From all corners of the globe this early nineties style is being soaked up for inspiration in current collection. For designer Nico Carp, based in Bucharest, Romania he used the “back to grunge” concept in his AW 14.15 collection.
He says “This collection aims to keep the image of the past but also wants to reflect the grunge attitudef of these days, the joy of our own freedom.”

Sometimes when there is change there is a feeling of hitting a sort of low or bottom. When you rise out of that fog, you become a chameleon and adapt to the change. There are some changes going on here but eventually the waves will calm, and a new dawn will approach.
I’ve created this inspiration post to go with an alternative music video by The Vines that I happened to find on the internet (I haven’t seen it in years). So watch the video and scroll down this weeks inspiration patch.

I was reading an interview with Australian model & photographer, Grace Small in Oyster Mag a few months ago and it was one of the best ever. Mainly because we have many of the same influences like Kim Gordon and the ubiquitous “Dirty Girls” clip from YouTube. Upon closer look she shares the hard edged sense of an indie 90s model, probably one of the many reasons why I find her so intriguing.

One of my most recent discoveries is 20 year old Danish model, Sylvester Ulv Henriksen. He’s represented all over Europe but his mother agency is Unique Models in Denmark. A true chameleon in every sense of the word, he was discovered online by a scout when he was 15. Since then he’s modeled in Balenciaga campaigns and appeared in editorials photographed by some of the top industry leaders in the fashion world. This only further cements my desire to do more traveling and shooting in Scandinavia.

British model and actress, Ella Jazz has an aura of just an all around cool chick. Often photographed by Victor Vauthier, her carefree style and tomboy charm shines through in any given surrounding. Time to cure that humpday blues with a peek into the world of Ella Jazz.

24 year old model Ali Michael is one of my recent favorites when scouring the internet for new model muses. Her disheveled yet dewy morning glow is her signature and for good reason. She’s just got the best fresh approach to the girl next door with edge. Not so surprisingly her bf is fellow model, Marcel Castenmiller who is also quite a photographer as well. Model couples really are just so fascinating. In the latest CKone video ad, she stars alonside Marcel in a campaign that could only be Calvin Klein.

When the seasons begin to change, there is a shift. The days get longer and colors get brighter. “Wild Doves” by Shaniqwa Jarvis is just the representation of that feeling. Blending vintage and New York spirit in the style of the 90s teenager makes for another great exclusive to share with you all.

Sometimes I feel like I lead a double life. There is a part of me what wants to give everything up, run away and do something completely different with my life. Then there are times like today when I’m in the creative mix and everything feels so right. I think this means I need a vacation. In the meantime, here’s a new inspiration post to start the week off. Ask yourself, what do you want to do and are you doing it?
