Fashspiration of the Week

Fashspiration of the week // Kurt and Courtney – a glam take on dishevelled 90s grunge

Whatever the haters say about Courtney Love, she can sure shift a few dresses. Her new clothing range of customised vintage pieces, Never the Bride, repackages the shredded glamour of Hole’s sartorial heyday for whole new generation of riot grrrls. Designing aside, Love is a hugely inspirational muse. Last season, Meadham Kirchoff were her biggest fans, […]

Fashspiration of the week // Memoirs of a Geisha: Turning Japanese? We really think so…

Loosely defined as the influence of Japanese art on the West and more specifically in France, where Japanese wood-block prints inspired European impressionist painters (bear with me) Japonisme is a MAJOR reference buzz word for SS13. So what does this mean for us dedicated followers of fashion? It means that if Christopher Kane, Miuccia Prada […]

That’s right Dickens fans – the new trailer for the latest adaptation of Great Expectations hit the web this week, starring Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham. If you feel like […]

Fashspiration of the week // Juliette Lewis as Mallory in Natural Born Killers

Here at Le Blow we love a dysfunctional 90’s icon so who better for this week’s style inspiration than Juliette Lewis? Granted, Patricia Arquette (Alabama in True Romance) took the kitsch sweetheart-on-the-run crown but Juliette (Mallory in Natural Born Killers) took the sexy but violent lunatic vibe to new commendable heights. SEE LE BLOW’S 5 […]
