Sandro store launches in Westbourne Grove, London

November 29, 2010

Sandro is one of those cool French brands that fits right into a London village lifestyle.  Like Agnes B, APC and Zadig & Voltaire, Sandro’s collection of cool separates is covetable beyond imagination:  Notting Hill, rock chic ‘it’ girl meets French fashion establishment.  A marriage made in Louboutins but sporting decidedly more attitude.  And that’s why I love […]

Where floristry and fragrance combine: Jane Packer launches five scents.

November 17, 2010

It would seem a match made in heaven.  After all, it’s a natural progression from floristry to fragrance and there is an obvious symbiosis, so why was it so surprising when doyenne of all things elite and floral, Jane Packer, choose to launch fragrance in an attempt to bring pure Packer power to lovers of elite […]

A review of ‘Eternal Chanel’ by Jean Leymarie

November 16, 2010

I have always been more of a Schiaperelli girl.  Preferring the flamboyancy, the wildness and the idiosyncratic style she foisted on the Art Deco period and of the Surrealist movement that influenced her.  Elsa’s legacy lives long into fashion today as she’s undoubtedly influenced countless designers (who I wear) including Galliano, McQueen, Gaultier and Yves Saint […]

November 9, 2010

Sometimes a critic thinks they know what they’re getting only to have the rug pulled from under them and their expectations defied. ‘Drawing Fashion’, the current exhibition of fashion illustration at London’s Design Museum, was a definitive “WTF?” moment for this reviewer.  The warning signs had been there.  In his opening speech, curator and esteemed […]
