High Fashion

There was absolutely no way I could walk past these jewelled slippers, found in a charity shop last week. They set my mind running with ideas for potential shoots...

Edward Burne-Jones' Strong Footwear Game

Details from The Holy Grail Tapestries, 1890-4
Perseus and The Sea Nymphs, 1877
Very on-trend strappy leather sandals, chain mail ankle boots and feathered footwear - say what you like about Edward Burne-Jones but he had excellent taste in shoes.

Patti Pilgrimage // Utrecht

 2019 has started well for travelling - Poland and Holland on consecutive weekends - not bad. I spent a very rainy weekend in Utrecht last month, while on a pilgrimage to see Patti Smith play. I was too excited to take any good photographs of the gig but here is some evidence of it...
We spent a lot of time in cafes sheltering from stormy elements - this felt fitting on a weekend dedicated to a woman who spends a lot of time drinking Nescafe worldwide.

Leathers


Making wearing no trousers look cool... I want everything. Alistair McKimm styles Anok Yai, Adut Akech and Eniola Abioro for I-D magazine last year, shot by Ethan James Green

Collections Pt 1

'Women in Clothes' was a gift from a friend a few years ago, and is an unusual and interesting book with many contributors. It is divided in to sections: photographs, interviews, essays. One thing I enjoy throughout are the photographs of various women's collections of clothing. These include someones capsule collection of raincoats, another of grey sweatshirts, of fedoras.... It's an idea that appeals to me - the compulsion to collect variations of the same thing. Here are some quite bad photographs of my white t-shirts.
