Love! Want!

Love! Want!

>> I'm a bit late in the game on many accounts and I'm beginning to think I've developed some kind of slow time lapse syndrome.  I've only JUST started to catch bits of The Rachel Zoe Project which has been amusing me immensely.  I've only JUST learnt that everyone 'dying' over fashion (I DIE I DIE I DIE) is apparently because of her.  I've also only just caught wind of something a bit more healthy and creative than the aforementioned TV bollocks… Love Want, a fashion zine pet project devised by super Aussie stylist Imogene Barron and photographer Bec Parsons.  Yes, it's another title involving the word Love.  Oh well, it is of course a lot better than the millions of people that are apparently DYING over fashion so I guess I should be grateful for the positive note of the title.  It's literally a zine containing nothing but beautiful images that Imogene and Bec shot together.  I've cheekily requested a copy but gather that issue One which launched back in April is now sold out.  According to Bec's blog though, a second one will soon be on its way so hopefully I won't miss the boat this time.  I like that there's no lofty ambitions in terms of making it into a (quote fingers) "publication" or an "enterprise".  It's literally just a self-published creation that goes a bit beyond newspaper print zines and is entirely reflective of two people's worlds…

If any of you do have a copy, have a sniff of the paper and let me know if it smells nice…

    Ha-ha, I do love the Rachel Zoe Project, but I’m trying really hard to NOT talk like her!

    Hey, I didn’t know “I Die” is hers. 😀 No wonder you have not been saying “you die” here on your blog.

    When Rachel Zoe says I DIE, it makes me die a little inside. It¬¥s a fun program though besides her catch frases… Love the pictures Susie!

    The images are beautiful, but–and you call it far-fetched–the cheeky text juxtaposed with glamour shots eerily reminds me of Donny Miller’s work ( ).

    I love her assistants–it’s a fun show.. And that cake icing chiffon is very attractive to me.
