The SuperFuture's so bright
When we came across the Loewe Ashley a few weeks ago we thought we'd reached our summer sunglass Nirvana but then we stumbled upon the Tuttolente; a new style for SS16 by hip and affordable Italian brand RetroSuperFuture.
The Collection features six of Super’s most popular frames designed entirely in Zeiss lens glass - the same glass used in some of today’s most sought after pro-photography lenses. We die.
Wet dog, dry Growlmama
It's taken us eight years of London-living to finally accept that rainwear is a necessary addition to our summer wardrobe. Acceptance aside we still find it hard to apportion any part of our bikini budget to a waterproof cover-up.
This year however a new collab between premier New York outerwear brand The Arrivals and Snarkitecture (the art and architecture studio founded by artist Daniel Arsham) makes it a little easier.
The limited edition Element Poncho exemplifies the stark aesthetic of each brand and is both practical and cool. Yes, we never thought we'd ever care about practicality either.
The Poncho has a minimal exterior but a highly intricate interior, that is outfitted with laser-cut reflective pockets, ear-phone eyelets and waterproof safety compartments. As they say, "Embrace the Outside!"
Available in black or white on The Arrivals’ online store.
Could this be the perfect bag for Growlmamas?
Aussie brand, State of Escape may have just come up with the perfect tote for parklife. Made from waterproof, washable neoprene the 'Festival' mini cross-body bag will leave your hands free for corralling wayward pups, while accommodating all of your doggy and human essentials. Never leave home without your house keys again.

Kicks designed to give you a Boost
We love the Adidas NMD Primeknit Runner.
Style and function collide in this pair of kicks made from light and airy Adidas Primeknit for a snug, sock-like fit, and with a Boost™ midsole that will leave you feeling like you're walking on air. Glide through the park!
WONDERBOO wonderfood for dogs
Have you a pup who values presentation as much as taste? If the answer is yes then WONDERBOO premium dog food may be his new favourite meal!
Taste tested by over 2000 dogs and given the paws up WONDERBOO is made from the best of Swedish fish and meat which is gently air-dried to preserve important nutrients and is suitable for all dogs regardless of breed or size.
And then we get to the Jan Vana packaging. Minimal, brightly coloured and designed to double as an on-the-go feeding bowl, the slick Scando influence is evident. Delicious food, delicious packaging.

Dog-leg diners made in the USA
If last week's lucite left you cold, this week we return to modern, minimalist design for your dog's dinnerware needs.
The 'Dog-Leg Diner' from Doca Pet is simple, clean and made in the USA. With powder-coating for scratch resistance, a rubber non-skid base and silicon bumpers to keep the bowls from rattling, our dog muse Frida says, "Fill 'er up!".
Available Black, Orange, Red and White here.
