Bianca Jagger did NOT ride into Studio 54 on this white horse

“I often ask myself how people visualise this fable…Where was Mick during this time? Was he holding the reins and pulling me and the horse through the streets of New York, or following submissively behind me!?”
Bianca Jagger’s letter to the FT, putting the white horse myth (partially) to rest. Continue reading

Caroline Baker stylist

“The early 1980s was a lovely time. Punk had shaken everyone up, the Japanese taking over Paris was dynamic in terms of new looks and working with [Katharine] Hamnett was thrilling for me as she always pushed me to do more and more! I have always loved adding strings, ribbons, belts, torn strips of fabric, net and lace to my styling looks so I was in my element.”
Caroline Baker, Hope And Glitter

This quote is taken from a rather lovely interview with legendary stylist Caroline Baker on Iain R Webb’s blog, Hope & Glitter. I assisted Caroline years ago, and if I forgot to pack her bag of ribbons on a shoot there would be hell to pay!

Peter Lindbergh from his new book Images of Women II 2005-2014

“A lot of mainstream photographers seem not to think about what they’re doing or feel any responsibility toward anything. And by the time they’re done, the models don’t have any trace of themselves left. This thing about looking young with no wrinkles or expression is all so boring really.”

“Technology can allow us to do things with greater efficiency and productivity, labour costs are reduced, but what I wanted to show is that there is a human element lost in that. We are in the middle of this huge transition, and the newspaper industry itself is very much at the front of this process that will happen in every other industry. The beneficiaries of this are a privileged and extremely wealthy few, but a broad spectrum of highly skilled workers are going to be displaced and out of luck for a very long time.”

“The way the industry works, you’re driven to do all these grandiose shows, all these things that are incredibly expensive. And then one day, the sponsorship runs out. You’re on your own.”

“There is something very intimate about shooting on film, it’s just between you and the photographer. Now, everything is like ‘Oh, we’ll fix it in post!’ I fucking hate those words. I just want to be like, ‘Why don’t you fix it now and get it right?!’ ”

Raf-simons-Quote-Of-Day

“I have a huge disinterest in technologies that accelerate cultural speed. Immediately, they make me uncomfortable. But I’m fascinated by what society is becoming, and its evolution. I am watching the behaviour more than the thing itself…I am more interested in mystique and romance, what’s difficult to find, aesthetics that are not in your face. There are things you immediately know are surface, and other things the opposite, and I’m more interested in the opposite. When you find everything so easily, you don’t look deeply anymore and you don’t investigate anymore. And you get bored.”
Raf Simons, Style.com

“In my heart, I would wish for young designers not to get hooked on this fascinating but dangerous game. There may be an instant buzz, but I think that a long and steady read – for example, as for Alber Elbaz at Lanvin – is the way to lasting fashion happiness.”
Suzy Menkes said it best. As Frida Giannini vacates Gucci, Menkes laments the fashion merry-go-round, Vogue.com
