mystery blonde vs. andrej pejic

Posted in colour, hair, inspiration, model by benperdue on 29/11/2010

Still love a bleached barnet and it holds up well against the onslaught of ombre. Don’t have a credit for the girl but she looks spookily like a certain someone I know who has an auburn thing going on. Andrej comes as no surprise – taken from the latest Arena Homme+.

They had an amazing knit just like this in COS when I was in there last week. Great if you’re a size XL – sold out in everything else. Could have done with it today in London. Brass monkeys!

vintage books, sci-fi and trash

Taking up too much space on my desk – some recent finds from around about. Couple were picked up at Luminous Books down Dalston way, well worth a visit, only open Saturday afternoons.

Interview for the latest Wonderland that I did over the phone with Thom Browne in Paris. He was super nice and professional. Probably more than could be said for me.

Fashion futurism piece I wrote together with my friend Cher Potter in the new 032c. Looking forward to pulling some ideas together for spring/summer. Such a nice magazine to work for.

Flesh tone surgical supports-cum-shapewear can be hard to pull off. No pun intended. More Andrej bromance in the new issue of Candy.

Old favourites, lived in, well loved, what do you call it, etc. If you found that vintage jacket and old Levi’s shirt on a shopping excursion next stop would be Costcutter for a scratch card. Seen at The Ones2Watch.

h tattoo, by liam sparkes

Took this using my chin and as a result the tattoo I just got a couple of hours ago didn’t really come out very well, rings look alright though. H is for Hugo my new nephew/god son.
