Editorial shoot: Bittersweet blues

I’ve wanted to shoot with Vanessa Jackman for yonks. We met on a funny bloggers’ trip to Paris a few years ago and generally catch up twice a year on the fashion week circuit where she shoots street style (her blog is shortlisted for a Bloglovin’ award – go vote!) and I research the shows.

Finally we carved some time this summer to shoot the charming and creative Claudia Gould, who epitomises the new breed of multi-pronged model with attitude. Our friends at MIH Jeans gave us the run of their West London showroom and a rail of AW14 samples. The Phoebe Slim is already something of a cult jean, while we all cooed over the men’s Jean Machine chunky navy sweater, one of those wear-anywhere-and-everywhere staples. I also loved the inky indigo raw-edged straight skirt, styled here with a Post-It pink bra from & Other Stories.

The theme for the shoot was loosely denim-based. We wanted to evoke a laid back but bittersweet mood that expresses the melancholy of late summer-early autumn. So I added to the mix Rejina Pyo’s ruched red skirt, Dusan’s luxurious poncho and a double-layered jacket from 3.1 Phillip Lim, all newly arrived at The Shop At Bluebird.

DUSAN: fashion’s best-kept secret

1 Dusan-aw14

How have I not heard of Dusan before? I discovered it two days ago on a rail at The Shop Of Bluebird while prepping for a shoot – luxe tabard-esque layers that nod to The Row and Chloe in refined fabrics and muted tonal colours (with prices to match).

Amelia, the Bluebird PR told me that the collection pretty much sells itself – “we have complete sell through every season”. And she flagged up the coats especially, “every time I walk past, there’s someone trying one on”. I did some Googling and I discovered it’s a 15-year old brand, designed by Serbian-born Dusan Paunovic, based in Milan. And the best bit? Paunovic is a proud celebrity-avoider. Continue reading
