Brit wits



Although I’m too over the quirky-Britness of his collections to ever buy anything, I can still appreciate the wit of Paul Smith’s aesthetic. I have been an admirer of this higgledy-piggledy picture-frame ensemble in his Selfridges womenswear department for years but never have I had the guts to photograph it – until now. Another of my favourite Brit-wits is photographer Martin Parr. The twosome have just teamed up to produce a set of pictures of Paul Smith’s new collection, photographed on the glamorous people of… Ilford. Check the pics out at www.wallpaper.com.

    I adore Martin Parr too. I’m less keen on Ilford but it works well here. (Not going to move there though)

    Guess what my home town is? Now you understand why I moved to Norwich.

    Love the concept though, and had great fun “spotting” where the pictures had been taken.

    Ilford is going up in the world, first it was a Samaritans advert one Christmas, then they filmed the M&S Christmas Ball advert in the Town Hall and now this! Maybe I should move back….nah
