Things to see: Disobedient Bodies



Disobedient Bodies Hepworth Wakefield gallery

Last week saw the opening of Disobedient Bodies at the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery in West Yorkshire. It’s curated by Jonathan Anderson (of J.W.Anderson and Loewe fame) and looks at the parallels in how fashion and art treat the human figure.

It sounds incredible, with pieces from the Hepworth Wakefield collection alongside iconic fashion examples from the likes of Christian Dior and Comme des Garcons. If you want a clue to how Anderson manages to juggle his many responsibilities, I can make a suggestion. Obsession seems to be the common thread to all his pursuits and I think that’s what keeps him going.

I spoke to him about this and his personal art collection in an interview for Sothebys.com. You can read it here.

For something so discreet it gets a lot of compliments! (more…)

Why don’t we see more boots worn with suits? Considering the weather is so routinely dire in our city, it makes so much sense. I love these badass western boots worn with Céline’s supersized trouser suits for AW17. (more…)



30 years of A.P.C.



A.P.C. AW17

This year is the 30th anniversary of A.P.C and if there’s a more timeless ‘fashion’ brand around, I’d like to see it. I’ve been wearing the coats, jeans, shirts and boots the whole time, I think the only things I haven’t bought are dresses and skirts. Last week I tried on a cute little bucket hat that I’m still dreaming about. (more…)
