Style Scrapbook: Psychedelic Daze


It’s summer, and I’m eager to take a weird trip with out of the box prints, holographic metallics, decadent jewels, and accessories that are a bit surreal… Psychedelic inspiration is easy to find in trippy colors, off-beat works of art, and especially in vintage imagery — the summer of love can provide endless ideas, perfect for summer festivals, or every day demonstrations of peace and love. See below for some great inspiration and clothing and accessories that you can shop now to get the perfect psychedelic look.

Girl of the Moment – Sam Rollinson with Select London

The New Girl –
Not exactly a rookie – but Sam Rollinson from the United Kingdom who possesses a very British look has started to make a major impression this season.
She’s signed at mother agency Select Model Management in London & New York Model Management in New York
With short brown hair and brown eyes, Sam has appeared in her fair share of editorials, the Burberry F/W 10 campaign by Mario Testino and she even closed Balenciaga S/S 13 & went on to appear in the campaign.

She can be found as @samrollinson on twitter – where you can follow her latest exploits during the upcoming Paris shows.

The press has started to take note – the London evening standard calling her a rising star of 2013 and an ‘elfin British model’ and calling her ‘the latest Brit beauty to catch the eye of every editor, casting director and designer in the business.’ and a top ten newcomer.

Sam killed NYFW, walked key shows in london and continued to dominate in Milan
she closed Diesel Black Gold F/W 13.14, opened Reed Krakoff F/W 13.14. In London she impressively opened up-and coming London designer J.W. Anderson’s show and then went on to close Marni at MFW.

Just this month she appeared in a Carine Roitfeld styled editorial for US Bazaar March 2013 and then went on to
score no less than three editorials in the former Vogue editor’s fashion tome CR Fashion Book.
She’s one of the biggest girls of the moment this season, and with campaign experience already under her belt there’s no questioning we’ll be seeing loads of her in print this year.
