Social Suicide's new AW09 collection entitled 'dictators of fashion' is a collection in pure wool flannels and cashmeres, trimmed in leathers and silks, made by hand and inspired by leaders of men.
Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, Charles de Gaulle, Benito Mussolini, Nelson Mandela, Chairman Mao, General Kalashnikov, Malcolm X, John F. Kennedy, Fidel Castro, Margaret Thatcher and Joseph Stalin.
A dozen uncompromising, single-minded, passionate, visionary & utterly inspiring suits.
Someone please buy me Castro's hunting jacket :D ......
Fauxreel's portrait-based works embrace the charm found in the urban jungles we live in. Finding a relation between the landscape and culture of the city, these portraits embody the intimate traits of the city, personifying them into one identifiable character.

While in London at the weekend, I visited the KK Outlet in Shoreditch to view designer Keetra Dean Dixon's first solo exhibition there. I fell in love with her work only last week and managed to see a small collection of some of her pieces at Kessels Kramers design studio/exhibition space and shop at Hoxton Square. I highly suggest you check out her website, or even the exhibition. I especially love her photobooth project!

This is a beautifully compiled publication which is almost a photo journal, following the journey of French photographers Aline Diepois & Thomas Gizolme as they travel across the American desert and record their journey with some beautiful images.
One of the authors shoots with a Leica. The other with a Polaroid. Both indulge in drugs, alcohol and other substances while they encounter a very strange cast of characters in remote communities and random encampments of outcasts and misfits, real or imagined. I bought this recently at magma books in manchester. Well worth a look!
