A few days ago we posted about our work with taxidermist, Elle Kaye. We thought it would only be fair to give a shout out to the BROTHER behind this project, Johnny Colbert. Currently working as fashion photographer for WonderLuk, an upcoming fashion tech brand, Johnny is determined to branch out with his skills, hence this latest collaboration combining video, photography and journalism. We’re super excited and mega thankful for Johnny bringing us together with Elle, especially as he’s so talented. Watch this space and check out more of Johnny’s work here.

Ballad Of…Ginger Posh
We love the Ballad girls, and Thursday night marked the launch of their tenth issue (congrats!) at the Old Blue Last. Consisting of big 90’s tunes, chewy sweets and vodka shots, we were naturally in our element…
Our editor Beccy was chuffed with her Spice Girls memoir, matched with an INCREDIBLE illustration by Charlotte Hoyle.
The issue looks amazing, probably our favourite one to date, with beautiful shoots and interesting interviews.
Pick up a copy of the Sugar and Spice issue, as well as any you’ve missed from the Ballad Of website now.
S IS FOR STREETWEAR
We are big believers in print. The internet is great, but a magazine is a magazine y’know? Something you can hold in your hands, keep forever, collect and experience. Not just click, scroll through and forget. ANYWAY, we did a shoot for our upcoming S issue a few weeks ago and it’s starting to look real good. Do we show you now or make you wait to see it on actual printed paper? Our photographer Hannah sent over a few of the images last night and we figured, since they’ll probably end up looking completely different, we’d share these with you. Big shout out to our lovely models Hannah and Yasemin, and of course to the one and only super stylist Megan Munro.
Last night we sent our questions off to taxidermist Elle Kaye, to feature in the upcoming ‘S’ issue. We don’t like to give too much away, but you can check out Elle and her work here whilst keeping your eyes peeled for the published interview!
We love this genius shoot ‘Girls In Print’ by Rebecca Naen and Hayley McCarthy. It’s rare you get to see an all female street wear shoot done so well, and we can only hope our one tomorrow is half as good as theirs! Check out the rest of the series here.
This Saturday our boy Jim Howells hung out with the Deap Vally girls ahead of their Bristol show. Their debut album SISTRIONIX was named album of the week by Spin earlier this month and the duo are on a mega European tour until the end of the year. Formed in 2011, Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards hail from San Fernando Valley, California. We’re mega fans and can’t wait to read the interview. Get tickets and see more from Deap Vally here.
When these illustrations dropped into our inbox last week we couldn’t believe our luck that Lisa wanted to contribute to the next issue of Sister. A recent graduate from Manchester School of Art, her graduate collection has received press from Vogue, Glamour and Susie Bubble. Pretty impressive. We love her textured visuals and can’t wait to see what she produces for Sister! Check out more of Lisa’s work here
This woman is SIXTY SEVEN?! Cher you are a time defying goddess. I only hope that when I’m your age I can still rock tartan and fishnets. I mean I can tell you now I won’t be on my TWENTY FIFTH studio album, but I can’t say many others will be either. Bow in the presence of greatness people.
