Designer Savannah Miller of Twenty8Twelve writes to us from London. Oh, joy! Today, she explains how an old issue of Vogue Italia inspired her recent collection. 

 

"For our autumn/ winter collection we looked at an old Peter Lindbergh shoot in Italian Vogue where the girls had been styled as boys in a tribute to '90s rockabilly. While delving through the British Vogue archive library, I stumbled across this shoot, also from Vogue Italia, which was shot at my boarding school in the '90s. I remember the casting director wandering around the school, picking the strangest-looking girls as all the pretty girls complained because they wanted to be in the photo shoot. We all thought the hair, makeup and styling was really weird, but looking back, I see how directional and visionary they were. These pictures totally led our delivery three mood as we paid tribute to the restriction of a school uniform and the magic of rebellious schoolgirls somehow managing to make it their own."
