Damien Hirst x Alexander McQueen

Damien Hirst x Alexander McQueen

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Alexander McQueen‘s iconic skull scarves, the label has collaborated with artist Damien Hirst on a range of 30 one-off designs. Adapted from Hirst’s Entomology series, which hasbutterflies, bugs, spiders and other insects worked to form kaleidoscopic geometric shapes, these were then laid out to create the signature McQueen skull motif. I love art and fashion collaborations, and this one makes total sense to me, as Hirst’s aesthetic fits seamlessly onto the McQueen scarves. The Damien […]

A stylish lunch with SONOS

A stylish lunch with SONOS

I can’t say it enough – I have the best job in the world. Although I started out in fashion, I love how this blog is giving me such a wide variety of experiences. Like last week, when I was invited to go and have an incredible lunch in a beautiful private home in London whilst experiencing and learning about the SONOS audio systems. Doesn’t get much better than that, right? Wrong. Getting not one but two SONOS PLAY:1 speakers […]

Inside Frieze Art Fair 2013

Inside Frieze Art Fair 2013

Frieze Art Fair – an annual highlight of the London art scene – has just come and gone, and as ever it was a feast for the eyes. I don’t just love the art, but I’m always secretly more excited to see the style of the people attending. As per usual, I took my trusty camera with me to capture some of the best artworks as well as outfits that caught my eye during the exclusive preview last week. There […]

Zaha Hadid x United Nude

Zaha Hadid x United Nude

In another life, I dreamt of being an architect. Sadly I sucked at physics, so somehow I ended up here instead, but my interest and passion for architecture always remained. I’ve always admired Zaha Hadid for her incredible designs, whether that’s buildings or bridges or furniture, so I was of course pretty excited to hear about her collaboration with Dutch shoe label United Nude (founded by Rem D. Koolhaas, an architect himself and nephew of the legendary Rem Koolhaas, another […]

MCM x Craig & Karl

MCM x Craig & Karl

Doing what I do, I see a lot of collaborations pop up in my inbox. A LOT. I do love a good collaboration, that special moment when two brands come together and create something new, each taking the best parts of what they do and adding it to the other’s.  Some of them can be truly great, some of them a little random but good, some of them… well.. not. Luxury accessories label MCM partnering with pop art duo Craig […]

Neon Words

Neon Words

So I have this big, empty, white wall. I sit and stare at it every single day when I’m working from my kitchen table and it just screams for something interesting to happen to it. I’ve considered photography or prints, but I’ve decided what would really look great is a neon artwork, with a word or a quote which could inspire me every day. The only problem is, I don’t think I could ever decide on what would be the […]

Fashion Books

Fashion Books

I love coffee table books. Art, fashion, architecture, design – I’ve started to build quite a collection. Nothing like seeing a designer’s entire body of work collected in one beautiful book. Nothing like flicking through the thick pages packed with incredible photography and innovation. Ok, admittedly I hardly ever actually “read” them, but then hands up if you really do? Looking at my collection as a whole, I have a worrying amount of Chanel-related books… Recently I moved some furniture […]

Desire Obtain Cherish

Desire Obtain Cherish

A couple of days ago I stumbled across these wonderful Designer Drugs images by LA artist Desire Obtain Cherish. I love when artists take every day objects and transform them into something else, something with meaning, something worth thinking about. Or perhaps it is just what it is – a fun image. Either way, I think they’re great. Wouldn’t it just be great to take a Chanel, Hermès, Louis Vuitton or YSL pill?   All images © Desire Obtain Cherish

Rob Pruitt x Jimmy Choo

Rob Pruitt x Jimmy Choo

Pop artist Rob Pruitt has collaborated with Jimmy Choo on a capsule collection featuring shoes and accessories, on sale from today. Pruitt is best known for his colourful and playful designs, often using the glittery pandas featured on many pieces of the collection. I do love it when fashion brands collaborate with artists, as the result is always a bit different and sometimes even a bit controversial (think Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton) – whilst not everything in the collection […]

Fred Butler x SWATCH

Fred Butler x SWATCH

Totally, utterly, madly in love with this collaboration between accessories designer extraordinaire Fred Butler and Swatch. It is limited edition with just 777 watches made, and comes in a gorgeous pyramid-shaped numbered case, almost too cool to wear. The watches land in stores this month and will retail at £178. Want.

Chanel’s Little Black Jacket in London

Chanel’s Little Black Jacket in London

Chanel’s exhibition “The Little Black Jacket” finally landed in London yesterday, and I was there to go check it out! The show features 113 black and white images featuring some of the world’s best known – and some perhaps not so well known – faces from the world of fashion, art, design and music shot by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld. What started off as a project for a coffee table book (which I insist you get, I […]

5 Minutes With… Supermarket Sarah

5 Minutes With… Supermarket Sarah

I first discovered Supermarket Sarah a couple of years ago when she created one of her extraordinary installations for a Tatty Devine event, and later for Selfridges. Now her work has been assembled in a book, WonderWalls, a guide to creating your own beautiful interiors and walls. To celebrate the launch, we talked to Sarah Bagner, the girl behind the wall. Hi there, who are you? I am a stylist, author, web store owner, interior designer and agent, event organiser and sometimes […]
