Stripes is merely an obsession of mine, and lately I have been eyeing thicker ones. Jacquemus is one who has included the bolder line in his SS15 collection, which is available for almost half the price now.. Dangerous. Anyway, got me thinking of this editorial with Anja Rubik in Self Service Magazine where she is styled by Suzanne Koller and captured by Walter Pfeiffer. Perfect stripes and absolutely love the dress.
“I’ve kept the things that mean a lot to me: a vintage Chanel coat and a Mainbocher coat I bought with Hamish when I was his assistant; a Commes des Garçons dress I bought when I first moved to New York and Grace Coddington took me shopping.”
“An awful lot of it comes down to asking one question: ‘What would a woman wear?’”

Browsing through the Pirrelli archives and found beautiful Ines Sastre for the April calendar of 1997. Stunner, huh? Iconic photographers like Herb Ritts and Richard Avedon has among many other shot the calendar though out the years. Next year, in 2014, Pirelli will celebrate 50 years of its existence.
Photo by Arjan Benning, the master of capturing hues. The photographer works for various advertising agencies, cultural institutions, museums and magazines worldwide. In his work he seeks to find the fine line between authenticity and amazement. His work is staged, and to him “form” figures prominently as part of the content and Benning always strives to ensure that by understanding form, his staged shots seem effortless and natural.
