Selfridges + The Sartorialist…My Agender

33015selfridgescollageAgender

I had a great time working on this project with Selfridges. Agender is a subject that has always intrigued me and that I’ve been shooting into for a long time, so the chance to partner with such a legendary department store as Selfridges, made for a natural collaboration.

3515jacketC5971This young woman had such great outfit proportions. It wasn’t until the sun started to beat down and she unbuttoned her jacket, that I was able to see another great surprise – It’s a double jacket sighting!!!!!

3515jacketC5986

 

The colors are great, but so is the idea of pairing a long jacket with a short one (with a long blouse peeking out from underneath).

The Royal Jewels of Miu Miu, Paris

theroyaljewelsofmiumiu1

Finally back in New York today after a full 30 days of traveling for what is now known as fashion MONTH!

 

The very last looks, of the very last show, are still floating around in my head.

 

There was something so regal about the girls in that finale.

 

Completely accentuating their décolletage, by completely covering it up.

 

That funny combination is something that no one can do quite as well as Ms. Prada

On the Street….Archiginnasio of Bologna, Italy

bologna

 

The incredible display of various coat of arms or family crest (?) in the Archiginnasio of Bologna. Some of the crests are not painted with a coat of arms or family crest, I wonder if they are continuing to add to the collection occasionally? I could spend an entire day just looking at all the variations.

Manuela Pavesi…Fashion Legend, RIP

92012MP0165Web Photographer and stylist Manuela Pavesi has passed away.

 

She was someone I always had hoped to get to know better someday.

 

I was always intimidated by how cool and nice she was the few times we met. This was a very sad surprise.

Stella McCartney Introduces Fur Free Fur

FullSizeRender-8

 

Stella McCartney, who is known in the industry for her offering of non-leather shoes and handbags this week added “fur free fur” to her roster of cruelty free products.

 

The designer’s fake fur pieces proudly proclaim “fur free fur” on their inner cuff in the brand’s recognizable typeface.

 

The pieces couldn’t have premiered at a better time, especially considering the amount of real fur that has been seen on and off the runways this season.

Khadi & Co…at Merci, Paris

mercimerci

The great concept store Merci, located in The Marais district of Paris – currently has a wonderful selection of items created by Bess Nielsen for her brand, Khadi & Co.

 

Upon entering the store, you’ll be greeted with an impactful display of ten white dresses, floating in the main atrium.

 

Khadi, a textile that is spun and woven by hand, has a beautiful weightlessness to it (and is especially lovely in the dotted indigo pieces).

 

The selection of Khadi & Co at Merci includes Dresses, kurtas, shirts, scarves and linens and is most certainly worth stopping by if you happen to find yourself in Paris.

A Smaller Paris…With Cinq-S!

cinqparisweb

Paris is the most important Fashion Week AND the most daunting because the shows are often held so far apart from each other.

 

The good side of that, is that you get to see parts of Paris you may never have discovered otherwise.

 

The downside is, you spend most of your time getting from one location to the next.

 

Thanks to Cinq-S, my Paris seemed a little smaller this time around.

 

And with their sunroof, I’ve been able to see a whole new view of Paris as it passes overhead..

You either love it or you hate it, and I think that might be a great point in of itself. At the very least it’s a brand with an identity and vision strong enough to make people take a stand.

 

Maybe you’re not that girl but somebody is, and wherever she is, she’s saving up for next fall.

I Can Wear it How?!…Loewe’s Puzzle Bag

IMG_4170Jonathan Anderson is really doing a great job at Loewe.

 

I stopped in at the Loewe store on Via Montenapoleone a few days ago and was surprised when the salesperson started showing me the different ways you can wear the Puzzle Bag.

 

You can wear it as a backpack (seen above).

IMG_4174You can wear it collapsed as a Clutch.

 

IMG_4175

And of course, you can wear it as you most normally would.

 

I think what was so unexpected about this experience, is that most luxury bags are so pristinely displayed and interacted with in-stores, that you end up feeling quite distant from the bag (even after the purchase!)

 

This bag defies that. Instead of saying “look at me” it says - interact with me. Change my shape from three dimensional and fold me inward. Sling me over your shoulder and take me on whatever journeys lie ahead.

 

Excited to see what’s to come from Mr. Anderson, and what he’ll surprise us with next.
