Inspiration is all around us. It can come from art, coffee table books, people we see on the streets, travel, music – really, anywhere. When the pandemic hit and life went into lockdown, we struggled to find inspiration within the four walls of our work from home set-ups. After over a year of searching, we’ve come to realize that inspiration can come from even the smallest of details.
As The Strategy hopes to share the inpsiriaton behind the style of our favourite fashion insiders and muses, we’ve decided to share with you the little details in life that have been inspiring us. Here is what inspired us this week.
If you consider yourself a Sex and The City fan and feel a thrill of excitement with each new set photo from the upcoming movie, we suggest you delve into Lee Tulloch’s book, Fabulous Nobodies. The social satire that was originally published in 1989, follows the life of hip young fashion-obsessed New Yorkers. You will most certainly will laugh, and if you’re a true fashion devotee, you will be exclaiming “yessssss” all too often. Lee Tulloch, or at least her characters, get fashion.
Can everyone take a moment to appreciate Tumblr and all of the inspiration one can glean from an afternoon of scrolling through their favourite pages? It’s a medium that harnessed our interest in fashion, and it’s one we must still check-on daily. If you’re searching for Tumblrs to follow, may we suggest The Strategy’s page? We promise we won’t disappoint.
When our editor first walked into Taylor Hicks New York apartment, she was overwhelmed with all of the inspiring details. Photos from her feature are still some of our favourites, namely ones of her epic vintage magazine collection. It’s enough to have inspired us to start collecting our own vintage magazines. Please do let us know if you have any suggestions on where to source some.
Sigh. When are we not inspired by anything Sofia Coppola does? As summer days start to dwindle, we’re rewatching her 2010 film to be inspired by the moody tone, LA landscape and architecture, and of course, Ed Ruscha print hiding in the background of Stephen Dorff’s character’s Chateau Marmont room.
As a new season looms, we’re also ready to switch up our moodboard game. For this season, we’re taking inspiration from Violet Grey‘s Melrose location, where a collage of images is stuck to the walls with chunky black tape. We love the look.
