Caged Crystals & Secret Languages

I've had quite a heavy week that's been infused with fashionable activity. Working behind the scenes of the cosmopolitan and esquire websites has been a great insight, looking at the 'nuts and bolts' and mechanisms of the industry. And alongside this, I've written a press release for the talented prince of twisted industrial gothic tailoring, Asger Juel Larsen. His alluring androgyny can be seen at www.asgerjuellarsen.blogspot.com . Meanwhile, within the world of my own wardrobe, my attention and addiction this week has turned to the inticing intricacy of jewellery. I love the way some chains can electrify a sci-fi vibe, etherial beads and crosses can embody the weathered traveller, or a bow tie can create the Victorian eccentric. Take my example below, where an offbeat suit that's sprinkled in flowers and accessories looks like a vintage clash against the urban jungle around me. And a brand I've become enchanted by is Bjorg, whose lookbook is a mysterious set of myths and quests. The jewellery explores 'inside out' aproaches, with ribbed bracelets that creep and corset along the arm, crystals that blind and chunk on the hand, and capsules with rare gems and feathers hanging from the neck with serious bohemian charm.

  1. I really love the combination of the jacket with the flowery shirt and the boots. And I really like the first picture. You look very good in it.

    Could you do me a favor and check out my Madonna-painting? I'd really like to know if you like it.
