COMME des GARÇONS and Dover Street Market have just launched COMME DES CARRÉS, a collaboration between the avant-garde Japanese label and classic French brand Hermès. CDG put their inimitable stamp on the square Hermès silk scarves. Amongst the collection are a couple of classic carrés, with a CDG twist, like added polkadots and squares across the print – which essentially ruins it, starting at £330. There’s also a very limited edition patchwork version (which will set you back £1500), combining 4 […]

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.

Starts Monday April 2nd, 7am on Achica.com

In honour of 20 years of Hermès at Harrods, the luxury label has opened a pop up celebrating one of their most iconic accessories (no, not the Birkin!): the silk scarf. The luxurious printed silk scarves have been a vital part of Hermès since 1937 and have been a coveted must-have for generations of women (and men) ever since. The pop up aims to attract a younger crowd, with stylists on hand to show you the scarves’ endless styling possibilities. […]
Call me a cheeky little bugger, but it’s never too early to start dropping unsubtle hints about what you’d like to get for your birthday, right? With my 26th less than 2 weeks away, I thought I’d put together a helpful list of things I wouldn’t mind unwrapping. But you know, I’m not difficult or picky or anything. No way… 1: Vintage Boston Caviar Skin Chanel Travel Bag, from Vintage Paris I’ve never seen anything like this bag from Chanel […]
