Quote of the day: Trey Laird



Kendall Jenner Vogue cover

“I think just step up and do something exciting and idea-driven. Get back to a time when you drove the news, when you created the news rather than, ‘This celebrity is coming out with a project and we shot her in a Dior dress so Dior gets a credit.’ It’s kind of like perpetuating the problem. I don’t think it’s making the industry or a magazine more relevant or more exciting.”

William Eggleston 1970



William Eggleston 1970
This is my favourite portrait from the William Eggleston Portraits exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Taken in 1970, it’s got a nostalgic, yet timeless feel. Maybe that’s the sun-soaked colour quality, Eggleston’s signature, that reminds me of oh so many childhood summers. I expect to see it heavily referenced by designers, photographers and creative directors over the next few months.

Farewell, Sonia Rykiel



What sad news about designer Sonia Rykiel, who passed away yesterday at the age of 86 after a long illness with Parkinson’s disease. It’s well known that she was no longer at the creative helm of her brand, but it was such a strong brand that it retained her striking identity throughout the numerous successive creative directors.

To me Sonia Rykiel will always be about chic girls in oversized knits, wearing boyish berets and long scarves. And the cheery, graphic stripes. And that copper-coloured triangle coif. Stylish, intellectual, independent…who wouldn’t want to be a Rykiel girl?
