Hardy Boys
At the ripe old age of 25, Sir Edwin Hardy Amies found himself — by way of his mother’s connections in the London fashion scene — forging quite the career as a master tailor and designer, dressing everyone from the gents of Savile Row to Queen Elizabeth II herself. He was an icon and an innovator, commissioned for projects ranging from outfitting the British ‘72 Olympic squad, as well as designing the costumes in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The brand’s heritage is a thick thread woven throughout, but that hasn’t prevented them from keeping up with the times. The company, under the creative direction of Claire Malcolm as of 2010, is as hip as ever. Want a piece of the legacy? See what eBay has by clicking here. Ladies, this a strong gift for any boyfriend!

David Bowie Is…
London’s Victoria and Albert Museum is currently showing the very first international retrospective of the artist, who is as famous for his music as he is for pushing the boundaries of art, fashion, and sexuality. More than 300 items have been collected for the show, including handwritten lyrics, original costumes, set designs, and more. Though no one has ever been able to put David Bowie in a box, this remarkable exhibition comes as close to containing the man as anyone ever has. Running now through August 11th, 2013.

Woo!
Photographer Juergen Teller’s career has managed to bridge the gap between art and commerce for years. Regularly behind the lens for the biggest names in the fashion business, Juergen’s work is similarly lauded by the art world. Above is an image of a young, fiery haired Kate Moss channeling Vivienne Westwood from Teller’s Woo! exhibition at London’s ICA, running through March. We recommend checking out eBay’s selection of Teller tomes and prints for an at-home fix if you can’t make it to the show.

Chalk-a-Block
Remember the days when you’d doodle the day away in the family driveway, or, in this case, the middle of the street? There’s nothing more liberating than turning your city’s sidewalks into your personal canvas. As kids, chalk always provided endless amounts of temporary entertainment, which, more likely than not, we don’t partake in any longer (with the exception of children’s book illustrator Dallas Clayton, who we reported on last month, a notorious fan of spontaneous bursts of sidewalk chalking). If you, like Dallas, feel like tapping into the kid in you, eBay has sidewalk chalk covered. Now it’s just up to you to make the art.

Get Ready for Frieze

By Jauretsi

In anticipation of the opening of Frame 2012 at the Frieze London next week, AnOthermag.com has created in an exclusive short film in collaboration with artist Sarah Beeby and COS. The video is very inspired… with references to ideas, aesthetics and working processes of the artists and the fashion brand COS. If you’ve never heard of Frieze, get to know it. With a bevy of guests including art lovers, collectors, and gallerists, it is considered a mecca for art enthusiasts. The lovely part of this gathering is the quality of talent curated globally. Supported by COS for the past three years, Frame at Frieze London is solely focused on young solo artist presentations. Since it began in 2009, it has shown emerging worldwide creatives, none of who has been a practising artist for more than six years.

Frieze London returns to Regents Park, London from the October 11 – 14.

Meet Emma
By Jauretsi
Emma Allen is one of those girls you want to hang with and shop vintage together. Our London eBay team spotted Emma and asked her a few questions. Having her start on the eBay platform, Emma’s vision evolved into StyleSequel, a site she founded which sells beautiful second-hand designer fashion and accessories, sourced from the wardrobes of some of the most stylish women in the world. Here’s a little more from the stylish pied piper…
How long have you been doing this job?
I have been selling second-hand designer fashion for over 6 years. I started in a very small way on eBay and it grew and grew into a business that had so much more potential. I launched Style Sequel, along with my business partners, just over a year ago. We have our own website now but we still use eBay as our selling platform.
[MORE]
Q: How did you get to where you are today?
A: I was obsessed with eBay from the moment it launched in the UK. It just captured my heart and mind form the start. I started off just buying but then I started selling a few things for myself and my friends and was hooked. Soon I was selling for a handful of super glamorous London ladies who recommended me their friends and it really snowballed from there. I quit my job at the time and took the plunge. I, and Style Sequel now sell for (and to) incredibly stylish women from all over the UK and overseas – Paris to Sydney, Milan to New York.
Q: What is your go-to outfit for a night out?
A: It depends on my mood. Sometimes I like simple yet dramatic shapes in black and grey – Osman, Comme Des Garcons, Jil Sander - paired with strong jewellery from Pamela Love or Tom Binns. I am not great with skinny heels but I can do super high wedges – my favourite pair are my Camilla Skovgaard booties.
Other times I’ll feel more like some colour and texture. I’ll wear my 1980s Versace leopard print skirt, my gorgeous Giambattista Valli Resort 2010 dress or my 1960s Susan Small silver shift dress.
