#InstaLOVE – July 2017

@paloma_powers

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 July recommendations!

@juliendys / For a reason, Julien D’Ys (or ‘Juju’, as Linda Evangelista likes to say) is called the hair-magician. The legendary coiffeur is known for his incredible hairstyles and colossal wigs seen at Comme Des Garçons, and lately has been on everybody’s lips after Azzedine Alaïa presented his haute couture collection with statuesque Nefertiti head-sculptures (as seen on Naomi Campbell). Once you follow Julien, you will become obsessed with his impressively emotional paintings and blurry photos of people on the streets.

@vanravenstein / Van Ravenstein is Amsterdam’s go-to store for Ann Demeulemeester, Vetements, Junya Watanabe and Dries Van Noten – in other words, fashion’s real pearls. Moody showroom snaps and styling tricks quaranteed.

@paloma_powersAn endless mood-board of ‘new type art agency’. Bold throwbacks of Cher on stage or lounging Charlotte Rampling on a red sofa. Must-follow!

@loudoillon / The French singer’s doodles and captured moments, whether featuring her escape to Bretagne or a throwback pic with mum (read: Jane Birkin). A summer must-follow!

@papoozband / Ok, French musicians have the best feeds. Papooz’s Ulysse Cottin (lead guitar, vocals) and Armand Penicaut (rhythm guitar) are partners in their proffesional and private life. Lately, they’ve released the ultimate chill-out track (accompanying a dreamy video clip filmed in Japan) Good Times on Earth. What to expect from their Instagram? Lots of behind-the-stage fun.

@vogueparisarchives / Chic-ness. From early Inez & Vinoodh editorials to a Sofia Coppola shoot, this feed has the finest of Vogue Paris.

@mollymgoddard / Molly Goddard is London’s beloved girl. The fashion designer is praised for her great love for anything tulle and for making princess-dresses have a comeback to the industry. The picture above was taken minutes before LVMH Prize Awards last Friday (unfortunately, she didn’t win the main prize…). Still, that dress on the right is love.

@sokothecat / This French actress (The Dancer) and musician (her latest track, Sweet Sound of Ignorance), Stéphanie Sokolinsky (aka Soko), is the ultimate definition of badass cool. With her post-grunge, punk-lolita aesthetic, the multidisciplinary artist has scored her place in the fashion world. Soko is the girl you want to have at your New York garden party. Alessandro Michele knows how to launch a Gucci fragrance with a wow: just bring Soko and Lana Del Rey under MoMA PS1’s roof. Petra Collins, Hari Nef, Dakota Johnson, hi!

@lynettegarland / Love Magazine’s stylist, recently working for Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs: take a look at Garland’s moody backstage images and black & white musings.

@graciehartzel / If she’s not modelling for the likes of Tom Ford or Chanel, Grace contributes to La Femme, a French psych punk band. Take a look at her intriguing DIY make-up looks once you hit her Instagram!

@saylouloumusic / Mirandra and Elektra Kilbey’s Say Lou Lou is a twin sister musical duo hailing from Australia and Sweden. Planning to listen to their songs, but for now it’s their sun bathed and chic feed that keeps we absorbed.

@_ju_lien_ / Julien Baulu is a Paris-based fashion consultant and researcher, who has a soft point for vintage issues of Vogue Paris, cult Elle covers and unforgettable Harper’s Bazaar editions. My magazine collection is quite a yawn comparing to his. A must follow.

@h.a / Yes, that’s Haider Ackermann’s account. And yes, that’s Tilda Swinton and Waris Ahluwalia sitting next to him. Too good to be true.

@prada / Prada is currently releasing Willy Vanderperre’s portraits of autumn-winter 2017 models, wearing biker hats, sea-shell necklaces and ribbed knits. Seriously considering a new hair-cut.
