So versatile ....

Tuesday, 20 October 2009


Apart from FANTASTIC CATS that is.

Takako Minekawa. This is pretty much all I'm listening to at the moment.

Kanye being Kanye

I don't think this was much of a stretch for him. Fans have whinged though and his site's just taken it down. Spike Jonze directs. Sublime....

Wisdom teeth

Misnomer if ever the was one.



Those who know me will atest to the fact that I do love a list or two. So in the spirit of consistency here is my WANTED list for this season. Woolies a-go-go....

1. Cable knit cricket sweater
2. Lifestyle Bazaar tea set (complete with cake stand)
3. A beret
4. Patent Chelsea boot DM's boots (low rent)/Mulberry boots (no rent)
5. Benetton leather patch Jodphurs
6. Lacroix leggings
7. Clear perspex rimmed glasses
8. Cashmere pyjamas
9. A harem pant that gives me an arse to speak of
10. A chainmail waistcoat - I'm not even kidding
11. A Wang bag wouldn't go amiss either but I fear this list has already got out of hand...
12. ....oh! And a Blanmange rabbit mould. There.

I fell in love with a store...

I work at the end of Carnaby Street and sometimes forget I'm 2 minutes walk away from some of the best independent stores London has to offer. I mostly avoid mooching around the area as I will undoubtedly spend $$$ I dont have. But I did venture out this week with my trusty Chunky Panda (inventor of wait...) and stumbled upon a peach of a store in the Newburgh Quarter.


Go check.

I want the entire Blau Blume tea set pleases.

(I hope the boy don't read this as a number of his presents are sourced here...)

♥ Christopher Decarnin ♥

so Paris saw the return of Balmain and the question on everyone's lips (I'm guessing) is HOW THE BEJESUS IS DECARNIN GOING TO CREATE A COLLECTION THAT EVEN EQUALS THE SUCCESS AND MAINSTREAM OSMOSIS OF S/S 09??

I obviously can't answer that but I did enjoy the show. A trend across many of this season's collections has been the military influence, coupled with burnished embellishments - lending from armour and hardware. The eponymous shoulders are back too with frayed dresses in texturised/studded rubber. Quite a dark collection for Summer season in terms of palette but I think its undoubtedly strong and has plenty to offer the high street diffusions. I can't help thinking SNAKES & SCALES are an influence too?

Here be my favourite pieces...
