ALACARTER STYLE


Permanent Vacation. by Samantha

Permanent Vacation

A creative group of Western Coast Swedes has come together to form a fashion brand called Permanent Vacation. These beautiful Swedes also dabble in photography, play records, special design work clothes, collaborations, writing and styling for music videos. The clothing line is inspired by the ‘classic gentleman’s’ way of dressing; dapper, shapely, comfortable and useful, garments aimed to love, wear out and repair! Puss Puss!

MORE PARTYING AT PHILLIPS DE PURY… by David
IRVING PENN

IRVING PENN

I have just received an invitation through for another fantastic party at Phillips de Pury… they have an auction of Photographs coming up on the 16th of May here in London. Viewing starts on Saturday the 9th with a Reception from 5.00 to 8.00 PM. We can’t guarantee that Marc Newson will be there (sorry, Kelli!), but there will be work from some of my favourite photographers, including the likes of Paulo Roversi, Nick Knight, Robert Polidori and one by the lovely Mark Seliger of Heidi Klum as Jayne Mansfield (I mention this because I was actually photographed by Mark a year or so ago as Andy Warhol…!!). If you love photography as much as I do, make sure you get down there or check out their online catalogue for more information.

PEROU AND GRAZIA COME TO 40 Winks… by David
DITA BY PEROU

DITA VON TEESE BY PEROU

Yesterday we had one of my favourite photographers here… the marvellous Perou, shooting a story for British Grazia on writers Jake Arnott and Stephanie Theobald. The story should be published in a couple of weeks (around the 5th of May), so go buy!! Perou has kindly agreed to exhibit some of his work here at 40 WiNKS later this year, so keep reading.

The world of eugenio recuenco by David

PURE PHOTO PLEASURE

Spanish photographer Eugenio Recuenco is a genius!!
I have often seen and admired his work, but until very recently knew very little about him. Thanks to my ‘Muse of the Moment’, who sadly must remain nameless, but is currently holed up in a vampire infested village in Northern Italy and yet still manages somehow to smuggle out inspiring midnight missives, I am now something of a world authority on ER having just spent the last three hours on his website. I would recommend that you all do the same….

NEW ROCOCO
Here at alacarterstyle we always like get you invites to the very best parties and events… this week we are giving you the chance to attend the opening of Rita Nowak’s new show in Vienna. Rita is a dear friend of mine and a very talented artist, so pop down to Sotheby’s (the Vienna branch!!) this Thursday evening for the exclusive private view. Rita has asked me to say that you will only be admitted if you wear “light” colours… Why, I have no idea, but it’s her party. Enjoy!!

HOT SHOTS FROM MARC ROGOFF by David

Marc Rogoff

HOT SHOTS
Quite a few people have been getting in touch asking me who took the fantastic pictures for the 40 WiNKS website… the genius behind the camera is the charming Marc Rogoff. Marc is a hugely talented fashion photographer (he was shooting Kate Moss just the other day, but I think that might all be a bit hush hush, so keep it to yourselves…). He is also passionate about interiors, and I don’t think it will be long before his work is popping up in all the top interior design mags. I am hoping to be doing some more work with Marc very soon (wearing my model hat again!!), so will keep you posted on that. In the meantime, check out his website (www.marcrogoff.com)… particularly if you are looking for a really great photographer to shoot for you. Marc is the man!!
