The November issue of Numéro is a celebration of diverse photography styles, featuring some of the most talented models working today. Let’s break it down! Impossible limbstress Anna Cleveland contorts for Greg Kadel in a shoot that’s a romantic mix of stark black and white images with autumn grazing-in-the-grass photos; Alisa Ahmann stars in a perfectly saturated 60s retro series for Laurie Bartley; Soo Joo Park & Giedre Kiaulenaite are featured in a Hong Janghyun editorial that’s so gritty and gorgeous that I want to memorize every detail; and the positively enchanting Hana Jirickova is shot by Hans Feurer in a shoot that, when I saw a thumbnail of one of the images, I thought was a retro image of Kate Moss. Delicious fashion treats! Grab a copy of this! There’s too much goodness to not own!

London Fashion Week S/S 2016 – Ashish and Philipp Plein

London Fashion Week is, for me, the most underwhelming of all the fashion weeks.  I know that there are some strong, big names that show collections, but because the bland sameness of Burberry and the like do little for me, there is very little that registers as new and exciting.   Two brands who I always can count on showing something wearable, daring and fun are Ashish and Philipp Plein.  Ashish is responsible for those rainbow sequined ripped jeans that were so popular last year as well as helping to make the creeper shoe popular again.  There is always a positivity to the creativeness at Ashish, and embracing diversity and uniqueness with a joyful openness.  This season was no different, blurring gender norms and literally covering the models in multicolored confetti, making the show feel like being at an awesome birthday party.  Philipp Plein is a weakness of mine – I know that it’s a little one note, but as a recovering goth, I respond to the punky couture-ness of it all.
