Corrie Bond

While searching for some inspiration for future photo shoots, I discovered fashion photographer, Corrie Bond. This UK-based photographer is widely known for her work for Marie Claire, In-Style and New York Times. Her work has an admirable feminine quality, and consistently conveys timeless beauty. Bond strategically manipulates natural light and dewy shadows to delicately graze her subject matter. Through her compositions and editing style, Bond’s photographs whisper a soft, vintage feeling. Her editorials are light, breathtaking and a visual treat. Take a peak at her stunning work below and visit her website to see more work.

Wings + Horns

 

This online retailer is a great find.  Wings + Horns presents refreshingly simple menswear.  Their website’s about section sums up their approach nicely:

Originating between Vancouver and Tokyo, Wings+Horns was founded in 2004.  Inspired to combine Canadian elements with Japanese quality, Wings+Horns has established itself as a lifestyle brand that integrates its classic fits with a utilitarian style.

The clean, well-crafted aesthetic is even represented in their Fall 2012/Winter 2013 Lookbook.

These looks are great, and their entire website is full of on-trend (yet versatile) items.  Be sure to take a look around their site, and enjoy a few more sneak peeks below.

Lois Albinson

Lois Albinson is an emerging knitwear designer from Manchester, and a former student at the Manchester School of Art, with a BA in Textiles. Albinson’s work is unprecedented, and a phenomenal addition to the fashion industry. Her ability to manipulate yarn to create organic, rippled structures in her knits is beyond mind blowing. Through the variety of yarns and knitting techniques, Albinson fabricates delicate, yet rigid, highly textured fashions. Although Albinson heavily employs contrasting elements in her work, she has perfected the balance, resulting in appealing and harmonious designs. Support her extraordinary work by liking her facebook page, and check out her blog to stay up-to-date on her developments!

Hats

Hats are a classic, debonair way for a man to protect himself from the sun.  A smart-dressed man reaches for a hat on the way out the door as the simple, functional way to complete a look.  Many men say, “I’m not a ‘hat person’.”  This is false.  ‘Hat people’ are merely the people brave enough to wear them.   The key to looking your best in a hat (as with most clothing) is to focus on fit.  Tight-fitting hats shrink the head and can add the illusion of weight; loose-fitting hats can lend the wearer an unfortunate, Oliver Twist appearance.  Also remember that light colors are the only way to go in these warm summer months.  Browse some simple, straw fedoras from Banana Republic, and take cues from the following photos to inspire your own look.

Anna Duthie

Anna Duthie is a recent graduate from Glasgow School of Art, with a specialty in fashion embroidery. Although this textile designer is just beginning in the fashion world, we can already tell that she will take fashion textiles to exciting new levels. Duthie’s perspective treasures the art of patterns, with the focus on contrasting textures and colors. In short, muted colors fused with embroidered geometric shapes and blocked lines are definitive of her aesthetic. Duthie’s striking designs are effortlessly cool. The fervent simplicity of her work is admirable and also desirable for clothing. Check out more of her designs on her website and view her senior work below!

Kinfolk Magazine

Kinfolk, a guide for small gatherings, is a lovely treatise to a simpler way of life. It envelopes you in a world where people still bake cookies from scratch and use paper maps. This printed magazine is filled with beautiful photography and insightful articles focused on the topic of gathering together with both friends and strangers alike. It includes interviews with noted artists, reviews of small shops, recipes for delicious food, and thoughts on getting back to our roots. It also includes the work of two photographers that we have featured on Florence & Millie, Leo Patrone and Tec Petaja! You can watch a beautiful video on their philosophy here. Though it may occasionally get a bit hipster, we absolutely love this magazine.
