The Clothes Maiden A journal  for  the  creative  and  fashionable  minds  

£2.00 Edition 3. Oct/Nov 2011


A journal for the fashionable and creative minds.


E

very edition  of  The  Clothes  Maiden  I  have  created  so  far   has  always  been  my  favourite,  but  this  time  round  this  one   has  been  extra  special.   When  putting  it  together,  it  reminded  me  of  when  The   Clothes  Maiden  was  just  a  simple  blog,  blogging  about  all   kinds  of  fashion  from  around  the  world.   The  blog  I  started  just  to  put  all  my  inspiration  and  ideas  all   in  to  one  place,  so  I  could  stop  bookmarking  page  after  page.   This  edition  features  stunning  work  from  fashion  illustrator   Niki  Pilkington,  where  I  also  had  the  absolute  pleasure  to   interview  her  as  well. The  pages  you  are  about  to  read  also  feature  an  interview   with  Killdarling  creator,  Sam  Klemick.  Each  page  is  some-­‐ thing  different  for  you  to  discover.   I  hope  you  enjoy  this  edition  just  as  much  as  the  last  one,  I   had  so  much  fun  putting  it  together,  and  thank  you  everyone   for  taking  your  time  out  to  be  involved  with  Edition  3  of  The   Clothes  Maiden

Holly Howe Holly  Howe’s  collection  is  a  contemporary,  eye  catching  

boutique jewellery  label  that  has  been  out  for  just  over  3   months.  The  designer,  Holly  Simpson-­‐Howe  is  from  Dun-­‐ edin,  New  Zealand  and  she  is  only  23  years  old  which  is   an  inspiration. Before  Holly  came  up  with  her  label  she  completed  a   Product  Design  Degree  and  then  in  2009  she  moved  on   to  Jewellery  and  Metalsmithing  paper,  with  this  under   her  belt  she  was  inspired  to  design  her  own  products   and  go  on  to  launch  The  Holly  Howe  Collection. Her  autumn/winter  2011  collection  is  very  exciting  with   some  stunning,  unique  pieces  of  jewellery.  Holly  takes  on   simple  geometric  shapes  such  as  pyramids  and  makes   them  into  dazzling  necklaces  and  alluring  rings. With  an  expensive  look  but  affordable  prices  the  rings   are  to  die  for!  Especially  the  four  diamond  sterling  silver   ring  which  gives  one  a  look  of  sophistication.   Like  Holly  herself,  the  label  is  based  in  Dunedin,  New   Zealand  and  she  has  her  collection  in  many  impressive   places  such  as:  Angel  Divine  and  Guilty  as  Sin  all  based  in   New  Zealand. You  can  view  Holly  Howe’s  collection  on  her  Facebook   page  and  you  can  buy  her  beautiful  jewellery  online. Holly  Howe’s  collection  is  yet  to  have  overseas  stockist   but  we  hope  that  time  comes  soon  as  we  would  love  to   see  her  collection  here  in  the  UK.

When  asked  about  the  brand,  Sam  says; ”Killdarling  is  clothing  for  tea  parties  and  after  parties.  For  trips  to  Paris  and  trips  to  the  mailbox.  It  is  for  the  girl   who  has  had  enough  of  rainbows,  unicorns  and  Prince  Charming.  For  the  girl  who  doesn’t  care  if  she  loses  a  shoe   at  the  ball.  For  the  girl  who  throws  the  other  shoe  at  Prince  Charming,  takes  off  with  the  hot  valet  guy  who  parked   her  pumpkin  carriage,  and  heads  with  him  to  the  afterparty.  Barefoot.  Killdarling  is  made  for  mischief  and  adven-­‐ ture.” Tell  us  a  bit  about  yourself? I  am  originally  from  Miami,  I  grew  up  wearing  barely  any  clothes  because  it’s  just  so  damn  hot.  I  think  a  lot  of  my   inspiration  comes  from  that,  the  most  frequently  made  comment  to  me  is:  “Sam,  did  you  forget  your  pants  again?”   I  like  short  dresses  and  long  t-­‐shirts!  Sometimes  I  am  very  loud  and  goofy,  I  like  to  play  with  my  friends,  draw,   colour  and  build  forts. I  absolutely  love  your  dresses-­  when  did  it  all  start?  Where  did  the  name  come  from?

Smitten &  Hazel  Jewellery  

Smitten and  Hazel  began  back  in  2010  as  a  creative  outlet  for  two  girls  from  Illinois  with  a  graph-­‐

ic design  background.  Their  small  blog  quickly  grew  into  an  all  craft  and  DIY  inspiration  source   and  now  it  is  slowly  shifting  to  a  handmade  jewellery  and  accessory  shop.  Smitten  &  Hazel  love  all   things  creative  and  hope  to  focus  on  that  more  in  their  blog. The  Early  Fall  2011  Necklace  collection  encompasses  changing  colours  of  autumn,  rich  penny  red   and  muted  patina  tones,  along  with  few  pops  of  bright  gold  and  electric  blue.  Still  playful  in  bunt-­‐ ing  shapes  and  various  triangles.  When  we  asked  them  about  their  latest  look  book  they  said; “I  love  using  antique  brass  metals  and  this  time  switched  things  up  and  used  matching  copper  for   the  penny  necklaces.  This  has  been  a  fun  collection  to  create,  I  couldn't  feel  more  accomplished   when  it  was  all  ready  for  viewing.”-­‐  Smitten  &  Hazel

These lovely  little  necklaces  start  from    £6.56,  and  are   available  from  their  Etsy  shop;   www.etsy.com/shop/smittenandhazel

An interview with Fashion illustrator, Niki Pilkington

So there  was  one  week  in  September  ,  it  was  London  Fashion  Week,  I  was   there,  I  had  a  ball  and  as  I  was  getting  from  one  show  to  the  next  I  walked  past   Topshop  on  Oxford  Street.  To  my  surprise,  I  saw  Niki  Pilkington’s  stunning  il-­‐ lustrations  in  the  front  window  beaming  back  at  me.  Each  of  her  illustrations   ™‡ƒ”‹‰ƒ†”‘’†‡ƒ†‰‘”‰‡‘—•‘—–ϐ‹–ˆ”‘–Š‹•‡™•‡ƒ•‘•…‘ŽŽ‡…–‹‘Ǥ ™ƒ–‡† –‘ϐ‹†‘”‡‘—–‘–Š‹•‹–‡”‡•–‹‰‹ŽŽ—•–”ƒ–‘”ǡ•‘”‡ƒ†‘–‘ϐ‹†‘—–™Šƒ–‹-­‐ spires  Niki,  and  basically  get  a  feel  of  what  a  typical  day  of  hers  is  like.

26


1) Tell us  a  bit  about   yourself,  and  when  did  your   passion  for  art  begin? I'm  a  24  year  old  Welsh  illustrator.  Drawing   has  always  been  a  big  part  of  what  I  am  &  what   I've  wanted  to  become.  My  uncle's  a  successful   illustrator  in  Reykjavik,  Iceland  &  since  I  was  little   I've  always  watched  what  he  does  in  ore.  It  was  seeing   him  that  really  taught  me  that  it  was  possible  to  have  a   career  doing  what  you  love.  I  went  though  all  the  usual   routes  of  education  -­‐  GCSE,  A-­‐Level,  Art  Foundation,   then  I  specialised  in  Fashion  Promotion  &  Illustra-­‐ tion  as  a  degree  at  Ravensbourne,  London.  After   ‰”ƒ†—ƒ–‹‰™‹–Šƒϐ‹”•–…Žƒ••ȋŠ‘•Ȍ†‡‰”‡‡‹ 2009,  I  am  happy  to  say  that  I'm  loving   every  minute  of  what  I  do.

ʹȌ Take us  through  a   typical  day  of  yours... I  don’t  have  a  set  routine,  it  just  depends   on  what  I’m  working  on  at  the  time,  when  I’m   in  North  Wales,  then  I  try  to  make  the  most  of   being  in  such  a  beautiful  place.  I  try  to  go  for  a  run   ‹–Š‡‘”‹‰ƒ†ϐ‹–‹ƒ•ƒ›™ƒŽ•ƒ• …ƒǦ ǯ two  minutes  away  from  the  sea,  so there’s  no  shortage  of  ‘thinking  space’  I’ll  usually  take   my  sketchbook  &  a  tin  of  Derwent  pencils  with  me  &   get  some  ideas  down  on  paper.  I  then  spend  most   of  my  day  working  from  my  studio  which  is  just   down  the  road  from  my  house.  If  I’m  in  London   or  Cardiff,  then  I’ll  spend  my  spare  time  out   photographing  girls  &  visiting  galleries   and  coffee  shops.

27


3) Who  are  these  gor-­ geous  girls  that  you  draw? My  illustrations  are  mix  of  reality  &  my   imagination.  Working  from  photo  reference,   I  can  modify  existing  photos  by  combining  them   with  my  own  photography  in  order  alter  the  com-­‐ position,  clothing,  expressions,  style  &  gestures  etc.  I   studied  fashion  promotion  and  illustration  as  a degree,  &  because  of  this,  my  work  is  very  fashion   orientated,  so  I’m  a  sucker  for  photographing  cool   looking  girls  when  I’m  out  and  about  -­‐  I  do  this  as   often  as  possible,  so  I  have  thousands  of  photos   of  girls,  but  I  also  work  heavily  from  what  I   imagination  the  girl  could  look  like,  I  like   to  think  this  keeps  my  work  looking   fresh.

28


4) I   read  that  maga-­ zines  inspire  you  a  lot,   does  anything  else?  If  so  what? It  may  sound  obvious,  but  the  person  I’m   drawing  is  the  biggest  inspiration  for  what  I’m   drawing.  Whether  I’m  working  from  found  im-­‐ ages,  or  on  personal  commissions,  for  me,  the  most   important  part  of  my  work  is  that  I  portray  certain   personality  traits  of  the  girl  that  I’m  drawing  &   allow  the  viewer  to  get  an  insight  of  what  she’s  all   about.  I  draw  these  girls  because  they  lure  me  in   for  some  reason,  &  I  want  the  person  looking   at  the  picture  to  feel  the  same  way.  If  you’re   going  to  tell  a story,  I  believe  you  should  tell  it   right.

6) Are  you  still   splitting  your  time  in   between  Paris,  London  and   North Wales?

5) What  has  been  the   best  thing  so  far  that’s  hap-­ pened  to  you  in  your  career? The  jobs  that  I’m  being  asked  to  do  just   seem  to  be  getting  better  and  better  all  the   time,  so  it  always  feels  like  the  one  I’m  working   on  at  that  moment  in  time  is  the  best  one.  I’ve  just   ϐ‹‹•Š‡†ƒ…‘‹••‹‘ˆ‘”‘’•Š‘’ǡ‹ŽŽ—•–”ƒ–‹‰ some  pieces  for  their  Oxford  Street  store  window   for  LFW,  as  well  as  some  other  illustrated  good-­‐ ‹‡•ˆ‘”‹Ǧ•–‘”‡ǤŠƒ–™ƒ•†‡ϐ‹‹–‡Ž›ƒ†”‡ƒ job  and  a  half  -­‐  it’s  a  brand  that  I’ve  always   wanted  to  work  with,  so  that  was   pretty  amazing  for  me.

I’m not  based  in  Paris  anymore,  I’m  now   back  working  between  North  Wales,  &  London   &  I’m  also  spending  a  lot  of  time  in  Cardiff  -­‐   which  I  love,  it’s  a  brilliant  city.  But  this  will  all   be  changing  soon,  as  I’m  going  to  be  spend-­‐ ing  a  lot  2012  exhibiting  around  the  world,   •‘ ǯ˜‡”›‡š…‹–‡†ƒ„‘—––Šƒ–Ǩȋ ǯŽŽ„‡ keeping  my  blog  updated  with   where  I’ll  be ƒ†™Š‡ȌǤ

7) Do  you  have   an  all  time  favourite   illustration  that  you  have   drawn  or is  it  too  hard  to  just  choose  one? The  illustration  of  the  girl  holding  a   paperchain  has  to  be  one  of  my ˆƒ˜‘—”‹–‡•Ǥ –™ƒ•–Š‡ϐ‹”•–’‹‡…‡  made  in  my  new  studio  too,  so  I’ll always  remember  that  one.

ͺȌ Your illustrations   are  so  beautiful,  what  re-­‐ search  do  you  do  before  you start  getting  down  to  work? I  have  hundreds  of  websites  and  blogs  book-­‐ marked  on  my  Mac  and  I  look  through  these  when-­‐ ever  I’m  in  need  of  a  bit  of  inspiration.  But  it’s  not the  websites  and  blogs  of  illustrators  that  I  really   turn  to  when  I’m  trying  to  come  up  with  my  next  il-­‐ lustration  -­‐  Instead  I  look  to  graphic  design,  fashion,   textiles  etc,  because  I  feel  I  get  much  more  original   ideas  when  I  look  away  from  illustration.  Books   Ƭƒ‰ƒœ‹‡•ȋƒŽŽ‹†•Ȍƒ”‡›ˆƒ˜‘—”‹–‡ •‘—”…‡–Š‘—‰Šǡ ϐ‹†–Šƒ– …ƒƒŽ™ƒ›• gleam  some  kind  of idea  out  of  them.

9) You  seem  to   use  a  lot  of  colour  in   your  work,  especially  in   your  latest series-­  What  inspired  you  to  do   this? The  brighter  the  better  if  you  ask  me.   If  you  have  colour,  I  believe  you should  use  it.

10) If  there  was  one   bit  of  advice  you  could   pass  on  to  new  or  struggling artists,  what  would  it  be? Try  your  very  hardest,  always,  and   don’t  take  criticism  to  heart  -­‐  try  and use  it  to  your  advantage  and  learn   from  feedback  you  get.  And  remem-­‐ ber that  no  one  likes  a  show   off!

Nikita Clothing

38


Nikita Clothing  is  an  Icelandic  based  brand,  but  are  blooming   globally  with  their  international  clothing  web-­‐store.   So  what  is  Nikita  Clothing  about  you  may  be  asking?  They  specialise   in  everything  from  outerwear  to  streetstyle,  which  encourages  a  city   girl  like  myself  to  venture  outdoors  in  our  grim  UK  weather  and  for-­‐ tunately,  still  be  fashionably  clothed!  They  also  do  a  lot  of  super  cool   snowboarding  stuff  too. Looking  back  at  their  past  collections,  I  quickly  thought  it  was  for   those  hardcore  mountain  climbing  girls,  who  also  love  the  odd  hike. However,  when  it  came  to  their  autumn/  winter  2011  collections,  I   was  excited  to  see  what  this  brand  was  all  about,  and  I  was  not  disap-­‐ pointed  with  the  results. I  was  impressed  how  they  made  a  simple  jumper:  bold  but  fun  with   geometric  styled  patterned  trousers  in  deep  maroon  shades  to  go  with   it,  each  item  of  clothing  has  a  futuristic  twist!  Not  to  mention  the  play-­‐ suits  that  looked  like  they  were  made  to  be  so  comfy  yet  so  fabulous  at   the  same  time.  This  collection  is  made  for  everyone  and  anyone  who  is   fun  and  daring.                                                                          Their  autumn/  winter  streetwear  collection  says  a  lot  about   winter  in  general;  who  says  that  winter  is  the  most  unglamorous  time   ‘ˆ–Š‡›‡ƒ”ǫ‘—…ƒ™‡ƒ”ƒ›‘ˆ–Š‡•‡‘—–ϐ‹–•ƒŽŽ›‡ƒ””‘—†ǡƒ††”‡•• them  up  however  you  fancy.  Nikita  Clothing  seems  to  be  winning  with   both  sides  of  the  story,  making  our  winter  lives  more  pleasurable.  Eve-­‐ rything  looks  so  comfortable,  these  are  the  type  of  clothes  that  you  can   wear  all  day  and  not  change  them  once  you  get  home.  None  of  it  seems   to  look  itchy,  tight  or  drab,  the  three  common  adjectives  associated   with  this  time  of  year,  which  is  a  bonus.  You  might  be  thinking,  Nikita  Clothing  is  totally  for  those  extreme,  out-­‐ †‘‘”•›–›’‡‘ˆ‰‹”Ž•™Š‡›‘—ϐ‹”•–˜‹•‹––Š‡‹”•‹–‡Ǥ ‘™‡˜‡”ǡ–Š‹••‡ƒ•‘ you  can  see  pretty  much  anyone  can  wear  their  clothes.  It’s  a  bit  like   saying  ‘Vans  are  only  for  skateboarders’  and  we  know  that’s  not  true! ƒ˜‹‰•‡‡‹‹–ƒŽ‘–Š‹‰ȋ–Š‡‹”™ƒ”‡•–…Ž‘–Š‡•Ȍǡ ƒ›Œ—•–˜‡-­‐ ture  out  this  winter  rather  than  hibernate,  and  moan  about  not  having   ƒ›…‘‘Ž™‹–‡”…Ž‘–Š‡•Ǩ‹‹–ƒŽ‘–Š‹‰™‹ŽŽϐ‹–‘—”Š‘””‹„Ž‡”‹–‹•Š weather  perfectly  this  season.   Ani  Saakana

Rouse by  Annabelle  Lee  is  a  diverse  and  wearable  jewellery  collection.  The  pieces  can  be  worn  with

The  necklaces  are  long  with  beads  and  crosses  which  suggest  a  bit  of  a  statement  piece-­‐  but  not  too   radical  so  they  could  still  be  worn  for  any  occasion.  The  hippie  inspiration  is  represented  in  these   pieces,  hanging  loosely  from  the  neck,  carefree  and  beautiful.   One  of  our  favourite  pieces  is  the  bracelet  with  the  leaf  shape  hanging  from  it,  it  would  make  you  want   to  wear  tee  shirts  in  all  weather  just  to  show  off  this  dazzling  piece! And  just  remember...When  you  think  of  hippie  one  of  the  main  connotations  surrounding  this  could  be   that  it  is  over  the  top-­‐  this  is  a  negative  and  luckily  Annabelle  Lee  proves  anything  but.  Her  collection   ‹••‹’Ž‹•–‹…„—–•–‹ŽŽƒ‡•ƒ•–ƒ–‡‡–™‹–Š‡—–”ƒŽ…‘Ž‘—”•ƒ‹‰‹–‡ƒ•›–‘…Š‘‘•‡ƒ‘—–ϐ‹–ƒ†ƒ…-­‐ cessorise  with  this  collection.

Tribal Style

Have you  always  liked  the  look  of  

those earrings  your  daring  friends   wear  that  have  their  ears  stretched?     But  you’ve  never  seen  them  available   for  regular  pierced  ears?  Well,  fear  not   for  Tribal  Style  an  online  shop  through   etsy,  means  you  can  buy  these  earrings   without  having  to  gauge  your  ears!   They  would  fool  anybody  and  there  is  a   range  to  choose  from. One  of  our  favourites  has  to  be  Maha-­‐ raja  Curls  –  Fake  Gauge  Horn  Earrings.   These  give  quite  a  gothic  image  but  suit   to  be  worn  with  anything  and  they  are   beautifully  hand  carved!

Like  all  of  the  designs,  the  best  part   is  that  they  may  look  heavy  but  unlike   the  real  thing,  they  are  very  lightweight   yet  still  wearable  and  have  the  look  of   stretched  ears  with  two  separate  pieces. There  are  many  other  designs  to  choose   from  like  wings,  to  swans,  you  would   †‡ϐ‹‹–‡Ž›ϐ‹†‘‡–Šƒ–™‘—Ž†•—‹–›‘—” taste. All  of  the  earrings  are  made  with  love,   taken  from  originally  made  gauged  ears   and  then  split  into  two  so  the  tribal  style   is  made  for  everybody.  Every  material  is   eco  friendly  which  is  a  bonus  as  they  are   hip  and  sustainable.  Tribal  Style  are  very   eco  conscious  so  purchasing  these  would   help  you  do  your  bit  and  for  a  reasonable   price  wear  something  you  love.

Monsieur Qui

70


Monsieur Qui  is  an  inspirational  illustrator  sharing  his  work  as  street  art  in  Paris.  Those  of  you  lucky   enough  to  have  seen  it  will  know  he  is  a  genius  when  it  comes  to  using  ink.  Those  of  you  who  haven’t,   well  it’s  your  lucky  day  because  below  I  have  found  some  of  what  I  think  are  his  most  beautiful  work. 71


His illustrations  look  like  they  have  come  straight  from  a  fashion  catwalk  they  are  that  detailed  and   glamorous,  mainly  of  beautiful  women  but  other  things  too.  You  just  wouldn’t  expect  to  see  them  on   the  walls  of  Paris  but  rather  in  high-­‐end  fashion  magazines,  this  is  what  makes  these  illustrations  so   special.  Monsieur  Qui  is  clearly  that  passionate  about  his  work  that  he  doesn’t  care  about  showing   –Š‡ˆ‘”ˆ”‡‡ƒ†‹–‹•Š‡ƒ”–™ƒ”‹‰–‘…‘‡ƒ…”‘••–Š‹•ǤŠ‡•‡‹ŽŽ—•–”ƒ–‹‘•ƒ”‡†‡ϐ‹‹–‡Ž›•–ƒ–‡‡– art  and  bring  even  more  culture  to  the  city  of  Paris.   72


I don’t  think  any  of  his  particular  works  could  be  categorised  as  they  range  from  fashion  to  surreal-­‐ ism.  Some  have  statements  across  them  whilst  others,  you  feel  like  you  need  to  look  more  than  twice   to  come  up  with  your  own  interpretation,  in  this  sense,  Monsieur  Qui  has  catered  for  all  artsy  types   without  even  realising  it,  from  the  people  who  like  statement  art  to  the  people  who  prefer  abstract  or   surrealism,  he  is  talented  in  it  all.  If  you’re  lucky  enough  to  visit  Paris  you  might  very  well  see  some   of  his  work  pasted  on  walls  in  the  streets.  You  can  see  more  on  how  his  work  is  slowly  changing,  right   here;  www.monsieurqui.com 73

The Pin  Pals  are  made  up  of  Samantha  Purdy  and  Sara  Guindon  from  Montreal,  Canada.  Samantha  and   Sara  met  back  in  2006  and  decided  to  combine  efforts  to  establish  a  small  business.  Sam,  works  with   vintage  textiles  and  cross  stitches  her  own  designs  on  to  handmade  brooches  and  earrings.  Sara  is  an   illustrator  and  prints  her  drawings  on  paper  toys  and  T-­‐shirts.  Sara  also  dabbles  in  wool  felting  and   applique.   They  make  all  kinds  of  little  creations  in  their  Etsy  shop,  from  buttons  to  brooches,  I  also  stumbled   across  the  odd  hairband  as  well.   Their  handmade  goods  start  from  as  little  as  £9.00,  which  I  think  is  an  absolute  bargain.
