RESEARCH, FIELD WORK, TRIAL & ERROR. [ VISUALISING THE UPCOMING SEASON ]

We helped style what we do best, vintage workwear pieces to help visualise a story for the upcoming ladies’ Cabourn x Lybro season. Our research into women at work during WW2 has lead us down this elegant pathway that painted a platform in the discourse of feminine identity. We are fascinated with the idea that women express their femininity, not only instinctually but in pushing our ability and intellects. That’s why we draw so much inspiration from the greatness that grew from this romantic era.

BY GOSH, WHERE HAVE OUR MANNERS GONE? PTJ FOR GOOD-MANNERS

It is our duty here is to point your noses towards goodness. We are pushing for a new, inconspicuous definition of that really overused word, ’luxury’. So here is our combined effort to continue expressing freedoms that come with existence. The freedom to continue in a climate of much political strangeness, and the freedom to show the world what goodness is really made of. Presenting, Good-Manners

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.

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.
