Marking Day - TAILORING

Brief: design a 3 piece tailored outfit using a major or minor greyscale colour palette, and influenced by both an organic structure and a modern object.


This is a picture of the shirt before it was finished, but it gives you a slightly better view of what's going on. Hope you enjoy!

Every time I see interior design spreads of beautiful minimalistic homes (and lets face it, they're almost always minimal), I feel a sense of awe and unattainability. For as much as I admire these perfect white abodes, they're just not me. I'm a hoarder through and through, I get attached to old "stuff", and I can't seem to enter and leave a room without it looking significantly more messy afterwards.

When I saw the following interior shots on photographer Douglas Friedman's website I had my first "I could totally achieve that" interior design moment.

I love that it kind of feels like a museum - albeit a very accessible one. The pops of red on the wooden trims, and the turquoise ceiling are fun, kitsch and welcoming - a pleasant change from the often austere, stark white places which are so often featured. I can't wait to move out of a rented apartment so i can work my magic on my own space!


To me, Francoise Hardy embodies the notion of "effortlessly cool" style.

And her music is awesome too. If you're looking for an introduction, Vol. 1 (1962-1968) is a pretty good starting point. I have a particular soft spot for the track "voila" at the moment - such a beautiful melody - the chorus gives me goosebumps.

Fisherman Chronicles, Part 1

A fun little street wear range i had to design for class. Just a few of the looks from it.

And these are the "key stories" - the fisherman, gansey, creel and print story respectively.

I was surprised by how much i enjoyed designing a streetwear range, maybe it's my calling.

Yohji Yamamoto Fall 1988

Blumarine Spring 1986 Campaign

It blows my mind to think this campaign was shot 24 years ago. That's almost a quarter of a century!!! I would wear the last look in a flash, i wouldn't even try to change anything.

The Crack Fox for Topshop Unique

Surely i'm not the only one who has noticed the disturbing similarity? I couldn't even tell you what the clothes in the collection were like, i was so distracted by the crack fox eyebrows.

"Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it" - Greta Garbo

This dress of Greta Garbo's is just amazing. That sculpted collar is too good, and the embellishment!!! I'm starting develop more of an appreciation for evening wear. It's something i've tended to find a bit too saccharine for myself, But there is something so perfect about this. I just watched Ninotchka, hence the new found appreciation for Greta Garbo. Check out this amazing hat she wears in the film. Where can i get one?

Oh Olivier...

Knowing I'll never get to wear this jumper from Nina Ricci Fall 2007 makes me so incredibly sad.
