It's here! Sunshine, in the 80s.. must be summer! It's not gonna last, apparently - UK will cool off again at 'the end of the week' so must grab every moment. Gather yee rosebuds, etc.
I'm playing around with photoshop again - collaging onto designers' collections - but first I'm showing you some of my photographic ingredients. David Koma's lovely white dress from his S/S 2010 show (one of my favourite shows btw), a shot of me in Ben's girlfriend Lisa's pool, shot by my one of my closest friends since we travelled Europe together during college - Maryann - last summer, and last but not least, me and my niece Scarlett, on the rooftop pool at the Gainsvoort Hotel, NYC, enough summers ago that no one should mind me showing the photos: she is a totally different, more grown up girl now. Unrecognisable. I remember that day, she was doing my nails and I admired what a good job she was doing (she was like, 5), and she just took the compliment in her stride and said 'Yes, I know. It's a gift.'
Notice the little star tattoo on the runway model? I'm not one for tattoos, generally, but that one, where it is... so cool. Good for the make up artists, for not covering it up. Or maybe it IS makeup - thus, intentional.
Must run. Will start the series later. Wishing you a beautiful Monday, wherever in the world you are. xox
