    A new Girly essay by Liberty McAnena

    Our Girly project continues! Read Lost Girls, an evocative new essay by writer and researcher Liberty McAnena. Focusing on the ubiquitous trope of the 'Lost Girl' so often seen in Tim Walker shoots and the pages of Lula, McAnena explores the unwavering appeal of this ambiguous character. Citing her influence on designers such as John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, McAnena deconstructs the fantasy the 'Lost Girl' embodies.

    'She represents fantasy in a way that few other fashion tropes do - whilst jetsetters with Louis Vuitton luggage and couture-clad brides are not 'realistic' per se, they do have an aspirational quality…The 'Lost Gir'l is at odds with this idea of 'having it all.' She doesn’t seem to have anything.'

    In addition to this great read, stay tuned for more Girly content coming soon, including an essay on Meadham Kirchhoff’s whimsical Spring/Summer 2013 collection Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.

    Inge Grognard

    Iconic make-up artist Inge Grognard lent her skilled hand to our shoot for Rika magazine with model Codie Young. I came across Inge's work though her memorable collaborations with Maison Martin Margiela and Walter Van Beirendonck. As well as her work with photographer and partner Ronald Stoops.

    Using unconventional materials such as feathers, tape and tinfoil Inge created the image of a 'white wanderer'. Inge comments, 'For me a wanderer picks up things he likes on his way, like the tape, feathers etc... and those were my tools to create those looks.'

    Jez Tozer's new fashion film features Omer Asim's S/S 15 collection

    Photographer Jez Tozer and London-based Sudanese designer Omer Asim have teamed up for the second time to create a new fashion film! We're very proud to launch Zar.
     
    Following the pair's previous collaboration, Put Out the Lights and Call the Law, Tozer's new film showcases a piece from Asim’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The designer is known for his architectural but primal approach to fashion, with a strong focus on shapes and cuts, which Tozer has exhibited with a minimal film that depicts the dress in movement. Following on from Asim's inspiration for S/S 15, Tozer's film explores the story of Zar - an ancient Sudanese underground trance sub-culture dealing with trauma, hysteria and relief. The film features the performance artist Millie Brown, a long-time collaborator of Tozer. Watch the hypnotic film now.

While Chatterton cites nineties references, young London designers and the difference between dressing for yourself and dressing for men 'I feel like it's completely not for men. If they like me then they like me, but I just think about my own style.'
