CHIC COMMUNICATION

   October 29, 2013  

I have always liked exchanging letters with friends. This is a way of expressing the romantic side of yourself! It rarely works though now, since by the time you announce to somebody the news via a letter, somebody else is discussing already on facebook!

But the letters in Britain got competitive to digital communication! Royal Mail released a collection of stamps in honor of the country’s biggest fashion influencers. Photographer Solve Sundsbo shot images of clothes from Alexander McQueenZandra RhodesVivienne Westwood, and other designers and retailers for the series of first-class stamps. The stamps will surely lend style to any envelopes they’re stuck on, but they also carry an important message about Britain’s place in fashion history.
