Cara Delevingne For Topshop

Fashion IT girl Cara Delevigne, has just landed her first first ever solo campaign for Topshop! This isn’t the first time the quirky supermodel has been involved with the highstreel giants. She’s walked in their Unique shows and she also appeared in the Kate Moss campaign back in 2010. I’m super excited about this collection because she’s definitely my favourite model. She’s juggled a gazillion things this year and still manages to keep things fun and bizarre. She’s just a ball of positive energy! Other than the fact that she has the most perfect eyebrows, she’s also got the voice of angel. Do you remember her duet with Will Heard? It was on repeat on my iPod for ages. (Listen to it here)

Sir Philip Green commented on the campaign saying “It (was) fitting to have a fabulous, young British star such as Cara at the epicentre of our campaign. I am hopeful and confident that this will be the beginning of another strong relationship for TOPSHOP.”

The collection is in Topshop stores now.

Stay Junior.

20131222_183900

I sat down with the super cool Yasmine Al Naif to discuss the launch of her new line, “Juniors be Junior”. We talked about her plans for 2014, the launch of her new website, and why London is her favourite city. 

Stay Junior Kids.

What inspired you to start your own collection of snap backs and bominner jackets?

Well, what inspired me to start the brand Juniors Be Junior was a love I have for simple urban fashion accessories. Then realising that there is a lack of online platforms for people, ultimately males, to buy funky/edgy, affordable staple items.  So with these two thoughts in mind, it just made sense to create them myself.  The first two products I’ve started with are snap backs and Bominner Jackets which will be followed by a range of hoodies, socks, boxers and… you’ll have to go to the website to find out.

What does Juniors be Junior stand for as a brand and what was behind the name?

The brand really is all in the name.  Juniors Be Junior is hip, playful and aims at keeping everyone looking lively and .. obviously Junior.  All of the JBJ pieces will energise your look and keep you looking up to date.  All the time.

 How would you describe your own personal style?

Always comfortable – A bit of boho chic – Edgy?  How would YOU describe my style Striped and Spotted? You’re the fashionista.

We saw a sneak peek of your JBJ photo shoot and everything looks fantastic! What are your plans for the brand in 2014?

In 2014, the website will be launched, new products will be introduced and some crazy collaborations will be taking place.  You should definitely join us on set for the next shoot because the last one was really fun! 

Where are your designs sold?

At the moment you can contact me directly for orders/purchases: yasmeen@juniorsbejuniors.com. You can see all products on the Facebook page ‘Juniors Be Junior’. The website will be launched by the end of February 2014 with global shipping.  Boutiques in Dubai/London so far will be stocking the products, and i’ll be announcing where next month.

What are you listening to these days?

Golden Silvers, The Purple Bottle, Steak Knives, Lorde, Mr SoMo.

What is your favourite city and why?

 London. I love winter and in London its winter 90% of the time. I always find something new to do, somewhere interesting to eat, a new beautiful street that i’ve never seen before… and you meet people from every corner of the globe. Its also where I consider home.

John_and_Yoko_1Rolling Stone Interviewer: “Why can’t you be alone without Yoko?”

John Lennon: “But I can be alone without Yoko, but I just have no wish to be. There’s no reason on earth why I should be alone without Yoko. There’s nothing more important than our relationship, nothing. And we dig being together all the time. Both of us could survive apart but what for? I’m not going to sacrifice love, real love for any whore or any friend or any business, because in the end you’re alone at night and neither of us want to be. and you can’t fill a bed with groupies. It doesn’t work. I don’t want to be a swinger. I’ve been through it all and nothing works better than to have someone you love hold you”

Stole it from the Punk Poet.

You know how sometimes super models pull of the most minimal of looks and still look fab? The perfect example is Kate Moss in leather pants and a white t-shirt; it’s really all in that “I don’t give a f***” vibe that she always gives off. I’ve read quite a few articles now on this effortless look and it all stems down to one woman; Patti Smith. There’s an entire article about her in this month’s Marie Claire. I’ve seen her look book on the New York times website too. The rockstar is 66 today, and still wears biker boots, leather  pants and beanies. I’m not going to go into detail about which bitch stole whose look, but take a look for yourself. a_4x-11a_4x-vertical z_Patti-SmithPatti_Robert
