Patch Your Denim....

Get that old Levi's jacket you have lying around from the 90's and pimp it out with crazy patches and studs.

Let's go Skiing............

Hell, I know it's summer but this awful weather has me inside thinking of warm clothes. Tsumori Chisato's Fall' 12 collection was inspired by her holiday snaps of the Swiss Alps. Featuring beautiful  inartia knits with sequined designs of cable cars and ski's, soft Mongolian furs, amazing jeans and dresses with silk screen printed images of chalets and ski slopes that had a little punky checkerboard thrown in for good measure. It's exactly what I would want to wear apres ski. I love the detail ......

Cover Me In Tapestry .....

Inge Jacobsen alters images from fashion magazines, porno mags and newspapers using embroidery, weaving, collaging and cutting. She has worked with Vogue covers and altered images of Alice Dellal and Leah Weller.
In her own words she explains her work:
With the over saturation of images, my practice seeks to intervene in this overwhelming consumption from the mass produced and alter it to create something unique.
And  this she does creating pieces with depth and layer that lift of the page. Beautiful.

Claire Barrow painted leather ...

Claire Barrow started to experiment with painting leather jackets whilst on a year out from fashion college, where she was spending most of her time hanging out in her flat watching cult movies. Her first was of white clouds on a sky blue background (my favourite) painted on a leather jacket bought by her in a charity shop. The design she confesses may have been a subconscious optimism at the time.

Joseph Collaboration

 One worn on Rihanna's Loud Tour

Her designs since then have been inspired by gang tattoos, tribal designs, care bears and many other wierd and wonderful subculture references. Her work is so distinct that it was picked up by none other than RiRi herself when she wore two jackets on her Loud tour and one on an album cover. With such a famous fan her career has catapulted. So much so Joseph are now doing a collaboration in which Claire says she would like to keep as much of her personal touch as possible. Returning to the University of Westminster she will graduate from fashion design this year and I'm excited to see more amazing things from this talented artist. It's people like her that keep me loving fashion. Check out her website Claire Barrow and her Tumblr TheMilkofDanzig.

Indian Summer.....

Add a little Indian inspiration to your summer wardrobe. Wear jewel coloured shoes like the lovely Acne Alice's, make turbans with vintage scarves you may have lying about and decorate yourself with elaborate costume jewels like in Givenchy.
