Royal Loveday

Loveday? For a last name, is a heaven that rescues a sigh. God bless our first model for marrying two concepts I philosophically assume with a crown. And. The. Next. For, well… those lips (exxxxx exxxx exxxxxxxxxx ooooooohhhhh).

Vintage for dummies

My love for anything vintage is far from implicit… The omnipresent aesthetic of the craftsmanship, enduring quality and exclusive appeal of it all rings a pheromone I’m attracted to, the way some animals are attracted to the scent of mates. Impulse relate to passion. It’s this passion that initiated my enquiry on characteristics that qualify items vintage.
Is Vintage just a fancy synonym for Really Old? Because, I swear pedestrians swing the term like the hand down attire worn on cheery play stations. Stealing the authentic value, exclusivity and esteem from the concept. The truth is, real vintage isn’t ordinary and deserves superiority over the stuff made these days. Let’s consider the value time adds to property, wine and collectables to create perspective. That’s the kind of respect I assume with my beloved vintage.
So I’ve cyphered the conclusion that anything almost as old as I am (19 years old0 or older qualifies. In other words, Really Really old hand-me-downs (kept in presentable condition of course).

Hero Rah Rah



Convicted Rihanna was probably the first to grace my hero list… because, that was around the time I recognized my respect for both self-assurance and expression.

My black is beautiful #2


The ordered kinks in my mane bare a body of truth untainted by na├»ve precautions to subject mass indoctrination. As well as … crown the pride; love; strength my knowledge of self and inaccurate judgement shared with indifference has opened my mind to. Who’s to say the pH level of your hair determines how beautiful you are?

Last weekend


In the fairest world, THE NAKED AND FAMOUS would usher the memory of that experience. And. If I were a fictional character, I would have taken the liberty to jump right into the dam.

“Thank you for anyone that didn’t believe, because they motivated us to break our boundaries” said the man of the hour. Kanye West. “I took out mother---ing loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue. I gave you everything that I had.

This is my first collection. Please be easy. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity sh--. I don’t fuck with celebrities. I fuck with the creative in this room, the amazing people who spend every day of their lives trying to make the world a more beautiful place
