Topshop AW17 campaign



TOPSHOP AW17

It’s the Topshop Unique day today at LFW and I’m really into the grown up vibe of Topshop‘s current collection. Highlights: the rigid dark denim, winter floral shirt, embellished slingbacks and fringed tailored trousers, all beautifully styled by Kate Phelan in this campaign shot by Giampaolo Sgura.

By the way, the Topshop blog is really good for LFW coverage. No-one seems to do on-the-go blog reporting any more as it’s all done on social media. I find that really hard to keep up with, especially now so many editors just do Instagram stories. Hardly anyone tweets any more!

I went to the Burberry show last night which was superb, despite the hairaising barrage of animal rights protesters outside. That all seems to have been rather hushed in typical ‘the show must go on’ British fashion but the show itself was excellent, as is the accompanying exhibition.

Sory Sanlé – Volta Photo 1965-85



Sory Sanle Morton Hill Photo Gallery

If you’re in town for London Fashion Week, or happen to be here any time until 27th October, do not miss this photo show! Sory Sanlé is the portrait photographer who would have probably remained an unknown were it not for a music producer noting his work and tracking him down.

Documenting the emerging youth culture and nightlife of newly independent Burkina Faso in 1960s West Africa, his work found its way onto local record covers which then traversed the globe.

Showing at the Morton Hill photography gallery in Ladbroke Grove, these are pictures you can study for hours. Not just for the proud characters and poses, but the styling details, accessories and props that mark each individual out from the next.

Quote of the day: Campbell Addy



NiiJournal

“One major change would be that if a black person does something about black people it doesn’t have to be political. It’s just them reflecting themselves to the world. If a black person shoots something, it isn’t a black photographer or a black designer; it’s purely a photographer. It’s the smaller things that can change people’s perceptions.”
Photographer and NiiJournal publisher Campbell Eddy on creating visibility for people of colour within fashion and media, Indie magazine
