Quote of the day: Shawn Stussy

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

“The thing that drove my personal business outlook was my first visit to Japan in the very early 80′s. The Japanese culture seemed to be everything that American culture was not. Measured, humble, long term vision combined with decision for longevity; all these things made an everlasting imprint on my business style. Take your time, do not take the first money coming your way without consideration of the consequences, build one strong cornerstone for your foundation.”
Shawn Stussy, Hypebeast magazine

Here’s what he’s doing now…

Wes Anderson on creativity, collaboration and independence

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Enjoyed this piece on Wes Anderson in the Wall Street Journal magazine. I love the guy and his films but don’t really know much about him. This gives a look into his mindset and thoughts on creativity and film making. I’m seeing Moonrise Kingdom tomorrow…

Inside H&M’s summer magazine

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


The new H&M magazine is out and as usual it’s a cracking good read. Each issue has three 1000+ word features and this issue includes one of mine on the magic of fashion shows. That’s not the only reason it’s a good read though. Continue reading

Yayoi Kusama covers June Wallpaper magazine

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

You can keep Jessica Alba for Marie Claire and Cameron Diaz for Harper’s Bazaar, I’m more interested in Yayoi Kusama on the cover of Wallpaper (and she designed it too). My problem with actresses and pop stars on the cover of mags is that each celeb has done so many covers with the required !!EXCLUSIVE!! interview that they literally have nothing of interest left to say. Everything of consequence has been said already. Artists on the other hand tend to be less publicity hungry (obviously there are exceptions) so rarely give interviews and they have a more specific outlook on life which means that when they do, they actually have something worth saying.

If you haven’t yet seen the Kusama exhibition at Tate Modern, do hurry. It ends on 5th June when it then moves to New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art on 12th July. And then on the 15th, we’ll finally see the long-awaited Louis-Vuitton-Yayoi-Kusama ready-to-wear collaboration – with windows in all LV’s stores worldwide showing VM displays created by Kusama of course (think red and white polka dotted eels writhing under the sea). It’s in the diary…

The limited-edition cover by Kusama is available to Wallpaper subscribers and on newsstands in Japan.
