Rockins On Ab Fab!!
Twenty-four years since the first episode of Absolutely Fabulous aired on British television, the cocktail-slugging, pill-popping duo Edina and Patsy are back. With the launch of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is set to hit screens this July, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley marked the revival of their roles with a photoshoot in the centenary issue of Vogue.
Shot by legendary photographer, David Bailey, the typically raucous shoot features our very own Rockins Magic Meadow Super Skinny Scarf in Black! Sweetie, darling! How fabulous!
Ab Fab has become as synonymous with the eccentric British fashion scene as Vivienne Westwood or John Galliano; their hedonistic antics and always fabulous dress sense have captured the hearts of the public since the first episode in 1992. While the portrayal of the fashion industry may be just a little tongue-in-cheek, the highly anticipated film is set to feature a string of contemporary fashion stars. Sneak peeks of the film’s trailer hint that supermodel Kate Moss is at the epicentre of Edina and Patsy’s disastrous adventure; photos recently surfaced of Moss crawling out of the Thames, complete with fag in mouth and champagne in hand, an image that epitomises Ab Fab. Alongside Moss, models Suki Waterhouse, Jourdan Dunn, Lara Stone and
Daisy Lowe are all set to star in the film, while rumours have circulated that Texan supermodel Jerry Hall will also feature.
The original cast are reunited in the film, including Jane Horrocks, June Whitfield and Edina’s long suffering daughter played by Julia Sawalha. While the film sees the bitching pair fall on hard times, the trailer hints at a wardrobe as fabulous as we would expect, from Vivienne Westwood to Balenciaga and flourishing young label, Shrimps. After Anya Hindmarch’s handbags were spotted on set, she told Womenswear Daily; ‘It’s a dream come true, and just lovely’; a true testament to the influence the series has had on today’s fashion stars. You can see Jennifer,
Joanna and Georgia May in the Vogue, featuring the Rockins Magic Meadow Scarf.
