The thing that has always struck me about Pepper and Pistol's lookbooks and collections is how UN-New York-ified they are, the way they really stick to their guns when they're going with a theme be it circus (A/W 09), tropical (S/S 09) or under the sea (A/W 08).  German-born duo Silvia Hillman's fashion background and Katrin Wiens' graphic experience collide together in collections that exploit literal images whilst keeping it fun.  This A/W 09 Fashion of Clowning lookbook has done the online rounds a bit but I did want to post it to commend Pepper and Pistol for sticking out in the NY fashion scene and also because the lookbook has a stunning look to it.

    Oh wow! Loving the first top especially… The model’s a kind of Marnie-meets-Marilyn figure. Gorgeous!
    Thanks for the comment 😀 – the area’s not as good for shops as it used to be, but it’ll always be home… Any idea how to stop the map de-centre-ing?
