You can even have it written on your T-shirt.

I like it when fashion and music collide. Usually, the people who work in music and fashion, are the people I wish were my friends. Take, for example, Coco Sumner. A successful model with great style, and now the force behind the band 'I Blame Coco'. And, in case you didn't know, she calls Sting her dad.
I know that everyone will be prejudiced now, and say things like: 'Oh, she has a music career because her dad's famous,' and 'Oh, another model-turned-musician'. But that's not fair, because she is really talented. And I don't care whether she is famous because of her dad, and what her other jobs are, I just really like her songs. And admit it, she dresses great.

You know you love her! Check out her music videos:

Pretty Much Everything

Yesterday I went to an exhibition of the photographer's duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, in the Foam Amsterdam. The amount of amazing photos was simply stunning; 30 years in the business led to more than 300 pictures that filled the walls of Foam. They were positioned in some kind of labyrinth that went on and on. Though I didn't understand all the pictures, the overall feeling was one of bright ideas and very diverse work. From little polaroids to enlarged campaign pictures for ChloƩ and Balmain, each photo is special. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shook up the fashion (and art) world with their innovative use of photoshop, creating a different vibe than the simple, 'real' grunge streamlet that was going on in photography in the 90s. You can't really categorise their work. This is art and fashion, commercial and artistic, personal and for the public.
I tried to photograph these photos, but it was kind of hard because of the reflections. I hope you can appreciate their work anyway.

Ice cream in a desert dream...

When I saw the images of Vivienne Westwood's fall 2010 rtw show, the first thing that went through my mind was: Cocorosie. The clothes were all a bit messy and thrown together, the models wore moustaches and the whole thing breathed some kind of dark vagabond mood. You can apply this description also to Cocorosie, the band formed by two extremely cool sisters, Bianca and Sierra. Look at these pictures and be inspired.

And may I add that I think Vivienne Westwood is one of the most inspiring women in fashion? I mean, look at her hair! It's orange!
If you're curious about Cocorosie's music, check out this video for their song 'Lemonade'. Is it just me, or does Lady Gaga suddenly seem perfectly normal?
