AW11 Fashion Advertisements

I'm loving some of the fashion advertisements out at the minute, and usually I flick over these when reading fashion magazines, so because they got my attention, I wanted to do a quick post, showing some of my favourites.

Menswear AW11: 'Maximum of Minimum'

One of my favourite menswear collections for A/W11 is from the designers Sachiko Okada and Aaron Sharif, for their fashion label Blaak.

I love firstly the title of the collection, which reminds me of my work- in my photo shoot concepts I like to look at extremes, from maximum taste to minimal classics.

Menswear collections for AW/11 flirted with the androgynous look, the collections were also heavily influenced by functionality within clothing. Blaak's Maximum of Minimum collection does have these key styles and themes within their collection, but it's not overtly out there and in your face which I really like. You can see subtle greats in their pieces for A/W11- for instance, I love their black shirt with zipped collar, it looks fab as it is, but when the collar is zipped away, it gives the shirt another style.

This shoot below, from Dazed and Confused online, reminds me so much also of The Hurts style- one which you guys know I love!

This shoot in itself, is fab! I love the yellow undertones of the images, and the 4th image below is just stunning. The way the photographer caught the models movement yet shot the product so clear is gorgeous.

Carry on Camping

Hello readers!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I have been on a fantastic rustic camping trip, and I mean proper camping with campfires, cowboy coffees and mess tins-the simple life really was bliss, and at the moment I've been working my behind off for UKGreetings, earning some dosh so this is why posting has been low.

But, with my first day off since my return from camping, I thought I would share with you a couple of camping photos from my fantastic trip.
