Kali Uchis’ album, ‘Isolation’, has been out since April but her recent performance for Prada at NYFW (in an ridiculously amazing vintage look Prada outfit) has us listening to her sultry vocals on repeat. The American-Colombian singer exudes talent, style and sex appeal.
“I’m not a Barbie doll, I’m just a multidimensional human being who likes to make things,” - Kali Uchis to Vulture.
Melbourne has been turning on the spring weather this week and has us thinking about the sunset skies of summer, cold icy poles and balmy nights.

Susan Alexandra makes beaded bags, purses and jewellery, with some consisting over 1,000 beads, and are all hand-made.

Serena Williams (and her Off-White uniform)
In the past week we’ve felt overwhelmed by the jarring controversy surrounding Serena’s loss to the amazing 20-year-old Naomi Osaka.
But, Serena’s ability to prove her worth and talent remained constant in the face of heavy criticism.
Complimented by her outfit design by Virgil Abloh for Off-White, (a decision which also came under scrutiny), Serena continues to be a controversial and a positive force for social change both on and off the court.
