 Last night I watched the 70s documentary, 'Grouipes', after much hype and anticipating mega outfit inspiration to be honest it wasn't all that great. The girls came off as CRAZY and the extended band performances were a bit surplus to requirements, but it sent me off on a google mission this morning, where I found some amazing images.
My favourite groupie in the film was Miss Harlow, pictured in the last 2 photos, her beyond backcombed hair, 20s ephemera and spaced out attitude were entrancing and intriguing.
If you haven't read it the Pamela De Barres autobiography 'I'm With The Band' is a great insight into the scene and the girls surrounding all those rock stars.

My friend Jennifer gave me a head's up on this conceptual holiday project in Joshua Tree California, and set up alongside artist Andrea Zittel's A-Z West residency.
The idea of going on holiday with the basic necessities, surrounded by the "lunar-like" environment of Joshua Tree is becoming more and more appealing, especially if you have the added bonus of staying in a small futuristic space capsule looking caravan!

Oh Antonio!

I saw some of fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez's work at a small exhibition in London a few months ago, his bright cartoon-like girls feel really right at the moment. I love the colours palettes and the almost felt tip pen application.

Jerome C. Rousseau + Elle + The Coveteur = DREAM TEAM

My good friend, footwear designer Jerome C. Rousseau has been featured in today's, showing off his wardrobe, as photographer by The Coveteur. He is the perfect choice for The Coveteur and Elle, with so many legendary pieces of clothing and accessories and a standout signature style. When I opened the link to the feature, I was delighted to see that Jerome had pointed out my blog as one of his digital inspirations, which absolutely made my day!

Check out Jerome's shoes here;

Janis Overload

I love Janis' look here, and the guys look like a whole bunch of long haired fun!

Urban Fog

I live in Dalston, which is in east London, which seems to have turned into pop-up central of late & yesterday I went to check out the Urban Fog pop-up tea house/ installation.
It was great, and made me feel like I don't turn things into installation pop-ups as much as I should! It is housed in a pre-planning permission building, where the interior has been recreated into a gauzy/ hazy tunnel-like space, with little triangular seating pockets where you can sip your tea from jam jars.
The experience is much better than my description. it's on til the 28th of May, and I would visit soon.

Maxing the library

Lately I have been diverting the money I spend on clothes and accessories and channeling it into filling out my book collection.

Featuring a great selection of contemporary designers and jewellers, Adams has collated a refreshing edit of images, and Q & As with favourites such as Arielle de Pinto, BLESS, Jordan Askill and Elke Krammer.

Check it out here.

I just discovered Clayton Patterson's 2008 film Captured. It is a must see for anyone interested in New York's cultural history, the influence of documenting your surroundings, outsider art and general rebellion.
Clayton documented his surroundings in the Lower East Side from the late 70s, and managed to capture so much dynamism and spirit of the people that lived there in his photographs and later with a video camera, the results are the basis of Captured.
You can watch it free online. I would highly recommend it, although it did leave me questioning a lot of things about my changing surroundings and the bad habit we have of romanticizing our recent past...anyway, check it out, if only for Clayton's amazing embroidered caps.
