Baby it’s cold outside

Though fashion’s fanfare is currently en route to Paris for the SS/11 collections, the nip in the air means we’re focused on what to wear for warmth right now. And judging by their winter campaign – shot by Josh Olins and styled by Kate Phelan – Topshop could have the answer.

This series of soft and autumnal images stars Ajak Deng (she of Prada catwalk fame) and Gwen Loos in an abundance of cable knits, shearling capes, camel hues and leather (or pleather). We’re coveting the hooded scarves and heavy-duty satchels – but love that the campaign is full of ideas that don’t cost a thing. Just add a turn-up here and a belted skirt there, layer like crazy and you’ll be bang on trend.

Shine A Light

Twin may just have found a new favourite gallery – Atlas on Dorset Street. One of the few London art spaces to deal exclusively in fine art photography, it’s the official agent of Magnum photographers – displaying (and selling) the works of masters like Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

The current exhibit is from French photographer Dominique Tarlé. ‘Exile: The Making of Exile on Main Street’ is an intimate snapshot of the lives of The Rolling Stones over a six month period in the early Seventies. Taken while they were putting together their stellar tenth album, expect brooding black and white shots of the guitar-slinging Mick, Keith and the boys surrounded by gangs of gorgeous, good time women.

‘EXILE: The Making of Exile on Main Street’ is at the Atlas Gallery, 49 Dorset Street, London until the 31st August.

Keith, Anita, Parsons, Telecaster, 1971.

Mick and Keith, 1971.

Knocking (Keith at the Door), 1971.
