i could have


Though I'd share a preview from a project I'm currently working on titled 'i could have...' It's a collaboration with a special someone known as Sarah Bentley who likes to do nice things.
Sarah and I met a lil while ago and share quite a peculiar backstory which is one of the main influences to our collaboration. I have a very fragmented memory of our introduction. It was very late, i was waiting for the night bus, I was approached by two female people, I was quite high/wasted/both so can't really recall what they looked like, may have been some pink hair(?), one asked where i live and so i gave her my address. She lives in Bristol but also lived in London, we stayed in contact through exchange of letters, she did this thing called postswap, she posted me something shiny, i sent her some underwear, she gave me lice, i made them a t-shirt... and the rest i can't really explain, mainly because it doesn't really make much sense.

You can read here for a more coherent and expansive overview. Also view the bentleg website for a hint of what to expect.

Muchos love,
Grant Mitchel

auto italia live


A lil while ago, I was lucky enough to be involved in the filming of Auto Italia Live. I was asked to do the styling and costume changes for the show's presenter Rachel Pimm using selected pieces from designer Dinu Bodiciu's collection which I paired with jewellery and accessories of my own.

Here are some photos of the outfit highlights which include the reversible jacket dress and a transparent jump suit with hairy armpits. Also, click here to see the brilliant promo for the final episode.

Rattle my bones,
