Marc Jacobs


I like all Marc jacob's collections but his latest really appeals even though I know in many ways it looks unwearable. I've already posted on it but cant help but want to share the current campaign for the collection. I've read criticism of this collection being over the top - unwearable by anyone but Helena Bonham Carter etc etc - but I just love the creativity/eccentricity.  I don't think Marc Jacob's expects anyone to actually go out dressed in character like in these photos but for me they inspire and delight way beyond just ideas about wardrobe. The pattern, the texture, the colour and the pushing the boundaries on proportion and wearable silhouettes. All that.

Love it all - and love the fact that yellow is still an obsession - you can celebrate yellow day with me again come June 18th!

oooh, I love them, especially the simple belted dress and the sofa. BTW I nominated you for a Sunshine Award over at my blog - it's a couple of posts back. I don't know what you think about these blog awards, but here's one for you! x

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!











Are Ears The New Black?

Hooray! It appears girls with sticky outy ears can now come out of hiding. If the above photos in this months British Vogue are anything to go by the long wait is over. No need to be shy anymore. Such Good News (not personally you understand...I'm just pleased for those poor unfortunate girls who now can take their hats and headbands off...it's nothing to me...).

Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
