Caroline Issa for LK Bennett

I know I haven’t blogged here in nearly month, which is terrible but I’m nearly finished this semester so I’ll be back soon with street style posts (I’m interning at The Fair magazine for the summer as a streetstyle photographer! ) and maybe some daily outfit posts too, so look out for those!

iPhone cases come in all shapes and sizes (and price ranges!) and I’m forever searching for one that protects the phone but also looks stylish and sophisticated. LK Bennett recently sent me out an iPhone case from their collaboration with Caroline Issa (editor of Tank magazine, if you didn’t know!), which I won through a giveaway Canned Fashion held. I absolutely adore this case. It’s sturdy, it’s made of plastic but it doesn’t feel cheap or like it will break easily; with most of my other covers, they feel like one drop would break them! This case hasn’t gotten a scratch on it since I got it! It doesn’t obstruct the volume button, power button, headphone socket or screen at all, which is a major plus; with other case I’ve found myself having to take the phone out of the case to fully use / see (I’m blind as a bat!) the screen properly. Unfortunately, after much searching, I’m not sure these cases are available to buy. The design is beautiful too, this is definitely an iPhone case I’d want to be seen carrying!

Birthday Girls (photoshoots I’ve loved #18)

Apologies for not posting on Friday, I was mega busy over the weekend and just completely forgot. This week in this series, it’s an editorial from “W” magazine in Korea entitled “Birthday Girls.” Photographed by Hong Jang Hyun, the girls all wear colourful wigs and pastel dresses from Louis Vuitton’s spring 2012 collection. The set designs are reminiscent of Tim Walker or David LeCappelle. (which is probably why I liked this so much!)ImageImageImageImageImageImage

What do you think of this? Is all the colour “too much”?

First fashion photoshoot

Two weeks ago in college, we got to link up with the Fashion Design students and photograph them in the studio. Here are some photos from the day. They’re not my best as I’m only getting properly into studio portraiture now but I’ll post up more photographs as they come! Hope you enjoy.

Let me know in the comments what you think.

Photoshoots I’ve loved #10

 

ImageImageImage

This week on my tenth “photo shoots I’ve loved” post, I’m going to focus on a fashion story shot by Eric Guillemain for Numéro Tokyo May 2012 featuring the pink-haired beauty, Charlotte Free. The shoot is tough but girly and soft-focused at the same time, it emphasises a heavily adorned wardrobe and pink and white are the dominant colours, contrasting and offsetting the gurney, tough pose and makeup.

What do you think about this shoot? Is it too much?

Not much to say about this really. It’s everything a fashion film / look-book film should be: edgy, focused on the models and clothes and color graded to perfection. Watch and be amazed

 

Monday post series #7: photoshoots I’ve loved (Factory Fashion chanls Andy Warhol)

This week its Factory Fashion’s tribute to Andy Warhol. This is amazing. The models are carbon copies of the iconic star. The colourful backgrounds and key lighting emphasise the white wigs that all the models are wearing.

What do you think of these androgynous looks? Did they go “too far”?

Monday post series #6: photoshoots I’ve loved

 

This week it’s Michael Ostermann’s fashion illustrations. These are amazing, they are both disturbing (some models have their mouths sewn shut) and beautiful at the same time. The digital effects Ostermann used contrast with the model and give a surreal look to the photos. A crown of thrones in some photos point to a Christian theme.ImageImageImageImageImage

What do you think of these? Did Ostermann go “too far” when manipulating these?
