Barbara Hulanicki For Topshop

Topshop is renowned for working with style heroes of the past, present and future, and today marks the 'oldest' youngest collaboration yet, in it's coming together with Barbara Hulanicki.Continuing from where she left off in the 70s, Barbara Hulanicki re-joins the fashion world with an exciting series of clothes that is fresh and full of energy.

Clothes are brought up to date by modern prints and edgier shapes for a new generation of fans, making Hulanicki one of the most influential and inspirational style icons of the Twentieth Century.

Craig Ward + Jason Tozer / Creative Review Subs Page

Craig Ward + Jason Tozer / Creative Review Subs Page

Craig Ward has teamed up with photographer Jason Tozer again to produce Creative Reviews subs page.The brief was to 'Make Creative Review a part of your world'The technique Craig used employs 'anamorphic perspective' theory and, in an interview with Felice Varini he says he uses 'nothing more than simple maths' to create his compositions. The maths Varini referenced turned out to be rather less simple than what Craig had hoped for.So....they came up with plan B. Craig wanted to create something clean and graphic and slightly out of place in a real world setting and the reflective properties of fluorescent gaffer tape turned out to be the perfect material.Check out the results of Craig and Jasons exploits here, and no doubt all over the web soon.
