Curtains Up

this is mostly about wearing your tights over your top, going to the ballet and, of course, some lovely colours.

Dégagé, Word of the Moment

every now and then i think i should stop dressing like a scruffy kid and start dressing like the grown up that i am. lanvin...  that would do it. then i could be an artfully scruffy, jewel encrusted lady. with amazing jewellery.

Colour Theory

i think that the purity of the limited palette at celine makes such a strong statement in the most delicate way. this collection is so new yet somehow comfortingly understandable and just achingly cool. of course we want leather shorts! we just hadn't realised it yet. i'm glad we have phoebe philo back, there aren't enough women in fashion and she is one who really know how women want to dress.


These Streets Will Make You Feel Brand New

love: the prints, the bold bright colours, the built in jewellery, the perspex, the sunglasses, the matchy matchy accessories. the cut of these garments may be simple but i think that holly fulton's use of colour, paolozzi-esque art deco inspired prints and embellishment make this a completely desirable and rather exciting collection. i'm looking forward to seeing what she does next.


Husam el Odeh

...has been getting a lot of press for his latest jewellery collaborations with acne and topman. he has previously collaborated with the likes of ann-sofie back, siv stoldal and marios schwab in addition to designing own range of jewellery and accessories. but i thought i would share with you some of his illustrations. he's a very talented guy.


Oh Those Socks

i want some klimt-esque clothing in my life. now.
