Karlie Kloss sans classic beauty

I’ll never forget the ‘haircut’. It was high school and all the girls were cutting their hair into chin length bobs. Overnight, the three years I had spent growing out my hair meant nothing. Breathless from excitement, I hurled myself into the stylist’s chair, a pile of magazine tears in my lap. The following week was spent strutting around school flipping my hair to a…

Aymeline Valade twists

French Model and face of Alexander Wang’s first print campaign, Aymeline Valade puts a twist on the classics. Not only does she couple preppy layering with a motorcycle jacket, but forgoes the standard white collar for a denim button up, achieving a fresh take on tomboyish elegance.

Friendship Cuff: daily discovery

The friendship bracelet of yesteryear gets a grown up twist with Kris Nation’s Friendship Cuff and in the process, finds in me a die-hard fan. The cuff itself is hand formed and hammered while the silk fabric is a more sophisticated reminiscence of childhood friendships and first crushes. Part whimsy, part modernity, you can choose from recycled silver or 14k gold-filled metals and options of…

Eighteenth: muted tones of obsession

When there is a heavy emphasis on neutral tones, much responsibility of a garment is left to the silhouette of a design. Designer Alexa Galler does just that with her clothing line, Eighteenth. Emphasising the asymmetric and ingeniously fusing the avant-garde with the pleasing aesthetics of basics, each piece has its own unique shape and deliberate structure, all the while remaining effortlessly casual. Case in…
