Budapest, Hungary based Nanushka is making waves with its new collection. As always, the collection is inspired by a strong narrative point of view which is reiterated in custom prints and textiles, always with an “urban nomad” sensibility, exuding comfort and nonchalant style. We're loving the pastels in this collection:
Playful is something Nanushka does so well:
Nanushka is fashion for the urban nomad, for those who are on the move but always at home. Born in Budapest, the designer Sandra Sandor graduated from the London College of Fashion, only to return to her home town to establish the label.
This look says sensible, comfortable, and nonchalant in all ways:
Nanushka is the childhood nickname of head designer Sandra Sandor. The playful story behind the brand’s name is reinforced in Nanushka’s playful cuts and lush fabrics, elevated with elegance and comfort.
This collection exudes a comfortable harmony which contrasts the overwhelming and sometimes uncomfortable noise of living in a big city.
Nanushka is finding new followers in every corner of the world and the brand is aggressively expanding into new markets. Thankfully, you can shop Nanushka in Hong Kong. Here's a list of stockists:

Our previous post about Balesin Island Club is very popular and due to public demand we decided we want to share a short video of our trip for you guys to see...
For fun, we filmed with a GoPro Hero 3+ Black Series and used music by Enya for that super chill feel, we suggest you watch it when you need a nice break from work in the afternoon. Enjoy the final cut here. WARNING: It's very beautiful you might zone into deep vacation mode!

Can you believe that this 500 hectare tropical paradise is just a quick 25 minute plane ride from Manila? That's half the size of the whole Boracay island...Yup! this amazing development is called the Balesin Island Club. It is for members only so let us take you on a mini tour of this piece of heaven.
The island introduces “Seven countries in one island” with its themed villages—Bali (Indonesia), Phuket (Thailand), Balesin (Philippines), Mykonos (Greece), St. Tropez (France), Costa del Sol (Spain), and Toscana (Italy)—designed to look, taste, and feel like the real thing with everything from the architecture, interior design, landscaping to food impressively recreated.
The island offers all resort activities imaginable, trekking or jogging through the forest, fishing, and horseback riding. Enjoy an active vacation with the Club's numerous sports, beach, and lifestyle amenities such as covered tennis courts, basketball courts, and horseback trails; book a session at the Zen - inspired spa suites; enjoy the different culinary offerings at any of Balesin Island Club's many restaurants; or just chill out and enjoy nature, the spectacular views, and the majesty of the Pacific Ocean. If you're more of a water sports enthusiast, go snorkeling, hobie cat sailing, waterskiing, wind surfing, you name it.
