As concerns new wealth and fame the term “upstart,” strictly speaking, is not the most flattering expression. With the term comes the fallout of accusations of arrogance or worse, yet once the dust clears fame persists and often for good reason. Starring in a sprawling (and I mean sprawling) series titled “Upstarts” photographed by Sølve Sundsbø appearing in LOVE A/W 2014 is a talented trio of Cora Corre, Romy Byrne, and Tati Cotliar. Although Cora only recently joined Next, her fashion lineage extends back through mother and Agent Provocateur founder Serena Rees all the way to her grandmother Vivienne Westwood. There is an undeniable rhythm in the pacing of Romy, who is pictured skipping before the camera wearing Alexander McQueen. Tati oozes personality, so much so that she shows up on the page in duplicate wearing Prada. Twice. Upstarts, however boastful, are no less worthy of celebration and especially when they include Cora, Romy, and Tati.
