This first collection by designer Joanne Hynes and artist Helen Steele called “Les Guerriers” was one of my highlights during London Fashion Week. The collaboration lead to a colourful fashion show with a load of interesting textures and colours. A true gem!
Last week, I was in a bit of a top buying frenzy. One of my finds was this gorgeous silk blouse from Beyond the Valley. It was from the A/W 10 collection, and thus, on sale. I’d been eying their prints all winter but never got around to purchasing, until now. I absolutely love the soft colour combination and the print. Today is the perfect day to wear it for the first time, I can feel spring coming here in London!
The highlight of my London Fashion Week was undoubtably Mary Katrantzou. I adored the collection for Spring/Summer, the lampshade skirts she sent down the runway were real pieces of art. Unfortunately, they also have the according price tag, which means they are way out of my league at the moment.
For next A/W, Katrantzou digged a little deeper and took us inside the rooms she used as an inspiration for her last collections. She looked at the precious objects that were in these rooms and the women who owned them. Their haute couture, their Dynasty china, their Faberge eggs. And all the cultural capital this represents. Inspiration from pure luxury.
I’ve been thinking about getting my hands on a turban because of the twenties vibe for quite some time now. Seeing this young lady settles it, as she looks absolutely stunning in hers. I’m dead tired now, but expect some LFW reviews as soon as possible!
My first outfit post and what I wore to work. I love this demin shirt and wear it all the time. I found the necklace at H&M just before New Years and it reminded me of the Marni necklaces that had made me want to get a felt and gemstone necklace for some time. I like that the necklace is so over the top and can therefore only be worn during the day with a generally casual outfit.
I spotted this lovely gentleman twice at London Fashion week today and took it as a sign. I love the colours in his vest and in the buttons on his sweater! Apologies for the poor quality of the pics. Safe to say I am not the next Sartorialist.
I’ve been having a weird couple of days and London weather has been a drag, so I didn’t get a chance to snap any nice pictures. I did, however come across these pictures from Lisbon last year, which gave me a melancholic feeling.
I have had a fascination with the Andy Warhol created Superstar, Edie Sedgwick, for some time now. As Vogue named her a youthquaker, Edie was a stylemaker unlike a lot of it-girls of the moment. Therefore I wanted to post this video of the amazing Betsey Johnson who worked with Edie for almost a year as her fitting model and on the last movie she ever acted in, Ciao! Manhatten.
