With the Spring ’15 shows about to barrel into town, we’re planning a restorative escape to the country. Nothing too out-there, mind you. We like to rough it without looking rough around the edges. We glamp, not camp (even if we’re still not sure glamp is a real word). Conveniently, there’s been no shortage of outdoorsy style inspiration, what with the summer’s never-ending music festival circuit. Back in June, Glastonbury found It Brits like Edie Campbell and Suki Waterhouse striking poses in utilitarian threads and rubber Wellies. And just last weekend, Mulberry and co. set up their tents at the Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire to debut Cara Delevingne’s new bags for the brand. Many of the recent menswear and Resort collections, meanwhile, seemed ready-made for high-end hiking trips and woodsy bonfire gatherings. Canvas parkas and waterproof Mackintoshes turned up at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Julien David. And J.W. Anderson made an impression at Loewe with a debut collection of sturdy cuffed jeans and hardworking leather accessories photographed by Jamie Hawkesworth on rocky terrain outside Cadiz, Spain.
Here, what to wear on your next, ahem, glamping trip.
The Fall campaigns are slowly rolling out, and tonight we can reveal that Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevigne are the headlining faces of the Fall ’14 Burberry campaign. Delevingne, a Burberry ad vet (her first campaign for the house was Spring 2011), flashes her signature smile in the Mario Testino-lensed snaps, while Waterhouse, who’s making her ready-to-wear campaign debut, strikes a more pensive pose in the brand’s artisanal Fall wares. “It’s such a dream come true to be part of this Burberry campaign!” Waterhouse told Style.com. “A special moment that I’ll always remember.” We’d bet up-and-coming male model Oli Green, who has previously walked in Burberry Prorsum shows, won’t soon forget his time on set working with the British beauties, either. Have a first look at the campaign here, exclusively on Style.com.
Label: Dominic Jones
Need to Know: Dominic Jones unveiled his tenth collection of costume jewelry during his London fashion week presentation this weekend. The five-time NewGen winner’s Fall ’14 affair surprised attendees with a soft, new aesthetic, as well as a performance by his longtime friends Emma Chitty and Jon Jackson. Lit by one spotlight, Chitty—who was dressed in a floor-length lace dress and Jones’ new baubles—slowly danced to an electronic guitar, introducing the audience to the hypnotic beauty of Jones’ Fall ’14 inspiration: the orchid.
Having launched in 2009 with business partner Alice Dellal, Jones’ range is best known for its signature, large-scale, and often dark, aggressive pieces. This season, however, he revealed his lighter side. The designer told us that he views the orchid, his latest muse, not as a girly or meek plant but as a mystical, strong, and beautiful flower. This is precisely what he wanted to communicate through his collection. Detailed images of his work are offered in the Fall lookbook (above), which stars Suki Waterhouse, Dellal, and Ellie Rowsell. Jones’ personal favorite Fall wares are the smallest, including delicate orchid earrings, rings, and pendants.
He Says: “Flowers are not something you would associate with me, but orchids fascinate me very much. The symmetry of the blossom and its individuality are beautiful, and it’s interesting that orchids share a similar growth pattern with the human face.”
Where to Find It: Net-a-Porter, Liberty, Joseph, Harvey Nichols, and 10 Corso Como, among others.
