ELLE France

This is my first post since the turn of the year, and there has been a very good reason for that. Last Christmas I was asked to embark on a massive re-design of ELLE France - not a small project, especially as the magazine is so jam packed and a weekly. Some of the results are shown here. It obviously took pretty much all my time and now it's up and running I can concentrate on my new job as the magazine's Creative Director. Hopefully I'll keep the blog up to date with lots of amazing shoots that I am planning. Keep your eyes peeled!

Cedric Delsaux - The Dark Lens (Star Wars)

On a brief trip to Paris today I found this great book by Cedric Delsaux. All the images were shot in Paris, Lille or Dubai. It's a fascinating take on the Star Wars behemoth and how it fits seamlessly into our own reality. Check out Monsieur Delsaux's site and read an interesting piece from the New York Times here.

Mr Natty takes New York

Mr Natty and I took a little trip to New York recently... spreading the word about all things Natty. In between nattering Natty our good friend Mr William Gentle (aka Backyard Bill) took some fine shots of Mr Natty for his fantastic blog - there is, as ever, a link to it on the right. Go visit and tell Bill how amiable and talented he is.

Esquire Big Black Book

In New York the other week I caught up with my old Arena mucker, Mr Nick Sullivan, now Fashion Director at US Esquire and the brains behind The Big Black Book. It's very well thought out gentlemen's organ that I highly recommend. Now in it's 5th year, it is, as the lady at Hudson News in JFK noted, 'expensive', but worth it. Some lovely stories by the esteemed Mr Poynter, Mr Roper and Mr Clarke.
