The story of The Denim Surgeon

When is a designer not a designer? The answer to this seeming riddle comes not in the form of words, but in the form of a person. A person whose uncommon approach to design earned him the moniker of le chirurgien du jean (‘the denim surgeon‘). Pierre Morriset, head designer at G-Star RAW, is...

11 steps to a perfect DIY manicure

Confession time: indulging in weekly manicures is too harsh for the wallet. A lot of you might resonate with the above statement. Wouldn’t you rather spend the weekly money on a dress from a luxurious fashion house or a pair of red-soled heels? Excluding convenience and pampering, there’s very little justification for spending the...

Shoe porn of the day from Jimmy Choo: weekend watch

Despite being photographed by Terry Richardson there’s no actual porn here, but still – silver sequinned stilettos and embroidered lace-up boots are likely to be catnip to the Jimmy Choo fan. Featuring Querelle Jansen and Jonas Kesseler, the brand’s fall 2012 print campaign is accompanied by a similarly boho-glam infused video. You can view...

Zippora Seven, diamonds and Walt Witman: weekend watch

Precious jewels are often advertised with aspirational imagery of sweeping gowns and red carpets. What makes this video, produced by creative studio Special Problems, particularly good is that it makes no mention of the product it’s advertising.

Jamie Bochert could use some colour for Chanel couture

Though much of Chanel’s couture collection involved grey or black boucle, it still feels like Karl Lagerfeld’s look book images would have benefited from some colour.

Removable chains: street style

I probably need not preach the value of accessories in raising up an outfit. A simple tee and pair of jeans isn’t really an outfit until you accessorise, so the question is more what to add. A detachable collar is one of the year’s most versatile accessories, the kind of thing you can add...

Nude and tattooed: floral skin as fashion

Paris-based photographer Pauline Darley is a little bit fearless when it comes to subject matter. Her latest shoot centers on nudity, tattoo art and heels – with little but a pair of high-waisted bloomers, an intricately beaded jacket, and a cupless corset making up at the fashion component, as styled by Charlotte Laplace. That’s...
