Leigh Lezark

Mawi makes another, sunny, appearance in Vogue Turkey, modelled by sultry darling of the New York fashion and music scene- Leigh Lezark. You’ve heard the name, but perhaps you’re not sure what she does. This, may or may not, at least partly explain what’s garnered her so much attention. That’s if her Snow White hair and glacial stare don’t already speak for themselves…

I love the composition of this shot particularly- the graphic lines of the white panelling and doors against the crisp blue waters. I have blogged before about the Turkey of bazaars and cornucopias, but these images evoke a very different Turkey of bottomless turquoise waters and balmy Mediterranean summers.

Mawi Dynasty Collection – Jewel Cluster Pendant £365

Available Here

If you’re thinking more about wrapping up for winter, than posing poolside in a sexy swimsuit, this piece would also look amazing with a tailored LBD or a simple white t-shirt and one of the new season’s butter-soft leather skirts.

Love from Mumbai,

Lucy

Heading for the Hills

Last weekend I headed out of Mumbai, about 100 km in fact, to Matheran – India’s smallest hill station for some much needed fresh air. Established by the British around 1850 as a summer resort and refuge from the heat, today it retains a sleepy charm. All motorised vehicles are banned within Matheran itself, so once you reach a certain point you must proceed on foot or on horseback. The central street with its general stores and roadside stalls selling handmade leather sandals suddenly takes on a Wild West aspect as young boys gallop through on horseback in a cloud of bright red dust.

During the day we went riding with a guide who took us on a route which took in a series of established ‘Points’ with names like Honeymoon, Echo and Sunset, and which offer particularly spectacular views. We  stayed in an old house in the woods with an enormous verandah where we sat and had tea and felt very colonial. In the evening we ate by candlelight around a huge mahogany table. And woke in the morning to the sound of monkeys playing on the roof. The guys who worked in the hotel had catapults to scare them off!

I wanted to share these pictures with you, as Teresa (a Mawi girl who has now moved on to Burberry) puts it, to “get you dreaming”…

Love Lucy
