Big coats, flat shoes and beautiful black and white photography. Finally got my hands on a copy of the latest issue of Italian Vogue and am trying to Fika things up today; plenty of coffee and this gorgeous Peter Lindbergh photoshoot should help (you can also see this story on Peter Lindbergh’s website HERE). In the 1990s, Lindbergh created the most iconic pictures of supermodels; and his timeless ‘white shirts on the beach’ shots are some of my favourite fashion photos, ever. Here he captures Amber Valetta, Carolyn Murphy, Helena Christensen, Milla Jovovich et al, walking the streets of New York.



There’s currently an exhibition of Peter Lindbergh’s work at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam (on till February 2017), which I’m hoping might transfer to London…

Always love a messy bun. Have a peaceful weekend.

  1. So good. I bought this mag for this shoot too, I love his work and esp with these middle aged babes! Also love how they carry off no make-up make-up, a little bit of a dark circle or laughter line just looks so chic on them.

  2. I am obsessed with the velvet blazer and pants!
    Can you kindly tell me who makes them?
    The best interpretation of the velvet trend!

  3. I adore seeing how these models of ‘my’ generation have aged. Beauty has no sell by date, and they prove that. The character and sheer gorgeousness in Tatiana Patitz’s face (fourth photo down) is gripping. I will have to have a copy of this magazine! Thanks for sharing, Alyson.

  4. …………..and I thought “Gentlewoman Style” was a new concept. It just now has a name -women have been dressing this way for decades so why have I only just caught on! All of these models look incredible and inspirational.

  5. Lovely shots. I’ve always liked the look of flat substantial shoes with…well..everything. Thanks Alyson. Been a rough week all round. Election hysteria… and I live in Canada not the US. And then the news that Leonard Cohen had died. Gulp. We thought he was immortal.

  6. Rotterdam is not far and a lovely city to visit. Daily flights to our own air port, take bus 33 to metrostation Meijersplein, metro E centre-bound, change there on line A,B or C to Eendrachtsplein, 5 mins. walk. Yes, I’m a local ­čÖé

  7. Beautiful… the young models of today are lovely, but these ladies put them in the shade. Those are the faces I want to see.Love the coats and shoes in the third pic, wish I could get hold of a copy of the magazine, but in my little corner of Greece foreign magazines are a fond memory now. The economic crisis has hit everything !
