Someone told me that since I was due in early July, I was just skipping a fashion season. Which pretty much sums it up, I can’t fit into anything fashionable for spring summer, and even when the baby is born,… Continue Reading
I’ve already talked about Sergio Rossi’s autumn winter 2011 collection, but it really wasn’t fair to skip out on spring summer 2011, as that collection was very beautiful too. I love all the sculpted gold trim on the shoes (especially… Continue Reading
Fashion illustration has an element of fantasy that photography can not replicate, however due to the advances in photography, illustration is becoming less and less relevant. Spiros Halaris’ work was introduced to me through a client, and this particular set… Continue Reading
Nicholas Kirkwood is part of a young crop of shoe designers who emerged in recent years, and has manged to build himself quite a strong business. Although I do think he has reused the same heel and platform several times,… Continue Reading
I have this insane urge to run out and buy trousers. I’ve never been a trouser type of person (I only own two pairs) but now that I am pregnant, I am totally envious of items of clothing that require… Continue Reading
The current Aldo collection is definitely one of their strongest. There were the beautiful Julian Louie shoes (I am not going to talk about those as everyone else has…) which featured some bizarre but incredible tribal-motif wedges. The main line,… Continue Reading
MM6 is Maison Martin Margiela‘s “diffusion” line. I hate to even use the word diffusion, as no normal terminology seems to apply to this brand (I mean, look at the home page of their website, above.) Even with the founder… Continue Reading
Rodarte is one of Net A Porter‘s new designers, and their stock has recently arrived on the website. I’ve never been much of a Rodarte fan (aside from the shoes,) what really bothers me about this brand is the hype.… Continue Reading
It is easy to forget the true beauty of couture. We see the elaborate runway shows and are wowed by the designs, but really, what separates haute couture from ready to wear is the construction and the details, which results… Continue Reading
It made me sad that the autumn winter 2011 catwalk shows in New York city were the whitest since 2008, with 84.8% of the models being white. I thought we had turned a new leaf, particularly with the Asian girls… Continue Reading
I love this Fred Perry collection by Richard Nicoll. I know some of it looks a bit airline attendant, but is is such a chic, cool way to re-interpret Fred Perry’s streetwear, and I love the nod to the brand’s… Continue Reading
Basically this show consists of a shiny, futuristic Armani collection. The neat tailored jackets and sweeping evening gowns were essentially the same shapes as you’d normally expect, but Armani Privé played with some very interesting fabrics. The only problem is,… Continue Reading
What’s not to love about Christian Dior Haute Couture? It feels like they are the only brand that truly does couture in the way you’d expect, each and every garment feels like a fairy tale fantasy piece. Which is what… Continue Reading
While I have never been a huge fan of Christian Louboutin shoes (a brand too closely associated to WAGs and Kardashians) his campaigns, by photographer Khuong Nguyen, are stunning. What a beautiful way to portray the product. Last season’s campaign… Continue Reading
OK, I know I talk about how much I LOVE Hermès ALL THE TIME, in fact, way too much. (Although there was once when I said something bad about them.) But this isn’t the usual Kelly bag – love their… Continue Reading
I did my spring summer 2010 ad campaign reviews a few days ago, but this one merited a post of its own. Although there is nothing groundbreaking about the concept behind this shoot, it really stands out. The colours of… Continue Reading
Actually, this should be a loathe post because I hate COS. HATE. I find it monumentally frustrating that the best clothing brand in the entire world is unavailable online, and only has a few stores dotted around Europe. COS you… Continue Reading
With spring around the corner (ok, hardly. It is still winter. But we are getting excited about spring because it means we get to buy new clothes and stop wearing tights) comes the spring and summer shopping guides. Most blogs… Continue Reading
The new season collections are coming out soon (even though it is still snowing out!) so here’s my loves and loathes of the spring summer 2011 advertising campaigns. I love… I loathe… I’m not sure…
I love these Jil Sander spring summer 2011 accessories, the plastic bag inspired pieces look so cool, the colours are bright and fun, and there is something cheery yet simple about the pieces. I love them just as much as… Continue Reading
I want this dress and I want it to be summer. Dress from Jason Matlo‘s Spring Summer 2011 Babe collection, his diffusion line. Photo by Greg Swales, model is Carolyn Geh from Lizbell.
Well, I knew I was desperately coveting the above shoes from the Lanvin Spring Summer 2011 collection, but now I have a few more pieces to add to my Lanvin wish list. All the jewelry.
I love the odd proportions and the trompe l’oeil heels in this Aperlai collection. There are so many good shoe brands out there… how is one to catch up?
When I tell my fashion students that going to fashion parties is not always fun, they look surprised. Yes, theoretically, it is fun to go to parties where there are lots of good looking people, free food and drinks, and… Continue Reading
Alberto Guardiani‘s spring summer 2011 footwear collection is amazing. I love the crazy hardware, the sailor shoes, and the lipstick heels. They are perfect I-want-to-stand-out-but-not-look-too-cutesy-or-like-a-stripper shoes.
