Some of you have been pointing it out and on this occasion of a press mention, I really was taken by surprise.  Yup, in Style Bubble along with other deserving bloggers – Garance, Rumi, Jane and Arabelle (such is the fame in their names that I need use last names…) got mentioned in the latest issue of British Vogue… and my mug was in a Who What Wore feature, rounding up the trends of London Fashion Week streetstyle – I apparently fall into the MASH-UP and PUNKANOVA categories…I've yet to define what those words mean but I THINK I more or less agree…

Anyhow the feature in the issue that sent me on a mass Google chase was the My Inspiration piece, enlisting a ton of fashion biggies to show and tell all about their one single inspiration image.  Designer Roksanda Ilincic chose a Serge Lutens Shiseido ad from the 80s' which gave me enough image-tempting incentive to trawl Blitz Kids and TFS for a mass Lutens overload.  Can't get enough of the half photograph, half painterly femmes with mysterious eyes and sheathed in perfect maquillage…

    I saw that feature, congrats 🙂
    “Punkanova” is definitely an… interesting way to describe a style. Maybe it’s something between punk and galactical?

    Wow I LOVE those ads! Graphic yet mysterious, and so different from the ads I see nowadays. I’ll be checking them out for sure.

    Oh wow..though honestly, the mention should have happened YEARS ago, but it’s still brilliant. As are those images- femme fatale rocking the maquillage is not something I can hope to be, but it’s still so good to look at..

    last photo reminds of Ava Adore Smashing Pumpkins cover albums….it’s pretty gothic and mystery.

    You are so lucky to get your photo taken and published by so many people. I would love to go to some of these places where stylish people hang out.

    Beautiful pictures! And now, Serge Lutens has an over-priced make-up line at Barneys. I bought a lipstick, Just Because.

  17. i love that punkanova word.
    i met that photographer [wasn’t he a photographer/makeup artist?] on a go-see in the early 90s. i didn’t make the cut!
