Last week, I wrote about the British "it" girls, Pixie & Peaches Geldoff and their friend, half-shaved-heiress Alice Dellal, conquering fashion, to the horror of many......
Today they received another blow, as fellow Brit girls, Agyness Deyn, Daisy Lowe and Eliza Cummings hit the catwalk at Anna Sui , with Agyness making her NY runway debut for this season, opening and closing the show.
British rock-star spawn, and current Marc Jacobs campaign muse, Daisy Lowe, also made an exclusive appearance at the show..... while fellow Brit, Eliza Cummings, who, along with her boyfriend Ash, poses provocatively on covers of the current Dazed and Confused, ID , and in the pages of Italian Vogue, also walked the show (in addition to her catwalk turns at Marc Jacobs and Rodarte.)
These shows are considered three of the most important shows in New York, and certainly, "the coolest". Anna Sui is also considered an important show, in terms of the fact that Stephen Meisel is said to informally cast it.
Marc Jacobs spoke after his show of wanting a return to individuality, as each each of the models in his show were given different, individual, hair and make-up looks.
Also, Katie Grand, talking about her new magazine, LOVE, says "Love the imperfect. You know it makes sense." Furthermore, in her editor's letter she writes. "No one is a sample size in the whole issue, and it's not so retouched" .(Read my post about Love Magazine here... http://chowderchunkybits.blogspot.com/2009/02/in-love-with-love.html
Clearly there is a movement back towards attitude and personality over perfection, and these girls are the first incarnations of that movement on the runway...
What do you think of them?
