Here is the new KRISVANASSCHE  Spring/Summer 2014 campaign shot by Alessio Bolzoni. The perspective and angle of this shoot is so refreshing, and it’s good to know there are labels like Kris Van Assche’s that are willing to forgo head to toe garment visibility for a more creative end result. It helps that the collection is something special too!

I’m working with some wonderfully talented Melbournian ladies on a new piece of theatre at the moment, and as part of the creative development of the piece, each week we are given provocations to respond to. This is my response to this weeks provocation.

on NARS and Guy Bourdin

NARS has released a rather fantastic ‘Holiday Collection’ for 2013 inspired by Founder and Creative Director Francois Nars love of Bourdin’s work and aesthetic. A fabulous, and very desirable collection in impeccable packaging.

Quick snaps of party products that were in the studio today. 

on lovely things

The Swaine Adeney Top Zip Wet Pack from Sterling and Burke. Made from English Bridle Hide with brass hardware. A classic example of from following function beautifully with a quality build to last a lifetime. 

The Merchant Fox  Solid Silver and Horn Comb. Made in Lancashire from natural horn, ethically sourced, with the silver edge hand applied by a master silversmith. Sadly the gorgeous simplicity of this piece betrays its luxury price tag. 

Human Tooth and Sterling Silver ring from Van Der Glas. Each ring is made from donated teeth, or if you prefer, you may provide your own teeth upon commission for an added discount. I’ve always had a strange fascination with human teeth and the thought of having one beautifully set in a ring, appeals greatly. A brave design from Van Der Glas, but she’s certainly won me over. 

Acne Star ancle boots from Acne with stacked leather heel. These have a beautiful silhouette, look stable enough to dance in, and are all in all a neat little package. I wish it were still winter.

The 2012 Look Book for cycling company Csepel Royal.

Bright, bold, ridiculously colourful and guaranteed to make the brand stand out amongst competitors. No word on who the AD or photographer were, but whoever you are, nicely played.
