Spring is finally here, with some bouts of rain… and allergies. I was lucky enough to be visited by my dear friend Tanya, who happened to be in need of some new photos. Here are a couple of my favourites! We shot these at Villa Sciarra in Rome on a very hot afternoon between two days of rain.

The masculine look, pioneered by power-couple Marlene Dietrich and Giorgio Armani in Dietrich’s heyday, is not, contrary to common thought, a simple staple ‘trend’. In fact, when Armani helped create the iconic actress’s equally particular wardrobe, it beat down the rules of femininity expected to be followed by any on-screen heroine. The beautiful women on screen were meant to be objects of desire for men and aspirational for women; inspiring women to wear long trousers […]
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow formed one of the most notorious couples and criminal duos in the history of mankind. The history of their short-lived career and relationship is dramatically told in Arthur Penn’s 1967 film aptly named “Bonnie and Clyde”, with Faye Dunaway and the charming Warren Beatty front and centre. They weren’t the only well-loved bad guys of their time though – the economical depression of the 1930s following the Wall Street crash […]
It would be the understatement of the year to say that time really does fly. From January to June, six months felt like six weeks and February seems like yesterday. But this is it – my second year is over, Summer is upon us and I’m already being asked to think about my graduation thesis. If it had been anywhere else, time would have been painfully dragging me behind itself, but here it’s as if […]
Every year, fashion connoisseurs flock to the London Graduate Fashion Week in hopes of spotting the next John Galliano or Lee Alexander McQueen. While worldwide there is much spotlight being thrown on competitions to find the next great young designer, they’re only pocket flashlights with batteries that don’t last very long – you get a trophy, a big cheque, an internship and then no one ever hears from you again. The one and only place […]
It seems like military chic isn’t limited to womenswear or double-breasted coats. For its Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Amsterdam-born Suitsupply decided to unite their sartorial expertise with street style trends – mainly, camo. Always willing to up their game, while finishing last year’s F/W collection, Suitsupply asked their customers via several social networks what they’d like to see on their spring line. Over the course of a few months, they narrowed down the responses to a […]
The rock star designer is taking another small step towards the end of his social marginalisation. First, it was Kate Moss’s wedding dress; now, the illustrious Parsons The New School for Design (most famous for being the workshop of Project Runway contestants) has announced that Galliano will be teaching a master class to aspiring designers.
The tasteful choice of charismatic actors for their campaigns continues for Prada. Harvey Keitel, Dane DeHaan, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Benicio del Toro are the models for this year’s Spring/Summer menswear collection. My jaw is on the floor. (pictures after the cut)
