 Converse Jack Purcell Helen

Jack Purcell had a wife and her name was Helen. This Converse shoe was designed in her honor. The signature smile on the front cap is still there, but the tailoring is slimmed down for a woman’s more delicate foot. ”Helen”  is available at retail now in the wildly popular Marimekko print, plus three more solid colors.

More Nail Art Goodness From Sophy Robson

SophyLoveMag1 More Nail Art Goodness From Sophy Robson

Yesterday we showed nail art designer Sophy Robson’s feature with Elle, today a manicure she did for Love magazine. Ooof, this woman is packing when it comes to creativity! One more angle after the flip.

UPDATE: Excellent lifestyle blogger LauraSofiakoski points out in the comments that this pattern is the classic “Unikko” pattern from Finish design company Marimekko. The very delish Ms. Sofiakoski knows a thing or two about nail art. Go check out her “Zipper” nails, which we may just have to devote an entire post to!

UPDATE No. 2: We contacted Sophy and asked her about the Marimekko connection and how the design was inspired. This is what she had to say:

“You are right it is based on Marimeko! The fashion editor I was working with for Japanese Vogue that day was Katie Grand and she asked me to do daisies on the nails. As I had previously worn Murakami daisy manicures on myself, I thought that was what she wanted but it turned out I had read the message wrong. So I quickly looked up Marimekko designs and that is what I came up with. It was easy for me to do as the daisies are bold, block colours.”

Thanks Sophy!
