My work in Vogue Homme Japan

Last week I went to Colette looking for Vogue Homme Japan, some of the pieces from my degree collection had been requested a couple of months back for a Vogue Homme Japan photo shoot. It was a great sensation and really exciting to see the final result. This is the first published image of my work. Earlier this month some of my portfolio work was part of a television program about fashion and I am still waiting for some more work to be published in other magazines. There is nothing better than to feel that people are interested in your work and are actually inspired by it. It is great to see how they can explore what you created and have different points of view. This particular photograph was taken by David Benjamin Sherry and styled by Robbie Spencer from Dazed & Confused.

Encens Magazine

Some spreads for a couple of issues of Encens magazine. It comes out twice a year, I had never really looked at it untill I bought the last issue dedicated to the world of Dries Van Noten last saturday. It has a great layout and the photo shoots are styled mainly with vintage pieces. It looks like a magazine from another era but at the same time really current. I am a bit obsessed with it and it’s aesthetics.

Saturday morning

This Saturday morning I decided to leave the comfort of my bed to try and explore some areas of Paris. I had a list of places to go, went to all of them but did it in quite a random way. I left the house wanting to go to Merci, one of the concept stores in Paris to see what they offered in terms of fashion and furniture. The store is lovely, from the little café filled with bookshelves to the florist on the opposite site it is perfectly designed, smells wonderful and is appealing for the eye. Low points, the prices for one, completely out of my range and the fact that I could not really take any pictures inside the two floors of the shop. After Merci I basically walked and found a street filled with little art galleries, including an exhibition of Georgina’s Goodman shoes. At the end of the street I photographed this little restaurant “Cuisine du Marché”, it looking very warm and cosy, the food is all fresh and made with products from the market available on the day. On Rue de Turenne I found the shop of Laurent Guillot, a jewellery designer that makes his pieces in perspex and gold and silver leaf, saw some very interesting massive rings and a great statement necklace. Continued into the Marais always on foot exploring the surroundings and Agora appeared in front of me, a nice bookstore that is able to provide for all my needs of fashion and design magazines and really close to it is BHV, the big department store I had seen a couple of years ago and that has all the materials I may possible require. My final stop this morning involved taking the metro to Léna, my destiny was Palais de Tokyo, unfortunately they were between exhibitions so the only thing I got to see was their bookstore and Blackblock, the little store with objects inside fridges and little gadgets everywhere. It ende up being a productive morning, beginning of afternoon.

Less is more, I would love to have at least half of these pairs os shoes in my closet. They are simple yet complex, great heels, I guess if you chance one component enough you can afford to keep everything else clean and understated. The range of colours and pattern as well as the choice of buckles and metal details make these shoes extremely wearable and able to carry you in every situation. I particularly like the architecture of the heels and how that was transposed from high heels to low heels.
