One of the best magazines I have bought recently is Tank Magazine.
Flicking through magazine in WHSmith's today, I thought "do not buy one, save your money." Then... I bought Tank magazine! One that I recognised from following their twitter, facebook and instagram pages, I couldn't resist buying this seasons issue, the first time I had bought Tank Magazine, now up their on my list of favourites! When flicking through Tank briefly I spotted this AMAZING editorial which persuaded me to buy the magazine! 'A step-to-step guide to making a frame seating', talking you through the steps of building a chair including all of the fashion essentials you may need; things such as: a Celine coat, Marques Almeida jeans, J.W Anderson jumper and Prada dress. Along with amazing styling and photography, this editorial includes witty instructions on how to put your garments and accessories to use whilst making the chair.  Overall, a great magazine and one that I would highly reccomend, Tank also includes an editorial spread by Sanna Helena Berger and articles on Chanel couture and Cedric Charlier.

WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE….

 PHOEBE PHILO 

"My work has nothing to do with the physics of women, but their power. My job is to make them even stronger. In popular culture , they are very sexualized and I do not like it . I love the simplicity reassuring . I want to go against the idea that women are always busy to seduce. " - Phoebe Philo
Reminiscing over Phoebes Philo's latest collection at Celine has been something I have been doing a lot recently. Philo's clean, modern and sharp aesthetic is what makes her so amazing, and one of my personal favourite designers. From zips on the knee in 2012 to fur lined Birkenstocks in 2013 and her colourful handpainted prints and geometric heels for this season, there are elements of her collections that stay in my mind. This season her amazing tailored coats, split dresses and elongated, ribbed sleeves on tops and wide leg pants are examples all of things that I loved this season.  Not only is she an amazing designer but Phoebe Philo also has her own amazing sense of personal style. One of the most anticipated looks of the Celine show each season may be the final one, Phoebe herself. Usually wearing trousers and a knitted jumper, Philo always look casual, chic and cool. 
A women who's style is recognisable and always reinventive, Phoebe Philo is one of the best female designers of today, one who plays a crucial part in the fashion world. Her ability to create a strong and stylish woman every seaon is one not many do so well. Philo puts clothing on women making them feel powerful, strong yet still feminine and romantic; When I grow up I want to be the woman who she creates!
