with deadlines to be met, and stories to be told, who else could take control and not lose her cool?"

This fashion spread has to be one of my all time favourites.  It is just so classic - perhaps the houndstooth print has a lot to do with that.  Many of the looks are from Stuart Membery - the genius Australian fashion designer, who judging from his website (click on his name to go there) is now doing architecture.  He did the houndstooth hat and jacket in the sixth image, and many more.  If you click on the images you can see them in a much bigger size and may be able to read the credits.

Also, I think it is quite interesting to see this spread and see where the upcoming collection by Richard Nicoll for Sportsgirl has gotten its inspiration from.  I love the collection he's done by the way ... and am hoping for an injection of money into my bank account so I can buy some pieces.


  1. I loved this spread, I wanted just about everything in it, sadly 15 year old me got nothing!
