FASHION IS ARCHITECTURE









Sui He for Glass magazine; a shoot-full of thick textures and dulled down hues of grey and purple, to give the shoot a very bold and distinctive look. It has been heavily styled and directed to make the most of the #15 ranking of female models, that is Sui He.

 As you know. I am a sucker for those heavily promoted exhibitions, focused around fashion and mainly directed at a particular influencer that has somewhat altered the industry. Last weekend I managed to take a trip down to the design museum over at London Bridge to visit 'HELLO MY NAME IS PAUL SMITH' by Paul Smith. Not going to lie, but I can't say I'm the biggest fan of his collections, but as a person he is always one to watch in terms of drive and passion, but also the way in which Paul Smith (the brand) is branded.  It's an interesting story really, and the exhibition truly exposed the in's and out's of the brand, from recreating his first showroom in Paris, to a literal pick-up & drop of his current studio. It was educational and inspiring, which is all you can really ask from an exhibition ...plus the before and after wandering, and independent eateries, which would not make these days the same!

CROSS-HATCHED HARD







Her name is yet to be confirmed for the centre of what I think is perfection, but Zara is really pulling out all stops right now. This small product shoot  for the Zara Woman SS14 collection has got it all right. Digging the mix of textures whilst maintaining an effortlessly smart look, and of course, in a toned down colour pallet to really give it the appreciation it deserves for the mix of layers. 
Ps. Just got this top from Zara & despite fully embracing the no boob no bra thing it looks fierce. Clean lines, completely colourless and my first set of cuff links. Get in.
