Remember that Barneys mailer featuring Cole Mohr and Ash Stymest that I blogged about a month or so ago? An accompanying video has just been released, with behind the scenes footage from the shoot. Looks like a fun day. I’m a big fan of video editorials/campaigns – I think everyone should take a leaf out of Black Magazine’s book and shoot them simultaneously. [via The Fashionisto] I LIKE YOU!Click to Continue!

Scans /Russh Magazine via Emma from Ragpony (thanks!) I have mixed feelings about interviews with models. They’re not actors or politicians or musicians, they’re people who were born looking a certain way.

The purpose of doing a job is toClick to Continue!
All Images /The Fashionisto Back in March I blogged about Balmain’s first menswear collection and how much the Clement Chabernaud campaign reminded me of Tom Cruise in Top Gun (which I watched two weekends ago – still amazing). The full collection has just been shot in an Ash Stymest editorial for Japanese magazine HUgE. It’s a very typical Stymest shoot – black and white, angsty, grungy, cigarette in hand, but I’ve gotta hand it to the guy, he can move in front of the camera. It’s quite a small collection, but the whole thing looks to be a darker, moreClick to Continue!
Photo: Tattoome 1. This 13 year old kid from Russia has been tattooed all over by his father, who, unsurprisingly, is a tattoo artist – a crazy, irresponsible tattoo artist. Does he look cool? Sure. Is it morally acceptable? Absolutely not. Could this kid be the world’s next Ash Stymest? Quite possibly.2. I had my wisdom teeth taken out yesterday. It was a very strange experience. One minute the anaesthetist was asking me about life as a fashion blogger, the next minute the nurse was telling me Katherine was there to take me home. General anaesthetic sure does knock youClick to Continue!
