Welcome to the first of our monthly round-up of what has been inspiring us this month. From artists, to music, and recipes to news articles, we give you a snapshot of what we have pinned and post-it noted at the Berjoan studio.
In the diary...
Helen Frankenthaler: Radical Beauty at The Dulwich Picture Gallery. The first major UK exhibition of woodcuts by leading by the Abstract Expressionist. Opening ten years after her death, this exhibition shines a light on Helen Frankenthaler's groundbreaking woodcuts, revealing Frankenthaler as a trailblazer of the printmaking movement. Until 18 April 2022
Co-ordinating & Transeasonal Dressing...
The Autumn Equinox has been and gone, and so we are starting to think about how we get longevity out of our wardrobes as we head into the cooler months. Though we are loving the September sunshine, we all know how unpredictable the British weather can be!
Co-ordinating and versatile separates that can be layered are working hard for us right now! We are loving Astrid Zeegan's head-to-toe styling of our Shadow Pleat & Tie Skirt & Tie Shoulder Cami (see above)

Best foot forward...
Loafers continue to be the sturdy shoe of choice for Autumn and as we arrived in September, that instilled 'back-to-school' mindset had us putting away our sandals and thinking about what we will be putting on our feet when the temperature chills and the Autumn rain inevitably arrives. But alas, not all loafers are created equal. And so, we were jumping for joy when luxury Spanish footwear maker Hereu announced their next collaboration with the powerfully feminine Cecile Bahnsen earlier this month. Not a drab school wear loafer in sight...the Slingback Loafer in Blossom Pink is top of our list!
