House of Hackney x ASOS

House of Hackney x ASOS

You may not know House of Hackney yet, but  I promise you, you will do soon enough: it is one of those cult labels that’s quietly been growing over the past few seasons and getting stronger and bigger with every passing one. Originally founded by a London-based husband-and-wife team as an interiors brand, their signature prints are original and fun and as good as they look on sofas, cushions and wallpaper, I simply adore them even more on their clothing. Now […]

The Magic of You And Me by Kipling

The Magic of You And Me by Kipling

Ahh December…  That month we seem to do endless gift shopping, enjoy the pretty Christmas lights on the streets and the amazing window displays in shops everywhere. This year, Belgian accessories label Kipling is doing something a little different with their windows… this Christmas season, you are the window display. With the new  “The Magic of You And Me” campaign, Kipling is celebrating the one gift that money can’t buy: friendship. In the windows of the 6 London stores, you share […]

Georgia Hardinge For River Island (Part 2)

Georgia Hardinge For River Island (Part 2)

  Following the success of her first collaboration with River Island Design Forum, Georgia Hardinge returns for a second helping of her signature sculptural designs. Similar to the first collection, the focus is on a great digital print (based on folding books into a sculpture), mixed with some origami-style details and folding techniques. There’s  figure hugging dresses, a blouse (on my wishlist!), crop tops, neoprene pieces, skirts, a maxi dress and even leggings all in the statement black & white […]

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 […]

First Look Inside Chanel’s New Bond Street Flagship

First Look Inside Chanel’s New Bond Street Flagship

This morning I had the immense pleasure of being the very first person to walk through the doors of the impressive newly-opened flagship Chanel maison on Bond Street. 18 months in the making, the boutique is an impressive 12.600 square foot heaven over 3 floors where Chanel lovers (like myself!) can enjoy every aspect of the iconic French fashion house. Chanel 158 New Bond Street was designed by renowned architect Peter Marino – who incidentally is also responsible for the […]

Goodbye, 2012!

Goodbye, 2012!

Another year is coming to an end. 2012 will go down in history as a year which had both the best and worst of times, professionally and personally. Needless to say, I’m very, very happy to see the back of 2012 and embrace 2013 with open arms, as it signifies a new start for me. But before we start a fresh new year, I’d like to have a little look back on some of my personal blogging highlights from 2012! […]

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 […]

Elizabeth Taylor’s Collection To Be Auctioned At Christie’s

Elizabeth Taylor’s Collection To Be Auctioned At Christie’s

If there’s one thing I immediately think of when someone mentions Elizabeth Taylor – other than her incredible love life and many marriages – it’s her diamonds, her huge, shiny, sparkly diamonds. Which, of course, are inevitably linked to her tumultuous love life… An icon in every sense of the word, Elizabeth Taylor was definitely one of the last remaining stars from Hollywood’s Golden Era, a time of seemingly neverending parties, the couture gowns, the jewellery, the intriguing love lives […]

People watching at Frieze Art Fair 2011

Yesterday I attended the preview of the prestigious Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park. Here’s what you should know about art fairs: other than the fashion weeks they are the best place to spot Fashion with a capital F. Do you ever wonder who actually buys those incredible clothes and accessories you see on catwalks and in magazines? It’s the art folk. Well booted and accessorised, wearing some amazing – but always understated – designers, this is one of the […]
