Admittedly, the fashion weeks of the world are not something we follow super closely and yet, sometimes something really catches our eye and imagination. From Paris, the Jacquemus “The child of the sun” or “L’enfant du soleil” collection won our heart. We want to play the Jacquemus way.
We’re always in awe of what Alicia Hannah Naomi pulls off aesthetically in her line and photographically in her campaigns… It’s such an elevated and cohesive representation of her as a designer and the use of fine metals, organic shapes and sharp forms.
It’s no surprise this latest campaign was shot by one of our favorite Australian photographers Stephanie Cammarano who also shoots for Hopeless Lingerie and was featured in our first edition of Ledger Magazine.
Alicia on her new collection:
In response to corporeal relationships and visceral sensuality, the 2015 collection features raw textures with a primal tactility. The desire for human contact is communicated through sculpted surface treatments and undulation that culminates in sharp detail. Interlocking elements delineate our common need for intimacy, while the shadowy blackening of the precious metals amplify the brutality associated with lust.
Enjoy. See more here.
Inspiration pulled as we slip into that indian summer… The last exhale before the hustle, bustle, knits and heavenly layers of fall begin. How are you spending your last moments?

Charlotte. It’s her hair and ease, the way she wears sweaters and the fact that we just saw Nymphomaniac Volumes I and II. She reminds us of someone we have met before but maybe it’s just the touch of melancholy that is so familiar and enigmatic…
Elizabeth Rudge is the genesis of Rad Gals. The photographer, team builder and creative extraordinaire conceptualized the Craft & Culture project and brought it to fruition through her lens and spark. I had the chance to interview Elizabeth recently on her past year, what it means to be a photographer in this age and the truths she will always hold close. The timing is perfect as Elizabeth gets ready to launch the next incarnation of Rad Gals to be released in Issue III of Ledger Magazine.
