Schwarzkopf x Ellen Von Unwerth

Wallace Wells: You doing okay there? 
Scott Pilgrim: Yeah, good, good, good. She changed her hair. 
Wallace Wells: So, it looks nice blue! 
Scott Pilgrim: Yeah I know, but she did it without making a big deal out of it or anything... She's fickle, impulsive, spontaneous... God what am I going to do?

London Fashion Week - Picks so Far IV

Rebellious puritans at Meadham Kirchoff.

Meadham Kirchoff was my personal most anticipated show of London Fashion Week, purely for the reason that the designers always manage to enigmatically tell a tale through their collections and transport you to a completely different age/culture/place fantastically. I love the colours; the textures; the not-so-straight-laced puritan meets 90's Camden Market goth. I love they way it creeped me out a tiny bit.  Genius.







For the Woman who has Everything . . .

I clocked the new Gucci Spring Summer 2011 ad campaign in Sunday Times Style the other day. Why buy an It bag when you can accessorise with 2 perfect babies??!! So cute.

London Fashion Week - Picks so Far III

Major POW (and a high wearability factor) at Topshop Unique.

Love how Topshop Unique is becoming a label in it's own right, catering to the previously underwhelming British high street mid-market. Already coveting some (i.e. all) of these looks . . . give me patience until September!!














LUXURY + RARITY - Luxirare

Have just stumbled across the wonderful blog/e-shop that is Luxirare. The blog is a combination of food and fashion posts based on observations all over the world; and the e-shop stocks new and vintage clothes and jewellery, ranging from iconic designer pieces to unique one-off creations.

Check it out and see for yourself . . .

. . . but first here's a taster of some of the pieces that caught my eye!!!

Love these cuffs




AMAZING patchwork rabbit jacket



The iconic YSL cage ankle boots




A little bit of Chris Kane and snakeskin - killer!

London Fashion Week - Picks so Far II

Slicked back hair, amazing (Bjorg) jewellery, printed leggings (want it all) at Aminaka Wilmont









London Fashion Week - Somerset House

Somerset House, where London Fashion Week is now held, has to be one of my absolute favourite buildings in London. It doesn't remind me in any way of 'typical' London architecture or buildings which is probably one of the reasons it stands out for me so much. I love it.

I wish I could live there . . .

LFW FTW



London Fashion Week starts today and no longer do you have to wait for commentaries and static images from bloggers/fashion editors/magazines to catch a glimpse of the shows. This season, a fully fledged digital revolution is bringing LFW to the masses.  The BFC is streaming the highlights from the shows at Somerset House onto the screens of the London Underground, and Topshop will also be live streaming from its flagship. The biggest coup has been landed by Burberry (obvs!!); the Burberry Prorsum AW 11 show will be streamed in real time on the giant screen at Piccadilly Circus (Monday at 4pm).

Vive le video revolution!!!

NY Fashion Picks III - The Row

I had a total disconnect (in a good way), when looking at the latest collection from The Row. Anyway it definitely made me smile in a I want a hat that's so big I would have to book it it's own seat on a plane way ... oh and for the random cookie monster reference - actually I think coloured fur will be a big trend next year - but did I miss a private joke??? See, disconnect. But I like it.
