On a sunny April afternoon, accessorised with her puppy Ron and a floor length netted skirt, Sophia looked the business all in black. Wearing a Public Beware skirt over Public Beware shorts with an Urban Outfitters cutaway t-shirt.
During an afternoon at Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto’s exhibition in the Victoria and Albert museum I was treated to some stunning garments, not just in Yamamoto’s collection, but also on some rather well turned out museum visitors. Pace and his pal Hsiang let me have a quick snap of them outside the exhibition. I was particularly struck by Hsiang’s fantastic black and cream chunky platforms, ever so slightly reminiscent of morris dancing shoes.
Andy Bumpus’s street style fashion illustrations
Illustrator and photographer Andy Bumpus offers his take on some of the Nicely Turned Out muses. His colourful linear portraits, ever so slightly haunting with no facial outline or features except for the subjects mouth, provide a unique style of fashion illustration. He recently produced show report illustrations for Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s catwalk shows over S/S London Fashion Week, which have been featured on Vogue.com and Amelia’s Magazine.
Pick Me Up at Somerset House. Artist Seiko Kato and Ian Emes with their London street style fashion. Agnes B, Cos, Reiss, American Retro and Ca4la.
Whilst on the look out for some illustration inspiration at Pick Me Up graphic arts fair in Somerset House I admired the work of artist Seiko Kato who happened to be hanging out next to her mesmerising collages with her companion Ian Emes. Not only is this lady super talented (and nice), she also has great classic style. She had on a Cos dress, cute victorian lace-up boots and a hat by Japanese miliner Ca4la. Ian was wearing an Agnes B shirt, coat from Reiss and a hat from American Retro.
