THE FLIGHT TO THE INCONSPICUOUS / WHAT DOES LUXURY MEAN TODAY?

THE FLIGHT TO THE INCONSPICUOUS / WHAT DOES LUXURY MEAN TODAY?

There is a shift towards a new definition of the word ’luxury’, thanks to you guys, the Ponytail Journal readers... Those who seek subtlety and do not want obvious branding. So are we enough of a demographic to count as a percentage? Branding expert @mrpinot explains how the concept of luxury is developing into something exciting.

SEAHORSES. [ CABOURN X LAVENHAM COMING ATCHA FOR WINTER 16 ]

We are proud to release the latest Nigel Cabourn collaboration with Lavenham which has seen the two brands working together within their own home turf in Britain. We travelled to Holy Island, a few clicks north of the design studio in Newcastle to shoot the upcoming looks for the horse-y winter situation next year. If you take a look closely, you’ll find all the lovely Cabourn hardware like the cameraman clips, sitting alongside the classic Lavenham snap buttons and quilting. It’s like playing hopscotch with a childhood pal, simple and fun as that.

THE ALL FEMALE PASTRY DATE. [ W’MENSWEAR ]

The meeting of three really rad women, strangers at the time, from three corners of the Earth, connected by one thing. All that tingles in the air is the crunching of viennoiserie, syncopated by the ting of spoons clashing with coffee cups, and the start of conversational discovery - people trying their best to relate, be relatable, share joy, and give some kind of meaning to existence.

ON THE RADAR: SESSÙN’S OUTERWEAR THIS WINTER / VOGUE

We’re delighted to see French label Sessùn coming forward with a super military-inspired outerwear collection. Think about heavy military coats in virgin wool, tailored to a super feminine shape to bring back elegance to the silhouette... And they didn’t miss a beat in bringing out the cable knit turtleneck back (respect).

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN CONTOURING BROKE THE INTERNET / VOGUE

It’s a fact, contouring is the word of the moment for us women, but is it going to be forever relevant? Of course a little part of us wants to look Hollywood at best, but I’m here to say that the answer can’t possibly be masking our skin. Besides, IRL, wearing it thick is not going to be good for your skin in the long run.
PONYTAIL + BACKYARD BILL DO PARIS.

PONYTAIL + BACKYARD BILL DO PARIS.

Presenting you our favourite things to do in Paris. Every stone surface, marble floor, forged iron fence, grandaddy fruit tree, and crack in the pavement is a magnificent mark of time, and I think the French are right to be preserving it with a mighty stubborn foot. So we tip our hat to inspirational juju that’s rooted in Paris, and the many colourful characters who explore the Universe in a wonderfully French light.

WE GO BACKSTAGE WITH (RE)VISION SOCIETY.

We all are responsible for our destiny through our many little choices that in fact set us on a future path, a trajectory, if you like. The founders of (re)vision society are thinking in a way that could transform manufacturing and the future of industry into a much more efficient, and realistic model. So we went to see their entire design and manufacturing process to get an idea of how it all works and how the system is bound for collapse.

PONYTAIL JOURNAL + BACKYARD BILL DO NYC.

Welcome to PTJ’s New York city. I’m sure you’ve seen a bunch about it on the internet, or perhaps watched your fair share of Law and Order, but my New York city is a series of personal interactions with some wonderful folk who define the great hub. Last month we teamed up with our pal Bill Gentle ( or Backyard Bill ) to eat and hop our way through the wild city for Farfetch.

A HOLY ISLAND AFFAIR. / EDITORIAL

We travelled up to the salty and historic land of Holy Island in Northern England, to document some of the newest additions to the Nigel Cabourn vintage archive. We’ve patch-worked Fearnought jackets, WWII beastly overcoats, and some fantastic knitwear together to get you geared up for the cold weather.
