Lady Grey

Lady Grey by Tim Walker
Vogue Italia Couture
Spring Issue
Tim Walker always picks me up and throws me into the realms of my deepest fantasies. He creates such stunning images, as if they were a dream. You know instantly when you are looking at his work.
Interesting to see Charles Guislain modeling, I think he looks great! He holds that perfect androgyny.

Insane rings from Japan

Just found these insane rings from Japan. So cute but be careful not to poke someone’s eye out!
These unusual handmade rings are created by Sofia and are sold here, on etsy.

Velvet Dr Martens

I recently discovered the existence of velvet Dr Martens. I seriously need some of these in my life NOW!
They are so perfect and beautiful. Unfortunately unusual DMs I find usually come in a UK3 or a 10! Not much luck there, but if any of you happen to find any in a size 8 send them my way!

Lilly Heine

Lilly Heine uses layers of laser cut fabric to produce soft, sculptural pieces. her inspiration developed from Brancusi’s work, picasso’s naive early sketches and studies of curvaceous women.
I love collections that you find yourself staring at for ages wondering how on earth they did it. Absolutely beautiful!

Heroes

L’étoffe Des Héros
Vogue Hommes International
Sean O’Pry by David Sims
Styled by Beat Bolliger

I dedicate this post to my friend Lauren whose collection this year will take inspiration from olden day macho men; sheriffs and cowboys.

Accessory Overload at Saks Fifth Avenue

I go through phases of wanting insane amounts of jewellery, rings mainly. I seem to have hit another one now, hard.
Browsing the Saks Fifth Avenue website last night I came across these.

Insane Alexander McQueen Knuckle Duster Ring

Beautiful skull bangle and leather belt skull wrap bracelet. The one below is my favourite, I fall hard for anything that has that beautiful oil slick colour.

Really like this weird cheese-grater cuff by Alexis Bittar

Beautiful molten gold cuff also by Alexis Bittar

Arty Oval Rings by Yves Saint Laurent. Which colour do you guys prefer? I can’t decide… I’m thinking the blue is more timeless? I want them both!

Another man

Another Man’s spring/summer 2010 issue
Photographer: Ben Thomas
Stylist: Robbie Spencer
Model: Thomas Penfound
I really liked the attitude of these black and white images, showing that a man can be adventurous and practical with his wardrobe. Love the setting too, I miss the beach so much recently. I guess I have so much work on that I crave adolescent moments of messing around on the beach with not a lot to do.
Anyway, on the down side, I don’t know what’s with the horrible font at the bottom of each image. Ruins the picture a little I feel.

Images from the fashionisto

In her blogging she let slip about the inspiration for her S/S 2011 collection.
