Fri 24th Sept: Noel Stewart for Gemma Slack
Facebook is a brilliant medium for staying in touch with what everyone is up to at an instant glance. I spied a snap of a cute puppy on Noel Stewart's status and recognised the perky pug to be the infamous Ramone belonging to Gemma Slack. Noel had been visiting Gemma working on the millinery for her S/S collection and now I have stumbled across his photos from the look book shoot ..........
I love this beautiful billowing soft silhouette of a headscarf draped over Noel's large gold rim straw sun hat. The pastel organza and silk is printed with a collage of female nudes to add a palette of pinks and purples to her predominantly black line. The design has come about thru a collaboration with photographer Kristin Vicari who shot bruised skin for the thematic print.
I'm getting really excited about more designers branching out with inclusion of millinery to accessorize their outfits! Woo Hoo!
To have a look at these tip top hats, track down Gemma's showroom in Paris.........
