5 Things to inspire your inner fashion-lover this week
1. Leo Greenfield’s illustrations of fashion week. Leo Greenfield is one of the coolest illustrators out there, he recently drew his impressions of the Vogue Australia team in their latest issue, and now he has taken to depicting the sights and sounds of Paris Fashion Week in a new series. The illustrations are beautiful and at times brutal representations of the industry that we all hate to love and love to hate, and they will definitely give you your daily dose of inspiration.
2. Aussie label Skin and Threads launched a collaboration with Craig and Karl, an ex-pat graphic design duo, under their SS13/14 collection, ‘Like a Tiger’. The project features an awesome pixelated tiger illustration printed on awesome tees and sweatshirts in a variety of colours, including oat, white and my personal favourite: hot pink. Check out the new threads, which will be dropping at Skin and Threats George Street store soon.
3. Ok so as if Gwen Stefani isn’t cool enough, she’s literally the worlds biggest MILF, she can still rock platinum hair and abs and she pioneered softcore punk, space buns and bindis before any of you Tumblr teens did. But she’s truly out-cooled herself, this week launching a collaborative nail polish range with OPI. The names include ‘Love. Angel. Music. Baby’, ‘Push and Shove’ and ‘Over & Over A-Gwen’ and include semi-matte satin finishes, mirrored chrome looks and a totally luxe nail kit features Swarovski crystals and studs.
4. Versus, sister brand of Versace, have teamed up with Superbowl bashing babe M.I.A to launch a collection that aims to base its looks on counterfeited Versace bags. M.I.A who is an embodiment of super-cool street style was the perfect fit for Donatella Versace, who believed the rap artist would be perfect for helping create the line which is aimed at highlighting the issue of counterfeiting, going by the old mantra ‘if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em’. The collection will be available from the 16th of October in menswear and womenswear.
5. Fans of all things British rejoice because two of Britains most wonderful fashion products have re-kindled. That’s right, Kate Moss is back with Topshop. The model and pioneer of heroine chic worked with the label from May 2007 to November 2010, then left for a few years. Apparently Moss and Topshop owner Sir Philip Green were holidaying together recently when they decided to rejoin forces, with Moss currently designing the line which will be on shelves in April next year.
