Quote of the day: The Cut

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

“l’m thinking of the other two people there that probably want to eat, while you tweak the lighting, and arrange your fringe bag. Just eat! Let them eat.”

This story in The Cut on the staged reality of fashion Instagrammers made me laugh. Who hasn’t held up an event while they snap the canapes macarons for yet another Instagram peek into their so-called fabulous fashion life? It’s no secret that Instagram life is our aspirational life, but I have to wonder, if everyone is posting the exact same version of faux-reality, is it time we moved on?

“Everyone is on their phones and doesn’t take the time to smell the roses. They are getting their dose of nature by looking at my photos on Instagram.”

Queene and Belle: Highland stylin’

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

If I were a magazine editor, I would be complaining that you can hardly see the clothes in these Queene & Belle look book pictures. But it’s not just about the individual pieces, it’s also about the mood and an aesthetic. So personally I’m all in favour of this lighthearted Scottish knitwear brand and its thrown-together styling…. Continue reading

Kirsten Owen in no make-up make-up, smiling and having a cheeky fag on the cover of Vogue Italia. In a plain black jumper. No coverlines. Just fantastic, no? (from September 1997, by Steven Meisel…)

AW14 press day highlights: art meets fashion

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I spent last week doing the AW14 press day rounds and my early highlights include all the art-fashion collections emerging. Each X Other is an interesting collective of artists, musicians, designers and other creatives who translate their work into something wearable, beautiful and often poetic, the idea being that art is always around you. For AW14, they have teamed up with New York artist Maripol to produce these simple pieces printed with her recognisable Polaroids and club flyers…

Vogue time

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

What a surprise to see a Nigel Shafran shoot in Vogue. And styled by Joe McKenna too. Shafran’s last Vogue shoot was 21 years ago and he has brought his quiet observational style to the the UK title with this ode to consumerism (beating Karl to the punch), shot in the temples of Vuitton, Chanel and Celine on Avenue Montaigne… Continue reading

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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

Just in this week: Gap‘s new Spring 14 campaign shot by David Sims. Everyone shows ‘real people’ style these days but Gap did it first and best. This collection is focused on Gap’s iconic pieces – khakis, denim and tees – given a relaxed, ‘Lived-In’ quality. It’s the first full collection by Rebekka Bay, Gap’s new Creative Director who joined from COS. Continue reading

Raf Simons’ SS14 ad campaign has landed (and the first new season drop)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

The Raf Simons SS14 campaign images are in! And although those boots are doing nothing for me, I absolutely love the half-half effect of the headshot and landscape graphics. The campaign was shot in Antwerp by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo…
