joanne Burke’s beautifully rare jewellery is like wearable art. Inspired with Ancient forms and motifs, the designer works with bronze and gold to create one-of-a-kind charms, earrings and necklaces. Note that her editions are very limited in stock – so if you want to put your hands on one of those charming, whimsical pieces, be fast! And, of course, her feed is equally dreamy.

@fjura_ / Fjura was stablished in 2005 by Simone Gooch in Sydney, and ten years later moved to London. The florist (who can fittingly be called an artist) is known for creating seasonal flower arrangements, whether in form of hand delivered bouquets or floral installations. Those are the most mesmerizing flowers out there. Can’t get enough.

@avedonfoundation / There’s no need to introduce Richard Avedon, one of the greatest photographers of humankind. I’m so glad Avedon Foundation exists on Instagram – it’s always a pleasure to revisit the master’s visuals, whether it’s Lauren Hutton in PVC or an unseen outtake.

@sarahandelman / Even thouh the cult Parisian concept store, Colette, closed its doors in December, it’s good to see through the eyes of Sarah Andelman, the co-founder. What is she up to next? Where will she go? I need to know.

@rarebookparis / I wrote about Rare Book Paris once… but it isn’t enough. The vintage books and magazines seller shared those incredible shots from an Issey Miyake catalogue recently. Too good.

#InstaLOVE – December 2017

I am an Instagram maniac and I openly confess that I spend too much time on filtering my feed. But it’s irresistible, when you have so many great accounts to follow! If you’re ready for a dose of beautifully curated walls, inspiring photos and delightful shots – see my December (by the way, the last of 2017) recommendations!

@mrmattberman / Matt Berman’s feed is like a treasure chest of vintage moments starring Cher, Lauren Hutton and the late Johnny Hallyday. Those times…

@concept21store / My favourite Concept 21  has just reopened in a new location – and I’m more than happy to see so many great Polish designers there. Even if you’re not in Poznań, take a look at it!

@suzannekoller / The co-founder of Self Service and fashion director at Me Le Magazine du Monde, Suzanne Koller, posts the best backstage snaps you can imagine. Also, I’m always intrigued by the way she portrays Paris. That’s chic with no cliché.

@m.o.endres / That feeling when you want to move into somebody else’s house is quaranteed, once you induldge yourself in Maura Endres’ feed. Really, be careful with this one! It’s too beautiful.

@le__dauphin / ‘Glamour is terror’, according to this anonymous Insta-curator. Subversive, eerie and distubring, yet sexy – that’s how one can describe this visual diary, filled with Madonna’s underrated moments, 90s Alexander McQueen and drama-wise femme fatales. Love it.

@hobomag / This very ‘normal’ photo of Tilda Swinton, taken by Juergen Teller, is the most striking thing I’ve seen for months on Instagram. No explanations needed!

@marrakech_brooklyn / Who doesn’t love an eternally chic mood-feed? The one curated by Paul Rowland is my latest favourite, with some great Debbie Harry S&M / Lauren Hutton in mud moments.

@robbiespencer / Robbie Spencer is Dazed & Confused Magazine’s creative director. His Instagram feed is solely dedicated to his work. He posts rarely, but when he does, you just want to ‘bookmark’ each post. Whether it’s Lily McMenamy in a Balenciaga couture gown and Robert Quinn’s houndstooth body or Junya Watanabe neo-punks, Spencer is one of the brightest minds behind London’s fashion scene.

@haleywollens / Haley Wollens is a stylist, who doesn’t necessarily want to style the editorials in the most ‘safe’ way – the looks rather disturb, than please the advertisers. Also, she works with Chloë Sevigny, dressing her in Saint Laurent and Y / Project. That’s quite a match!

@wilfridwoodsculptor / Wilfrid Wood studied graphics at Central St. Martins, then got a job in publishing. As he puts it in his own words, he got bored of that and applied to train as a ‘headbuilder’ for the satirical TV program Spitting Image. When that ended I became a freelance sculptor. Currently based in East London, Wilfrid’s incredible clay sculptures satirically resemble everyone, from Sir Paul McCartney to Angela Merkel. I love most current venture into fashion world: his Casil McArthur’s head is everything, commissioned for 10 Men Magazine.

@thesartorialist / Scott Schuman‘s street-style shots are nothing new. But I just have to share those two incredible images above – Emiliano Salci and Davide Marello’s outfits. This perfectly pictures my constant style dilemma – edgy pajamas or classy Milano? Can I be both?

@mohawkgeneralstore / With stores in Silver Lake, Santa Monica and Pasadena, Mohawk General Store makes you drool – even if you live on the other side of the globe. Their feed is filled with in-store editorials (note all the Dries Van Noten goodness) and aesthetically gripping shots of the wood-filled interiors. The ‘mood’ pics are great as well. Make sure to visit the Mohawk fam during your next trip to Cali…

@saintrecords / Well, if you love Solannge‘s heavenly music, please follow her (and her bold fashion / hair statements).
