Recently, one of my most beloved people in the world – Elle – asked me to make her a playlist of not-completely-mainstream music.
Because I love her…and you…here it is! One hour of aural sex featuring Spoon, Yelle, Aloe Blacc, Foo Fighters, M83, Noisettes, Jessie J, Pigeons of Death, Cold War Kids, Gotye, Kimbra, The Subways, Foster The People, Arctic Monkeys, The xx, The Ting Tings, Chubby Checker and Bruce Springsteen.
(Spotify is free, in case you don’t have it!)
Marios Schwab is the King of hard and soft juxtaposition. This London Fashion Week, things were no different. The models stomped along to Bruce Springsteen‘s “I’m On Fire” and Nirvana‘s “Come As You Are” while giving us the first look at a young and sexy collection of lingerie-inspired dresses and tattoo-patterned jerseys. This is the collection for rebels with fashion as their cause.
“I would say this collection is less about body concious shapes and more about fluidity and the drape of cloth on the body to accentuate key areas of interest on the body. Combining the feminine slip dresses with leather pieces which have a tougher, harder edge. The women I had in mind when creating this collection are a generation of women who have multi-faceted personalities shaped by contemporary culture and the different roles she must fulfill in her life. They’re loaded with contradictory ideas and spirits.” – Marios Schwab
