kate moss x topshop: summer 2009

Click images to enlarge.

I love this Topshop campaign (for the S/S 2009 collection). The photos are fantastic – the colors are amazing and the shots have an old hollywood, vintage feel while at the same time being fresh and summery. Enjoy!

un peu de chanel, s’il vous plaît

Oui, oui! Just a compilation of some vintage Chanel ads. I love the ones in the bottom corners – the one on the left is so youthful and fresh (and classic), and the one on the right is just so chic. Which ones are your favorites?

peter lindbergh’s “magnificent obsession”

Click images to enlarge.

It’s impossible for me to really describe this feature (from the July 2010 issue of Vogue). It’s brilliant. Peter Lindbergh is a genius. The casting is perfect. The fact that the editorial tells a story as opposed to being a compilation of fashion images gives the shoot a whole new dimension that extends far beyond the clothes (which are gorgeous, by the way). This story is not an easy one to capture in eleven images, and Peter Lindbergh managed not only to do it, but to do a beautiful job at it. This work is stunning!

i ♥ topshop

What self-respecting fashionista doesn’t adore Topshop? There’s something there for everyone, whether you’re into eccentric looks, lots of feminine details, or basic pieces you can use to build your wardrobe. Here are a few of my favorites for summer – a floaty, wear-everywhere floral dress, some lively shorts, a breezy peach top (which would pair nicely with the shorts, I must say), a body suit (to wear under everything), a vibrant red frock … the list goes on. What are your favorite Topshop finds?

prada! prada! prada!

PRADA. The word itself feels like something that should be shouted from the mountaintops. The clothes are gorgeous, and the Prada Fall 2010 ready-to-wear collection did not disappoint. Here – a selection of my favorite looks from the show. I’m not one to normally go for anything remotely retro, but everything was just so chic. I loved the black, double-breasted jackets, the cinched waists, and the long wool socks tucked into beautiful heels.

burberry prorsum fall 2010 rtw

I very much like this collection. My favorite part? That bright, cobalt blue jacket. I’ve never really been a fan of primary blue, but the color is growing on me. It’s just so very … striking. (On another note, it might have something to do with this Rebecca Taylor minidress.)

a romp in the hay

Ah, I must admit it: I have discovered a newfound infatuation with rompers.

through the looking glass

I’m sure you’ve seen this editorial (from the December 2003 issue of Vogue) before, but I couldn’t resist posting it again. The clothes are stunning, the photography is excellent, and the scenery is gorgeous!

through the lens

I’ve had many adventures in the fashion sector of the blogosphere, all of which have eventually died out, usually because I never really had the time (or energy) to keep writing and taking photos all the time, several times a week at the very least. And, I’m sure, many people don’t have the time to read incredibly long posts every single day on all of their favorite blogs (at least I know I don’t). So I promise to keep this one brief.

I want Style Lens to simply be a collection of yummy fashion photography. Some new editorials, the latest photographers, models, and up-and-coming designers, and, of course, the beautiful vintage classics that we should never forget. (And of course, shopping posts – it is a fashion blog too, after all.) I personally have a great interest in photography (not to mention fashion), and I want this blog to reflect that. I hope you’ll come to think of it as a weekly fashion journal (probably a Sunday morning post to enjoy every week) where you can catch up on the fashion world without spending too much time sorting through tons of blogs and long, in-depth articles. It’s merely a place for inspiration, to give you ideas about your own wardrobe and to admire some beautiful photography along the way.

I hope you enjoy reading and browsing through some gorgeous photographs! ♥
