Blouson Noir

Look who's popped up in the Spring 2010 look book for new brand Blouson Noir.








Nice surprise, huh? The people behind Blouson Noir are Harper's Bazaar fashion editor Melanie Ward and Graham Tabor, former knit-wear consultant for Karl Lagerfeld's short lived New York collection. Maybe that's why they were able to land both Freja and Lily for this look book? For a collection that's only been around since May of 2009, that's a pretty impressive feat; but having a connection to the Kaiser certainly helps.

Regardless, it's always great to see top models working for younger, less well-known brands. After all, emerging talent is the future of the industry and it's often where you find the fresh, innovative, riskier ideas. Freja and Lily both look good and it's nice to see them both working in anticipation of the FW1011 season.

I get what you're saying and I too am worried about how thin Freja's been looking lately. However, she's always been very thin and I think we're just noticing it more now because she's been working more and showing her body off more. Her early work wasn't very revealing at all and she mostly kept out of the limelight.

I'm not saying she doesn't look thin, but I just don't think it's half as bad as people are making it out to be. It's a combination of losing weight probably from working more, and showing her body in ways never seen before so it's surprising to us fans. This all being said, I do hope Freja has gotten the chance to relax and rest up. I'd rather see her happy than walking on tons of runways.

to me she looks rather exhausted lately. i don't know whether she lost that much weight, that's hard to judge from pics. however she seems tired

My two favourite models, they look amazing.
A benefit of Lagerfeld then that doesn't involve Chanel, I like it.

SF: I think you can find them on Freja's old tFS thread. I can also send you the images I have if you give me your e-mail.

Very nice pictures, some of the pieces are beautiful, one thing that all pictures have in common is the beautiful model.
