I've just returned from London and quite naturally, I had the greatest summer of my life. 6 weeks in what most were saying was London's hottest summer in years. Love to my friends that side, old and new. I'll be back soon.
I have to thank Susie Bubble for these images. I was so taken aback (read confronted with true love) when I saw these clothes and photos, that I had to put them up here too. Beautiful photos featuring designs from a woman called Anne-Marie Beretta who was very successful in the 80s. Not much else to find about her unfortunately, but I'm intrigued nonetheless.
I have a new-found love for this Mancunian duo, previously known (and loved) by the name "Daggers". They've since changed their look, line-up and sound (to an extent) and it works. They also have that Roxy Music-new wave thing going on and they are pretty much the poster boys of the Hedi Slimane thin-boy-in-a-band-with-nice-clothes thing.
The following are photos from Dazed & Confused's April issue and Hedi Slimane's session with the boys, as well as their brand new video for "Better Than Love" (which is an old Daggers track I remember being emailed to me by the band themselves! That is if I remember correctly. They sent 2 tracks, I forget which.)
Originally conceived as the first street fashion blog in Johannesburg, The blog has since evolved and moved into another direction, as do all things. Its a mish-mash of things that excite and inspire me and will continue to serve as my own visual diary.
