Lauren Hutton

my friend Amy and i were sitting around gabbing the other day, browsing pinterest (which is the new looking through magazines together, i guess) and we got onto the topic of Lauren Hutton. i couldn’t quite believe that i hadn’t done a post on her yet, especially since i’ve covered some other favourite style icons, like Anjelica for example.

i have never been able to decide which Lauren is my favourite – Safari Lauren, Tomboy Lauren, glamorous Model Lauren, showing the kids how it’s done Lauren… either way, her infectious personality (and smile) always take center stage no matter what she’s doing.

i scoured the web to find my favourite Lauren Hutton pics – a lot of these are from Pinterest and Tumblr, as well as sites like The Fashion Spot, Ciao Vogue and the Life Magazine Archives. this one is for you, Amy.

Josh Brolin for Band of Outsiders

Band of Outsiders is well known for their range of lookbooks featuring celebrities shot on polaroid. Kirsten Dunst is a regular model, as is Jason Schwartzmann. i like the latest one with Josh Brolin because he’s not your typical indie darling… and he looks good as a cowboy.

Double RL, Double take

just when you think that you couldn’t possibly look at another vintage inspired lookbook, along comes one that could actually fool you into thinking the photos are legit – until you take a closer look.  i was almost fooled at first glance by this set of photos while browsing Lincoln Taft’s blog. this is the new lookbook  for Ralph Lauren’s RRL label.

RRL was first introduced in 1993 as a collection of meticulously aged and rugged looking menswear inspired by the pioneering spirit of the American West. Vintage selvedge denims, sumptuous flannel shirts, beautifully battered leathers and utilitarian styles which evoke images of hard-grafting ranch hands and tough-talking blue-collar workers are all thrown into the mix in a collection that is named after Double RL, the Colorado ranch owned by Ricky and Ralph Lauren. - source

Escher & Menswear

i tend to forget that Escher actually did other work besides drawing hands and relativity. his tessellation designs are quite beautiful – i’ve been wanting to pair them with something interesting for some time now.

well i don’t know about you guys, but the street style that’s been snapped at the recent menswear shows in milan and paris have been more fascinating to me than anything else fashion related in recent weeks. the men in particular are so striking and daring in their outfit choices and sartorial combinations (though of course not “daring” at all in fashion circles – merely to us ordinary folk). sometimes i wish men who aren’t in the fashion industry would be more flamboyant and adventurous in the way they dress, without worrying about what people might think. go forth!
