Alberta Ferreti Pre-SS 1106/30/2011

An colour saturated impressionist scene on a man’s shirt, and tile print trousers. All in silk. All a bit gap year meets luxury lounge-wear meets modern work-wear.

Lindsay Dixon being photographed by Terry Richardson for Purple magazine. The crazy paving on her jumper is genius.

   

 

Boyfriend jeans

Zoe Kravitz in boyfriend jeans and a crop top which looks like its by Pucci or Versace. Whoever it’s by, the body conscious style contrasts so well with the baggy jeans, and the Ikat/Egyptian mix print is ace.

Sophie Hulme A/W 11/12

Absolutely love the beading in the shoulder of this black silk shirt by Sophie Hulme from her autumn/winter 2011/12 collection. Her designs always have a masculine edge, and the bags are particularly beautiful, with their plaited leather, metal plaiting details and structured shapes.

You can shop her stuff on ASOS here

   

 

Infra-red06/17/2011

These lookbook photos from Shampalove remind me of the work by my current favourite photographer, Richard Mosse, who uses infra-red film to detect colours which the human eye cannot. And of course I love the boyish styling!

Fedora season

The fedora: in history, seen on artists from Gauguin to Van Gogh. Now, seen on anyone who knows their Stephen Jones from their Philip Treacy. The fedora is a bit arty, seventies and masculine.

Julia Markou, Accessories Buyer at online fashion empire ASOS has bought into fedoras for spring: ‘we tend to sell hats during festival and holiday periods year after year, so tend to stick with it. We predict that fedoras will be the ‘it’ hat this summer. They nod to the 1970s revival trend, which is huge this season’.

‘Fedoras were heavily featured in designers’ collections’, Markou explains, ‘we have bought strongly into them as they had a lot of presence on the spring and summer 2011 catwalks in London, New York and Paris.’

It’s officially summer, so fedoras in suitable soft, pastel shades are bang on the money: Lacoste, Moschino and Hermes went for white, camel and pastel fedoras and Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Yohji Yamamoto finished straw ones with a band of muted grosgrain ribbon. These ones by Urban Outfitters (£20) and ASOS (£22) are just as good:
