All these painfully cool people we're getting to see beautifully photographed these days on the interweb, it's enough to make me never want to leave my basement flat in my rubbish clothes. I never thought I'd say this, but I really really want my tiniest possessions fetishized and photographed and held up as the last word in cool.
The good thing is you could build a whole collection on these amazing shots. It doesn't replace getting outside, reading books and doing research but there are so many incredible images everywhere you look.

It's been getting pretty wintery around her recently as I try and wrench my mind towards future seasons. However, I've been thinking more about light and texture than ever before as we plan photoshoots, and hazy spectrums of sun plus vintage broderie plus white denim never gets old.

I'm not immune to all the Celine furor. I love classic things and I loved Pheobe Philo's stuff at Chloe and I think I love the things from Celine more. And I love these bright blue denims with blush, caramel and tan. Neil Young again I'm sure.
Pretty sure all of these images are from Jak&Jil.
From Oyster Magazine, October 08. I've been pondering something I read a while ago that Jonny Johansson from Acne said about Neil Young being the inspiration for his SS2010 collection. Surely Neil Young is one of the inspirations for any denim collection, Jonny? It's really nice when you're taste is reinforced by someone who does great things, but I kind of want my things to be mine, and not co-opted for Spring Summer 10. I'm not a sharer.

All these very stylish people wandering around in double denim and camel coats look very authentic and fashionable, but sometimes there's nothing better than a great pair of jeans, and these look amazing. MiH Jeans 'Roadtrip' style if I'm not very much mistaken. Perfectly lit picture from Garance Dore.

I keep seeing these images, mainly from Chloe AW10 but also from all the street style photographers and bloggers, that remind me of Brian Duffy photographs from the late 1970's. Scale, volume and colour were so different, and so much softer - at once more covered up but so much more open and less aggressive. The strong simple details are beautiful.
The Chloe AW10 images are from the Love Magazine blog, and the girl in the black jeans & Ferragamo jumper is a photo by Garance Dore. The Brian Duffy photo is from French Elle from 1979.

So I have pictured some lacing before, not least from the Erin Wasson x RVCA jeans, and certainly some patching. It seems it's not a real jeans collection unless some eager beaver patches together old jeans from the brand's archives and charges $1000 for it. But there's something so great and 1970's about these, and I love the combination of really tarty and really elegant that this encapsulations. It's like Chloe meets Two Lane Blacktop.

I'm sure you all read The Selvedge Yard and bathe in the vintage images, but these by Michael Cooper are keepers. Google tells me that he's the photographer on whom Blowup was based. The photographs are of Gram Parsons, Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg at Joshua Tree National Monument in 1969. It also tells me that Gram & Keith became enamored with Joshua Tree. The two would disappear in the desert for days, searching for UFOs while under the influence of psilocybin or LSD. Very lifestyle. As are the Southwestern blankets. Definitely the mood for now.
