Kirsty Mitchell’s Wonderland

Wonderland : Lady of The Lake

WonderlandI’ve been following Kirsty Mitchell’s ‘Wonderland’ series for a while now, only last year did she finish her epic 4 year photographic series. It is nothing short of amazing what Kirsty has created under a minuscule budget and small windows of opportunity. Every prop of costume was created, or sourced and utilised by Kirsty herself: she was designer, stylist, location scout and photographer all in one. You can see more of the series, behind-the-scenes photos and purchase prints at Kirsty’s Website. I hope you enjoy her creations as much as I do…

Days of Heaven

Why every editorial out there isn’t an atmospheric travel/fashion editorial I don’ know! They are the best! If I had my own magazine I would fill it with gorgeous photography like this. Props to Porter magazine (#3 Summer 2014) for featuring this lovely pictorial by Norman Jean Roy. Via.

Cooler than Cool

There has been this look by Lyn Devon that I have been wanting to paint for a while, I think it’s the effortless looking style and elegant stare. Whatever it is, I liked it, so I painted it ;) There is a print available at the shop. It’s been a very busy few weeks on the art front – more on that later!! – but I have a big piece I’m really enjoying painting at the moment, it’s the sort of one I feel I’d like to do more of. Be back soon…

Songe D’ete

Sometimes it’s nice to just look on good style, no bells and whistles. As I get older I am beginning to appreciate a relaxed, personal style, one not swayed to and fro by the trends of the day, but carefully choosing what they feel works for them and forgoing the rest. I like that. Here in Songe D’ete I see a style that I very much enjoy: quiet, yet elegant…very nice.

Songe D’ete is from the June/July 2014 issue of L’officiel Paris, shot by Hannah Khymych. Images from Visual Optimism.
