HERE WE PRESENT A SELECTION OF RELATABLE ACCOUNTS VIA OUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM: YOU CAN BOTH FIND FASHION FLASHBACK YOUR FEED DESPERATELY NEEDS, ANALOGUE READING MATERIAL OR SOUND-CENTRIC FEEDS YOU NEED TO FOLLOW!
@wardrobedept: Though many archival accounts have mined the Antwerp Six gods and 80s Japanese anti-fashion for inspirational images, there’s still much to be said for 60s and 70s stylish throw backs. For the perfect balance of 70s grooves and 90s grit, head to @wardrobedept for vintage across the ages.
@womenandfilm: Natalie Falt uses her platform to increase awareness of women in the media, alongside celebrating films made by women through the seductive aesthetic pull of the film still: “I believe in celebrating what is inherently female, rather than shaming women for having certain traits – or for being ‘girly’. I can’t wait to see more women in front of and behind the camera; it’s so important to see relatable images on screen – it makes one not feel so alone in the world”.
@therealmickrock: In the world of music photography, Mick Rock’s influence is unparalleled. He has photographed everybody from the Ramones and the Sex Pistols to Joan Jett and Lou Reed, going on more tours than everybody else. His official Instagram feed is a treasure trove of magnificent memories from the man behind the camera himself.
@punkbadges: Since the advent of time (or perhaps the mid 60s) people have been wearing badges – whether to express an opinion, political or otherwise, or just to embellish a sad holey jumper – and Instagram account @punkbadges has taken as its raison d’être the near impossible task of documenting all those created in support of punk. From the ironic “fuck the pistols, I’ve been victimised” to “GERM FREE”.
@antifurniture: is a self-described “mobile bookstore and image research lab”, created by Nelson Harst, combining rare and vintage printed materials with archive images and artworks to create a veritable melting pot of contemporary visual culture. Expect to see excerpts from publications you’d never even dare to dream of!
@camillebwaddington: she is “particularly adept at finding the thin line between what is elegant and what is ridiculous,” and nowhere is this more apparent than her crazy colorful Instagram feed.
@nicamille: Brooklyn-based florist Nicolette Camille Floral’s delectable Instagram account marks the difficult-to-master moment where chic, contemporary and unexpected arrangements and Dutch still life paintings collide. There are dark, moody backdrops, luminous blooms that seem too vivid to be real!
