Dinosaur Designs

Robust resin rings and bold bangles mostly chunky and definitely funky. Why not build up an arm full of clinky bangles? DD's have some stunning neck features to accompany that little black dress, these are not just accessories they are works of art.

Most are made from magical materials such as silver, brass, tigers eye, leather and alike. They are like a German exchange student - intellectual, unusual and have a style all of their… Continue

New York Sass

Sass and Bide’s latest show was a celebration of colour and life. Bryant Park, New York played host to this dynamic duo’s latest offering. Tie dye, sequins and fish nets would merely scratch the glittery surface. There were the usual embellishments – ruffles and ribbons, with a touch of metallic masculinity to tone the random Skittles colour palette.

The “other” Hilton sister
was present "I'm a big fan of the line,"… Continue

The Merits of a Paisley Pashmina

No girl can deny that there are a few fashion staples that are quite simply a must-have item. The obligatory skinny black jeans, a white shirt (preferably by Anne Fontaine) a pair of tan knee high boots, the Little Black Dress….the list goes on. A fashionable fact that is frequently forgotten is the faithful pashmina. Nothing can pull a look together like a paisley pashmina. Forget notions of shawl wearing frumpy horse lovers and embrace… Continue

Mulberry Magic

Thou shalt not covet? Are you kidding me? The “Agyness” has arrived. It’s a kooky, punk, Indie-hipp bag with a British twist. It has funky, chunky handles and comes in a yummy soft-grain leather.

Select from a sorbet assortment of colours: rose, coral, snakeskin, chocolate, black and white. I want, I want, I want. Named after the sensational Miss. Deyn, this is most definitely on my SS08 wish list. My tan “Bayswater”… Continue

Old school glamour versus fresh design blood

If Burberry and Aquascutum are an Earl grey sipped from the finest bone china then Chloe is a soy skinny cap. So which do we have a thirst for? The mahogany bureau of the fashion world, all smoking jackets and polished polo? Or the fresh, organic, nude, bare foot appeal of natural, breezy beauty?

Both have their place.
On the one hand it can be seen that old school design houses have had their day. Their en-vogue moment… Continue

Agyness Deyn

Joining the fashion bandwagon,
this northern Lancashire lass has clearly got sass.

Brit girl hits the runway hard with considered class.

I like her look and lurve her attitude, with ballet flats planted firmly in Humberside.

Karen Elson will no doubt feel at home with the kooky new kid on the block.

And my, can she carry a frock. Vogue's fashion pages worship this funky little… Continue

Central Stage

“The ones to watch” category at London fashion week is always an exciting prospect. When fresh young talent step skilfully out of silky little chrysalis’ and spread their beautiful design wings it’s always special to watch. It is clear that British design is in safe hands **Phew**. February 16th 2008 saw the Central Saint Martins MA graduate fashion show.

The show tent is always hot with hopeful expectation. The fashion pack… Continue

Tough Love

There’s always been something exceedingly sexy about hard edged masculine dressing. Take the Yves Saint Laurent tuxedo with slick back hair and red matte lips – *super sex appeal*.

But in an über modern milieu, zipped ankle boots, cuffs and leather bomber jackets are starting to materialize.

I’m actually really getting into innovative polished masculinity. I never thought I would love it, but love it I do. Marlene… Continue

Zadig et Voltaire

Zadig & Voltaire yum yum I could eat you, you're so delicious. Soft squishy leather luxe, understated cashmere vests with skull and dragonfly emblems. Zadig does indeed love me.

It's super-super-French- scruffy- sexy -chic - in that order!!

I love the "Muse" print frocks and my favourite mere-cash jumpers in sorbet and grey. Priced at sub-ridiculous for a nice change.

The suspense: you must… Continue

Back to the bohemian roots
of flowy Chloe. Girly-swirly patterns of floral printed tights with a tougher edge than Phoebe's feminine days. Cut-away black intricate art deco fuels rumours of a hosiery-revival.

Sheer blouses and English garden prints teamed with blue suede ankle booties and lilac leather flowers. Eye-spy a luxe leather tuxedo jacket that I yearn for. There are too many clever textile textures,… Continue

Nuclear Wintour

Not since the enigmatic Eva Peron has a woman of power been simultaneously loved and loathed as much as Anna Wintour. Feared and revered she has reigned supreme as Editor in chief of US Vogue for twenty years. She is a subject of immense intrigue: her personality and private life have baffled reporters for years.

The popular press love to caricature and Wintour plays the ice maiden role with calculated precision. Notorious for… Continue

To Tattoo or Not to Tattoo

Hmm, a hint of heart-shaped ink peeking from a slender hip – how cute? A seductive Arabic script or a chocolate scorpion emerging from a tanned ankle can both create a little mystery and intrigue n’est-ce pas?

There is nothing more emotive than a little ink art. They are sexy….they are trashy….they are shock value….they are a symbolic reminder of a life changing event.

On the flipside there's something… Continue

Knights & Narnia

Narnia was a cupboard land,
full of fanciful mystery, imagined by C.S.Lewis. A neutral palette of powder snow, fauns and ice queens. It is a magical kingdom of metallic ancient armour, crowns and castles. Such a fluffy fairytale imagination has inspired couturiers to delve into the costume box.

In the recent couture shows Jean Paul Gaultier created mythical mermaids saturated in sequins with a shell-like delicacy for… Continue

Mum's The Word: Jane & Lou

With mother’s day just a playful hop skip and a jump away, the intricacies of maternal love have consumed me. Yummy mummies have become a resilient fashion fad, but they rarely depict real life relationships between a mother and a child. The fascinating relationship between mother and daughter is a deeper connection that cannot be depicted by gloss and pap-snappy cameras. It is a connection that is formed at birth and the strongest of any… Continue

Loss of a Legend

Today, the usually frivolous chatter of the fashion world was silenced by the announcement that Yves Saint Laurent has died in Paris, aged 71.

YSL exploded onto the fashion scene in 1958 as Christian Dior’s successor and dominated both prêt a porter and couture for the latter half of the twentieth century. His influence: immense. YSL changed the way women dressed; creating pant suits and trench coats and of course the iconic… Continue
