Erin x Jalouse













Jalouse is a great magazine an' all, but I spent a frantic 15 minutes searching for 10 in Agora in Paris last week, and it turned out to be hiding behind the Erin covered Jalouse, right at eye level. Really annoying. Just sayin'.


Cracking set of photos though, no?

EILIS BOYLE


A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of working on a photoshoot with the lovely Eilis Boyle for the Oxfam "We Are Tee" campaign. While we were in the studio (D-Light, an amazing space in one of the weirdest locations in the city) we shot some of the dresses from Eilis' tenth collection. Modelled by Annmarie O'Connor with photography by Beta, the dresses are absolutely beautiful, and the shoot was so much fun. Check out the fruits of our labour!

We Are Tee





Oxfam have launched a range of limited edition t-shirts designed by various Irish designers including Peter O'Brien, Alison Conneely and Joanne Hynes. I was lucky enough to be involved in the beginning stages of one of the tees, designed by the lovely Eilis Boyle (more on that later).

The photos here are via Angela Scanlon, who styled the campaign-I love the street style vibe of the shoot. The tees are 100% fairtrade and are available from the a|wear site, priced at around €30 each.

Boys Club


Obsessed with the blurred masculine/feminine thing this week. Bought a hat and two shirts, and have spent the last 8 days in pants. I love these shoots, thinking less in terms of actual clothes and more in general demeanour. 









Eniko for Numéro October 2010, shot by Tom Munro and styled by Charles Varenne.
What an absolute dude.




Valerija Kelava and Clément Chabernaud in the most recent Man About Town, shot by the amazing and brilliant Paolo Roversi and styled by Jacob K., whom I know nothing about, but I like a lot based solely on this spread. 

Hey there // I like your hair





Having read about Moroccanoil hair products for months on beauty blogs and thinking you couldn't buy it anywhere in Dublin, I finally got my child paws (and dried out split ends) on some of the shine serum at the VIP Towers beauty sale (a magical event I was lucky enough to be around for during my time with The Dubliner magazine). The serum smells lovely and really does make your hair shiny, but I was still gagging for a bottle of the original treatment. Amazingly, I found it in a random salon (on Clarendon Street, for any interested parties), and it really is the absolute business. It's really satisfyingly thick and gooey in the hands, but put into damp hair before normal styling (read - blowdrying the shit out of), it doesn't feel oily or sticky. I recently dyed the ends of my hair lighter; my first foray into colour since I bleached a few chunks and dyed them pink when I was fourteen- which means that the ends now properly resemble straw if left to their own devices. Thankfully, a few pumps of this absolute gem of a product and my poor distressed ends are lovely and silky. Can't reccommend it highly enough, just trust me and go buy a bottle.

Been a bit mad about Elisa Sednaoui since Remember Now. Love this spread from Vogue Germany last December with Elisa, Bianca Balti and Luca Gadjus by Vincent Peters.
