British Fashion Influencers Become The Face Of Royal Mail Postage

Sometimes, certain stamps are just too precious to use and these Great Brit fashion stamps are certainly no exception.  

Created by graphic designers Johnson Banks, they commissioned fashion photographer  Sølve Sundsbø to photograph 10 outfits by Britain’s top fashion influencers within the past 60 years including Vivienne Westwood, Ossie Clark, Paul Smith, Zandra Rhodes and Alexander McQueen (the best one).  Besides the subject matter, what’s great about these stamps is the composition with all the negative space where the human form/pose is retained sans face and hands. It’s definitely all about the clothes. 

Here are my favorites:
