Street style photographers working with big brands may be nothing new, but I do love this collaboration between Scott Schulman of The Sartorialist and American luxury handbag brand Coach. To celebrate the launch of the AW12 Legacy Collection, the street style snapper shot a series of photographs featuring some of his favourite New Yorkers carrying their choice of bag from the Legacy range. The result feels more real and genuine than a normal ad campaign – less styles, more girl-next-door, […]

Monica Cruz may not be as famous as her older sister Penelope, but she’s definitely the showstopper as the face of Agent Provocateur‘s new AW12 campaign. Modelling 3 different styles from the new collection, Monica absolutely blew me away in these sexy images, as well as in the accompanying Victorian-inspired short film “Wilhelmina: Show Your True Self”. It may not be a Hollywood blockbuster, but Monica Cruz is undeniably the star in this one. Agent Provocateur AW12 is in stores […]
Karlie Kloss plays the bad girl in Juicy Couture‘s first ever fashion film. Shot by renowned photographers Inez & Vinoodh, the film features Karlie kicking ass left, right and center and just generally being awesome on the beaches of California, all whilst wearing her Juicy Jeans, of course. This is Girl Power 2.0 – just watch it.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Louise Gray‘s outrageously colourful collections – her AW12 show was one of my favourites of last London Fashion Week, see my review and pics here – so I happily welcome her first collaboration with Topshop, launching next week. Louise Gray’s collections are always guaranteed to transform the catwalk into a club scene, with an overload of colours, layers, materials and just full-on craziness, and whilst I’m probably way too conservative and boring to wear […]
Fashion Week is great for giving designers the opportunity to present their collections as they intended: they can show off whole looks rather than single pieces, styled the way they envisioned. A show can really create an atmosphere around the collection to explain their vision and inspiration behind their collection. That’s why I think it’s a shame high street brands don’t really feature on catwalks – granted, their collections are a lot bigger and work on different time frames, but […]
I get sent zillions (yes, it’s a word) of lookbooks every day, but few really grab my attention. So when the lookbook for RIYKA’s SS12 collection “Shake it to make it” dropped in my inbox a few months ago, it immediately caught my eye. RIYKA’s clever use of geometric shapes and colour and different material in easy sportsluxe pieces is exactly my thing. I filed it under “To Blog” – but never quite got round to it (as happens an […]
Fact: McQ is Alexander McQueen’s little brother no more. The diffusion line is finally getting the attention and credit it deserves and is coming out as a serious player. First, Sarah Burton took over as Creative Director for McQ, which seemed previously a little bit neglected. This was followed by the first ever McQ fashion show in February (which I got to attend, review here), then there’s the imminent opening of the very first standalone McQ boutique on Dover Street, […]
I was always a huge fan of “Where the wild things are” – both the children’s book as well as the incredible film adaptation from a few years back – so I absolutely adore Mulberry’s new AW12 ad campaign, shot by Tim Walker. Model Lindsay Wixson seems to find herself deep in the forest with some cute, fluffy monsters – as you do – whilst sporting Mulberry’s AW12 collection and carrying some of the label’s latest bags – the […]
I first spotted them at during Bora Aksu‘s AW12 show during London Fashion Week and haven’t been able to put them out of my head: Bracher Emden‘s bags are simply divine. The futuristic tube-like leather creations (for lack of better words to describe it) are both fun and feminine come in a clutch and a tote, exclusive to Harrods from August 31st, in a variety of colours. So when I was offered to borrow the gorgeous tote to take with […]
If you’re wondering why things have been a little quiet over the past few weeks, it’s because I’ve been trekking through London, from press day to press day. It’s been manic, it’s been exhausting, it’s been fun, and it’s not over yet. I’ve been to every corner of the city and I thought it was time to give you a little update of some of my highlights so far! More to come… Slightly obsessed with Pringle of Scotland’s AW12 shoes […]
Hindsight is a funny thing. It’s now been a month since the craziness of London Fashion Week, and I’m still chewing over the numerous shows I saw that week. Now, with a bit of space and time between the barrage of shows, I find that I’ve started seeing things slightly differently. For example, I’ve always been a huge Ashish fan, but was left feeling a bit disappointed after the AW12 show, titled “Bollywouldn’t”. Immediately after the show, I remember thinking […]
I might be an early bird, but it does take something special to get me out of bed at 9am on a Sunday morning. Margaret Howell is that something special for me, so before I even had my morning coffee, I found myself in the packed venue on Wigmore Street, which doubles as the label’s flagship stop the rest of the year. Why? Not for the spectacle, celebrity sightings or avant-garde designs. No, Margaret Howell simply just makes the clothes […]
