FASHION AND ROCK N' ROLL
Jennifer Herrema is part of a rock n’ roll tribe. She is a mix of edgy, fantasy and tomboyish sexiness and has achieved an aesthetic that is unique while not avoiding the trashy. On the contrary. She embodies an essential element of uncompromising neo rock n’ roll style that delights me. Ripped jeans, hard-edged leather and metal, turquoise Cheyenne stones, multicoloured pastel furs, she is a living homage to the seventies and early eighties rock bands. She was an original CK One girl in the nineties, shot by Stephen Meisel, and has styled shoots for i-D and Nylon. Her look makes me think of Balmain and Christophe Decarnin’s collection of acid-washed denim and Sgt Pepper jackets. There is a certain similarity there. Decarnin has identified a very interesting era of fashion and has recreated it at the right moment. Thanks to him we can all look like a mixture of Jennifer Herrema and fierce chic groupie models on the pages of Paris Vogue! Anyway, I like Herrema and I like her music. You can’t help but be riveted by her style. She is obviously inspired from the past and her rock culture but it all seems very actual.
Happy weekend... I intend to not rush things and move with Sunday slowness! Tonight I will be sitting at Chisou, loving my Tori Karaage and the company of my best girl from Marrakech, B, a tireless traveller with an energetic mind.
