La Garçonne

My style inspiration of the moment is Liberty's creative consultant Yasmin Sewell. To me, she is a truly natural beauty and has an innate sense of individual style that marks her out from the often predictable fashion crowd. I love her idiosyncratic mix of boyish jackets and classic cut dresses. But most of all, it is lovely to see someone with such a beautiful smile!

She also wrote a wonderful piece for Elle UK on spirituality which is well worth a read. And take a look at her blog over at Vogue.

At one point in my life I listened ONLY to Marvin Gaye for three years. - Yasmin Sewell

Empty House

Empty House from Sandra Freij on Vimeo.

Sandra Freij's short film for Lula issue 10 is my idea of perfection, jumping on the bed with my girlfriends surrounded by hundreds of white balloons and feathers falling from the sky. It reminds me of Sofia Coppola's ethereal portrayal of Jeffrey Eugenides's novel The Virgin Suicides, one of my favourite films and great for spring fashion inspiration what with all the romantic, lace dresses and 1970's references.
