This is a shoot that fashion photographer Lili Forberg recently did, with stylist Angela Scanlon. The shoot has a lovely, grungy feel to it, which I think Irish fashion heads do really well, rather than just sticking to tried and trusted formulae, and of course showcases the serious denim trend for S/S 2010 that is just not going away.

Add to that the gingham touches that reference Christopher Kane‘s S/S show and you’ve got a pretty cracking formula. My only criticism (and isn’t fashion blogging about criticism as much as it is about praise?) would be that I would have liked to have seen a bit of a softer look on the model – or, if we’re going with a hard look, slicked-back hair all the way through and a strong aubergine lip, rather than coral which (I know, I know) is, like, so in right now, but just doesn’t seem to suit the look here.
