Hockney revisited.

In keeping with recent themes, I present these wonderful Polaroid composites by
David Hockney. These abstract collages are really finely executed. There's a certain quirkiness to them that is typical of Hockney.

This image is from the studios on the Old Kent Road, where I worked in 2005. It got demolished and turned into flats or a reform centre or something of similar description. Hell may be an ever so slightly inequitable description of what happened inside. Perhaps.
In fact you could say it's an accurate description of interning for a fashion label.

Destination: Madrid

Hedi Slimane: ByN

Even after his immortal tenure at Dior Homme, Hedi still amazes.
As seen in his online photo diaries on his website.

Prior to SHOWstudio's 10th Birthday tomorrow, Imran Ahmed will be conducting an interview with Nick Knight on his Business of Fashion site. 18:30 GMT.

Material Desires #2

Anthony Price has returned for another capsule collection for Topman. The key piece for me being this grey wool military trench. It felt like real traditional outerwear for me, especially the weight and length of it. Not for the light hearted, or shouldered.

Sunspel SS/11

English heritage brand Sunspel has been making fine quality basics for 150 years now. Therefore it was exciting to hear the news that they had appointed young contemporary British designer J.W Anderson as their Creative Director. Anderson has since introduced a Womenswear line to run alongside it's Menswear for SS/11. The collection contains some great pieces and has a beautiful colour palette of wines, inks and taupe detailing.

ICON: David Hockney

There are not many images that make me long for summer as much as David Hockney's 1967 painting 'A Bigger Splash'. But there is also a rich exuberance in the portraits I see of the British eccentric as I've shown above. Showing throughout the years that great British style shouldn't be limited to bespoke tailoring and tweed.

My Material Desires

Savile Row Field Day

Some pictures from the 11th October when Savile Row was completely pasturised and occupied by flocks of Sheep. The event was created to raise awareness of British wool as a premium quality sustainable produce. I couldn't help smile at the sight of sheep grazing outside Lanvin.

Harmony Korine pour Proenza Schouler

This is a short fashion film by cult writer and director Harmony Korine for New York design duo Proenza Schouler. The film illustrates their A/W 10 collection in a signature Harmony Korine style, which made him famous through films such as 'Kids' and 'Gummo'. He tells stories of Americas dark underbelly so poetically through this Super 8 style of filming. Credit also due to Proenza Schouler for their beautiful A/W collection.

Fruit Jooze

These beautifully designed juice cartons are designed by Australian Student Yunyeen Yong. The idea is simple, effective and very eye catching. 'Jooze' is a fictional company created by the student, and the fresh juice cartons are aimed at keeping young children healthy. A cool idea all round.

Train Still #1

Miniature Gin + Miniature tonic = Thoroughly enjoyable train journey.

Tuesday, 28 September 2010


I think now is definitely the time for young British Fashion, especially in Menswear. With the likes of James Long [Shown above], Katie Eary, JW Anderson, Felipe Llanos Rojas and Christopher Shannon, who have came together into a sort of London menswear 'Bratpack', London has really re-established an Identity when it comes to contemporary menswear.
Finally managed to watch 'This Private Idaho' this week through the (pirated) brilliance of Vuze. Was blown away not only by the cast and story, and soundtrack, but also by the style, colour and garments. It's very fitting with what I've seen of A/W 10 so far. Amazing.

Catch 'Gainsbourg', the Serge Gainsbourg biopic finally getting a UK release at the end of the month. And celebrate a truly original 60's icon of popular culture.

I thought my blog was starting to look a bit monotone and so I've decided topost some images by the wonderful  Chris Craymer. These images are from his romance collection.

After doing the rounds on my favourite blogs I came across this street shot on the Jak and Jil blog. The beautiful printed skirt is by Prada. This trompe l'oeil idea is something I've came across a lot recently, especially at the Maison Martin Margiela 20 exhibition. Margiela often plays with this idea, from his exquisite printed dresses and jumper printed tops to his laminate door stickers and printed walls. 
It also brought me back to the amazing prints from McQueen's A/W 10/11 menswear show, like the Raincoat (literally) above. Bringing back to life the surrealist collaborations of Salvador Dali and Elsa Schiaparelli in the 1930's. I would love to see this as an emerging trend.
