Very early and very beautiful picture of the wonderful model Kirsten Owen by John Phillips . This was one of the pictures I saw in Kirsten’s model book when @marcascoli and I first asked her to model for Yohji Yamamoto back in 1986 .
Time seems a little more important today as it is my birthday .
Thank you to John Phillips for this lovely gift !

The gentleman is Frank Foster .
He made the beautiful white shirts I have worn virtually every day for the last 30 years and was in my opinion the best shirt maker in the world .
Frank passed away at the age of 93 after living a rich and full life . His work and his life have been an important part of how I feel about myself as a man .
People can underestimate the power of clothing but Frank’s shirts are imbued with all the wonderful passions and masculine elegance he had. This discreetly simple item of clothing, this white shirt, is more of a piece of art than I think Frank would have ever allowed himself to believe.
Read my tribute to one of the most influential men in my life on SHOWstudio now. @frank_foster_shirts.
The company @frank_foster_shirts continues to make the most elegant men’s shirts now thanks to his wife Mary and daughter Sam , both of which I owe a lot to in helping me write my piece on Frank .
Frank Foster shirts is at 40 Pall Mall, London .
