Fashion does it Better

Baroudeuse

From a random kebab-house to Karl Lagerfeld via some stops at some fast-food restaurant, the station's piano and two yellow letterboxes, Daria Werbowy's trip in Paris, Gare du Nord, has more to do with our own experiences of the french capital city than what an editor-in-chief of some foreign Vogue might see from the backseat of her (or his) car avec chauffeur. The smell of wet pavements, the legions of kamikaze pigeons, the grumpy tobacconists and the nasty grannies willing to kill you with their umbrella – all these little... [Lire la suite]

Sexy Siouxsie (NSFFW*)

*Not Safe For Fashion Week. So, we start to hear about the newest Prada exclusive bookings, start to read unknown names and we'll have a look once the bottle of beer is empty. For now, we're more dazzled by one of Harley Weir's editorials from the latest issue of POP Magazine starring Suzi Leenaars. The tiny Aussie has enough punch to stun you as if you were dead drunk and forget the shows must go on, forget about the swanky lanky silhouettes tiptoeing glamourously in their stilettos. If all these runway rookies look like... [Lire la suite]

Diavola Ice-Cream

We took another slice, slept away, took another slice, another train, arrived on lemon grass, in a godforsaken station wishing we were in Paris, to suck all the glitz and glam of a part of the world, but no. High on the sidewalk, high on whatever powder, whatever hay, whatever liquid, we seriously didn't know and never will. Plastic bags are the sexiest thing on earth and we'll never know the taste of it, if you caress it, you may rest in peace, with chance. We are megakult, we drive too fast, we passed the lights, red or green,... [Lire la suite]

La Revanche d'Une Brune

Jacquelyn Jablonski @ Supreme (NY) Tears of love might be frozen tears, it's still not supposed to mean they should freeze your mind as well and stick it to the last memories of an era. And when the next chapter is able to warm you up, even when it's actually two chapters later that everything happens, these tears which should have never dried finally vanish and leave room on your face for a brand new smile. Not going to dive deeper into details on the way we lived Valentino Garavani's retirement some seasons ago as getting too... [Lire la suite]

// Parallel Lines //

Abbey Lee Kershaw @ Next, cover by Richard Prince styled by Tamara Rothstein. Bottom left you can see a little scar on the magazine that travelled a lot before arriving at home here. Got POP in hands, finally found it in town. It took a while till it arrived at our local bookstore but it's here, big and beautiful. Our copy suffered a little from travelling to our half-godforsaken city but it's still amazing to have it, smell it, read it, look at it over and over again. A magazine really becomes a magazine the day you can touch ... [Lire la suite]

Wichita

Lindsey Wixson @ Marilyn (NY) We could do it but we're not going to wax on Wixson this morning. Let's put it simple and direct to the point and leave the lyrical mood for another day. We could go on for hours it seems, we could go endlessly. From first polas we got from Marilyn NY last Summer to meeting her for five seconds after Miu Miu to the news pouring these days... our interest in Lindsey's career never stopped to grow, our love for her look never found any of the usual limits, our respect for her work is too high to compare....

There's no Legend without Controversy

    Myf Shepherd @ Next (Paris) and Katlin Aas @ Marilyn (Paris) Taken from Pop's latest issue, taken in the middle of nowhere it seems, like captured en catimini (by Mark Borthwick, fashionized by Vanessa Reid). Truth is known not to make too much noise but shocks rewrite the sense of truth everytime we need a new definition. Which is often salvatory for people who work around the notion of beauty. Myf Shepherd and Katlin Aas, together on a picture, in the red and yellow rays of light. Two worlds cross within the same... [Lire la suite]

Laila and Friends

      Laila Pudule, Kaya Wilkins and Deana Noop @ FM (London), Heather Koenitzer and Anna Tatton @ Bookings (London) The Return of the Independent Spirit. A title has never been that true. True to the atmosphere, true to the magazine (POP's brand new version), to the photographer Jason Evans and to all the young models featured in this story. As this is where we always put the strongest emphasis, we'll focus on the casting once again. Three FM girls including Laila Pudule (from 2B Models in Latvia and among our... [Lire la suite]
