Arnauld Lajeunie

Just came across this photographer and loved his series titled ‘Langema’. Arnauld is based in Paris and often shoots rather erotically-charged pieces as well as photos that show the landscape in a new, raw perspective. He also co-founded erotic magazine, L’imparfaite.

What I love about these images though is the juxtaposition between the hyperness of the colour and the neutrality of the landscape. An interesting and provoking contrast between two great bastions of nature.His work has been featured in catsanddogsparis.com and his work ranges from gorgeous landscapes to vulnerable nudes. He is planning a move to London so expect more of his work in a lot of British publications soon. Watch this space.

Adieu AW14 collection

"Shoes maketh the outfit". It is a philosophy I would have tattooed on my heart if I could because they really do. Look at a man and then look at his shoes and that will tell you more about him than his twitter feed and facebook combined. So here’s hoping my latest shoe porn crush says nothing but good things about me.

Adieu has only be on the scene since 2012 but are already becoming firm favourites with the fashion set. They have kept their style’s of shoes mainly based around mid-century youth groups i.e. teddy boys and have found popularity amongst the young and old. AW14 saw them look slightly further afield for inspiration whilst staying true to the heritage of which they have built such a successful brand.

image

For AW14 they looked at the electric colours of Tokyo’s nightlife and combined it with the classic style’s of the subcultures emerging post-war in Europe (think Zoot suits and Zazous). It’s a collection that appeals to every type of man from those of us who like to make bold statements to the guys who just want an upgrade to something other than a New Balance trainer (and let’s be honest, that is a trend that needs to die now). For next season, Adieu will make sure that you have the fanciest feet bar none.

Topman x Astrid Andersen

Finally! Images have been released for this summer’s Topman collaboration with Astrid Andersen launching June 12. And it is looking epic. All 17-pieces of them.

image

The danish designer has created some incredible pieces, all emblazoned with her signature designs from basketball shorts to hoodies to sweatshirts. Don’t expect this to be a subtle collection though because the palette is predominantly hot pink, bronze, black and white. But then again who would want to stray away from such a kick arse palette?

image

Of course, if you are making a bold statement in your clothes, you’d better find a model who can bring just as much swag and attitude to the game. And who better than A$AP Ferg? Those who are dedicated followers of (men’s) fashion know that Astrid is the girl who amps up streetwear into ultimate statements of power and luxury. And it looks fucking sick. Bring on the 12th

Bright Young Things 2013

I am one of these people who gets more excited about new designers than I do about the big power fashion houses. Mainly because being in London mean that the new, young designers tend to bring out the more interesting and conceptual pieces that I am more than happy to spend a pretty penny on.

So when September rolls around and LFW is just around the corner, I always look forward to Selfridges initiative: Bright Young Things. The super-department store selects 15 new creative talents in various fields, from womenswear to accessories to food and not only gives them retail space but their own window to showcase their items as well as a t-shirt designed by them to sell in store (retailing at £45 each which makes them the perfect item to snap up pre-London Fashion Week). The lucky 15 this year are:

  • Williams British Homemade (Accessories)
  • Sadie Williams (Womenswear)
  • Alan Taylor (Menswear)
  • Keely Hunter (Millinery)
  • Anna Lomax (Set Design)
  • Eleanor Davies (Art)
  • Clementine Keith-Roach (Set Design)
  • Katy Beveridge (Animation)
  • The Co Project (Accessories)
  • Yeashin (Womenswear)
  • Grace Hamilton (Accessories)
  • Hiroaki Kanai (Menswear)
  • AVM Curiosities (Food)
  • The Poundshop (Collective)
  • Daniel Pollitt (Womenswear)

The collections from these 15 are now available at selfridges.com and in store and the T-shirt collection will be available from 2 September. Make sure you check out the in-store events too. Each one of the Bright Young Things will be hosting an event throughout September-October and there will be some very fun things lined up! From making your own hat to cocktails to scarf printing, just drop the team an email to book your place.
