Fashion: The Gentlewoman Spring/Summer 2012

The newest issue of fabulous women's magazine The Gentlewoman landed on my doormat yesterday, and my god is it fabulous. For me, is it one of the most exciting and directional print publications available at the moment and in an age of digital saturation, it really is keeping print alive; with it's use of coated and uncoated paperstocks throughout, this tactile magazine enforces fashion in print. Ever the layout geek, I am obsessed with the simplistic use of the Futura typeface throughout and the modern and minimal editorials.

Appropriately flocked in one of the most important colours of Spring/Summer 2012, the latest issue's cover stars 90s uber-model, Christy Turlington, shot by Inez and Vinoodh. Also in the issue is a profile of the ever intriguing Tilda Swinton, a gorgeous beauty shoot featuring one of my favourite models, Sigrid Agren, very appropriate sport and power shoot featuring Australian model Julia, Nobis and a look at fashion photography's key players including super-agent Camilla Lowther of CLM.

For a look at the Spring/Summer 2011 issue of The Gentlewoman, featuring woman of the moment (year, decade...), Adele Atkins, click here.

Lifestyle: A new home for AMB.

I'll soon be moving out of my parents house to take on the scary world of mortgages, bills and co-habiting with my boyfriend - and I absolutely cannot wait!

I've been curating my Home Style board over on Pinterest for some time now, so head over there to see which pieces of furniture and colour palettes I'm coveting for my first home.

Of course I'll be sharing more inspiration, my home buys and before & after photos of the flat so keep your eyes peeled for some interior goodies!

Fashion: Vintage Vogue Covers

A few years ago, a good friend of my mother's was clearing out her house, preparing for a big move to the wilds of Cumbria. She called one evening, having discovered boxes of vintage Vogue, L'Officiel and Brides magazines in her attic and asked if I'd like them - she knew I'd give them a good home and treasure them dearly, so I jumped at the chance. Most of the issues date from the 1970s and are in impeccable condition, so I thoughr I'd share a few of my favourites covers with you - my particular favourite is the Silver Jubilee issue of British Vogue from 1976; I hope they do something equally as special for the Diamond Jubilee in June.
