Fashionising (4)

Via Fashionising a swimsuit editorial shot by Antony Nobilo and styled by Sarah-Jane Cook. Besides being beautifully photographed we like the badass take for a swimsuit shoot, whose themes tend to lean toward a more passive, sultry approach. More on the next page.

Italian Vogue: The A Train

ItalianVogue (9)

Italian Vogue warms the hearts of New York fashionistas with a Steven Meisel shot spread titled “The A Train,” shouting out the city’s ’80s and 90s decadence glory days gone by (not so fun for everyday people not hitting the club scene but that’s another story). And though it references the mighty A train, it looks like large parts of it were shot in MTA’s Transit Museum, which features retired retro trains, complete with old-timey subway ads.

See the rest of the shoot on the next page.

Zora Neale Hurston Via Black Chicks W Freckles

ZoraNealeHurstonBCWF 374x540 Zora Neale Hurston Via Black Chicks W Freckles

One of many things that’s great about blogs is their often joyful presentation and celebration of niche. This image of author-great Zora Neale Hurston (check out what an obvs badass she was!) comes from a blog called Black Chicks With Freckles, which features a combination of images culled from the web, plus readers’ own submissions. There is also the occassional commentary, including this:

“I seriously used to cringe when people described me, using my freckles as an undeniable way to identify me. It seemed so predictable.. Besides there’s much more to me than the freckles on my face. …Or so I thought. Now that I’m older I’ve realized there absolutely isn’t. Every aspect of my life, personality, and spirit can be closely aligned with these unique ‘sun kisses’ that grace my face.”

‘Don’t Call Me Urban’ By Simon Wheatley

DontCallMeUrban Dont Call Me Urban By Simon Wheatley

In a recently-published book titled “Don’t Call Me Urban,” photographer Simon Wheatley documents London’s Grime scene over a period of about ten years. Vice magazine follows-up with him and digs down a bit on the style worn by the people he photographed. Interestingly, Wheatley wasn’t impressed:

“I’m disappointed with what I saw of grime as fashion, it wasn’t very imaginative. That’s what I’ve always referred to when people compare grime to punk—punk was really something daring, whereas grime was very conformist, really. Not just in the sense of the sports corporations who’d give out their stuff to the main crews, but also most of the ‘designers’ who churn out t-shirts and hoodies with varying slogans or patterns. What about mixing it up a bit, you know? I’d like to see some proper African dress and stuff like that, rather than slavishly following the fashion code that came out of the United States.”

We posted up an image of Francis Bean Cobain by Hedi Slimane  last night and mentioned the set was followed by pics of the late Amy Winehouse….so what the heck, here’s one of her, too. I must say, this passing was sad to me. Don’t know why it is, but the truth-tellers always seem to go quick.
