If you're popping into for some shopping at Hermes flagship store (on Bond Street) expect to see the ground floor of the store like you've never seen it before. The brilliant Studio Toogood has teamed up with the Hermes to launch petit h - a creative and poetic new take on the iconic Hermes brand and the interior of the store acts as an antidote to West End slickness.

Read Grit's exclusive interview of Andreas Laszlo Konrath
Friday 24th September 2010 Q+A Andreas Laszlo Konrath
From taking pictures of punk kids and skateboarders to documenting fashion weeks in backstage the London born (now Brooklyn based) the photographer Andreas Laszlo Konrath has proven he can successfully do both. Andreas chats to us about punk scenes and never growing up. We also wanted to ask him about what he thinks about the controversy in Larry Clark's and Tierney Gearon's work.
Agyness Deyn by Andreas Laszlo Konrath
You have been doing some backstage fashion show photography in Milan, Paris and NY and have captured Aggy, Freja, Abbey Lee, Anna Piaggi,Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander Wang etc but what first caught our attention in Grit were your raw images of youth culture. What is it that inspires you in the youth culture?
I come from a background of skateboarding and playing in bands since I was a young teenager, so I am attracted to capturing and inspired by cultures that I feel a connection to. Perhaps it's a nostalgic feeling, as I am now in my late 20's, so obviously there is a slight age difference between
myself and some of the subjects I like to photograph. I like the idea of documenting parts of myself in the new generation, in a way it's quite narcissistic, but I think it's necessary to capture part of yourself in your subjects. When I am out shooting with a bunch of skateboarders or some punks at a show, I approach it in a way as if I was taking photos of myself at their age. Of course, I am also interested in new trends, styles, music and ideas, and the energy in youth culture is very inspiring. It's great to be reminded of what it's like to be young and care free again. Responsibility destroys naivety.
You were born in North East London, but you have lived in Brooklyn since 2005, what is the biggest difference between the punk scenes in London and NY?
It really depends on what part of the "punk" scenes your talking about. I mean, the word "punk" is misused these days anyway, and there are so many amalgamations of the music or scene it's hard to find it's true meaning or philosophy in today's "punk" movements. London and New York have always had that relationship where music scenes get bounced back and forth so quickly,
there isn't really a huge difference in the scenes. You'll see kids wearing the same clothes and being into the same bands in both cities just depending on what era or style of "punk" they're into - you'll have the hardcore kids and the crusty punks, kids into the old 1st wave punk, then 2nd wave California style punk, ska punk and even the ones into pop or emo punk - there are so many different mini sub cultures within the culture it all kind of blends into one big mash. I can definitely say that America in general has a more commercialized view of "punk" music now as a whole with things like Vans Warped Tour and the now defunct Hellfest. I find that the most interesting factor is how it is marketed over here, as I'm sure it is now in the UK. I do know that in both cities there's been a much bigger resurgence of underground DIY cultures in general and the classic ideas of "punk" movements are being engaged again because everyone has gotten a bit sick of things been force fed to them. We're all a lot smarter than corporations think we are!
The high end fashion world and youth culture are worlds apart, but you've been successful documenting both. Where does the success lie in?
Really I feel much more at home out skateboarding or at a gig taking photos, so those images come naturally to me. Those photos are things I've done in my own time and consider very personal projects, and hopefully the success lies in being passionate about what I'm doing and taking an honest or truthful photograph of those experiences. The fashion world really isn't
something I was ever interested in but I was given the opportunity and access to do some portraits and document the backstage environment. Of course, it's healthy to step out of your comfort zone so I took the chance to take some great photos of something I had no past experience with. The fact that I didn't really know who I was taking photos of or what their
significance in the fashion world is really helped because then I approached everything without preconceptions and so I just took photos of them as if I was taking photos of anything I normally would. Again, if I can take an honest and direct photograph of someone then I'm happy. I tried to not get effected by the whole fashion world hierarchy and just treated everyone like
I would any friend or skateboarder or kid hanging at a show. Hopefully my images were a fresh perspective because I'd never been there before and didn't really get caught up in who was famous or all that other stuff, and just wanted to take great photos!
Do you actively look for models? How do you choose your models?
I don't really actively search for models, and I don't think the word model is really appropriate for my work. I like to photograph subjects, people with personalities and something more to them than just being a manikin! I definitely know what kind of subjects I am attracted to or inspired by,
whether that's visually or there's something else about them that you really want to capture. I see myself foremost as a portrait photographer so the person in the photo has to have more than looks to make a good photo. I mostly shoot people I know or have met before in some capacity, like a party or at a show, or a friend of a friend etc... I do like street casting sometimes, so if I see someone walking down the street that has some energy, or a look, or a style that captures my attention I'll approach them and explain what kind of work I do. Hopefully I'll meet with them again and try and shoot some photos. But it's not like I'm out on the street searching day
and night for the perfect person, it's nice when it just happens naturally and you just instinctively know that you want to photograph that person!
Both controversial - photographer Tierney Gearon or film maker Larry Clark? Why?
I really love both Larry and Tierney's work, but I don't find them overly controversial really. I suppose when Clark did Tulsa, at the time I'm sure it was pretty raw and unnerving, and of course, in the 90's with Kids, he struck a nerve with the public about what they didn't want to know their children were doing. The only reason he gets thrown into the controversial bucket is because he's a dude in his 50's or 60's, photographing young people, and there's always that pedophiliac connotation that people are going to jump at. I think because Clark was the first photographer that got me wanting to take photos, I'm so used to his work that it doesn't shock me. I was 13 when Kids came out and so that film just seemed like the way it must be in America, but it didn't scare me or offend me. I kind of wished my life was that cool! And of course I loved the fact he had pro skaters in his film which I had posters of in my bedroom. I own nearly all his books so his work was always just part of my inspiration and life, so to me it was just what he chose to do with his artistic career. Maybe in the politically correct world we know, it's not "appropriate" to take photos of a teenager getting a blow job from a prostitute, but to Larry Clark that just seemed normal, he probably got blow jobs off prostitutes all the time when he was young!!!
I think the whole controversial thing got stuck on Tierney because of the Saatchi show I Am A Camera, and we all know his role is to sensationalize art. I went to see that show and loved her photos, they just seemed like amazing family moments, with this slightly tweaked perspective. It didn't outrage me though, seeing photos of naked children, those are her kids, why can't she take photos of them naked!? And then the UK press loved to blow it all out of proportion again throwing the pedophiliac stamp at the show! I'm sure that both her and Saatchi are grateful for all the press they got, as all press is good press, right!?
One of the biggest selling rappers once said he wanted to stop rapping before he would turn 30 since he thought it wouldn't be cool anymore. Do you ever think there's time when a photographer becomes too old to take pictures of young people/youth culture?
I do often think about if there'll be a time when I will stop being interested in skateboarding or the music scenes I am interested in, and therefore will my attention of young people or youth culture turn to something else? Perhaps, I'm not really sure. If it feels right to continue to do it, then I will. If I still feel connected to those cultures, then I will continue. Maybe part of it is not really wanting to grow up, or not feeling any different to when I was 18, so it feels natural to go for a
skate, and hang out with younger people. The great thing about skateboarding
is that it doesn't really matter what age you are, if you have the same thing in common, then it's fine to hang out with people in any age group. When I was 13 and going down to the skatepark, I was hanging out with 20 year olds, or 30 year olds even, they're the people I looked up to! It was
amazing to have friends in all age ranges because it was the skateboard that we all loved and we all got along regardless of age. I hope that I will still love the things I have for the last 15 years, but that doesn't mean that change is bad either... If I'm still skateboarding when I'm 60, that
could be amazing! We will just have to wait and see!

Tuesday 14th May 2013 Style Undercover
Womenswear is usually ahead of the men’s fashion game, but for autumn/winter 13 something shifted, and that shift was caused by camouflage. Menswear gurus: Josh Peskowitz, Nick Wooster and Eugene Tong, have all been seen donning camouflage like a badge of honour, but on the menswear scene being “undercover” lost its appeal and luckily womenswear has picked up the look for the coming autumn.
from left to right: Josh Peskowitz, Eugene Tong and Nick Wooster
Camo has been a long time love of the fashion world. Mid-nineties style evokes memories of Shaznay, Melanie, Natalie and Nicole shuffling to Never Ever on Top of the Pops in spaghetti strapped tops and baggy combat trousers, often in a jaunty camo print, it was a look that defined an entire generation. Although for AW13, it’s Destiny’s Child’s look from their Survivor video that appears to be the source of inspiration. Striking camo statements is the order of the season and designers have gone all out. Christopher Kane’s collection, which was his first on PPR’s pay role, had camo re-imagined on Scottish kilts, complete with daring slits in a surprising array of colours, ranging from burgundy and orange, to grey and navy blue, sometimes pieces were adorned with huge trims of fur… needless to say camo never looked so haute or hot.
Girl, you're in the army now

Christopher Kane AW13
High end highstreet label Whistles not only debuted their first ever LFW catwalk show, but also embraced the camouflage trend. The label’s first look was a cool camo print parka, fit for going M.I.A in any urban landscape. The main difference between camo of the past and a/w13 interpretation, is the fact next season camo has gone couture- no longer is it about streetwear and easy to wash fabric. Michael Kors showed a full printed camo mink coat, Kane’s collection was awash with quality wools and beautiful silks. Next season camo is not for the faint of heart or the cheap. So if you want to be a real survivor, best get you wallet out.
