If you watch only one thing this week, make it this… Beyond. Blew me away and captures Varanasi’s haunting spiritualism better than I’ve ever seen before. Thanks Jemmi for the tip! x

As many of you know, I have a long-standing love affair with India. After spending a total of 3 months there last year, working with artisans to produce a collection of homewares and accessories, I dream of going back and doing it all again (early next year hopefully!). It may have something to do with why I find Maiyet’s latest campaign, featuring Daria Werbowy, so captivating. Finding familiarity in the images, I catch myself reflecting on my own memories of meandering through Varanasi and Jaipur, having visited the very places where this campaign was shot.

Varanasi By Boat

I reluctantly dragged myself out of bed at 5am this morning… and… I’m very glad I did! Witnessing sunrise on the Ganges – pilgrims bathing, holy men performing prayer, dhobi wallahs washing clothes, and bodies being prepared for cremation – made for a morning I will never forget.
