Funny isn’t it… You could spend thousands on flying superstar teams to exotic locales for a mediocre campaign or stay put and shoot these beauties in your own factory. Here’s the SS14 Margaret Howell campaign shot by regular collaborator Koto Bolofo… Continue reading

Margaret Howell SS13 campaign by Koto Bolofo

I’ll never get bored of seeing how things are made, especially with campaigns like this. Once more, Margaret Howell has worked with Koto Bolofo (surely one of the most poetic of photographers, if I may gush so), commissioning him to shoot at a specialist linen weaver in County Wexford, Ireland, underscoring the brand’s dedication to traditional fabrics and quality production… Continue reading

Koto Bolofo’s clothing collection

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I have been waiting for the right moment to mention photographer Koto Bolofo’s fashion collection and now seems a good time. Inspired by and utilising found objects, clothing and textiles, I discovered it on the Wonderland blog and love his description of it here:
“IT HAS A LOT OF RELEVANCE TO NOW IN THE SENSE THAT IN THIS “MODERN” WORLD ONE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE REALLY GOING FORWARD, BUT GOING FORWARD IN CREATING DISPOSABLE ART AND ITEMS, HERE TODAY GONE TODAY. I FEEL SOCIETY IS LED INTO NOT TAKING THEIR TIME IN LOOKING AT WHAT IS REALLY GOOD, BUT RUSHED INTO WHAT IS SO CALLED “NEXT”.

“MY INSPIRATION IS CREATED FROM FOUND OBJECTS THAT HOLD MEMORIES FROM THE PAST AND WITH THIS I TRY AND FIND A CONTEMPORARY WAY OR “SWITCH” TO BRING IT INTO THE PRESENT. I COULD BE USING COMBINATIONS OF OLD AND MODERN FABRICS. FOR EXAMPLE THERE IS A LONG TAIL COAT WHICH COMES IN BABY BLUE COTTON VELVET. THE SPECIAL THING ABOUT THIS TAIL COAT IS THE INTERIOR WHICH HAS A GENUINE UNUSED VINTAGE BRITISH UNION JACK WHICH BEARS THE FACE OF KING EDWARD FROM THE THIRTIES. THIS IS STITCHED TO THE INSIDE OF THE TAIL COAT. THERE ARE 6 FLAGS THAT I FOUND AT AN ANTIQUE MARKET AND WERE NEVER WAVED BY THE PATRIOTIC CROWDS DUE TO THE FACT THAT KING EDWARD GAVE UP THE THRONE OF GREAT BRITAIN. ONLY 6 TAILCOATS WILL BE MADE, HENCE MAKING THIS A COLLECTIBLE GARMENT. ALL THESE PIECES IN THE COLLECTION HAVE A STORY TO TELL AND MY AIM IS TO BRING THIS FORWARD. MY NATURE IS THAT I LIKE GOOD DESIGN THAT LASTS AND HAS THIS RESPECT OF REALLY UNDERSTANDING THE WORD TIMELESS.”
