For a long time I have been eyeing on the beautiful creations from Omtura, the Israeli label that creates minimalistic and architectural looking artisanal bags from leather. I read that the designer Anton Edelshtein finds his inspiration sources from shamanism, futurism and urbanism, and that can definitely be seen on the interesting shapes and designs of the bags which almost look like something straight out of a scifi movie.
A week ago I celebrated my birthday and it seems that my wish was granted, as this beautiful grey Omtura backpack found it’s way to my home and into my heart. I’m still in a total awe about it and it’s no wonder that the bag has already gathered many fans and definitely turns heads everywhere I go. Just take a look and you will understand.

This fall Flux. teamed up and organized a photo shoot with the fascinating Pyrrha jewelry line. Pyrrha stems from Vancouver, where the designer couple Wade Papin and Danielle Wilmore handcraft their heavy duty jewelry inspired by old wax seals they found in a box some years ago.
Talismans are what the brand is most known for, but the collection also features rings, bracelets and necklaces with their signature antique patina. This year they have also made a special collection in collaboration with HBO for the Game of Thrones series, which includes talismans and rings each symbolizing the Great Houses of Westeros.
All the pieces are made from sterling silver and gold, and are handmade in Canada. Pyrrha’s jewelry is sold worldwide at stores such as Liberty of London, Fred Segal LA, Le Bon Marche Paris, United Arrows of Japan as well as at their Pyrrha flagship store in Los Angeles.

Facing now the darkest times of the year, these cold and damp shortest of days, the only reasonable thing is to get cozy under the blankets with some hot tea in one hand and a good book in the other. If there was a chance to turn back time, I would probably place myself on the streets of New York or heck, on the deserted but warm beach of Atlantic City which was our next stop after DC. Apart from the wild casinos and nightclubs (fist pump Jersey Shore style, yeah buddy!) , this city offers a beautiful seaside and taking a walk on that famous boardwalk, you can almost feel the history and the smell of bootlegged whisky around you. No Nucky Thompson and the crew at sight though; what a pity.
