We’ve all heard the reference that fashion is art, but what about when it actually is? Meet Tiff Manuell, a designer and artist from Adelaide, Australia. She creates a range of hand-painted accessories, each one completely unique thanks to her process. Tiff works by first painting canvases with bright colors and patterns, then cutting that canvas up and placing it inside a PVC outer shell before sewing and adding trim. Bags of all sizes and purpose, statement neckpieces, collars, and cuffs are all created in the same manner.
Because I tend to dress in mostly neutrals, Tiff’s pieces have been an amazing dose of pattern and color for summer. Inside each bag she takes the time to stitch in a one-of-a-kind logo, just one last special touch that makes every piece feel just for you.
Tiff also creates these dramatic statement necklaces from cut strips of painted canvas that are real showstoppers, color and pattern galore. I’ve been hanging mine on the wall as art when I’m not busy wearing it, and I always get so many compliments when paired with a plain tee or tank.
Long story short – I’ve got a crush, and it’s a big one.

Summer has unofficially been here for a few weeks now, but I’ve been coveting these wardrobe additions for even longer. A few tees, some shades, and I’m basically set. This is the lowest maintenance season and I plan to not only show it, but embrace it 110%. What’s on your summer wish list??

Jess Marie Griffith is crazy talented. She runs a small design studio in Seattle where she sews, paints, sculpts, and collaborates – it’s also where she runs her bag and textile company Pine & Boon. Jess’ work is influenced by raw intuition, utilitarian construction, and artful details that all meld together to create pieces you’ll be sure to use for years to come. Today she’s sharing her process from start to finish – looking and listening, sketching and planning, stepping away, doing it, and testing it out – with us through a photo story shot by Serrah Russell.
