Katherine Hooker

the second i saw this first look by katherine hooker i thought out of africa – which is kind of appropriate since katherine was born to american parents in cyprus, raised in north africa and moved to england at the age of 9.  she creates timeless handmade pieces using only the very best tweeds for winter and silks and linens for summer. pieces can be custom made or bought from her ready-to-wear range.

jane birkin

she’s one of those swinging sixties, between london & paris, don’t really know what she did / does (acting? singing? modelling?), gets naked a lot (but in that sixties way) vintage babes - with a handbag named after her. herewith follows some photos, just because she’s cool. some are slightly nsfw (as she enjoys the nude, respect).
