Resort 2011 - hot hazy days
A resort is a place used for relaxation or recreation and that's exactly the feeling Stella gives us with her Resort 2011 collection. It breathes beach, having fun with your friends, lazy sunny Sunday afternoons. Forget about work, kick off those high heels shoes and put on your flip flops.
Choosing yet another outdoor setting for her Spring 2011 collection, Stella planted her models inside a New York garden, playing games, dancing away or having their photo taken in a faux photoshoot. The simplicity of silhouette, the structure, the combination of textures, it all looks and feels like Summer to me. Here are some shots to share the joy and bring you a little ray of Summer sunshine on this grey Sunday.

Rag & Bone, the name
A century-old British fixture, the rag and bone man was known for practicing the first form of recycling. The rag and bone man would travel by horse and cart (traditionally a Shire or Clydesdale), circling the neighborhood in search of scrap metal, old furniture, wood or anything else that he could sell or reuse to support himself. Children would come running at the shouts of "rag and bone" to collect sweets and candies in exchange for the items they loaded onto his cart.
Garbage collection began to supplant the rag and bone trade by the late 1970s, and today there are very few rag and bone men. As an homage to their pioneering ingenuity and conservation, rag & bone derived their name from this legendary practice.

Rag & Bone's spring 2011 campaign enlists four models, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sasha Pivovarova, Lily Aldridge and Edita Vikeviciute for do-it-yourself advertisements. The leading models took portraits of themselves as they donned the label’s latest collection and the fun and wild result speak for itself!

Fast and very tailored ladies on the runway @ Spijkers en Spijkers
Presenting their second SIS collection @ AIFW last night. 
Inspired by the first women in race sport and aviation S&S took Amelia Earhart as their muse. 
The whole collection looked very elegant and comfortable and instead of the sooo 2010 camouflage print they picked some clouds which looked refreshingly new. The jump/overallsuits made the whole picture complete! 
Fly me to the moon SIS, you did an amazing job, best collection till now!
