Alexander Fury follows Lily Allen, Mary Katrantzou and Nick Knight, All Over Press/Jon Emmony.
With a quick wit and sharp tongue, Alexander Fury is one of fashion’s most incisive critics, first at SHOWstudio, then Love, and now The Independent. Here, he shares his social media faves.
Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio is where I started my career, and they explore the concept of digital fashion like no other. Their Tumblr features plenty of Nick’s own work, as well as monthly curation by creatives like Gareth Pugh, Mary Katrantzou and Alastair Mackie.
Lily Allen is amazing. Everything about her is amazing. There was a period over Christmas when her Twitter avatar was her head Photoshopped onto the body of a plucked, oven-ready goose.
MAGAZINE ON INSTAGRAM
I don’t follow many magazine Instagrams, but 10’s doesn’t feel like a corporate, antiseptic, overly edited account. There’s also plenty of Sophia Neophitou on there – 10’s editor-in-chief and one of my favourite women on the planet.
RABBITS ON INSTAGRAM
NOTHING but rabbits! Sometimes in brilliant, frilly clothes. I have a rabbit of my own so I am utterly obsessed, and this account makes me want to buy about 17 more.
KATRANTZOU ON INSTAGRAM
The thing I love most about Mary’s Instagram is that she’s behind just about every image on there. That’s what I love the most about these digital platforms: they can give you a true insight into someone’s creative vision. Entirely unfiltered. Except for Instagram’s own, that is.
