The Texture Labb

(Photography by  Danish photographer Flemming Leitorp)

This is a cheeky sneak preview of a shoot that will be appearing in the upcoming issue of Labb Magazine, The Texture Labb. They only just got these shots in the office yesterday so it's lovely of them to send them over for us to look at.

Labb is all about the new, vibrant and upcoming people in design and, being based in Birmingham, is able to seek and focus on talent outside of London. Also, the submissions for content are open to everyone so it is a great platform for emerging talent with a leaning towards high fashion.
I love this preview shoot, though it reminds me so much of the texture shoot by Grace Coddington which is seen in The September Issue, especially the last 'bin bag, but it looks great' dress, this one is by Barbara I Gongini. Did I ever mention how much I love Grace Coddington by the way? I think she's a genius, plus she grew up exactly where I did so there's hope for me yet...

Anyway, that's beside the point, it's the little things I love about this shoot, namely the accessories. They add to and enhance the dark, textured clothing and bring out something extra. My favourite is the silver fox ring in the image with the hood, that is exactly what's missing from my life at the moment... It is by Bjorg Jewellery who's online shop is under construction unfortunately and I don't know where stocks them, darn. But I can daydream right?

The angular, woven jewellery would match perfectly with Derek Lawlor's dresses too I think.

The Texture Labb will be available Worldwide on the 7th of June, until then why not check out their website and previous issue online here...
