Glass Magazine Chanel Editorial – Summer 2017

What do we love? Chanel. Who else do we love? Glass Magazine. Why?

Recently I have been making friends with the people over at Glass Magazine. By friends, I actually mean Facebook and Instagram friends. This of course will be remedied by me being awesome in their proximity and vice versa. Life goals people.

I’m especially enjoying the work of the Stylist, who works with Glass regularly, Katie Felstead. She is genius and makes everything from modern, edginess too romantic styles look brilliant. You know I don’t give accolades to other Stylist’s unless they are balls out amazing.

Back to this amazing editorial. Chanel is one of those amazing labels that every country understands. Say Chanel anywhere in the world (except maybe the deep amazon, though maybe there too) and it’s recognized as a brand with integrity, quality that costs big bucks.

Glass Magazine produced a wonderful Chanel editorial shoot that’s soft, beautiful and sexy. Giving us the sense of a gentle and delicate Chanel woman.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Daphne Guinness + David LaChapelle = Inspiration

I believe that it important to remember that we live in one of the most exciting era’s of Fashion. The 21st century has brought us some of the most important Fashion icons since Coco Chanel.

I wanted to share some of the mad genius that is being devised now with two of my favorite and most important influences. David LaChapelle and Daphne Guinness.

David LaChapelle’s imagery is creationism at it’s best. Color, vivid imagery and a twisted mind has set him apart and brought him to the forefront of both art and photography.

Daphne Guinness, although the heiress of the Guinness fortune, has become an icon in Fashion as a model, collector of couture, designer, creator of her own make up line for MAC and best friend of the late Alexander McQueen but continues to inspire.

Together they conceived one of the most stunning photos I have ever seen.

Guinness Submerged herself repeatedly underwater for up to two minutes in order for LaChapelle to get a perfect shot.

The imagination is limitless. Dream big darlings. This proof you can always exceed even your own expectations with inspiration.
