Matvey Lykov at Thom Browne. Bonjour mes amis! Here’s the final lot of photos from my disposable camera that I shot while I was in Paris in June. It’s the last reminder of 2013’s summer, which has been a crazy few months. I’m not that big on astrology *lies* but is there a weird thing happening with the planets right now? Because everybody I know is acting completely mental in the best possible way but also in the worst possible way. Mercury rising? The fall of Jupiter? Something going on with Uranus? Everything’s changing in New York. Who knows whatClick to Continue!
Matvey Lykov at Berluti. Oh hi guysssss, I’ve just developed my third disposable camera, this time from the Paris shows, and these are the results. Once again they’re extremely hit and miss, but when they’re on, they are so very on.

For my final series of interviews with Tom Bull, I headed backstage to the Perry Ellis show this afternoon to shoot the scene.

But the best cameo of all came from Nicki Minaj who walked out the back straight after the Betsey JohnstonClick to Continue!
Nicki Minaj. Bad news first: I missed two really important shows today, and I swear it wasn’t my fault – Thom Browne, due to Michael Bastian running late, and Marc by Marc Jacobs, due to it running crazy early. I caught a cab down from the Lincoln Center, arrived at the Armory at 8:07pm for an 8:00pm start, and the audience was already filing out of the venue. I mean, come on! Since when did an evening show ever start on the dot at its scheduled time? The good news is that I was hanging around outside the Lincoln CenterClick to Continue!
Photos: HommeModel The invitation said it all: it was an inflatable globe with a map of Hawaii on one side and a scene depicting a tiger stalking some tropical fish on the other. An origami boat sat on each seat. Beach Boys heralded the start of the show, and the Russian model Matvey Lykov walked out in an island print blazer with full-legged white pants and sandals – a metaphorical take on vacation dressing this was not. Made up like matinee idols with finger curls and bronzed cheekbones, the boys wore every conceivable summer cliché – primary blues and yellows,Click to Continue!
