Emily Ratajkowski for Miu Miu

Italian fashion brand Miu Miu's F/W 22 Advertising Campaign is a Character Study, portraits of Miu Miu⏤both clothing, and individuals: "Photographed by Tyrone LeBon, the portraits of the protagonists – actors Emma Corrin, Sydney Sweeney, Emily Ratajkowski, Demi Singleton and models Maty Drazek, Amber Later and Jade Rabarivelo – are arresting, defiant and direct. The gaze of each sitter catches ours, in environments that can pretend to be everywhere. The focus of these images is boldly on the personae of these figures, their expressions, and their expression of themselves through their clothes." We love Emily Ratajkowski's clean, fresh-faced look.

Paper flowers

If you're a longtime reader, you'll know that we have an affinity for paper art here at TIG, and especially paper art in the form of flowers. Two paper artists whose work we love are Livia Cetti @thegreenvase and Susan Beech @petalunfolds.

Livia Cetti is a paper flower artist, botanical stylist, and author known for her handmade paper flowers. Her love of flowers stems from a childhood spent observing nature in the mountains of Santa Barbara, and Cetti began making paper flowers professionally during her time as a style editor at Martha Stewart. She opened her own studio, The Green Vase, in 2005. Since then, Livia has created installations and arrangements around the world, from Paris to Tokyo, and even a state dinner in Washington, DC. She has also written two books, The Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers, and The Exquisite Book of Paper Flower Transformations. Her creations have also graced the windows of Jo Malone and Tiffany & Co. and the pages of Vogue, T Magazine, and Architectural Digest.

Paper artist Susan Beech creates delicate crepe paper flowers and botanicals from her home in Hove, UK. She founded her studio, A Petal Unfolds, in 2016. Each of her flower and botanical pieces is unique, with every petal cut from the finest crepe papers and intricately shaped by hand, with ink, pastel and paint used to create a soft gradation of colour. Susan studies real botanical specimens to help her to create the finest details and also takes inspiration from photographs and botanical publications. Susan has worked on commercial projects with the Financial Times, Liberty London, and more. Susan also teaches paper flower workshops both within the UK, and internationally with her online classes. Her first book, A Petal Unfolds: How To Make Paper Flowers, was published in May 2022.

Cleaning & Organising

Lately, we can't seem to stop saving images of cleaning and organising and are especially drawn to ones with old-school (non-plastic) cleaning tools and supplies such as wooden brooms and brushes and clothes drying racks; woven baskets, metal dustpans and enamel pails and storage bins...

Joan Didion's Things

Upcoming, on November 16, 2022, Bidsquare will present the live auction, An American Icon: Property from the Collection of Joan Didion. This single-owner sale will include the late author’s fine art collection, furniture, decorations and books from her Upper East Side apartment. There are many, many books and extremely personal items like her well-worn Le Creuset pan sets, a pair of Céline faux tortoiseshell sunglasses, a stunning pink molded Floriform Glass dessert set (that's surprisingly feminine and delicate), a Cartier brass desk clock, and even a seashell and beach pebble collection. Our favourite is the Paris Seafoam Green Porcelain Monogrammed Dinner Service that was so well-used, pieces are missing and the ones that remain show wear, chips, nicks and hairline cracks. It's fascinating to search through Joan Didion's things to catch a glimpse of her taste and style and how she lived.
