Gypsum October look book: Casablanca Royale

Gypsum’s October 2014 look book goes by the name of Casablanca Royale – which aught to tell you a lot, if the brand’s penchant for exotic neo-bohemianism didn’t already. In a setting of plush Moroccan carpets, the look book features patterned babydoll dresses, lace slips and bustling furs – all complimented by on trend jewellery and exotic makeup.

Backstage at ModaLisboa, spring 2015

It was a good day to be backstage. For one, Nuno Gama’s epic closing show was to include 80 male models, most of whom were milling about waiting for their call time. I was hardly going to complain about that. Secondly, Valentim Quaresma’s unique creations – intricate pieces of body jewellery made from clips and skulls and other curiosities – were being adorned onto bodies…

The wild one and the perfect island

You can almost taste it, the freedom, the boldness, the sweet abandon to nature, just as you witness it fitting into the perfect island decor, and you sense it endlessly running its course through the veins of the wild ones. Queen, warrior, free spirit, Nayiver Palacio morphs into all that and more, as beautifully lensed by Nuria Rincon in the middle of a secret paradise.

Mr Kate “The Elsie” collection look book

Rather than sticking purely to the mystical influences defining fall 2014’s jewellery trends, designer Kate Albrecht went all the way back to the Edwardian period for her latest collection. Inspired by Lily Elsie, an Edwardian era actress, the collection features matte metals alongside sparkling crystals. One particularly unusual piece is an eye patch that can also be worn as a headpiece or necklace.

What’s not to love? A novel trend, perfectly presented

“What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a…

Striped: Luis Borges off duty at ModaLisboa

I first shot Luis Borges at last season’s ModaLisboa, standing out from the crowd courtesy his unique sense of personal style. The same could be said for Luis yesterday at day 1 of the Lisbon fashion week’s spring 2015 edition. Bold stripes, oversized cuts and a hint of gold jewellery were all so right for that modelesque face and cool fuzz of black hair.
