Tim Walker exhibition "Story Teller"

British fashion photographer Tim Walker opened his Story Teller exhibition yesterday at Somerset House. With model and icon Kate Moss attending the Mulberry supported exhibition alongside Cara Delevingne and Portia Freeman.

Some of my favourite photographs

From the exhibition

Tim Walker is inspirational to anyone in the industry, his work has featured in British and Italian Vogue for over a decade as well as featuring in W and Harpers Bazaar. His work has a romantic soft feel which sometimes contrasts with a dark beauty. As well as being playful with giant oversized objects, anything from a doll to a watering can.  Locations of countryside and large stately homes give him room to play about with the set and that is shown in his photography as well as in the exhibition. Showcasing some of the oversized items from his sets, the crashed aeroplane, white swan, broken egg and spoon and many more.

I just have to visit!

Junya Wantanabe

I love this Japanese fashion designer I found, which I recently saw his S/S13 collection posted by Love Magazine on Instagram from Paris fashion week. The sporty looks will all teamed with helmets of oversized studs and spikes, very futuristic.

Looking back on some of his work in particular skin and bones which featured oversized structured ruffles as well as a very dark collection from a/w 08/09 showing a lot of draped stretch fabrics and face covering headpieces.

He had previously worked for Comme des Garcons but decided to create his own line, known for his futuristic but wearable designs, new cutting edge concepts which push the boundaries of design.
