Last Thursday the extravagant men's footwear label Jeffery West celebrated their first anniversary. The new collection was presented with an intimate, but very rock & roll worthy performance by Ellen ten Damme. It was also the official opening of the photo exhibition in which Ellen ten Damme wears the shoes in her very own cheeky extravagant style, which is what she became known for. This exhibition is on display until early December in the Jeffery West boutique in the Runstraat 17 in Amsterdam. Because there is an enormous demand for these shoes, in the future the brand will also sell women's sizes. www.jeffery-west.nl
“For Spring Summer 2012, I started the way that I always try to work, with something current and close to me. I recently took a family trip to Marrakesh, a place I have always had a strange relationship with as it’s such a big fashion subject. But then I went, I saw and it kicked me. This crazy melting pot of cultures, era’s, nationalities and influences – it is kind of the way I work fashion and I started to think of how a young woman from Stockholm would interpret this amazing place. Trying to capture these different influences we worked with denim, double silk and raw edged double cotton, creating a multicultural vibe. I know a trip is boring but sometimes it’s what you need.” Jonny Johansson
Over 500 people packed ACNE's show last Sunday night at the urban dis-used space of London's Old Sorting office. Thirty-two models paraded along a 50 meter long mirrored catwalk to a thumping house soundtrack. In line with the shows modernest Marrakesh Vibe, Yves Klein Blue waiters served Vodka martini's.
In attendance: Clemence Poesy - Model Irina Lazareanu - Style.com’s Tim Blanks - The XX - Romy Madley-Croft & Oliver Sims - Michelle Jank - Bloggers Susie Lau & Hanneli Mustaparta - Lady Laura Burlington - Vogue Australia’s Kirsty Clements - American Vogue’s Mark Holgate - Mr Hudson - Mimi Xu - Colin McDowell - Lisa Ephson - Mrs Burstein
