The Artist Using the Humble Pigeon to Reframe Violence

Adel Abdessemed 'Bristow' 2016 Bold Tendencies Com

“My horizon is always a positive one. It is the situation of the world that is full of dangers and promises,” Adel Abdessemed tells me when I ask him about the violence that often permeates his work. One could be forgiven for thinking he is preoccupied by it; he doesn’t shy away from subjects of cruelty and despair. His current show at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, entitled Conflict, presents 31 foreboding black chalk drawings of life-size military figures with…

The Members-Only Club Making Chess Cool

LR_ChessClub_0023

The adjective ‘cool’ is not one used often to describe a Mayfair members-only club – particularly one which has made chess its unique selling point. That is, unless, you are referring to Chess Club, a newly opened space in one of London’s most distinguished locales. Conceived by Francesca Zampi, who also founded The Box nightclub, and the Experimental Group (a troupe of Frenchmen who collectively own 17 bars, clubs and restaurants dotted across the world including the…

A Short History of the Most Underrated Piece of Outerwear

download

Let’s be honest: the cape is not a piece of outerwear that one would normally reach for when considering what to put on in the morning. Long associated with swashbuckling crusaders and comic book daredevils alike (and let’s not forget that Scottish Widows advert) draping a piece of swoosh-worthy fabric over your shoulders can sometimes seem feel a little theatrical for everyday purposes. However, we shouldn’t forget that theatrics are an inherent part of fashion’s…

The New Wave of Young Actresses Creating A Virtuous Reality

Screen Shot 2017-03-24 at 09.39.29

There’s something rather different about the current wave of young actresses gracing our screens; they’re valued just as much for what they say as the roles they take or the clothes on their backs, and as such have garnered a particularly devoted following. Rowan Blanchard is a prime example of such a star: her outspokenness on the issues affecting women of her generation and the subsequent following has seen her go from Disney teen heroine to Chanel muse and star of a new film directed by…

Mommie Dearest’s Lessons in Overly Dramatic Child Rearing

80921_full

“DON’T FUCK WITH ME FELLAS! This ain’t my first time at the rodeo,” roars Faye Dunaway in full Joan Crawford drag. She is, of course, playing the formidable Hollywood actress in one of the most famed performances of her career: a performance that was brow-raisingly wrong but simultaneously so very right. The 1981 cult classic Mommie Dearest, based on the tell-all biography written by Crawford’s adopted daughter Christina after her mother’s death, recounts the…

20 Years of Chic: Bonne Anniversaire, Colette!

Colette

Plenty has changed over the past 20 years of fashion. But at Colette, the famously outward-looking department store set on rue Saint-Honoré, the sprit of renewal has always defined its vision. Sarah Andelman opened Colette with her mother, Colette Roussaux, in March 1997, and has previously described the space as resembling computer software – constantly evolving with new updates and versions; “We are always in movement,” she says. We are sat in the now…

Rouge Coco Gloss, Chanel

Moisturising glossimer, Rose Pulpe, Amuse Bouche 


Many a teenage memory includes the presence of a sticky, shiny lip gloss; at my school, Lip Smackers were the brand of choice (unless you lucked out and someone bought you a Juicy Tube for your birthday). It had to be reapplied almost constantly throughout the day because its effect only lasted about 15 minutes, but that was a good thing considering that your hair would repeatedly get…

Stella Tennant and Isabella Cawdor on Their S/S17 Collection

Holland1

The adventurewear brand Holland & Holland was founded in 1835, and remains a firm staple in the wardrobes of those who have a penchant for traditional outdoor excursions to this day. Last year, two women were brought in by the storied company as its new creative directors, with the mission of evolving its range of clothing for a fashion conscious country crowd. We are, of course, referring to Stella Tennant – one of the most iconic faces of the 1990s British supermodel…
