Julia Leach In Conversation

One of my primary interests when profiling people for Dossier has always been those who do multiple things and somehow manage to do them well. A few months ago I met Julia Leach at Wieden and Kennedy, where she works as a creative director. I knew that she had come there from Kate Spade, where [...]

Maryam Nassir Zadeh In Conversation

Skye Parrott: Can you tell me a little about your background? How did you grow up, what were your parents like? Maryam Nassir Zadeh: My parents grew up in London and met in the ’60s; they fell in love in their early twenties while on a blind date. They wanted to raise a family of [...]

Louis W. for A.P.C.

For his second collaboration with A.P.C., designer Louis Wong is out to re-invent the classic American leather jacket. With references such as the iconic jacket worn by Tom Cruise in Top Gun, (or even the jacket Matthew Broderick wore in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) Louis aims to de-throne the now ubiquitous rock-n-roll black leather jacket [...]

Marie-Louise Mogensen In Conversation

A mutual friend suggested I meet Marie-Louise Mogensen when she was in New York last year. She showed up for our lunch at Reynaud’s toting a big bag of clothes from her Baserange, all of which she insisted I keep. They were mostly the wrong size, because our friend had told her I was much [...]

Santa Rosalina

Photographer Linda Brownlee and native Sicilian stylist Aisling Farinella spent Easter creating a portrait of Palermo using models, street cast from local women, and fashion from the archive of designer Simone Rocha. The characters they’ve captured are strong and feminine, steeped in religion and confidence. Above image: Giorgia wears SS12 pattern lace and net frill [...]

Escapes From Paradise

At Dossier, we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Elle Muliarchyk a number of times on fashion editorials. Each time, the result has been a complex and highly saturated tale—both in color and character. So when Elle wrote me with news of her latest project, “Escapes from Paradise,” with a subject line reading: My most [...]

To celebrate global fashion and the African continent, in particular, we’ve teamed up with Urban Outfitter’s Space 15 Twenty for a month-long pop-up shop in Hollywood, titled BAZAAAAAR. Beyond our general support of global fashion, our soon-to-debut Spring/Summer 2013 issue features a portfolio of notable fashion brands either based or producing in Africa. Covering a [...]

The New Guard

“I don’t think I exploded onto the scene. It’s definitely been hard work.” Christopher Esber is something of a rising star. While the expression appears a devastating, hopeless cliché, in Esber’s case it’s very much true – the 25-year-old designer grows more luminous with each collection. At just 23 he made his Mercedes Benz Australian [...]

This is The End

Salt Lake City gets a bad rap. Weak beer, guns galore, Brigham Young and his many wives – you’ve heard the reports. Still, it’s a place that tends to produce some very interesting and talented people. I met Cody Comrie in the summer of 2008, and he introduced me to his brother Michael Comrie soon [...]

New in Stock in Stock Photography

For the last three weeks post-internet fashion mag DIS has camped out in art-world-baby Suzanne Geiss Company’s downtown gallery. The collob between the former, a mix of well to do fashion names (Patrik Sandberg, David Toro, Solomon Chase) and hipster artists (Fatima Al Qadiri, Nick Scholl) and Geiss’s company, trendy in its own right, has [...]
