Twin's very first cover Shoot with Agyness Deyn and photographer Ben Weller for Issue 5.  Agyness rocks, she's the coolest girl ever and her accent is like a lullaby.  We had a magic team on this one which all seemed to be confirmed by Mother Nature at the end of the day who blessed us with the most epic double rainbow i've ever seen, we were all running knee deep through a wildflower meadow on a hillside in the rain to try to take pictures of it. This was followed by an incredible Hieronymus Bosch sunset that set whole sky was on fire as we drove back to London. Hair by Chi Wong & Make up by Shinobu Abe


Shoot for Issue 5 of Twin i worked on, shot by the main man Jason Kibbler on location in deepest darkest Brooklyn in NYC on the hottest day of the year in July! It was hot as hell out there, the sun beat down upon us like a witches broom. We drank the ice box dry three times and all lolled around in the air conned Winnebago silly with the heat like meerkats sheltering under Boabab trees. Yuri very kindly introduced us to dinosaur porn on X-tube in the interims between dressing. Who would have known a man dressed up as a pterodyctl could be so sexy.

I love the love in this shoot and god knows I love love, I go about it enough. Here is my favourite love poem ever it's called Cascando and it's the only one Samuel Beckett ever wrote. It kills me.


why not merely the despaired of
occation of

is it not better abort than be barren

the hours after you are gone are so leaden
they will always start dragging too soon
the grapples clawing blindly the bed of want
bringing up the bones the old loves
sockets filled once with eyes like yours
all always is it better too soon than never
the black want splashing their faces
saying again nine days never floated the loved
nor nine months
nor nine lives
saying again if you do not teach me I shall not learn
saying again there is a last
even of last times
last times of begging
last times of loving
of knowing not knowing pretending
a last even of last times of saying
if you do not love me I shall not be loved
if I do not love you I shall not love

the churn of stale words in the heart again
love love lovethud of the old plunger
pestling the unalterable
whey of words

terrified again
of not loving
of loving and not you
of being loved and not by you
of knowing not knowing pretending

I and all the others that will love you
if they love you
unless they love you

Simone Rochas's ridiculously beautiful show that i worked on again this season. People were crying which is always a good sign. The clothes were etheral and intricate...lace trapped under tulle and plastic, latex tee shirts over chiffon blouses and of course the floating block heeled jelly shoe debuting a brilliant ghostbusters green and boiled candy pink version. You can see the whole show here.

Ashish this season was so much fun, I loved the floral prints on prints and sequins on sequins. We thought it would be cool to lace real wild flowers into the old vintage army boots that were sourced for the show so it kinda looked like the girls were walkin through wildflower meadows on the runway.
You can see the complete show here.

The bottle that I designed for the Aboslut Vodka Visions project in Dublin. The main black and white  image is by dreamy sexpot photographer Mel Bles that we did together for Dazed ages ago and then i sat on the floor and cut stuff out for hours....meticulously working my way around ponies legs and animal fur and human hair and fingers (very tricky) to create the nostalgia collage including legends such as Marky Mark of new kids on the block fame in the Calvin Klein ads, then Baywatch where the women were  women and the men were actually also women, Eminem three times cos i love him, lil wayne three times cos i love him too, meerkats, punguins, pugs, Nancy Regan sitting on Mr.T's knee, ALF and some 'Saved by the bell' thrown in for good measure and then the finale of stars cut out of photocopied old porno playing cards consisting of some subtle tit and muff action.

All thanks to Bren and Richard at Small Print who curated the whole thing and were our dad's for the time that we resided in Dublin, they got us everything we needed from pritt stick to pizza to Sambuca. One of the lads on the trip Chaz of the grafitti duo 'The London Police' wrote a brilliant email with a synopsis on each person who took part, ... my favourite was about Bren....this is so good!

'And last but not least big cuddly Bren. If i caught you in bed with my sister i'd fucking tuck you in son!'

What a week and what a totally amazing thing to have been involved in, i loved every minute of it...the last thing i remember doing was a majorette routine with someone's crutch at Fallons pub near Francis street and it getting confiscated by the barman. Good Times.
