#InstaLOVE – December 2017

@concept21store

I am an Instagram maniac and I openly confess that I spend too much time on filtering my feed. But it’s irresistible, when you have so many great accounts to follow! If you’re ready for a dose of beautifully curated walls, inspiring photos and delightful shots – see my December (by the way, the last of 2017) recommendations!

@mrmattberman / Matt Berman’s feed is like a treasure chest of vintage moments starring Cher, Lauren Hutton and the late Johnny Hallyday. Those times…

@concept21store / My favourite Concept 21  has just reopened in a new location – and I’m more than happy to see so many great Polish designers there. Even if you’re not in Poznań, take a look at it!

@suzannekoller / The co-founder of Self Service and fashion director at Me Le Magazine du Monde, Suzanne Koller, posts the best backstage snaps you can imagine. Also, I’m always intrigued by the way she portrays Paris. That’s chic with no cliché.

@m.o.endres / That feeling when you want to move into somebody else’s house is quaranteed, once you induldge yourself in Maura Endres’ feed. Really, be careful with this one! It’s too beautiful.

@le__dauphin / ‘Glamour is terror’, according to this anonymous Insta-curator. Subversive, eerie and distubring, yet sexy – that’s how one can describe this visual diary, filled with Madonna’s underrated moments, 90s Alexander McQueen and drama-wise femme fatales. Love it.

@hobomag / This very ‘normal’ photo of Tilda Swinton, taken by Juergen Teller, is the most striking thing I’ve seen for months on Instagram. No explanations needed!

@marrakech_brooklyn / Who doesn’t love an eternally chic mood-feed? The one curated by Paul Rowland is my latest favourite, with some great Debbie Harry S&M / Lauren Hutton in mud moments.

@robbiespencer / Robbie Spencer is Dazed & Confused Magazine’s creative director. His Instagram feed is solely dedicated to his work. He posts rarely, but when he does, you just want to ‘bookmark’ each post. Whether it’s Lily McMenamy in a Balenciaga couture gown and Robert Quinn’s houndstooth body or Junya Watanabe neo-punks, Spencer is one of the brightest minds behind London’s fashion scene.

@haleywollens / Haley Wollens is a stylist, who doesn’t necessarily want to style the editorials in the most ‘safe’ way – the looks rather disturb, than please the advertisers. Also, she works with Chloë Sevigny, dressing her in Saint Laurent and Y / Project. That’s quite a match!

@wilfridwoodsculptor / Wilfrid Wood studied graphics at Central St. Martins, then got a job in publishing. As he puts it in his own words, he got bored of that and applied to train as a ‘headbuilder’ for the satirical TV program Spitting Image. When that ended I became a freelance sculptor. Currently based in East London, Wilfrid’s incredible clay sculptures satirically resemble everyone, from Sir Paul McCartney to Angela Merkel. I love most current venture into fashion world: his Casil McArthur’s head is everything, commissioned for 10 Men Magazine.

@thesartorialist / Scott Schuman‘s street-style shots are nothing new. But I just have to share those two incredible images above – Emiliano Salci and Davide Marello’s outfits. This perfectly pictures my constant style dilemma – edgy pajamas or classy Milano? Can I be both?

@mohawkgeneralstore / With stores in Silver Lake, Santa Monica and Pasadena, Mohawk General Store makes you drool – even if you live on the other side of the globe. Their feed is filled with in-store editorials (note all the Dries Van Noten goodness) and aesthetically gripping shots of the wood-filled interiors. The ‘mood’ pics are great as well. Make sure to visit the Mohawk fam during your next trip to Cali…

@saintrecords / Well, if you love Solannge‘s heavenly music, please follow her (and her bold fashion / hair statements).

@clarissedemory / There’s an undefined aura around Clarisse Demory‘s work, which is called creative direction specifically. The Paris-based individual counts the likes of Sophie Buhai, Barabara Casasola, Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Christophe Lemaire as clients, revamping their showroom spaces and interiors with tactile elements and objects from local hardware stores. I personally had a chance to perceive Demory’s power-of-the-detail while visiting Lemaire’s showroom in Paris a few months ago, and – still unaware those vases and floral arrangements were curated by Clarisse – literally felt like home away from home. Following Demory on Instagram means a rare peek into the director’s haute-cozy, minimally-eclectic aesthetic.

@helmutlang / For those who have a reasoned fear of New York Fashion Week’s downfall this season – Helmut Lang, the brand originally found by the Austrian visionaire, is having a major rebirth. Kicking off this fall under Isabella Burley (editor-in-chief of Dazed & Confused & the editor-in-residence at Lang) and Shayne Oliver’s (who launched Hood by Air) wings, I’m quite sure this will be one of loudest moments of the fashion month. The debut collection will take place on the 11th of September, but till the time comes, make sure to follow the drop of campaign images starring such off-kilter personalities like Larry Clark or Kembra Pfahler, and ‘The Artist Series’.

@blancamiroskoudy / Blanca Miró Skoudy is not your average Instagram girl, that’s for sure. Once with a face painted in blue, then smoking a cigarette with extremely pink cheeks, is she a modern-day, eccentric femme fatale? Blanca is an illustrator most of all. And her doodles and drawings are so, so good.

@miumiuwomenstales / There are many reasons to love Miuccia Prada. Miu Miu Women’s Tales is one of them. Here, Prada’s sister line generates a platform for talented female directors to present their vision on a wider platform. And, of course, they can use as many Miu Miu pieces as they want! Although the concept isn’t new (it launched few years ago and already had Chloë Sevigny, Miranda July and Zoe Cassavetes collaborate among others), the Instagram account appeared just recently. With collage as the main medium of visual presentation, it makes me really wonder what we can expect next from the world of Miu women.

@julystars / I couldn’t help, but select Jaja Hargreaves‘ feed for the August #InstaLOVE. Her content curation will make anyone dreamy, especially in summer. Margaux Hemingway tropical dress-code, Lauren Hutton wearing a bucket hat, Joan Didion wrapped in a blanket. Lots of sun-bathed flesh and straw hats. Need more? See it yourself.
