Spotting grace near the railway

You see the cracked walls and the rusty fencing, you watch trains coming and going, you hear the uproar broken from time to time by long moments of silence, and then you take it all in: the desolation, the history, all the emotions veiling a place that is at once familiar and so incredibly foreign. And it takes a pair of hungry eyes to spot…

Game on for Candice

While most of us don’t push weights in Hermes accessories and fishtailed Calvin Klein skirts, we’re also bright enough to realise such editorials as this one aren’t meant to be taken too literally. Candice Swanepoel‘s stylish activities range from fencing to tennis, football to baseball, but ultimately it’s a nod to the returning theme of sportswear as fashion – a returning theme that coincides neatly…

Her sparkling personality

There’s a scene in Die Another Day where James Bond fights the villain the old-fashioned way: in a fencing duel. It involves all of the usual elements of the James Bond formula – a girl, a diamond, equal parts action and suspense, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. That scene inspired Akin Abayomi to create Spy Game, a shoot he both styled and…

Jessica Hart: fencing in Gucci

No sooner do I consider re-taking up fencing as a sporting pursuit that the fashion industry immediately jumps on board. Milkshake’s recent issue gave us a taste of fashionable fencing and now Elle Italia has followed suit showing Australian model Jessica Hart coming to grips with the point of the sport (terrible pun, I know) while looking every bit chic in Gucci. Admittedly it’s not…

Fencing fashionably, but not as I know it

In my days of thrusting foil and sabre I can assure you that not once have I encountered female fencers dressed as such. But such is the rise of sports fashion, and such is the break down of traditional boundaries, that such a look mightn’t seem out of place. And if it weren’t, I suspect it would be a far more popular sport.
