Thom Browne, psychedelic space girls and Wednesday Adams

A few of my favourite looks from Thom Browne's latest collection. I love it when designers actually put on a show, and make a runway show a memorable theatrical event, that isn't just gorgeous women walking in a straight line. This show had space age ballerinas, hypnotic pinwheels, and fun house mirrors. The girls look like beautiful corpses, that have just been resurrected from the 1960's- and have borrowed Wednesday Adams Tights.

Lula issue 14, Amish dreams

Lula is probably my favourite magazine to obsessively pour over. If you haven't heard of Lula before, its  British publication, founded by Leith Clark- and everything about it it beautiful. It is however notoriously hard to get hold of (Ive only managed to actually find it for sale in a shop once, and this was at an airport) So I usually order it from Newsstand. International readers, I'm sorry, but your going to have to source your own suppliers!
This editorial is my favourite from the latest issue, and has similar Amish haziness as the last photos I posted.

Lovisa Ingman for Leur Logette

These photos are of Lovisa Ingman for Leur Logette, taken from their Summer 2012 look book, and are shot by Sayaka Maruyama. DEEP BREATH. Okay, now I've delivered all the necessary information. 
I think these photos are gorgeous. They reminded me of the film Martha Marcy May Marlene, which is shot throughout with a similar washed out look. The film is based around the Manson Family case, and follows Marcy as she escapes from a controlling cult. It also stars Elizabeth Olsen, who is apparently this third Olsen sister that has suddenly crept out of the woodwork. I was a bit dubious of watching a serious film staring an Olsen sister- I mean, although they've stared in great productions such as 'Mary Kate and Ashley in action' (yes I did just google that) I think a murdering religious cult might be a bit out of their depth. But I was actually pleasantly surprised by Elizabeth Olsen's performance, which was very good. So watch it. Also, I apologise to any Olsen twin aficionados.
